Other Things to Note
minimum stay: 3 nights
Marcello was at the house to welcome us however we were late arriving therefore didn't meet as he had to head back to Rome. We found him helpful by phone (we got lost looking for the house) and he arranged for his cleaner to meet us for which we were thankful.
The accommodation was clean and tidy however rather dated decor and furniture.
Cetona area was a lovely area to visit. You do require a car though to get out and about the beautiful region.
This was a great place! The pictures are realistic. Indeed a beautiful house, a clean and nice swimmingpool , a beautiful location, with stunning views. Cetona is a small, beautiful village, with everything we needed. Siena, Montepulciano and other interesting towns are nearby. We received a very warm welcome by Anna, she was very helpful. It is very easy to communicate with Marcello. He even speaks some Dutch ! We can definitely recommend this house and love to come back one day.
We were looking for a nice place, in Italy (Tuscany) and found with the "lovely house on top of the hill" our paradise. We were greeted with a traditional cake, wine, water etc. by Anna. The love Anna support Marcello in the care of the guests. She visited us every few days and inquired discreetly about our well-being. At the same time, she supplied our grandsons, Ole and Till with fresh fruits (apricots) from her garden. Ole and Till have Anna in their hearts. The house and the area is a quiet place for relaxing, also for active sports like mountain biking, walking and hiking, or only for to do nothing and watching the wonderfull nature, or using the well maintained pool. Who puts on cultural value, will find in the nearby towns Cetona, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Castiglione del Lago, Chiusi, Siena etc. interesting things to see. Inside the house we could find everything its necessary to feel well. The lovely house is pretty decorated with many pictures and posters. After 3 weeks we don`t want to leave this beautiful place, but with a tear in our eyes we had to go home, because our vacation was over.
Thank you for welcome us, Marcello and Anna.
