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.
