Beautiful, independent self-catering apartments in ancient Tuscan farmhouse with private swimming pool.
The house is on a 30 acres property on the slopes of Pratomagno mountain, between Florence and Arezzo (35 km from Florence, 25 from Arezzo, 50 km from Siena on easy roads), with a really stunning sight on the whole Valdarno valley and the Chianti hills. It is surrounded by olive trees (we do our own high-quality organic olive oil) and typical vineyards. The farmhouse dates back to the 17th century, it had an extensive restoration work a few years ago in a very refined style and trying to maintain as much as possible of the original building. The garden where the swimming pool is is immersed in the silent, relaxing surroundings of the countryside.
We have six apartments for rent, with one or two bedrooms each, sleeping up to 20 persons total. The apartments are rented separately for couples and families, or altogether for groups!
PRICES SHOWN ARE FOR 1 APT WITH 1 BEDROOM, 2 PERSONS

The villa initially belonged to the 'gonfaloniere' (the ancient mayor) of Loro Ciuffenna; then was run by farmers that made a living with their own production of olive oil and wine. The farmhouse was later owned by the Antinori family, and by the S.Maria nuns. On an original stone in the walls of the main building is carved the date '1774', when the farmhouse became part of Loro Ciuffenna. The actual owner's intention was to restore the villa maintaining as much as possible of the original Tuscany architecture: in all the apartments you will find terracotta floors and ceilings with exposed wooden beams.
The whole property (Podere Casarotta farmhouse together with the Conca d'Oro farm) covers approximately 30 acres, mostly planted with olive groves that surround the farmhouse. The place was called from long ago the 'Conca d'Oro' ('the Golden Basin') for its climate, particularly pleasant to people and beneficial to olive oil production. We still produce on the farm our high-quality, organic, tuscan extra-virgin olive oil!
Podere Casarotta farmhouse, because of its privileged position in the very heart of Tuscany (and just 4km from the nearest town, Castelfranco di Sopra) offers a perfect balance in between rest & relaxation and wandering around: the apartments of our villa will be your luxurious and comfortable starting point for visiting Tuscany! Whatever you are looking for: art, history, culture, parks and nature, wine and food routes, or just relax by the swimming pool in the silence of the Tuscany countryside, you will find them all at hand!
We stayed here for a week after having been travelling around Italy. Beautiful place, lovely surroundings and very peaceful. Simone was extremely helpful, and the gardener was lovely. Everything was clean and we'll maintained and the views were exceptional! Top tip: Ask Simone to prepare for you one of their home cooked meals. WOW! It was the best meal we had in the whole trip! This was a perfect tuscan escape for families and couples and we would recommend it to anyone, I would rate it 10 if I could!
