This place was absolutely PERFECT. It's in the most idyllic location, looking out over the rolling hills of Tuscany. Me and my fiance actually got engaged here! I highly recommend it. Giulio is also very helpful indeed.
Ottimo b&b nel cuore di Pienza!! Stanza molto carina e pulitissima, ad accoglierci anche un mini-spumante e degli ottimi biscotti. Gentilissimi e cordiali Giulio e sua figlia Caterina, che è anche la cuoca delle deliziose torte della colazione. Lo raccomandiamo sicuramente!
The apartment is just as described. It is very clean and tidy and has everything you need. Signora Claudia (who received us) is a very kind person. She was caring about us especially guiding to the apartment. The village is very beautiful, nice to walk around and travel withing the beautiful Tuscany/Lazio/Umbria countryside. Recommended!!!.
Casa incantevole nel centro di un magnifico borgo!
Ho apprezzato molto la disponibilità della signora Rossella che nonostante il nostro arrivo fuori dal suo orario lavorativo, ci ha accolti prontamente e gentilmente in casa!
Molto gradita ed inaspettata la colazione con caffe per la moka e biscotti vari, non credevo che fosse inclusa!
Arredamento molto curato ed atmosfera perfetta per una coppia!!
Poi che dire, Pienza è fantastica!
This is an amazing opportunity to stay in an ancient 'castle' but have all the modern amenities, too! The apartment was just as described. When we arrived in November it was very chilly but warmed up quickly and was a cozy and inviting space, and the small walled village is absolutely charming! We had no trouble finding it with our car's GPS and Giulio's great directions. He was a great host, even sending us bike maps in advance. I would highly recommend Giulio's apartment as a base for exploring Umbria/Tuscany.
Soggiorno fantastico! La camera è meravigliosa, pulita e confortevole, l'intera struttura è davvero splendida. La colazione ottima e direi più che abbondante! Il signor Giulio ci ha fornito tutte le informazioni necessarie e Caterina è stata davvero gentilissima e disponibile a tutte le richieste. Consigliatissimo, un'ottimo punto di partenza per visitare le bellezze della Val d'Orcia.
I would totally recommend to anyone interested in spending an unforgettable Tuscan experience to stay at Giulio's ideal flat in San Quirico d'Orcia. Thanks Giulio!
Staying at Il Casello is a great way to really appreciate the ambience of Renaissance Italy within Pienza and the Val D'Orcia region. As per our previous post, we enjoyed our previous stay of three days so much that we deliberately made the effort to come back to Il Casello for longer. This time, it was early Autumn which allowed us to appreciate the post-harvest colours of the Val D'Orcia. Further, Giulio and Signora Rossella are exceptional hosts whom did their best to facilitate our late check-in, as well as last minute changes to our scheduling. I hope to be back again, next time in Summer to see the Val D'Orcia in its golden glory. Arrivederci Giulio and Signora Rossella!
We stayed in the wonderful apartment Poliziano in San Quirico for one week. The apartment is very nice and you have what you need. There are many nice restaurants from walking distance. We got all the information we needed from Giulio. Thank you!
