HOUSE - the house is 3 floors, with a big fireplace, a balcony, a shower, a bath and a jacuzzi in the garden. Strong WiFi connection. Excellent views on both sides
It's also close to parking (convenient!) and to the road that you may follow into the fields, to walk the dogs (if you have any). VILLAGE -Small. The village has the fruit shop, the cheese/pasta/bread shop, and 2 fantastic restaurants (Merlo, Nilo) where you can dine like a king (for €60-80, with a bottle of great wine, and it's a bill for two).
We rent all year round our three- level house (we rent all floors not just a part of the house) built on the remains of a 16th Century tower is on a charming, quiet street just five minutes away from the central square, Piazza Garibaldi, with markets, shops, banks, post, and two bars and restaurants.
This beautiful building has been restored with creativity and love with much attention to details and true to its architectural style with natural stone and refined materials that give it a very unique atmosphere and made it onto a very interesting architectural state.
The third floor house has a private terrace offering a breath-taking view on the valley and the town of Città della Pieve with its charming stones that turn gold at sunset.
At the ground-floor there is a leaving room area with a spacious table, a kitchenette, some comfortable couches well-functioning fireplace and one bathroom.
The three steps lead onto the private terrace where you can start your day having breakfast while reading a book, or later in the day relax ,drinking a cocktail and at night… looking at the beautiful sky full of stars.
From the terrace you can reach a very unique jet tub room that was created from the original tuff cave.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with double bed and a bathroom with a bathtub.
On the second floor there is a beautiful studio apartment showered with beautiful natural light and sunshine all day long with double bed, a bathroom with shower a small cosy living room and a tiny balcony overlooking the Cetonas’ Mountain and the Tuscan countryside.

Preferiremmo non si fumasse in casa, per questo c'è un bellissimo e comodo terrazzo. Il giorno della partenza, la casa va lasciata pulita come la si è trovata all'arrivo, senza spazzatura nei bidoni e con il piano di cucina pulito.
Sono richiesti 40 EUR per pulizie da pagarsi alla consegna delle chiavi. La casa, per via delle scale interne, è sconsigliata a bambini sotto i 5 anni e a persone con problemi di mobilità.
I’m expecting guests to have the house and all is inside in care, switching off all the lights when not inside.
Please don’t leave dirty dishes and garbage.
If you can’t avoid smoking, please do it in the balcony only.
Guests are also asked kindly to avoid noise at night.
On the day of departure the house has to be left in the same clean and tidy condition that the guest has found it on arrival, otherwise a charge of 50 euro will be applied.
We require 40 E. for cleanings to be paid once you arrive. On demand a service of cleaning expences is available and has a cost of 15 euro per hour.
Inside the house a set of recycling bins is available (one for paper products and one for plastic glass tin and aluminium cans)
This was the most unusual place we have ever stayed, invoking the atmosphere of a medieval castle, and yet with wonderful furnishings and comforts-- good warm bed, comfortable deep tub with plenty of hot water, fireplace to sit before and read a Floretine historical novel on a cold and rainy night. The Tuscan countryside was beautiful; we had a car and visited Siena as well as some of the small villages. Cetona itself was lovely, and had 2 restaurants, both with delicious meals. Francesco was very helpful, very responsive to our questions and needs. We spent 5 days and had a great time.
Staying in Cetona at Alessandra & Francesco's beautiful tower house was a highlight of our time in Italy. Francesco's enthusiasm and willingness to introduce us to many aspects of local hospitality gave us a true taste of Tuscan life and culture.
The decor and detailing of the tower house is beautiful and the views of the countryside, absolutely stunning.
We would highly recommend staying here and we'd do so again without hesitation.
Thank you again for making our stay in Cetona so memorable.
Nous avons passe une semaine de reve dans cette belle maison et la campagne autour. Notre bebe faisant encore beacoup de siestes, ns avons pu profite pas mal des baignoires, jacuzzi, cheminee, bref tres romantique ! Francesco, le mari d'Alessandra etait toujour present mais discret pour nous aider et conseiller les bons endroits pour gouter aux bons produits de Toscane ! Une semaine feerique et nous esperons revenir !! Merci !
The house was absolutely amazing. Perfect location in a quiet charming town. Perfect spot for a relaxing weekend with amazing views. Francesco was one of the kindest people I've ever met and had perfect recommendations for anything we asked for. Highly recommend this place!
Francesco e la sua torre sono entrambe, a loro modo, straordinari. Purtroppo non abbiamo avuto modo di incontrare Alessandra, che era fuori città.
La casa corrisponde perfettamente alle foto riportate sul sito, che però non riescono a carpire l'atmosfera accogliente che il luogo comunica fin dal primo istante.
Cetona è un borgo da favola, piccolo ma con tutti i servizi necessari, e tutti di ottima qualità, raggiungibili a piedi dalla torre.
La gentilezza e la disponibilità di Francesco hanno reso il nostro soggiorno ancora più piacevole di quanto preventivato.
Lo consigliamo assolutamente!
If you want the ultimate stay in Tuscany, look not further than this absolute gem in Cetona! Alessandra gave amazing directions to the place (don't follow your GPS!) that got us there with ease. Upon arrival, Francesco met us, showed us around the apartment and then went above and beyond by walking around the town piazza with us and even introduced us to many of the local shop owners. It was wonderful! You must make multiple visits to Cantina La Frasca as it was a highlight for us. Even the charming photos do not do this place justice. It is beautiful, clean, well-equipped and just as charming as you'd imagine. Simply put, it was a magical week in Cetona. I am so glad we decided to make this our home base and I will recommend this spot to anyone heading to Tuscany! Thank you again, Francesco and Alessandra for opening up your beautiful home to us! Salut!
Alessandra and Francesco's beautiful house could not have been more perfect. Francesco helped us up the little hill with our bags, suggested places to visit and even helped make a reservation in the local restaurant. Cetona is so beautiful and visiting off peak with no other tourists around was the icing on the cake. Thanks for listing your house, everything was perfect!
I hope we can come back soon and meet you Alessandra. Grazie Mille! Nicci
