La Casetta di Castell'Anselmo is a traditional, although entirely refurbished, peaceful and charming Tuscan farm house with pool located in the centre of a farm, whose land is partially cultivated and partially given over to Mediterranean scrub. Located on a hill-top just outside the village of Castell'Anselmo, the house and the well tended garden, enjoy beautiful views extending from Pisa and the Apuane alps to the hills surrounding Leghorn and the sea beyond. The carefully furnished and fully accessorized villa features Wi-Fi internet connection, there's a large-fully equipped kitchen, the living area with fire place and many French windows... overlooking the garden, is comfortable and elegantly furnished. Air conditioning can be provided in the bedrooms. In the garden, a panoramic 16x4 metre swimming pool offers pleasant refreshment in the hotter months of the year. The property is child-friendly and the pool area is fenced. La Casetta's proximity to numerous places of natural and cultural interest as well as sporting facilities make it the ideal place for a holiday. Numerous golf courses, can be easily reached. Guests can either chose to relax within the property or enjoy daily trips to Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Volterra, Cinque Terre as well as wine tours in the best wineries around Bolgheri such as San Guido, Ornellaia, Argentiera and so on, where the super Tuscan wines are produced.
Upon request (and not included in the rental price) I can provide a cook service. Larger groups of up to 12-14 persons can ask for two more bedrooms located into the recently refurbished annexe, each one featuring air conditioning and private bathroom.
La Casetta di Castell'Anselmo is especially recommended for a spring holiday in Tuscany, as this is the most beautiful period of the year.Read more

La casetta is a beautifully maintained home with modern amenities in the Tuscan countryside. it is surrounded by breathtaking views of rolling hills ( the pictures on the website do not do justice :)). It is a true paradise. It was a perfect way to combine relaxation with day trips to Pisa, Lucca, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa, wineries in Bogheri, Populonia, and many more. It was a perfect Italy trip for my husband's birthday with family and friends. Lastly, the owner, Federica was amazing. She was helpful and accommodating in every way. Her extensive knowledge of the area guided us to most amazing places including restaurants and wineries. We will definitely be back!!
Beautiful family owned Tuscan Villa. 15 minutes from Pisa Int'l airport.
Luxury appointments/amenities throughout home overlooking beautiful Tuscan rolling hills. Excellent home base for day trips to Florence, Rome, wineries etc.
Owner, Federica, is truly an ambassador for all things great in Italia!
Her food, culture, wine and general information was the icing on the cake for our family's first visit to Italy.
I highly recommend a stay in this villa!! Read more
Dear Dee, it was a real pleasure to have you and your family here and to share my favorite locations around Italy with you and the rest of the party.
I will not forget your happy face while talking about good food.
If you decide to come back to Italy, I will be happy to recommend again my preferred place all over...

Knowing the area, I wanted a relaxing comfortable country villa to enjoy the surroundings, both rural and historic and La Casetta turned out to be the perfect place. The countryside is beautiful, the sea is just a few minutes away and the cities of Pisa, Lucca are great to visit for just day trips. But most of all we enjoyed staying at the villa, taking walks, hanging out in the pool and eating our hearts out with all the fabulous local food. Best of all are the very lovely owners who we met and were very helpful in everything and anything we asked for and for the many great ideas they gave us to make our stay a memorable one.
Thanks again!!! Read more

Many thanks to you ;-)

If you are looking for a true paradise, on a beautiful Tuscan hill, far from chaos, and yet close to lovely beaches and historical towns such as Pisa, Lucca and the gorgeous Populonia with its stunning caslte built in the XV century... you found the right place!
this lovely home is the perfect place to experience Tuscany at its best: the Tuscan peaceful countryside, great shores, breathtaking history, amazing food. My favorite thing? hum hum, hard to say, maybe the pool on top of the hill? with its unbelievable view? My 2 childran are still sooo upset that we letf. I don't think they forgave mommy and daddy, yet.
Oh well, I guess we'll have to be back next year : )
As soon as you'll be back to Italy we will have to organize another week-end with friends there!
Natura, fun, relax, good food.....

Relaxing holidays in the middle of Tuscany
Left on 09/01/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Strangfeld
We were five adults with six children and a dog and La Casetta was just the perfect choice for our holidays.
The kids where always in and around the good sized and clean pool, whereas five chairs gave us adults the opportunity to relax and tank some sun right next to it.
The big kitchen made it easy to cook for 11 people with enough hands to help and all appliances were in top condition and the fridge big enough to stack food for a week.
The location is also perfect to enjoy every minute the amazing views from the terrace of the house and spot many shooting stars during the nights - and also a great spot to escape for trips to explore the Tuscan sights such as Pisa, Florence and Volterra in no time. The dog beach in Cecina is also only 35min away.
Federica made sure that we had nothing to miss during our stay and was of great help to get there and back without any problems.
Probably the most relaxing holidays we had in a long time - thank you very much again!!!
We can recommend the house to everybody who wants a perfect spot away from everything but close to everything at the same time for absolute relaxation...

The pictures on tripadvisor do not do this Villa justice, it is a classic Tuscan Villa! Great views, very spacious rooms, beautiful swimming pool, outdoor seating for dining alfresco, and very private. The location is great if your staying in the area and want to lounge around the pool and rest. We used the Villa, the pool, the outdoor grill, everything.
What I liked best was the amazing view and the space we had for 9 people. We travelled with 3 couples, 1 single adult and 2 teenage boys and everyone had their own room and bathroom.
What we liked least was the fact that the town it is close too is not very happening, our teenagers were quite bored.
We spent a lot of time driving because we wanted to see all of Tuscany, some towns are as close as 45 minutes away, some were 2-3 hours away.
The owners and groundskeepers are wonderful to work with, they were alwasy available and accomadating.
I would recomend this Villa to anyone wanting a classic, laid back Tuscan experience.
We found an amazing cooking class 45 minutes away in Lastra a Signa at the Villa Pandolfini. There is a great outlet Mall an hour or so away. Your 20 minutes from Livorno & Pisa, 30 minutes from Lucca, 2 hours from Modino, 2 hours from Siena, less than 2 hours from Florence, and 3 1/2 hours from Rome. I don't know of anywhere in Tuscany you could stay that you wouldn't have to drive since it is so spread out with many great villages to visit.
Thank you Maria and Federika! Read more
Dear Kathrine, many thanks to you for the lovely review!
I am really happy when I realize that our guests are happy with the house and the garden as I dedicated a lot of time in assembling the furnishings and most of all in creating the garden, which is my real passion!
I feel guilty as I am no longer dedicating a lot of time to the place and I would like to stay there more often insted of spending my time in Rome......but I will!
Many thanks again and ciao,
A Must Visit

Ideally located, La Casetta is the embodiment of the classic tuscan villa; rustic, neatly tucked away in the hills, surrounded by landscaped vineyards, wild berry scrubs and fig trees. Spent our days taking long walks or just lounging by the pool. The view of the sunset still evokes pleasant memories. And hey, as for the food..what can i say, we ate everything ! A must visit.

We stayed in this fantastic villa which was perfect, charming and done with such taste. The location was perfect, the facilities wonderful, the surroundings varied and lovely and everything could not have been more perfect. Wonderful food in the area, relaxing and at the same time so much to discover - the perfect combination for children and adults! Will do again and again!
