Giulio's home is set in the most idilic of settings. It is perfect and we were very fortunate to be able to stay there. Giulio gave us lots of information about the area and places that we can visit. This was all good information. The house is set in the village of Pienza, beautiful inside, and a perfect view of Tuscany. There are free car parking spaces just below the house (2 minutes walk). It was easy to get a space even in the main season. Cannot fault at all and would recommend as it is central to the whole area.

Guilio's apartment is in an amazing location. It has the best views, looking out over the Val d'Orcia, in Pienza whilst being only steps away from all the shops, bars and restaurants of this beautiful town. The perfect Renaissance piazza designed for Pope Pius II is literally just round the corner. The apartment itself, on the ground floor of an ancient building, is decorated and furnished with great flair and taste. We loved it and would strongly recommend it as a base from which to visit this lovely area of Tuscany.

Giulio's "Il Casello" charming apartment in Puenza was a perfect place to explore Val d'Orcia. Nicely situated at the top of the hill, apartment have excellent location and everything you wish for: if you prefer romantic meal with your lovely one, or to taste various wines, cheese or other Toscana specialties, or do hiking to nearby villages, or just drive around, ... Giulio is a great host, and he welcomed us upon our arrival and showed us apartment. Apartment is very authentic and has a lot of history. Photos in Airb&b are accurate representation of the place. We recommend Giulio's place. thanks Giulio!

Stayed in Giulio's place for 3 nights while attending a friend's wedding in Pienza. This place was perfect - you have excellent views out over the valley and ample parking in town makes it easy for driving. The place itself stays cool even during the day, which was great. Everything was as described but staying in this place made my trip so much better!

Not only was Guilio's place the perfect location in Pienza, and beautifully furnished with everything we needed, Guilio was extremely helpful and the perfect host when we were late to arrive. Pienza is the perfect place to stay if you're in Tuscany. Charming!!!

Location! Location! Location! Beautiful views over the Val d'Orcia. The apartment is well equipped with everything a guest needs. It was clean and comfortable. Good bed and mattress. Giulio definitely knows what a traveler needs. Good Italian coffee was provided and even toast, jam and biscuits. We just bought pecorino (which you need to do in Pienza) and breakfast was sorted. I will certainly stay in this apartment again.

We enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect with lovely views. The parking lot was hard to find at first but then very accessible to the flat and at no charge. Giulio was very nice to deal with.
