A place to go back every year !

5 of 5
The house is perfectly located in the heart or Tuscany, in a very calm spot overlooking a beautiful view. The spacious bedrooms are distant from each other and very comfortable for 5 couples . (One couple didnt like the mattress and Mariacristina had it changed immediately). The Bathrooms are spacious elegant and modern. The kitchen is well equiped and we enjoyed some cooking and grilling outside. We chosed this place from the pictures and were surprised to find reality better. Our group of 10 people enjoyed the space and choice of places in and around the house. Nothing negative to say, we had a great time and will come back. thank you Mariacristina.

We had a fantastic stay at Casa Cavalli this spring with our two children. We stayed for 4 weeks and never ran out of things to see and do. We loved the beautiful setting of Casa Cavalli and the location- just a short drive to several attractions and the sea. Some days we found it hard to leave the estate it is so lovely! Luca is a wonderful host and really went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The apartment was very comfortable for our family of 4 and we definitely intend to return!
