Vacation rentals in Italy (villas, farms, estates, agriturismo, apartments)
Review 4403: Owner, Casina di Rosa
1bed/1bath house in Civitella Marittima, Tuscany West
Mid September 2009, 2 weeks
Location was in the village, very central, in a very nice environment. The medieval city is on the top of a hill and is literally unspoiled by tourists. The house itself is squeezed onto the hill top and the whole village is walkable in 15 minutes.
Yes, walking is definitely the choice as the streets are very small and narrow. It's a charming little village. There's a grocery store and a weekly market within the city (two minutes walk). There's also a money machine and a top restaurant within the village. A nice freshly made pasta shop is also a nice alternative if you want to cook yourself.
It was "historical" as part of the medieval city with the same look and feel. It was comfortable and quiet. There's only one rental in the building although the rest of the building is used for garage and storage. It is a little house in the village.
There's a pathway to the street, which is private and where you can sit and enjoy the morning sun. I wouldn't describe this as a garden but still, it makes it possible to eat outside and enjoy the sight.
Yes, everything was in order, clean and comfortable.
Yes, fresh and renewed every week. There was one bathroom, which was also very clean and new.
I cooked most of the two weeks being there and it was perfect.
Problems or Bonuses
Owners are young and modern, and they are very resourceful. We had the feeling we were "in good hands".
Agency and Representatives (and price)
We booked directly with the owners who were both fluent in English.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
Yes and I even went a bit further to write to the council of that village for suggestion to even make it better. It was a perfect little place.
Things to do in this area
The owners provided us an extensive guide of things to do in the region and practical information. If you like walking, organic wine and rough off-the-tourist track areas, this is absolutely fine. We really enjoyed it.
