Casa Eden: It's what it says on the tin!

Casa Eden: It's what it says on the tin!
  • 5 of 5
Each of the 3 times we have stayed at Casa Eden with friends, we have had a fantastic holiday. The villa is large enough for family and friends to share comfortably. The views from the terrace are amazing both during the day and at night when looking down to Vinci and the surrounding area.
The location is great for exploring the region and is ideally located roughly half way between Pisa and Florence, and Siena is also within easy travelling distance. A car is needed to be able to get around although the railway station is a few miles away, if you prefer to take the train into the cities. Vinci itself is small but with the museum and some great places to eat, it's a lovely base.
Chiara and Ian are welcoming and have been known to provide information about where to eat out, how to get to places and even give an update on the weather! A great holiday destination.

Great home for large family with stunning views

  • 5 of 5
We had a larger family group of 12 people. This house was large enough to sleep everyone and have enough bathrooms as well as enough room at the diner table so we could all eat together. The villa is centrally located in Tuscany and it made it easy to go on day trips to other cities. The house is situated on so you see out to the whole valley. Chiara and Ian were fabulous hosts and helped us with making our stay in Italy a memorable one. Thank you Chiara and Ian!

All that Tuscany is made out to be..

  • 5 of 5
This place was everything I had hoped for in a Tuscan village. Up in the hills with magnificent views. We hung out in the front porch overlooking olive groves on most evenings, enjoying great local wine.

Very helpful owners who live close by... gave great restaurant recommendations and ideas for things to do.

A "FANTASTIC" place for your Holiday - a must!

A "FANTASTIC" place for your Holiday - a must!
  • 5 of 5
We had an a wonderful 2 weeks at Casa Eden, Chiara and Ian were fantastic hosts, provided great customer service and we could not fault our 2 week holiday. Chiara and Ian recommended restaurants and even booked them on our behalf. They recommended places to visit and as we had a number of young children in our party they took this into consideration. Casa Eden has a very traditional and wonderful feeling from the moment you pull up on the driveway. Situated high up on the mountain the views are breath-taking. Everything you need is within a short drive and there are some good restaurants in walking distance (even with young children). We would recommend not buying any wine from the local shops as the wine made by Chiara and Ian's family (in Vinci) is superb and great value for money - we drank nothing else. We also recommend eating at a local Pizza restaurant a little further up the hill - you sit on a balcony on the edge of the mountain and the views are fantastic - the food is just as good and all the locals eat there. The work that has been done by Chiara and Ian on the 18th Century farmhouse is of a very high standard and our stay was very comfortable with modern facilities such as a dishwasher and DVD player (great for the kids when you want them to stay out of the midday sun). The pool was great and had a fantastic location on the edge of the hill over looking Vinci, although we believe a new pool has been put in since our stay - can't wait to go back and use it.

If you are thinking of going to Tuscany and want tradition, breath taking views, fantastic customer service and good food/wine Casa Eden and Vinci is the place. It is perfect for the older holiday maker as well as for large families with children of all ages. This was easily one of our best holidays and in our opinion great value for money.

Relax in Tuscan hills

  • 5 of 5
Casa Eden is a beautiful farmhouse in the hills of Montalbano near the village of Vinci. The location is very central and close to Empoli with train connections to Firenze and Lucca/Pisa. An 18 holes Golf course (Montecatini Golf) is also nearby. Casa Eden itself is well equiped and ideal for cookery courses/workshops. We spent several holidays in Casa Eden (also with larger groups) and will certainly come back!

Wonderful holidays in Casa Eden

  • 5 of 5
We've spent our holidays at Casa Eden the first time in 2005 and again in 2007 with our family and friends. Casa Eden is a very nice and comfortable typically Tuscan house with enough area for big families or a group of friends.
It has also a very nice garden with an own pool where you can relax after you come back from a day trip to Florence, Siena or Pisa or one of the small villages in the surrounding wine hills.
Casa Eden is also very comfortable for families with children who don´t want to travel around all the time. Our daughter enjoyed it to stay at the pool the whole time. And in the evening you can make a barbecue in the garden. enjoying the tasty wine and olive oil from Podere Zollaio or the also home made Limoncello and from the garden you have a spectacular view over the wine hills.
Everything you need to buy you will get it in Vinci and there you have also nice restaurants if you are too lazy to cook or if you want to taste typical Tuscan food.
And if you need some informations or help the owners Chiara and Ian will help you.
The first time we came to Vinci was at our honeymoon in 1996 and there we met Lisa, the nice and very friendly lady who owns Podere Zollaio. Since that time we spent a lot of holiday in one of the also very nice and comfortable apartments of Podere Zollaio.
During all these years Lisa and her family got friends of us. A part of our family will come to Vinci this September and we are certainly considering spending our next holiday at Vinci in 2009.
Every time we come to Casa Eden or to Podere Zollaio we feel like coming home.
