The poetry of Chianti
The beauty of the valley is something that enchants.
The rows of vines, now yellowed, give way to the lush green of olive trees full of their own ripe fruit ready to be harvested.
As soon as you enter the gate, Mariateresa welcomes you, and she does so with the smile and spontaneity typical of her land.
The terratetto is perfect: welcoming, familiar, furnished with floral fabrics, copper utensils on the walls, wrought iron bed, terracotta flooring, writing desk, flip-flop and crystal.
A few kilometers from Florence and an hour from Pisa, Lucca and Siena.
Four full days full of cultural experiences, culinary and perfumes.
We must come back.
Perfect place in an incredibly beautiful environment
We stayed at Agriturismo I Casalini for 3 years, and we keep coming back. There is no better place in Tuscany to find inner peace, to get away from everyday problems and stress. An outdoor breakfast with the view, words can not describe – it makes you feel like coming home and wondering why you would like to live anywhere else in the world. Maria Teresa welcomes you as an old family friend and offers perfect accommodation. All apartments are large and comfortable, well equipped, clean, comfortable. There is a huge garden (do not miss the show of fireflies in May!), Hectares of olive groves, a swimming pool. . . what else do you need for an unforgettable holiday? The moment we leave, we count the days when we can come back again!
Among my favorites
I have been living in Casalini many times since 1995 with various groups of friends, and I am always drawn back. The gardens are beautiful (all times of the year), the location of breathtaking beauty, the apartments clean and comfortable, and the Pagnini family is warm, welcoming, intelligent and generous with their hospitality and humor. I can not recommend it well enough.

A piece of paradise
This was wonderful. From start to finish our hostess Maria Teresa, owner of this beautiful winery and accommodation, has just done everything to welcome us and help us. Its fifteenth century houses we have stayed in are magnificent, with our private garden overlooking the vineyard.
When our car broke down, he arranged a mechanic for us the first thing the next morning. Nothing was a problem. We also renewed our vows in the local church during our stay. Wonderful friendly and warm local people.
The location is ideal being only 15 km from Florence and a short drive from other wonderful places like Siena, Vinci etc. We will definitely be returning and honestly we felt like we were leaving the family in this place. Thanks for making us xxx
We keep coming back
We have visited Casalini for over twenty years. There are many reasons to revisit: excellent location to visit the area, near bus route to Florence; we stayed in 3 of the 4 “gites” everyone is well equipped, clean and easy to live, even though we spent most of our time outside enjoying the wonderful view of the Tuscan landscape at its best; the pool for a dip in the early hours of the morning or for relaxation after a day of tourism is a real bonus; but above all the friendliness, charm, hospitality and warmth of the owners was an important reason for our return visits. We have advised Caslini for many of our friends and relatives in the last 20 years, without exception they found, as we did, that I Casalini has a magic, which can not be fully explained in a few words. We will return to Casalini soon and present the delights of Tuscany for friends from America and our new grandchild.
The location is perfect for visiting Tuscany especially the Chianti region
We have spent many holidays at I Casalini and I intend to come back again this year. It is ideally situated among vineyards and olive trees overlooking the wonderful hills of the Chianti region and at 1.5km 12 km from Florence. The house is perfectly clean, comfortable and well equipped. I highly recommend going, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it like we did.
A good retreat in the Florentine countryside
we stayed with the family 4 days in this beautiful place. It is very close to Florence and allows the daily visit to the city, but at the same time invites you to go towards the Chianti area, Siena is reachable in a short time and so other destinations not to be missed. The price is adequate, not cheap nor expensive. Praying on the knees the owner I could bring my puppy (a German shepherd of 3 years), normally do not accept dogs, fortunately in the period we were few and Cico behaved well. She was a little surprised but then she accepted it willingly, I did everything possible so as not to cause any disturbance and the lady was very kind and understanding. The villa is lovely, overlooking the Chianti and very well kept garden, the rooms are a bit spartan and old-fashioned but nothing is missing. To make me digest the cost of the LPG for heating, which I found high as a good Genoese, gave me a bottle of their excellent oil. By making a subsequent check the rate was fair, the house was very large. There are all the amenities, in summer the swimming pool works and the peace and tranquility do the rest. See you later.
