The area lends itself to a fun filled family holiday, especially when you are interested about the local culture, traditions and meeting the Tuscans. Casole d'elsa is just 1 km from the Holiday House ( there is a well mantained path , illuminated at night) and it is a lovely little town with an exceptionally packed social calendar. You will always find concerts , markets , activities and events that will bring you into the authentic atmosphere.

Great base for Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Federica and her family were great hosts; Federica provided a really useful book giving details of local towns, sites, restaurants and shops, she was also available if you needed additional advice.

The property itself is great, very accurately described. I found email contact very good, she got back to me promptly, and her English is very good.

Thanks for a great holiday Federica, hope to see you again soon! Ciao!

Gorgeous house, area, perfect hostess!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this rental property! Everything was clean, fresh, and well organized. The location in the rolling hills of Tuscany was unbelievable! Federica was the kindest, most helpful and gracious hostess. She even located a restaurant in the nearby village where our son could eat safely with his allergies, which was a huge relief on the night we arrived! The booking process was so easy with Federica, and she responded promptly to any questions we had. The house was quiet and the proximity to nearby sights was just perfect! You won't want to leave when you stay here!

great stay

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic, charming hosts - suggested day trip itineraries that were well worthwhile, off the tourist routes. The recently built apartment is tastefully appointed with a bit of traditional and new. Beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Podere Monti Mandorlo . Federicaa and her family could not have been more welcoming. We had three couples and did day trips to surrounding towns and Florence. There was a festival in town while we visited and so things were quite lively. The surrounding towns and wineries along with the good food at the various restaurants in Casole..
