Casale Flavia is situated in Pieve di Chio, in the middle of unspoilt Tuscan countryside. It is about 6 Kilometres from Castiglion Fiorentino an Etruscan medieval town that lies between the valleys of Valle di Chio and Valle di Chiana. All of the beautiful towns and cities of Tuscany and Umbria such as Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Perugia are all within easy reach by train or bus. Castiglion Fiorentino has fine sports and leisure facilities such as an Olimpic-sized swimming pool and indoor and outdoor tennis courts. Throughout the year one can discover the beautiful surrounding hills and countryside both on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. “Il Casolare Flavia” is an elegant and spacious farmhouse. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen. The large living room also has traditional Tuscan fire-place and television. Together with a car park there is also a wood oven outside, "
Paola and her family were very gracious hosts. Her husband and friend Adelma (who spoke English) met us in town and guided us to the Pieve di Chio community. This is a very charming home in good condition (they even have screens on the windows - a very rare item in Italy!). Very quiet area among fields of flowers, grapes and olive trees. It's a bit of a drive to town and the supermarket, but the countryside is beautiful. We had a great time taking day trips from here and had all the comforts of home on our return. The local winery (Santo Stefano - 2.5km up the road) makes excellent wine and honey. This was a great trip!
Casale Flavia was a great experience for my family. We were met by Paola's husband Samat who was gracious and lovely. Their home is beautiful and filled with everything we needed for our vacation. We would definitely use their house again when traveling back to Italy.
