A farmhouse in walking distance to a village

La Corte is a beautiful restored farmhouse with a private pool, located at the end of a short drive on a hill top amongst olive groves. The detached house is part of a historic estate - one of Tuscany's most famous wineries - covering 246 hectares of land.

Overlooking the vineyards the 300-year-old building is within walking distance of San Casciano. It has retained its original façade, terracotta floors and white-washed beamed ceilings. The comfortable rooms are tastefully decorated and let in plenty of natural light.

All the bedrooms are air-conditioned and feature a modern en suite bathroom. With 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms 14 people can be accommodated comfortably.If your group is larger than 14 people another bedroom and bathroom can eventually be opened additionally (to be requested when booking).

There is a well-equipped kitchen with a bread oven, the kitchen leads into the blue-washed dining room with French doors and then out to the shaded courtyard at the back, which includes a lovely dining area for al fresco meals.

A few steps away, the private pool is set on a patio with its own shaded area for relaxing. A third shaded area is in front of the house and offers a comfortable living area under the sky. The beautiful views of the typical Tuscan vineyards and olive groves that surround the hills can be enjoyed from anywhere in the garden.

The town of San Casciano is just 1.5 km from the farmhouse. You can walk into the charming town for lunch or dinner, or have dinner in the private, family-run Enoteca of the winery. The Enoteca also hosts wonderful wine tastings as well as a tour of the famous estate with its nearby Renaissance villa can also be enjoyed.

San Casciano offers a good choice of excellent restaurants, a geleteria, several Cappuccino bars, all kind of grocery shops, a cinema, a bank, a post office and a picturesque weekly market every Monday morning. If you are traveling in the cooler months, you can enjoy the public indoor heated swimming pool in San Casciano, just 500 meters from the house.

The property is located only 16 km south of Florence, close to the expressway that connects Florence with Siena. Florence is only a 15-minute drive away. The convenient location of the house, just 1.5 km from the nearest bus stop, even makes it possible to visit Florence without a car: during the week, the buses run regularly from San Casciano to Florence in about 1.5 hours. In Florence, the bus stops at the central station, which is in the heart of the city - from the Santa Maria Novella train station to the Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery it is only a short walk.

La Corte is suitable for all those who enjoy the rural life and daily work of a Fattoria, such as olive oil and wine production are interested. Finest vintage wines are stored in large barrels, and the olive oil is delicious. It is a lovely home for families and groups as it is large and offers plenty of outdoor space. The location is perfect for exploring central Tuscany and the surroundings are simply breathtaking.

The estate has another small holiday structure (La Scala / also featured in our portfolio), a small apartment for 4 people. It does not disturb the privacy of the La Corte guests since it is at a distance of approx. 300 metres, it can not be seen, it has its own access road and even its own pool.

Additional amenities: 4-ring gas hob, Airport distance:Florence 25 km Pisa 118 km Rome 290 km, Bread oven in the kitchen, Dog welcome, Electric coffee machine, Hair dryers, Large fridge with freezer and icemaker, Mixer, Mosquito nets for all beds, Pool: 5 x 9m, Private Chef, Terrace for al fresco dining to seat 16 people
