About Grazia Cipollini

Our names are Gino and Grace and we are brother and sister. I'm 51 years old and my brother 44.

Grazia Cipollini purchased this villa in 1962

Why Grazia Cipollini chose Cortona

It is the family home where we were born and raised. In the 50s it was entirely rebuilt by our father. In recent years the house had been empty so the idea of the house Holiday born from the desire to see again lived the childhood home and the pleasure of meeting and hosting people from all over the world!

What makes this villa unique

Our home allows you to experience a truly relaxing holiday and enjoy a wonderful view. The improvements that will be made for next year will allow you to enjoy spacious common areas inside, as well as external ones that already exist.

We loved the house! We were a group of 4 couples. The house has 5 king size bedrooms each with private bath. Plenty of room. The remodeling of the house has been done with attention to every detail, the woodwork was beautiful. The grounds were kept immaculate and the pool, the pool was perfect!

We spent a wonderful time at Casale 36. The property is extremely well cared for, including caretaker cleaning pool every morning. The rooms are beautifully furnished with king size bed in each room, and private bath for each room. The outside seating for family breakfasts to sit and plan the day is very large and can accommodate the whole family. Grazia organized a wonderful meal for us prepared by a local couple. The food was excellent, and we spent a lot of time talking and playing games after dinner. we wanted to have them come back to do another meal, but did not have enough time. We should have stayed for 2 weeks instead of 1. We enjoyed the tour of the winery in Montepulciano on Grazia's recommendation. The meal there was amazing. We has several meals in Cortona. We have been to Cortona before and rented a villa that was walkable to town, but this villa was worth the drive. Take your time and enjoy the beautiful scenery! We highly recommend CASALE 36

Family, Old Friends, and New Friends

For our 50th Anniversary, we rented the Villa Casale 36 for one month. Our family and friends all visited and we found the property perfect for everyone from 2 years old to 70 plus. The property was spacious with a well equipped kitchen, indoor and outdoor living areas, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, and a beautiful pool and patio.

Casale 36 is located perfectly for day tripping in Tuscany and Umbria. It was wonderful to return in the afternoon to the beautiful, tranquil home away from home.

The property is beautiful, but it was Grazia and her family and friends who really made our trip special. Everyone of groups loved the Pizza Night, where Grazia and her brother, Gino, prepared delicious pizza and demonstrated how to use our in-kitchen Pizza Oven. Grazia also recommended Francesco who provided car service to and from the airport in Rome. He also arranged private guided tours to Assisi and Spoleto. Everyone's favorite was the Bike Tour he led with breakfast and lunch at local farms. Valentina and Filippo provided wonderful dinners and gave us an appreciation for the fresh local ingredients and cuisine. They also have a gift shop and Florist shop in Cortona. We also got to know Grazia's Mother, Valentina's Mother, and Grazia's son, Matteo.

After a month, we felt like we were leaving a home and hope to return again to see the beautiful terraced garden and olive harvest in the Fall.

"Casale 36 is so beautiful"

  • 5 of 5

Casale 36 is so beautiful! We spent a week here with my family, my parents and three friends and had a wonderful time. The house is extremely well appointed, with great care taken on furnishings, and a bathroom for every room. Thank you to our host for accommodating our slightly expanded party in the granary building. The set-up was fabulous and we had everything we needed. There were so many welcoming touches from the antipasti and home-made crostata when we arrived, to the small wine cellar and coffee for purchase, and the pool toys available for our girls. We spent most of our time with regular swims in the pool, or on the porch, immersed in the incredible view and enjoying good food and company. The place provided a good base for exploring local towns, even though it isnalong a windy road. We had a wonderful host and made sure we knew how everything worked and were comfortable for our stay. We would have happily stayed another week enjoying the tranquil surroundings. Would highly recommend Casale 36 for a holiday.

our wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed at this property for two weeks. The rooms are large and just was just as nice as the other. The owners Grazia and Gino could not have been any more accommodating. Gelato was brought up to the villa one afternoon by Grazia.. what a pleasant surprise. The arrival meal was absolutely delicious. Can't say enough good things about this property or its owners, as they went above and beyond for their guests. We all miss this place already!
