    Overview

    A charming country house between Tuscany and Umbria

    Casoro has a lovely pastoral setting. The property is located between two lakes: Lago di Chiusi, which is visible from the property, and the larger Lago Trasimeno, which is only a short distance away. Chiusi, Sarteano and Chianciano are visible from the garden area, as well as Monte Amiata and Monte Cetona, two of the highest peaks in Tuscany. The country lane that passes by Casoro is lightly trafficked and it offers quick access to the two small villages Vaiano and Gioiella, both 2 minutes away from Casoro, each one with stores for basic shopping. The town of Chiusi with supermarkets, shops, restaurants and train station is only 5 miles away. Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno and Todi are within an easy distance. But we also highly recommend a visit to the small medieval “borghi” in the area, full of hidden treasures such as Chiusi, Paciano, Castiglione del Lago, Città della Pieve. Rome and Florence are 2 hours by car and 1 hour by train. 

    The estate was originally a unique building lived by the peasants` families, then it was divided into two independent sections belonging now to two different owners. The here offered Casoro house has its private garden and its own pool. It is seperated by a an iron fence with winding jasmine hedges from the other house. A stone paved patio flank the entrance door and has been furnished for al fresco meals. Beyond is the garden with the pool set amongst herbs bushes and olive trees, with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

    The house has been fully restored in 2011. The interiour is an atmospheric ambience designed with loving care for details. The layout and the decoration were a project of the property owner Benedetta. She invested a lot of time and love in choosing the right marble, tiles and light fixtures for the kitchen and the bathrooms, and in finding the right material for the sofas and armchairs as well as having a few choice pieces of antique family furniture restored. The ground floor of Casoro measures 170 square metres and can comfortably sleep 6 people on the ground floor. The upper floor measures 120 square metres and sleeps 4 more guests.

    Places of interest

    The property's location makes excursions to Siena, Assisi, Orvieto, Perugia, Arezzo and Florence an easy day trip. But the area below Siena, stretching from the monastery of Monte Oliveto to Montalcino and Montepulciano offers some rewarding sites that are well worth a visit.

    In San Quirico d'Orcia make sure you see the Horti Leonini, an early Renaissance garden, as well as the western door in the city wall and the Collegiata (main church).

    Montalcino is beautifully situated on a hill inhabited since Etruscan times, swathed in vineyards and olive groves. It is a quiet, affluent, attractive town with pretty buildings and flower-filled squares, and many shops selling the Brunello di Montalcino.

    Montepulcino is a graceful Tuscan hill town, best known for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which was being praised by connoisseurs over 200 years ago and can certainly contend with Italy's best today.

    Pienza, the unfinished 'utopian' city, was commissioned by Pope Pius II in 1459.

    Chiusi is one of our favourites because of its unpretentious liveliness. Compared to Montepulciano it is uncontaminated by tourism. Chiusi has a railway station - from here it is a quick ride to the city center of Rome.

    Monticchiello is a pleasant walled village, whose crooked watch-tower is visible from afar. Next to the church is a small shop which sells local linens (towels, bedspreads) and materials in pure linen. They use traditional methods and patterns and the results are extremely attractive.

    Visit the abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore and the semi-derelict monastery of Sant'Anna in Camprena - a very romantic setting which served as location for the film The English Patient.

    Sant'Antimo is surely one of the loveliest Romanesque buildings in all of Italy. It is hard to imagine a more sympathetic combination of architectural grace and natural setting.

    Sarteano fits our picture of an unspoilt Italian village. The main square has a nice bar where you can sit outside. On the square below, in the afternoon a different bar serves excellent take away pizza.

    And last but not least the landscape in this region of Tuscany is spectacular: The Crete Senesi are the eroded clay hills in the Orcia valley. These strange, pale, barren looking slopes, with their bare cliffs, broken gullies and white Jurassic limestone, look altogehter more lunar than terrestial.

    Pool in winter?

    Tuscany is famous for its Hot springs, belonging to a geothermical system that more or less encircles Monte Amiata, the most spectacular being Saturnia in the south west of the region. Steaming water collects in a number of white limestone basins - a rare natural spectacle and great fun to bathe in! Swimming possible both in the natural basins and in smart thermal baths. Saturnia offers a wide range of comforts and even a sauna.

    Close to the property is Bagno Vignoni which has been popular since Etruscan times. St. Catherine of Siena is said to have appreciated its thearpeutic qualities, as is Lorenzo the Magnificent, whose family built the splendid arcaded pool - a kind of flooded, bubbling piazza, famously used by Tarkowsky for some of the more surreal passages of his film Nolstalgia. Not far from this antique piazza there is a hotel with a lovely open air swimming pool, fed from hot springs. This is also available to external guests.

