Wonderful place for my large family!

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from a one week stay with my large extended family of 30 and we had a wonderful time! The villa was great and had plenty of space for all of us with a large kitchen where we could all eat together! The owner Monica was very helpful with setting up excursions to Florence, the zoo and a beautiful vineyard and airport transfers etc. she also greeted us with a cake on our arrival, cooked us a wonderful dinner mid week and surprised my daughter with a very tasty, authentic Italian cake on her 4th birthday that we celebrated while on vacation!

Painting and drawing in Tusany

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of fourteen art students who stayed at Villa Casalino May 13 to May 20.

The Villa was fantastic, clean , well equipped, nicely furnished and with a lot of space for us all.

Our host Monica was more than fantastic and so was her brother. Monica fixed all our arrangements for us such as transfers, excursions and lunches. They even rented a car for our shopping which was waiting for us at our arrival at the villa and which they returned to the car rental when we left.( Ths is more than perfect service ) When we arrived two lovely pasta dishes and a big lovely cake waited for us. It made us feel more than welcome.

We had a perfect stay at a perfect place and a perfect host who has a wonderful and helpful brother. We had a few in our group with some walking difficulties and before we knew it he fixed racks in the stairway so they could easily get up to our dining-room.

We were all very satisfied with our stay and can highly recommend Villa Casalino.

Best regards,

Berit Jenshagen Paloheimo

Fantastic and beyond any expectation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casalino last october with a group of 30 art students, we arrived late at nigh and Monica was there to check us in and make sure everything was ok, we had a very warm welcome, and the heating was on during the day before our arrival so it was very nice and coszy! The Rooms and the batrooms were extremely tidy and clean, there was plenty of Room for everybody and was pefect for our group. But Monica and her family went the extra mile when they prepared for us dinner with Homemade Lasgna and Cake that everybody loved (Inclduing a vegetarian one!). The Location is ideal to explore Tuscany and is alot more authentic and and quiet than let's say areas around florence or siena who are too much like in the movies. The kids loved it, we had great walks outdoors, they even spoke with the locals who where very happy to have us there with all this youth. We had a pallet with all art stuff being delivered before our arrival and that worked out very well as Monica coordinated all that as well. What else to say I wish to keep the place secret for us only and we will definitely go back every year and hopefully more then once a year!

Thank you again!

The property is fantastic value for money and has all the necessary ameneties to host a large group. Thanks to Monica and family for going the extra mile and making the birthday one to remember!

Happy Holidays in Casalino

  • 4 of 5

Great place for larger parties of family or friends. Spacious accommodation, well supported by both Monica and Leonardo, thanks for the lovely meals that were cooked for us all, at no extra charge! Great pool and outside space. If wanted complete peace and quiet please be aware that the convent bells from across the square ring from 7am until well into the evening! If you are shy about bathing please also consider that the pool is also overlooked by a block of flats. That being said we all had a great two weeks!
