Ancient stone farmhouse with private swimming pool and tennis court. On the border between Tuscany and Umbria, 25 km from Cortona. Suitable for families with children, table tennis, bowls, outdoor games, fishing pond, children's pool available.
If you book a holiday at Casale Aiola you will find yourself immersed in a modern farmhouse and forestry farm, surrounded by greenery and set in the total tranquillity of the hills on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, among age-old woods and picturesque valleys. Casale Aiola is an old stone farmhouse divided into two parts. In one part of the house lives the owner who, with his discreet presence, will be a sure reference point for any need.
The farmhouse is located about 25 km from the beautiful Cortona, in Tuscany and about 15 km from the village of Trestina, in Umbria. You can do your shopping in either Cortona or Trestina, both of which have shops, supermarkets and services.
From here you have easy access to green Umbria, with its small villages nestled in the lush hills and bucolic landscapes of Lake Trasimeno, Perugia is only 60 km away.
Similarly, once you have reached Cortona, the splendid towns and cities of southern Tuscany will open up for you to discover. From Cortona to the farmhouse the road is perhaps a little long, even though it is all paved. But once you are there you will be rewarded with the absolute tranquillity of the place.
In our opinion Casale Aiola is definitely suitable for groups of families with children. The large green space around the house is perfect for the little ones to run and play in the middle of nature. Also available, in front of the house, is a children's swimming pool (size m. 4x8 - depth 0.60 m.), table tennis, table football, children's games, a bowling green andfive-a-side football field.
For adults and children there is a large private swimming pool (size 9x16 m. -depth 1,20 m. completely fenced) with bathroom with shower and a small gazebo with fridge to cool down on hot summer days, a tennis court for the more enthusiastic and a small lake for fishing.
On one side of the house you will find two large pergolas furnished with table, chairs and barbecue, where you can organise family dinners and barbecues “al fresco”.

Great house & beautifull placeWe rented the house for 12 days - 8 adults, 7 children from 1 to 9 years old - The agency did a great job and answered all questions raised - House : great, lots of place, different appartments, allowing a good allocation of the rooms and so a better logistic for the different families - Rooms & beds : Ok - Temperature: we faced a very hot summer, so having difficulties keeping fresh air in the room. House windows being small, it's hard to create a strong aeration during night in period of high temperature, making sometime sleep hard. The place being in the montains, there is quite some air outside the house, which is very appreciable with high temperature - Facilities : swimming pool are very great. The small one is close by the house, very usefull for the children. The large one is very big and great for high number of people. Pool Security for young children is lacking => Need be very carreful. Tennis, babyfoot, ping-pong, ect ++++ (the systems for fitness are too old and can't be used). - Environnement : magic, great place in the middle of the montains. If you want a calm environnement, far from noise and in the middle of the nature, this is the place - Access : Not that easy. You need 45 min to leave the montain fropm 1 side, 20 minutes from the other, so better be organized for the food, drinks, ect. This impose planning and time in case you want to visit toscani and/or umbria - Noise : ok, we had sometime early morning noise, but when asking the owner (family working there) to be carrefull, it got much better
Fantastisk og charmerende stenhus med masser af pladsVi var ni voksne og fire børn i Casale Aiola, og vi havde et skønt ophold. Stedet er perfekt til mange personer, og der mulighed for mange forskellige aktiviteter. Der er virkelig smukt, og Anna (værtinden, som kun taler italiensk) er meget hjælpsom.
Relax e divertimentoIl casale si presenta subito come un luogo incantato, lontano dai rumori cittadini con una cornice di olivi e verde a dismisura. La signora Anna molto gentile ci ha accolti nei suoi appartamenti puliti comodi ed ordinati. Peccato non aver potuto usufruire delle piscine essendo inverno, ma il capanno con ping pong e biliardino é stato molto apprezzato dai ragazzi anche durante la pioggia. Molto belli i borghi raggiungibili con una mezz'ora di auto, San Sepolcro, città di castello e a 40 minuti cortona, bellissimo esempio di medioevo italiano. Unico neo i bagni, funzionali ma un po datati e alcune finestre in legno con chiusura poco idonea che fanno disperdere un po di calore. Soggiorno di 3 notti apprezzatissimo da tutto il gruppo (17 persone)da ripetere in stagione calda.
Herlig avslappende opphold.Etter to flotte uker på Aiola sitter vi i igjen med gode opplevelser, og er veldig fornøyd med oppholdet. Vi var 15 stk som disponerte huset sammen. God plass innvendig og flott uteområde - alt lett tilgjengelig: stor utegrill, fine plasser for bespisning, god plass for lek/spill og moro. Flott bassengområde. Rent og pent over alt. Anbefales.
