The garden where the swimming pool is is immersed in the silent, relaxing surroundings of the countryside. This apartment is ideal for 2 persons but can sleep up to 4: it has one bedroom with double bed, its own living/kitchen, its private bathroom and private outdoor garden area (BBQ available). In the living/kitchen there is a double sofa-bed that can be opened to sleep 1/2 other persons. Podere Casarotta, because of its privileged position, offers a perfect balance between rest&relaxation and the chance to move around and visit hundreds of interesting places: the house is secluded, quiet and peaceful, but at the same time it's near to local town and villages (the nearest shopping point is Castelfranco di Sopra, just 4kms away!) and the A1 motorway is just at a 10 minutes drive. Then Casarotta will be your luxurious, comfortable and relaxing starting point for visiting Tuscany! Whatever you are looking for: art, history, culture, parks and nature, wine and food routes, or just absolute relax, you will find them all at hand! ** TRIP ADVISOR 2014 CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE WINNER ** Search for us: PODERE CASAROTTAMore

About the neighbourhood
Valdarno valley, the area between Florence, Chianti and Arezzo is famous for its top quality extravirgin olive oil, wine and fantastic food, like fiorentina (porterhouse) steak and handmade pasta. 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.
Getting around
We are close to many towns but we are up on a hill in the countryside, so a car is very much needed for any trip. The nearest town Castelfranco di Sopra is just 5km away, you can walk there the road is quite steep. Other nearby towns are: Loro Ciuffenna (9km), San Giovanni Valdarno (10km), Montevarchi (14km), Figline Valdarno (15km). Firenze and Arezzo are both just 45km from us, Siena 70km. We are in a very 'strategic' position!
