  • For a smaller group, it is possible to rent only the main portion of this beautifully converted, rambling Tuscan farmhouse. Sufficiently high to take advantage of the wonderful views of this historic area, yet set just below the crest of the Montagnola hills west of Siena, Casale is snugly settled into its 3 hectares of grounds, gently perfumed by lavender, antique roses, wisteria and herbs, and protected within a boundary of cypresses and Holm oaks. On the first terrace behind the house, the large pool has a wide, furnished terrace, shaded at one end by a pergola. From here you can enjoy the varied sunsets and survey places such as Volterra, pick out traces of ancient pilgrim and commercial routes crossing the hills on their way to Siena; or just purr with pleasure as you unwind from stressful cities.


    A large furnished terrace with pergola at one end offering shade is ideal for dining outside or just sitting to enjoy a drink while watching the sunset. A glass door leads into an elegant dining room and another door leads into the farmhouse kitchen with original fireplace. Off the kitchen is a large storeroom or pantry with fridge and freezer. From the kitchen a stone staircase leads to a studio, from where a wooden step-ladder leads to a gallery bedroom with twin beds. On one side of the studio is a shower room that serves the twin/double bedroom on this level. A few steps down from the studio is a large, comfortable sitting room with a fireplace and beyond this room, the master double bedroom with a large ensuite bathroom.

    Local area

    You will be welcomed on arrival by an English-speaking friend of the owner who will show you the property and give advice, if needed, on restaurants to visit, etc. The owner has left books, brochures and cards for visits, restaurants and other services to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. This house is the private joy of its owner, and its conversion and furnishings express her delight and care, with beautifully conserved original features enhanced by treasures collected over many years. It is also child friendly, due to frequent visits by children and grandchildren.

    A happy house, ideally situated both for relaxing in the glorious and fascinating Montagnola countryside, and benefiting from the vicinity of Siena, San Gimignano and Florence. Il Casale is situated a couple of kilometres beyond the famous hotel Relais La Suvera and its restaurant, along a good unmade country lane. Just below La Suvera is the historic village of Pievescola, with a Romanesque church, a bar/shop and other restaurants. Pievescola holds a Sagra del Fungo festival each September, celebrating the enormous quantities of Porcini mushrooms found in the woods.
