Tuscany at it's best!

4 of 5
The house was in a fantastic location and clean and tidy on arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the villagers were friendly and helpful. You will need to be fit to enjoy the location to the full as it is a steep climb to the property but don't let this put you off as the views are spectacular.

Perfect Tuscan getaway

5 of 5
We had the most perfect stay in Casole D'Elsa. The views are stunning. The apartment had everything we needed and more. It's worth the slightly bumpy track to get there!! It was a great location to explore Tuscany - Siena/San Gimignano/Chianti. Sante was really helpful and hospitable. There are even some friendly cats! I couldn't recommend this place enough and would love to go back! Grazie!!! Caroline & Erika September 2015
