Luigi's house is the best spot for Tuscany tour! We stayed at Luigi's house for 5 unforgetable days. He is the perfect host, always there to help you even before he actually meets you. We all felt "at home". If you are planning to see Tuscany's villages, Luigi's house is the best spot. We decided to stay in one place and make daily trips; we visited Montepulciano, Montefollonico, Pienza, Montalcino, Chianti Valey and its villages, Florence, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Siena, Arezzo, Cortona and some other places and the longest drive was 2 hours (by car). The house has everything that someone might need, it is very well equipped and with BREATH-TAKING views outside! Those were 5 days to remember and looking forward to get back there! See you soon, Luigi!

Luigi was great. He was not available when we arrived, but he made sure that his friend and father were there to greet us. The apartment is homely, had everything we needed, and was a great location in between the major sights (Siena, Florence, Rome), and all the small hill-towns of Tuscany. The recommendations and resources left in the apartment were very helpful as well! The only (minor) issue was that the WiFi did not work well. Highly recommend Luigi's apartment!

Our stay in Asciano was wonderful. The apartment feels as if you are in the country yet you are close to the town. It is easy to travel to other towns from here and always nice to return to the quiet of this spot. Luigi and Tatjana prepared the unit as if their best friends were coming to visit. Everything was clean and in working order and they had many basic supplies on hand for our use. The wine, cookies, fruit, water, coffee, etc. were a bonus and much appreciated. There were 4 of us for 6 days. No complaints!! Would love to return.

The title of the add describes it perfectly, "A charming house in Asciano", that's exactly what it is. Luigi is a nice guy, very helpfull, a bottle of wine and some fruit as a welcome and a fully equipped house to spend a holiday, we barbecued twice, even the charcoal was there. Lot's of tips for restaurants from Luigi. And a big swimming-pool to cool down. Perfect place to discover Toscany!

My wife and I stayed at Luigi's apartment for 5 wonderful nights. Before arriving Luigi confirmed our arrival and made sure we knew exactly how to get there. Upon arrival we were greated by Luigi and a basket full of supplies(wine,bread,coffee) that he thought we may need because the grocery store was closed on Sunday. As far as the apartment and location there is only one word to describe: perfect! We walked to town several times for dinner, to go to the grocery store and one day we made the 10 minute walk to the train station to take a day trip to Florence. Being wine drinkers we loved the location of Asciano as it is nicely located between Montalcino and Montepulciano and just south of the Chianti region. We did a few wine tours during the day and then we would bring wine back with us to Luigi's and just sit, enjoy the wine and take in the stunning views from one of the many outdoor sitting areas. The apartment had a very nice kitchen that was stocked with all of the cooking utensils that you could need. The pool was a nice oasis to relax at and the views from the apartment were incredible. We spent 18 days on our trip to Italy and this by far was the hardest place to leave during our trip. Luigi was a great host and we will for sure be back.

My family and I had a great stay at Luigi's apartment in Asciano. It's a great location for exploring the area and the property is also perfect for relaxing around the pool with views over the Tuscan hills. Luigi was very friendly and left a lot of information about the surrounding area and idea's for days out. He also helped with suggestions of restaurants when needed at short notice. We have stayed a several places and Luigi's is one of the best kitted out for cooking etc.
