Our experience at Le Caggiole (September 22-25) was one of the fondest memories of a wonderful month long visit to Italy. My husband and I were greeted with a warm welcome from the moment we arrived and provided with a wonderful stay during our time with Giacomo and "Mama Ornella" We thoroughly enjoyed the lovely, clean and comfortable accommodations and most especially the warm hearts extended to us! Many thanks to Giacomo, for taking time out of his busy schedule to take us into his vineyard and explain the growing, pruning and harvesting process. It was special for us to be able listen to the history of the Martinelle land, be a witness to the love & respect Giacomo has for it, and of course, to see it for ourselves. A special "mille grazie" to Ornella. We grew so very fond of her during our stay and were sad to leave! Her welcoming and generous spirit is apparent in all she does for their guests. We will always remember Giacamo and Ornella, as well as the special touches and hospitality they extended to us to make our stay so memorable. We hope that our lives cross paths again.

Superb location! The pastoral settings, solace, tranquility all are adding to the majestic environment of the place. It is so close to nature. A break from the industrial settings! You rightly said, what’s more romantic than this. What would be more beautiful than sitting in such environment and having dinner on a terrace. Really want to visit! DbaiG Bolee.com

Where to begin ... the freshly baked breakfasts were delicious (and that says a lot coming from Portland, OR where great bakeries are on every corner), the view of the farm out our window was absolutely beautiful, the host family could not have been more kind (they even set up a crib and a high chair for our little one!), the nearby town was one of our favorites in all of Tuscany, the running trails, the dinner, perfect, perfect, perfect. My only complaint is that it's so far from where we live!

My sister and I took our parents to Italy for thier 55 anniversary + Mom's 75 birthday. Thank God everyone is healthy enough to make this trip. Thank goodness for this wonderful bed & breakfast. Coming into our rooms after touring the surrounding area each night was like coming home. It was a perfect place to let dad and mom unwind after lots of walking. Quite and peaceful... much like our rural homes back in the USA. Wonderful host and hostess too. You'll love it!

This is a gem on the Tuscany countryside and ideally situated to visit the many stunning hilltop towns in the area. What makes it so special among many places that you could stay in Tuscany, is the 5th generation family, The Martinelli's, who care for the property and their guests. The website photo truly reflect the atmosphere here and the dinner they served was special! We were so pleased to have made this our base for a full week and the stay was excellent value all round.
