I've always been in love with country life and my father's activity, breeding "Chianina", so I decided with my wife Vicky, who has been in love with life in the heart of the Crete Senesi, to continue in running the family farm, that meanwhile enlarged also to farmhouse hospitality.
Our agricultural activities other than production of cereals, from which we get our flour, also includes that of extra virgin olive oil, but above all cattle of fine breed Chianina: breeding in the wild in accordance with ancient traditions dating back to the Etruscans. Our animals are fed only grain and fodder for our own production.
Who stays in Casanova is not considered as a mere customer, but a welcome visitor that can share our daily activities. All are welcome in the barn to learn about our cows and the bull Gigio and discover what is our job.
The pool and garden overlooking a breathtaking panorama are ideal for a quiet moment of relaxation, perhaps tasting a glass of good wine.
The evening in the garden or in the great hall, in the ancient stables, we will let you enjoy our products processed in delicious traditional Tuscan recepies by Nonna Paola.

Welcome to the world’s most photographed panorama! There is indeed no piece of this landscape left that has not already become a snapshot. A wide sea of clay spreads out over the countryside Southeast of Siena: one evocative, soft hill follows the other, the few forests leave space to the endless stretches of wheat fields and grassland, able to change their colours with the succession of the seasons.
The Crete Senesi are indeed a quite different world. Someone has defined them as “moonscape”, but only because he hasn’t seen them in spring, when the explosion of nature makes the fields become green waves, caressed by the wind, or in autumn, when the farmers’ ploughs bring the clay back to the surface, with its beautiful violet shimmer.
The Crete are, without doubt, a land of agriculture. In the first place a land of wheat and land of the shepherds. Not by chance it’s famous for its sheep’s milk cheese, unique like the unmistakable flavour of the wild herbs that give their aroma to the sheep’s milk. Land of olive groves that produce the fine “Terre di Siena” oil with guarantee of origin (Dop). And right here in the area of the Crete one of the rarest and finest white truffles of Italy can be found.
In this clayey region with its endless horizons we do not find a lot of stone. Almost everything is made of bricks and therefore made of clay: the beautiful farmhouses that stay isolated on the top of a hill, lined by high cypress trees; the magnificent monuments that mark the territory like cardinal points, from the Abbey of Monte Oliveto (spiritual headquarter of the Crete Senesi, with a marvellous cloister with 16th century frescoes by Sodoma and Signorelli) to the fortified medieval storehouse for wheat Grancia di Cuna, from the castle of San Giovanni d’Asso to the city walls of Buonconvento.
Only around Rapolano, land of the hot springs and the travertine, stone is a protagonist. Stone and bricks meet harmoniously in Asciano, chief city of this territory centuries ago, where we can admire side by side the Sienese city walls of the 14th century, the Romanesque architecture of the Basilica of Sant’Agata and the artistic treasures of Palazzo Corboli, a glorious medieval city palace that today houses a rich museum.
