Le Volte, is a very pretty apartment on a lovely estate close to the medieval town of San Gimignano. Vaulted ceilings create a cosy atmosphere in the living room which opens onto a terrace shaded by a pergola and a few steps away is a swimming pool which enjoys pretty views of the countryside.
Enjoying beautiful views of the rolling green hills and the towers of the city, The characteristic Le Volte apartment at Il Casolare lies in splendid countryside just over 3km from the medieval town of San Gimignano. Composed of two traditional Tuscan farmhouses and a cottage, Il Casolare is divided into seven apartments including the owner's apartment, Le Volte described here, and No 28 Il Granaio, all recently restored to a high standard to offer very comfortable accommodation. Surrounded by vineyards, Il Casolare has a fully enclosed garden filled with plants and flowers where there is also a swimming pool (14m x 6m) enjoying a magnificent panorama of the countryside.
A barbecue, utility room with washing machine, metered telephone and WiFi internet connection are available for communal use and parking is conveniently situated in the grounds of Il Casolare. The owner and his family, who are present most of the time, are friendly and helpful whilst not intruding on your privacy.
Il Casolare is immersed in beautiful countryside yet close to San Gimignano, and within walking distance of the historic Romanesque Church of Cellole and its stately cypress trees. Only 20 minutes drive away are the Castelfalfi country club with its splendid golf course and San Vivaldo where you will find in the woods 'Jerusalem in Tuscany' a medieval reproduction of the sanctuaries of Jerusalem. Just 14km away is the town of Poggibonsi with its rail and road links to Florence and Siena making these famous Tuscan towns easy to visit.

A friendly and warm welcome from geniun tuscan people. The room was nice and clean and had all comfort, simple but that's all you need up there. The garden was well kept and the swimming pool clean. The longchairs could have been more comfortable and the umbrellas more stable and bigger as they fell over when there was to much wind. The location of "Le Volte" is perfect with a wonderfull view of San Gimignano as well during the day as at night. It is peacefull and you feel "at home". San Gimignano is amazing and lies not to far away from big cities like Sienna, Pizza and Firenze if you want to visit them. You have a supermarket just outside the city walls where you can buy almost everything. We fell in love with Tuscany and in particular with San Gimignano where you should go to "le vecchia mura" to have a wonderfull diner with a view to die for. Don't forget to make a reservation because it's very busy. "Le Volte" is a good "price-quality" vacation. Thank you!

Le Volte is just the right size for a couple and the facilities just right for a mixture of eating-out and self-catering. Every morning and evening we had a beautiful view of San Gimignano in the near distance. We mostly used the place as a base for short day trips but also appreciated our base as a place to relax in or to use the pool. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

This was an absolutely wonderful place to stay. We were here for the first week of our honeymoon, and found it to be in a beatiful, peaceful location with very friendly owners. The apartment was lovely, clean and met expectations and the gardens and pool were beautifully maintained. We have already recommended this place to family and friends.
The booking process with Bella Toscana was simple and the information provided was helpful and clear. I would definitely book a holiday with Bella Toscana again, and we will definitely be back to Le Volte.
