Dear all,

We are from Denmark and we have stayed in 2008 and 2009 + will again 2014. The people are fantastic and so kind, the food is excellent, the rooms are small but good, the appartments are nice and like the most other agriturismo and we were very satisfied. The pool is nice and this place is very close to Montepulciano, so we found it very well placed.

I must say that I dont understand the bad reviews at all. Yes, there is a road close by and there is some antiques near by, but we liked it JUST as it is!!! For us, it is a peaceful place in nice and beautiful atmosphere with the BEST foods. We CANNOT wait to go back. So... people listen...I know people have different expectations, but sometimes give it a short. There are very critical people out there, and this place deserves a good grade, because for us it was simply fantastic.

We stayed there both as a couple and as family :-)

And finally....the price is SO low compared to what you get! We give it our best recommandations.

Room tip: Go to Montepulciano to taste the wine. It is so close to this place. I will enclose photos after our next holiday

The family at Casalprato could not be nicer. They welcomed my husband and me at 8pm with smiles and a bottle of wine. Niella, the wife/owner, hustled to put clean sheets on our bed and leave us with a stack of clean towels. Although we speak Italian, they had their daughter on hand who spoke English, in case we had any questions she and her husband couldn't answer.

The room was nice, and seemed clean, except for some stray hairs on the bedspread. When we woke up in the morning and took a walk around the farm, we were dismayed to see a lot of junk and mess everywhere (very similar to what CFBtripper mentioned in his review). There was also a large parrot in a pretty messy cage right in the kitchen near food prep and eating areas which made me squeamish about my breakfast in the morning. Also, flies everywhere.

But the folks who ran the place were incredibly, outstandingly nice.

A great spot to explore Montepulciano, Pienza.

Would we go there again? Maybe... but we have a pretty low tolerance for mess and flies, so maybe not. One of those places I think you have to see for yourself and decide.

The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. All our needs were taken care of, including having an itinerary prepared for us with recommendations on where to go without our even asking. The highlight of our time in Tuscany was being welcomed like family and the absolutely amazing food that we shared together. I recommend Casalprato to anyone looking to experience true Italian hospitality, family atmosphere, and the gastronomic delights of the area.

We booked this for a week in 2010 but when we arrived and saw the place we left them with our deposit and found somewhere else. To be fair, the apartment looked OK but it is the surrounds that make it so unattractive. The website photos are carefully taken to avoid the adjoining industrial sites, the main road at the door and the terrible state of the grounds - old farm equipment and rubbish strewn around like something out of Ma & Pa Kettle. They may well be nice people and great cooks but the yard was an uncared for disgrace. I live on a farm so it is not a city dweller reaction. Can't quite understand some of the comments made by others but maybe the owners clean it up sometimes. There are so many beautiful places to stay, this gives the area a bad name. Beware.

Spending time with the locals enriches one’s experience and understanding of the country one’s travelling in. However, it’s often not possible to do this because of the lack of a common language and the time you have to spend in one location. One simple and convenient way to overcome this is to allocate some time at a home stay (specialty lodging) that serves meal, especially one that does dinner. This is particularly worthwhile to travelers of East-Asian background because of our stronger than average interest on food (look at the number of food related programs we have) and how easily we can communicate on this topic.

The Agriturismo Casalprato is one such choice we had. We spent two nights there, which gave us ample time to explore some of the scenic drives and attractions around the region.

The rooms we stayed in were spacious, clean and comfortable (though they only had queen-sized beds and not twin-sharing). We went in May and it could still get quite cold at night (at least for someone who is used to the tropic climate). The Agriturismo overlooks a valley on the west and it is a good spot for taking sunset photos.

The highlights were the two outstanding home-cooked dinners we had. We were treated to four fabulous types of home-made pasta and each one of us had his/her favourite. The grilled steak was simply one of the best I have had. There wasn’t much seasoning, no gravy and this meant the steak had to be of quality. Our host, who grilled the steak outside in the chill, had exquisite control of the flame and conjured up steak that were moist, tender and flavourful. Simply a treat that lives well in the memory.

Our hosts do not speak English and we conversed through their daughter (who speaks a little) and a local couple who stayed there also. The daughter’s grandfather, who remembers the terrible days of WWII, shared with us his recollection of those troubled times. It’s pretty easy to get a conversation going once the food was on the table and it’s like a floodgate once we had a few glasses. A great experience!
