“Fairytale lodging in a pastoral Tuscan dreamscape”
Reviewed 23 August 2018 for a stay in August 2017

Not a day has passed since our stay Castello di Porciano when I haven't traveled back there in my mind to relive the tranquility and romance of that time. And I was there with 4 children so that I could find anything tranquil and romantic under those conditions says a lot.

The cottage was devastatingly charming, spacious and immaculately clean. Early risers, avid readers, catnappers and harried moms: you will especially enjoy the hideaway off the master bedroom with views of the Tuscan countryside and a door. The laundry was such a welcome amenity for our large family. The kitchen was well equipped and Fede had it stocked with thoughtful amenities to get us through until we could shop in town. And what a treat that was. Bakeries in hidden alleys, the most outrageously sweet fruit, meats and cheese to make you weep. The restaurants served some of our favorite meals of all time and the people are so kind and patient with even the most horrible Italian (mine).

Martha is welcoming and warm and provides fascinating historical perspective on the region, the town of Stia and the Castello. Fede is also very knowledgable about local history and is an excellent guide to the area. We wanted for simply nothing while we were there.

The grounds and the castle are the icing on this delicious cake. Flowers and trees burst with colors and catch every breeze. The views of the Tuscan countryside are every photo you've ever seen writ large. The castle tour is fascinating and transporting. And speaking of views, the one from the top of the castle will never, ever leave you. It will be your best souvenir.

“Lovely setting and beautiful vistas.Casa Scaletta was perfect for the three of us.”
Reviewed 29 June 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The cottage at Porciano,just outside of Stia, was a great place to stay to unwind after two weeks in Rome and Florence. Great place to take day trips from.In Arrezzo we visited Basilica San Francesco, to see the Piero della Francesca frescos in the Cappella Bacci. In the area of Porciano and Stia there are many very good reataurants. La Rana,Pizzeria da Vincenzo, Osteria Crananbar,Osteria Toscana Twist, and the Gelato store on the Piazza of Stia. A good place to just sit and have your gelato. Our host was very helpful with places to visit and a good guide to Restaurants. Stia has good shops for food; such as a butcher and a general store. Frances is a very good barber.
