The Becatinni apartment was all that it advertised it would be, Our northern view down the valley to Florence was wonderful. Access to the train station was one of the keys for choosing this location. Once we learned the schedules we could be in Florence to transfer within an hour. We also had an auto for other local sightseeing. Everything we saw was within 30 minutes to 2.5 hours by either method. All in all we visited more than 20 villages and communes throughout Toscana. Also note the value of the gourmet food prepared n the restaurant below. Danilo and Lorenzo were very helpful with orientation and directions when needed. We will miss our nightly bottle of wine while enjoying the view down the valley.
Nous avons passé quelques jours très agréables chez Danilo. L'appartement est simple mais bien équipé. Il a surtout une terrasse avec une vue magnifique, où il fait bon manger le soir en regardant s'illuminer la vallée. Le village de Poggio alla croce est un bon point de départ pour visiter la Toscane, notamment Sienne, Florence, Pise...
Et la cuisine de Danilo vaut le détour : les enfants en parlent encore!!!
Un grand merci pour tout
My wife Sue and I spent the month of April 2013 in the Castagno apartment. The apartment is really quite comfortable, with a nice view from the bedrooms looking west across the Chianti countryside towards Florence. The Becattini family are warm, loving and open. They were kind and helpful in so many ways. Lorenzo, the son, speaks excellent English, but the whole family really tries to communicate even if your Italian is not the best. One special added treat is being so close to their family restaurant. Danilo is the chef and owner; his Florentine steak is fantastic and the other Tuscan dishes are delicious as well. We hope to return again very soon. Be sure to sign up for Danilo's cooking lessons--lots of fun and the food you make is great.
Overall it is a very nice appartment, ideal for couples or friends. Danilo and his son Lorenzo (who speaks english) are very welcoming and gave some tips on going to Florence / other towns in the area. Lorenzo was very kind to help us when we needed some help in Italian. The apartment offers stunning views - especially at sunrise and sunset. Only drawback of the apartment could be that you might need to have a car. I did not notice many public transport buses plying, but it might be a good idea to ask Danilo / Lorenzo for further info on this. However, as long as you have a car, you will definitely enjoy the surrounding vineyards and beautiful views around the area. Thanks Danilo and Lorenzo (and your family) for our great stay!
