Rest assured, you will experience moments of complete fulfilment, which you will be happy to share with your loved ones in the large overflow swimming pool or during unforgettable evenings with a good glass of Brunello wine.

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.

Because luxury is in the detail.


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.

New, comfortable and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 5 night stay very much. The property is a lovely setting and the construction and home features are very high quality.

We cooked light meals easily for two.

The location is a little remote and requires driving of at least 30 minutes to access the Coop in Peccioli but it is a large store and adequate. Gizzano's services were so limited we did not even attempt to use them.

Beautiful, tranquil setting for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our 1 week stay at Monte Casone – Moraiolo and had a wonderful time. We arrived after 4 busy days in Florence (only 1-1.5 hour drive away) and were given a warm welcome by Elisabeth & Mathieu. The villa was immaculate - very clean, with all the amenities we could have wanted, a real home from home. The shared infinity pool was beautiful and a very welcome relief from the hot July weather. The villa is situated along an undulating track, which did seem longer than we thought, but didn't put us off driving to nearby Ghizzano for bread most mornings. Peccioli - about 20 mins drive from the villa has a new Coop that allowed us to buy the supplies we needed. Can't fault the property at all, the location is great for visiting many towns with lovely tavernas (although some via pretty rough tracks rather than fully tarred roads). The area has lots to see, but if a relaxing holiday by the pool is all you want in stunning surroundings, then this is the place for you. Thanks for our holiday it really was a Tuscan Dream.

Amazing property and views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Monte Casone. We stayed in the Moraiolo, which is a stand alone villa. The villa and property is immaculate and beautiful. The pool is stunning and well equipped to spend the day relaxing. We found the villa centrally located but wonderfully isolated. We loved the location because sites were close enough to travel to but was so peaceful when we wanted to relax by the pool. The owners, were so helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this property for your visit to Tuscany. We were two couples and the villa was very spacious and comfortable.

Perfection dans le calme et la beauté

  • 5 of 5

Élisabeth et Mathieu, ainsi que leurs enfants Teo et Thomas nous ont accueillis dans le gîte Moraiolo : nous n'avons jamais été aussi bien reçus par des hôtes. Nos trois enfants ont de suite sympathisé.

Nous avons passé 2 semaines fabuleuses : grand confort, grande propreté, piscine très bien pensée et magnifique, rafraichissante.

Les températures (fin juillet, début août) 33° environ avec une ou deux averses bienfaisantes et vite oubliées.

Des nuits fraiches : grâce à la ventilation mécanique du gîte on tournait aux alentours de 25°.

Le calme est royal. Aucune circulation de voiture à proximité.

La présence des vacanciers dans les autres gîtes était imperceptible depuis notre logement.

Cela ne nous a pas empêché de sympathiser autour de la piscine.

Barbecue sur la terrasse dans un décor somptueux.

Enceinte Bluetooth, grande télévision et DVD à disposition. Draps de bain pour la piscine... Tout a été prévu !

On peut vraiment faire confiance au descriptif du site internet.

Excursions à proximité : vous serez à Pise et Lucca, Voltera, San Giminiano en 30 minutes ! Florence en 60 minutes et Sienne 90 minutes !

Boulangerie au village, grande surface à 15 minutes.

Ça a été très dur de quitter ce havre de paix.

Félicitation à nos hôtes pour tout le travail accompli avant et pendant ce séjour inoubliable !

Nous leur sommes très reconnaissants.

Vincent et Nathalie.

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!
