COMFORT ALL YEAR ROUND:
Monte Casone can welcome you all year round with the highest level of comfort and respect for the environment, even in winter. To achieve this the farm holiday accommodation has been renovated recently with green technologies which have brought the buildings to the highest level of energy performance (A+).
The use of these technologies, which is extremely rare in this region of Italy, offers you the possibility of visiting Tuscany out of season and thus to avoid overcrowding in the high season in the popular tourist destinations.

About Mathieu & Elisabeth
Belgian Citizens, Mathieu and Elisabeth lived for more than 10 years in Tuscany. This airline Captain and his wife completely renovated their 9 hectares estate, tastefully blending Tuscan heritage, luxury and green technologies. From the vast olive grove that extends over a large part of their estate, Mathieu and Elisabeth extract a high quality organic oil using an ancestral process of first cold pressing.
What makes this Cottage unique
The buildings in Monte Casone have been luxuriously restored according to original plans and have been awarded the much sought after energy performance certificate A+. In order to achieve this a number of green technologies were used during the renovation, such as a closed loop geothermal well system, pyramid shaped under-floor heating and cooling, polarized low emissivity windows, wood fibreboard insulation, dual-flow ventilation and, in addition, the construction of a solar power plant which generates around thirty megawatts of electricity per year. This resolutely environment friendly approach has enabled Monte Casone to reduce its fossil fuel consumption to zero for all the tertiary part of its operation. This is part of what makes Monte Casone so unique: the harmonious combination of respect for its heritage with the luxury of the installation and respect for the environment.

This Villa is fantastic!
My family of 5 from Colorado USA stayed here in late May/Early June 2018. On the way there, it seemed a little out of the way at first-- but it was worth the extra few minutes and actually perfectly located for day trips to Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano. The villa was beautifully equipped with loads of room, comfort, and everything we wanted to cook great meals at "home." We spent one full day at the beautiful pool and were awed by the wonderful views. The caretakers met us on arrival and were attentive to any need. It was one of our favorite parts of the trip, and I wish we would have stayed longer! Thank you for such a beautiful place!
Dear Amy, we are totally delighted to read your fantastic comments! And we are equally proud to learn that Monte Casone was your favourite part of the trip.
Also, Thank you so much for your kind words about Niccolò and Lisa. They were indeed striving to make your holidays unforgettable!
We look forward to welcome you again soon to Tuscany.
Beautiful villa in rural Tuscany
A fantastic villa with outstanding views an ideal place for a relaxing holiday. The property is in an extremely rural position and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The staff at the villa are the most pleasant folk, nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It was great for Monte Casone's staff to host you and your family in one of the most sought-after areas of Tuscany!
I am delighted to read that your stay with us was very peaceful and that you enjoyed the dedication of Niccolò and Lisa.
We look forward to welcome you again at Monte Casone!
Regards - Mathieu
Our stay at Monte Casone was perfect! Niccolo and Lisa welcomed us warmly after a long journey and showed us to our beautiful apartment. The accommodations were exceptional and the surrounding area views took our breath away daily. The apartment was well thought out and perfect for large groups. Gorgeous kitchen, ample living space, beautifully furnished. The view from the pool is breathtaking! The outdoor dining space under the pergola was perfect for a large family dinner one evening. We can’t wait to come back!
Greetings from Monte Casone! Thank you so much Patty for your wonderful review. We are always happy to hear from our guests and we very much appreciated your enthusiastic comments regarding our estate and our employees onsite. This is indeed high praise!
We look forward to welcoming you back to Monte Casone next time you plan to visit Tuscany!
Most Amazing location and beautiful villa
Monte Casone is one of the best scenic locations in Tuscany. It is surrounded by lush greenery and rolling hills. It is also close to major attractions such as Florence, Pisa, and San Gimignano. The villa is very spacious and has all the facilities. Niccolo and Lisa were very helpful and warm hosts. We highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting Italy. Thank you Matthew and Elisabeth for renting this property.
