About the property

Sleeps Up To 16 Guests, Beautiful Location Close To Florence, Large Gardens

The large Casale Giotto with private pool is a traditional Tuscan villa able to accommodate comfortably up to 16 guests in 8 bedrooms and providing fantastic panoramic views over the surrounding hills and vineyards. The villa is perfectly located on the hills surrounding Mugello Valley (with its famous F1 circuit), a few steps away from the house where the well known painter Giotto was born, and just 30 minutes drive away from Florence, offering unbeatable value for money in one of the most sought after locations of Tuscany.

The villa is set over 2 floors and is surrounded by extensive gardens with lawn, flowers and private swimming pool. The caretakers, a lovely local couple with deep knowledge of the area and Tuscan food, live unobstructively in one small apartment with independent entrance located at the back of the property, not overlooking the private grounds by the swimming pool to guarantee the maximum privacy to the guests. Yet they are always on hand should the guests require cooking classes, homemade fresh food, chef service or tourist information.

On the ground floor there are a spacious lounge (equipped with fireplace, sofas, armchairs, tables where all the guests can dine together, free of charge wi-fi internet connection), a fully equipped kitchen, a family shower room. The 8 bedrooms (2 doubles, 6 twins) are located on the upper floor and provide beautiful views from the windows over the surrounding vineyards. The bedrooms are furnished in classic Tuscan style and provide attractive features such as terracotta floors and beamed ceilings. On the upper floor there are also 4 family bathrooms, one with bath + shower over and three with shower.

Outside, Casale Giotto features a fantastic shaded dining area with barbecue and extensive grounds where the swimming pool is located (the swimming pool is curently being built and will be ready by the end of March 2016). The private swimming pool (with no neighbouring properties overlooking) measures 8m x 4m and is equipped with sunbeds and parasols. The swimming pool provides beautiful unobstructed views over the surrounding hills up to the Mount Falterona, where the springs of Arno River are located. This is a truly idyllic setting for relaxing days under the Tuscan sun, accompanied by a glass of Chianti wine! The swimming pool is open from the 15th of April to the 30th of October.

Tuscan Haven

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering at this villa from September 24th to October 5th, grape picking time.

What a beautiful sight, we walked out to the garden area on the first day and fell in love. The photo's on the website are what you get, we could have stayed here forever.

Our family, all 16 of us agree the villa, the location and the price were a great combination, and made for an excellent holiday.

The villa was clean well appointed and spacious, even though there were 16 of us we could all find our own space if needed, the outdoor dinning area was a real bonus, as was the pool, even though by this time of year it was a bit cool, or as we liked to call it refreshing.

Beautiful House in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family aged 3 to 75 really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful house and pool. Plenty of space indoors and outdoors and was great to have such wonderful views and the opportunity to eat outside for every meal under the pergola.

The town was not far away, but would recommend a car to get around and make the most of what the region has to offer. We also got the train to Florence which was only 45 mins away.

Any issue we had was dealt with quickly by the on-site house managers (despite our lack of Italian and theirs of English!) and the owner was also helpful with local advice.

Only suggestion that came from one of our group was to have a microwave as would have been helpful for the little ones, but apart from that everything was great!
