First floor apartment in a farmhouse situated in the famous Chianti region. The village of Certaldo is only 4 km away. Large equipment, panoramic swimming pool. 50 km from Florence and 45 km from Siena.


Leaving the provincial road, a typical country road, lined with cypresses, vineyards, olive groves, wheat fields and woods, will lead you to Caselsa. Behind you will be San Gimignano and its towers, unique and world famous. To the side you will see the medieval village of Certaldo Alto, home of Boccaccio, also known for its Della Robbia ceramics.
The geographical position of Caselsa will allow you to reach in less than an hour, either by train or by car, the major art cities of Tuscany: Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Lucca and Pisa.

The name "Caselsa" derives from the river Elsa that flows through the valley, and in ancient times the structure was the last house to the north of a large farm that initially consisted of only the 'Tower' built specifically to detect the approach of strangers.
Today's apartments, 5 in total, are equipped with the most modern comforts while maintaining the atmosphere that only such ancient farmhouses can offer. The solarium and the large swimming pool (size 6x12 m, depth 1.40 m) open up to a boundless view of vineyards and olive groves. From here you can enjoy at any time of the day, from dawn to dusk, the famous Chianti landscapes. The garden is completely fenced.

Each apartment has an outdoor area equipped with a table and chairs for your outdoor dinners and evenings. Furthermore, on request, a chef can prepare typical Tuscan dinners or lunches for you to enjoy directly in your apartments.
What makes Caselsa really special? Its ancient stones, the soaring tower, the arches, the large fireplaces and the wooden beams will make you feel immersed in another era for a moment, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Everything was very nice, warm recommendation.

 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!
