Podere La Casetta is a lovely restored estate of 7 little villas located about 2km from the hill top town of Montaione. It is a working farm which produces its own olive oil and wine. It is surrounded by the farm olive groves.

The pool is down a short path, and protected from the villas by a little forest, which provides it with plenty of privacy. There are two pools, a larger, deeper one and a baby pool. Around them are several places to relax.

The estate is composed of two buildings which house the 7 villas and a reception area. Throughout the estate the gardens are well maintained and offer pretty views through the surrounding olive grove. To one side Montaione can be seen on the hill across the property's olive grove and Vineyard.

The swimming pool is located 150 meters away from the buildings that make up the estate. It is surrounded by olive groves and forests, through which there can be seen the distant hills. Off to one side there are views of the hill top town of Montaione.

Around the pool are wooden pergolas shading tables with chairs, while several sun beds are dotted here and there on the terracotta paved deck surrounding the pool. There are two parts to the pool, a larger, deep adult pool which measures 7x15metres and is 1.5 metres deep, attached to one side is the baby pool which is 1 metre deep. Metal steps provide access to the crystal water. The pool is open from 15th May to 15th September, weather permitting.

Die Anlage war grossartig und entsprach exakt der Beschreibung und Darstellung.
La Cantina liegt sehr ruhig und ländlich direkt bei der Kleinstadt Montaione, welche aber über gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants verfügt
Durch die zentrale Lage zwischen Pisa und Florenz standen uns viele Optionen offen.
Wir haben besonders den abendlichen Sonnenuntergang mit Blick über das Tal auf der Terrasse genossen. Die Betreuung was ausgesprochen aufmerksam und nett.
Local attractions In Montaione gibt es einige gute Restaurants. Wir fanden die OSTERIA DEL PESCH ROSSO in der Via Chiarenti 14 besonders lecker. Erstklassige Küche, nicht abgehoben sondern bodenständig mit guten lokalen Weinen zu absolut freundlichen Preisen. Für die Fahrt nach Florenz empfehlen wir ab Empoli die Bahn zu nehmen. Das ist deutlich entspannter und man kommt direkt schon im Zentrum raus. Nach Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena oder Volterra kommt man auch mit dem Auto gut rein.
