Lovely stay at Casanuova
My family and I enjoyed our stay at Casanuova, the farmhouse is large and spacious and suited 6 adults and 3 children very well. Thankfully there was a stair gate at the top of the steep stone steps up to the living quarters and most of the bedrooms otherwise it would have been a nightmare! The garden is large too although I would have liked the grass to have been cut for our stay. The beaches nearby were lovey. Overall it was a great holiday in a great old farmhouse with lots of character
The perfect place for a vacation with friends!
We had a wonderful stay at Casanuova. The description and pictures of the house describe the accommodation very well. The house is big and the Outside area is very nice, we really enjoyed the barbecue area. Everything you need, you can find in the house. Also Alessio has been very helpful in any way and the included cleaning service has been very convenient. Casanuova is the perfect place for a vacation with a big group of friends!"
Beautiful farmhouse, quiet, great for families!
Casanuova is a beautiful old rustico close to a very nice beach (~ 1.5 km). Its charming character and its nice location gave us a unique vacation experience. The kids loved to run through the huge, sunny garden with old, high pines and palm trees. Not everything is perfect (the bath rooms are fairly old and some beds are a bit narrow), but everything is functionally OK. And the landlord was always very helpful to fix broken things very quickly.
We particularly enjoyed the daily cleaning service provided by very friendly and motivated staff.
Nonetheless, tourists should be prepared to find a fairly secluded house close-to-nature; one might see a small lizard wandering down the hallway and it's pretty dark outside at night time.
Quiet place in the middle of the nature
We have spent wonderful 2 weeks in Casanuova in June. The house is big enough to host up to 10-12 people with dedicated bedrooms for everyone.
At first the impression was somehow mixed up as we were the first guests to come to the house after a long break. The air in the house was a bit stuffy but after we have opened all windows it was fresh and light again. The house is very airy in fact as it has windows on all 4 sides of the building.
The other thing we liked a lot is the interior style, terracotta floors. However, there is some space for improvement. Some parts of the furniture is really broken and this should be fixed somehow to be pleasing to the eye again (e.g. sideboard doors in the kitchen). Some of the wardrobes were missing door handles making it tricky to open the dense wooden doors.
We would also recommend to consider renovating bed in a small room (1 single bed on the top floor) and renovating the bed in the bedroom on the ground floor as they are too high and not very comfy.
Besides of that the overall impression was very pleasant.
Daily maid service was quite a surprise for us as it was the first time such kind of service was offered as a part of the package. We have tried to refuse but the owner had insisted :)
First several days it was not very comfortable as the cleaning ladies were coming at 8am every morning while we were still trying to catch last pieces of night dreams :) Later we have agreed with the owner to shift the service hours closer to the daytime and this has sorted things out. At the end we were very happy with the service provided, especially at the days when our dishwasher went accidentally out of service (ladies were cleaning/washing everything by their own).
The house is located on a huge private piece of land so you can be sure that there will be nobody jogging around. Beach is only ~1500 meters away from the house and you can either take a walk through the private path (~20 minutes) or drive a car using a private shortcut.
Alessio's daughter had a birthday during our stay and it was very nice to be invited to the party among Alessio's family friends. We've spent a wonderful day at the beach party.
Alessio was always open to the questions and helped a lot with some advice on the local area. Do not miss the guest book in the property - it has many nice tips to do and visit in the area.
One of our favorites was the walking path from Torre Nuova to Baratti beach.
I provided Casanuova with a new dishwasher
Wonderful place to stay!
My family and I stayed here several years ago and couldn't have been happier with our arrangements. The Villa was in wonderful condition and Theresa was so wonderful and very tidy. There were 6 adults and 4 children, and we all fit very comfortably.
The Villa was close to the beach and surrounded by a beautiful countryside.
I am hoping that we will be able to go back to San Vincenzo and stay here again.
Großes Bauernhaus mit tollem Garten
Sehr geräumiges Haus mit viel Platz und riesigem, schönem Garten. Der Vermieter ist nett und zuvorkommend. Der Strand ist in etwa 15-20 Minuten zu erreichen (privater Weg zum Strand trifft es besser). Ausstattung der Küche ist sehr gut.
Casanuova is 1KM from sea and 3 Km away from a beatifull Bay, famous for its Etruscan archaeological site and magnificent beach. You will find scuba-diving and sailing schools, boat rentals and good fish restaurants. Populonia, an Etruscan/medieval town overlooking the bay , commands a breathtaking view of the area. You may discover also lovely medieval towns (Castagneto Carducci, Bolgheri, Suvereto, Campiglia) on the surrounding hilltops. Further away you may visit the unique medieval towns of Massa Marittima and Volterra. It's imperative to take a ferryboat from Piombino to the Elba Island. In the nearby San Vincenzo you find shops, bars, restaurants, discos and a marina. In the nearby Venturina you may enjoy the pleasure of relaxing in a spa and bathing in thermal pools,no matter what season. Casanuova is strategically positioned for daily trips to the artistically most important cities of Italy, such as Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca
