Podere Casarotta is a beatiful, ancient farmhouse in Tuscany which has been renovated in recent years, converted in holiday house with private swimming pool and divided into luxurious apartments for your holiday rentals.
In the farmhouse there are five indipendent apartments for rent, each with one or two double bedrooms; the whole holiday house can sleep up to 20 persons. All the apartments are furnished in classic Tuscany style, and each apartment has its own kitchen (well equipped), bathroom and private garden outdoor.
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!
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!
