About Podere Casentino
It’s a joy to drive through Tuscany’s vineyards, olive groves, lemon trees and cypress forests. Yet it’s so much more pleasurable when you know that a supremely secluded and luxurious destination like Podere Casentino awaits you.
This villa in Tuscany is a sanctuary from stress. And getting here is part of the relaxing experience. Turn off the quiet road that takes you from charming Talla towards the majestic mountains. On an unpaved road you’re taken into a forest’s embrace. The trees magically guide you to the seclusion of your villa. Here, surrounded by immaculate lawns, the majestic mountains of Arezzo provide your scenic backdrop.
The delightful grounds that surround Podere Casentino are furnished with outside sitting and dining areas and centred on a hand-painted fountain. By this is the glamorous pool boasts an outdoor kitchen and barbecue. A path beyond this leads to a relaxing river and unspoilt chestnut, beech and oak tree forests.
The Tuscan villa itself is just as idyllic. Terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and rustic chic furniture set the tone. Its windows take full advantage of the views over lush green hills. In the main building there are generously sized communal areas, as well as five en suite bedrooms. The annex offers a further bedroom and a sauna.
And that’s a villa in Tuscany that’s a pleasure to drive to but a joy to arrive at.
