Description

Casale Oliveta is located in a little hamlet with a few houses up in the hills. Altthough only 3 km distant from the town of Poggibonsi where you can also find supermarkets, banks, cafés, pubs, cinemas, a theatre and a railway station, the hamlet is located in a completely quiet landscape surrounding, making it a perfect setting for a country holiday, ideal for gentle walks and picnics. At the same time it is a short and easy drive to reach Florence (36 km) and Siena (26 km) from here. Florence and Siena can be reached in one hour. The towers of San Gimignano are just visible across the valley. The surrounding hills are crammed with picturesque and tiny hill towns and castles like Barberino and Castello di Strozzavolpe. The Chianti Classico region with the romantic villages of Castellina in Chianti and Greve can be reached in less than half an hour. A tennis club with 6 tennis courts is at a distant of 2.5 km. There is a golf course with 9 holes 7 km from the property and a 18

Casale Oliveta which translates as 'Olivegrove Farmhouse' consists of five different apartments located in two different houses. One building houses three appartments (Passero, Rondine and Pettirosso). Just up the lane there is a smaller farm cottage made of natural stone and tuff which houses the other two apartments (Gufo and Falco). The plus of Casale Oliveta is that each apartment has its own independent entrance and own garden area with a barbecue on the lawn. Each lawn is surrounded by a hedge and equipped with table and chairs for al fresco dining. When you prefer to dine out, there's a wide selection of trattorias and restaurants within 10 minutes' drive.
The apartments are equipped with Internet WIFI connection, cooker, small oven, fridge with freezer, mini safe, iron and ironing board, a fan in each bedroom and screens in all bedroom windows. All apartments have bedrooms which have beds that can be made up into either twin or double beds. (Please advise us of your preference at the time of booking). Approximately 25 steps lead to the pool area. The swimming pool is surrounded by a sun terrace equipped with sun loungers. From here you will enjoy beautiful views overlooking the rolling olive clad hills, the sprinkling of cypresses trees and the majestic towers of San Gimignano in the distance.

Casale Oliveta is a good choice for exploring central Tuscany. The main attractions of the region can be reached very easily. The highway which connects Florence to Siena is only 3 km distant. And the villa's location only 4 km from the railway station of Poggibonsi is a good base to visit Florence and Siena even without a car: You can park your car in Poggibonsi (free parking behind the railway station) and take the train in both directions. During the week, trains to Florence/Siena and back go regularly (approx. every 1.5 or 2 hours). The train ride takes about 1 hour to Siena and 1.5 hour to Florence. In Florence the train will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station "Santa Maria Novella" to the Cathedral or the Uffizi. In Siena the railway station is located approx. 3 km from centre, and you have to take a bus to reach the old town on top of the hill.

1 living/dining room with kitchenette
1 double bedroom
1 open gallery with twin beds (gallery looks onto the living room)
1 bathroom with shower
Just up the lane from the farmhouse, there is a smaller farm cottage. A garden path with some steps leads to an upper level of the house with large terrace. The cosy sitting room has 17th century beams, a terracotta floor, a sofa and armchairs, a solid dining table and chairs. There is a small but very efficient kitchen corner screened by a low wall in one corner. A ladder leads up to a tiny gallery with 2 single beds (suitable for young boys or girls, not for 2 adults). Furthermore there is a double bedroom and a shower room. Falco is equipped with air conditioning and a washing machine. This apartment has the attraction of its own raised terrace, provided with garden furniture and its own barbecue. This is well planted, with olives, yucca and agape. Falco would suit a young family, or make a peaceful retreat for a couple.
