House Rules

1) We provide all the linen (for the bed and bathroom) and the furniture for living (pots, pans, forks and knives, glasses...etc.); all the other consumables are self catering (there are shops and supermarkets where you may find everything you need, within 4-8 minutes drive). The only towels which are extras, are the ones for the swimming pool, which we rent upon request and are then given for the entire period of stay.
2) At Castello di Pastine we do not offer phone service. We recommend our guests to make sure to bring a working mobile phone with them. We offer free Wi-Fi (inside the units, and on the outdoors: terraces, swimming pool and gardens).
3) We ask to leave the apartment without any garbage, opened food rests, or dirty pans/dishes.
4) It is not possible to have visits in Castello di Pastine from external guests/friends. The maximum number of people allowed inside the apartment is 4 (children of any age included).
5) Castello di Pastine is not an Hotel; it offers holiday homes (Case appartamenti Vacanze); they are not official tourist structures, such as hotels, residences, etc. but private houses. Being such, they do not have standards or categories that are internationally recognized, indeed they reflect, in their architecture and furnishing, the local traditions and the personal taste of the owner.
This is precisely the kind of holiday we offer: the chance to partake in the culture of Tuscany, living in the same surroundings as an inhabitant would. In order to live this experience in the right spirit, it is important not only that the holiday-maker accepts but also that he will be able to appreciate the differences in the properties we are proposing in comparison with those where he normally lives.
We do not offer all the services offered by an Hotel: we do not have a 24h reception, we are not allowed to serve any type of food (breakfast neither), etc. (maybe in the future we will..but it is work in progress). We do not offer a regular "front desk service"...we provide an house book with basic information of the area. Coming to us is just like renting a furnished apartment.
6) Our swimming pool is 18x9 meters. It is not heated. Its shallow part has a depth of 1,10 meters, then there is a descent part which connects to the deep part which has a depth of about 2,70 meters. Please note: the swimming pool does not have a pool attendant nor a guardian.

Amazing place in Toscana! We loved our stay here...wonderful place with an amazing view on the valley, close to Firenze, Siena, St Geminiano and other beautiful cities in the region. Guido is a great host, he explained us everything about the appartement , the region and gave us a huge book with many suggestions for activities, places to visit, restaurants, everything! Just perfect! If you want to just relax, the swimming pool or the barbecue corner are awesome. We recommend a lot this place and thank again Guido! :)

Guido est un hôte chaleureux, très à l'écoute des moindres demandes (il nous a fourni un toaster dans l'heure) et pleins de bonnes recommandations touristiques. L'endroit est exceptionnel avec une vue à 180° sur toute la Toscane et un calme absolu. De plus, c'est très bien situé par rapport aux principaux points d'intérêt. La maison est typique, confortable et parfaitement bien équipée. Gros plus pour la propreté, irréprochable. Pour finir, l'espace piscine est de très bonne qualité et la pergola attribuée est très agréable. Notre seul regret serait presque de ne pas être restés plus longtemps !

Comment résumer notre séjour en un mot : Parfait. Guido est l'hôte le plus sympathique, serviable, gentil, à l'écoute que nous avons rencontré. Il nous a donné de très bons conseils touristiques. Il n'y avait pas de micro ondes, il est allé nous en trouver un en moins de 5 minutes alors que nous étions samedi à 21h. Notre bébé avait un lit, une chaise haute et une baignoire. La maison est immense, la terrasse avec la vue sur un paysage valloné typique de la Toscane est un paradis. Et je ne vous parle même pas de la piscine avec bungalow privé qui est digne d'un 5 étoiles. N'hésitez pas une seconde Chez Guido c'est le paradis.

Ciao!

I am Guido, the manager and "factotum" of Castello di Pastine, a self-catering holiday-rental resort near Barberino Val d'Elsa, in the Tuscan coutryside.

I was born in Florence on 1975. I spent all my childhood in Firenze. After high-school, I had the opportunity to go abroad and to study in Boston, at Boston University, School of Communication, where I got my bachelor on 2001.
Back in Florence, I felt in love with an Italian girl, who is now my wife. We got married on 2005. Now we have 4 marvelous children, who are our joy.

Among my greatest passions/hobbies are: board games and theater; I am an impro-actor, I run an amateur theater company, and I am a teaching assistant in a theatre in Florence.

I love to meet people from all around the world ^-^
