Villa Casagrande allows you to spend the night in what was one of the grandest villas outside Florence. Built in a corner of the town's fortification, one can but feel the sense of insecurity that must have prevailed at that time. The modern facilities are excellent, and the location perfect for easy access to the small town. However, there are some negatives that weigh on my rating: 1) while the reception is competent and courteous, there is no offer to help with luggage or to provide assistance in carrying them downstairs to the room (no lift); 2) the outdoor swimming pool is not on the villa's premises and requires crossing the road, walking up a hill, and finding out it is overcrowded - a non-starter; 3) the indoor swimming pool is OK but does not have enough chaise-lounges for all of the guests; 4) the beautiful Italian garden used on the website is actually in need of maintenance.
