Casetta al Leccio received its name from the ancient and beautiful leccio (oak) tree which provides shade in the summer and protection from the wind.  The house has a magnificent view of the Montagnola Senese hills, the Castle, and the city of Siena. The kitchen, dining room and living room with a sofa bed and fireplace are located on the first floor. There is a gorgeous shaded pergola outside providing a wonderful place to dine al fresco, enjoy the view, and relax. On the second floor there is a bedroom with two single beds, a large double bedroom and a bathroom with tub / shower. All the rooms offer a beautiful view of the Elsa River Valley. There is also a small room with a single bed for another guest. The kitchen / dining area are fully equipped.  We encourage our guests to order a basket of vegetables gathered in the Spannocchia garden and to taste our wine, olive oil, honey, and award-winning salumiproducts.  All Organic!

Casetta al Leccio has woodstoves and a fireplace, and is available from April – October.

We brought our two small children for a week and easily could have stayed much longer.  It’s amazingly beautiful and peaceful.  We took walks around the property to see the pigs, we did a scavenger hunt in the secret garden, we played soccer on the lawn overlooking the estate, and we had hot chocolate in front of our fireplace every night.