Dear Aditya, Thank you so much for your kind words and warm recommendation about Monte Casone. It has been a great pleasure hosting you and your family. We look forward to welcome you again soon to Tuscany!
Thank you once more, Elisabeth
Beautiful property, a joy to spend time there!
We were greeted by Nicolo and Lisa who gave us a tour of the house and property - they were both very attentive to our needs. It is a large home, with 4 lovely bedrooms (the master suite is truly lovely - so much so, that we had to do a lottery to see which of the 4 couples got to use it!). The kitchen is very large and modern and fun for our group to prepare meals in together. We ate both outdoors and indoors - both very comfortable for a large group.
I would recommend that you arrive with your groceries - remembering that local stores close between 2 (or 2:30pm) and 4pm. The only staples provided were a day's worth of coffee, some olive oil, a bag of pasta, and salt and pepper. We opted to eat in because the roads are windy (as in lots of turns) and dark at night, and also a bit confusing, despite the gps. The pool was cool and with cloudy weather, we didn't really use it, but it is beautiful. I would definitely recommend this lovely villa.
Thoughtfully laid out property, finished to a high standard: best agriturismo we’ve stayed in
Firstly, Elisabeth is extremely helpful and welcoming. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she always had a smile on her face.
The property itself is extremely well-designed and well-finished. Often agriturismo properties are just a renovated house with a pool plonked into whatever space was available. However here, it was extremely well thought-out. Each apartment has its own outside dining area, which is not overlooked at all due to the landscaping. The fixtures and furniture are to a high spec, as were the bathrooms and the kitchen. The pool is fabulous – especially considering the size of the property – and often we found ourselves to be the only ones there. It faces west and the sunsets are incredible.
The location may be a little remote, but that shouldn’t put you off. Some of the roads are unpaved in the area and other windy so it can take longer than you think, but Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano and even Florence are all within driving distance for a day trip. My wife and I stayed with her parents who were over from the US. The two of us have visited Tuscany several times, and so we were quite happy to avoid the big tourist areas, and do wine tours in Chianti and Carmignano (visit Tenuta di Capezzana). There some good local restaurants within a 10-15 minute drive. We especially liked Casa Masi and La Rocca (in Castelfalfi).
Geo-thermal heating/AC keeps the apartments at 24 degrees Celsius, no matter what the temperature is outside. It can get a little warm at night, but there are fans provided and you can open the windows. There is no proper AC, but generally this is not necessary.
Tip on arrival:
Follow Elisabeth’s instructions and arrive from the west side, using Via di Monti. My in-laws followed Google Maps and came down the track (the southern fork of Via Poggetta) from the east, which should not be tackled in anything other than a tractor!
I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
Dear Marcus, greetings from Monte Casone! Thank you so much for your wonderful online review. We are always happy to hear from our guests and we very much appreciated your most humbling comments regarding our estate. This is indeed high praise and we are most grateful for your kind remarks on our behalf. We look forward to welcoming you back to Monte Casone next time you plan to visit Tuscany!
The village of Ghizzano is only three kilometres away from the estate. There, you will find a bakery and very typical grocery store / bar.
The closest supermarkets are 15 minutes away, San Gimignano and Volterra are 30 minutes away, Pisa is 40 minutes away, Florence and Lucca are 60 minutes away and Sienna is 90 minutes away.
Gastronomes and lovers of truffles will be delighted to discover or rediscover the pleasures of Tuscan cuisine. There are numerous restaurants in the region and generally they serve excellent food.
ACTIVITIES IN THE REGION:
In addition to the towns of major historic interest such as Florence, Sienna or Lucca you can discover such pearls of the Tuscan heritage as San Gimignano or Volterra. And to relax a little, there is nothing better than a game of golf in the neighbouring hillsides or a relaxing massage in the thermal baths of Casciana!
