About the property

Casale di Villore

Perched on a hilltop above fields of vineyards and forests of regal cypress trees stands an ancient farmhouse in Tuscan countryside dating to 1200 and built in the ochre stone so indicative of the Tuscan style. Here, in the very heart of the Chianti, the stress of everyday life recedes into mere memory, replaced by the gentle rush of olive branches swaying in the breeze and the heady perfume of wild flowers. Centrally located near the cities of Florence and Siena, Il Casale di Villore and its six newly renovated apartments invite you to live the Tuscan dream in this genteel country setting. Villore is as lovely outside as it is inside. Relaxing at poolside, guests can sip a cool drink while taking in the breathtaking view of the valley and the distant outline of charming medieval villages on the horizon.

About Antonio Pagliai

I am Antonio, the owner of IL CASALE DI VILLORE. I was born in Siena and I have walked this land for many years and each time I still see something new. The time of day or year does not matter. I love music, paint ...that's why I love Tuscany. Here, in this land, rich with history and tradition, my guest will have my suggestions to enjoy a great vacation in Tuscany.

Antonio Pagliai purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Countryside living

  • 5 of 5

We arrived a little later than we had originally had calculated, but Antonio patiently waited for us, then gave us the tour of our home and the property. The home was very comfortable and our group of 7 never felt cramped. The kitchen was large enough to hold a table for us to eat at, we used that one instead of the formal dining area. We had a cooking class at the home one evening, which was a lot of fun.

The nearest town is Pogibbons, it was 8 winding kilometers away, we'd go there to pick up supplies at the grocery store. Usually we'd have lunch at one of the.small picturesque towns, drive through vineyards and making it home in time for cocktails and to watchthe sun set on the Tuscan hillside

We had a great experience.

What a fabulous stay at Casale Di Villore!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was all we hoped for and more. There were six adults and we stayed in the Sangioveto apartment. The facilities, grounds, and views were superb. Antonio was a great host and made several recommendations about our travel in and around Tuscany including recommending a vineyard for a tour and lunch and arranging for tickets for the Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence. We would enjoy our coffee overlooking the Tuscan countryside in the morning and enjoyed a glass or two of wine while watching the sun set in the evening.

I would definitely recommend Casale Di Villore for anyone wanting a beautiful Tuscan villa experience.

Casale Di Villore Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The villa/ property was absolutely beautiful. we rented the 4 bedroom 3 bath villa, We felt so at home and the way he had it decorated you really new you were in Italy. The grounds over looked the Chianti region, the view were magnificent. i high recommend the villa. the location is perfect for where ever you want to go. We went to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Gerve ETC. There were wine farms just up the road from where we were. We will most likely stay there again on our return trip, we actually can't wait to go back. It was a vacation the take's top billing..

Stunning location and property by a great family!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning location, beautiful property managed by a great and lovely family!

Excellent private pool between well maintained olive trees with unbelievable views.

Not much negative to say, except perhaps that there is no AC (would have been nice in the bedrooms), which makes you keep the windows open at night causing lots of bugs to enter the rooms, one night we had even a bat flying around in the room which kept us awake untill it flew out of the window again after an hour.

The bathrooms are small in particular the showers (too small), no soap on the sinks, there could have been more eye for detail and luxury to confirm the very luxurous location.

The building (we stayed in the main 3 story appartment) is 800 years old and the top floor bedroom has incredible views which can be enjoyed even lying in bed..

The owner family is super nice and inviting and one night they all baked pizza's in a traditional way in the hundreds years old oven in the courtyard for all the people who stayed at their property, absolutely great party on a hot summer night, thank you Antonio and his nephew who did the baking!!

The location is amazing on the top of a hill surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, many places to visit like San Gimignano, Siena and Casttellina in Chianti, and much more are within 30-45 minutes drives.

Horse riding is also available within 20 minutes, we made a guided tour through the hills and forests which was amazing.

We would highly recommend this property to anyone, and though not cheap we think it is absolutely worth the money.
