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.

f. Jette (DANMARK) - marzo 2013 Caselsa er et skønt sted, hvor der fra de fleste lejligheder er en fantastisk udsigt, skønt og stort poolområde og allerbedst - der er flere liggestole og parasoller end der normalt er på sådanne steder. Jeg skal sige, at mens vi var der, var der maks. 4 ud af 7 lejligheder besat, og vi havde liggestole i overskud. Der er rent, meget hyppig skift af håndklæder og sengetøj og tæt til indkøb og spisesteder. Stedet er et fantastisk sted til dem, som værdsætter smuk natur lige unden for vinduet og fred og ro. Småbørnsfamilier skal, efter min opfattelse, overveje om dette er stedet, da de øvrige gæster givet forventer fred og ro. Det ligger lidt i denne ferieform. Varm anbefaling til stedet.
