"FREE INTERNET WIFI" Set in the Umbrian countryside, close to Tuscany, between Città della Pieve (10 km) and Castiglion del Lago (12 km) il Casale alle Vie Bianche is a typical farmhouse built in 1860. The interior is very well furnished and cosy with 'terracotta' floors and exposed beam ceiling. Ground floor: lounge and dining room with fireplace, kitchen, 1 bathroom. First floor: 5 bedrooms (3 double, 1 triple, 1 single with fireplace), lounge with fireplace, 2 bathrooms. The house is situated in a farming estate of 35 hectares of wood and olive groves where you can have lovely walks in an unspoilt and enchanting nature. The garden is completely fenced and there are kids outdoor games (swing and see-saw). In front of the main building there is a porch with a large dining table and an original wood burning oven (great for pizza!). The biological farm produces extra virgin olive oil and offers its guests not polluting detergents and solar panels for hot water. Occasionally the owners, who live in Rome, stay for a few days in a small house, with independent access, close to the villa. You will have the property completely to yourself (the sporadic visit of the owners will be barely noticed).

Enchanting, picturesque house in Tuscany
My parents, my husband, and 4 kids stayed here for three nights and absolutely loved it. It is about 4 min off the main road down a gravel path with a private gate. The house has so much character: wooden beams, farmhouse table, outdoor sitting areas, old farm equipment...lots of fun exploring the grounds and inside the house. It is a big house and the grounds and pool were great fun for the kids. One bedroom down with bath, 5 maybe 6 upstairs and 2 bath, clean sheets and towels, close to Moiano and Chiusi. We made day trips to wine country. The owner was very responsive and his friends made getting to and leaving the house easy. A lovely, unforgettable stay for all 8 of us! Wonderful memories we will cherish.
Fantastic gem nicely situated in Central Italy (Le Vie Bianche)
Wonderful, wonderful place to spend time. We were not quite sure what to expect when we booked this vacation to central Italy in the Region of Umbria. We had a total of 21 absolutely glorious days here with a number of family and friends joining us for periods throughout this time. Vacation started with just my wife and I for the 1st couple days which we really enjoyed giving us some time to get the lay of the land. After the we averaged 8-10 people ranging from some nights with 5 to as many as 12. The house and surrounding grounds could handle it with ease. The pool was enjoyed every day and worked really well for cooling down a bit on some of the warmer days. It had a shallow section which worked perfect for our 2-1/2 yr old granddaughter who joined us for the later part of the stay. We really enjoyed our morning walks to the top of a local hill, helping us get some great exercise. Views around this countryside are as good as any we saw in nearby Tuscany. This property is within a couple kms of nearest town but was very quite and peaceful.
The house itself was laid out great with a nice master bedroom, bathroom and sitting room on the main floor. The rest of the bedrooms were all upstairs and they worked great for our guests and family. One of the best things was all the outside space with tables and areas set up on all sides to be able to enjoy different views and ambiance throughout the day and evenings. The pizza oven outside was a real treat and highlight of many of the evenings. We enjoyed many a late night playing cards and Dominos. We certainly lived more outside then in during these 3 weeks as our weather was picture perfect the entire trip.
Our favorite restaurant in the nearby town of Pacino (5 kms) was Locanda Manfredi. Great Italian fare, absolutely wonderful staff and service. We did mainly day travels to both Tuscan and Umbiran wineries from the place which are very douable, some as close as 20 min away. Nearby highlights included multiple medieval towns such as Citta della Pieve and Volterra with our favorite being one being Monltepulciano. Overnight trips included Florence (>2 hrs away) and Venice 3-1/2 hr drive.
Many thanks go to Raffaella and her team, Massimo, Mario, and her grandson. They all did a great job to make our stay very special.
Dear Bill thanks a lot for your wonderful words! I am really proud you enjoyed so much your stay and that you appreciate so much the interiors and the exteriors as well as our surroundings!
A special thanks from our pizza oven, I could say "old but gold" ... built in 1864 and still works very well!
Don't miss to come back and visit us in an other occasion, spring and autumn are wonderful.
Thank you very also form Mario and family, we are all very happy to have helped ou spend a nice vacation.
See you soon
"We had a WONDERFUL stay ...
