The perfect place for our Honeymoon. It was very charming and quiet but close enough to major sites. There is also a very friendly family of Wild Boar at the bottom of the garden who visit most evening.
Local attractions Siena and Florence were both wonderful to visit. There are plenty of great local restaurants (for a rural area), the best of which being Trattoria Grotta Della Rana in San Sano. A lot of great vineyards offering tastings and direct sales.

Casa La Sosta est une location idéale pour découvrir à deux cette région du fait de la qualité de son hébergement mais également le plaisir de ses espaces extérieurs et de la piscine privative. Elle est également très bien située entre Florence et Sienne dans ces paysages magnifiques de Toscane, dans la nature au calme, très appréciable pour souffler après les visites des principales villes de la région relativement fréquentées par les touristes en été.
Les propriétaires restent présents mais en toute discrétion : très appréciable
Local attractions Le restaurant situé à quelques mètres de Casa La Sousta est une très bonne adresse par la qualité des plats qui sont servis et par son cadre (terrasse très agréable), service raffiné tout en restant décontracté et prix tout à fait raisonnables. Le Palio de Sienne est à vivre, à voir au moins une des courses qui la précède (moins de monde) De très belles randonnées également à réaliser autour de l'hébergement Et bien sûr, sans grande originalité la découverte de Florence

A clean, well appointed little apartment, located attractively in the heart of Chianti. The apartment remains cool all day, which was good since we have a young baby. The pool is great, and we enjoyed many an afternoon chilling there. The outdoor dining area is also excellent. Overall, we thought it was good value for money, and the place is run by a charming couple.

Our only gripe is that the sofa and armchairs are not that comfy and are very large, and the TV is a bit old and needs replacing (makes a weird hissing noise when on). Otherwise, a lovely little place to stay.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The pool was a great addition and we made the most of it! We found the position of the property very good, with easy access to major tourist centres, and also with lots of more localised interest. We would certainly go back.
Local attractions Local osteoarthritis next door was very popular- we ate there twice and found the food excellent.

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung, optimal ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht! Auch der Außenbereich ist richtig schön gestaltet und lädt zum Ausruhen und Entspannen ein. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig nur umgeben von Bäumen und Feldern und die Vermieter sind nett und sehr diskret. Perfekter Ausgangspunkt für Tagesausflüge nach Siena, Florenz und San Gimignano, da die Städte innerhalb von 30-40 Minuten erreichbar sind.

Uitstekende ligging omwille van de nabijheid van veel bezienswaardigheden. Middenin een prachtig landschap en toch niet zo ver weg van de snelweg. Florence en Sienna zijn daardoor zeer gemakkelijk en snel bereikbaar.
Heel vriendelijke eigenaars en behulpzaam. Ze blijven discreet op de achtergrond.
We hebben genoten van ons verblijf en het zwembad.
Thanks Laura &Luigi!
Local attractions Florence is meer dan de moeite waard en we zijn 3x naar het restaurant naast de vakantiewoning geweest. Niet enkel omwille van het gemak en de korting die je er krijgt als je zegt dat je in La Sosta verblijft maar vooral omdat het er zééér lekker eten is.

We arrived at the villa at 7pm and found it quiet difficult to find it as the notes on how to get there were slightly wrong... The brown shutters have now been painted green which was a little confusing as we thought we were in the wrong place! However the villa was beautiful and the scenery was just amazing!!
Local attractions The restaurant next to the villa was lovely!! The staff and the food is excellent and even get a discount for staying in the villa!!! Would highly recommend!

Wir haben unseres Sommerurlaub in der Casa la Sosta sehr genossen! Die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Der Pool uns seine Lage sind absolut fantastisch: ein wunderbarer Ausblick und über dem Wasser kreisende Schwalben. Die Wohnung ist mit allem nötigen ausgestattet: ob Backen, Kochen, Braten oder Grillen – alles ist möglich.
Die Lage der Unterkunft ist für alle zu empfehlen, die Ruhe und Erholung suchen. Wer abends ein wenig flanieren möchte, muss kurze Strecken in die umliegenden pitoresken Dörfer und Städte fahren. Aus unserer Sicht ist Casa la Sosta uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert!

Local attractions Osteria all Piazza just over the road had wonderful meals and great service, highly recommended.

The helpfulness and sensitivity to our needs by the owners was faultless. The pictures of the pool and surrounding area does not do it justice. There is now a path and handrail down to the pool with comfortable sun loungers. We had some lovely nights sitting by the pool which was beautifully lit up.
The restaurant next door was an added bonus and the 3 nights we ate there provided the best food of the holiday.
Local attractions Beautiful scenery with so many lovely old towns to wander around. Sienna was well worth a visit.
