Hotel Villa Casagrande
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2008

Settling on a hotel by four moderately particular travellers located in England and Australia has the potential for disaster. We agreed on the Villa Cassagrande with slight reservations based on mixed reviews. None of us were disappointed however with our collective choice. The hotel is clean, well maintained and has plenty of character. Reception staff were welcoming, efficient and helpful. We had rooms in the older part of the hotel and looked over the gardens and courtyard at the back. The rooms were fair sized for Europe but we had the advantage of using the secluded sitting room next to our rooms so we felt like we had plenty of space. One night we ate at the restaurant attached to the hotel. A more than adequate meal but not outstanding. For the rest of our stay we ate in the town which has a range of places to eat. The standout restaurant is the CD Cafe, Piazza Averani, 13 run by Deno and his wife. The meals were excellent, different menu each day; highly recommended. Breakfast at the hotel was adequate but barely. Given the market it aims at the hotel should have made more effort. Biggest gripe was the lack of fruit (we're talking Italy in early Autumn!) and the fact that they ran out of basics rather quickly. They did produce more, but you had to ask for things that had disappeared. We got the impression that they found dealing with breakfast rush a bit hard to manage. Our only complaint of substance was to do with access to the hotel's guest laundry. There was only one key! So if you wanted to use the iron but someone else had the key and was using washing machine - bad luck, no ironing. In the end we used the laundromat near the hotel. Figline is a working town, the centre of which is oldish and has sufficient character to be of (limited) interest. The town makes a good base however from which to explore Tuscany or go by train to Florence. Would we stay again? Probably not but only because there are so many other interesting places to visit in Tuscany. We'd make the effort to visit Deno for a meal though. Taken all together, a pleasant stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our Honeymoon as it was reccomended by some friends who have stayed here many times and could not fault anything. The rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable and the staff could not have been more helpful on reception. The restaurant serves great Tuscan food and is well priced. The location is good also for travelling to Florence, only 20 mins on the train and station is only 5 mins walk through the square. A great peaceful get away from sight seeing in the busy cities. Cannot wait to go again!

We stayed here for one night. The hotel itself is clean, modern, and seems well-run. But its front door is located a few feet from a very busy road. There are no views to speak of. Notice that all of the hotel's posted pictures show only the back of the hotel!

This hotel is an appropriate place to stay for one night on the way to somewhere else, or perhaps if you were staying in the area for business. I would not recommend it for those vacationing in Tuscany, as the location couldn't be less charming. It is situated right on an unattractive stretch of Figline Valdarno, a seedy working class town which has little to offer except the train and access to the highway. I can't believe this place is posing as a vacation spot!

The final days of our Italian vacation were spent at Villa Casagrande. The highlight was definitely the four hour cooking class with Senora Paolo. She was so warm and welcoming to all of us -- men and women. We chopped (very fine!), stirred, kneaded, rolled, cut, and tasted our way through a fabulous dinner. Daniella did her best to interpret our questions and get the answers we needed to do the same things at home..... right! This was pricey, but well worth the money. It was an evening of fun and great food and wine that will never be forgotten.
The hotel --- very modern in the midst of a 13th century castle. The bathrooms were the roomiest of any in Italy. A pleasure to be able to actually open the window or run the a/c as needed. The front desk staff was courteous, but certainly didn't go out of their way. Unlike most of our other hotels, we carried our own baggage, etc. to our rooms. Not a big deal... just a little inconvenient.
We enjoyed the beautiful rear gardens.... a nice secret behind the castle! A short walk to the village square for dinner or lunch with recommendations from the staff. This is where we finally found other diners during mealtime -- 7p.m - 11p.m. Too bad the stores were closed for their afternoon siestas when we returned for lunch the following day. First time our credit cards were cooled mid-day!!
We would definitely return for another class with Paolo. Everyone should try it. Hope the olive oil arrives this week!

Booked this hotel last minute as part of a package.
But what a find, a quiet oasis on the edge of the village of Figline Valdarne. The hotel is beautifully restored with a/c in reception and rooms. Very friendly staff, good breakfast.
Beautiful walled gardens. 5 mins stroll from village square.
From FV it is 25 mins by train to Florence, 30 mins drive to Greve in Chianti, 90 mins drive to Sienna (through gorgeous Tuscan landscape). and about an hour drive to San Gimignano so well suited as a base for touring.
(Bring GPS or a navigator.)
