About the property

Old farmhouse of 16th Century completely renovated with apartments and pool

The Residence in The Valley of Etruscan Princes

Il Casale, a residence out of a building of the year 500 sits in front of the towers, the domes the green and the sky of Cortona, a city of ancient origins, often visited by the ex French president Mitterand, and today by the University of Georgia (UGA). During august it is the chosen location for the National Antiques Showroom, where for the occasion, in the old rooms of Palazzo Casali and Palazzo Vagnotti, all the most important Italian exhibitors gather.

The rural complex is situated nearby the San Pietro a Cegliolo neighbourhood. Today it is a very comfortable and accommodating Residence, hidden in the silence of a spectacular and suggestive creation of the nature. It is laid out around a huge garden and the mother tower which overlooks the main building, which is also the oldest and still maintains the original features, like the double slope roof and the external stairway with a wide landing for the middle floor access.

Behind one of the complexes’ wings, finds room on over an hectare of green grass, the swimming pool which is for guests use only. Built with the most modern and efficient techniques its size is 16 by 8 meters. Furnished with deck chairs, comfortable pillows, umbrellas, showers and everything to help relax and fun for the kids, while watching Cortona’s skyline.

The garden is one of the most beautiful features of the complex. Very well grown and cared, shines with plenty of different flowers varieties and plants which give colour to the spectacular green English carpet. Here you’ll find the tables and chairs for breakfast and dinner in a relaxing environment.

The residence is made of 10 apartments, of which 8 sleep 4, one sleep 3, and one sleep 2. They all provide a stylish and elegant solution, floors and ceilings made with old cotto tiles and antique furniture aging around the year ‘800. Everything carefully planned and put together in respect of the most modern way of living. The apartments have two bedrooms, some of which with two double beds, some other with one double bed and a room with single beds, bathroom with shower and the living room with a cooking corner (fire spots, electrical oven, fridge, double sink). The general feeling is of a relaxing and “antique” luxurious environment.

The bedrooms are especially thought in the way they’ve been furnished. Antique beds (‘700 and ‘800), carpets who match the period of the furniture, practical closets also from the ‘800 style. Everything is planned to match with the floors and the ceilings.

Apartment sleep 4:

two bedrooms with two double beds or one double bed and two single beds, bathroom with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped.

Apartment sleep 3: one big bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, two bathrooms with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped.

Apartment sleep 2:

one bedroom with a double bed, one bathroom with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped.

Possibility to have additional beds on request.


Every apartment has its own external space furnished with garden chairs and table, and inside provides Satellite TV, air conditioning/heating direct phone line. WI-FI CONNECTION

"Nous avons, mon mari et ...

  • 5 of 5

"Nous avons, mon mari et nos trois enfants passé une très belle semaine à la résidence Il Casale à Cortona. La propriété tout en pierres est superbe, les jardins sont très spacieux, très verts, fleuris et sont très bien entretenus ainsi que la grande et belle piscine qui est le coeur de la résidence, et la joie de tous! C''est une résidence du 16° siecle, donc "rustique", je déconseille à ceux qui souhaitent le confort moderne... Vous êtes dans la belle et douce campagne Toscane, c''est un havre de paix et il règne à Il Casale une atmosphère particulière, douce et appaisante, intemporelle, dont tout le monde là bas est imprégné... La seule chose vraiment qui peut être améliorée est l''équipement "ustensiles" dans la cuisine, mais ceci est peut-être lié au fait que nous avions réservé tard et le seul appartement disponible était une appart pour quatre personnes, nous étions cinq....Concernant les moustiques... Oui il y en a comme à Rome d''ailleurs et comme chez nous qui vivons dans le sud de la France, donc... se munir de produits anti moustiques est logique et préférable.... Une mention spéciale à Alessandra, la maîtresse des lieux qui est si belle, tout à fait charmante, à votre écoute et toujours disponible, ainsi qu''à Riccardo qui parle un français impeccable! Je vous conseille également leurs produits, vin et huile d''olive qu''ils produisent eux même sur place, que nous avons ramenés en France et qui sont délicieux. Bref..! une adresse et valeur sûre que nous vous recommandons si vous désirez passer des vacances authentiques et magiques sous le beau soleil de Toscane.... Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir!"

"logement trés bien situé.beaucoup de visite à faire à 30 km autour.coopérative agricole à proximité ou l'on peut acheter fruits et légumes délicieux et bon marché.piscine magnifique.accueil trés chaleureux du propriétaire Vittorio.un seul bémol:se munir de produits antimoustique(ils sont féroces!)mais ce n'est pas spécifique à cette location,il semblerait qu'il y en ait dans toute l'italie du nord."

  • 4 of 5

les + : l'accueil, la climatisation dans le logement, la propreté, la piscine.

les - : peu d'intimité dans le jardinet attenant à la maison en raison de la proximité des autres locations et du manque d'isolement des jardins

location bien située pour visiter le sud de la Toscane.

After a few kilometers, take the Cortona exit which brings you in the vicinity of the Abbacy of Farneta. (The abbacy is an historically significant sight to visit both for its 9th century crypt and for its museum of archeology and paleontology.) Continue through the valley, following the signs for Cortona until you arive at Camucia.

then, instead of climbing toward Cortona, take the State Road 71 in the direction of Arezzo. Once past Sodo (with its Etruscan tombs), you will come upon a view of Residence IL Casale on the right.

Ceck in from 3 to 7 pm and apartments must be left before 10:00 am You can make midweek stays, if you expect it, in low / mid season and only on request.
