About the property

This farmhouse is part of a group of other 5 homes and is unique in that it has three different terraces overlooking South East, North West and East for enjoying leisurly time outdoors at the different times of day. The large pool is just across the front terrace only 25 yards from the home.

In order to reach Casina di Arceno one drives along an impressive historical cypresses alley 1 kilometer long planted more than 2 centuries ago! Staying at Casina di Arceno gives the idea of being away from civilization yet comfortably close to Castelnuovo Berardenga (4 km), and San Gusmè (2 km) with all the services you may need and only a 20 minutes car drive from Siena.

This country home is set on 2 levels. There are three covered private parking spaces. The main entrance lands in a very ample kitchen very well equipped, with a large wooden square table that sits 8 people.

Besides the kitchen, the ground floor includes:

- a big master bedroom, with bathroom en-suite.

- a dining room with access to the East looking terrace, which can be reached also from the master bedroom.

- a large and luminous living room, with 4 door-windows that connects with the large and most wonderful South-East looking terrace, with open views on the Tuscan hills up to Siena. The living room hosts a large double sofa-bed (1m60) that sleeps 2.

The first floor includes:

- a double bedroom with a large king size bed or two twin beds and bathroom en-suite

- the second large master bedroom with bathroom en-suite and a washing/drying machine.

In summary, the house has three double bedrooms (king size beds or twin beds) each with a bathroom en-suite, a large living room with a sofa bed for two, a large kitchen with a large table, and a dining room, and three fantastic terraces, pool and three covered parking spaces. The house is very pleasant and confortable.

About Liliane and Elie Vulfs

We have purchased this property in order to enjoy our family vacations in Tuscany together with our daughter and our son and their respective families and friends! We are excited to keep making this property our home and every short vacation we have had so far has kept building wonderful memories. We trully love the location and the setting and we want to share this passion with everybody that will stay at our home.

Liliane and Elie Vulfs purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Liliane and Elie Vulfs chose Castelnuovo Berardenga

We loved this property because of the characteristic of the three terraces and the three nice bedrooms each with a bathroom en-suite. Our son and daughter are now adults and each with a life partner. The way the house is set up it allows for three couples for each to have their own privacy and bathroom en-suite. Besides, the environment and the views are wonderful.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Casina is immersed in a unique historical setting, in an estate that dates back to Etruscan times. The surrounding atmosphere and views are incredibly beautiful and harmonious, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, yet the property is 5 minutes away from everything you might need from civilization. Besides, this part of Tuscany is just fantastic, with great nature and plenty of typical and beautiful historical villages.

A lovely villa in the perfect setting!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this villa with another couple, dear friends of ours. We met them in Siena as we were traveling from different regions and found the villa which is located about 20 minutes away. We were warmly greeted and shown to the property which is up an amazingly scenic, Cypress-lined driveway. Lovely home with views all around and three terraces for which to sit out on and soak up all the regions beauty. We had lots of room to spread out in and found the kitchen well-stocked. We ate in for breakfast and dinner and found a nearby coop grocer close by stocked full of whatever we needed. We enjoyed this home and it's location was perfect for touring all the little hill towns in the Chianti and Tuscan region. I only wish the warmth of the summer would have lasted a bit longer, so that we could've enjoyed the beautiful pool. We loved seeing the sights of Rome and Florence on our two week vacation to Italy, but this was our favorite, getting away from the busy cities and enjoying a wonderful, relaxing 5 days with friends in a beautiful setting and home. What a treat!!! Thank you for sharing your home with us. We hope to return. Jan and Randy Reeves

Beautiful and serene

  • 5 of 5

The fabulous La Casina at Villa Arceno is a large farmhouse located on a beautiful Tuscan vineyard, and everything one could need for a vacation stay is included -- large bedrooms, a full kitchen, lovely side and back patio decks, and gorgeous views in every direction. The pool is exquisite, and of course the surroundings are all we could have asked for. The living room is spacious and comfortable. The house stays pleasantly cool, even though it was quite warm during our stay there -- the house breathes! We used only the air-conditioner in the main bedroom, at night.

The most salient feature of the location is the quiet and peaceful ambience of the environment - you immediately unwind and begin to relax. Owners Elie and Liliane have thought of everything. There was nothing we were interested in doing that wasn't mentioned in some way in the "Welcome" book, and much more that we couldn't possibly do in the course of our short stay there. Sabrina, the property manager, was wonderful, meeting us in San Gusmé, showing us in the door, and opening the house for us. She even brought us a little something for dinner on our first night, and the welcoming basket of fresh fruit and a good red wine from the area was appreciated by these weary travelers. The next time we saw Sabrina was at check-out time; though she gave us her contact information and a cellphone hardwired to reach her, we had no need -- everything at La Casina worked as described.

We were sad to leave, but the memories will linger a long time. Thank you, Elie and Liliane, so much for everything, we have enjoyed our stay at your lovely Casina in Tuscany beyond measure.
