Casole d'Elsa Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Not far from Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Chianti and Volterra.
Colloritto is an old farmhouse in a hill top position in the wonderful countryside west of Siena. It lies 12 Km far from Casole d’Elsa and Radicondoli, both typical medieval villages still retaining their charm and original character. Colloritto is a perfect jump off point to explore the enchanting Tuscany, including the Maremma seashore. City of art such as Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Monteriggioni, Massa Marittima are easily accessible on good roads. Colloritto was built over an Etruscan site.

The famous wine region “Chianti” is only 25 km away. Each of the two apartments has its own patio and garden, from which our guests can enjoy the panoramic views and peace.
A small pool is available.
Beside this, there are several rivers in the area (Merse, Pavone, farma and Cecina) with clean waters and good streams. The free and open thermal baths are in Petriolo, 30 km from Colloritto, where hot water flows in the river Farma, offering a hot-cold swimming option.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed at the Olmi House at Colloritto in July 2014. The house is close to Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra and lots of little picture-postcard hill-top villages and small towns. It is a beautiful house and grounds with the most lovely views of gorgeous countryside. The garden and views are perfect for outdoor dining (and sun-bathing), and the house is very clean and nicely decorated with all the amenities you need, including the pool-table.
The owners are extremely friendly, helpful and kind. Gabriele met us at Siena station, took us to the car-hire agency, and led us to the nearest supermarket; they supplied us with local wine and olive oil, and Patrizia brought our washing in when it rained. They even let us watch the world cup final on their big TV! We loved Tuscany, the history, the countryside, the food, but we especially enjoyed and appreciated their hospitality.
We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to go back to Colloritto.
Gabriele, the owner, works also with the Insurance company Allianz as Advisor, both from home and from Siena office.
This was the house where my parents since 1971 came every sunday to have lunch and keep a small garden
We loved the wiew and the position. From the house you can get directly in the woods and have fun with walks birdwatching fishing etc
