Description from manager

If rented for 10 people the upper floor will be opened additionally. It can be accessed by outdoor steps (not connected to the rest of the house by inner doors). It can be rented only in addition to the ground floor.

Ground floor (as above):

1 living room with fireplace

1 kitchen/dining room with fireplace

2 double bedrooms

1 twin bedroom

3 bathrooms (two with shower, one with bathtub)

1 laundry room

Upper floor:

1 living room with kitchen and dining area

1 double bedroom

1 twin bedroom

2 bathrooms (with shower)

UPPER FLOOR: Upon entering the top floor apartment from the exterior staircase you will be immediately taken by the large, beautifully decorated living /dining room, with three windows looking out over the rolling hills and the lake. An eco-fireplace will warm up your colder days and you will be surrounded by the nuances of purple, grey and white used both in the walls' painting and in the furniture. The bedrooms are spacious, full of light and very cozy; they look out over the garden with the pool and the countryside. The double bedroom is furnished with antique pieces of furniture dating the 18th century, while the twin bedroom has a more Provencal style and a prominence of white all around. It opens onto a terrace where you can enjoy reading and resting with the nice afternoon breeze. Both the bathrooms have walk-in showers and large windows with a view.

A charming country house between Tuscany and Umbria

Casoro has a lovely pastoral setting. The property is located between two lakes: Lago di Chiusi, which is visible from the property, and the larger Lago Trasimeno, which is only a short distance away.

The estate was originally a unique building lived by the peasants` families, then it was divided into two independent sections belonging now to two different owners. The here offered Casoro house has its private garden and its own pool. It is seperated by a an iron fence with winding jasmine hedges from the other house. A stone paved patio flank the entrance door and has been furnished for al fresco meals. Beyond is the garden with the private pool set amongst herbs bushes and olive trees, with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

The house has been fully restored in 2011. The interiour is an atmospheric ambience designed with loving care for details. The layout and the decoration were a project of the property owner Benedetta. She invested a lot of time and love in choosing the right marble, tiles and light fixtures for the kitchen and the bathrooms, and in finding the right material for the sofas and armchairs as well as having a few choice pieces of antique family furniture restored.

The ground floor of Casoro measures 170 square metres and comfortably sleeps 6 people. The upper floor, which is reached by an external staircase, measures 120 square metres and sleeps 4 more guests. Therefore, this is the perfect place for two families traveling together: as each floor has its own kitchen and living room, you can divide up your group easily. The outdoor dining area is large enough to seat 10 people around a table.

You can choose if renting the entire house for 10 people or just the ground floor for 6 people. If renting only the ground floor the upper floor will be closed (and not rented to anyone else).

Chiusi, Sarteano and Chianciano are visible from the garden area, as well as Monte Amiata and Monte Cetona, two of the highest peaks in Tuscany. The country lane that passes by Casoro is lightly trafficked and it offers quick access to the two small villages Vaiano and Gioiella, both 2 minutes away from Casoro, each one with stores for basic shopping. The town of Chiusi with supermarkets, shops, restaurants and train station is only 5 miles away. Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno and Todi are within an easy distance. But we also highly recommend a visit to the small medieval “borghi” in the area, full of hidden treasures such as Chiusi, Paciano, Castiglione del Lago, Città della Pieve. Rome and Florence are 2 hours by car and in approx. 1 hour by train.

Additional amenities: DVD player, Electric kettle, Internet WIFI connection on the ground floor, Iron and ironing board, Outdoor dining area for 10 people, Pool: 5 x 12m, Screens on all windows, Stove with oven, Two fireplaces
