We stayed here with our daughter, her husband and our three granddaughters. It was perfect for us. Keith and Tania had a bottle of sparkling wine and some food items to get us started on the week, because they knew we had traveled a long distance that day. The location was perfect for day trips to Orvieto, Arezzo, Perugia, Pienza and Montepulciano. The girls loved the pool and the two dogs, Murphy and Stella. We will all have fond memories of Casa bel Posto.
“Fabulous stay, perfect hosts... a beautiful place in the country”
Having just settled down as a "family" together in Santa Fe... our true beginning together started at Casa bel Posto. Tania and Keith were nothing short of amazing as they welcomed the 4 of us to the property , greeting us with Prosecco getting to know each other a bit before inviting us to a local Dried Pasta Festival that evening. We were blessed to meet their friends and felt really taken in by the community, even in the medieval village of Cortona. The villa itself was perfect for our family (each kid got their own room) spacious, beautifully decorated; we especially loved the pasta & fresh herbs & vegetables left for us ( a welcomed dinner since we had not shopped since Florence). The shutters in the bedrooms blocked out all sunlight (just how we like it) so, if sleep is on your menu you will have no problem (beds are comfy, too). The kitchen is fully equipped; we cooked a few times. The pool and Murphy (wonderful dog) were the highlights for the kids. The pool is huge! We loved the fire pit, hammock, private yard. We have to mention what Keith & Tania did to make our wedding a success.. Tania decorated the pergola in the yard with fresh flowers, hanging lights, lanterns, and set the most gorgeous dinner table with candles. Keith used a sword to open the bottle to celebrate our wedding reception dinner he prepared for us, steak, pasta salad, antipasto, Tuscan beans, salad. It was divine! We were blessed Keith, Tania, Lorenzo & Bronwyn could be with us...what great memories! :) Tania, another thank you to your amazing gift of photography and (Keith) hauling us all over the village of Cortona, during the wedding, and all over the countryside to get the amazing shots that you took for our wedding day. Both of you were integral parts to this fairy tale wedding day that we will never forget; and more importantly, two great friends. There's not enough room here to say all that we appreciate about you; but, we cannot wait to be back to stay! We 3 Cortona!
“Wonderful Tuscan Experience!”
Never has a week gone by so fast! Keith & Tania welcomed us with a chilled bottle of Prosecco which we enjoyed sitting in the shade of the trees while they told us about the property and what to do and where to go in the surrounding area around Cortona. Casa Bel Posto was everything we had expected and more. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage and the beds extremely comfortable. We slept very well - the only sound that of an occasional owl! Although we ate out most nights, the kitchen was well supplied. Coming from chilly England, it was lovely to enjoy the warm sunshine sitting beside the pool. The comfortable sofas in the pergola offered a lovely shady place to escape the sun. The farmhouse is surrounded by fields of sunflowers and I can only imagine how wonderful it must be when they are all in bloom. Murphy, the Labrador, quickly became our newest best friend! Cortona is a delightful old hilltop medieval town. Parking was easy and we took the escalator up to the centre of the old town. We had three memorable meals in Cortona, at La Bucaccia, Trattoria Toscana and Osteria del Teatro. Thank you Keith & Tania for recommending them to us. Not to be missed - Keith's informative talk about olive oil production and a cooking class with alessandra. Very many thanks to both Keith & Tania for giving us such a wonderful relaxing holiday at your beautiful Casa Bel Posto - we hope to be back before too long!
“Wonderful Tuscan Experience”
What a charming place to spend two weeks in Tuscany. A great base for day trips to the hill towns. Great restaurants, including our favorites Trattoria Toscana and Bastian al Contrario. Keith and Tania were extremely helpful in offering helpful hints and advice and in arranging special events, such as wine tasting and cooking classes. All in all, a delighful experience.
“Relaxing Retrieat in Great Location”
We were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home in Tuscany by the owners and their dog! This rental is a comfortable size for a family or for friends sharing a vacation space. The old hill city of Cortona is clearly visible on the hill nearby, so you have the proximity to sightseeing with the convenience of the valley location for affordable grocery shopping and easy highway access to drive to other sights in the region.
“The quintessential tuscan farmhouse vacation”
Our stay at Casa Bel Posto was the highlight of our month long trip to Europe. The property was situated close to Cortona in the midst of the local farms at the end of a stately umbrella pine lined driveway. It was a relaxing, beautiful place with a great pool, good garden with fresh veggies and herbs for our use, and a wonderful yellow lab, Murphy, for our kids to play with. Our hosts Tania and Keith greeted us with a glass of nice white wine which we reciprocated with some of our recently purchased red wine. Nothing like good wine to establish a friendly rapport! Keith and Tania could not do enough for us. In addition to being very helpful with information, Tania brought us on the best wine tasting tour we have ever experienced. Tania arranges these and other tours and judging from ours, we are sure the others would be fantastic also. The accommodation was very comfortable with the best beds we had in Europe. They also provided a stocked, at cost, wine rack with their recommended favourites and from our experience they were very good choices. The cost of the accommodation was very reasonable compared to the other places we stayed but in terms of quality and experience, it was our favourite and we plan on returning asap. Our stay was most rewarding and we left feeling that we had just made two new friends.
“Wonderful Tuscany Family Vacation!”
We came here with our two daughters (8 and 7) and my in-laws. We live in Naples and met here to tour Tuscany. It is the perfect spot! Very tranquil setting, plenty of space for the six of us. Ideal location to tour the many Tuscany cities. We did day trips each day and it was wonderful to come home and jump in the large pool! We cooked on the grill and made camp fires at night and roasted s'mores! It was a great place to spend our holiday!
Casa bel Posto was just what we needed after doing a 9 day Rick Steeves tour. We were welcomed late in the day by Tania and Keith with a basket full of food and a fully stocked wine rack. Since we arrived late this was very much appreciated. There was enough to throw together a great pasta dish and enjoy some wine. The house had everything you needed. The pool was great as was Murphy the dog. We loved to sit under the pergola in the mornings. The location was great for us. You could easily do lots of day trips from here.It was really convenient having Tania & Keith upstairs to help with any questions or problems. We really loved our stay here and would happily return.
“Best Italian Vacation”
Our second year at Casa bel Posto and even better than our first. Keith, Tania and their yellow lab Murphy make you feel right at home. The apartment is every bit as good as advertised, and the location is perfect. We hope to be able to stay there many more times in the future.
“Once in a lifetime perfect trip”
My family and came to Tuscany for my niece's wedding and seeing Italy. Tania and Keith were the perfect hosts and the accomodations wonderful for our family. From the welcome Prosecco and pasta until we departed, we felt at home. Beautiful location off the beaten path. Take allesandra's cooking class if you get the chance. It was wonderful.
