A place with a rich history
At beginning of the eighties , a German-Dutch couple moved with their baby to Tuscany
to create a welcoming place for art and nature lovers.
They found Casanuova: a 350 -year old building, once an aristocratic summer residence, later a monastery,
an orphanage, a school, and last but not least a farm leased by the counts Serristori. They carefully restored the inhabited buildings,
designed gardens and terraces and blew life into the abandoned vineyards and olive groves.
Casanuova is a lovely place to stay, especially for guests who also want to feel at home during their holidays.
It is an ecologically sustainable, authentic place for inspiration, relaxation and meeting; a place you love to come back to.
Our love for a sustainable and individually tailored stay
Our house motto is ‘La Bellezza della Semplicità’: the beauty of simplicity. This stands for a holiday without luxury,
yet with just those little things that help you relax in natural surroundings.
At Casanuova we consciously strive to provide you with an unregimented and individual experience.
We have built up this special place with an eye for detail and we work with respect for the environment.
We re-use as many materials as possible, unwanted items often find a second life.
Our guests are like-minded people who can fully enjoy our historical residence, as well as art,
nature and pure and good food. To fully let go of the daily routine we do not have TV in the hotel.
At dinner you can share the table with the other guests, and feel free to help yourself to a drink.
Casanuova is warm and intimate. We wouldn’t want it any other way.
