The Tuscan countryside, San Gimignano and Certaldo. Leaving the main road, a country lane lined with cypress trees and surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, wheat fields and woods, leads us to Caselsa. The unique world-famous San Gimignano with its 'beautiful towers' lies behind us and to one side is the medieval village of Certaldo Alta, Boccaccio's birthplace also famous for Della Robbia's ceramics, Benozzo Gozzoli's frescoes, Pier Francesco Fiorentino and other well-known medieval painters.

The ancient Tower and the completely restored farmhouse. Caselsa's name comes from the River Elsa which flows through the valley. It was the last house to the North of a large farm and originally only consisted of a single 'Tower' built explicitly as a look out for approaching strangers. Over the years the building was enlarged several times and in fact the various periods of construction are easy to see. In 1992 the whole building was completely renovated and divided into 5 apartments, each equipped with all the modern comforts (Satellite-TV, W-Fi Internet access) and with a swimming pool (6x12m), barbecue. Each apartment has its own garden equipped with a table and chairs. The property is completely fenced.

Geographic position ideal to visit the main art cities. It takes less than an hour by train or car to the major historic centres: Florence, Siena, Volterra, Lucca and Pisa. On request, a chef could cook typical Tuscan menues directly at your holiday apartment.

E Hans (DANMARK) - agosto 2014 Hele Caselsa er flot og meget omhyggeligt restaureret, og lejligheden har alt hvad man har brug for. Det er ikke nødvendigt at have egne knive eller andet med, kun badehåndklæder. Serviceniveauet er meget højt. Ved ankomsten sent lørdag modtages vi af en meget venlig og hjælpsom ejer, der fortæller hvor der er søndagsåbent samt andre nyttige oplysninger. I lejligheden var der kaffe og brød til søndag morgen, samt vin og vand så vi kunne klare os ind til vi kunne komme ud at handle søndag. Håndklæder og vistestykker byttes onsdag og lørdag. Sengetøjet skiftes lørdag af de venlige damer. Der er pænt, rent og ordentligt alle steder, og så er der meget fredeligt, også fordi der kun er 7 lejligheder. God udeplads med borde og stole, en pool på 12 x 6 , liggestole og parasoller samt en flot udsigt over landskabet fuldender billedet. Vi har boet på Agriturismo flere steder i Italien og tøver ikke med at sige, at dette er det bedste sted vi har haft den fornøjelse at bo på. Vi kan anbefale at man bortset fra om søndagen benytter COOP i Castelfiorentino frem for den i Certaldo der ligger indeklemt i byen og er meget trang.
