The Pendolino cottage (201m2) and the Frantoio cottage (104m2) are located within the farm complex, whereas the Moraiolo cottage (98m2) is to be found on the site of an old hayloft. Each accommodation has a furnished private patio.

Monte Casone can welcome you all year round with the highest level of comfort and respect for the environment, even in winter. To achieve this the farm holiday accommodation has been renovated recently with green technologies which have brought the buildings to the highest level of energy performance (A+).

The use of these technologies, which is extremely rare in this region of Italy, offers you the possibility of visiting Tuscany out of season and thus to avoid overcrowding in the high season in the popular tourist destinations.

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 cottage 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.

Tuscan Gem for Tuscan Holiday

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Pâques à Monte Casone

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine délicieuse où nous avons profité de la maison qui a une exposition superbe avec le soleil du matin au soir, découvert tout plein de belles balades, vu beaucoup de faune et d'oiseaux pour les amoureux de la nature et découvert quelques tables aux alentours.

Merci à nos hôtes pour leur accueil et les petits gestes appréciés.

An absolute dream stay

  • 5 of 5

Being surrounded by breathtaking views and staying in a top notch apartment made our stay at Monte Casone an absolute dream vacation and have created many good memories. We could easily have stayed longer and would love to return.

A super thanks to Niccoló and Liza who take such good care of the place and arranged a great wine tasting on the premise.

Highly recommended!

Juste.... fabuleux

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons découvert MONTE CASONE en 2013 et y sommes retournés pour la troisième fois cette année.

Vous tombez sous le charme de cet endroit dés que vous sillonnez la route qui vous y conduit et que vous apercevez la demeure au loin.

A peine franchi le portail, vous serez chaleureusement accueilli et ne pourrez que vous sentir (presque) chez vous!

L'endroit est sublime : une demeure aménagée avec beaucoup de goût et avec des matériaux de qualité située dans un cadre digne d'une carte postale, une piscine à débordement avec une vue à couper le souffle, un domaine sublime....

Tout y est ! Un maillot et de la crème solaire et votre valise est prête.

Pas besoin de s'encombrer de draps de lit, draps de bains pour la piscine, enceinte Bluetooth ou encore nombreux vêtements vu la présence d'une machine à laver et d'un séchoir ....

L'endroit est d'autant plus accueillant qu'il est d'une propreté exceptionnel (tant la maison que la propriété).

Monte Casone n'est pas seulement un lieu exceptionnel, ce sont également des personnes magnifiques qui rendront votre séjour d'autant plus agréable : Elisabeth et Mathieu, Théo et Thomas !

Ils sont non seulement accueillants mais également particulièrement disponibles sans oublier très sympathiques !

Vous vivrez un magnifique séjour à Monte Casone mais aussi ..... dés que vous aurez quitté les lieux ... vous n'aurez envie que d'une seule chose : y revenir au plus vite, raison pour laquelle nous y sommes encore retourné cet été et nous pouvons vous garantir que la perfection est toujours le mot qui qualifie le mieux MONTE CASONE

Owner's Response: Chère Sandrine, quel plaisir de lire un avis si élogieux! Nous consacrons énormément d'énergie à créer le "rêve toscan", et il est toujours gratifiant d'avoir un retour aussi positif! De plus, votre commentaire nous concernant nous touche énormément. Nous avons vraiment hâte de vous accueillir en Toscane pour la quatrième fois!!! Bien à vous, Elisabeth

Simply WONDERFULL!!! / Simplement Magnifique!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week @ Monte Casone from 13th to 20 th August with our two little girls aged 11 and 5 years old.

It was an lovely and amazing experience: wonderfull landscapes, magnificent property (we stayed at Frantoio appartment), luxous furnished appartment (expresso machine, big freezer, blu ray, beautiful interior design, etc) with a nice terrasse overlooking superb views on the valley and olive trees. We enjoyed the serenity and calm inspired by the appartment, swimmingpool and location on the hills. We enjoyed relaxing moments "mixed" with some more active events (visits, walking, etc).

We also visited Pisa, San Gemignano, Voltera, Peccioli which are very close. We met very nice and interesting people.

The owners are very nice and eager to help us to enjoy relaxing moments and share their experience/knowledge of Tuscany.

We will come back and recommend it very much.

Thank you!

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.


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!
