We were visiting friends nearby over Christmas, and this was a fab place to stay. It was our first visit to Citta della Pieve, which we absolutely loved - historic, atmospheric, friendly and with beautiful views down the hills on every side. The apartments are newly designed within an ancient house in the old town - It’s fresh and contemporary while still preserving the venerable feel of this townhouse just inside the medieval walls. We were lucky with some lovely weather during our Christmas stay, and so particularly enjoyed views of fantastic blue skies through the roof window above the mezzanine bed in the Top Suite. The downstairs living area is really comfortable; the bathroom is stylish, with lovely organic toiletries; the whole place is immaculately clean and very cosy; really good wifi signal. The owner, Anne, came round after we'd settled in and her in-depth advice on the surrounding area and local eateries, shops etc was really helpful. Organic teas, biscuits and fruit were left for us, and there's a kettle and coffee-maker for snacks and breakfast. Anne’s husband – a keen cyclist – even took my equally bike-obsessed husband out on a long ride one day. We’re already planning our next visit.
