We spent five nights at this 15th century villa which has been masterfully turned into a stunning hotel. The location is an easy train journey to Florence, or a great base for road tripping to the many villages and medieval towns of Tuscany. We loved the buffet breakfast with so many hot and cold options, and dining in the armoury rooms was always a pleasure. The treat of our stay was the tour of the Serrestori family apartments and wine cellars before a wine and olive oil tasting like no other with the amazing Anna. We hope to return to Villa Casagrande one day and highly recommend anyone stay several days here to fully enjoy the outstanding hospitality and ambience.
Great reception and was served a glass of wine upon check in. Beautiful building and the surrounding. I would have love to stay longer there as we were only spending a night after our outlet shopping. Room is spacious and breakfast is simple and good. We would like to stay here again.
Our kids sent us here to celebrate our birthdays. This place couldn't be more perfect. Breakfast was wonderful everyday. Dinner in both restaurants was unbelievably good. Plenty of space on the grounds to relax and hear the birds and church bells and nothing else. The workers greet you and treat you so well. Always helpful.
A complete Apartment in a Villa built in 1400’s?!?
The main thing we booked for our Italy trip after our flights was our 5 nights at the Villa Casagrande 40 mins by train from Florence/ Firenze. Because I wanted to control my food (mostly GF, Dairy free) we chose an apartment where we could shop and have as “home base” for the last part of our Italy adventure. The rooms look just like their website. The village is definitely a back door experience as Rick Steve’ calls these local touches. The staff at the Villa Casagrande were so quickly communicative- whether we had late night questions before arriving or how do we use the towel warmer in the apartment to uh oh- we’re out late again! They responded immediately and had someone open the back door when we took the very last train home. The spa treatments were lovely and as we never used the entry to the hot tub and saunas, they took those charges off our bill. Do the tour and wine tasting! Highlight of our Italy experience as ANNA is both a historian and a sommelier- she took us into rooms that are only available with an escort and we saw art and historical artifacts that were better than at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence! The Villa Casagrande wines were wonderful- buy a bottle for your room- about $6-8! The main drawback is the only way into town is that train- that after a certain time only runs hourly and stops at every hamlet! We will see if our review changes after trying to get to the airport on time for our flight home!
We spent 5 nights at the Casagrande in Figline. The room was comfortable and large. Plenty of room for the two of us. Breakfast was excellent every morning and included hot as well as pastry’s. The town square is within walking distance where there are many caffe’s and ristorantes. There are cooking classes on sight for a fee but well worth it!. We did the pizza making class. It was wonderful! Made pizza, bruschetta, gnocchi and biscotti. Also a wine tasting and tour. Train station is also within a 15 min walk.
