In stark contrast to visit to nearby winery which was newly renovated, large scale, even corporate, Podere II Casale would never be described as slick. Homey, dog and peacocks roaming about, one wouldn't describe areas beyond main building as manicured - its a real farm. Wonderful dinner and cheese sampling, gorgeous hilltop location, but what sets it apart is welcoming,... More

When I came to write the review I was SHOCKED that it was ranked so low based on our experience.Keep in mind we did not stay here we just came for the tour and lunch. Sandra our host was full of energy as she proudly showed us around her farm. Sandra and her husband (the cheese maker) run the farm.... More

We had a tour here with our group (two teenage girls, three grandmothers and my husband and me) with the owner. He was very informative and passionate about his work. We learned about his sheep, the cheese making process, some farm operations and more. I can't imagine a more beautiful location...then you add the tasting at the end and it... More

This farm was a highlight for them. They enjoyed the beauty of the location as we as Sampling the cheeses but they really loved visiting the animals... More

Our B & B host recommended this place to us for dinner, saying we wouldn't be disappointed. She was right. This is an unusual restaurant setting, in that it's connected with a campground. As we drove in, we went past 2 boars, some enthusiastic dogs, a cat, a peacock...definitely not your usual dining experience! We met the owners, a Swiss... More

We were taken here by our tour guide from Tuscany sunshine tours and it was a wonderful treat. It Wasbeautiful setting. A real working farm where they grow and make everything they serve. Waitstaff was perfect as was the food and wine. We dined under a grapevine arbor overlooking Tuscany. What a perfect location with wonderful food. This has been... More

We have spent a lot of time in this part of Tuscany the past few years - so we were very pleasantly surprised to find something this good that we hadn't come across in previous trips. Since percorino is such an important part of the culture in this region we thought it would be interesting to visit a working farm... More

We were traveling with our 3, 12 and 14-year-old children throughout Tuscany and wanted to find an activity to entertain our youngest, as she was a trooper during a few long days of travel and tours. We were recommended to visit Podere Il Casale by the owner of the beautiful villa we stayed at (Tenuta Santo Pietro) on a whim,... More

The location is fantastic with beautiful views overlooking Pienza in the distance. We stopped for lunch and were given the cheese making tour. Unfortunately, no one was actully making cheese this day as it was out of season _ best time to visit if interested in cheese making is winter/spring. Learned a lot and appreciate the organic approach they cultivate.... More

A great little spot with a very relaxed atmosphere. For this price you don't expect the ritz but what you get is a very comfortable place full of character and personality. We took a meal one night which was very traditional fayre, the breakfasts are simple but complemented most days with fresh produce from around the farm.
