The Noceta is a fraction of the medieval village of Castiglion Fiorentino place of the Tuscan hills a few kilometers from Arezzo and Cortona. In this pleasant setting you will find our accommodation. The Noceta is a structure composed of 2 apartments: Hydrangea House and House Pomegranate restored at different times.
Pomegranate House, is a land ceiling of 3 floors, each of 40 square meters each. On the ground floor is the kitchen, the dining room-living room with fireplace, and the first bathroom with shower. The input consists of a quaint gazebo where you can dine while admiring the views over the medieval castle of Montecchio.
On the first floor is the first large double bedroom spacious and bright with fitted wardrobes, a second bathroom with a bathtub.
On the second floor, in the attic there is a second double bedroom.
At guests' disposal there is a garden with table, chairs and barbecue, next to it is a small outbuilding that can be used as storage. In the upper garden is an above ground pool where you can find relief through fine sunny summer days.
Baby cot on request, included in the price.
A beautiful house in a small village, in between groves. For those who arrive by car only. Very romantic and recommended for seclusion and quiet. We enjoyed our stay. We didn't meet Elena but the person who met us (can't remember her name) was very kind, showed us how to get to the house and even gave us tomatoes from the garden near the house. Would gladly recommend this place.
Elenais a great host, and we were “upgraded” to her house “next-door”. So this review is of the larger (4 bedroom house). The house has two showers and two toilets, so for us (a group of four), we had no problems – the bedrooms were large and comfortable. We had a bedroom with views to die for!
The house is difficult to find without help, but Elena’s father took us to the Villa, and whilst language is always a barrier – we got on well. It is a great location as a base for touring the region.
Only one word of warning – watch out for the mozzies – they are on steroids!
It is a great location as a base for touring the region.
Excellent visit and we took many fond memories home with us.
Elena and her family were fantastic.. They welcomed us warmly and with a pie. House was clean and include everything you need. Perfect place if you want to be in nature and solitude.. Only thing is, house is a little bit far from town so there is no market, house or shop to buy something.. Finally it's hard to find home at night because roads are a little bit complicated. Highly recommended house and host!!!
The apartment of Elena is ideal for 2 people and very well furnished. There is everything you need if you like to cook. It is located in a very quiet place with a beautiful view. It is an ideal location to stay: many nice places are reachable on a day trip. We really enjoyed to stay there.
Elena and her family were very welcoming.
Elena's house was quite lovely and spacious. My husband and I stayed 4 nights, and we enjoyed toscan atmosphere in the area. Elena and her family were very welcoming, and especially her mother's homemade pie was great!
We had such a good time here, the house is really clean and the area is beautiful. We got a surprise delicious pie waiting for us on our arrival and needless to say it was gone in seconds (I blame Jessica for that).
I hope to be back soon!
We spent 3 lovely days of our honeymoon in Italy here and it was stunning. Elena and her daughter were very welcoming, helpful and generous. The house was clean and comfortable. The endless rain did not even bother us as it was so beautiful. Close to Arezzo and Cortona which we visited also by car. Highly recommended!
Our stay was a Tuscan dream. Elena corresponded very well with us in the booking and check in process, and where her English failed her, her daughter assisted.
The house was adorable! An authentic Tuscan villa. It was very spacious and garnished with oh so Italian touches. It was perfect for a countryside retreat and as a base to explore the surrounding towns (Cortona!!!). We used the house as a base to visit Florence (catching the train in one day), Cortona and the billions of other picturesque towns surrounding it.
There is literally a view of the castle out the bedroom window and the most amazing view of the walled city. What days we didn't spend exploring we spent on the sun lounges sipping wine and taking in the county vibes.
Elena was an amazing host who greeted us with homebaked deliciousness! She popped in from time to time with fire wood when it was cold and sun lounges when it was sunny. A very attentive host and an unforgettable stay.
Elena è stata gentilissima! Sua mamma ci ha recuperato ed accompagnato appena arrivati a Castiglion Fiorentino!
La casa è carinissima e accogliente! (Basti dire che nessuno ha sentito la sveglia la mattina dopo!)
Turisti keep in mind la Noceta!
Une belle maison de campagne, très spacieuse et bien équipée, un accueil irréprochable (on se sent comme chez soi) et une belle vue sur la campagne toscane. Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse !!
