August 2015 "...General: The villa was lovely, and much to my surprise, better than the description and photo’s online - in my opinion. The décor was a fusion of new & old, and very comfortable. We (especially the kids) absolutely LOVED the pool… and having this to ourselves was a key driver for us opting for the villa. Only real downside were the biting insects (to be expected really) – and I would recommend that you use the strongest repellent you can tolerate to keep them at bay. Location: The villa is a little off the beaten track (literally) and the approach to the villa is quite steep – although even small cars seemed quite able to travel up/down the lane. The villa is located just below the main town of Gambassi Terme and within easy walking distance – but its position is still very quiet and you hear no road noise. The roads to and from Gambassi are generally good, and it only take 10-15 minutes to get to the main arterial main roads & motorways – giving easy access to Siena, Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano, Livorno, Lucca etc. Town (Gambassi) The local town is not very touristy (I think a good thing), so you really get to see a more honest/less tainted view of Tuscany. It does however have all the basics: small supermarket, bakery, 3-4 restaurants, 1-2 bars etc. and a nice central square where many of the locals gather of an evening. Very friendly people from our experience. Arrival/owner Carlo, the owner, was fantastic! He could not have been more welcoming and attentive. He popped bye every now and again to make sure we were ok, but was not intrusive. He was also very helpful when it came to offering local knowledge of shops, tourist information, restaurant recommendations etc. Summary: Lovely villa, friendly & helpful owner, beautiful position, ideal location for sightseeing & exploration – will definitely return!"
September 2013 "...An ideal location centrally in Tuscany enabled us to day-trip all over Tuscany without any problems. The house providied the ideal mix of a peaceful and tranquil location but close to all sight-seeing such as San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa, Florence (including outlet malls!) and we even managed a magical day trip to Cinque Terre. The owner, Carlo, was very hospitable and friendly and made our stay even more enjoyable – including giving us a bottle of his own home-made wine! His handover instructions were comprehensive and made our stay all that much easier. The house, with it’s own pool, provided the perfect location for our family whihc included two tennage boys (14 & 18) and had ample room for us all to enjoy our own space when needed. The facilities were great, including the bbq which enbaled us to self-cater when we felt likie it, but the village of Gambassi Terme provdied supermarket and great restaurants for when we didn’t! The local Pizzeria provided us with the best pizza of our 6 week stay in Italy! We definitely would love to return as there is still so much left to explore from this ideal location. Once again, the pre-trip info and support provided by Don McLean of Cottagestocastles was outstanding and served to make our Tuscany trip a ‘trip of a lifetime’! Thanks Don!"

September 2013 "...hanks Sarah Lovely time in Tuscany. Carlo was very helpful and cut the grass when we asked as it was very long on arrival. The cottage was lovely and very comfortable. The only negative comments I would make are: The size of the BBQ, too small for the size of property. Also the lack of lighting in the kitchen and on the veranda. Of an evening it was very difficult to BBQ once it got dark which it did quite early in the middle of September. I hope these comments are helpful to you."

August 2012 "...On arrival we were made very welcome by Carlo who agreed to wait for us as we were running a bit late. The Villa was ideal for us with a lovely swimming pool. The Villa actually looked better than in the brochure. The air conditioning the bed room was essential as during our sty it was very warm even at night. The town was only a short distance away and some of the main towns such as Volterra and San Gimignano were not that far away. We had a very restful and enjoyable holiday and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again to Carlo."

July 2012 "...We loved our stay at Capanno Di Riorsoli. The villa was exactly as described and pictured on the website. The owner Carlo was lovely and helpful. Everything, from booking to checking out, went smoothly. We would definitely return and recommend the villa and Cottages to Castles to friends and family. We had a terrible experience with the villa for our first week, which was booked through another company, and we really appreciated the difference in quality and service with Capanno Di Riorsoli and Cottages to Castles. Our only constructive feedback is perhaps Carlo could put another small sofa in the living area as the existing sofa only seats 2 and the villa is designed for 4. Most nights we sat outside so this didn't bother us but we did have a couple of dvd nights when we 2 adults sat at the dining table whilst the children lounged on the sofa. But it wouldn't put us off coming again! We would also like to thank you for putting us in touch with Enzo of Chianti Inside Out. He was brilliant."

The inside outside flow from the lounge and bedroom was great, carlo has done a very good job. Carlo was brillient host and goes to any length to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. We will be back. Regards Phil Smith & Lesley North"

June 2012 "...My wife and I stayed at Sr Poserelli’s place for a week in June 2012. We were joined by family with four of us in total. In all respects, from first impressions throughout the stay, the house, the garden, the location and our host met and exceeded our expectations. It was well presented, tidy, had off-street parking, was quiet and welcoming. The pool was a luxurious extra for those that enjoyed it. Sr Poserelli knew and was able to share a great deal about the local and not so local area, and we were thus able to explore the countryside with his advice on what to see, where to dine and so on. The facilities at the house also meant we were able to cook for ourselves from time to time, including being able to use a barbecue onsite. Having a variety of local herbs in the garden added to the enjoyment of catering for ourselves. All in all the location, the house and our host were excellent and we have no hesitation in recomending it to others."

August 2011 "... We love it, The place The villa Carlo the owner Everything. Easy reach to the most wonderful places. The weather 35-40 degrees this year, about the same the year before. We are hoping to go again next year at the same time, same place. It feels like home to us. So glad we found this villa and carlo and his wife."

July 2011 "...Hi Sarah, We had a fabulous holiday in Tuscany so many thanks. The villa was very nicely furnished, well maintained, and a great place to stay for a week - I would definitely recommend it to others and would happily return there ourselves. I should also note that the owner, Carlo, was extremely welcoming and very helpful - really made it that extra bit special. Again, many thanks! Allan"
