    Tradition's comfort

    Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Casale Classico is perfect for five couples or an extended family, and the location couldn't be better. Located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region and set on an idyllic hillside just 15 minutes from Florence (18 km) and less than an hour from Siena, the villa is within an hour's drive of Lucca, and all of the beautiful hill towns of Chianti are within easy reach. The closest village, Mercatale Val di Pesa, with shops and restaurants, is just 5 minutes away (2 km), and facilities for horseback riding are available nearby (3 km).

    The beautiful and spacious property includes the farmhouse (530 m2), a small dependance (40 m2) for two guests, and an amazing swimming pool in the 1 acre large garden. An unpaved road (1200 metres) leads to the property. 

    The house was recently restored and the attention to detail and beauty is remarkable. It has beautiful terracotta tile floors and beamed ceilings. The main house is divided into two floors and has five bedrooms with five en suite bathrooms. Upon request and for an additional fee, some additional beds can be added bringing the total capacity of the property to approx. 12+2 guests. 

    The manicured lawn is bordered with roses and olive trees, and a shaded stone patio overlooks the pool and is furnished with a long table, comfortable chairs, and a BBQ for al fresco dining watching the sunset.

    A few steps away is the beautiful pool with separate circular Jacuzzi tub, surrounded by lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas, and a panoramic view of the Chianti hills. Some steps away there is a pool house with changing room and bathroom with shower.

    We have stayed at this Villa before and very much enjoyed it.

    20-06-2017: We had a FANTASTIC time in Italy.
    We had a FANTASTIC time in Italy. The concierge was invaluable! She had great places for us to eat and visit and was very, very helpful overall. The house, as usual, was fantastic! We also would highly recommend Salvadonica, a hotel with a restaurant just around the corner from the house. We stayed there friday night and the rooms were great, and the food and staff wonderful. We took everyone to dinner there on wednesday of our week and we had a great dinner!! Hope you had a great summer! Thanks!

    The house was beautiful!
    The house and surroundings are beautiful in itself. The sunset is amazing. It was extra special because of the flowers in the house and the welcoming food. Every day cleaning service was also great. I certainly recommend the house to others.

  • Floor Plan
  • Activities

    The Chianti area: The hills of Chianti, criss-crossed with vines and crested with cypress trees have become the hallmark of Tuscany, the beauty of the landscape married to a quality of life which would be rare anywhere in the world. Chiantishire, as the English call it, has an infinite variety of hilltop villages where you can sip a cappuccino in one of the outdoor cafe's in the medieval squares, of cellars where you can sample the local wines from the barrels, of little trattorias serving robustly satisfying Tuscan food with its hams and salamis and delicious pastas and wild boar stew with white beans and salads growing wild in the hedgerows. The back roads wind uphill and down, between old stone walls crested with pale violet irises past Romanesque cloisters, sandstone farmhouses and shepherds with their flocks of sheep producing the famed 'pecorino' cheese.

    Sightseeing: You are in the heart of Tuscany and the list of excursions half or a whole day away is long: Florence, famous for its fine Renaissance art, the walled city of Lucca with its 99 churches, the leaning tower of Pisa, the Val d'Orcia with the Renaissance town of Pienza and the wine-making meccas of Montepulciano and Montalcino and the awe-inspiring abbey of Sant'Antimo are just a few...

    Distances: Florence is 15 to 20 minutes away, Greve in Chianti 25 minutes, San Gimignano 30 minutes, while Siena can be reached in 50 minutes. Montalcino and Pienza are a one and a half hour's drive, while the Thyrrenian sea is one hour away. Pisa and Lucca are one hour by car while the jet-set sea resort of Porto Ercole can be reached in approx. one and a half hours.

    Airports and transport: The Florence airport is 25 kilometres away and Pisa is at 118 kilometres, while the airport in Rome is less than three hours away and approx. 290 kilometres further south. The nearest railway station with most travel options is Florence.
