“" La Casalta ", our Paradise on Earth, by Hazel and Gastone in Germany.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2009

Have you ever wondered just where Paradise is ?
Historians tell us that the Garden of Eden may have been in Iraq. The truth is.........it is to be found at " La Casalta ".
There you will find a large villa set in its own ground of 40,000sq. meters surrounded by luscious lawns. Apart from a large swimming pool the grounds are dotted with numerous trees and scrubs. The villa boasts its own vineyard and there is a wooded area where one can sit and read on warm days.
This haven of peace is owned and run by Senora Francesca Tommasini..........a jewel of a hostess.
Francesca`s knowledge of the Tuscan countryside knows no bounds. Under her guidance you will discover the many gems of artistic, historical and architectural importance that dot this region.
Francesca`s attention to her guests is impeccable. Indeed, 5 Star Room Service would have much to learn from the care that she lavishes on all those who stay at La Casalta.
Tuscany is well known for its superb food. But the cooking of Valentina, Francesca`s daughter, cannot be matched. She will cook for you if you ask !
We have become addicted to La Casalta. It has become our own private oasis and is for us home from home. We can highly recommend it, both to those with an adventourous spirit and to those who hanker after peace and tranquility in the seclusion of this magical place.

A beautiful Villa in a great location, La Casalta is a perfect choice. The wonderful hostess Francesca will help you plan your day trips to perfection, including less known and less touristic spots. At the end of each day, you'll get to return to the carefully maintained house with its fully equipped kitchen (NOTHING is missing).
We stayed at La Casalta four nights, and we recommend you to stay much longer! Also, if you can, spend one evening home enjoying the delicacies cooked by Francesca's daughter Valentina.

My husband and I booked this villa for 4 nights about 2 months ahead of our arrival date. Since the time we booked, the greatest hostesses ever Francesca never stopped answering every single question/concern that I had about touring Tuscany. She is very sincere and patience  On the arrival day, Francesca with her little goose greeted us at the Gatehouse and gave us a tour of the villa. We’ve got so lucky that we were the only family booked during Christmas time so she let us to stay in her largest villa – which can accommodate 6 people comfortably. Imagine just 2 of us in it with 2 large ensuite bedrooms!! Francesca had her freshly homemade yummy lemon cake, house wine and all breakfast produces all set in the villa. The villa is nicely decorated in Tuscany style, very clean and well equipped with lots of kitchen stuff to use. Francesca was always ready if we needed anything. We went to chat with her in the morning before heading out and she always directed us the shortcuts, restaurant tips and highlights of what to do/see. One of the most beautiful memories about this trip was the Christmas Eve dinner with Francesca and her family. We were honored & grateful to be invited. No doubt about the food & wine was top rated! We were truly moved with how hospitable they were. If you’re looking for a perfect villa to stay for your Tuscany trip, this is it. It’s a home away from home. I look forward to go Tuscany and visit Francesca and her family again.

A perfect beginning to our trip... La Casalta provided my wife and I with a relaxing and tranquil escape in the heart of Tuscany. With its perfect location, all of the major tourist attractions within Tuscany were no more than an hour away. Our apartment was very clean and decorated nicely with rustic Tuscan accents. We had plenty of room with a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living area and bathroom on the first floor. The bedroom was located above in a comfortable loft.

What we enjoyed most was the property surrounding the villa. It had beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, vineyards and towns. The property owner and our hostess for the weekend was incredibly helpful in planning our daily excursions from the villa. One of her unique recommendations was a quick trip to the town of Certaldo after we left San Gimignano.

We would highly recommend this property for a relaxing getaway in Tuscany. We’ll be returning as soon as possible!

If you are looking for a place to stay in Tuscany where you can find peace and beauty then I would recommend La Casalta. Myself, my husband and our 16 yr old daughter stayed at this wonderful villa last summer.

The villa has been converted into 3 apartments and has beautiful grounds, a large swimming pool and an on site owner who is the perfect hostess. Francesca will lend you maps, help you plan your route so that you see the best of the countryside and tell you the best places to park. She will make table reservations at local restaurants or even cook for you if you wish.

We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing time and enjoyed the sights of Sienna, Singalunga, Lucigiano, Arezzo,Peruga and many more beautiful hilltop towns, all easily accessable from La Casalta.

We will definitely be returning.

Stayed August 2006
