Former Monastery in the countryside near Castelmuzio

ACCOMMODATIONS FOR UP TO 30 GUESTS

Life in rural Tuscany reveals centuries of time left unchanged and people who have always lived in tune with nature and the rhythm of life. Built in 1891, Le Casine di Castello has been lovingly restored with attention to details and care for maintaining its original charm. From the trompe l’oeil paintings on the walls and ceilings to the Tuscan antique furnishings, you will step back in time to a place of comfort and tranquility.

Le Casine di Castello is centrally located in the tiny village of Castelmuzio, completely off the tourist track and only a short drive away from Pienza and Tuscany’s most photographed region, the Val d’Orcia.

This spacious apartment spans three levels. The entry is on street level, where you will enter into a large entrance hall and staircase decorated with antique Tuscan artifacts. Halfway upstairs is a half bath with toilet and shower.

On the second level there are two beautiful bedrooms, a living room with a comfortable sofa bed, a useful hallway closet, a dining room with an open fireplace, and a spacious, luxurious, bathroom with hairdryer, bidet, and large shower.

The bedrooms can be arranged with either an Italian “matrimonial” bed (queen-sized bed) or two twin beds. Every bed has a high-quality orthopedic mattress, clothed with the finest of luxury linens and bedspreads, and extra pillows.

The kitchen has everything you need to prepare delicious meals. The kitchen includes a stovetop, toaster, coffee makers, microwave, refrigerator with freezer, and dishwasher. You will find a full complement of dinnerware, flatware, water and wine glasses, wine decanter, cutlery, utensils, and pots and pans. Candles are provided for romantic meals. Everything you need is here!

The double exposure of Il Cielo provides vistas of both the surrounding countryside or quaint views of the village. For your comfort, the windows have screens to keep the mosquitoes outside while letting the fresh Tuscan breeze inside. Halfway to the top floor is a laundry room with washing machine, ironing board, laundry sink, and clothes drying rack. Clothes detergent is provided for your convenience. Use of the washing machine is included within the rental charge.

The top of the house opens up to a private terrace with table and chairs and grill. From this vantage point you can enjoy the view of the bell tower and medieval center of the village as you sip your wine and relax in total peace. Your perch on top of the world allows you to see beyond the village buildings out to the Val d’Orcia countryside.

For groups of six, both Il Cielo and Il Nido may be rented. At street level there is an internal adjoining door, that allows both apartments to be combined to make one very large Tuscan town house.

Il Cielo is provided with Wi-Fi, Flat Screen Satellite Tv including international channels, and an MP3 Docking Station for your devices with sound files.
