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.

 Albert (USA) - settembre 2014 Roberto is the consumate host and the villa is great. We had a wonderful time and very convenient to many places in Tuscany
t. Jacob (DANMARK) - luglio 2014 Vi nød opholdet ved Certaldo. Jeg kunne forstå på jer inden afrejsen at I endnu ikke havde været forbi "Caselsa" hvor vi boede. Jeg kan fortælle at det var lejlighed af meget høj standard med en fantastisk beliggenhed. Vi fór vild på vejen der til, da stedet er gemt lidt ad vejen og ejeren var så sød at komme og hente os. Alt i alt en rigtig god oplevelse, med god service og imødekommenhed. I Certaldo kan jeg varmt anbefale den gamle bydel, hvor man tager en "bjergbane" op til. Fantastisk bydel, uden ret mange turister, men til gengæld nogle ganske fortrinlige restauranter. Kan informere om at vi fortsatte turen efterfølgende til Greve in Chianti, hvor vi boede et sted kaldet "Santo Stefano". Jeg ved ikke om I kender det, men det kan varmt anbefales. Lille vingård med små lejligheder, lækker pool, søde mennesker, skøn vin! Tak for jeres hjælp. Vi vil anbefale jer til venner og bekendte!
