Our casa is the perfect place to stay for independent travellers desiring to experience authentic Tuscany in refined luxury and style. The villa is truly a home — designed, furnished, and equipped with every comfort — and beckons you to come and live “the Tuscan life” in the picturesque village of Castelmuzio — a medieval town, just south of Siena, surrounded by the greatest Tuscan wines, foods, and sceneries, and yet itself undiscovered and waiting for you to enjoy its hidden pleasures.
Isabella and Carlo Moricciani have devotedly restored the casa, a home of gracious living and sophisticated beauty, in a manner worthy of its spectacular location—a high belvedere overlooking the vast valley, with a bird’s-eye view of Sant’Anna in Camprena monastery where “The English Patient” was filmed and with the towns of Pienza, Montepulciano, and nearby Petroio on the horizon. The private garden of Casa Moricciani with its glorious hilltop position will take your breath away each time you gaze out a window or enjoy your cup of coffee or glass of wine on the terrace.
Best of all, a stay at the casa includes the highest level of personal assistance in English, and the guarantee that your stay will be a total Tuscan experience—something the Moricciani family has been providing their guests for almost 20 years at Cretaiole. You will discover Tuscany “on your own” but with the expert guidance and choreography of Isabella, who will create your very own customized vacation plan—and you will return home with an experience of a lifetime!
The casa is very strategically located near Siena in the little village of Castelmuzio and makes an excellent "home base" for your vacation! In only a few minutes you can reach the quintessential Tuscan hilltowns of Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Bagno Vignoni, and San Quirico d'Orcia, the beautiful summit of Monte Amiata, and the serene monasteries of Sant'Antimo, Sant'Anna in Camprena, and Monte Oliveto Maggiore.Within 45-60 minutes it's possible to be in Siena, Orvieto, Cortona, and Arezzo. Florence is only 1.5 hours drive away.In two hours, a long day but still possible, you can see Volterra, Lucca, Gubbio, Spoleto, and even Rome (by train!).

Walking between the walls and the houses of the fortified village, we arrived into Isabella's beautiful house after a minute walk. Inside everything was wonderfully prepared for us, beautiful delicacies and greens from the farm, kitchen for a chef, pristine house decorated with taste. The linen, towels and toileteries were also top notch.
Stepping out on the other side, a garden and terrasse above the walls of the village open over a tremendous 180° view of the toscan countryside. Sunbath on the reclining chairs and meals under the pergola would have kept us inside this marvelous place if the most wonderful villages, sites and wines of toscany hadn't drove us out for exciting day trips.
Isabella has made a huge work to propose the best visits, the most typical restaurants and she is always a great help for any question and a great to solve our small tourist problems.
Thank you Isabella for sharing your home and your country with us. We will come back.
All the Best,
vio and eric
