“5 Star villa set high in the hills above a gorgeous Tuscan valley”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

I cannot say enough about this beautiful home or the family who owns and manages it! Dad "Gigi" met us in the small piazza in Ponte a Poppi so that he could lead us up the winding road to the villa. The drive up there was rustic and gorgeous, up higher and higher through woods, grape vines and olive groves. Once we got to the house, my whole family was speechless. It is picture perfect! You could immediately see that every inch of it is taken care of with love, and a keen attention to detail. In the week we spent there, I found new and interesting details every day. I am going to add photos to this review because nothing I could say will do this house justice. There were 9 of us, and we were all able to sleep comfortably, have private space and share amazing meals at the many dining tables throughout the house. The 1st morning I woke up there, I opened my window and was treated to the sound of church bells and a valley view that I could look at for the rest of my life and never get bored. Everything you need is there and whatever isn't, is a text away to the family- they took care of everything immediately. Every morning, fresh bread, pastries and anything else we asked for was delivered to our door to save us from having to go down the hill for breakfast. My brother in law especially enjoyed his morning talks with Gigi- they speak different languages, but always managed to communicate well. He has tremendous respect for him. We alternated enjoying the house for the day and going on day trips to Cortona, Florence, Arezzo and various wineries- nothing more than 1.5 hours away and always a beautiful drive. Podere di Pomaio "green" winery is a MUST! The castle in Poppi (which is visible every day and night from the house), is fascinating; built in the 1200's- be sure to make the climb to the bell tower- the view is breathtaking. And Cortona was a dream- the unassuming Basilica di Santa Margherita and Fortezza del Girifalco don't look like much from the outside, but do step in- they were magical. In the church, I was moved to tears with it's beauty and reverence and standing on the fort's walls affords a view like you've never seen before. So much beauty and rich culture at the villa and around it! If you're looking for a centrally located, peaceful garden of Eden in Tuscany, please stay at this home and get to know this wonderful family.

“Beauty beyond description and total tranquility”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

It is hard to describe how beautiful the setting of this wonderful house is - the views are breathtaking, and the many fantastic outdoor spaces make this the perfect place to stay. We spent a week here with our young kids and are pretty sure we will never stay somewhere quite like this again. The pool, hammock, many gardens and terraces and places to sit and enjoy the silence and scenery, the fruit and olive trees all around, were made all the more special by the fantastic warm and helpful hosts. It is pretty remote but with a car this is a great place to combine time relaxing, reading, and just being, with visits to beautiful villages and towns in the region. It is the kind of place people write books about. I hope we are lucky enough to return one day.

“Amazing views from a beautiful Tuscan home .”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We can not say enough about the hospitality and warmth we felt at Podere La Casina. We were four adults and four children. Yes the ride up is daunting, the views very much worth it! And the ride gets easier after a few attempts. The loving family that opened up their home to us could not have been more accommodating. The children loved the pool and us the outdoor dining space and stunning views. It is remote so you must plan accordingly.The home is clean and well maintained. The kids had a great time playing hide and seek through out the expansive home and property. If you are looking for a retreat away this Villa is perfect! We made pizza one night in the outdoor brick oven, facilitated by Gigi the owner. The children looked forward to Gigi's morning visits and the basket of goodies on arrival and pastries Gigi brought later in the week were a special treat. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this beautiful space for family and friends looking for time together in a beautiful setting.

“Perfect Tuscany Setting”
Reviewed 29 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We traveled with a group of ten to visit Tuscany and stay at Podere La Casina. Nicolo, Gigi, Stella and Anna were a wonderful and warm welcoming family who catered to all of our needs. We asked if they could prepare a meal on our first night because we arrived late and would not have time to cook. The meal of lasagna, pork roast with roasted potatoes and torte for desert was as good as any five star restaurant, they also greeted us later in the week with a welcome basket of cured meats, cheese, bread, wine and a desert tray.
The villa was set in the hills with a view of Poppi and the surrounding Tuscan country side, visions I will never forget. The road back and fourth from the villa to Ponte a Poppi for shopping and all of our day trips was a little challenging, but after you negotiated it once or twice it was easy. The villa was clean and comfortable with plenty of room for all ten of us.
I cannot say enough about the beauty of Tuscany and Podere la Casina and would certainly go back again.

“Breathtaking views - lovely house and gardens”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Four weeks ago our party of 6 adults and a toddler stayed in La casina to spend a lovely holiday together. For a week we enjoyed the breathtaking views, the immaculate gardens with almond and peach trees, the large pool and of course the villa. There was more than enough space for everyone and it is really safe for children to run around the premises.
Gigi came round every morning to clean the pool, provide us with fresh bread and answer all our questions. He only speaks Italian, but his son speaks excellent English. This was my fifth villa holiday, and La Casina was by far the best house. It is fully equipped for 12+ people (plates, wine glasses,chairs etc, ) and there are plenty of seating areas to spend the day. A special mention to the drive to the villa: It is long and at one point a bit tricky, but you get rewarded by the view. The villa really is high on a hill and quite secluded, but if that is what you're after, this is the right place for you.
We can totally recommend La Casina and want to thank Gigi and his son for their warm welcome. Gigi - sei un angelo!
