The Casina is unique: the only truly luxurious house for two in Tuscany. Even before the restoration it was hailed as the ‘Best for Couples in Italy' by Conde Nast Traveller.
The 12th century stone watchtower is an idyllic, romantic hideaway set in a UNESCO World Heritage site of olive groves, vineyards, medieval villages, baroque churches and papal palaces.
A glass pavilion now wraps around the ancient nucleus of The Casina, opening on all sides onto the unspoiled countryside of a renaissance painting.
Recent indulgent additions include: an oxygenated infinity pool (no chlorine) that is heated in winter and fitted with a countercurrent swimming machine; a steam room and an outdoor marble hot tub with panoramic views. A flowered pergola provides shade for the bar and barbecue area (with fridge and ice maker).
The area around The Casina is a treasure trove of history, beauty, food and culture. If you are feeling active, guests will have hybrid bicycles at their disposal to explore. Or you can visit nearby hot springs, go river swimming, or simply glide over the land in a hot air balloon, there is plenty to do!
Choose between a bedroom suite atop the tower or stay in the ground floor loggia with its adjacent pond/library bedroom and en-suite steam room (all wheelchair accessible on the ground floor)
The bedroom suite is on two levels at the top of the ancient stone tower: the bedroom and rainforest shower room are connected below to a drawing room with a traditional Tuscan fireplace.
The rest of the house on the ground floor consists of a modern glass pavilion, encompassing a well-equipped kitchen with a medieval bread oven, a large drawing room and dining area with magnificent views, and a daybed with a marble soaking tub overlooking a fishpond.
