very good property for two

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 week stay at La Casetta. Paolo and Tania were very helpful in all respects. The garden and grounds were really well maintained. However we felt the picture on the website showing La Fornace del Borgo all lit up was misleading as the restaurant complex was empty and shut down waiting for a buyer. We thought it was more suited to two people...and finally thank Paolo for his immediate response to any query.

Tuscan Gem

  • 5 of 5

A perfect venue for our family of four . Friendly and helpful welcome from our hosts Paolo and Tania. Accommodation extremely clean and comfortable with all things needed if you were to be self catering. The site had two pools with loungers and tennis courts. The Spa was not open and really not required. Nearby towns had great food options and train station within 30 minutes opened up easy travel to Florence and Sienna but San Gimignano is gorgeous and so close. The Tuscan countryside was stunning. So we would recommend La Casetta for a short or longer holiday. Thanks Paolo and Tania

A perfect location for a trip to Tuscany  

  • 5 of 5

Surrounded by woods, near San Gimignano, La Casetta del Borgo was the perfect location for our recent trip to Tuscany. We enjoyed our Easter holidays at La Casetta with our two daughters and we are all willing to come back soon.

 

The apartment is really wonderful. Comfortable, clean and well decorated and suited. Everything you need is in the house. Located in a beautiful resort with gardens and pools, is the perfect option for a relaxing vacation while giving the opportunity to

visit the most famous cities in Tuscany.

 

For anyone travelling with kids, this is a great option. From La Casetta we drove by amazing landscapes to Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca (where we all enjoyed a lot riding rented bikes by the old town and walls) and we also had the chance to visit the

lovely villages of San Gimigniano, Volterra and Monterrigioni. In the afternoons we came back to La Casetta for relax time, having dinner at “home” or nearby restaurants and trattorias.

 

The owners, Paolo and Tania, are really nice. We want to thank them again for their warm hospitality. They provided us with a lot of useful information for a perfect stay and were always at our disposal for anything we needed.

 

I´d strongly recommend La Casetta.

 

Paolo, Tania, thank you so much!!

Charming Tuscan Casetta

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this very charming Tuscan Casetta for a week in June, it was the middle week in our three week holiday to Italy. We found the quiet peaceful location exactly as the owners described It is set within Borgo La Fornace, a hotel and spa complex with restaurant/ bar, lovely grounds, there are also three swimming pools with numerous loungers, shaded areas for that relaxing day out from touring the wonderful countryside. The location is perfect for day trips to the most beautiful towns and hamlets within the Val D'ELSA. A slow drive takes you to San Gimignano,then onto Volterra, a most magical medieval town, you can do this easily within a few hours then back to relax in the sun drenched garden of the Casetta for your glass of prosecco. For trips further afield take your car to Castlefiorentiono (car park next to train station £3 for the day) for travel to Florence (40mins) or Siena by train for as little as £9 return. Both Tania and Paolo were the most amenable hosts and their property is highly recommended.

My Stay at La Cassetta del Borga

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at la cassetta del borga. The apartment is very nice and comfortable with all the amenities at hand. There were 3 swimming pools to choose from which had a lovely view of the countryside. It was quiet at night and very relaxing as the resort is located in the middle of the countryside. I definitely needed a car to get around. The nearest supermarket was about 10 minutes drive with San Gimingnano about 20 minutes away and Sienna 45 min. I would definitely recommend this apartment as you have the choice of relaxing in the resort at the pool or go sightseeing.
