Description

Casa Caldesi is a farmhouse between Val di Chio and Valdichiana, just 8 km from the town of Castiglion Fiorentino endowed with shops and services of all kinds. In its picturesque medieval streets surrounded by ancient buildings, trattorias and typical Tuscan restaurants you will taste the most famous dishes of the country cuisine and good local wine.
The house is situated on the top of the Foce pass, in the tiny village of Caldesi, from where you can enjoy an incredible view of the Val di Chio, which with its green wooded hills connects the Valdichiana to the Valtiberina and the border with Umbria. From here you will be able to make easy day trips to Umbria, Lake Trasimeno, Arezzo, Sansepolcro.

The renovated old farmhouse comprises on the ground floor some rooms occasionally used by the owners and the two guest apartments on the upper floor. An external stone staircase leads to a private sun terrace furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco. From the terrace you will find both the access to the flats and, by climbing a few steps, to the beautiful swimming pool (size m. 10x5, depth m. 1-1,40), private and equipped with sun beds and umbrellas. It is on the terrace that you will spend your days at the farmhouse. In the sun or under the umbrellas, in the cool of the morning or in the breeze of the summer evenings. For your dinners with your friends there is also a barbecue and an oven with a typical wood-burning stove. Parking is available within the property.

The farmhouse, in our opinion, is perfect for two couples as it is divided into two independent flats that have been designed to guarantee privacy even during a holiday with friends.
The furnishings are simple and comfortable, with some valuable pieces of local antiques, a family inheritance that Francesca, the owner, has carefully restored with respect for tradition.

Reviews

F. Alfred (Deutschland) - settembre 2020

Sehr ruhig, schön angelegt, freundlich und sehr erholsam

Selbstverpflegung, ein Haus für uns alleine mit eigenem privaten Pool. Die Hausleute waren sehr nett, haben aber nicht dort gelebt. Verständigung nur italienisch, oder über die Tochter in Englisch. Sehr ruhige Lage, sehr erholsam. Die Strecke zum Haus führt über einen 2 km langen Schotterweg.

Delicious!

We were welcomed by Francesca, the daughter of the owners. A very kind woman. Lovely to be welcomed after a long drive! The cottages were super clean. Everything you need is there. The house is divided into two separate 'apartments' which are rented out simultaneously to the same tenants (i.e. two kitchens and two bathrooms only for their own use). Good to know if you have small children, for example, because the two 'apartments' are not interconnected. The pool is top notch: large and very well maintained. The owners come to their adjoining vegetable garden every day, but that doesn't bother me at all. They are very discreet and very friendly people. They gave us daily fresh vegetables from their garden and some home brewed bottles of wine! The cottage is wonderfully quiet. Some houses in the area form the hamlet of Caldesi. So, a lot of privacy. The house is located on a pebble track about two km away from the main track. Road is not steep and easily driveable, even with an ordinary family car. Nearby (15 minutes by car) is a beautiful village (Castiglion Fiorentino) where we ate delicious pizza. Other beautiful villages 30 minutes away. 

If you like peace, privacy, clean cottage and lovely pool, don't hesitate and book!

Simply paradise on Earth!

This summer vacation was the fifth time we have visited this wonderful place in Tuscany. The Buoncompagni family have created a fantastic summerhouse with plenty of coziness and Tuscan atmosphere, and everything is so well kept, from the house, to the swimming pool and the beautiful wine yards and kitchen garden. Every time we have been visiting this place we have been so well greeted and it feels like visiting good old friends! Fresh vegetables from the garden is offered every day and we have even been so lucky to be invited for dinner with the family – enjoying a fantastic local Tuscan Wild boar stew and the local wine from the property - all prepared by this wonderful host family. The local area offers beautiful nature and we have spent many hours on foot and biking in and around the local hills. It is simply a small piece of paradise on Earth – and we can safely and warmly recommend it for a fantastic vacation!
 Simone S. (Germany) - luglio 2018 Uns hat der Aufenthalt in Casa Caldesi super gut gefallen. Die Vermieter haben uns fast täglich mit frischem Obst oder Gemüse (aus eigenem Anbau) überrascht. Wir sind sogar einmal von Ihnen bekocht worden. Desweiteren haben wir die Ruhe und die Atmosphäre genossen - nur Naturgeräusche (Hühner gackern, der Wind in den Bäumen, Vögel zwitschern und mal einen Hund bellen). Alles super!!!!
 Jean Rene (France) - giugno 2018 maison au calme, à l'écart. Piscine impeccable. Il manque un vrai salon, surtout pour les jours de mauvais temps. Propriétaires sympathiques.

