I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I organised a very relaxed hen do (bachelorette party) at the villa and the location is fantastic, overlooking the Tuscan hills with the most beautiful sunrise and sunsets. The living space was comfortable and you had everything you needed in terms of amenities. Daniela and Giambattista made the organisation process so easy and smooth, responding patiently to my every email and being on standby throughout the weekend in case we needed anything. If you are a large group you should absolutely organise a private dinner that they cook for you - the food was phenomenal. This is a fantastic option for a weekend or a week away!
We couldn’t have wished for anything better. The girls were talking about it the entire way home and the bride was very happy.
Our stay was wonderful. We really wished we could have been there longer to enjoy more of the landscape and meditation rooms that were offered. It was in a great location for exploring the Bolgheri wine region and some delicious local food. Giambattista and Daniela were so helpful with tips on places to visit in the surrounding area. If given the chance I would go back to this place for a week.
This was by far the most enjoyable airbnb experience we've ever had! Casale Pundarika is like a small piece of heaven set amidst the peaceful Tuscan hills and forests. There is so much to do around the house (hot tub, forest hammocks, spending time with the pets, yoga) that you're almost going to enjoy it more than the tourist attractions of Tuscany. Nevertheless, the beaches, medieval towns and snorkeling spots are all within easy reach by car. Daniela and Giambattista are very friendly, accommodating people and it was great to share dinner and meditation with them 🙂 We thoroughly recommend their place and look forward to returning with other friends and family!
Thank you so much for being the best hosts! The meditation and dinner were so amazing, thank you for allowing us to take part 🙂
“What a magical place! Once a buddhist retreat, Casale Pundarika still has the rich character of its former occupants in the authentic artwork and artifacts hidden throughout the property. Our upstairs room was comfortable and private, with a large bathroom and a small but well-equipped kitchen, but the real gems are the other parts of the facilities. Amazing views, yoga room and sunrise yoga platform, hot tub, hiking trails, and musical instruments are just part of the offerings. Daniela and Giambi were the kindest hosts we could ask for. They have onsite massage available, and they allowed us to borrow their massage table one morning - something we have at home but have dearly missed while traveling. I couldn't recommend Casale Pundarika more highly, and we will certainly stay there again if we have the opportunity.”
