Review 2514: Owner, Casina di Rosa


Review by Mary from CO

1bed/1bath house in Civitella Marittima, Tuscany West


April 22 - 29, 2006, One week


This house was in a small village and in a convenient location. We liked the house and the village very much.

Nearby Amenities

We could walk all over this small village for most things we needed.

The House/Apartment

This house was in excellent shape in a quiet residential area. It had a kitchen with a fireplace, one bedroom, a living room, a bathroom and a laundry room. The entire town was historical.


There was a pleasant sitting area outside the front door. It was private but just off the street, which was charming and we enjoyed the contact with the neighbors. No pool.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The house was clean and the furnishings in good shape and complete.


Everything was comfortable and fine.


The kitchen was complete and we especially enjoyed cooking and eating with a fire in the fireplace.

Problems or Bonuses

The fireplace in the kitchen was a nice surprise.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The owners were very friendly and made sure we enjoyed their house and their village.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

We came here because good friends had recommended it to us and we would be delighted to recommend it to anyone. It was the total experience in this small village that made this visit so special. The accommodation was fine but the experience of spending a week in a small Italian hill town with no tourists was quite extraordinary.

Things to do in this area

The local restaurant was excellent and we were surprised that you need reservations in the middle of the week in this quiet town during the off season. We made day trips all over "wild" Tuscany and had some great hiking as well as visits to several nearby Tuscan towns.
