Staying with Valeria on her families beautiful estate was one of the most memorable stays I've had on AirB&b. Valeria is well informed about her family's wine business, is a gracious, witty host and simply fun to be around. La Casetta was perfect and we hated to leave. This area of Tuscany is spectacular and I highly recommend a stay there. Thank you Valeria. We will return.
Très bon séjour chez Valeria ! La maison est charmante, tout près de Sienne, au milieu des vignes... et petite surprise, un gâteau et des œufs frais nous attendaient à l'arrivée :)
Valeria, merci pour ta disponibilité et tes bons conseils (les charcuteries de ton boucher... miam). La visite des caves et la dégustation, tout était parfait (comme ton français d'ailleurs) !
Quiet peaceful retreat. We felt like we were in a small village. Siena skyline views from the apartment and nothing to wake you up in the morning except the sound of the baker delivering your Tuscan bread to your front door. Lovely welcome treats for our arrival
Thanks to Valeria's Mum and Dad for looking after us.
This is an amazing place to stay in the Chianti Wine region near Sienna. It is a beautiful area and the Losi family are very accommodating. Dinner recommendations left by the Losi family provided amazing meals with great wine. The Losi family chianti wine is amazing!
This was our favorite place that we stayed at while we were in Italy. When we arrived, Valeria's mother showed us around the casetta. Even though she didn't speak English and we didn't speak Italian, she did a wonderful job explaining everything we needed to know. We also went on a tour of the wine cellars and had a wine tasting with Valeria's father. The tour was great and the wine even better! We would stay here again in we were ever back in the area.
La casetta del Telegrafo ist eine wunderbare Unterkunft mit liebevollen Gastgebern, in kurzer Entfernung zu Siena und einer Menge weiterer sehenswerter Orte, gleichzeitig aber mitten in den Weinbergen des Chianti-Gebietes liegend, tolle Aussicht auf Siena und auch toller Wein, bei den Gastgebern zu kaufen.
Alles wunderbar und unbedingt zu empfehlen!
Our trip to Tuscany and stay at La Cassetta del telegrafo was perfect. Valeria was an amazing hostess and we appreciate all she did to make us feel welcome at the Losi family vineyards. We will always look back on our stay with fond memories and a desire to return someday.
About the Host, Valeria
I'm an open minded Italian girl, that has lived for almost an year during the university studies in Germany sharing flat with people from all over the world.
My family produces fine wines in the historical region of Chianti and I'm now the international sales responsible. This work bring me often abroad.
However during summer and spring, I love to organize visit of the wine cellar and tastings. I'm so proud of the work my family has made in the past, that when I speak about wine people say to me that they can feel and appreciate in our products our region, soil and traditional wine making.
My two passions: travel and wine tastings!
My Family produce wine since the 1870 and we propose today refined Chianti Classico. The winery of my Family is open for a wine tasting for all the airbnb guests!Castelnuovo Berardenga 53109
