We had a great stay! The apartment was as advertised - spacious and clean. The hosts greeted us very warmly upon arrival, providing some welcome goodies, history of the house and area, and showing us how to use the amenities. The area was quiet and picturesque - a perfect retreat if you're spending the days in the bigger cities. Internet was very handy for planning and for the kids. Thanks again Marusca.
The house was wonderful! perfect for us. We had a great time and had all that we needed. The place is very clean and comfortable. The location is good as well at a nice and peaceful village.
Marusca and her husband are very nice and they make us feel at home.
This is a very good place, Marusca & family are deserving of all their good reviews. We were treated to an excellent & generous Tuscan family dinner at the end of our month long stay, which was a highlight of our trip. We have no hesitation to recommend this rental!
The outdoor spaces are large, and there is an outdoor charcoal grill. The house is properly restored with high quality doors & windows, screens + shutters on all the windows. It is a true 3 bedroom/2 bathroom, larger inside than it appears in the photos. There is a fireplace for a wood fire which we used many evenings (bought the firewood at the grocery). There is a smaller, completely separate unit on the ground level, however the entrance for this unit is on the other side of the house so we rarely saw/heard the other guest. The hosts parents live 200 meters away and are available if needed for any problems, but were not obtrusive. We did have two minor plumbing problems which were dealt with immediately. WiFi was fast enough and trouble-free.
Here are a few more points that may help families plan travel here (we are a family of 4, two boys age 10 and 11):
1) The house is an easy 800 m walk to the village with sparse, sensible traffic on the way. It seemed safe enough that the kids could walk to the village themselves in daytime.
2) Likewise the gravel farm roads behind the house were quiet and we used them as our running route with no problems.
3) The village (Castiglion Fibocchi) had everything we needed and we had good, friendly service everywhere (despite speaking almost no Italian). For more choice in shopping & restaurants, we went in to Arezzo (15 minute drive) from time to time.
4) Families probably want a car here to do day trips to Arezzo, Siena, Florence, spa/thermal baths, etc., but there seemed to be regular regional buses through the village - confirm this with the hosts if travelling without a car.
5) The 'Il Gigante' adventure park (rope courses and ziplines) near Florence was a hit with our boys - we went there a couple of times.
6) We were here off-season (Oct 20 - Nov. 20) so the pool (and the larger pool at a hotel nearby) were closed - kids' pools (ie. with water slides, etc.) seem to all be outdoor and close in fall & winter. There are community centre pools in Arezzo, and kids are welcome in the thermal baths pools, but one adult must go in with them if under 14 years.
What can one say about a place that you felt like royalty. The Holiday House was beyond beautiful and the view was just phenomenal. Both Marusca and her husband Gianni were wonderful hosts. They took care of us like we were their best friends. The rooms were very spacious and quite comfortable and there is not enough I could say to about how we felt staying here. I totally recommend it to anyone that wants to stay and relax or like us travel by day but make it back by evening and enjoy the surroundings. There was a great bakery (YUM) and we visited two grocery stores but liked the selection in DESPAR more. Gianni recommended a few restaurants and he was right--the service and the people who worked there and owned them were very hospitable. Thank you for everything!! TOTALLY RECOMMEND--BEAUTIFUL PLACE
After a whirlwind tour of Europe, we had been looking forward to relaxing at Marusca's house in Tuscany. And it was fabulous! The house is beautiful, and obviously has been renovated with love and care. Marusca was a lovely host, welcoming us with a bottle of wine from her father-in-law's vineyard, breakfast goodies and biscotti. Castiglion Fibocchi is a very quiet town, but the locals are welcoming and the pizza fantastic.
Just a word of warning about Sundays – pretty much everything is shut, so if you're not after pizza for dinner then it's worth stocking up! We ate in most of the time we were there, and used the barbecue.
We highly recommend Marusca's as a place to stay in Tuscany! We stayed in AirBnbs for most of the time we were in Europe, and Marusca's was by far the nicest (and best value for money). It's also a quick drive from Arezzo, which conveniently has a car rental opposite the train station.
We are a family of 5 and stayed at La Campanelle for 3 days in August, in the top apartment of the house. We found it large, well appointed and spotless. We were welcomed by Marusca's in-laws and had a booklet with instructions and suggestions of visits. The garden is pleasant and the kids enjoyed the pool. We enjoyed BBQing one night.
A truly lovely appartment in Tuscany. Spacious rooms and common space. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The hosts could not have been more nice and welcoming -- giving us several recommendations for activities in the area and a bottle of their family wine. The pool outside is a wonderful addition! We had a truly memorable stay.
