Podere Casarotta is the perfect place for a wonderfully relaxing family holiday.
My whole family, 19 in total (ages ranging from 6-81 years old) travelled to Italy to celebrate both my fathers 80th birthday, on the 5th June, and my husband and my wedding on the 8th June.
Renting the 6 apartments in its entirety was a great way for us all to enjoy our own space and facilities and 'meet up' at the large pool or on the terrace for a dinner overlooking the spectacular views of Tuscany.
Simone was amazing for both the planning of the holiday ( including our wedding) and his services during our 15 night stay. Simone and his girlfriend also catered for our wedding day, cooking up a delicious Tuscan cuisine. His team were more than happy to come-in mid stay to change all bedding in preparation for our friends to visit (sending the kids home with our family!!!) .
The 'food and drink' supplied were very useful for our first night and our shopping expedition to coop in San Giovanni to stock up on essentials was only a 20 min drive away. Nearer is Castlefranco di Sopra, only 5 mins away and has a couple of smaller supermarket and a beautiful square to enjoy a coffee and croissant.
Florence is just a 15mins drive to Figline train station, then 45 mins right to the centre. What a stunning city and a must-do for us tourists among us!
We will most certainly be returning to Podere Casarotta with family and friends.
Thank you to Simone and your staff
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Podere Casarotta is a XVIIIth century farmhouse in Tuscany which has been renovated in recent years, converted in holiday house with private swimming pool and divided into luxurious apartments for your holiday rentals. In the farmhouse there are six indipendent apartments for rent, each with one or two double bedrooms; the whole holiday house can sleep up to 20 persons. All the apartments are furnished in classic Tuscany style, and each apartment has its own kitchen (well equipped), bathroom and private garden outdoor. The whole property (Podere Casarotta farmhouse together with the Conca d'Oro farm) covers approximately 30 acres, mostly planted with olive groves that surround the farmhouse. The place was called from long ago the "Conca d'Oro" ("the Golden Basin") for its climate, particularly pleasant to people and beneficial to olive oil production. We still produce on the farm our high-quality, organic, tuscan extra-virgin olive oil! Podere Casarotta farmhouse, because of its privileged position in the very heart of Tuscany (and just 5km from the nearest town, Castelfranco di Sopra) offers a perfect balance between rest & relaxation and wandering around: the apartments of our villa will be your luxurious and comfortable starting point for visiting Tuscany! Whatever you are looking for: art, history, culture, parks and nature, wine and food routes, or just relax by the swimming pool in the silence of the Tuscany countryside, you will find them all at hand! ... more less
