Hi Lori, Just to say thank you for all your help, We've had a lovely holiday in Tuscany at Casale Vetriana and your directions and instructions were most helpful and useful. Look forward to having a look at what you have on offer for next year! Once again a big thank you. Kind regards

I think the property was divine!! Our cook/housekeeper, Rosalda was a sweetheart. The whole experience was very relaxing and gorgeous grounds. Many thanks.

About this Villa

Ideally situated in a small tranquil valley below Mount Cetona on one side and overlooking the Val d'Orcia on the other, Casale Vetriana is located near the medieval town of Sarteano in the province of Siena. Nearby are lovely old Tuscan towns such as San Casciano dei Bagni (with its famous spa Bagno Vignoni), Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino.

30 acres of land surround the house, much of which are wooded with paths. The rest are tended fields, including a nearby vegetable garden.

All carefully chosen furnishings reflect the taste of one of the owners who has designed the interiors of many houses and apartments in Positano, as well as stage and opera productions for Franco Zeffirelli.
