CASALE ELSA - A BEAUTIFULLY LOCATED PROPERTY IN THE HEART OF TUSCANY

Certaldo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

For 4 +1 persons, garden and pool and a beautiful view

A short drive along a country lane lined with cypresses, leads to the property (500 m dirt road). Casale Elsa dates back to the 19th-century. The original building was just the Tower, built to see the arrival of strangers. Through the years, the structure has been enlarged to its present form. Once a modest farmhouse with barn it has been completely restored in 1992 and converted into seven rustic apartments. Another farmhouse is retained by the owners who are there to enjoy the peace of the countryside on occasional weekends. The property, immersed in the magical atmosphere of the Tuscan hills, is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, fields of sunflowers, cherry trees, walnut trees and woods. On return from a day out, you can relax with a swim in the pool, enjoying the nature and the peace of the estate. The pool is set in middle of a large and well-kept lawn.

Please ask for the link of our website to get more information. Thank you!

The offered apartment can accommodate 4-5 persons: 1 living room with dining area and kitchen (dishwasher), 2 double rooms (which can be converted into a twin), 2 bathrooms and an outdoor seating to enjoy an outdoor meal.

There is an outdoor area to enjoy an outdoor meal. The outside area is directly in front of the apartment. If you prefer eating out, you will find in the immediate vicinity a variety of excellent trattorias and restaurants. The nearest restaurant is 1 km from the house, another is 2 km away. A list of good tips in English can be found in your home.

The bedrooms can be arranged as twin or double room. (Please specify when booking how you prepared the bed disposition want). The apartment is equipped with satellite TV, dishwasher and small wall safe, has a hairdryer in the bathroom, floor or ceiling fans in the bedrooms and fly screens on the windows. There is a laundry room, a barbecue area, the access is provided privately and with automatic entrance gate, the parking lot has a shade roof.

Casale Elsa is a perfect starting point to explore Tuscany: situated in the heart of Chianti, the major attractions of the region can easily be reached. It is only a 15 minutes' drive to the jewel of San Gimignano, and within an hour you can reach both Florence and Siena. Closer are some lesser-known treasures: On the next hill lies the romantic old town of Certaldo, abuzz each July with its medieval pageant, the Mercantia, during the summer months concerts and art exhibitions are hold here. In Certaldo (4 km) you will find all kind of grocery shops, a supermarket, post office, banks, bars and restaurants. In the other direction lie San Vivaldo, a Franciscan monastery with its 13th century chapels, and Montaione, whose pedestrianised old centre is packed with shops and restaurants.

The villa's location only 4 km from the railway station of Certaldo is a good base to visit Florence and Siena even without a car: You can park your car in Certaldo (free parking behind the railway station) and take the train in both directions. During the week, trains to Florence/Siena and back go regularly (approx. every 1.5 or 2 hours). The train ride takes less than an hour. In Florence the train will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station 'Santa Maria Novella' to the Cathedral or the Uffizi. In Siena the railway station is located approx. 3 km from centre, and you have to take a bus to reach the old town on top of the hill. One hour of driving takes you to the sea.

This property is not just 15 minutes from San Gimignano romantic, but also close to Florence and Siena: In one hour, you can easily reach both cities (even with the train). Lesser-known attractions are even closer: Certaldo with all the necessary shops, a supermarket, a post office, bank and several restaurants as well as a very pretty old town is situated on another hill just 4 km away. There, every year takes place in a week of July one of the most beautiful Italian folk and street parties: In the old town lit by torches lead before theater players how life once was in the Middle Ages, and artisans offer their wares. During the summer months there are exhibitions and classical concerts in Certaldo. A piece are farther in the other direction, the little-known San Vivaldo with chapels from the 13th century and Montaione with many shops and restaurants in the pedestrian zone. You to the sea journey time is 1 hour.

Other Activities: Sightseeing, mountain biking, horseback riding (5 km)

Golf: Golf Ugolino 50 km.
