Description from the manager
Midway between Florence and Pisa, if you follow a certain unpaved road through oak woods, olive groves and fields of sunflowers, you will suddenly find yourself on an open hilltop whose glorious views of the countryside surrounding San Miniato will second your decision to holiday at Casa Fiorentina. A farming estate of 250 acres, it is situated on part of the ancient pilgrim's road to Rome, Via Francigena, and provides a sense of being far the rest of the world yet immersed in a territory rich in history and character. Home to hare, wild deer and pheasants, it is both hunting preserve as well as a place to relax, where the opportunity to hike...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
A dream come true!
When you see photos of beautiful Tuscany, Casa Fiorentina (Casa Bini) meets everything you have ever dreamed about Tuscany - the rolling countryside, hundreds of rows of grapevines, olive trees and Italian cypress trees. The sky is so blue it seems surreal. The villas were wonderful and the property managers, Rose and Paul, met every need we had. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and provided more than enough information to tour the entire area. They make their own wine, olive oil and honey. What a relaxing vacation and we'll never forget the area or Rose and Paul.
A fantastic place in every respect.
We spent 10 days at Casa Bini (the other name for Casa Fiorentina), and it was, in every single way, fantastic. The property itself is stunning; we were able to hike all over the beautiful fields and woods; there is a charming, large patio right in front of the building in which we stayed, and a more remote deck down by the pool to read in absolute quiet, except for the many birds singing beautifully. There are big, well-equipped kitchens in which to live the dream of going into the farmers' markets and coming back to cook in a real Tuscan kitchen. The winery on site produces excellent 100% sangiovese reds - and they are making a lovely, crisp white as well. All the bedrooms have bathrooms, and each bedroom - and the villas as a whole - are virtually sound-proof. The owner and property managers are so gracious and helpful, that they made everything on- and off-site a pleasure, rather than a chore...and that is so appreciated while on a much-needed vacation. I could go on and on, but will just say that we hated to leave and will definitely be back!!
An oasis in Tuscany!!
After spending 10 days at Casa Bini, I cannot say enough great things. The views are amazing. The grounds are spectacular. The accommodations were comfortable and homey. Thanks to proprietors Paul and Rose, everything was taken care of. Being able to escape the city and enjoy the quiet and the stars made this a relaxing place. It was very convenient to the train which could easily take you to the major cities, but it was also centrally located to enjoy some of the great Tuscan countryside and quaint villages. Be sure to check out Certaldo and San Miniato.
