Review 5556: Agriturismo Cretaiole, Apartment


Review by jan from US

apartments on a farm near Pienza, Tuscany South


May 1, 1 week


We just spent the first week in May at "Cretaoile" an agritourismo about 4k from Pienza, Italy and I can't recall ever having a more delightful trip in 25 years. It was everything you could hope for - charming, friendly and very comfortable. We were even given cell phones to communicate with the owners if any questions came up while on our daily wanderings.

There are six apartments that have been converted from an old farmhouse, all with different accommodations and fully outfitted with nice linens, stocked kitchens, modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. The attention to detail is incredible! Each suite has two notebooks - one for excursions and one for restaurants complete with GPS coordinates. This saved us many times! The setting of Cretaoile is beautiful and peaceful, making you just want to relax and stay home.

Upon registration you are given a weekly calendar with Isabella's suggested excursions, which is enough to keep you busy all week. Some of our favorites were the Sant' Anna Monastery dinner, two great wine tastings and the "La Foce Gardens".

An exceptional week with exceptional hosts and Pienza is the best!