"We had a WONDERFUL stay at Le Vie Bianche! For our family with 2 young children it was perfect, and the owner could not have been more accommodating. I hesitate to write about it because I don''t want anyone to discover this true gem in the Umbrian countryside! The house is furnished beautifully with many antiques but has a very homey feel at the same time. The gardener (who we did not see very often but who cleaned the pool every couple of days and tended to the large property) and the man who manages this property in the owner''s absence, were both so kind and helpful! The location is blissfully isolated and serene, though is only 4 KM from the nearest town, and ideally situated to see both Tucany and Umbria. There are so many wonderful places to discover, all within a very beautiful drive from the house, and the nearest train station at Chiusi Scalo takes you pretty much anywhere easily!...And you could spend days just exploring the beautiful property alone! A note: the house is an old stone farm house, nicely restored, but is a bit dark even during the day; so we spent most of our time outside enjoying the environs. The house was nice and cool (we were there for almost all of May) so cool that we lit the fire place on several occasions. This was great! We also used space heaters provided on chilly nights and this worked perfectly. Our children (ages 2 and 4) LOVED exploring every nook and cranny both inside and out. We loved the fact that most all rooms had doors (as well as top of stairs) that could be closed for safety. This house is large and spacious and we had more than enough room. It is so beautiful here, beautiful beyond words, and we are anxious to return! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"
Un contesto ideale per vivere la magia del Natale
Quest'anno c'eravamo proprio tutti, la famiglia al gran completo. Cercavamo un posto accogliente, familiare, tranquillo per tutti noi e per i due cani, anche loro della famiglia...lo abbiamo trovato in questo splendido casale. Il tempo di scaricare i bagagli, sistemare le proviste nel frigo (capiente), addobbare il nostro albero di Natale e accendere il fuoco ed ecco la sensazione meravigliosa di sentirsi a casa. Completa di tutto quello che può servire per un gruppo anche numeroso (eravamo in 10), stoviglie, pentole, padelle, una cucina perfettamente attrezzata, una bella macchina del gas con 5 fuochi e un forno ventilato dove abbiamo cucinato dei fantastici arrosti...la casa calda con i radiatori distribuiti in abbondanza in tutti gli ambienti. Un bellissimo camino d'epoca perfettamente funzionante. Letti comodi, biancheria pulitissima, ambienti perfettamente sistemati. All'arrivo ci ha accolti Nicola, un simpatico ragazzo che ci dato alcune informazioni pratiche riguardanti la casa, alla partenza lo abbiamo incontrato nuovamente con la sua mamma, anche lei persona gioviale. La casa ti accoglie con ospitalità e gentilezza e noi tutti abbiamo goduto di questa accoglienza. Un cesto con le dolcezze natalizie era pronto per farci sentire i benvenuti e noi abbiamo gradito e abbiamo gustato l'ottimo olio prodotto dai frutti del casale. Grazie Raffaella, non ci siamo incontrate ma la casa ci ha raccontato molto della bella persona che lei deve essere...sicuramente torneremo per vivere ancora delle belle sensazioni. Gisella
Gentilissima Gisella, sono davvero felice che si sia trovata come "a casa". D'altra parte la nostra è una casa di famiglia, che ha accolto anche noi per tanti anni per le feste, è una casa con un grande passato, un magnifico presente, e senz'altro un grandissimo futuro. E nel futuro vi aspettiamo! Sono certa che anche i vostri cani si siano trovati bene, è un luogo dove hanno vissuto generazioni di meraviglie a quattro zampe! a presto e grazie per le bellissime parole
Posto stupendo, pace assoluta, riposo garantito, natura esplosiva, cani liberi e felici, casa meravigliosa, sembra un set cinematografico, proprietaria gentilissima e accogliente. Grazie, ci voleva proprio!
Il casale " incantato "
Che voglia di ritornare tutte le volte che ripartiamo !!!
Ideale per chi cerca un luogo meraviglioso, tranquillo con tutti i comfort anche per i nostri amici a quattro zampe.
Il casale rievoca sensazioni ed emozioni di altri tempi. La natura che lo circonda con i suoi profumi e colori rendono questo posto magico e prezioso !!!
Un grazie di cuore a Raffaella, la proprietaria del casale, per la sua accoglienza e gentilezza!!!!
A presto Anna Simona Lenticchia e Viola
