A welcoming hostess provides lots of helpful information about the locality. The accommodation itself is very clean and was great for our party of six. The pool was particularly welcome in the summer heat (we stayed in early July) and has fine views across the countryside. The local town of Casole d’Elsa has a number of good restaurants and is a 20 - 30 minute walk away, some of the walk being uphill. There is a good selection of shops (e.g. butcher, grocer etc.) and a supermarket for your food and provisions. We ate out in the town for three evenings and would recommend Dal Brigante, which has a terrace with lovely views.
There are lots of other towns and villages to explore comfortably within an hour’s drive, plus of course Siena itself which is just over an hour away.
We had a lovely stay at Villa Centopine. The farmhouse is well equipped - a good sized kitchen to work in and good sized rooms. The pool was plenty warm enough even in early June. Gina brought lovely treats and also a very generous welcome basket. It is quite isolated which we liked. We visited San Gimignano and Florence and we also did some good hikes locally and in the Geothermic park nearby. The local restaurant in Montecastelli is very good. Definitely recommend.
