I'm currently staying at B&B Antico Casale with my husband and my parents and I had to compliment the the owners and the facilities right away. The place is beautiful! Located in a natural reserve, on a medieval road between San Gimignano and Volterra. Surrounded by forest and mountains, it's so peaceful and quiet - the perfect escape from the busy everyday life. The staff and owners are amazing - so nice and welcoming. The chef Irina astounds us every morning with the most delicious freshly baked goods for breakfast and, in the evening, the dining room transforms into a romantic restaurant where the Tuscan famed bisteca a-la Fiorentina and grilled pork are served with red wine and crustini with tomatoes. The meat is cooked by the owner himself - a former military pilot! The food is so good, I don't remember the last time I tasted meat so fine! The rooms are spacious and beautiful, the showers are great with really strong water pressure, the best shower I've experienced in a long while! There's a pool and an outdoor jacuzzi and an inner sauna+jacuzzi, private, great for a candle lit romantic evening - we've tried! Highly recommended, it made our Italian vacation even more wonderful than I could imagine.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- L'Antico Casale The property takes its name from the road that runs along it, the Salaria, an important route for communication with Pisa and the sea and the salt trade. Originally born as a staging post for changing horses it is documented since Roman times. Although today nothing remains of the original structure Antico Casale offers relax and tranquility immersing the guest in a romantic atmosphere and familiar at the same time, the proximity to the nature reserve of Castelvecchio and the short distance from Sangimignano makes it strategic and ideal for those who want to visit and experience the real Tuscany. The magic of silence...The flavors of the past...An emotional atmosphere... ... more less