 Marian (Holland) - luglio 2016 Heerlijk rustig, veel privacy, landelijk, prima zwembad, alles veilig voor kleine kinderen, door hekjes.
 Mariola (Poland) - giugno 2016 Okolica piekna, domek bardzo ladny dobrze wyposazony. Basen, parasole, lezaki, niczego nie brakowalo.
 D. (USA) - maggio 2016 We had a wonderful time at Casa Caldesi. Some friends and I were on a multiple country vacation, and had been go go go for over a week. The Casa was the perfect place to relax and just enjoy our surroundings. The home was very comfortable and the owners were so friendly and helpful. Each day we were surprised with homemade treats and fresh produce from their garden. Such a great treat. It was a nice break to be able to make dinner instead of eating out all of the time. Although we were a bit outside of town, we still close to beautiful historic towns and amazing wineries. After a 4 week long vacation, our time at Casa Caldesi was one of our favorite parts.
Achim Joerger (Deutschland) - settembre 2015 The owner of the house are unbelievable friendly, helpful and warm-hearted people. They gave us nearly every day something out of their garden (tomatos, grap, potato...) and help us when every hint was needed. Also the daughter (Francesca) is unbelievable friendly and helpful. She gave us together with her parents a lot of hints what to do or to visit. In addition some practical hints for traveling via train and others are beneficial for us. We feel like "part of the family" and we only can recommend this location without any restriction. Especially Francesca gave us the feeling that she stands by for question 24 hours per day. Her hints for markets, flea markets, restaurants, shopping centers, parking rooms in Arezzo etc. are valuable. This family is unbelievable, unforgettable experience for us (we stay there togehter with the complete family 2 sons in the age of 15 and 18 and they also very very well. The location is very nice due to the fact that it is located in a very nice area with a magnificant view to the landscape. It is in the middle of a very small location with a couple of houses around, very silent in the evening and very close to bigger towns and locations. A very good central point to visit Tuscany but also able to enjoy holiday on the private pool.
J. Paul (HOLLAND) - agosto 2015 great villa! very spacious, well equipped, clean, nice terrace, great views, very relaxing swimming pool. nice owners, bringing fruit and vegetables and cleaning the pool.
Nathalie Jacobs (Belgium) - luglio 2015 Nous avons été accueilli très bien par les propriétaires très serviables, la maison était propre et très bien entretenue, la piscine également endroit paisible mais la nuit nous avons été réveillé de 2 à 4 heures du matin par des aboiement de chiens des voisins qui étaient enferme dans une cage. C ettait très désagréable A savoir si vous chercher du repos ce n'est pas le bon endroit .
Bakhuis Marjolijn (The Netherlands) - giugno 2015 We had a lovely time, a nice house in a big plot with vegatables, fruit and a very kind couple attending. We were spoiled with fruit, cakes, wine etc. In the village you can find everything you need, Cortona, Arezzo and Sienna nearby. Umbrië, lago trasimeno and surroundings in acceptable distance. Car needed to go to shops for daily shopping.
J. Veronica (SVIZZERA) - luglio 2014 We (2 adults, 2 kids < 3y) have just left after 8 nights at Casa Caldesi, having thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Although initially hard to find, once there we were greeted by our host and we were made most welcome. Our apartment was beautifully decorated, clean and very spacious for the 4 of us. Nice rooms with great beds and typical tuscany furniture. We enjoyed having a "nonna & nonno" as well as a dog and chickens around, and being in an working agricultural grove (olive, fruits, vegetables, wine) added to the attraction for both adults and kids. Despite our lack of Italian and the minimal English/French/Spanish of the "nonna & nonno" we enjoyed fresh eggs, fruits & vegetables nearly every day and besides the clean and wide pool - it all added to the fun of our holiday. We can recommend this place to anyone happy to look after themselves in quiet and beautiful surroundings but somewhat off the beaten track and city (dis-)comforts. Thanks to our gracious hosts - we are looking forward to visit Casa Caldesi again.
