Stayed here with 2 friends-the view was absolutely amazing and Simone was really helpful. We had everything we needed in the apartment and it was really relaxing! I would definately recommend Podere Casarotta!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Beautiful apartments in ancient (1774) Tuscan villa, that had an extensive restoration work in 2000, in a very refined style; there is also a swimming pool, immersed in the silent, relaxing surroundings of the countryside.Located on the hills of Pratomagno, between Florence and Arezzo (35 km from Florence, 25 from Arezzo, 50 km from Siena on well-made roads), on the cliff of the Pratomagno mountain, with a stunning sight on the whole Valdarno valley and the Chianti hills. Surrounded by olive trees (we do our own olive oil) and typical vineyards.The apartments can accommodate from 2 to 4+2 persons each; they all have at least one bedroom with double bed, its own kitchen, private bathroom and private outdoor garden area; one has two double bedrooms. Podere Casarotta will be your luxurious, comfortable and super relaxing starting point for touring Tuscany! Whatever you are looking for: art, history, culture, parks and nature, wine and food routes, you will find them all within a few miles! But beware of our pool: enjoying it in the perfect silence of our countryside can cause side effects like extreme laziness and lack of desire to travel... take your favourite book with you!The area is safe and quiet, rich in cultural attractions; perfect location for walking and mountain-bike. Very peaceful area. Spa town, Rapolano Terme, is 30 minutes away. Nearest village with many small shops and a supermarket - 4 km away.Valdarno valley, the area between Florence, Chianti and Arezzo is famous for its wine, its oil and nice food, like "fiorentina" steak. Its rolling hills are covered with olive groves and vineyards, it has extensive woodlands and beautiful restored historical buildings, including many castles and abbeys. All these features contribute to its charm and serene country atmosphere but it is in easy reach of towns such as Arezzo, Florence and Siena. ... more less
