una meravigliosa pasqua

  • 5 of 5

abbiamo soggiornato presso il casale ulivo per soli tre giorni (causa lavoro) ma lo straordinario fascino del casale ulivo ti colpisce a prima vista! l'ampio giardino che circonda la struttura è curatissimo e ti da subito il senso della vita sana e genuina che si vive da queste parti. la piscina ben collocata è bella grande e fornita di tutte le attrezzature necessarie compreso una zona barbecue.

abbiamo trovato il casale pulitissimo, gli spazi sono veramente grandi e forniti di ogni comfort, ci si muove benissimo.

è il posto ideale per trascorrere una vacanza in compagnia sia di adulti che di bambini.

un ringraziamento particolare va ad elisa e alla sua famiglia per la loro gentilezza ,disponibilità e cordialità.

torneremo sicuramente al più presto.

ciao a tutti, Paola.

Un perfetto weekend tra le colline toscane

  • 5 of 5

Il casale è stupendo. Eravamo in 9 e ci siamo trovati benissimo. Un perfetto mix tra antico e moderno. La casa è spaziosa sia all'interno che all'esterno. Abbiamo fatto un barbeque e ci siamo gustati la veranda guardando le colline toscane. I proprietari sono stati gentilissimi e pieni di buoni consigli su come passare delle belle giornate nei dintorni.

Incantevole Casale Ulivo

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato nel giugno 2012 per 10 giorni nell'incatevole Casale Ulivo in compagnia di 10 amici.

La descrizione contenuta nell'inserzione rispecchiava alla perfezione la reale meraviglia di questo Casale, della posizione in cui è situato e dei servizi che vengono offerti dalla proprietà.

Il Casale è di una bellezza rara per la posizione che occupa nella splendida Val di Chiana e per come è curato nei minimi particolari: dagli interni spaziosi, puliti, accoglienti e arredati di tutto, fino all'elegante giardino esterno impreziosito da un fantastico gazebo in pietra e mattoni e da una grande, bella e attrezzata piscina posta in posizione panoramica da togliere il respiro! La proprietà è in una zona di esclusiva calma e riservatezza e posizonato in tal modo da poter godere pienamente le magnifiche giornate di sole che la campagna toscana offre durante la primavera, l'estate e l'autunno.

La vicinanza ai maggiori luoghi di interesse della zona ( da Arezzo a Cortona

a Lucignano, Gargonza, Montepulciano fino a Firenze e Roma) lo rendono una tappa imprescindibile per chi abbia voglia di unire una splendida vacanza di relax e vita bucolica al piacere di scoprire le meraviglie che questa zona d'Italia offre in ogni suo minimo angolo...senza dimenticare le continue iniziative quali sagre, palii e ristoranti osterie e trattorie che rendono il soggiorno ancor più gradevole.

Nota particolare per cui scegliere questa dimora va sicuramente fatta per la Famiglia proprietaria del casale da cui viene personalmente gestito...la loro gentilezza, competenza, accoglienza, discrezione, cortesia e simpatia sono virtù rare e uniche, e rendono la permanenza nel Casale Ulivo un'esperienza da dover assolutamente vivere e condividere con amici e famiglia.

Owner's Response: Grazie Stefano, a leggere la tua recensione ci siamo commossi un po' tutti... Il babbo in particolar modo... Belle e care parole che ci sacaldano il cuore e ci riempiono di gioia, che ci spronano ad andare avanti su questa strada. La fortuna è anche la nostra di aver incontrato delle persone meravigliose come voi... sempre più rare, oggi come oggi, ahimé! Grazie, grazie, grazie. ps: non vediamo l'ora di rivedervi !!!

La Toscane de carte postale ça existe

  • 5 of 5

Nous nous sommes réunis à 11 personnes au printemps 2012 au Casale Ulivo pour passer un moment entre amis et il est absolument impossible d'etre deçu par le choix de ce lieu de villégiature. L'intérieur est trés spacieux, trés confortable et extremement fonctionnel. Que dire de l'extérieur : à couper le souffle.
