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..

Fantastic villa, thoroughly enjoyed staying there. Beautiful garden. Amazing view and ideal location

  • 5 of 5

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.

MAGNIFIQUE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

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.
