Wonderful farmhouse - photos do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the farmhouse for 1 night in the end of May, 2017.

My only regret: we did not stay longer!

When we arrived at check-in, it was later in the evening (about 7pm), so Tania was no longer on site. I called the number on the office door and she was there within 10 minutes to check us in. Easy! She thoroughly explained how things in the apartment worked, although we did not take advantage of many of the amenities since our stay was so short.

The apartment we rented was beyond lovely! I, of course, saw photos of it on VRBO when we rented it, but I must say, the photos do not do it justice! The apartment we rented was so charming - it surpassed expectations, by far! It felt so much like home the moment we walked in. The apartment was larger than I was expecting. The bed was comfortable, and the water was hot for our morning showers (great water pressure, too)!

In the morning, Tania prepared a large breakfast for us (and the other guests). It was delicious! She was such a gracious host; truly a very lovely person!

The farmhouse itself is beautiful. There's a wonderful view of the vineyards and surrounding countryside. They produce their own red wine on site, so I bought a bottle to drink with my husband, as well as a bottle to take home to my family in the states to share. How very neat to be able to enjoy a bottle of wine made right there at the vineyard we stayed at! (It was delicious, if you're wondering!) There is also a path leading up to Montalcino from the farmhouse, which only takes about 5 minutes to walk.

As for communication, Marcella and Tania do not speak great english, and I don't speak any Italian, but their english was enough to book the stay and also to communicate during check-in and check-out. I did email Marcella prior to our visit to ask her to make dinner reservations for us at a highly recommended restaurant in Montalcino, which she kindly did :) I thought that was very nice of her!

Montalcino is an adorable town! If you're looking for a good place to stay between Florence and Rome, I highly recommend Montalcino... and if you're staying in Montalcino, I REALLY HIGHLY recommend staying at this farmhouse!

I hope to someday return to the area, and if I do, I will be spending much more time here! Some of the other guests were staying for two weeks! I am jealous :)

A very large thank you to Marcella, Tania, and the staff of the farmhouse for a most lovely stay!

Paradise in Montalcino, La Casella

  • 5 of 5

Perfection in Tuscany. Montalcino is the perfect city, La Casella is the perfect farmhouse. Located in a vinyard, 5 minute walk to town via footpath. All apartments are perfectly suited for extended stay. Cooking classes available and wine tasting at family winery, Fattoi. The setting is magical. Marcella, her sister, and mother, tend to your every need. Easy access to train and bus. Great dining options in Montalcino. Great cultural events in Montalcino... Such as Wine and Jazz at the Fort. The brst of both worlds, farmhouse location... But only a short walk to town. Unbeatable!

  • 5 of 5

"Pick this one! We stayed at "La Casella" for a few days in October. We arrived late on the first night after dark and were warmly welcomed. Having not seen the surrounding property on our arrival you can imagine our surprise and delight when we woke the following morning and gazed out onto the vineyard and rolling Tuscan hills, all under glorious blue skies. It truly was spectacular and never failed to amaze us each morning. The apartment was well appointed, clean and comfortable and we lacked for nothing during our stay. Iolanda "mama" is on site most of the time - there if you need her but not in any way intrusive. She does not speak any English but it is amazing what you can achieve with a little pointing and gesturing and picking up the occasional word in Italian. She kindly brought me to town to fetch a mechanic after our rental car battery ran out of juice. Breakfast is modest fare brought by Iolanda the previous evening. The property is only a minute or so drive from the center of Montalcino which is not only a great location in its own right, but is an excellent location to base your tour of the surrounding countryside and hilltowns. We would definitely stay here again."

  • 5 of 5

"Apartment was clean and well kept. Surrounding views are really beautyfull with real wine and olive yards at the door. Our hostess grandmother Iolanda took very good care off us answering&explaining patiently all our questions in italian and rest with hands. Continental breakfast was a basket including tiny coffee packets for a espresso machine (tasted very good), milk, cookies, jam etc. We used the coffee & milk but bought youghurt, mussli, fresh bread and cheese from Coop.

Allmost everything was just perfect, perhaps the poor sound isolation between apartments was a little bit annoying thing. You could hear normal speach and foot steps from your neighbour."

  • 5 of 5

"We had a wonderful holiday in Tuscany, and we really liked "La Casella". It was clean, the owners were friendly and the location was excellent. We had difficulties to find the place at first, because it could not be found on our navigator - and there's another place called "Casella" nearby. But once we found it, we were happy with what we saw. Everything was perfect, and we really enjoyed our stay! We would recommend this place to anyone who likes to experience the Tuscan countryside."

(Text automatically translated) Finding us is easy, we are on the main road that connects Siena and Montalcino. At 500 meters from the village, on your right is a red mailbox American with the header that indicates access to the Company.

(Text automatically translated) Strategic location that will allow you to reach the village on foot also has a private yard where you can leave your car useful for making trips to nearby areas such as the Abbey of S. Antimo, the town of Pienza, the Rock of Tentennano with the village of S. Quirico, Abbey of Montoliveto and more. From a cultural tourist routes paths more 'closely related to the environment such as the wineries of Brunello, the various Wine and why not also a nice Stroll in the heart of the vineyards.
