Siena Area House Rental Photos and Description


Il Casale di Villore is an ochre stone farmhouse, medieval in origin, situated in the heart of the Tuscan countryside and enjoys a hilltop position from which the pastoral beauty of the countryside is in full view. After painstaking renovations, Villore’s six apartments are now available for holiday rental, each named after a different type of grape in honor of the region’s wine culture. We invite you to pass your holiday immersed in the rhythm and beauty of the Tuscan landscape. All of the apartments are furnished with antiques and have been decorated by the owner himself who has charmingly combined traditional Tuscan elements with the spaciousness, light and airiness that hallmark modern design.

Hiking, walking and bicycle trails radiate from Il Casale di Villore. Florence and Siena, renown for their art and architecture, are within easy driving distance as is the medieval city of San Gimignano. Traditional Tuscan dishes are on offer in area restaurants and local wineries open their doors to you for tours and tastings.

Our guests are our number one priority and a member of the Villore staff is always on hand to address any problems or simply offer suggestions on how to best take advantage of the beauty of the region. In addition, we are also pleased to organize guided excursions, chef services or cooking class, additional housekeeping and even appointments with our on-call masseuse, guided tours, wine tasting and museums tickets

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Frantoio 3 nights in order to explore the Tuscany area. The pictures are accurate. The grounds are lovely. The town of Poggibonsi is 7 km down a winding road as is typical for Tuscany. Since it is a rural setting get your groceries before going up the road. Also note that you need to supply your own hand soap in the bathrooms and bath soap. This was new to me as other VRBO properties have had a starter of soap in the bathrooms so get that as well before starting up the road. We did not realize it until nighttime and did not want to go back to grocery about 15 or 20 min away so that's just a bit of info to help. The town of Siena is about 30-35 min away. The bathroom downstairs is a full bath although the tub is about half sized tub but would be perfect to bathe children but don't think an adult would be able to use it. No shower in that bathroom, only tub, but the one upstairs does have a shower. If you are there and it requires the heat to be turned on, heat is paid extra when you check out but it was just $20 Euros for the 3 nights we were there but if you were there in a cold time for an extended stay guess it could get a little pricey. The Frantoio is a separate house on the property and wi fi is free and there but you have to be right by window to pick it up. Kitchen has a small refrigerator and a cook top. No oven but I wasn't looking to cook anyway.

Peaceful villa in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The villa was ideal for my wife and I and our daughter to spend a few days in Tuscany. It is in a quiet part of the countryside with beautiful views over hills and valleys and the property itself is also very attractive. We stayed in Frantoio, which has a kitchen and living room, and small bathroom (toilet and small bathtub for kids) downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs, one with an en-suite bathroom. The size and layout suited us perfectly and it was separate from the main building. This may be preferable for some in busy times, although the whole property was very quiet and private while we were there, even though I was told there were others staying there at the same time.

Antonio was very friendly and helpful and helped make our stay enjoyable with directions and suggestions for the local area, and my wife and I really liked the wine his wife makes. The villa is an easy 7km drive from Poggibonsi, but follow the directions that Antonio provides as it is an easier route than the way our GPS took us the first time. That way was still very picturesque, through some beautiful scenery and a little village, but was slow winding and very narrow in a few parts.

Overall we had wonderful stay with the only problem being that it was not long enough. The listing and photos were very accurate and the property very clean and well maintained. We did day trips to Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa and Lucca. I highly recommend this villa to others looking for a peaceful stay in Tuscan countryside with easy access to surrounding towns.

Absolument fabuleux

  • 5 of 5

La casa di villore est sûrement le plus bel endroit au cœur du Chianti Classico. Le propriétaire Antonio est charmant et d'une aide précieuse. La propriété elle même est sublime dans un site enchanteur. La base idéale de vos explorations en Toscane. Nous y avons passé 2 semaines merveilleuses et l'avons quitté avec grand regrets. Merci Antonio.

Just Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We found this accommodation to be just ideal. It was immaculately clean and very well maintained, which was very important to us. We liked that it had the two bathrooms, making it convenient for two couples. The whole property was in a wonderful location, close to Florence, San Gimignano and Sienna and also the little villages of Chianti. We were made to feel most welcome, yet felt like we had our privacy. It was very quite as well. I would most highly recommend this property. We loved it!!
