““Comfortable apartment in typical Umbrian Hill top viiiage untouched by tourism but near to all of Umbria and Tuscany”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Citta della Pieve is a beautiful little Umbrian Hill top village which really does look like a historic postcard. It is close to the much larger ,but still interesting town of Chiusi ,which has good rail ,and road links to all of Italy.
The apartment has 3 bedrooms, and is beautifully decorated to suit the period, but with all modern conveniences .We just loved the space, style and comfort of the apartment . The access to the apartment, through narrow historic streets and tunnels is wonderful in it self.
Local bus access is not very regular ,and taxis costs add up over time , so a car is advised if you want to get out and about a lot.
The host, Marco , attends to all requests very efficiently, and we recommend him highly. Marco was trying out different ideas for internet access. while we were there, so check the current situation before you book. Good WiFi is available at the Library 500 meters away, even when closed .
We had 4 weeks at Citta della Pieve , and travelled widely in day trips, We loved every minute of it.

“Umbrian Charm!”
Reviewed 18 May 2013 for a stay in July 2012

Umbrian Charm!
We had an excellent experience renting Casa Canestrelli. Citta Della Pieve is a beautiful medieval city nestled in the heart of Umbria. It is centrally located for those that would like to explore Italy; especially Umbria and Tuscany. We were able to explore all of the little towns in Umbria and Tuscany during the day and we were always happy to arrive back to our authentic Italian apartment in Citta Della Pieve each evening. In addition, we also easily took trips to Florence, Bologna, Rome and D'elba and had the apartment as our home base. The 2nd floor apartment was clean and well appointed. The authentic ceiling frescos and furnishings added to the charm of the apartment. The large living room/dining area and 3 bedrooms provided plenty of space for all of us. The beds were comfortable and provided quiet sleeping in the evening. We liked that there was a supermarket that was a 2 min walk away and we were able to purchase the basics. The nicely appointed kitchen had all of the amenities necessary to move right in. Each morning we would walk to get cappuccino and pastries--what a treat! The restaurants in the city were fabulous and we loved that the town is not overrun with tourists!!

This was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience from start to finish and we are already looking forward to our return trip this summer. Marco (the owner) was wonderful to rent from and very helpful. We have been renting in Italy for many years, but have never had a more rewarding experience than the week we spent at Casa Canestrelli
Grazie!

The view from this little town was breath taking. The house was spacious and cozy with beautiful furniture pieces. I will never forget the food I ate and the wine I drank in this town. No regrets!

“What an amazing location!”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 for a stay in June 2012

Been here through a friend recommendation and loved it! Right in centre of the village, walking away from the historic sites. You can breath history everywhere. Is minutes away from chianti and mobile montepulciano roads.
The apartment was furnished with all we needed and clean. The two double beds room we used were comfortable and well decorated.
Restaurants and a supermarket is near the house and view from the house was amazing. Definitely will be back!
