About Zak, manager

Zak, manager purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2001
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The house is formed by two parts and the oldest part that currently is the highest one, during the medieval period, was one of the various sighting Towers utilized by the papal army in the area. For this reason, it was built on the top of the hill from where it is possible to have a great view all over the region. During the centuries, due to wars and weather conditions, part of the tower fell down and it was rebuilt in various ways always in consideration of its use as a watch tower, for housing and farm storage. The lower part of the house, was built attached to the old Tower in the second half of 1800's. Up to when the owner bought and remodeled it, the ground floor was used as a stable, cow shed and pigsty, while the tower was a storehouse for grains. The upper floor was dedicated to the living area of the family. You can see the story of the remodeling and the changes in the photos you find at the house-book of the villa..

Wonderful house in a beautiful garden
Villa is located in a beautiful well kept garden with lots of fruit and ornamental trees. A wonderfull view especially this time (October) of the year with the tees loaded with fruits.The lawn covers several little terraces which ar bordered by trees and brushes. So there are many places to relax in the sun or the shade. The whole place is very quiet (except some misbehaving barking dogs) since it is located in the middle of fields, orchards and olive groves, but only 5 minutes by car from the market of Cetona.
The house is very spacious, has a nice fireplace and the wood is for free! Great place. Well furnished and cozy. One of the best houses we have rented for vacation so far. Very friendly house keepers Anna and Mario who help wherever they can.
Unfortunately the pool was already closed for the year ( we -mis-understood that it would be open to end of October).
The only negative was, that some small appliances should be replaced or upgraded.
We love to come back, maybe a little earlier in the year.
The villa is definitely to be recommended.
We are pleased to read how much you enjoyed your October vacation at La Casella. We aim to make it a peaceful oasis for a relaxing holiday in Tuscany near the hill town of Cetona.
If you like to use the pool, the season for swimming is from June to September, but other times the water is too cold. The garden is lovely also in spring and autumn, with many places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Welcome back again soon.
Fantastic villa, thoroughly enjoyed staying there. Beautiful garden. Amazing view and ideal location
We had a wonderful week staying at the villa. It's located amongst the hills close to the little town of cetona. It's boasts amazing views across to chiusi. The villa had everything we needed and we took full advantage of the pool and the BBQ area. The villa is nestled amongst a beautiful well kept garden with lots of olive and fruit trees. It's within walking distance of cetona and the main roads are easily accessible. Inside the villa is beautiful, clean, spacious and decorated typically Tuscan with large vaulted roof with exposed timber beams and supporting tiles.
Despite the language barrier, Mario was very helpful and made us settle in well. The garden was lovely and a credit too his hard work.
It was such a fantastic holiday and we will be definitely be returning. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Thank you, Donovan, for this review of La Casella. We are all delighted that you found the villa clean, spacious and beautiful, and that you enjoyed your stay and took full advantage of the private pool, the garden and the BBQ.
I'm glad it was easy for you to walk to the town of Cetona, and get around locally. We look forward to your return to La Casella in the future.
Thanks and warm regards,
Zak, the manager.
Nous avons passé 2 semaines dans cette location, et je pense avoir compris ce qu' on entend par Dolce Vita ! La maison est très bien située, très bien équipée ( on ne manque de rien ) et le couple qui s en occupe est très gentil. Le jardin et la piscine sont identiques à l'annonce, la piscine est grande et agréable , bien exposée. Bref, nous n avons pas été décus, et pour moi qui ai du mal à m'attacher à un endroit autre que la Corse, j'ai eu du mal à partir et une seule envie : revenir vite ! J espère que nous aurons l occasion de louer à nouveau La Casella, car elle a un charme fou, et la Toscane est vraiment une super région.
