Review 2763: Agriturismo Cretaiole, Apartment


Review by AnnemarieC from CA

apartments on a farm near Pienza, Tuscany South


April 2007, 9 nights


What a wonderful and magical time my husband and I had at Cretaiole. We are already planning and dreaming about our next visit! Isabella and her family are such warm, generous, and gracious hosts. Everything about our trip was perfect. I have been telling all my family and friends about Cretaiole, Pienza and all of the beautiful Val d'Orcia and surrounding area. We enjoyed everything!

Each day had special treats and surprises: Luciano and Laura bringing us the Vin Santo, eggs, and Easter bread on the Saturday before Easter; Isabella's amazing tour of the Etruscan ruins on the family property; the fresh vegetables each night from the garden; the olive oil "class" and tasting with Isabella's husband Carlo; the monastery dinner; the pici pasta class and wonderful dinner with other guests and the owner's family; Carlo's father Luciano sharing grappa with us; Luciano's tour of San Gregorio and the sampling of wines and prosciutto made on the premises ... all of the nice people that we met, and I could keep going on and on about how wonderful everything was and all of the things that we enjoyed.

This was one of the most amazing vacations that my husband Paul and I have enjoyed, by far exceeding all our expectations and we are looking forward to returning soon!
