Perched atop a hill near the delightful Etruscan village of Sarteano, Podere Casalfava even from afar looks like everyone’s idea of the perfect stone farmhouse. And so it is. Originally constructed in the 1700s, it was beautifully restored from top to bottom by its present owners. Windows were enlarged and French doors added to bring the warm Tuscan light inside. The beamed ceilings were preserved, as was much of the beautiful old stonework, but the old floor plan made way for larger rooms, a professionally-equipped kitchen and, most importantly, ensuite or private bathrooms for each of the six spacious air-conditioned bedrooms. Dominating the ground floor is a long room divided by archways into living and dining areas with French doors opening to the large and well kept garden. The bedrooms, distributed over the two levels, are grouped around smaller air-conditioned sitting rooms on the first floor. Outside, a beautifully kept garden with extensive lawns wraps around the house. A separate summer kitchen and dining room, once the barn of the farmhouse makes al fresco dining a pleasure, and the large swimming pool set below on a lawned terrace beckons to those more interested in tanning and swimming than sightseeing. The quality of the kitchen and bathrooms are of a very high level.

Clients reviews

We liked the interior design and furnishing, the pool, the cleanliness, the setting and view, the facilities and the generosity of the charming owner and staff with supplies. For our needs, it was perfection. Somehow, the property was even better in reality than on the website and in the brochure. I can't think how - it may just be that we had such a wonderful time that we have added our own romanticism to our memories of the villa.

ow! Where to begin... First of all, Podere Casalfava was everything Tuscany Now presented it to be and then some! The experience was more far more than we could have hope for; and, whenever our extended family has gotten together since the trip, it is an experience we recall repeatedly and fondly. The home, its location, the welcoming staff and owner all made for an experience that my family will remember for the rest of our lives. We will definitely be returning. PC is very well laid out. A large family can find plenty of areas to socialize; and then retreat to a another part of the home for peace and quiet. The view of the valley as a pleasure to take in every morning and evening, it is so captivating that you don't ever want to leave. But should you find the need to roam, Sarteano is a wonderful jumping off place for all kinds of adventures. Cortona is an easy drive and we found ourselves coming back to Montepulciano several times. Even Siena (lunch) and San G (dinner) were done from Podere Casalfava/Sarteano in one day. We loved it, we can't wait to go back!

We loved the view, the very well equipped kitchen and separate semi indoor BBQ place and the big garden surrounding the house.

What a pleasure to be the 1st guests at your lovely villa here in Sarteano. We had a wonderful time and we thank you for all the little extras that have made our holiday so enjoyable. It's a rare thing to find a a comfortable home away from home and we found it very difficult to leave. We hope to be back soon.
