Overview

About the property

3 bedroom farmhouse at the end of a private road, peace and stunning views

Casalone is a stunning 16th Century restored stone wall farmhouse in the heart of Chianti, 5 minutes drive from the town of Greve-in-Chianti, and 30 minutes from the city of Florence. It is situated just a few kms from the three medieval hamlets of Badia a Passignano, Montefioralle and Panzano in Chianti.

The stunning property is located at the end of a private road that has no through traffic.

Situated on top of a hill in it's own 4.5 hectares of olive groves and vineyards, the property faces south with uninterrupted views over the beautiful rolling Tuscan hills barely changed since medieval times.

The same views can be enjoyed from the private infinity pool set in an immaculate garden, the perfect place to be in the Tuscan summer heat!

The house sleeps 6-8 people and with lots of indoor and outdoor space, it is the perfect place for family and friends, for celebration or relaxation.

Some of the fresh produce to be found growing there include olives, grapes, pears, apples, cherries, walnuts, almonds, figs and peach. If it's in season, help yourself!

A beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Casslone is a wonderful place to stay. Communication with both Barclay and Esther was always clear and prompt.

The house is great, the pool is a delightful place to relax, and the view is sublime.

The kitchen is fully equipped as well as very good restaurants in the nearby village. Essential services in nearby Greve are about a ten minute drive away.

The pizza oven was also a great experience making our own pizzas.

It was an easy drive to sight see at San Gimignano and Siena.

Our family of five would love to return as soon as possible. Highly recommended!

Beautiful Tuscan house with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I and our four boys ages 13 -20 stayed a few days in this amazing villa. It completely exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect- from the house itself, the location, and the incredible views. It was nice to feel very secluded from everything however, also wonderful to be able to enjoy the nice wineries, restaurants, and beautiful hill towns in a short drive. Ester was an amazing host- from meeting us in Greve to guide us to the house and giving us excellent recommendations for restaurants, wineries, etc. We enjoyed the infinity pool and the outdoor pizza oven which was very cool to use! I can't say enough positive things about this villa except we didn't get to stay long enough. I highly recommend this home & I hope to return one day.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, spectacular setting and overwhelmingly good service from the hosts. The pictures do not do it justice; our whole group never ceased to be in awe of the views and perfectly manicured property. Ester went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect Tuscany experience. I really cannot say enough good things about the house and service – truly remarkable!

BEAUTIFUL VILLA IN CHANTI

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay at Villa Casalone. Our party of 4 relaxed and unwound at this truly special property nestled in the hillside. The grounds were lush and beautifully landscaped blending seamlessly with the breath taking hills beyond. Sunrise and sunsets are not to be missed from this spectacular property. The house was cozy and well stocked with all the basics. We dined-in every night and took full advantage of the wonderful kitchen and rustic pizza oven. Our hostess Ester was an absolute pleasure and guided us to the somewhat remote property with confidence. We also relied on Ester for a special evening of culinary adventure which included a meticulously prepared 5 course dinner at the villa that was out of this world. Thank you Ester and Barclay for a truly memorable visit and we look forward to our next visit.

Very romantic and private spot with unforgettable view.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic. We stayed a week in october with 2 kids and 4 adults. After a very warm welcome by Ester, the dedicated hosetess, we had a unforgettable stay in Casalone. The view from the terrace is simply beautiful and impressive: surrounded by olive trees you look over the green Tuscany hills.The house is spacious and we had everything we needed. We were very lucky with the weather, and so we were able to use the pool every day and so we did!! And it were not only the children who loved the table tennis.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We rented this farmhouse for a week in late September. We loved every minute we were there. The property is beautiful - situated among olive groves, rows of cypress and fig trees. Quiet. Magical. Life-changing. The house itself has everything one could need - and more - and we found ourselves cooking many meals there. Dining under the stars. Swimming. Reading. Resting. Strolling. Though, if you prefer, it is only a short drive to many wonderful restaurants as well as other Tuscan highlights i.e. vineyards, cities etc. You will want for nothing. Barclay, the owner, was extremely responsive and easy to communicate with and provides his guests with ample information not only about the home but also the area. The host of Casalone, Ester, is extraordinary. We fell in love! She stocked our kitchen with requested items before we arrived, helped arrange dinner reservations and provided great recommendations for vineyard visits and so on. She also shared her love of Italy - its food, music, wine - and provided the warmest possible welcome one could imagine. I suppose the true measure of a vacation is the degree of sadness felt upon departure. In that regard, the stay at Casalone measured very high indeed as we were greatly saddened to say goodbye. Our deepest thanks to Barclay and Ester. We will hope for another visit soon!!

Chianti offers a unique landscape, with green, gentle hills covered with wide fields of vineyards and olive groves, small stone villages, characteristic parishes and countryside homes in stone.
