Il Casale is a lovely, relaxing retreat, but it is far more rustic than the website suggests. Our apartment was quite large, with a bedroom, living room/dining room, full kitchen and two bathrooms. The bedroom had a double bed (really two singles pushed together) plus another single bed, antique dresser, chest and wardrobe. In the living room, a large sofa,...

Beautiful location for touring Tuscany. We loved the amenities - pool, kitchen,laundry. The location is walking distance to grocery and hike to Cortona. Train station is nearby. We appreciated the general quiet atmosphere and rustic surroundings. Would reccomend this location to anyone interested in touring Tuscany with a few days to soak in the sun by the pool.

I had a wonderful experience at Il Casale villas. The owners were friendly and the grounds were beautiful. It made for the best trip to Italy. The pool was immaculate and open for swimming at all hours. The rooms were spacious and fully equipped for cooking.

My wife and I stayed here in may 2007. We were looking for a place that had a country feel with some piece and quite and near to a town. Our stay here did not provide any of this. Don't believe the advert of 3km to Cortona, it's more like 5km and the local taxi service was a rip off...

We spent 3 days and 2 nights at Il Casale and had a delightful time. We were travelling with our 15 year old son and 17 year old daughter, so having the extra space of a spacious 2 bedroom apartment was a welcome treat from hotel rooms. The villa was beautiful, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated, and it...

I have stayed at several hotels in Cortona and tried Il Casale last time I was there. It was a wonderful alternative to the regular hotels, with a very comfortable setting, great amenities (laundry, kitchen, air conditioning) and an exceedingly friendly staff. All that for less than the price of a regular hotel. If you are planning to stay in...

With my family and some friends we spent one week at il Casale near Cortona : it was fantastic! We begin in the morning going to the swimming-pool and then after our breakfast we went to visit wonderful places because we really were near the best places (Pienza, Montepluciano, Siena, Assisi...) and after our full day we went again to...

This place is all about getting your money. They quote the price (which seems reasonable) but then add on extra for everything which makes it exorbitant. They charged a substantial daily fee for heat (36 Euro for 3 days) and a "final cleaning" fee (40 Euro). These items should be included in the base price. In 3 days we never...

Tough place to describe. The various photos you find on the internet make it appear to be very large and rural, which isn't exactly the case. There are a number of other properties/roads surrounding it, which are fairly close. The property itself is very picturesque, but some of the area in the immediate vicinity isn't. The place also isn't quite...

We've stayed in quite a few spots like this and we thought this place was pretty bad. First off- it was run down and dirty ( maybe things have changed since 2002) Furniture was in bad shape. Dust was all over- my first stop was to the grocery store to buy cleaning products! The pool was filled with bugs. My...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Residence in The Valley of Etruscan Princes Il Casale, a residence out of a building of the year 500 sits in front of the towers, the domes the green and the sky of Cortona, a city of ancient origins, often visited by the ex French president Mitterand, and today by the University of Georgia (UGA). During august it is the chosen location for the National Antiques Showroom, where for the occasion, in the old rooms of Palazzo Casali and Palazzo Vagnotti, all the most important Italian exhibitors gather. The rural complex is situated nearby the San Pietro a Cegliolo neighbourhood. Today it is a very comfortable and accommodating Residence, hidden in the silence of a spectacular and suggestive creation of the nature. It is laid out around a huge garden and the mother tower which overlooks the main building, which is also the oldest and still maintains the original features, like the double slope roof and the external stairway with a wide landing for the middle floor access. Behind one of the complexes' wings, finds room on over an hectare of green grass, the swimming pool which is for guests use only. Built with the most modern and efficient techniques its size is 16 by 8 meters. Furnished with deck chairs, comfortable pillows, umbrellas, showers and everything to help relax and fun for the kids, while watching Cortona's skyline. The garden is one of the most beautiful features of the complex. Very well grown and cared, shines with plenty of different flowers varieties and plants which give colour to the spectacular green English carpet. Here you'll find the tables and chairs for breakfast and dinner in a relaxing environment. The residence is made of 10 apartments, of which 8 sleep 4, one sleep 3, and one sleep 2. They all provide a stylish and elegant solution, floors and ceilings made with old cotto tiles and antique furniture aging around the year '800. Everything carefully planned and put together in respect of the most modern way of living. The apartments have two bedrooms, some of which with two double beds, some other with one double bed and a room with single beds, bathroom with shower and the living room with a cooking corner (fire spots, electrical oven, fridge, double sink). The general feeling is of a relaxing and "antique" luxurious environment. The bedrooms are especially thought in the way they've been furnished. Antique beds ('700 and '800), carpets who match the period of the furniture, practical closets also from the '800 style. Everything is planned to match with the floors and the ceilings. Apartment sleep 4: two bedrooms with two double beds or one double bed and two single beds, bathroom with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped. Apartment sleep 3: one big bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, two bathrooms with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped. Apartment sleep 2: one bedroom with a double bed, one bathroom with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped. Possibility to have additional beds on request. SERVICES: Every apartment has its own external space furnished with garden chairs and table, and inside provides Satellite TV, air conditioning/heating direct phone line.
