Choosing Giulio's apartment in San Quirico D'Orcia was the best choice we made to know Tuscany. The apartment is beautiful with everything we needed, very clean and decorated in a particular way that let you go back in time to the thirteenth century. It has good restaurants nearby and is ideal for visiting from there all the cute places that Tuscany has to offer. At our arrival Claudia was very kind and gave us all the information we needed. The experience in "Poliziano" is totally recommended.
Esperienza stupenda. Accoglienza meravigliosa di tutta la famiglia Alberti e sopratutto di Caterina, sempre disponibile per risolvere qualsiais problema, oltre ad essere una bravissima pasticcera.
La Vite si trova in una delle strade più charmose di Pienza che è tutta carina.
Vicina ai principali monumenti e a due passi della bellissima vista della Valle d'Orcia.
Attorniata da ristoranti e piccole botteghe dove si può comperare il famoso pecorino, salumi e vini per un pic nic sotto il sole.
Camera gradevole, bagno moderno, pulizia perfetta e costante. Letto confortevole e biancheria pulitissima.
Pienza is a beautiful old town and this apartment is located in the heart of its historic center, with a stunning view of the countryside right out the kitchen and bedroom windows. Besides the great location, the place is very comfortable, tastefully furnished, and spacious. We loved it! Thank you, Giulio!
Perfect place to stay if traveling through this area. Very quiet town and easily accessible to bigger attractions with rental car. Having no WiFi was actually a blessing as it allowed is to really enjoy the pace and simplicity of the town.
Good little spot. Very convenient if you want to stay within Pienza walls. Self contained and has everything you need. Beautiful view. The host speaks good English, however the person that meets you to check in does not, so difficult to communicate. The apartment wasn't cleaned whilst we were there, and we were under the impression it would be, but that obviously got lost in translation. Don't count on breakfast. Previously our accommodation has included breakfast, and it has been amazing food and variety, so maybe our expectations were elevated. I wouldn't expect a few juice boxes and a couple of packets of biscuits would satisfy many. Otherwise it was a good stay.
We so enjoyed our stay in Pienza.......what a view from our Giulios apartment! And the village and surrounding areas totally beautiful. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Giulio and mrs Rosella were so helpful and friendly.....which makes a difference when in another country.
The only drawback for us was lack of space for our suitcases but who cares in that environment.
Thank you. :)
We stayed at "Il Caselo" between 2nd-20th of May . On our arrival Sra. Rossella welcomed us very warmly. The appartment is nice, not luxurious but comfortable and well equiped. It gave us a homy feeling whenever we came back after a long day of traveling.We enjoyed cooking our own meals and had everything needed. Our stay would be perfect were it not the noise.The apartment is located near the Wall promenade and a lot of tourists are passing by the windows.More than that, there is a Bar at the next building which is opened late, especially during the weekends and we had to close all the windows to sleep.Overall we enjoyed staying there and felt much at home.
Abbiamo trascorso un gradevolissimo soggiorno nella casa ''bomboniera'' di Giulio ! La casa è veramente curata fin nei minimi dettagli; è pulita ,comoda e soprattutto ''funzionante'' . Si trova proprio nel bellissimo centro storico di S.Quirico e a pochissimi chilometri dai posti più belli della Val d'Orcia. La consigliamo vivamente a tutti. Noi ci torneremo presto !
Appartamento stupendo in una location superba: aprire le finestre al mattino e perdersi nei paesaggi della Val d'Orcia è meraviglioso. Grazie dell'accoglienza!
The apartment had a phenomenal location and was very clean. However, our checkin felt rushed with Ms. Rosella as she whisked us through how to turn the gas on, open windows, etc. She received several phone calls and seemed to be in a hurry to move on to other things. That aside, we loved the apartment and Pienza and would stay again.
Ms. Rossella has only difficulty with English, but it is a very courteous and helpful. Unfortunately the Easter period in which you were our guest there are many arrivals and departures and Ms. Rossella has to cope with all these situations. We have a great respect for all of our guests and keep to them, for this I will be very grateful if you considererare the mitigating and correcting your check-in with a better grade.
