“wonderful experience in Tuscany”

We just returned from our 2 week trip to Italy which included a 1 week stay at Villa LaCasina. There was plenty of room for our 3 famillies of 6 adults, 2 children and 4 teens. GiGi and his family are truly warm,welcoming and extremely hospitable. They went above and beyond to make sure our every need was met.
We arrived late evening on Saturday and Nicolo met us in Consuma and led us to the villa which we were thankful for as we never would have found this villa on our own. In the fridge, on arrival was a nice tray of cheese and meats and fresh bread which was delicious. The kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials one needs to cook at the villa. We ate breakfast at the villa everyday and made a deliciuos barbecue supper one day.One day, Gigi provided us with homemade tagliatelle and ragu sauce with fresh herbs which was delicious. Gigi directed us to a local vineyard in Soci where we had an amazing tour of ancient wine vineyard. Gigi was at the villa every morning to clean the pool and water the beautiful plants ans he was always very friendly and helpful making sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Nicolo also recommended several wonderful restaurants in Poppi and even made our reservations.
Poppi is truly a beautiful town and we spent one day exploring there and visiting the castle which we all truly enjoyed. Although we drove to Florence, Siena, and Cortona - all easily done in separate day trips: there is plenty to see and explore in the local area too.
The villa itself is set high in the mountain and the drive up the mountain is a bit scary especially the first time- we unfortunately had a minivan and I definitely don't recommend minivan if at all possible - you really need a smaller car to get around some of the very tricky corners. But once you arrive at the villa the view is so breathtaking that you quickly realize that the drive there was worth it. There are beautiful flowers everywhere and lemon and lime trees and it is so peaceful. At night the view of the lights of Poppi is truly mesmorizing.
I can't say enough about how splendid LaCasina, Poppi and Gigi and his family are- this is truly a gem in Tuscany!
The only other drawback was the internet - there was wifi but very slow and some of us were unable to access it- having said that, this may have had something to do with the fact that there were 12 users all trying to log in during our stay.

“We would love to come back!”

This is an amazing villa in an amazing landscape. Overviewing soft green hills with the pitoresque town of Poppi in the distance. We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed every moment. Gigi and his family made our stay truly comfortable, in a very discrete but reliable way. A perfect place for bigger groups or families that want to relax, enjoy the pool or visit one of the interesting cultural sights nearby. Very quiet, remote but luxury. We would love to come back!

“Stunning Villa and Views”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We couldn't have asked for more from this beautiful holiday villa in the Tuscany hills. The large stylish villa overlooking a jaw-dropping view of the stunning valley looking towards the ancient town of Poppi was just right for our family get together of 8 adults, one 4 year old and two under 1 year olds. Every corner you turn in the villa offers amazing space to relax in with views from every angle. All the bedrooms were very comfortable, with more than adequate bathrooms for the whole family. The owners supplied two cots and two high chairs. The kitchen/eating area was huge but you could also eat on the veranda or balcony. We enjoyed using the BBQ but more especially the pizza oven which was a great success.

The large well kept garden includes a swimming pool and shaded seating area. Gigi, our host, had a quiet presence at the villa every day, cleaning the pool first thing in the morning and asking if we needed any bread, milk or even pizza delivered from the local town . The family who owned this property took great pride in making this an experience to remember. We asked if they had a paddling pool and it was supplied the next day. One of our party wanted to celebrate a birthday at the villa and Gigi's daughter Stella, together with a local chef, put on a wonderful surprise dinner with cake and floating lanterns. A night to remember! As well as picking 2 of our party up from the local station, Stella organised a doctor for one of our party who was unwell and acted as translator.

We travelled from Florence to Poppi and La Casina is high up on the hills in a beautiful location but remember to ask for directions as it's a bit of a hideaway. A very big thank you to the Tapinassi family for a holiday to remember.
