About the property

10 Bedrooms, 15.0 Bathrooms, 20 Sleeps

Once a distinguished old Tuscan farmhouse, Cascina villa has been completely restored to its original splendor. This superb property offers the most elegant and luxurious country-style accommodations. The impressive hilltop location offers spectacular, sweeping 360 degree views that stretch literally for miles across the estate to the neighboring towns and villages.

Cascinas views from the gardens and pool over the countryside are simply magnificent. Outside features include a mosaic-tiled infinity swimming pool with hydro massage area and an old-stone, paved solarium furnished with large loungers for soaking up the sun. Adjacent to the pool there is a lovely loggia, superb for parties and family gatherings! The loggia is equipped for dining with cushioned sofas and chairs and a fantastic barbeque area. Indoors, you will find satellite TV, DVD player, stereo and Wi-Fi access.

Sunny and bright, yet airy and cool, Cascina is the ideal place for special events. The villa features southerly facing sitting rooms with typical Tuscan brick arches, a grand master fireplace lounge and dining areas which open to paved terraces through a facade of French windows. The large main villa kitchen with fabulous central island is equipped with high-tech Italian fixtures and fittings. Its state-of-the-art equipment is perfect for chefs, gourmands and for hands-on cooking classes and demonstrations.

A veritable Italian hamlet, the seventeen exceptional bedrooms at Cascina accommodate up to twenty-nine fortunate guests. Fifteen of these include en-suite bathrooms. The lovely bedrooms are decorated in rich Tuscan country style with coordinating natural fabrics, all newly fitted with cool white porcelain and spacious showers. Cascina is also fully air conditioned for ultimate comfort. The four poolside suites are all wheelchair accessible, so Cascina also makes a great bet for multigenerational families and diverse groups.

Nearby, you can discover the small walled medieval city of San Gimignano, known for its historical architecture in buildings such as the Collegiate Church and Museo Civico. In San Gimignano, you will also discover fine cuisine and quaint handicrafts. Or head to the magical and mysterious city of Volterra for more culture, history and art. The more active among your entourage can also go horseback riding, play tennis or golf, all within minutes of this exquisite Tuscan villa.

San Gimignano Atop one of the hills that dominate the Elsa Valley is the ancient medieval city of San Gimignano, which still preserves its roots and boasts beautiful works of art. Highlights which must be seen are the Collegiate Church and Museo Civico. The Collegiate Church, one of the most famous in the world, contains frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli and Ghirlandaio, while the Museo Civico has a renowned collection of apothecary jars from the Spezieria di Santa Fina. Besides its famous Vernaccia wine, San Gimignano's many shops offer the products of typical Tuscan artisans, marked by the skill and tradition handed down from father to son. Here you can enjoy everything from boar sausages to cheeses, from terracotta to hand-made pottery to leather goods.

Volterra The magical and mysterious city of Volterra has its roots in three thousand years of history. In this unique, artistic city, you can find evidence and traces of every historical period. Besides being a city of museums, Volterra is rich in natural beauty. There are organized excursions on foot, on horseback or by bicycle along sign-posted itineraries.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

After a few hiccups with electricity problems on night 1, hot water missing on day 1 in one suite and a plumbing leak in another, we had a great week. The house is lovely, quiet, and welcoming. Rooms were comfortable. The local staff was very responsive to our difficulties and took care of things as soon as we called. Danielle even stopped by to settle final bill, saving me the trouble of going to the office. Train to Florence was nearby and very easy to use We cooked our own meals - part of the adventure - and everyone had a great time sorting out Italian grocery stores. Kitchen functioned very well for cooking for a larger group. Pool was a little chilly but we still had lots of swimmers. All in all it was the special week I had dreamed of. Now we are all discussing where we should go next....

We had a fabulous , spectacular vacation. Everyone was relaxed and happy. The villa was a great accomodation for our group size, the pool was awesome, the views beautiful. The villa mgr was very helpful in organizing our 25th anniversary party that was a night to remember under the stars! Small towns were great. You can not bike from the villa !

  • 5 of 5

Cascina was just lovely sitting on the hilltop overlooking the Italian countryside. The villa was well maintained and the pool and Al Fresco dining was great !!!! We were glad to have an air conditioned villa and we had a few minor problems with the a/c and bathrooms BUT the staff was readily availble to come out and fix any issues we had. We all loved the place and would recommend it to our friends and family. The Italian chef came out to fix us dinner on the Wed, night and it was great...he did a great job and the food was delicious and very authentic italian. The grounds were lovely and we enjoyed our early mornings and late afternoons by the pool area drinking coffee/wine and eating cheese and breads. I was extremley satisfied with the villa - as we were a bit nervous on the initial way up - wondering if the pictures online maybe looked better than what the place really was in person...but I can say now that the pictures did not do it justice !!! Thanks !

Our trip was perfect! We loved our villa (some missed their american soft beds and big fluffy pillows) but that is about all I can say negative. From the minute I contacted Laura, and then Pascal, the trip was awesome. I can't wait to rent through you all again!!!
