Photos and Description of this 8 bedroom holiday villa in Bibbiena - Casale Gressa

Wi-Fi, barbecue, quiet area, with all amenities and ideal for holidays with kids

The residence is divided into a main house and an annexe.

The main house has many wooden features and there are various kitchens and living rooms, which all have connecting doors, which can be opened, if you wish, to create your own apartment. Closing them allows for big groups and families to have complete privacy.

On the ground floor there is one living room with a marvellous gallery with garden furniture, located in the back of the house, where the sun shines in the morning, with views of the small lake and the beautiful virgin wildlife.

The same covered gallery is just below the ground floor, with garden furniture perfect for relaxing on.

The annexe building is used as a common room, where you will also find a kitchen.

In all the bedrooms are warm and comfortable spaces with armchairs and sofas. Satelite TV is all through the house, the common room also has a DVD player and a sound system, as well as a Wi-Fi internet connection available.

The first floor: you get here either via an internal staircase or external staircase from the garden.

There are 6 kitchens; all are a dream! On the first floor of the main house there are two, on the ground floor there are three, and in the additional house one. If you wish you can easily make your own dinners, breakfasts, baby food etc. The kitchen that gets the most use is in the adjoining building, with a direct exit to the garden, you can cook for everyone in front of the big covered terrace with tables and chairs for all.

All the kitchens are fully equipped, with four gas burners, electric oven, simple or double stainless steel fridges, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and German coffee machine. The shared kitchen also has a microwave, toaster and a water boiler; here there are 6 burners.

High chairs available upon request. The washing machine is in a separate room near to the pool.

Garden terrace

In the garden there is a brick pizza oven and a brick barbecue with running water. Next to this there is a covered patio with dining table and chairs, overlooking the pool; from here you can enjoy magnificent views of the picturesque surroundings. In the back part of the house there is another dining area, depending on whether you prefer to sit in the sun or the shade. Thanks to its hillside location the views from here span the whole valley with the small romantic villages, churches, castles and far reaching green meadows and farmland, the grey-green pattern of the olive groves and the vines perfectly lined up. At the end of the summer the colours begin to change, slender cypresses, oaks and walnut trees give shade, the Mediterranean herbs, shrubs and vibrant flowers make up a brilliant spectacle: a dream destination for unforgettable holidays.

Covered parking spaces are available inside the walled property with remote controlled garage doors for your privacy.

Sports facilities are available in the area.

The area is perfect for those who love walking, you can do so on your own terrain or venture out to stroll in the open air without any traffic. Mountain bikers come to Casentino for its great paths, curves, hills and mountain trails that are all around. The neighbouring town has tennis courts, the horse riding school is not very far away (8 km in the small town of Poppi) there is a golf course with a great location and panoramic restaurant. Fans of fishing can go to the nearby lake to catch carp and have a good time.

More information

The owners have placed a great deal of emphasis in respecting the house to the full whilst renovating it. It is on a farm. In order to live up to modern standards the whole building had to be carefully restored, along with the annexe. We built beautiful bathroom with hand painted tiles, facilities with top quality materials, gorgeous furniture, some antique, stunning paintings, lamps, top quality materials for the doors, windows, floors, well equipped kitchens - all without focussing on the price so that guests feel at home.

The central heating is controlled in such a way that each thermostat creates a different ambience; so the temperature can be individually regulated according to everyone´s needs.

The complex has received a Green Eco-Label from the E.U., valid in all the members of the European Union. The 1992 EU regulation (Regulation CEE 880/92) was put forward voluntarily and has gradually become a reference point for consumers that want to buy products and services that respect the environment and are committed to reducing pollution.

The label is given to those products and services that have the least environmental impact when compared to other similar products. The recipients of the Eco-labels from the E.U. should be able to identify the most ecological and sustainable products.

This spectrum covers cleaning products, appliances, textiles, lubricants, paints, coatings, places to eat and camp sites.

Information about excursions and the surrounding area.

The holiday rental is part of Bibbiena, the biggest city in Casentino, a unique wooded region in the centre of Tuscany.

As yet undiscovered by tourist hordes, you will live here amongst the locals but not at too great a distance should you want to visit many beautiful cities and art of Tuscany. Arezzo is 30 minutes away by car, getting to Florence takes about an hour, Siena, San Gimignano, Cortona, Perugia along with many others are possible day trips, the area also offers a lot of other ways to spend the days of your wonderful holidays and try new things too. Visit the Camaldoli Monastery, a place of pilgrimage and La Verna Monastery, made famous by Saint Francis of Asisi, enjoy the more romantic parts of the smaller cities of Stia, Prato Vecchio, Poppi Rassini - castles, churches, secluded places, small alleyways and typical osteries. This as well as restaurants, ice cream parlours, pizzerias, many small shops and of course supermarkets and street markets for all tastes.

The first weekend of every month there is a huge antiques market in Arezzo, a colourful flourish in the old town, many different exhibitors and a great ambience, well-worth paying a visit - you can sometimes even find a bargain.


Although the house is surrounded by green areas, the neighbouring town is only a few minutes away, in Bibbiena, where there are all different kinds of shops, banks, post office, cafés, bars, supermarkets and a grand modern shopping centre which will satisfy any demand.

We shall send you detailed information about all that is worth seeing.
