Great host, great location , great stay
One little week but enough to fully relax at Eva and Pietro’s little oasis. For us beach lovers , it was a deliberate choice to try a new place a little bit more inland and discover Tuscany’s medieval towns as we please, yet with the luxury of a great pool when we were back from our little excursions. Being away from mass tourism in the middle of July was greatly enjoyable and spending time with our family and two little dogs at I Casali is an experience we will remember with lots of fond memories. See you next time!
Relaxation in the most beautiful surrounding Tuscany countryside
We were a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 children (10,10 & 13) from the minute we booked the communication was excellent. We arrived late at night due to an issue with our Car hire company but Eva greeted us with such a warm, natural welcome. Due to our lateness we didn’t have time to stop and buy basics for breakfast but Eva kindly arrived with a basket of essentials for our family to have breakfast which was so kind and thoughtful. We visited Volterra, Pomerance and San Gimignano and for the rest of the time we chilled by the pool at the farmhouse relaxing in the most spectacular surroundings you can imagine, the peace and quiet and privacy was blissful and it is all wired in and gated so children have great freedom to roam around and play, or relax and read in the hammock or splash in the pool. Highly recommend this letting and if I could give any advise to families coming to stay it would be don’t over do the traveling to medieval towns for the kids as they unfortunately are not as interested as us adults are - we found the days where we had breakfast and lunch at the farmhouse and let the kids relax, play in the pool and then went somewhere like Volterra in the evenings for food and ice cream then a stroll around the beautiful shops were definitely the best days spent in I Casali - as voted by our children. I hope we will make it back again.
Best holidays ever!
Most wonderful stay ever.
It was all so perfect. We are for sure coming back and we will recommend this place to all our friends.
We had the best time with all our boys.
Amazing Home With Breath Taking Views
We have a family of 5 and this home in the hills was amazing! It was roomy, very clean, updated yet it still had all the charm of a classic Tuscan stone farm house. It was about a 20 minute drive from the closest large town but there was a smaller town near by to get fuel, find a bank, pastry store, etc. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were updated. The owners, Pietro and his wife were very accommodating and kind. We would definitely come back here again and again!!!
In one word: STUNNING.
We were on top of a Tuscan hill with a breathtaking views, in an uncontaminated setting, with a heated swimming pool. We couldn’t ask for a better place.
There are only two apartments for rent, with very nice and well-kept furniture and all amenities included, which makes it very peacefull.
The location is away from the cities but without been remote: It was so easy to travel to Volterra, San Gemignano and Sienna.
The hosts, Pietro and Eva are wonderful , happy to help us but discrete. We’ll definitely come back! Highly recommended.
Perfect, tranquil and idillyic
We had the most amazing holiday. The accommodation is faultless and set in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, with far reaching breath-taking views. The villa is ideally located within an hour’s travelling distance of many places. The pool and gardens are tidy and well maintained. The nearby beaches are well worth a visit. The locals speak varying degrees of English but were always very happy and eager to welcome us. Pietro was a perfect host who was very helpful in suggesting places to visit, things to do and restaurants. We completely fell in love this place and will definitely return, leaving was very difficult! Highly recommended.
