4 of us stayed in one of the apartments for 6 nights towards the end of June. The apartment was very spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a full well equipped kitchen and lounge room so very adequate space for 4 people. The grounds are stunning with plenty of places to sit outside including very nice pool with plenty... More

I just returned from Italy, which included a 5 night stay at Residence Il Casale, with 3 other friends. We were welcomed when we arrived late at night by Mr. Victorio, who was very hospitable even though we hardly speak any Italian. Alessandra was also very helpful beforehand by answering emails with questions and when we got there. The apartment... More

Had five days relaxing here and self catered throughout. Our suite was well enough appointed to allow us to cook what we planned - maybe could have done with some more crockery and glassware though. We had super private terrace at rear just yards from shared swimming pool. Gardens were well kept and a pleasure to wander in. Reception was... More

We selected Residence Il Casale for its location and great price. We were not disappointed. This was the ideal location to explore nearby Cortona or any of the several wonderful hilltop towns in Tuscany and Umbria. Our host Vittorio was personable and very helpful. Our room consisted of a living area with couches and dining table, a kitchenette with stove,... More

This is a charming and lovely property. Our apartment was lovely and tastefully furnished. It was spotlessly clean. The gardens are lovely. I simply cant understand why another reviewer complained about the grass.. its a hot country and the gardens are maintained in a rustic style. I especially admired the owners tomato and courgette patch! The pool is wonderful and... More

Il Casale is a a collection of villas and apartments spread around some lovely gardens. Lots of shade, good sized pool but few other facilities. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and is great for relaxing. We took a toddler and parents should be aware that the 2 bed villas have open, wooden stair cases which our daughter took a... More

We are quite disappointed in reading this review, since our Residence is confused with an hotel yet again. Il Casale is not an hotel and it hasn't the same features of an hotel. Il Casale is a countryside self-catering apartment complex. Mostly all of our competitors (that doesn't mean hotels, of course) doesn't even offer a Reception, whereas our office... More

I stayed with my two kids, 14 and 10, for 6 days in July 2013. My guess is that il casale has fallen on hard times: there is a space that used to be a bar/café, but is now sort of a storage place; the flowers in the planters are in bloom and watered, but the grass on the rest... More

Dear guest, concerning your review, I feel disappointed from what you wrote: maybe you were not enough aware of what a Residence is. First of all, you can easily read more recent reviews. We are not used to ask our guests for good reviews, even if they are happy with their stay here. That's why all the review you can... More

We stayed at Residence Il Casale in August 2010. 1 week cost just £500 each (inc. flights to Pisa and car hire) through Expedia. The Residence is set in lovely grounds with around 8 individual cottages. When we stayed there were only a few families around and some days we ended up having the swimming pool (which is again is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
SELF CATERING APARTMENTS WITH POOL NEAR CORTONA.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.
