About Mathieu & Elisabeth
Belgian Citizens, Mathieu and Elisabeth lived for more than 10 years in Tuscany. This airline Captain and his wife completely renovated their 9 hectares estate, tastefully blending Tuscan heritage, luxury and green technologies. From the vast olive grove that extends over a large part of their estate, Mathieu and Elisabeth extract a high quality organic oil using an ancestral process of first cold pressing.
What makes this Villa unique
The buildings in Monte Casone have been luxuriously restored according to original plans and have been awarded the much sought after energy performance certificate A+. In order to achieve this a number of green technologies were used during the renovation, such as a closed loop geothermal well system, pyramid shaped under-floor heating and cooling, polarized low emissivity windows, wood fibreboard insulation, dual-flow ventilation and, in addition, the construction of a solar power plant which generates around thirty megawatts of electricity per year. This resolutely environment friendly approach has enabled Monte Casone to reduce its fossil fuel consumption to zero for all the tertiary part of its operation. This is part of what makes Monte Casone so unique: the harmonious combination of respect for its heritage with the luxury of the installation and respect for the environment.

Still dreaming about the Tuscan hillside views
We stayed at Monte Casone in the Frantoio unit. The views were stunning each morning and evening, enjoyed throughly from our private outdoor patio with full table. Our dream was to explore many small Tuscan towns and wineries from a spot with a view of the Tuscan hills; Monte Cason provided a restorative home base. Nick and Lisa were willing to answer questions and give recommendations. The home’s indoor area was lovely with comfortable beds and leather sofas. Everything is high quality! Note the home is remote, so plan ahead to pick up groceries at a coop as you won’t be walking to the corner to grab an espresso. We would definitely come back for future visits to this area.
Perfect Tuscany get away
A beautiful property in a gorgeous setting. Magnificent hiking and lots of amazing villages and towns to explore and enjoy.
Tuscan Gem for Tuscan Holiday
Excellent bright, spacious, modern and very well equipped accommodation with a delightful patio with incredible views over the Tuscan countryside. Landlady Elizabeth is a delight and extremely helpful. Pool was great. Location is somewhat remote but suited us as we used as a base to travel the Tuscan sites. Access road was hard on the car, but fortunately ours was a rental. We would definitely go back.
Amazing Property with an Incredible Infinity Pool
Magnificently renovated property split into three units in the main house and an additional guest house. My family stayed in the main house on the first floor. We had an amazing view of Tuscany from our back patio and enjoyed many beautiful sunsets. The house was fully stacked with everything one may wish for (food excluding) and very well decorated. We enjoyed swimming in the infinity pool, meeting and hanging out with our neighbors, and watching many movies which the owner provided to us. We also enjoyed exploring the surrounding towns of Tuscany. Overall an experience we will never forget. Amazing place, definitely worth the visit! PS bring bug spray.
Décor de carte postale
Nous avons séjourné 8 nuits à Monte Casone avec nos garçons de 8 et 5 ans, nous pouvons dire que nous sommes tous les 4 tombés sous le charme des lieux et de la région. Derrière chaque colline, après chaque virage, à la découverte de chaque village, l’envie vous prend de dégainer votre appareil photo pour tenter de saisir cette atmosphère, cette luminosité, cet aspect paisible et doux... Oui, la Toscane est un endroit de rêve et Monte Casone est l’endroit parfait pour la découvrir. Nous y reviendrons, c’est certain.
Afgelegen villa, onderverdeeld in gites. Al het nodige is aanwezig. Privacy verzekerd. Mooi zicht vanuit het zwembad. Lieve, behulpzame eigenaars. Mooie omgeving.
Om iets te gaan bezichtigen dien je een stuk te rijden maar dat stoorde ons niet.
The village of Ghizzano is only three kilometres away from the estate. There, you will find a bakery and very typical grocery store / bar.
The closest supermarkets are 15 minutes away, San Gimignano and Volterra are 30 minutes away, Pisa is 40 minutes away, Florence and Lucca are 60 minutes away and Sienna is 90 minutes away.
Gastronomes and lovers of truffles will be delighted to discover or rediscover the pleasures of Tuscan cuisine. There are numerous restaurants in the region and generally they serve excellent food.
ACTIVITIES IN THE REGION:
In addition to the towns of major historic interest such as Florence, Sienna or Lucca you can discover such pearls of the Tuscan heritage as San Gimignano or Volterra. And to relax a little, there is nothing better than a game of golf in the neighbouring hillsides or a relaxing massage in the thermal baths of Casciana!
