Beautiful environment and magnificent high rooms nicely decorated. Of all facilities. Fine pool for the entire day to enjoy! Supermarket nearby as well as restaurants in the beautiful old town of Cortona.
Some people dream about a 2nd home in Toscany. Our House in Tuscany is situated on the estate of Vittorio at the foot of Cortona, only 10 min. by car. Almost every year we want TO BE THERE. Because if the atmosphere, the beautifull apartments, nice swimming pool, birds singing, started early in the morning by the nightingale. Specially recommended for family-reunions. The hosts Vittorio and Allessandra became friends. A beautifull place to be! To read your favourite books, to paint, to cook with friends. Just beleave in your Tuscany Dream!
Stayed here on the second leg of an Italian adventure. Not much happening in the immediate area, but a fantastic base for flying around. Felt very rural, even though its almost on a main road. Quiet, laid back and a lovely layout. Staff were most helpful and welcoming. Even the local moggy-cat was there with us for the duration. Must have been the salami. Dream like perfection would sum this place up. Excellent!!!!!!
I first stayed here 5 years ago and found Il Casale perfect for what we wanted - comfortable, well equipped, good grounds and a good location close to Cortona and the wonderful countryside around. I returned here in May for a foolw-up visit to do parts of the regions we had run out of time for in the first visit, and found it even better. Alessandra and the other staff there were most helpful and made us feel very special. We look forward to another visit soon!
Another wonder vacation in Cortona at my favorite home away from home...This time I am traveling with my brother and sister-in-law....As always, the people bring us back...the friendly, accommodating service and beautiful surrounding bring me back ...4th year...AND I could travel ANYWHERE in the world, but this place is where I find rest, solace, friendship and comfort......sounds like "home"...........
Our group of 19 women spent a wonderful week at il Casale. The villas were well furnished and charming and the beds and linens were nice. We had a small kitchen and family room as well as two bedrooms (1 queen and 3 singles) and two baths and it was perfect for us! Our other friends had different arrangements but all seemed pleased. The courtyard was beautifully landscaped and as charming as the rest of Cortona.
My wife and have spent the last 16 years holidaying in Italy and have spent the last 10 years with Signore Victorio and his staff, for between 4 and 6 weeks during each summer. We cannot recommend Il Casale highly enough . The accommodation and staff are 5star.
4 of us stayed in one of the apartments for 6 nights towards the end of June. The apartment was very spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a full well equipped kitchen and lounge room so very adequate space for 4 people. The grounds are stunning with plenty of places to sit outside including very nice pool with plenty of sun beds. There is a laundry - it costs 5 euros per load. Wifi is available - one device is free then extra logons have a fee. Location wise it is perfect for exploring the Umbria and Tuscany regions. Is close to supermarket and shops. A very short drive to Cortona which is wonderful! We also drove to the local train station and parked and got a train to Florence for a day trip which was easy and not very expensive. There are not restaurant or bar facilities on site, but just a short walk away there is another property with the same owner that has a lovely restaurant with good food. Would recommend this place especially if you have a bigger group, a family or are staying for longer than a few nights as it is close to everything, comfortable and spacious.
I just returned from Italy, which included a 5 night stay at Residence Il Casale, with 3 other friends. We were welcomed when we arrived late at night by Mr. Victorio, who was very hospitable even though we hardly speak any Italian. Alessandra was also very helpful beforehand by answering emails with questions and when we got there. The apartment we stayed in was very clean and spacious for the 4 of us, with 2 full bathrooms and 2 large bedrooms. The property was beautiful, quiet and a place we all agreed that we would return to. The weather was just warming up so we didn't get to use the pool, but it was very clean surrounded by beautiful lawn and welcoming.
Had five days relaxing here and self catered throughout. Our suite was well enough appointed to allow us to cook what we planned - maybe could have done with some more crockery and glassware though. We had super private terrace at rear just yards from shared swimming pool. Gardens were well kept and a pleasure to wander in. Reception was efficient and friendly and catered for all our needs. But opening hours were a bit too variable. It would have been simple to ask visitors when they intended to arrive and have someone there to welcome them rather than be greeted after a (long) journey with a mobile number to ring. The external signage and the guest handbook could do with a rewrite to make them more welcoming and informative but that is a detail. There is a warm welcome from Adriana who speaks excellent English and for whom nothing is a problem. We will be back for more soon