    Bagni San Filippo may go into the books as the world's smallest thermal spa - a telephone booth, a few old houses, outdoor spring in the middle of the woods with glistening limestone formations and one small hotel with a public pool.

    The Montepulciano thermal springs can also be enjoyed in an indoor thermal swimming pool.

    Just 22 km from the property you will find the thermal spa Terme di Chianciano with a highly modern health and thermal centre. Those wanting to combine holidays with a wellness break can enjoy fango baths, cosmetic and therapeutic treatments, solarium, massages and hydromassages. Have yourself thoroughly pampered! Just relax here!

    Ho trascorso in compagnia di amici quest'ultimo we in questo casolare di campagna, con vista magica sul Lago di Chiusi, ubicato tra Toscana e Umbria... La casa grazie al ricercato gusto della sua padrona accoglie i suoi ospiti con l'eleganza dell'arredo e il calore dei complementi. Ogni comfort è presente nelle stanze da letto come nel salone e nella cucina dal gusto toscano dove si dispone di ogni suppellettile nel medesimo stile. Perfetta location per trascorrere qualche giorno di relax, cultura e natura sentendosi come a casa propria! Dimenticavo... nel bel giardino c'è anche una piscina... che data la stagione non era ancora fruibile.... motivo in più per tornarci in estate!

    Non mi capitava da tempo di dormire per 9 h continuative complici il silenzio e la bellezza del Podere e dei luoghi circostanti ! In posizione panoramica difronte al lago di Chiusi e all'enigmatica tomba etrusca del Paradiso, circondato dalla meravigliosa campagna toscana, strategicamente situato tra Toscana ed Umbria, rifinito splendidamente nei dettagli curati. Weekend all'insegna delle visite nei bei paesini circostanti, relax e gastronomia al top. Tornerò presto per approfondire anche gli itinerari cicloturistici della zona così come consigliato dal gentile e competente gestore sig. Emiliano.

    abbiamo tracorso il ponte dell immacolata presso questo casolare di campagna dietro consiglio di amici. è stato un soggiorno meraviglioso. è un casolare rifinito di lusso, con grande camino in travertino nel salone principale, camere da letto grandi con materassi comodissimi. poi la posizione della struttura al confine tra toscana ed umbria, comoda per raggiungere i principali centri storici della zona a soli 20 30 minuti di auto.

    Vorrei complimentarmi con proprietario e gestore di questo meraviglioso casale di campagna, situato tra Umbria e Toscana in prossimità del lago di Chiusi e a breve distanza con quello Trasimeno. Abbiamo pernottato nell'appartamento a pian terreno, ambiente elegante e accogliente a vista piscina con tutto il prato intorno al casale. Avevamo a disposizione un grande salotto accogliente per rilassarsi con l'angolo lettura, bella cicogna tipicamente di campagna con pergolato per cenare fuori e a disposizione tre camere da letto con tre bagni. In questa occasione abbiamo ospitato degli amici dando loro la possibilità di essere indipendenti anche se eravamo tutti insieme. Abbiamo fatto il bagno alle 2 di mattina, era meraviglioso, acqua calda, gran silenzio, avendo a disposizione nostra lettini, sdraio e tavolino con champagne. ...mi sembrava di stare in Sardegna. .....
    Cosa Dire tutto perfetto luogo ideale per cene, feste, relax, week end e non solo. Prato e ambiente verde curatissimo, abbiamo con ammirazione ascoltato tutti i dettagli che il giardiniere ci ha con molto piacere spiegato nei minimi dettagli....le varie fasi di mantenimento e professionalità che serve per dare e regalarci a noi questa bellezza. Vorrei ritornare a festeggiare i miei 40 anni a breve !

    Dopo vari soggiorni in questo incantevole casale circondato da dolci colline e con rilassante vista lago, non posso che consigliare questo posto a chi desidera una struttura country chic, rifinita di tutto punto, di ottimo gusto e curata in ogni sua parte. Le stanze per gli ospiti sono arredate con particolare raffinatezza e ispirano un senso di caldo romanticismo anche alle persone più fredde. Bagno privato anche con vasca idromassaggio e Wifi gratis. La grande cucina -completa di tutto- fa venir voglia di spadellare anche a chi, come me, è un po’ pigro. Insomma un posto da godersi sia all’interno, quando si ricercaun pò di tepore in autunno/inverno, sia all’esterno d’estate quando si prende il sole a bordo piscina o nuotando. Di notte suggerisco anche di volgere lo sguardo verso il bel cielo, comodamente sdraiati sui lettini con una copertina, per una la romantica conta delle stelle… devo aggiungere altro?
