This accommodation was excellent, far exceeding our expectations. Francesco, the owner, lives adjacent to the house and is very helpful in ensuring that all needs are met. The house is located in a charming, quiet section of old Cetona. It is spacious and very well-equipped, with sweeping views of Monte Cetona and the surrounding countryside from the upstairs sitting room. Despite its quiet location, it is only a short walk to the busy Piazza Garibaldi with its array of restaurants and shops. After one week, we wished we had booked a longer stay. Highly recommended!

We had a great time at Alessandro &Francescos place. The apartment is centrally located to visit small towns in the area. Apartment was well equipped and we weren't in need of anything. Communication was very good. Can definitely recommend!

A highlight of our trip, both the village of Cetona and the house in particular were absolutely stunning. We loved every minute of it and will be back for sure!

The experience staying in Cetona was magical. This has been my favorite Airbnb experience ever. The house has everything that you need, and its decor is impeccably good. Francesco was there to be of great help to my friend and I when we had to rent a car or supermarket shopping. He really went above and beyond any expectations of how a host should be. We are grateful for his generosity and kindness. The people of Cetona are very friendly, and the food at the restaurant in the piazza is amazing. If you want a quiet, peaceful and relaxing stay in Tuscany, this is it. We really fell in love with the town. I have no doubt that I will be back. The town is about 20 minutes from the closest train station. But it's easy to catch a cab for 18 euro or so to Chiusi or taking the bus (which has a more infrequent schedule). Thank you Francesco and Alessandra for making this an unforgettable experience!

Our stay in Cetona was wonderful. Alessandra's home was lovely. Francesco met us and helped us with our luggage (we had a lot!) and even though we were late arriving, he was very gracious. This trip was a girls getaway ( there were 3 of us ). We had plenty of space and felt very safe and welcomed in town. We stayed here for 5 days, and hated to leave. Thank you Alessandra and Francesco for helping to make this a trip of a lifetime!

A beautiful house in a lovely setting, and we had a warm welcome from Alessandra and Francesco. The village of Cetona is a nice place to stay for a few days, and it was a good base for visiting Montepulciano, Montalcino, Lake Trassimeno and the South Tuscany countryside. The house had loads of character and everything we needed for some lovely meals in.

This was a wonderful house = with a personality of the owners - so not an anonymous interior - we wanted a small town experience and it was that- and quite interesting for us.
