San Casciano in Val di Pesa farmhouse description

La Corte is a traditional Tuscan farmhouse set in a hillside covered with vineyards, olive trees and woodland. The estate is set in the very heart of Chianti, only 16 km south of Florence. It is owned by one of Italy's oldest families, and the farmhouse offered here is set in a picturesque scenario: near to a Renaissance villa with wonderful Italian gardens. Walk to San Casciano, a beautiful village with restaurants and shops. A bus stop is only 1.5 km from the house. La Corte is a good base to visit Florence even without a car.

The house has a total 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, a total of 16 people can be accommodated. You can choose if you want to rent the property for 12, 14 or 16 people. The rental prices refer to an occupancy of 12 people. Surcharge if rented for more than 12 people.

Please ask for the link of our website to get more information. Thank you!

Despite its august background, this property is a refreshingly friendly and relaxed estate: The Renaissance Villa (no picture here), one of the finest in Tuscany, stands on the highest hill in the very centre of the estate. The Italian garden overlooking the Pesa Valley and the vast fourteenth century wine cellars and oil jar-storage, built into the embankment in the garden, complete the picturesque scenario. There is a small family owned restaurant on the premises, by the winery, open for lunch from Monday to Sunday and on the evenings of Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Having entered the hudge estate, a private access road of approx. 200 m leads to the La Corte farmhouse. La Corte stands by its own. The house was restored and modern amenities were installed while retaining the original architectural structure and characteristic farmhouse features. The interior is still 'farm style'. Some rooms have antique terracotta tiled floors, others have wooden floors. The brick roof rests on mighty oak beams. Just outside the dining room there is a terrace for al fresco dining equipped with table, chairs and a large garden parasol. A lawn leads to the pool. From the swimming pool, the garden fades naturally into the surrounding olive groves.

This bedroom has an independant access from the garden (it is not connected to the interior of the house), and the bathroom is suitable for wheelchair. (This bedroom will remain closed if the house is rented at the price for 12 people.)

8th bedroom (if rented for 16 people): On the first floor there is 1 more double bedroom with en suite bathroom (bathtub), which can be opened at an additional charge.

The house has views over the gently rolling hills, olive growes, vineyards and the village of San Casciano. It is just outside of the village, approx. 1.5 km distant. You could even walk there! San Casciano offers a good choice of excellent restaurants, a geleteria, several Cappuccino bars, all kind of grocery shops, a cinema, a bank, a post office and a beautiful local market every Monday morning. In the house you will find a list of recommended restaurants and information about the region. If you travel during the colder months you will enjoy the heated public indoor pool of San Casciano which is only 500 metres from the property. The villa's location only 1.5 km from the next bus stop is a good base to visit Florence even without a car. During the week buses go regularly to Florence (approx. every 1.5 hours). In Florence the bus will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station 'Santa Maria Novella' to the Cathedral or the Uffizi.

La Corte is suitable for anyone interested in the inner workings of an olive-oil- and wine-producing estate. The extensive vine and olive cultivations stretch as far as the eye can see. A selection of the best vintages is stored in the winery cellars in large kegs, and the olive oil is delcious. The estate offers those seeking to immerse themselves in the green hills of Chianti Classico the possibility of absorbing nature, history and culture in one!

The estate has another small holiday structure for 4 people. It does not disturb the privacy of the La Corte guests since it is at a distance of approx. 300 metres, it can not be seen, it has its own access road and even its own pool. If you are a group of 20 people you can rent this apartment additionally.

The prices are referred to an occupancy of 12 people.
For 14 people: low season 4900 EUR, mid season 5700 EUR, high season 6300 EUR.
For 16 people: low season 5100 EUR, mid season 6100 EUR, high season 6900 EUR.

                              Please note: The Google Map shows only the approximate location.

                              The house is just outside of the village of San Casciano, approx. 1.5 km distant. You could even walk there! San Casciano offers a good choice of excellent restaurants, a geleteria, several Cappuccino bars, all kind of grocery shops, a cinema, a bank, a post office and a beautiful local market every Monday morning. In the house you will find a list of recommended restaurants and information about the region. If you travel during the colder months you will enjoy the heated public indoor pool of San Casciano which is only 500 metres from the property. The villa's location only 1.5 km from the next bus stop is a good base to visit Florence even without a car. During the week buses go regularly to Florence (approx. every 1.5 hours). In Florence the bus will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station 'Santa Maria Novella' to the Cathedral or the Uffizi.

                              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 cafes 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.

                              Sightseeing

                              You are in the heart of Tuscany (San Casciano is 'the doorway to Chianti'), 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...

                              Distances

                              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. two hours.

                              Airports and transport

                              The Florence airport is 25 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.
