LA CASETTA

Collesalvetti Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Charming 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom villa with pool, viewing Tuscan rolling hills

La Casetta is a traditional, although entirely refurbished, charming villa with pool located on a hill-top, surrounded by olive trees and enjoying breathtaking views over Tuscan countryside.

The house, surrounded by a large, tended garden, enjoys beautiful views extending from Pisa and the Apuane alps to the hills surrounding Leghorn and the sea beyond.

There is Wi-Fi internet connection, air conditioning can be provided in the bedrooms.

The 16-meter swimming pool, which area is fenced, offers pleasant refreshment in the hotter months of the year.

La Casetta’s proximity to numerous places of natural and cultural interest as well as sporting facilities make it the ideal place for your holiday. Numerous golf courses, can be easily reached. Close to art cities, Pisa, Lucca, Florence and Volterra are repectively 20,40 and 50 minutes by car, the Cinque Terre can be easily reached for daily trips too.

The property is ideal for a relaxing holiday with friends as well as for family holidays.

La Casetta is a child friendly property, ideal for families with kids, a large lawn right in front of the house is perfect for kids to play and the pool area is fenced.

The property is ideally located on a quiet and panoramic hill top, with amazing views over the country side.

Pisa's international airport, reached by low cost airlines such as Easyjet and Ryanair, is reachable in 20 minutes by car.

Major cultural destinations as well as the seaside lie just behind the corner.

Upon request, I am happy to provide a sort of concierge service booking wine tours in some of the best Italian wineries next to Bolgheri (San Guido, Ornellaia, Argentiera just to mention some, are reachable in abt 30-35 mins from the property) and restaurants, as well as providing tips for tailor made daily trips.

Guestbook comments from the owner
La casetta is a beautifully maintained home with modern amenities in the Tuscan countryside. it is surrounded by breathtaking views of rolling hills ( the pictures on the website do not do justice :)). It is a true paradise. It was a perfect way to combine relaxation with day trips to Pisa, Lucca, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa, wineries in Bogheri, Populonia, and many more. It was a perfect Italy trip for my husband's birthday with family and friends. Lastly, the owner, Federica was amazing. She was helpful and accommodating in every way. Her extensive knowledge of the area guided us to most amazing places including restaurants and wineries. We will definitely be back!!

I have a real passion for gardening and I enjoyed learning about interior design while refurbishing the house, in 2005. I then started renting it out and I liked establishing friendly relations with my guests, from all over the world. I can also say I'm in business as I worked for an agency that rents holiday villas in Italy for almost 3 years. Every year I do my best in order to renew the house and improve it. I love the region and my house particularly! I do all the best in order to help my guests enjoying their holiday at La Casetta as much as possible, giving all sort of tips for daily trips, good restaurants and other useful information.

Well, it belongs to my family, we decided to refurbish it completely and if at the beginning it seemed to be an Epic venture, it slowly became something concrete and amusing. I enjoyed choosing the plants for the garden and the furnishings and up to now, all our guests appreciated these efforts. You can see it is not just a house available for rentals, we care about it and we are happy when our guests feel the same.

The location is quiet and secluded and, at the same time, close to many interesting places. The views are relaxing, all guests feel it's not just a house for rent, it's my family's house.

The location is ideal to relax and its proximity to art cities as Pisa, Lucca and Florence, to the best Tuscan wineries (San Guido, Ornellaia, Terriccio just to mention some) and to the sea make it the strategic starting point for daily trips.

I am happy to provide a sort of 'concierge service' to my guests assisting them with suggestions and making reservations, I also enjoy cooking and can prepare Tuscan meals (this last, as an extra though).

My true passions are the garden and the proximity to a couple of spots where I can do some kitesurfing and SUP (Stand Up Paddling) as well as biking.

Very nice stay at LA CASETTA

  • 5 of 5
We rent the whole house for one week and we spent a wonderful time.
We were four couples with four children.
The house is very confortable, all equiped and very big. A large and nice swimming pool with a nice view on the tuscan landscapes. Very safe for children, very quiet to rest and near the main places to visit (Pisa, Lucca, sea side...). Thank you to Federica for her kindness and efficiency.

Tuscany is famous for both its natural and its artistic heritage. Many places of artistic interest can be easily reached from Castell’Anselmo. Livorno is a charming seaside town, founded by the Medici family and still dotted with fosses and fortresses dating back to those times. The town also has a large number of Liberty style villas. Lovers of the Macchiaioli school should not miss the Fattori Museum where many works by Macchiaioli painters are displayed. Pisa with its leading tower is only a 15 minute drive; Lucca can be reached in 40 minutes; both Volterra and Florence lie approximately 50 minutes from the farmhouse. Numerous sporting activities, from hang-gliding (within the farm) to horse riding, golf and trekking are available nearby. The sea is just behind the hills, Calafuria, Castiglioncello and Quercianella lie 20 minutes away from the farm, it takes 45 minutes to get to Forte dei Marmi.

Other Activities: hang-gliding

Golf: Numerous golf courses, some of which are quite famous, can be easily reached from the farmhouse:

Cosmopolitan Golf & Country Club - Tirrenia, 18 holes, 29 km (30 minutes)

Golf Club Tirrenia, 9 holes, 29 km (30 minutes)

Castel Falfi - Montatone (Pontedera), 18 holes, 58 km (40 minutes)
