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 place was inhabited since then. The nature lovers will enjoy the river reserves and wildlife sanctuaries of the area. Culinary specialities from land and sea await your discovery. 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. Thermal baths with entrance fee also in Rapolano terme. A very nice public pool is in the town of Colle di Val d'Elsa.

About Gabriele

Gabriele and his wife Patrizia. The owner works also with the Insurance company Allianz as Advisor, both from home and from Siena office.

Gabriele purchased this apartment in 1971

Why Gabriele chose Val d'Elsa - Siena

This was the house where my parents since 1971 came every sunday to have lunch and keep a small garden

What makes this apartment unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Arriving at Colloritto, what a pleasure. Such a lovely home and what a spectacular wiew. A place that feels like coming home. From here you can see many beautiful places in a short driving distance. But only driving through the countryside gives you great happiness.

For people who like to go fishing there is a small but beautiful lake with Black Bass just 10 minutes walk away from home

Tuscany gem

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is a perfect location from which to explore Tuscany. Your hosts Gabriele and Patrizia are charming. Take advantage of their friend's wine and olive oil, very reasoably priced. They provide directions for Casole d'Elsa which are easy to follow. If my travels take me back to Tuscany again I would definetly stay here.

An amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Is really nice, big and clean, although a bit cold.

The owners are very nice and helpful, one day they even got my laundry inside before it started raining. The wine was really good and the olive oil they got for us is the best I've ever tried!

Casole d’Elsa is the municipality town of our Property. It has been awarded of the “orange flag” as one of the best spots in Italy where nature, history and genuine food can be enjoyed together at their best. The area of Casole d’Elsa and Volterra was one of the centres of the Etruscan nation. All the pottery and jewellery found in the local tombs are shown in the Etruscan museums of Casole d’Elsa, Volterra and Colle Val d’Elsa. Elsa is the name of the river that flows northbound in the main valley, and joins the bigger “Arno” river near Empoli, leaving on its right side the hilly and more densely populated wine region “Chianti”. Between Colloritto and the sea instead, the quiet road heading south passes by the medieval town of Radicondoli, the geyser and minerary region of “Le colline Metallifere” now natural reserve, and the town of Massa Marittima with its stunning square and church in sight of the sea and Elba Island.

Golf: Colle Val d'Elsa (18 km) 9 holes Golf Course; Bagnaia 25 km; Castelfalfi (30 km, 10 km past S.Gimignano) 18 holes Golf Course with restaurant and Golf Club, Punta Ala (100 km) 18 holes Golf Course by the sea with restaurant and Golf Club.

The apartment 'Il Granaio' was used as a barn before its renovation. It is on the ground floor. The kitchen-living area opens directly on the private garden facing south-east. In the spring and summer seasons it is nice to have breakfast in the garden, under the shade of the pine tree. In the kitchen there are chairs and sofa, and a fireplace that our guests can use to sit by the fire or grill. From the kitchen we can reach the master bedroom, the single bedroom and the bathroom. Italian TV on request. A pool for children, that also adults can enjoy in the heat of the summer, is available.
