Chiara was a wonderful host and very welcoming and helpful. Location is good if you want to be close to Florence and still accessible to other parts of Tuscany. Our apt was very comfortable - would recommend for 4 people. Had a great meal right down the road at Trattoria Ponterotto.
Absolutely breathtaking views on chaira and tomasso's property. It was a wonderful break from the fast paced cities we had been to in Italy. They were great hosts in a beautiful apartment. Just be aware of the taxes that Italy requires that are not in your final price on air bnb. If you have the time, definitely take a cooking lesson with chiara, and try the wine! Both are fantastic!
A beautiful apartment in a beautiful setting with wonderful hosts! I would agree with other guests that it all looks even better than the photographs. They make their own wine which is lovely and a very good price, as is their honey, and their olive oil. We had a lovely personal greeting from their parents and a complimentary bottle of wine (as Thommaso & Chiara were at a wedding) on arrival at midnight and then afterwards Chiara was very helpful with suggesting places to visit. The apartment is lovely and very well equipped, surrounded by countryside and so very peaceful, but within a good proximity of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa. The town of San Casciano is 5-10 minutes away by car and has a supermarket and everything you need, and there is a lovely restaurant called Casalta, again 5-10 minutes away which is reasonably priced and serves excellent food!
Tommaso and Chiara - thank you so much for a relaxing and peaceful week at your beautiful farm! It was exactly what we were hoping for - and more!
The apartment is so lovely with great views and lots of space. We were able to make our own meals in the well-equipped kitchen, and really enjoyed the BBQ and outdoor area for dining, sunbathing and relaxing.
The location is perfect - a short drive from Florence, Siena and San Gimignano (definitely worth a visit) and the town of San Casciano is charming, with a decent-sized supermarket and some nice restaurants.
If you're looking for picture-perfect Tuscany, here it is! Tommaso and Chiara are the perfect hosts and we couldn't have been happier. We wished we'd stayed longer!
We recently spend two weeks at Casale le Lame using it as a hub for exploring Florence, and we will recommend it to anyone. However as we had a long stay we also spend a lot of time at the appartment. Chiara and Tommaso are very kind and attentive hosts. Tommaso even drove down to pick me up as he had seen me walking to the nearby shop and it started to rain. The house is beautifully situated on a hillside with a glorous view of the surrounding hills. The appartment was sparkling clean and very cosy. We really felt at home there and would love to come back sometime in the future.
Chiara & Tommaso's house was fantastic. You live in the countryside for a few days.
The pool and barbeque work perfectly. You can also purchase chianti wine from the farm and other amenities.
It is also a great location as it is only 30 mins from Florence and 40 mins to Siena. 50 mins to Pisa and 40 mins to Lucca.
Chiara even brought us eggs from their chickens one morning. Unfortunately a fox had been eating some of the chickens at night so there were not any eggs on other mornings.
Overall a pleasant experience. Thank you Tommaso & Chiara
If there were two words that best describe our stay in CASALE LE LAME, it would be "Super" and "Perfecto"! The place is more beautiful than the pictures shown at the Casale Site of Air BnB. In fact, the pictures do not do justice to the whole authentic countryside experience! Our hosts, Tommaso and Chiara were very accommodating and helpful with almost everything - from giving us directions to follow our itinerary in Firenze and recommending places where to get our groceries, where to eat good pizza, pasta (Ristorante Casalta) and gelato. Chiara suggested we go visit Antinori Vineyard, an ultra- modern winery & museum where we can have wine-tasting and she even accompanied us in going there. She also recommended attending the village square's Street Food Festival and we were so glad we did because it was truly an awesome experience, an immersion of some sort! There were wines and beer flowing, and numerous food stalls that sell the best of what Chianti and the rest of the world have to offer - Chianti clasico wines, italian, spanish, argentinian and other street foods.
I strongly suggest renting a car to be able to get around Florence easily. From Casale Le Lame, we were able to go to Pisa and The Mall (outlet shops of Prada, Gucci, Christian Dior, Burberry, to name a few). We were also able to go to the city of Florence where we bought good leather wear (bags, shoes, wallets, belts). These places are all within a 45-minute drive from Casale.
We spent our last evening by getting take out food (again,pizza from Casalta, we just couldn't get enough of their pizza!), and hanging out at the gazebo of Casale eating and drinking wine with our hosts who prepared salad with olive oil dressing and fried artichokes and sage covered in beer batter (the veggies were freshly picked from their vegetable garden) YUM! When the merriment ended, it was time to pack our things for our early morning flight. It was then that we realized we should've allotted a longer time for our Tuscany Trip and spent more time at Casale.
Tuscany was truly a memorable experience, all because of a wonderful place called Casale Le Lame and our new-found friends, our wonderful hosts - Tommaso and Chiara. Oh, and let me not forget sweet Arlock, their 2-yr old Vizla - we'll miss you, boy!
