                                                                                                      My husband and I have just returned from our second stay at this lovely, enchanting villa. After our initial visit in 2015 we knew we had to come back and share this gem with our 3 adult children and soon to be daughter-in-law. Le Caggiole was just as we remembered and Francesca's warm welcome equally as inviting. In Francesca we have found a life long friend and Le Caggiole has become my "happy place"! One could arrive at the villa and never leave to go sightseeing as the view from the terrace is spectacular. The villa itself is as lovely as the photos on the website, but I think the whole experience is what makes this place so special. It's Francesca and her husband Jim's attention to detail that stands out from the moment you arrive. The grounds, pool, and villa are lovingly cared for and spotless. The flowers and herb pots in full bloom. While the figs and plums were not in season yet, an added bonus this time were the ripe apricots which we devoured daily. Francesca always respecting her guests privacy will offer her time and advice freely if asked. She is instrumental in helping to arrange meals that can be prepared onsite by 2 local and very talented ladies. Really... you must do this at least once! Thanks Beatrice & Fiorenza :) The layout of the villa is excellent and allowed for all of us to have our own private living spaces, as well as the shared communal areas. The beds are comfortable, the water pressure in the showers excellent, the kitchen well appointed, and the decor tasteful. It's difficult to choose where to spend your your time because it's all so inviting. Trust me when I say Francesca has thought of everything:) Also, do purchase Francesca's wine and olive oil...it's all delicious! Montepulciano is only 5 minutes away and the location is perfect to use as a home base for exploring neighbouring towns like Cortona, Montalcino, Pienza, Orvieto etc. I could write forever about how perfect this villa is but I hope you will find out for yourselves. Let Le Caggiole become your "happy place!" It really is genuinely special and we will return again!!

The views are stunning and the surrounding area has so much character with endless hilltop towns to discover and explore. We had a brilliant time and would recommend it to anybody looking for a place to unwind. Loredana was very helpful before we arrived and during our stay, and we thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon chatting to her by the pool whilst we were there. Thank you Loredana and we hope to see you again soon.
