Poggio al Casone’s 10 self-catering apartments are centrally located in Tuscany: just think that Florence, Siena and San Gimignano are all within an hour’s drive, while the beaches are 30 minutes away. If you arrive at Pisa airport, you are also less than 30 minutes from your holiday apartment at Poggio al Casone.
Small resort with 5 star quality service & hospitality
Guests love alternating days between going out and exploring the main sights in Tuscany with days just staying in and relaxing by the pool, in the sauna or hot tub. The spacious gardens offer guests the chance to enjoy outdoor meals by the BBQ grill or the view of the setting sun with a wine glass in hand.
Being a wine estate, guests don’t need to go far to enjoy both Chianti winery visits and tastings. Bikes are available for exploring the estate, and the reception is open daily to offer assistance and tips in organizing daily itineraries.
Upon request, the staff at Poggio al Casone can also arrange cooking classes, yoga lessons in the vineyards or gardens and breakfast or a private chef at your apartment. Private drivers can also be arranged to take you on guided tours across the region, or enjoy an evening out as a couple with a babysitter back at the apartment taking care of the kids.
The small size of the resort permits the staff at Poggio al Casone to treat every guest and their requests with great attention and personalize your holiday. Have you dreamt of taking a clay or a painting class in the vineyards? How about a dinner in the vineyard? Or a Vespa tour in the countryside? Michela and her friendly staff are on hand to help you make the best of your stay at their wine estate!
Upscale elegant apartments
The apartments host from 2 to 5 guests, with several offering the easy possibility of being rented together to have one of the cottages or villa for an exclusive holiday with extended family and friends. The estate and the gardens offer a wonderful location for special events, including business meetings.
All of the apartments have their own fully-equipped kitchens and living areas, are covered by WiFi and have air conditioning. The estate organizes a weekly “family” outdoor BBQ dinner in July and August where guests can meet each other, in addition to hanging out by the salt water pool or outdoor hot tub. If you wish to enhance your relaxation, you can request a massage or other beauty treatment directly in your apartment or morning yoga classes outdoors in the vineyards.
Perfect whether it’s your first time to Tuscany or fifth!
Whether you’re in Tuscany for the first time or coming back to see more of it, the location of the wine estate is ideal. It is not far from all of the main destinations of Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca, and its location closer to the coast makes it perfect for exploring the coastal wine area of Bolgheri, the beaches along the Etruscan Coast and Livorno. You can also stay inland and toward Volterra and San Gimignano. Most of all, it is perfect for exploring this area of Tuscany that by being “in between” the larger towns often times gets overlooked: the medieval villages of Vicopisano and other small towns in the Montepisano hills between Pisa and Lucca, the hot springs towns of Casciana Terme and San Giuliano Terme and the lovely hill town San Miniato.
Ready for your Tuscan vacation? Amongst the vineyards, you'll find quiet, amazing sunsets and excellent wines to ensure you enjoy the small piece of paradise that is Poggio al Casone.
Meet Michela, manager at Poggio al Casone
While the owners of the estate are the Castellani family, wine producers in Tuscany for over 5 generations, I have been meeting and welcoming guests to Poggio al Casone since it opened its doors to guests in 2008. I have a small staff that has become a small family and are always present on the estate. We know our area very well and love to share its secrets and treasures with our guests, offering tips on what to do and visit in the area.
