Pisa Apartment Rental Photos and Description


--- Navigate between our three accommodations (Moraiolo, Frantoio and Leccino) using the above tabs ---

Also visit our official website: !

Ideally situated at a stone’s throw from Volterra and San Gimignano, Monte Casone is a veritable haven of peace blessed with a view which is worthy of the most beautiful of postcards. Rest assured, you will experience moments of complete fulfillment, which you will be happy to share with your loved ones in the large overflow swimming pool or during unforgettable evenings with a good glass of Brunello wine.

Whether you are a golfer, a walker, a passionate historian or whether you are simply looking for peace and tranquillity, you will find what you are looking for in Monte Casone.


The Frantoio (104m2) and Leccino (106m2) cottages are located within the farm complex whereas the Moraiolo cottage (98m2) is to be found on the site of an old hayloft (please navigate using above tabs). Each cottage has a furnished private patio.

The three spacious cottages were designed and equipped to make you feel at home. From the Nespresso® machine to the Blu-ray player and the docking station for your iPod/iPhone®, you will find everything you need for your well-being.

Because luxury is in the detail.


Monte Casone can welcome you all year round with the highest level of comfort and respect for the environment, even in winter. To achieve this the farm holiday accommodation has been renovated recently with green technologies which have brought the buildings to the highest level of energy performance (A+).

The use of these technologies, which is extremely rare in this region of Italy, offers you the possibility of visiting Tuscany out of season and thus to avoid overcrowding in the high season in the popular tourist destinations.

About Mathieu & Elisabeth

Belgian Citizens, Mathieu and Elisabeth immigrated in Tuscany almost 10 years ago. This airline Captain and his wife will warmly welcome you in their estate of 9 hectares.

What makes this apartment unique

The buildings in Monte Casone have been luxuriously restored according to original plans and have been awarded the much sought after energy performance certificate A+.

In order to achieve this a number of green technologies were used during the renovation, such as a closed loop geothermal well system, pyramid shaped under-floor heating and cooling, polarized low emissivity windows, wood fibreboard insulation, dual-flow ventilation and, in addition, the construction of a solar power plant which generates around thirty megawatts of electricity per year. This resolutely environment friendly approach has enabled Monte Casone to reduce its fossil fuel consumption to zero for all the tertiary part of its operation.

This is part of what makes Monte Casone so unique: the harmonious combination of respect for its heritage with the luxury of the installation and respect for the environment.

Tuscan Gem for Tuscan Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Excellent bright, spacious, modern and very well equipped accommodation with a delightful patio with incredible views over the Tuscan countryside. Landlady Elizabeth is a delight and extremely helpful. Pool was great. Location is somewhat remote but suited us as we used as a base to travel the Tuscan sites. Access road was hard on the car, but fortunately ours was a rental. We would definitely go back.

Amazing Property with an Incredible Infinity Pool

  • 5 of 5

Magnificently renovated property split into three units in the main house and an additional guest house. My family stayed in the main house on the first floor. We had an amazing view of Tuscany from our back patio and enjoyed many beautiful sunsets. The house was fully stacked with everything one may wish for (food excluding) and very well decorated. We enjoyed swimming in the infinity pool, meeting and hanging out with our neighbors, and watching many movies which the owner provided to us. We also enjoyed exploring the surrounding towns of Tuscany. Overall an experience we will never forget. Amazing place, definitely worth the visit! PS bring bug spray.

Des vacances inoubliable!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour à Monte Casone.

Quoi de mieux que de découvrir la Toscane pour la 1er fois en allant là bas.

L'endroit est superbe et très bien entretenu. Il y fait très calme.

La vue depuis la piscine et la terasse est a couper le souffle.

L'accueil des propriétaires a été un véritable plus pour nous. Ils ont pu nous donner de bon conseille pour découvrir au mieux la Toscane.

C'est sur nous retournerons un jour là bas!

The village of Ghizzano is only three kilometres from the estate. There, you will find a bakery and very typical grocery store / bar.

The closest supermarkets are 15 minutes away, San Gimignano and Volterra are 30 minutes away, Pisa is 40 minutes away, Florence and Lucca are 60 minutes away and Sienna is 90 minutes away.

Gastronomes and lovers of truffles will be delighted to discover or rediscover the pleasures of Tuscan cuisine. There are numerous restaurants in the region and generally they serve excellent food.


In addition to the towns of major historic interest such as Florence, Sienna or Lucca you can discover such pearls of the Tuscan heritage as San Gimignano or Volterra. And to relax a little, there is nothing better than a game of golf in the neighbouring hillsides or a relaxing massage in the thermal baths of Casciana!
