Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Casale Classico is perfect for five couples or an extended family, and the location couldn't be better! Located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region and set on an idyllic hillside just 15 minutes from Florence (18 km) and less than an hour from Siena, the villa is within an hour's drive of Lucca, and all of the beautiful hill towns of Chianti are within easy reach. The closest village, Mercatale Val di Pesa, with shops and restaurants, is just 5 minutes away (2 km), and facilities for horseback riding are available nearby (3 km).
Casale Classico has five bedrooms with five en suite bathrooms. Upon request and for an additional fee, four additional beds can be added bringing the total capacity of the villa to 14 guests. This beautiful, spacious villa has been totally restored. The property includes the house (530 sqm) and an amazing swimming pool (15 x 7 metres) with separate circular Jacuzzi tub and furnished stone solarium. There is a also a separate dependence (40 sqm) on the property, where the owner's belongings are stored (a double bed is located in a loft and a sitting area with fireplace and a bathroom with shower are located on the ground floor). In special situations, the owner may be willing to open it for larger groups at an additional cost. (The opening of the dependence must be requested when booking).
The manicured lawn is bordered with roses and olive trees, and a shaded stone patio overlooks the pool and is furnished with a long table, comfortable chairs, and a BBQ for al fresco dining watching the sunset. A few steps away is the beautiful fresh-water pool with Jacuzzi, surrounded by lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas, with a panoramic view of the Chianti hills. Some steps away there is a pool house with changing room and bathroom with shower. Inside, Casale Classico has beautiful terracotta tile floors and beamed ceilings. It is divided into two floors.

The Chianti area
The hills of Chianti, criss-crossed with vines and crested with cypress trees have become the hallmark of Tuscany, the beauty of the landscape married to a quality of life which would be rare anywhere in the world. Chiantishire, as the English call it, has an infinite variety of hilltop villages where you can sip a cappuccino in one of the outdoor cafe's in the medieval squares, of cellars where you can sample the local wines from the barrels, of little trattorias serving robustly satisfying Tuscan food with its hams and salamis and delicious pastas and wild boar stew with white beans and salads growing wild in the hedgerows. The back roads wind uphill and down, between old stone walls crested with pale violet irises past Romanesque cloisters, sandstone farmhouses and shepherds with their flocks of sheep producing the famed 'pecorino' cheese.
You are in the heart of Tuscany and the list of excursions half or a whole day away is long: Florence, famous for its fine Renaissance art, the walled city of Lucca with its 99 churches, the leaning tower of Pisa, the Val d'Orcia with the Renaissance town of Pienza and the wine-making meccas of Montepulciano and Montalcino and the awe-inspiring abbey of Sant'Antimo are just a few...
Florence is 15 to 20 minutes away, Greve in Chianti 25 minutes, San Gimignano 30 minutes, while Siena can be reached in 50 minutes. Montalcino and Pienza are a one and a half hour's drive, while the Thyrrenian sea is one hour away. Pisa and Lucca are one hour by car while the jet-set sea resort of Porto Ercole can be reached in approx. one and a half hours.
Airports and transport
The Florence airport is 30 kilometres away and Pisa is at 118 kilometres, while the airport in Rome is less than three hours away and approx. 290 kilometres further south. The nearest railway station with most travel options is Florence.
Included in the price is also a standard dinner on your first evening after a long trip.

"Beautiful!" The house and surroundings are beautiful in itself. The sunset is amazing. It was extra special because of the flowers in the house and the welcoming food. Every day cleaning service was also great. I certainly recommend the house to others.
