Formerly a priest’s house, Casale la Canonica clusters behind the church that greets you at the top of the drive. Set in its own grounds and curved around a paved courtyard, the property, with its different segments and levels, has the appearance of a minuscule hamlet. With six generous bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, this is a wonderful option for parties of up to 12 people, be they groups of extended family or friends. Siena, San Gimignano and Florence are within easy reach for days out and the Chianti towns of Castellina and Radda are close enough to walk to.
For days at home, the generous pool is steps away from the villa. Surrounding greenery makes this completely private. Shallow and deep ends will please swimmers of all abilities. A simple gazebo to one side is a great spot for al-fresco meals. But the villa’s atmospheric, spacious interiors which speak of its history – oil paintings add richness to the clean white-washed walls, terracotta floors and beamed ceilings – also provide lovely places for retreat.

Our Thoughts
The priest had it made: this is a fabulous property. It’s substantial yet airy and full of character, with each room different from the next, in a wonderful position for some of Tuscany’s urban gems, yet deliciously private and away from it all. Antique furnishings constantly catch the eye, yet the interiors are pleasingly uncluttered and elegant. All this with a well-equipped modern kitchen, great pool and en-suites for almost every bedroom. You can’t go wrong.
Notes
Six bedrooms. Seven bathrooms, five en-suite. Steps between many rooms may make it difficult for anyone in the party with mobility issues. The neighbouring church is used just a few times per year.
Approach road: 500m of good unpaved road

Prachtig huis, mooi decor. Ruim, veel badkamers, ideaal voor meerdere gezinnen. Fijne keuken en terras met grote tafel. Prima zwembad. Besloten, veel privacy, maar - hoewel op een heuvel - vanuit het huis en de tuin geen uitzicht over de omgeving.
Local attractions Restaurant op 200 m afstand onderaan het gehucht is een aanrader.

We hebben met vier volwassenen en vijf kinderen (leeftijd 10-17) een super fijne week gehad in Casale la Canonica. Het huis is prachtig, het zwembad super!! Het was erg warm, het zwembad zorgde voor een heerlijke verkoeling.
Local attractions Er zijn ontelbare fijne restaurants en bezienswaardigheden in de buurt. Het restaurantje onderaan de inrit is een echte aanrader. Lekker eten, vriendelijke bediening en heerlijke wijn.

Wir haben ein wunderschönes Haus mit Pool vorgefunden. Die Lokalitäten sind sehr grosszügig angelegt. Der Garten ist wunderschön, könnte jedoch noch etwas besser gepflegt werden. Der Hausverwalter Francesco war sehr aufmerksam und hat uns aufs Beste betreut. Defekte Liegestühle und Sonnenschirme hat er unverzüglich ersetzt. Der Service ist sogar soweit gegangen, dass er uns ein vergessenes Natel in die Schweiz geschickt hat.
Local attractions Die umliegenden Städtchen sind sehr schön und bieten einen angenehmen Aufenthalt mit guten Restaurants. Die Gegend mit ihren Olivenbäumen und Weinbergen ist unvergleichlich.

We are a family of 12, 6 adults and 6 children ranging from 13 down to 11 weeks. All had a great time. The layout of the villa is clever with plenty of space to retreat to and although the kitchen area is not huge and the sitting room onto which it opens out is not huge either, the way the space is planned meant that meal preparation was easy and supervision of children possible at the same time. Our children all got on very well with each other and there was not one cross moment. I was worried about the temperature of the pool (end of May) but although it was cold it did not deter even the smallest child. Our cautious 5 year old made great strides with his swimming and they all raved about the pool. I loved waking up in the morning to the sound of the cuckoo outside the bedroom. A short walk outside the villa gives a view of the amazing countryside. Francesco was quick to respond when we had a power cut and he is delightful. We were extremely grateful for the games/activities provided by To Tuscany. They were excellent and really added value to our holiday. Very interesting booklet about the history of Pietrafitta (in English). The hedge surrounding the property was in flower and had a fantastic scent, as well as looking beautiful.
Local attractions We did get out and about. Radda was our favourite and our daughter loved the market in Poggibonsi. We got to Siena which was stunning and Castellina of course. But the younger children found the windy roads difficult and travel sickness was an issue so we spent a lot of time in the villa - definitely our favourite attraction!

Very nice property and great property manager Natalia of ACTIO Management Property Service who met when we arrived! She handled everything we needed during our 2 week stay. Knowing she was available was a real comfort. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

Magnifique maison la piscine est superbe, nous étions 6 adultes et 6 enfants de 10 à 13 ans. Nous avions beaucoup de peine à quitter la maison pour partir en visite tellement nous étions bien. Le chant du coq au loin et le roucoulement des pigeons étaient nos seuls voisins. La région est belle et tranquille.

Our family group of 8 adults and 2 teenagers spent two weeks at the villa. First of all, the villa is beautiful! The house and grounds exceeded our expectations. The house is well equipped and had everything we needed to prepare meals and be comfortable. The kids loved the pool which was always sparkling clean. The keyholder for the villa, Natalia, was wonderful! She was available whenever we had a question or a problem. She even brought us the most wonderful pastries for breakfast one morning. We left feeling like we had made a new friend. We had been warned about the driveway being very bumpy and not having room to park from previous reviews, but although the driveway is bumpy, it is definitely not unmanageable. We had two cars, one a 7 person van, and never had trouble finding a place to park them inside the gate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa and To Tuscany to friends and family who were planning a trip to Italy. It has been a positive experience from beginning to end. Thanks for a magical vacation!
Local attractions Gelateria di Castellina south of town on SR 222 at the intersection of SR 51. The best gelato we had, and it was so close we often drove into town just for gelato! Wonderful! (The lemon was my favorite!) Pizzeria il Fondaccio in Castellina. Fantastic pizza and you can get it boxed to go. We had a pizza feast in the gazebo at the villa. We also ate inside one night, and in their outdoor dining area another night.
