Description

La Villetta is ideal for people wanting a place in a beautiful country setting with lots to enjoy locally, and also easy access to the great cities of Florence, Siena and beyond. The house and its extensive garden is in a small, quiet hamlet in a superb scenic setting looking up into the Pratomagno Mountains. It is several hundred years old and has been fully renovated, retaining traditional Tuscan features such as terracotta floors and chestnut beams. There are shops, restaurants and other amenities within easy waliking distance.

La Villetta consists of two completely self-contained apartments each sleeping 4 comfortably with room for a fifth person, so either apartment is ideal for couples or small family groups. The Lower Apartment (like the upper one) has a living/dining room with kitchen area, which is also useable as a bedroom as it has a double sofa-bed. It also has a large double bedroom with a double bed and a folding single bed. The bathroom has a shower and all other

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany contains some of Europe's most beautiful landscapes, along with the great cities of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Lucca. This is an area of great contrasts; from the mountains on the East side to the coastal plains and beaches on the West; from the tranquility of its green countryside to the great renaissance art and the contemporary sophistication of its cities. Tuscany is also well known for its wonderful wines, such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and many others, and for its superb olive oil. The climate ranges from hot (but seldom oppressively) in summer, to cool (but seldom bitterly cold) in winter. This climate, along with the vast array of things to do and see, makes Tuscany an ideal holiday destination at any time of year.

Cascia

The rural community of Cascia lies in the foothills of the beautiful Pratomagno mountains, on which the light is constantly changing - tree clad high up, descending into olive groves and vineyards, punctuated by old buildings and lines of cypress trees. The area is renowned for the freshness of the air, and the local olive oil is held to be amongst the finest in the world. People interested in walking, flora, fauna or art and architecture will find the location ideal. Cascia is famous for the Masaccio painting and superb Romanesque church. There are several other fascinating villages and towns nearby, as well as excellent shopping and numerous restaurants and bars. Good transport gives easy access to the wonders of Florence and beyond.

“Experience the real Tuscany”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2012

We have stayed here 8 times over the last 14 years and love every minute of it. It is so peaceful and relaxing, the perfect base for exploring the great cities of Tuscany, while in the evening sitting in the garden in perfect silence sipping a glass of chilled prosecco and watching the sun set over the Pratomagno Hills, wrestling with the difficult decision of whether to fire up the barbie or to walk into one of the several excellent local restaurants. It is a real taste of rural Tuscany and something which should be experienced. We have stayed in many locations in Italy but value for money, this is undoubtedly the best.
