RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. An imposing manor house and two outbuildings, an old tobacco drying kiln and the old oven where all the sharcropper families once went to bake their bread, constitute Le Caselle, a property that recent renovations (the last one in 2014) have transformed from farmhouse to dream house. In the elegant rooms are many traditional elements - terracotta, stone, rustic fireplace, vaulted ceilings - but just as many modern ones such as the kitchen with central island and professional electrical appliances. Along one entire side of the garden, through a row of trees, you can see the fields that border on the park allowing guests to immerse themselves in the tranquility of a 50-hectare estate of vineyards, tobacco fields, olive groves, livestock, fields of wheat and sunflowers, producing typical top-quality gastronomical products. Le Caselle is a great starting point towards the main towns of Tuscany and Umbria, like Siena, Arezzo and Perugia, and for making day trips to Cortona, Montepulciano and other delightful little towns in the area.

The property consists of three units: the main house and two outbuildings.
THE MAIN HOUSE has two floors. On the ground floor, the living area is divided into two living rooms, one with dining area, fireplace and toilet, and a professional kitchen with island. The sleeping area on this floor consists of a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and a twin bedroom with joinable beds with ensuite bathroom with half-tub. From the main entrance a sandstone staircase leads up to the first floor with two double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom with shower, a double bedroom with divisible bed and ensuite bathroom with shower, one independent suite made up of a lounge room with double bed on the mezzanine, one double bedroom and one bathroom with shower. On the left side of the staircase there is a twin bedroom with joinable beds with bathroom with shower. On a slightly raised floor are a twin bedroom and a double bedroom, reached by a stone staircase and by a wooden staircase, which use two of the bathrooms with shower on the lower floor.
ANNEX ONE: just a few metres from the main house, it has two floors and is composed of a living room with dining area, kitchen with wood stove, double bedroom with adjacent bathroom with shower and, upstairs, a double bedroom with adjacent bathroom with shower.
APPENDIX TWO: about 20 metres from the main house, it has two floors and consists of an open-plan area with kitchen, lounge and dining area, a toilet and, upstairs, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower.
5000 sq m of parkland surround the house. The flat expanse of lawn, enclosed by a high hedge and full of tall trees like cypresses, pines and firs, interspersed with well-kept flower beds that definine different areas of the garden and are planted with hydrangeas, geraniums, roses and herbs. With the wood oven and built-in barbecue guests can prepare meals for family or friends in the shade of the pergola set between the main house and one of the two annexes, furnished with tables and chairs, and close to the pool. Just past the iron gate is the gravel car park with covered and open-air parking spaces. Pretty lanterns are set around the pool and the parking area, to ensure adequate lighting at night.
On the same level of the house and just 15 m from it, the pool is easily accessible from both the main house and the annexes, due to the flat terrain and total absence of steps. It measures 7 x 15 m with a constant depth of 1.40 m. It is lined with ceramic tiles, access to the water is via ladder or Roman steps and it has chlorine purification. The solarium area, paved in terracotta next to the pool and covered in lawn in the remaining areas, is equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs, tables and a cold-water shower as well as a gazebo with sofas and armchairs which constitutes a comfortable outdoor seating area. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday of October.
