PRIVATE STRUCTURE. La Casa di Elsa dates back to the beginning of the 20th century when it was nothing more than a humble rural house, with animal stalls on the ground floor and the peasants' rooms immediately above; not far away is the now uninhabited old owner's house. It retains, from its past, the beautiful original stones of the walls, exposed on the outside and, in places, seen under the plaster in the interior walls, as well as a few renovated pieces of furniture such as the two old madie (old kitchen cupboard once used for kneading and storing bread), now converted into useful cupboards. The skilful renovation which was completed in 2013, the excellent finishing touches, the simple and refined furnishing, the lush garden and the panoramic swimming pool make La Casa di Elsa today a home with all comforts ready to meet your highest expectations. The green woods all around and the characteristic medieval town centre of Santa Fiora towering above are just a taste of the wonders that this corner of Tuscany has to offer, starting from Etruscan towns steeped in history, like Montepulciano and San Casciano di Bagni, to the great art cities, not forgetting the culinary excellence and natural beauties, unique in the world. The good road network facilitates short excursions, including trips to the sunny beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea, just an hour’s drive away.


The house has two floors which, due to the sloping ground, have both direct access to the outside. Laurel hedges and a small lawn area border the main entrance on the first floor which leads into a small hallway on to which open two double bedrooms, one with a balcony, and a double bedroom with divisible beds, all facing the view. One of the rooms has an en-suite bathroom with shower while the other two share a second bathroom with shower. From the hallway a wooden staircase leads to the living area which consists of a large open-plan space with toilet, living room, well-equipped kitchen and dining room. From here two large French windows open on to the portico, furnished with table and chairs, where you can enjoy alfresco meals whilst admiring the landscape.


The woods and the olive grove, part of a 4-hectare estate, border the garden surrounding the house with many tall trees typical of this area such as chestnuts, oaks and cypresses, walnut, hazelnut, cherry and apple trees. You can spend your days relaxing in the beautiful garden, arranged in three large terraces, with lawn enlivened by colourful flower pots, full of interesting corners such as the outdoor seating area with sofas and armchairs or the panoramic terrace with the brickwork barbecue where you can cook delicious grills. Not far from the main entrance is a gravel parking area from which two charming paths will take you, in just a few minutes, through the woods, alongside little streams, to the village centre.

Swimming Pool

A few large steps cross the lawn along the 20 m separating the house from the panoramic swimming pool, set in the lowest terrace of the garden and clearly visible from the rooms and patio. Edged in stoneware tiles and lined in PVC, the pool measures 5 x 11 m, with a constant depth of 1,40 m and has salt purification. Roman steps lead into the water and it is equipped with internal and external lighting. The solarium area extends over a level surface, partly paved but mostly lawn, provided with sunbeds, umbrellas and a cold-water shower; all trees create numerous areas of shade, welcome during the hottest days.


Yes small size.

Charming and beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is very pleasant. It is fully equiped and very convinient for a stay of 6 people. The surroundings of the house is what makes it so special. A real paradise. If you are looking for privacy and the great feeling of being a part of nature this is the perfect place for you. The swimming pool is great. it is positioned perfectly and the scenery while swimming is beatifull and most relaxing.

Beautiful and restful

  • 4 of 5

The property really is as beautiful as the pictures indicate. The modern kitdhen is fabulous and the large glass doors are great for feeling part of the holiday even when cooking. The covered outside eating area and gardens are a real bonus. The pool is super (but beware the horseflies in the heat) and is really special when illuminated at night. The bedrooms are all a good size and the beds are comfortable. Santa Fiora is a dleightful hilltop village with a few restaurants, bars and cafe's and a Co-op and is easy to walk to.

The roads In the area are very bendy so it's easier to stay by the pool and relax.

What would make this a 5* property would be the provision of an information pack for the appliances, electricity supply etc. In addition, some basic cleaning products would be useful as there were none at all.....not even a cloth or washing up liquid. These all had to be bought, and then left as we were flying.

It is however a superb property. Ideal if you just want to chill and read books around the pool surrounded by stunning scenery.

A memorable experience

  • 5 of 5

This place is indeed a gem! Perfect accommodation, tastefully furnished villa, and great views. Our initial reason for going there was to relax away from the usual tourist destinations, and experience the real Tuscan way of life. This place definitely allowed us to do that. It's close to Castel del Piano, which has great food shops, with freshly-made pastas and breads - also some good restaurants if you don't wish to cook. Gorgeous landscape, great attention to comfort and cleanliness, beautiful pool area

La Casa di Elsa is at the foot of Monte Amiata, a mountainous area full of walkable routes between the Maremma, the Val d'Orcia (one of the most photographed places of Tuscany with its picturesque scenery) and the Val di Chiana, not far from Umbria and Lazio. This is why the house, thanks to efficient road links, will be an excellent departure point for tourist spots of unquestionable artistic and cultural wealth - Orvieto, Siena and Grosseto among the major towns and small villages, no less fascinating, like Pitigliano, built entirely on tufa rock, San Quirico d'Orcia and Pienza, are all just one hour away at the most. Those who love nature in all its forms can explore the slopes of Monte Amiata, drive along the shores of Lake Bolsena, admire the grasslands and fauna of the Maremma National Park or plunge into the cool waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Built in 1400 and used as a trout pond and holiday home for the noble Sforza family, the Peschiera is the highlight of the delightful borgo of Santa Fiora, just 5 minutes' walk from the house, with shops, supermarkets and restaurants.
