“Andy's review of Accommodation Cortona Tuscany - Casa Chiana”
Very good, as advertised. The location and the view. Close to town and a great Tuscan home.
“Pandora's review of Casa Chiana”
Quite lovely. A peaceful, bucolic, ancient farmhouse that provides a welcoming atmosphere and serene retreat. The charm and age of the farmhouse. I feel we were part of the community and exported back to a time of a slower way of life, yet we had all the amenities of today. The church across the street, the village of Cortona, and the ability to see and visit many old villages in the area by car.
“John Suzanne's review of Calcinaio”
The view, the pool and yard. We spent most afternoons relaxing in the pool. It is small but with the jets it was very very nice!! The kitchen was very well supplied. We were able to have several dinners sitting out by the pool enjoying the view. Having a washing machine was very helpful and things dried very quickly in the heat. There was a lot of road noise. It was a challenge to get in and out of the driveway. It was very hot the week we were there and we found the house didn't have very good air circulation on the bedroom floor, so the bedrooms were hot. There were air conditioners in the bedrooms but one of them didn't work very well and a breeze would have been nice. It would have been nice to have a few more towels - maybe even pool towels. We love Cortona and the surrounding area. The four of us had rented another villa in 2004 in Cortona so it was nice to be back again. We took a few day trips, one by car to Montepulciano, Pienza and San Quirico d' Orcia, and one day we took the train into Firenze. The location was really good as a base.
“Paul's review of Calcinaio”
The yard and pool area was great and the views of the countryside were wonderful. Small living room. Cortona was excellent and we were close enough to drive to all the surrounding hill towns. Even Assisi was pretty close.
“Ellen's review of Calcinaio”
Beautiful garden, with dome-level view of Santa Maria de Calcinaio almost within spitting distance! Hosts were charming and helpful. Access. Both driveway exits were perilous. Proximity to Cortona, which is a delightful place.
“Lynn's review of Calcinaio”
Location. Entrance to the lane. Countryside and towns.
“Joan's review of Calcinaio”
Would rent it again. The ladies we dealt with were so gracious! Location and people we dealt with. Entrance and exit. Everything!
“Gay's review of Calcinaio”
We would come again!!! The location is wonderful - we loved Cortona and also loved being just outside city in a more secluded place. The house is charming and the view of the church is spectacular. A lot of road noise. It was a great home base to visit the rest of Tuscany.
“Elizabeth's review of Calcinaio”
The first thing we told the owners when they came for our final visit was that the pictures on the web site do not do the property justice. We were all very pleasantly surprised by the charm and comfort. It's difficult to pick out just one thing: the yard area was private; quaint; the view was breathtaking; the accommodations were awesome! The road above and below the villa was quite busy with traffic - a bit noisy while lounging in the garden. Also, presented a challenge to navigate on foot - but made it quite easy to catch a lift from the locals to the top of the hill to Cortona. The olive trees and grape vines, the lake visible in the distance, the proximity to the train station, catching the bus in the morning with the local school children, the serenity of Cortona, especially after the chaos of Rome!
“Michael's review of Calcinaio”
The location and the overall quality of the house and contents. The owners were delightful and attentive, helping us secure a dentist appointment when one of us broke a tooth. One member was especially helpful in exchanging text messages with me to make sure we were getting on okay and to help me with my Italian. As a matter of personal taste, I would rather the owners increase the rent than have add-on charges for usage of utilities, firewood and the like. It's not a big thing. In fact, we probably benefitted from paying for the electricity based on usage because there were only two of us, and we were away from the house a lot. I would just prefer to pay the rent and forget about the rest The turn onto the road up to Cortona.
