Centrally located apartments perfect to enjoy the best of Tuscany
Set on a hill along one of the three roads that lead to and from Montaione, Borgo La Casaccia has seen its share of history, being an ancient post station where horses and letters were exchanged. Fully renovated in 2011, today La Casaccia is a complex of 12 apartments that can host from 2 to 7 guests each.
Perfect for couples as well as families or groups of friends traveling together, La Casaccia is surrounded by a large garden with olive and oak trees, rosemary bushes, mimosa and broom where guests can relax by the 2 swimming pools and soak up the sun and enjoy the tranquility of the outdoors.

Meet Francesco, owner of Borgo La Casaccia
I love meeting people from all over the world. This has been a passion since I was a teenager, first working in restaurants and later on in travel agencies or with tour operators after studying hospitality at university. At the age of 30, I decided to make this world my life by purchasing Borgo La Casaccia and in 2010 my first guests arrived!
This adventure has not been what I expected: the essence of my work was driven home to me when a set of guests commented what an experience it was to be in Tuscany while simply drinking a cup of coffee in the center of Montaione. I realized then what an impact I make in the vacation of every single one of my guests, who often come to Italy for the first time with a different set of expectations than my own, in search of authentic Italy. Their vacation is made up of their accommodation, of course, but also the weather, the waiters one finds at the restaurants, the neighbors in the apartment next to you, the quality of the food, how long the line to enter in a museum is and so on... Not all of these elements can be controlled but a good holiday is a holiday where expectations match reality.
In the end, I offer my guests as complete and accurate information that I can (“to know in advance” is my motto) and the decision to be authentic. Because I’m italian, I’m a Tuscan and the heart of Tuscany beats at Borgo La Casaccia.
Welcome to you all!
