About the property

Casale di Villore

Il Casale di Villore is an ochre stone farmhouse, medieval in origin, situated in the heart of the Tuscan countryside and enjoys a hilltop position from which the pastoral beauty of the countryside is in full view. After painstaking renovations, Villore’s six apartments are now available for holiday rental, each named after a different type of grape in honor of the region’s wine culture. We invite you to pass your holiday immersed in the rhythm and beauty of the Tuscan landscape.

All of the apartments are furnished with antiques and have been decorated by the owner himself who has charmingly combined traditional Tuscan elements with the spaciousness, light and airiness that hallmark modern design.

SANGIOVETO

A large and elegant apartment, Sangioveto’s three floors are comprised of a fully equipped kitchen and large living room with fireplace, two bedrooms with en suite baths, a children’s bedroom and a magnificent tower suite with panoramic views of the countryside. A private wine cellar, stocked with a selection of Tuscan wines, is at the exclusive disposition of the guests of this apartment.

CARDISCO

Cardisco, casually furnished in comfortable Tuscan style, is located on the first floor of the villa complex. The apartment includes two double bedrooms, with beds in wrought iron, a bathroom with shower, kitchen and living room.

MORELLINO

A private external staircase leads to this cozy apartment, ideal for two guests. The country kitchen with its antique marble countertops and sink, opens into a small living area, spacious enough for a single bed for couples with a young child. A double bedroom with wardrobe and a bathroom with shower complete this apartment.

PRUGNOLO

Apartment Prugnolo encompasses the entire ground floor of the main structure. The sunny kitchen is framed by a brick archway that leads into a large living room with fireplace and two single beds. Prugnolo’s double bedroom, located just across the corridor from the bathroom with shower, has an antique wardrobe and matching dresser.

GRANAIO

Located in what was once Villore’s granary, apartment Granaio’s most outstanding feature is its beautifully furnished living room with fireplace, a large dining area, perfect for long evenings of entertaining with friends or family, and a dependence with a double bed. A kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom and a children’s bedroom complete the accommodations.

Great location, historic property and comfortable amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four adults spent four nights in the Frantoio Apartment at Casale di Villore. The accommodations were as rustic and comfortable as we had anticipated. The overall property has marvelous scenic views of Tuscany. The location was central to the towns and sights we wanted to see.

Above all else, Antonio was quite helpful ensuring that our overall experience, on and off the property, was excellent.

I heartily recommend this property.

We loved our stay. Antonio was extremely helpful. He helped me with replacing our rental car when it broke down. We hope to come back!

Fabulous villa in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (age 31) stayed here with our five month old. We had a brilliant time - the views were fabulous, the property was clean, quiet, authentic and we didn't want to leave! Also a fab location for visiting popular towns in Tuscany ... Would highly recommend!

Ideal setting surrounded by spectacular countryside.

  • 4 of 5

The property suited us in that we were in a rural location, but within close proximity of many beautiful villages and hill towns to explore. The accessibility of PAM and COOP supermarkets, and rail links were also a bonus.

On site, the pool, table tennis, and boule provided opportunity to relax and play in idyllic well-maintained surroundings. Our accommodation did not disappoint, although an oven (instead of a microwave) would have been (for us) a useful addition. Sitting in the beautiful gardens in the evening watching the sun go down was a particular highlight.

Thank you for your efficiency and friendliness pre and during our stay, ensuring that we had a wonderful holiday.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice rooms, clean and nicely decorated. In our case two bedrooms/bathrooms and comfortable living room with adequately equipped kitchen. The garden was great with nice views, swimming pool, table tennis and balls pitch, all well maintained. May feel a bit isolated but you will find a restaurant in 5mins drive staying open till late.

Only point parking lots could be a bit wider or protections to be put in place as car rental companies will charge the earth for scratches.

Overall a great stay in beautiful Tuscany. Thanks Antonio and Camilla!

An idyllic Tuscan Villa. Truley in the heart of Chianti with close proximity to key places to visit.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the renovated olive press. A stand alone 2 bedroom 2 bath ideal for a family of 4 or as in our case 2 couples. One bath is en suite and the other downstairs which is a bit inconvenient and it has an awkward shower. Ok if you are really short!

The grounds are spectacular. Literally on a Tuscan hill with an infinity swimming pool. We would stay there on a return trip. Antonio and Camilla were very helpful with eating tips etc. Ciao.
