About the property

Farmhouse with 6 apts, 1-2 bedrooms each (2-20 persons) pvt gardens and pool

Beautiful, independent self-catering apartments in ancient Tuscan farmhouse with private swimming pool.

The house is on a 30 acres property on the slopes of Pratomagno mountain, between Florence and Arezzo (35 km from Florence, 25 from Arezzo, 50 km from Siena on easy roads), with a really stunning sight on the whole Valdarno valley and the Chianti hills. It is surrounded by olive trees (we do our own high-quality organic olive oil) and typical vineyards. The farmhouse dates back to the 17th century, it had an extensive restoration work a few years ago in a very refined style and trying to maintain as much as possible of the original building. The garden where the swimming pool is is immersed in the silent, relaxing surroundings of the countryside.

We have six apartments for rent, with one or two bedrooms each, sleeping up to 20 persons total. The apartments are rented separately for couples and families, or altogether for groups!


Apartments #2, #3, #4 and #5 have one bedroom with double bed, its own kitchen, its private bathroom and private outdoor garden area (BBQ available). A double sofa-bed in the living room of #2, #3 and #5 can be added, to sleep other 1/2 persons comfortably. It is ideal for two persons, or a couple with 2 children. Apt#6 has 2 bedrooms and can sleep up to 6 persons: it is ideal for two couples. Apt#7 is a separate house, the former hayloft of the farm: it has a large private terrace with the best view on the valley.

More, you will have access to the shared areas: a TV room with sofas (apt#1) and WI-FI free area, a large lawn terrace with view, and the swimming pool with umbrellas and sunbeds, in the garden with roses.

Podere Casarotta, because of its privileged position, offers a perfect balance between rest&relaxation and the chance to move around and visit hundreds of interesting places: the house is secluded, quiet and peaceful, but at the same time it's near to local town and villages (the nearest shopping point is Castelfranco di Sopra, just 4kms away!) and the A1 motorway is just at a 10 minutes drive.

Then Casarotta will be your luxurious, comfortable and relaxing starting point for visiting Tuscany! Whatever you are looking for: art, history, culture, parks and nature, wine and food routes, or just absolute relax, you will find them all at hand!

About Simone Pieralli

I am Simone, house manager at Podere Casarotta; please feel free to ask any question, I will be glad to help you plan your unforgettable Tuscan holiday!

Why Simone Pieralli chose Loro Ciuffenna

The villa initially belonged to the 'gonfaloniere' (the ancient mayor) of Loro Ciuffenna; then was run by farmers that made a living with their own production of olive oil and wine. The farmhouse was later owned by the Antinori family, and by the S.Maria nuns. On an original stone in the walls of the main building is carved the date '1774', when the farmhouse became part of Loro Ciuffenna. The actual owner's intention was to restore the villa maintaining as much as possible of the original Tuscany architecture: in all the apartments you will find terracotta floors and ceilings with exposed wooden beams.

The whole property (Podere Casarotta farmhouse together with the Conca d'Oro farm) covers approximately 30 acres, mostly planted with olive groves that surround the farmhouse. The place was called from long ago the 'Conca d'Oro' ('the Golden Basin') for its climate, particularly pleasant to people and beneficial to olive oil production. We still produce on the farm our high-quality, organic, tuscan extra-virgin olive oil!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Podere Casarotta farmhouse, because of its privileged position in the very heart of Tuscany (and just 4km from the nearest town, Castelfranco di Sopra) offers a perfect balance in between rest & relaxation and wandering around: the apartments of our villa will be your luxurious and comfortable starting point for visiting Tuscany! Whatever you are looking for: art, history, culture, parks and nature, wine and food routes, or just relax by the swimming pool in the silence of the Tuscany countryside, you will find them all at hand!

fabulous hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week after having been travelling around Italy. Beautiful place, lovely surroundings and very peaceful. Simone was extremely helpful, and the gardener was lovely. Everything was clean and we'll maintained and the views were exceptional! Top tip: Ask Simone to prepare for you one of their home cooked meals. WOW! It was the best meal we had in the whole trip! This was a perfect tuscan escape for families and couples and we would recommend it to anyone, I would rate it 10 if I could!
