Beautifully decorated accommodation as described. Helpful host, who provided helpful local information.
Lovely little place situated in a real authentic part of Tuscany, felt like a scene from a movie. The views from the house and garden were beautiful. Roberta's daughter was very helpful and friendly.
Wonderful place in the castle overlooking a 200 inhabitants village. Rooms perhaps not as big as wide angle camera can see it, but ambience of the place and views from the windows are worth much much more! Plus very well equipped (even coffee, tea and some spices).
Thank you very much for this great pleasure of having "Tignano castle" as home for two days!
Very nice apartment on a beautiful location. Great to explore surrounding cities like Greve, San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena and Florence. One of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany. Communication with Roberta and Rebecca was very easy. Definitely recommended!
We stayed for 5 nights at Roberta's gorgeous place. It is like a dream! Absolutely gorgeous views of Tuscany. The flat itself is decorated very tastefully and all was clean. You definitely need a car to stay here. Roberta's daughter was very kind and was there to greet us and even saw us out. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
Roberta and her daughter Rebecca were wonderful hosts! They provided my husband and I with a great map specifically of the Chianti region which was great for navigating the scenic smaller roads and made recommendations for nearby towns to visit.
The apartment was as we expected from the photos, if not better. The bed was oriented differently than in the photos and did not have the mosquito netting, but the new layout allowed you face the window when waking up. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The views are spectacular! So picturesque. We enjoyed reclining in the private garden and cooking in the kitchen.
There are no shops in Tignano, so we recommend you stop at a market or supermarket (there is a small one in Barberino nearby) on your drive for food and drinks for your stay. A car is a must for staying here. There is a large parking lot below the castle where you can park. We took the scenic drive (not the autostrada) from the apartment to both Siena and Florence and it was between 1 hr - 1.5 hrs to either city. We recommend visiting Barberino (next town over) for the wine tasting at La Spinosa and dinner at Ristorante Cortefreda. We enjoyed the apartment itself as it was homey and relaxing, and it's location was great as our home base for visiting Siena, Florence, and exploring Chianti towns.
Conocimos a Rebeca, hija de Roberta, apenas llegamos. Muy amable nos indico donde podiamos comer, q lugares conocer y como manejarnos. El lugar es impresionante!!! Me tenia que pellizcar para darme cuenta que no estaba soñando.. realmente un sueño. El departamento igual. Era mas de lo que habia visto en las fotos. Volveria, volveria!!! Graciasssss Roberta y Rebeca por compartir ese lugar maravilloso!!
