We have recently returned from our week long stay at Podere Casarotta. I can only agree completely with the previous reviewer of this wonderful place. Simone is an excellent manager who manages to be both helpful and discreet, which I think is a perfect balance. Simone recommended apartment 2 to us and we were extremely pleased with it. The apartment was plenty big enough for the two of us and had a lovely terrace and also a small garden where we were able to use a BBQ. The terrace of apartment 2 was the stand out feature for us as we sat out there most evenings. The pool was also lovely and just a short walk away.
The apartment was well equipped and we were left a welcome basket, which is a nice touch. On the first night Simone offered to cook for us, it was easily one of the best meals we have had. He cooked several dishes for us to try and was very reasonable at 25 euros per person for 3 courses and wine.
As previous reviewers have mentioned you need a car to stay here, the windy road up was a challenge the first time but after that it was fine.
This is the perfect place if you are looking for somewhere to relax or for a base to explore Tuscany, we did both and had a brilliant holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend this place, it is original and charming and the perfect Tuscan retreat.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Podere Casarotta is a XVIIIth century farmhouse in Tuscany which has been renovated in recent years, converted in holiday house with private swimming pool and divided into luxurious apartments for your holiday rentals. In the farmhouse there are six indipendent apartments for rent, each with one or two double bedrooms; the whole holiday house can sleep up to 20 persons. All the apartments are furnished in classic Tuscany style, and each apartment has its own kitchen (well equipped), bathroom and private garden outdoor. The whole property (Podere Casarotta farmhouse together with the Conca d'Oro farm) covers approximately 30 acres, mostly planted with olive groves that surround the farmhouse. The place was called from long ago the "Conca d'Oro" ("the Golden Basin") for its climate, particularly pleasant to people and beneficial to olive oil production. We still produce on the farm our high-quality, organic, tuscan extra-virgin olive oil! Podere Casarotta farmhouse, because of its privileged position in the very heart of Tuscany (and just 5km from the nearest town, Castelfranco di Sopra) offers a perfect balance between rest & relaxation and wandering around: the apartments of our villa will be your luxurious and comfortable starting point for visiting Tuscany! Whatever you are looking for: art, history, culture, parks and nature, wine and food routes, or just relax by the swimming pool in the silence of the Tuscany countryside, you will find them all at hand! ... more less
