We wanted a property in this town which we know from previous visits so that we could eat in the fantastic osteria in the town. The apartment, which is in the town walls, was of a reasonable size or the two of us and having a nice garden with a good view was really good. The living area is a little sparse but is okay. The TV is useless - only a tiny screen and no English language channels. The kitchen area was satisfactory and the equipment was adequate - but no dishwasher! The bedroom was very large and the bed was comfortable. It is only a few minutes walk to the centre of the village and the all important osteria. Its also located in a convenient position to visit the hill towns. Allocated parking is about 200 yards down the hill so not too bad

our appartment was perfect.It is a very nice restaurated cave of the entrance tower of the high sited little y village. In the little garden there is a nice overvieuw of th toscane. You don't have to rush to the big city's. They not only very near, but it was easyer to live with and like the people of the ancient part of casole d'elsa, without being surrounded by masstourisme. Sure w'll be back and as soon as possible.

terrasse ombragée très agréable avec une vue superbe.
deux pièces de belles dimensions avec un petit salon surplombant la terrasse.
l'orientation au nord et les murs très épais permettent de garder la fraîcheur.
location bien placée pour une découverte de la Toscane en voiture (Sienne, Florence, Pise...)
