Review 5538: Agriturismo Cretaiole, Il Granaio


Review by KimH from MN

apartments on a farm near Pienza, Tuscany South


March 2013, 9 nights


My family and I stayed at Cretaiole Agriturismo just outside of Pienza for just over a week this March. We found it through a general Google search about traveling in Italy with children (we have a seven-year-old). We had considered arranging a family-friendly group tour of Italy, but are so happy we opted for Cretaiole instead. It was a perfect place from which to explore Tuscany (Florence, Siena, Montepulciano, Bagno Vignoni, Montichiello, etc.) and to relax in the beautiful countryside. The accommodations were beautiful and the Moricciani family (Isabella, Carlo, and Luciano) made our visit easy and comfortable. They helped us plan our day trips, provided fun (and free!) activities at the farmhouse, and fed us an amazing dinner after teaching us how to make pici. Carlotta, a new member of the staff, was especially helpful and welcoming. And our son loved it; he could play outside with the cats or other children staying at Cretaiole. It was a perfect solution for us!
