Casale A.D. 1234 is a wonderful country home with a large private garden and saltwater swimming pool, located in stunning scenery between Cortona & Arezzo. The building, dating back to 1234, is surrounded by 12 hectares of land including olive groves, organic vegetable garden and fields. It sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. There's a large living room & well equipped kitchen leading to the pergola. This outdoor area has a traditional brick oven & BBQ, perfect for dinning and relaxing

The space

Casale A.D. 1234 sits on a gated 12 hectares property where there are two stand alone villas separated by a road with independent entrances and gardens. Guests will have exclusive use of the swimming pool area. An important information for families with small children is that the swimming area is not gated , therefore small children must be supervised at all times.

Casale A.D. 1234 was originally a convent. It is quite unique as its walls hug the hill side. It was renovated with a more modern flare this winter and we are excited to open its doors to travelers who long for some peace and quite in beautiful Tuscany.
On the first floor you will find a large well equipped kitchen, an informal dinning area, a open plan living room and formal dinning room with a fireplace, and a charming and cozy bedroom with a low ceiling with a bright reading area and private bathroom with a shower. On the second floor are the sleeping quarters. There is a master bedroom with private bathroom equipped with a bathtub/shower and large built in closet behind a charming frescoed wall. There are also two smaller bedrooms that share a bathroom with a shower. The home boasts many windows which make it full of light and gives our guests some spectacular views.
Outside of the kitchen is a charming portico with a wood oven and barbecue area making it easy to cook and enjoy meals outdoors.
Located outside and down the stairs is the laundry room equipped with a washer and ironing table with iron.
The second villa is occupied by the property owners: a doctor and his wife, an osteopath. They are a charming couple and they are also very busy and rarely home. They are there but not there. The owners also have an organic vegetable garden and invite the guests to help themselves to the seasonal produce.

Amazing house with a great location. It's scenic and feels in middle if known where but is close to all the necessary things like supermarket, petrol, reasturant etc. Great access point to exploring central Tuscany. Deborah helped us with many suggestions ( and I would follow then!) and extras and Marta and family were on hand if needed and with a special teat of home grown vegetables. The house is very authentic and italian in feel with a fabulous private pool amd lovely gardens. Firm beds, clean and generous size toilets and showers and a big area for socialising in the house.

I honestly can't say enough good things about our time here! We stayed for 3 nights and I wish we could've stayed a whole month. The place is simply gorgeous, you can't capture in pictures how beautiful it is, with the plus of being well equipped with absolutely everything you need. As a plus Martha and Deborah were super warm and welcoming with us. Deborah was very helpful, she speaks fluent Spanish, English and Italian and had great suggestions of things to do in the area. Our favorite feature was the wood grill and of course the pool. The villa is sitting on a hill with great views, it has all the charm of an old tuscan villa but also the comfort of having ac, washing machine and renovated bathrooms. The location is also great, it allows you to do day trips and see more of that beautiful landscape of tuscany, some bigger cities and the vineyards in the area. We took a day trip to Siena ( 1 hour away) and Cortona where Deborah suggested an amazing restaurant. There were 6 of us, 3 couples travelling from Boston and San Francisco, we all love to cook and wine so we were in heaven. Our time there was just the perfect mix of a beautiful relaxing vacation but also the weird feeling that you are home living in Italy, cooking amazing pasta and grilling by the pool. Loved it and would definitely come back.
