Rest and Relaxation
What a fantastic place. We spent a week at the Casetta at the end of June in glorious 30plus degree sunshine. It’s just the right size for a comfortable stay for a couple or family with a small child. Not that you want to do too much of it on holiday but there’s all the ‘mod cons’ for cooking, washing etc. The Casetta is set in a beautiful, well maintained garden within the grove and the views are just as spectacular as the website photos look. Although there are other properties in the vicinity they’re far enough away and hidden by the groves that you have complete privacy.
The local supermarket and bakery should provide most if not all your basic needs for food etc. but we did enjoy popping over to Castel Del Piano to do shopping there too. Find the general store which sells white and red wine from the vat for 1 Euro 30 a litre! It’s got a really good deli counter too.
A straightforward 2 ½ hour drive from Pisa airport with no problem finding our way thanks to Peri’s directions. We also managed day trips taking in Sienna, the top of Monte Amiata, Montalcino, and San Gimignano during the week without feeling we were doing too much although some of the nearer hilltop villages are just as interesting & beautiful to see. If you intend to visit during the summer months make sure you get a car with air con. We found it a godsend. We also set off on our day trips fairly early so that we could still spend time relaxing in & around the Casetta watching the wildlife going about its business before going out in the evening.
The local restaurants as well as others in the nearby villages were all very good. We particularly enjoyed Sergio’s in Castel Del Piano. Of course, we barbequed as well!
Every night was finished off with a bottle of wine or two sitting outside the Casetta enjoying the peace and tranquillity gazing at night sky totally unpolluted by any street lighting etc. This is just a great place to relax. Our only regret now was booking for just one week. A return visit is a must!!
On a personal note, many thanks to Katja for making us feel so welcome and helping us with information and tips.
charming, warm and wonderful
I don't think we could have found a better place to stay. A lovely cottage in a wonderful town. Peri and David are great hosts who are warm and welcoming. We used Seggiano as a base from which to explore many parts of Italy and for those who wish to "get away from it all" and just hang out, this is the perfect place.
Fabulous place to stay, well equipped kitchen, stunning views and location, helpful and kind hosts.
Overall a brilliant holiday cottage in a fabulous unspoilt location in Toscana. We had not visited this part of Italy before and Peri our kind host gave us lots of valuable information both in advance and while we were at the cottage to enable us to enjoy our stay to the full. The surrounding countryside is amazingly beautiful and has lovely walks from the cottage, and further afield, as well as a wealth of historical churches and lovely hill towns. The fantastic Daniel Spoerri sculpture garden is very close and is exceptional, as is its restaurant! In fact amazing locally produced foods, pecorino, fresh pasta and other local delicacies are readily available just a short walk through the olive grove which surrounds the cottage. We had a wonderful relaxing time in Seggiano.
Beautiful part of Tuscany
This area of Tuscany is well worth a visit - pretty villages, wonderful scenery, easy access to Siena (if you need a city fix) and all the charm and loveliness that you would expect from this part of Italy. The house is perfect - small but comfortable with a decent bed and a good shower - and if anything the pictures don't do justice to the garden area which is full of bees and birds (and lightening bugs at night) and of course the handsome olive trees. We had a great time visiting local villages including Seggiano of course (which has a great restaurant right at the top of the village between the two bell towers). Only downside was the noise from the neighbours dogs (much more intrusive than the 'normal' sounds one might expect from a rural location) which disturbed us for the first 3 of our 6 nights and which made for unease during the first half of our short holiday. Having selected this property primarily hoping for those peaceful early mornings and silent evenings one can find in rural Italy, this was a shame, and it feels right to highlight this for others. The owners are aware of it however and are in the process of trying to resolve this (although apparently it does not bother most guests). One other tip, if you are going to arrive later in the evening make sure you pick up basic provisions on route...there wont be a welcome pack (bread, cheese or even just some water as is typical with most holiday rentals) to get you through night one ...hardly a holiday wrecker but still good to know in advance. We would certainly recommend this part of Tuscany which provided a varied, interesting and on the whole relaxing week...although you would probably need more than one week to do it justice (there is some driving to do to reach places further afield).
Thank you for your thoughtful review and suggestions.
So glad that you found the cottage lovely, the garden and of course our venerable olive grove. Recently several guests have said that the photos don’t do justice to the beauty of the place.
We are so sorry that you experienced a downside with the neighbouring dogs, which really don’t bother most people. I don’t know what happened on that night but it must have been unusually noisy, probably due to visiting wildlife, which can cause indignant uproar in the local dog community. We took action immediately and it’s been totally quiet since then. Furthermore we don’t anticipate any further disturbance in the future, as we do take the issue very seriously and more than anything want guests to feel renewed when they come to stay.
We wanted your stay to be really enjoyable and hope that the financial reimbursement and the fact that the remainder of your stay was peaceful was some recompense. At least you left saying that a week was too short a stay.
We have noted that you would have liked some water and a welcome pack. We do provide flowers and a complimentary bottle of our extra virgin olive oil, plus larder essentials like teas and coffee. The tap water (tested by our son in law, an analytical chemist) is good drinking water, but we take note of your helpful suggestion.
We will have to try Emiliano’s restaurant at the top of Seggiano.
Thank you for the review and do hope that you will venture here again one day.
Idyllic Location in the Heart of Tuscany
This is the second time that we have stayed here.
The property is set in the most stunning position in the heart of Tuscany. The owners are charming and very helpful. The accommodation is immaculate. We couldn't ask for anything better. We will return.
I'm glad that you liked the casetta enough to come again for what will be your third visit to us. You came at a great moment, spring just verging on summer, when it's lovely and hot whilst all the plants are still lush and in flower. We look forward to seeing you again, enjoying the evening sunset view with a bottle of prosecco. Many thanks.
Tranquility, Beauty and Plenty to do Nearby
We visited in August to escape the heat of Greece and could not have been more delighted. The house itself was perfect for our needs. It was charming and fully appointed with everything one might need in the kitchen or otherwise. The view from the guesthouse was really unbelievable as it looked out over a tiny valley and right to the hill top medieval town of Seggiano. There is plenty to do nearby including walks on Amiata the largest dormant Volcano in Italy which hosts a ski resort which in the summer is used by hikers. Bagno Vignoni is only a 25 minute drive away where you can experience the hot springs and dine by the ancient hot spring pool used by popes and pilgrims. The owners were very helpful, gracious and real. They answered all of our questions and helped us to find new things to do. They were always reachable but not over your shoulder. The information and maps left in the cabin were also especially helpful and David even showed us a couple of towns south of us that were well worth the drive! In all we would highly recommend this beautiful slice of Tuscany. One didn't get the sense of a packed tourist destination but rather one gets a real Tuscan feel. There are also convenient grocery stores nearby which was useful as we cooked at home many nights and picnicked most afternoons. Great Value for Money too!
We can see you are an American with a true love of Europe. Thanks for the kind observations about your hosts - we want our guests to be relaxed and feel quite at home in the space and very glad you felt that. Good luck with your projects and come again!
