How to reach Costarella by car Address: Strada di Vico N° 23, 50021 Barberino Val d’Elsa (Firenze) Leave the A1 motorway at Firenze Impruneta and take the Firenze-Siena dual carriageway on the right, come off at Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, and continue towards the town, going past it towards Barberino Val d'Elsa, in the direction of Poggibonsi - Siena. Once you have gone through the town of Barberino Val d'Elsa, take the provincial road no. 50 on the right and follow the signs for Vico d'Elsa-Sant'Appiano. At the next intersection, about 2km further on, turn left and follow the signs for Pastine taking the right, turn-off at the first fork in the road and turning right again into Strada di Vico.

All was perfect !

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour extraordinaire en Toscane. L 'hébergement est tout à fait conforme à l annonce du site. Nos 3 enfants ont beaucoup profite du jardin. Les propriétaires étaient sur place et nous ont accueilli avec chaleur et convivialité, et étaient prets à nous donner de nombreux conseils de visite. La maison est idéalement située, à 30 km respectivement de Sienne et Florence, du Chianti; à 15 km de san gimignano, et de nombreux villages magnifiques de cette région de italie. Nous avons tres envie de y revenir !

Séjour de charme en Toscane

  • 4 of 5

Accueil agréable et très discret des propriétaires qui partagent le terrain. La maison est très agréable à vivre et le paysage typique de la campagne toscane est superbe. Nous avons pu partager notre séjour entre la campagne et les villes de Florence, Sienne et Vinci.

Merci pour ces si belles vacances !

Preciosa casa en un lugar único

  • 5 of 5

La casa es tan bonita y acogedora como parece en las fotos. La situación es perfecta para visitar La Toscana, aunque cuando llegas te parece que está muy escondida, no tardas en descubrir que en realidad estás equidistante de todo y que es fácil acceder a las carreteras principales. El equipamiento de la casa es correcto: de las tres camas principales, la de matrimonio es cómoda, pero las dos pequeñas necesitan renovar el colchón; todas tienen mosquitera, necesaria en pleno campo. La decoración refleja el gusto exquisito de los propietarios y sobre las vistas sólo hay que decir que lo que ves de frente son las torres de San Giminignano. El anfitrión te hace sentir bienvenido y en casa desde el primer instante. ¡¡Gracias por todo!!

Very comfortable house at perfect, quiet location

  • 4 of 5

A perfect place for a family with two children. Central to Pisa, Sienna, Florence and Chianti, close to San Gimignano. You need a car. A lot of restaurants / shops etc are good to reach by car. The house is spaceous, very complete in equipment (dishwasher, washing machine, WIFI, TV etc. Only a HIFI - radio is missing) and has a magnificent view. Nice terrace and spaceous garden.

We had a very nice time!
