Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Val di Cecina - I Casali

Two spacious apartments,very nicely furnished with heated pool

We live in a stone house built in the 1850s, in Micciano near Volterra (Pisa). In our estate there are two apartments for rent, for lovers of the peace and beauty.

• Heart of Tuscany

• Heated swimming pool

• On the border of a natural reserve

• Wifi, internet connection

• Mountain bikes

• Hiking

• Estate olive oil, certified organic

• Near beaches and Tuscan medieval towns

Volterra, San Gemignano, Firenze, Lucca and Pisa. We are located next to a natural reserve of 5.000 hectares (12.500 Acres).

On the property you can find your favourite spot, overlooking the Tuscan hills sitting under a large holm oak or a juniper tree just gazing at the olive grove. You can walk along the trail to the spring of sulphurous water, passing by the pond where the small wild animals come to drink. If you are lucky you may see a turtle along the way.

We want to pay respect to the nature and its resources. Our olive oil production is in the process of obtaining organic farming certification, and regarding the tourist apartments we’re preparing for the Ecolabel approval.

A Wonderful Tuscan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A great place to retreat into the Tuscan hill. Clean, spacious, and well-maintained. Owners very helpful and friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for a low-key retreat, where nature can be enjoyed along with the world of Tuscan wine!

Toskana pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir möchten uns auf diesem Wege nochmals ganz herzlich bei Eva und Pietro für den wunderschönen Urlaub bedanken. Vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag haben wir uns in ihrem liebevoll gepflegten Anwesen i Casali wohlgefühlt. Für Essens- und Ausflugtipps standen sie uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite.

Sogar als wir bei der Heimfahrt Probleme bei einer Tankstelle hatten, haben die beiden dies für uns geregelt.

Für einen ruhigen, entspannten Urlaub inmitten toskanischer Hügel mit eigenem Pool sehr zu empfehlen.

Ruth, Tom mit Anton (7) und Leo (5)

Beautiful, relaxing agriturisimo in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon after driving from Rome. We were struck by the absolute beauty of the scenic environment and the beautiful restored farm house that was to be our place for the next six days. Pietro and Eva were warm and had provided us with a bottle of wine (with plenty more that was in the room for purchase). The appliances were easy to use (but we really didn't want to cook!). The property was clean and comfortable. But even before we arrived, Pietro kept us informed and gave us information about places we would likely want to visit. Though the location is a remote village near the coast, access to Florence, Pisa, etc. were relatively easy. The close proximity to Volterra and Cecina made it ideal to experience the charm of Tuscany. The farmhouse is located on top of a hill with an amazing panorama. If you want a retreat from the hustle and bustle, this is an ideal spot. I kept thinking that this is the place to "write my book?. Restaurants near by were marvelous. In nearby Celine, we had the best bruschetta ever and pasta that I could eat every day. I would be happy to endorse this place for a romantic retreat. This was where we celebrated our anniversary.and my wife was a very happy person (she even got to hold a 20,000 euro purse at the Gucci museum in Florence. Fortunately, there was no pressure to buy it!

A relaxing time in a Tuscan hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We received a lovely welcome from Pietro and Eva, not to mention the bottle of olive oil and the fully stocked wine rack - both their own produce. A brilliant place to stay to get away from it all by relaxing around the gardens and the pool. Or easy to take a trip out to see the Tuscan sights. Holiday was topped off by a trip to the local osteria - just excellent welcome and food, even though they did not speak English nor us Italian.

A little paradise in Toscana !

  • 5 of 5

We came from Lyon (France) for 2 weeks with our 3 daughters in this beautiful farmhouse.

Placed on the top of a mountain, there is an incredible landscape all around with cypress, olivier, mountains... So charming, so beautiful and relaxing !

Pietro and Eva are welcoming, so kind, friendly and so discrete too. They have a nice dog Cora (she never barks) and a funny cat. Lots of fun for the children :-)

The swimming pool is very nice, its size is perfect. One part has a good height for children who can not swim.

The property is not very close to the main cities but not too far. We have visited Sienne, Voltera, San Gimignano, Pise and Lucca : It is easy to go to these cities just for one day and come back at the end of the afternoon for a swim !

What can we say more ? Nothing bad, it was so good and peaceful vacation !

Grazie mille Pietro e Eva.

Nous sommes venus pour 2 semaines avec nos 3 filles dans cette belle ferme.

Placée sur le sommet d'une montagne, il y a un paysage incroyable tout autour avec des cyprès, oliviers, montagnes ... si charmant, si beau et relaxant!

Pietro et Eva sont accueillants, si gentil, sympathiques et très discrèts aussi. Ils ont une belle chienne Cora (elle n'a jamais aboie) et un chat coquin. Les enfants se sont bien amusés avec eux :-)

La piscine est très agréable, sa taille est parfaite. Une partie a une bonne hauteur pour les enfants qui ne savent pas nager.

La propriété n'est pas très proche des principales villes, mais pas trop loin non plus. Nous avons visité Sienne, Volterra, San Gimignano, Pise et Lucca: C'est facile d'aller visiter ces villes juste pour un jour et revenir à la fin de l'après-midi pour une baignade !

Que pouvons-nous dire de plus ? Rien de négatif, les vacances étaient si bonnes et paisibles !

Merci beaucoup Pietro et Eva.

An absolute heavenly place

  • 5 of 5

I Casali is the perfect place if you want to relax and recharge your batteries. Everything is overwhelmingly beautiful; The scenery, the house, the garden with all the herbs and flowers.

We stayed mostly by the pool at the house, but a couple of nights we went for dinner in Micciano and Libbiano. There is one restaurant in each village and they both serve exellent food. A trip to Volterra is a must. A medieval town with lots of cosy restaurants and boutiques. We had a wonderful week and thank you Eva and Pietro for providing such excellent service.
