Casagrande is a beautiful house in the country recently restored, in the picturesque countryside of Montepulciano, an ancient city with interesting Medieval and Renaissance history.
Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and woods, it is an ideal location for a quiet and relaxing holiday immersed in nature.
The villa has been divided into seven apartments completely independent and furnished with excellent taste using furniture and original Tuscan materials; it is very comfortable and bright and the careful restoration has maintained in tact an atmosphere of old Tuscany. The apartments are surrounded by green valleys and offer a splendid rural panorama.
The farmhouse has maintained the elegance of an old farmhouse covered in stone, with beamed ceilings, original floors in terracotta and furnished in a warm Tuscan style from the first half of the 1900's.
The building has been divided into seven apartments of various sizes and types: five in the principal farmhouse and two in the gracious adjacent annex (dependance).
All the property has been restructured with the utmost care and respect for the original characteristics of the building.
The floors in old terracotta, beams in wood, the antique furniture has been carefully restored, recreating inside a warm and friendly atmosphere of the Tuscan hillside villas.
All the apartments have the utmost comfort with large internal spaces and comfortably and functionally furnished.
A swimming pool 7x14 metres is available for the guests in the large private garden. You can play tennis at the Fantina, less than 2 km away, make relaxing and pleasant excursions or walks in the woods and in the surrounding countryside. The geographic position is the best for visiting Tuscany and Umbria with their interesting historic and artistic centres.
Inside the large lounge-dining room you can taste the typical products of our zone, taking advantage of the kitchen space supplied with cutlery and plates, fridge and electric oven.
The bedrooms are large, comfortable and have easy access to the independent bathroom with a shower and bidet.
The Casagrande is an old farm from the XVIII century immersed in one of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany, within an isolated panoramic position, surrounded by woods, vineyards and olive groves.
The farmhouse of Casagrande is about 3km from the historic centre of Montepulciano, in Via di Martiena 40. In a tranquil position, far from noise, but within easy to reach of the town and its services.
Montepulciano, the "Pearl of the 1500's"
The origins of this splendid city are not quite certain, as we don't know why it carried the ancient name of Mons Politianus. Legend tells that Montepulciano was perhaps founded by the mythical Etruscan King Porsenna: it is said, in fact that he transferred from Chiusi to the ancient hill of Mons Mercurius followed by the inhabitants of Chiusi that later changed the name of the hill to Mons Politicus. Unfortunately the first historical writings, defined it as a "fortified settlement", only from 715AD. There was already established a Commune in the XII century, in the late Medieval it was the object of a dispute between Siena and Florence due to its strategic position in the control of Tuscany.
The Val d'Orcia
For those who love nature cannot miss this appointment. Just outside of Montepulciano in the direction of Pienza and Monticchiello, only a few kilometres in distance starts the marvellous Val d’Orcia. It is probably thought to be the most typical Tuscan countryside imagined in the area, and it is difficult to not have at least seen a photo that brings back the harmony and colours of this land.
