Welcome to Casale Santa Maria Nuova
The perfect location for visiting Umbria and Tuscany
A countryhouse with 3 self-catering apartments immersed in a 600 hectares ancient estate at the border between Tuscany and Umbria.
Casale Santa Maria Nuova is situated on a hill and is surrounded by a 3500 sq. mt. garden. In the summer it is very pleasant to eat or rest in the shaded areas under the green and luxuriant trees or sunbathe at the beautiful pool.
Enjoy the stunning views in a unique place where the sun rises in Umbria and sets in Tuscany!
If you are looking for relaxation, comfort, privacy, art and culture, this is the place.
You can rent the entire villa and be the sole guests or stay at the aparment that better suits your needs. One large apartment on the first floor and two smaller ones on the ground floor.
The villa consists of three independent apartments.
The Three-Room apartment with two bedrooms and the Four-Room Apartment with 2/3 bedrooms are located on the ground floor. Access to the building's first floor with an independent entrance is through an external stairway which leads to the Large Apartment with 5 bedrooms.
The pool is 5x15mts and is just a few meters from the villa. The pool area has a terrace with gazebos, parasols and sun loungers and is surrounded by a beautiful gravel garden with native plants and flowers.
With its enviable position overlooking Umbria on one side and Tuscany on the other, allows you to relax after a day visiting the surroundings.
The three apartments have been recently refurbished: the functionality and the rationality of a minimalistic style make for a welcoming atmosphere and a pleasant stay. The bedrooms are all equipped with a flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, hairdryer and ceiling fan. Outdoor tables, chairs and parasols for al fresco dinners.
All rooms of the aparments are equipped with heating units.
Casale Santa Maria Nuova is located at the border of Tuscany and Umbria and is 4 km from Chiusi, 10 km from Città della Pieve, and 20 km from Castiglione del Lago. It is a strategic location for visiting some of the most famous cities in this area such as, Assisi, Siena, Perugia, Florence and Rome. These cities are all within 1 ½ hrs of travel from our location and can easily reached by car or train. The Chiusi-Chianciano Terme railway station is only 10 kms from Casale Santa Maria Nuova. You have many possibilities and choices for excursions in the area, which is full of known and little known small towns (Città della Pieve, Chiusi, Castiglione del Lago, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, and Cetona to name a few) These small towns are known for their rich artistic, architectural, naturalisitic and enogastronomic heritage.
Casale Santa Maria Nuova is situated within the ancient Le Coste estate on 600 acres of woodland, olive groves, and cultivated land. It once belonged to the Piccioni Marquis who created Italy’s first game reserve. The farm buildings scattered around the property were once used by farm workers. The cultivation of tobacco was very intensive here and the drying process was carried out in buildings which have now been restored and converted into dwellings. The bricks used to build the farm buildings were made in the estate’s furnaces which are currently being restored. This process gave the estate a productive autonomy which was typical of those times and far removed from modern globalizing trends.
Wellness and Sports
If you are the sporty type, you can swim, play tennis, bike, play volleyball or, more simply, walk within the estate in which Casale Santa Maria Nuova is situated. The Lamborghini 9-hotel Golf Club is only a few kilometers away. Horse riding and water sports such as sailing, water- skiing and kayaking can be found at the nearby Trasimeno Lake. For the more enthusiastic bikers, we suggest the 60 kilometer Bonifica bike path which runs along two different lakes and links Chiusi to Arezzo. The thermal spa at San Casciano dei Bagni is also just a few kilometers away – a place where you can indulge in wellness treatments such as massages, Jacuzzis and more. Last but not least, you can ski at nearby Monte Amiata in the winter.
