Set in the Tuscan hills between Cortona and Mercatale, this exquisite 6 bedroom manor house is the ideal retreat for those wishing to enjoy idyllic and peaceful surroundings in extreme comfort.
Villa Casale has its own meadows and olive groves, a private lake and numerous woodland walks whilst still being within easy reach of many of the major Tuscan and Umbrian towns.
Designed and renovated by a renowned interior designer, Villa Casale exudes sophistication and tranquility.
The villa enjoys lots of space both internally and above, externally. Large showers, wood beams, oak ceilings and stone doorways all assist in combining to create a unique and luxurious getaway.
It is the panoramic open agricultural landscapes of the 'senese', the area of Tuscany south of Siena, where many return. Delight in sampling the local wines in 'enoteche' of the wine centres of Montalcino and Montepulciano, enjoy the classic vistas from Pope Pius 11's Renaissance jewel, Pienza or bathe in the thermal springs at Bagno Vignoni with its view over abandoned hill top fortifications.
All these places are accessible from one of our villas in the ever changing landscape of the Val d'Orcia, and located not far from Villa Casale.
Dramatically placed on a hillside overlooking the valley of Valdichiana, with views of Lake Trasimeno and Monte Amiata, is the Tuscan hill town of Cortona. Whether it's a wander through the cobbled streets, a visit to the antiques market or a delicious al fresco meal in one of the trattorie, a visit to Cortona should not be missed as part of a Tuscan holiday.
