Le Cesarine

Near the ancient thermal baths

San Casciano Dei Bagni / Toscana

La Cesarina

Get ready to lose yourself in an enchanting medieval village, surrounded by the stunning natural landscape of rolling hills and ancient springs. Our Cesarino welcomes us to San Casciano dei Bagni, an oasis of calm that is located on the border between the regions of Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria.

Cooking is Francesco’s lifelong passion, and he has been working as a chef for over a decade in some of Rome’s most prestigious restaurants. “Moving out here to the beautiful hills of the Siena province has given my cooking a whole new lease of life, and I love preparing classic Tuscan dishes. I’m so enthusiastic about sharing my culture through typical recipes, especially for events like these which are more informal and enjoyable. I provide a top-quality experience which will be remembered fondly."

Our customers says

"This was one our best experiences in Bologna. Our hosts, Gianni and Lorenza, were a well travelled and interesting couple about similar ages to ourselves. They also spoke perfect English, having lived in Canada for many years. Gianni taught us how to make tortellini from scratch which we ate with our meal. Gianni is a fine and the rest of the meal was excellent. Their place is an apartment in a medieval Palazzo which was well worth seeing on its own. We really enjoyed it."

"Our dinner with Angela was the best experience of our visit to Rome. The food was delicious, and it was delightful to talk with Angela and her Mother about food, life in Rome, work, and the state of the world in general. This experience would have been impossible for us without Le Cesarine."

"We had a wonderfull lunch time with Tania (30 minutes outside from Bologna). She was an excellent host and very charming. We enjoyed her traditional courses (antipasti,strozzapretti con salsiccia, brasato al limone) very much and could highly recommend her. The atmosphere was very relaxed and it was easy to drive to her. We would come again."
