Overview

About the property

Villa Casanova is a typical Tuscan homestead from the early 1800's located in the unmistakable Chianti Classico countryside a short distance from the town of Castelnuovo Berardenga, on the Via Chiantigiana – a rural route that runs from start to finish through the renowned vine-growing and wine making region.

The farmhouse, with its stone facade offering 9 bedrooms and 10 baths, is set in vineyards and olive groves and looks out over a breathtaking panorama.

The interiors are typical of Tuscan rural architecture, with floors in handmade Florentine red brick and exposed-beam ceilings.

At Villa Casanova, the elegance of tradition is reinvented to coexist with such modern luxuries as the pool and the private well being suite.

Each of the tastefully-appointed guest rooms has a private bath, satellite TV, minibar, air-conditioning, and wireless Internet. Safe and phone service. Ample parking.

Villa Casanova consists of two buildings: the main house, where the guest rooms are located, and a second, facing building furnished and organized as a large veranda dining area for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The location, close to such important cities of art as Siena, Florence, and Perugia, makes it the ideal accommodation for visitors who come to Italy for cultural tourism.

Distances: 100 m bus stop for Siena, 800m Villa a Sesta (restaurant and bar), 10 km Castelnuovo Berardenga, 12 km Gaiole in Chianti, 20 km Siena, 40 km Arezzo, 70 km Florence.

The nearest ski resort is 90 km in the Monte Amiata.

Golf: For golf enthusiasts, a Golf Club in the Siena area with an 18-hole course, just 40 km from Villa Casanova. The club offers individual and group lessons under the supervision of a n Italian Golf Federation pro.

At guests' disposal:Private swimming pool (5x12 mt, depth 1.20-2.50 mt open from first of May to end of October), with mini bar, situated inside the garden and surrounded by olive trees is at the guests' disposal. Baby-bed and high chair free of charge. Telephone. Barbeque.

Outside there is a large swimming pool, a terrace with sun beds and comfortable chairs by "EMU". Guests have the opportunity to use for their meals the terrace in front of the veranda, overlooking an unique view. A dip in our capacious pool is a great way to cool down after sunbathing, a walk, or a day in one of Tuscany’s cities of art!

Swimming, Jacuzzi tubs, privacy, and absolute quiet. Nothing more – or less. For jogging enthusiasts, a run in the Tuscan countryside, where the panorama changes constantly and spectacular views await around every turn, is an experience not soon forgotten.

Extra Services

BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER

On request we offer to our guests the opportunity to book the breakfast, lunch and dinner with a private "mama" chef.

COOKING CLASS WITH "MAMA"

The cooking school of our Massaie, where true Italian culinary tradition is the order of the day, is a tribute to Tuscan cooking and its secrets as well as the history of a land which, with its recipes, has transformed its wealth of gastronomic treasures into tasty dishes with international reputations.

Our Tuscan Cooking Lessons reflect this tradition, offering our guests an authentic overview of local culture in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. The Massaie, the Relais’ exceptional cooks, generally prepare seasonal recipes, using fresh local products whenever possible.

The cooking courses vary as to duration and level of culinary expertise. The big kitchen-classroom is just what’s needed for a hands-on approach to learning.

We take care of the table settings, another “secret recipe” for a successful banquet. Key “ingredients”: faultless organization and the flowers of our gardens, fields, and woodlands.

A cooking lesson is just for the current renters of the villa, no extra people!

TOURS

Our concierge service will be happy to provide you with any information you may need for your excursions in Tuscany and other regions of Italy.

Our itineraries will take you to some of Tuscany’s most interesting locations, all within easy reach of Villa Casanova. On request, van and private guide.

We recommend using private car or van hire with or without a driver.

Villa Casanova has large spaces to park cars.

The villa and staff made this Tuscan vacation. The location, service and food all amazing. Miley's, Tuscan mama, pizza, pasta making, daily breakfasts and Tuscan BBQ perfect. There was a couple little restaurants and winery nearby delicious and convenient. We had 14 people, adults and children. Hope to come back and visit this wonderful place. Grazie!

Amazing. First comment from my kids when we arrived, I can't believe you rented an entire hotel for us. Absolutely beautiful and perfect for a family with kids. Everyone bent over backwards to make sure we had a great vacation. The chefs (called mamas ) made delicious Tuscan delights. The location was centrally located near sienna. We will definitely be back

The villa was luxurious, clean and modern. There were 10 adults and 4 children in our group. The villa very comfortably accommodated all of us.

You will need to rent a car. The villages are close but not walking distance.

Review for stay from 21 July 2012 to 28 July 2012

  • 5 of 5

Had a very memorable family holiday at Villa Casanova in Jul 2012; there were 13 of us with 4 children under 6yrs.

Location: Was stunning with the villa sitting in the middle of the vineyard and looking over lush greenery. The villa was very accessible with a rented car and we took several day trips to San Gimigano, Siena etc

Villa: Was very clean, comfortable and very importantly had air conditioning.

Catering: As we were a big group, we did have dinners arranged with the local mama and the food and wine was the highlight of the trip. We also had a pizza cooking lesson one evening and the kids really enjoyed the session.

Milena and team: We really appreciated Milena and her team's warm hospitality and her easy demeanour meant that we felt like we were with friends. She has an excellent team and we would definitely consider a repeat visit in the coming summers.
