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.
Old Tuscan castle in small Tuscan town of Figline lots of restaurants near by. Has a wonderful cooking school with a winery next door. Beautiful Tuscan countryside, with easy access to many Tuscan towns and lots of shopping.
We were a group of 6 friends. My friend slipped on the step ion her way into the restaurant to buy water. This was a direct result of the step being worn away and no lights on in the area despite the restaurant being open. She split her head open very badly, had 30 stitches and was an extremely traumatic event for all 6 of us, especially my friend. The receptionist on at the time and the chef were great when the Accident happened. The rest of the stay and the hotel very very poor. No-one enquired about my friends welfare or ours. There was no offer of help. We had to ask for ice packs etc. The hotel manager said they didn't want to knock on the door and disturb us but the cleaners did so that was a poor excuse. Also the only thing fine about the area to prevent others hurting themselves was a brighter light. They didn't put up warning signage or fix the step. Our holiday and stay was ruined. I would not recommend this hotel due this. My friend did not pay for her stay but the rest of us were charged, despite just sitting in the room to care for our friend and cancelling any plans.
