Cozy cottage rests within garden of architect-restored farmhouse. LA CASINA di Malabiccia is proud to offer year-round hospitality in a unique location amidst the rolling hills of Tuscany. Italian materials and quirky details create an unforgettable charm and comfort. Guests enjoy ample garden space, a fully equipped kitchen and daytrips to Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Arezzo, Siena, Cortona and more.

The space
From this romantic abode just off the beaten track you will enjoy the silence of the countryside and immerse fully in this rich natural environment that is the source of world-famous cuisine and architecture. A one room cottage featuring handmade terra cotta tiles as floor and roof. Charming cypress window frames, brick archways and a large glass door complete the picture. We pride ourselves on a traditional old-fashioned European hospitality. Our linens are high quality, 100% cotton, and ironed by hand. Dishes are selected for practicality and character. Furnishings are simple with a mix of contemporary and antiques. Sharp knives, good pots and pans, and a complete dining set complete this independent residence.

As was recently highlighted in the New York Times, we are just 15 minutes North of Pienza, a hilltop town redesigned in 1400 by Pope Pius as a retreat from Rome and the ideal Renaissance town. It is a Unesco World Heritage sight and the origin of sheeps-milk cheese called Pecorino.
The Val D'Orcia is a jewel of Tuscany - offering guests an experience of remote pastoral country living along with incredible architectural, artistic and cultural excursions. Gastronomic marvel of the world, Tuscany is home to the Chianti region and Olive Oil of the area is known for it's region.
You may find a tractor on the way to your tour of a 18th century Monastery!

Guest access

Other things to note
We are located about .5 km from a paved road. The property is a working farm with some comings and goings of staff, so not completely isolated, but quiet for most of the day....and at night.

Kitchen is stocked with salt, pepper and olive oil. But breakfast goods and any other basics, are not provided.

Check-in is from 15,00 - 20,00 (3-8 PM). Please advise us of your arrival time so that we can be sure to be available.

Check-out is at 10,00 AM. Please see the document inside the casina for further instructions.

The Italian law establishes that those who host guests must inform the police of their presence. For this reason, every guest must show a passport or other photo document. This is a condition of the reservation and must be fullfilled in accordance with regional hospitality rules, national Italian law as established in association with AirBandB.com. Careful protection of your personal data is an absolute priority in our home.

Location

Petroio, Toscana, Italy

Petroio is a tiny town in Tuscany. If you are interested to see what a village with very few tourists is like, you will love visiting us.
We are about 1 km down a dirt road and surrounded by olive trees and open fields. You will remember the country fragrance of fresh air forever, and see the stars at night over a dark valley with little lights of villages in the far distance.

A city-savvy American artist who loves life in the countryside. Hosting international travelers at my home in Tuscany is a dream come true. After 19 years in New York City, I am turning my attention to the olive trees and gardens surrounding Podere Malabiccia a property left to me by an old friend. I encourage nature loving guests to visit the area; and strive to welcome all guests a feeling of comfort and care; the ideal base for explorations of nearby cultural marvels.
