You will find yourself steeped in history at this imposing 14th Century manor house once owned by the influential Serristori family. The magnificent architecture will transport you back in time, and details such as the terracotta floors, ornate ceilings, the elegant loggia and an Italian garden of rare beauty all contribute to the house's grandeur. Once a privileged location for artists and philosophers, today Antica Taverna Casagrande is accessible to us all, and at reasonable prices.

Stay in town, but yet in the countryside - the best of both worlds!

It is rare to find a place that manages to combine the rural with the urban. You enter the house from the street in the charming town of Figline Val d'Arno, and once you pass through the house and into the garden, you could be in the countryside. There is a swimming pool, sauna and a gymnasium, and a beauty clinic in one of the wings of the manor. Courses in drawing, painting and pottery are regularly held here, as are wine tours. Parking is available on site and since it is only 700 metres to the train station from here, you can easily arrive by train. You can also take a train from here to Florence and Arezzo for day trips. The town has many attractive squares, quaint streets, shops and restaurants.

Swim inside or outside!

You have the choice here to swim inside in the heated indoor pool (Solar panels) which is open between May and September, or when the weather is good you might prefer to swim in the outdoor pool, which is set in the hills opposite the hotel (about 80 metres away, you have to cross a small road). The outdoor pool is also open to non-residents. You have free access to this as a resident but you must pay a fee for the use of sunbeds and pool towels, whilst non residents must pay in full for the use of the pool. So regardless of the weather, you can enjoy swimming here all year round.

The SPA is currently closed for the time being.

Stroll in the ornamental garden

The beautifully designed ornamental gardens invite you to take a stroll and find a quiet moment in one if it's many manicured corners. If you want more fun and games you can take a walk to the outdoor swimming pool which is surrounded by green fields and also has a playground. Here you will also find a small bar serving light meals if you get hungry after a swim.

Enjoy good food and the warm atmosphere

With regards to the restaurant, we should first and foremost emphasize the extraordinary atmosphere. It is housed in the old gun room where body armour and antique weapons adorn the walls. Secondly, wine is produced on the farm, and the comprehensive and fine wine list available should also be mentioned. Thirdly we recommend the soups (especially the Farro e Fagioli), and game (wonderful deer with juniper berry sauce), and wonderful pasta dishes. Lastly we must not forget the homemade desserts which will make anyone forget about their diet! The best part is that you can enjoy fine dining here at a reasonable price. Several of the farm's wines and their unique olive oil can also be purchased here - and again at quite reasonable prices, and it is even possible to have it sent to your home country. Please note that the restaurant is closed on Mondays.

Book your elegant room or apartment

The villa has 11 large apartments and 60 rooms that are very comfortable, spacious and furnished with great taste and elegance. They are scattered around the main building and in various annexes in a maze of beautiful old buildings.

An adventure

We spend 6 days of our honeymoon here at Villa Casagrande in one of the apartments. It was nice to able to switch between eating at the hotel, going out for dinner or cook food ourselves. The place was in itself an adventure from the beginning! A lot of charm and soul, better than expected. Figline Valdarno is a nice town, with rich opportunity for travelling and exploring other parts of Tuscany! :)

A travel back in time

Villa Casagrande is absolutely to be recommended. Exciting to walk around and experience the whole place, inside as well as outside. We stayed in an apartment with a garden in the front. One bad thing was that we had to pay final cleaning, 16 euro. pr person - but on the other site it seemed quite fair because of the high standard. The restaurant has some dishes and what we had was fine and the prices was the same as in city. The house wine can also be recommended - the regular Chianti Classico DOCG at the price of 11 euro is just fine.

Lovely holiday

Fantastic place to be on holiday, the staff is very kind and accommodating, the restaurant is also fantastic, the food is delicious and the staff does everything they can to satisfy the costumer.

There's also a wine cellar, where you can taste the house wine.

The indoor pool is not very well maintained, and the person maintaining it, turned of the light 3 minutes before closing time, even though our small children were still in the pool, which could have been extremely dangerous.
