MariaTeresa Passaglia purchased this Farmhouse in 1950
Why MariaTeresa Passaglia chose San Casciano In Val di Pesa
We inherited this old farm in 1500 by my husband's parents, then they lived there coloni- the sharecroppers who lived in farmhouses and worked the land, we came from the city for the weekend and we thought when we here forget all the worries and thoughts we live nature outdoors with confidence. Therefore, when the settlers could no longer work the land and the property had to be guided by a farmer was very easy to decide to become agricultural entrepreneurs ourselves and carry on this reality in the best way, though, especially in the early days, Before we worked so hard all the plots of land, renovated vineyards and olive groves then we have dedicated ourselves to the structures we started to restore old houses in 1500 that they had so much need, the work has been made a little 'for year plan but in a very determined and when we have achieved our goal the houses were restored then we decided to share them with guests who wanted to come and visit the beautiful Tuscany and at the same time they could enjoy the complete relaxation in our diving business in the beauty and tranquility of the countryside Tuscany We are in the middle of Tuscany in very good area, a step away (10km) from the beautiful Florence but you can easily reach all the most beautiful art cities rich well of history and natural beauty, such as, Siena, San Gimignano ; AREZZO VOLTERRA, PISA, LUCCA, the COSTA TIRRENICA; VERSILIA; LIVORNO, MAREMMA this area is then surrounded by beautiful as interesting towns full of art and history What MONTELUPO FIORENTINO ancient and modern ceramics, pottery, archaeological museum, Vinci, Leonardo museum, CERTALDO medieval village home of Boccaccio, MERCANTIA street party , Monteriggioni medieval festival, then SANCASCIANO, San Casciano, Greve etc ..

A week in Tuscany
Thank you for a wonderful 8 days in the farm house. We had a wonderful time in such great location. Marie Teresa is excellent at keeping track of who's coming and when they are leaving and she is wonderfully swift with responses.
The residence is located on the most beautiful of vineyards/olive groves and the drive from the gate to the accommodation is spectacular when one first arrives (even if it is in the rain).
The pool is clean and maintained again with wonderful views over the Tuscan countryside.
Inside our accommodation there was ample space to relax. The showers were excellent and powerful and the kitchen was very clean and ordered.
Unfortunately we found the functionality a little difficult. The cooking hob needed matches to light the gas burners, There were a few but we needed to purchase a lighter to ensure that we didn't run out. The kettle was also not electric and although not a major problem it might have helped if it were for those necessities. The kitchen appliances were adequate but a little dated functionally
The bedrooms were very clean and tidy but the beds were a little hard. Understandable to cater to everyones taste but there were particularly hard.
The only significant criticism was the sitting room area. Although functional the sofas were very dated and lumpy and the TV was really small. Whilst the sun shines it is appropriate to sit out but when it rains or it is too hot the kids would have liked to be able to sit and either read or watch a film. This being said, we sadly couldn't get the internet to recognise the codes for login and we ended being wireless less for a week. Great for the majority of the week but might have been useful
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our week with Marie Teresa and would recommend the accommodation to friends and family. Those few minor changes may have made it perfect instead of just good.
Thanks Rob, thank you for your review and your words, this year we will take note of your advice and we will provide , but when there is also some small problem or you need something please, you tell to us , we are always present to satisfy customer requests ,this, ,because we want your vacation to be perfect, next time everything will be excellent, so many of the things you said could only be overcome with a request .Thank you again for your friendship and to have chosen CASALINI for your holiday in Tuscany I hope to see you again soon and it will be a festa Sincerely
Perfect mix of relaxing by a lovely pool, rustic but comfortable house (large king size bed with very lovely mattress), and close access to Florence, Sienna, and loads of amazing sites.

Traumurlaub in der Toskana
An dieses wunderschöne Anwesen haben wir 1999 sofort unser Herz verloren und sind seitdem alle Jahre wiedergekommen. Egal ob wir mit unseren drei Kindern alleine dort waren, mit Großeltern oder verschiedenen Freunden, alle waren total begeistert und wir hatten jedes Jahr einen traumhaften Urlaub. Von den Besitzern wird man sofort sehr herzlich aufgenommen, sie sind überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie geben jederzeit gerne Auskünfte und Tipps über Land und Leute. Das Anwesen selber ist sehr gepflegt und liegt ruhig in traumhafter Landschaft inmitten von Weinbergen und Olivenhainen, ein Platz um sie Seele baumeln zu lassen. Trotzdem sind Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Sportangebote wie Tennis, Reiten und Golf sowie natürlich Ausflugsziele wie Florenz, Siena, Pisa und vieles mehr sehr schnell zu erreichen. Jeder der einen individuellen Urlaub weitab vom Massentourismus sucht wird hier sein Glück finden.
Grazie tantissime sono contenta che siate stati bene da noi e del vostro ricordo spero di rivederci presto
ancora tantissime grazie
