Dating from the 13th century, the private country estate of Santo Stefano is set amongst a sweeping landscape of gentle hills and valleys in a little known area of northern Tuscany, yet less than an hour from the historic centres of Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena. The estate covers over 1000 acres of rolling countryside, lakes, woodlands, cornfields, olive groves, vineyards - even a wildlife reserve. At its centre is the tiny hamlet of Santo Stefano with the remains of an old castle and church with its Etruscan tombs and cellars which remain in use today.
A number of the estate’s former farmhouses and agricultural buildings have been carefully restored by local craftsmen to offer high quality holiday accommodation with all the facilities demanded by the 21st century holidaymaker, but with all the charm of a classic Tuscan estate.
Podere La Casa comprises 12 air-conditioned apartment suites located in a cluster of three farmhouses, a Borgo, grouped around cobbled courtyards surrounded by lawns and garden areas of roses, various other flower beds and cypress trees. La Casa has an enormous swimming pool surrounded by an open loggia, and a separate Jacuzzi pool set amongst the lawns. Set in an elevated position to the south of the estate on the way to Montaione, there are far reaching views over the surrounding rolling countryside.

It is also possible to rent larger apartment suites at Podere La Casa sleeping five or six guests, see property reference 29407 or a smaller apartment suites just for three, but still with two bedrooms or for just two guests.
