About the property

New building and first occupancy 2015

Property of Casa Nova

The property of Casa Nova at the entrance of the medivial village of Chianni has been fully restored in 2014/2015. It consits of the main house Casa Nova Grande with 2 bedrooms, a smaller house Casa Nova Piccola with 1 bedroom and a convertible sofa which allows 2 more people to sleep and a spacious garden with a pool and sufficient parking space.

Both houses can only be booked by one party to ensure privacy. The rental fee is valid for the main house Casa Nova Grande. In case of need Casa Nova Piccola (offering 1 2-person-bedroom and a sleeping couch) can be booked additionally for a flat fee of 350,- € week (e.g. grand parents or elder kids).

Casa Nova GRANDE

The building has a total area of 95 square meters. A flight of stairs leads to a bright living area also containing a kitchen and dining area: typical for Tuscany. A modern furnished terrace can be entered through a leaf door and surprises with a spectacular 200 year old olive tree. Heavy beams characterise the high ceiling and lend the house a rustic impression. Behind the living area is the modern master bedroom (bed Queen size) with shower en-suite.

A second bedroom (bed Queen size) can be found in the first floor also with a shower en-suite as well as a little studio with a view over to Volterra.

Both houses are gently furnished in the style of a Tuscan country home. Some antiquities from the 18. and 19. cent. provide a lasting impression. The tastefully restored lion couch is of special beauty as well as the elegant carving of the book case doors. The extendible dining table invites up to 8 people to a sumptuous meal.

When the curtains of the big panorama window slowly slide to both sides the view to the medieval Castello provides a particular moment.

Equipment: washing machine, dish washer, big fridge with big freezer, stove, water boiler, Nespresso coffee machine and all kitchen facilities. The house provides its guests a satellite-TV with DVD, air conditioning in all the rooms and WiFi.


This small house with a size of 31 square meters lies opposite of the flight of stairs. The entrance is found in the pergola and leads to a small living room with kitchenette and a small dining place. Adjacent is a master bedroom (bed Queen size) with shower en-suite. The pergola offers a second table and BBQ.

Casa Nova Piccola - in the the same Tuscan country home style as Casa Nova Grande - is charmingly decorated and offers an ideal retreat for further guests.

WiFi, satellite-TV and air conditioning is also available here.


Both houses lie in the upper part of the garden and are connected to each other by a decorative wall with a beautiful lit statue. A cosy lounge invites to a shady afternoon. A mulberry tree stands near by the small house and borders to a turfed ground with olive trees. The terrace covered in Tuscan natural stone is generous and offers sunlight all day long. It reaches down to the pool (4,5 x 9 square meters) with its sun beds and a family lounge. The car park on white gravel supplies room for at least 4 cars and is surrounded by olive trees. The entire property is fully fenced in and decorated with Mediterranean plants. The wide gate opens by remote control. At night the pool and the garden area are romantically lit and offer a charming view to the illuminated Castello.

Lovely villa, perfectly situated for discovering Tuscany and fabulous to relax by the pool.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great two week stay, relaxing by the pool and eating at the many local restaurants which you can walk to. Chianni is perfectly situated for visiting all the main Tuscan holiday spots and is itself a delightful hilltop town - the tour of Chianni is a must on a Monday morning! All our needs were catered for and I can't think of a better place to recharge your batteries.

Excellent property and service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in July 2017. The property had been immaculately cleaned before our arrival,including the pool. We were received one hour early, and got a very friendly and infomative welcome, with prepared response to all our questions sendt by mail before arriving.

The rest of the week passed by without any events related to the property worth mentioning. A power outage by the power company of a few hours can hardly be blamed on the landlord. All our requests were handled immediately by the local caretaker.

We are 3 couples that has spent som our vacation together several places in Europe. This property gets our highest score. Spacious room and bathrooms, well equipped, and a with large and very fresh pool.

The only issue to point a finger at was the somewhat slow wireless internet connection. This might be due to the stone walls in the building. But good enough for vacation purposes.

Einfach ein Traum.

  • 5 of 5

Diese Anlage hat einfach Klasse. Luxus pur in combination mit eine typisch Toscanische Atmosphere. In der Nähe von allen Sehenswürdigkeiten aber Ruhe vor Ort ist garantiert. Keine Wünsche bleiben offen. Absolut zu empfehlen!! Madeleine und René aus Holland.

The property with its 2 buildings Casa Nova Grande and Casa Nova Piccola lies below the village of Chianni in the middle of the Pisanian hills and offers a wide view into the Tuscan plain. The famous Tuscan Spa Town - Casciana Terme - is located in the near neighbourhood. Pisa can be reached via fast road in around 40 minutes time, while getting to Florence would take double the time. The famous palaces Volterra and San Gimignano are closer by (30 minutes) - half the distance to Siena.

There is a beautiful view from the house to medivial village of Chianni (12. cent.). You will find a seldomly used sportsground on one side of the property.
