Dear Simone and Gabriella,
we enjoyed the time at Casa Celeste very much. We had two recreational weeks with fun in the pool and the wineries around here. The beautiful view and lots of fine food. Hill climbing by bike was challenging. Thanks for your nice ‘Welcome’ and your help.

We rented this house for the last week of September. We arrived to a very warm welcome from the owner and his wife, and stunning sunset views from the living room and terrace. The stonework of the house has been restored beautifully, and the owner is rightly very proud of the handmade furniture and windows. The house has clearly been a labour of love for the family, and it certainly invokes rural Italy’s past. The. We were very unlucky with a whole week of rainy weather, but we welcomed the opportunity to warm up in the lovely wood-fired sauna, and to relax in the comfortable leather armchairs in front of the wood-burner. Despite the wet and windy weather we experienced, we could appreciate that the house would have been delightful during good weather, when the well-designed outdoor areas (two terraces with lovely views, and a number of different grassed areas) could be enjoyed. The only suggestions we would make for other guests is to be aware that the house doesn’t have a dishwasher or central heating (as advertised), the internet access is not broadband (it only worked intermittently at very low speed during our stay - not suitable for streaming or downloading), and some may not enjoy the early mornings during the hunting season, when hunting takes place within 25 metres of the house.
Our stay in your beautiful house was really fantastic. Each morning when we woke up, the first things we saw was the amazing surroundings. The pizza oven and the BBQ were very useful to us, therefore we have used them a lot! Can we please take your wood oven??? J and also the view…J Again, we have really enjoyed our stay here and we will come back for sure. Kind regards,
