Le Casine really is a little gem of a location. You're in the middle of a largely agricultural landscape surrounded by open views of sunflower fields (at the right time of year) and olive groves. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and largely well presented. The private swimming pool is a welcome antidote to some of the really hot days! Within a fifteen minute walk you have the convenience of a local supermarket, launderette, post office, bars, pizzeria and pharmacy. We found the locals very friendly and keen to help. The fifteen minute drive to a lovely place like Cortona is an added bonus as it is brimming full with atmosphere, great restaurants and music festivals.
The added advantage of this particular location is the ease with which you can get to anywhere and everywhere that is of interest to the visitor. The motorway network is very close by and a choice of train stations means that Rome and Florence are easily and quickly reached.
The owners of Le Casine Christina and Joe are simply delightful people. Nothing is too much trouble to them and I make no apology for admitting that they became firm friends during our six week stay.
Why did we end up staying so long? Well originally we had intended to move across the border into Umbria nearer to Castiglione del Lago. But when it fully dawned on us how easy it was to get to the places we planned to visit , there seemed little point in leaving!
Finally due to our extended stay we actually stayed in four of the apartments and can report favourably on all of them. Just avoid the ones with a spiral staircase if you have very young children with you, are above average size or have arthritic knees!
Our favourite apartments were Limone and Girasole, the former for the raised balcony and the commanding views from it. Girasole was more spacious, close to the pool and all on the same level.
We feel certain that you will enjoy your stay should you decide to book, so go ahead!
