Il Casolare is an independent Tuscan villa with a wonderful terrace furnished with a large table and chairs, with a terracotta barbeque to one side. It overlooks the pool. Outside the villa is a second terrace furnished with a couple of comfortable external armchairs.
Inside is a wonderfully, typical Tuscan villa kitchen with a huge fireplace and a pizza oven to one side. It is well equipped and includes gas hobs, an oven and a fridge with separate freezer compartment. In the centre of the room is a small table with four chairs. The ceiling is of terracotta tiles and wooden beams while the floor has the traditional terracotta tiles.
An arch to one side of the room provides access to the open plan lounge and dining room. Here the terracotta and wood ceiling is higher, and an exposed stone wall provides the room with plenty of charm. To one side is a large dining table that comfortably seats 8 people.
The centre of the room has two double sofas around a large open fire place. Passing under a huge, original terracotta arch there is a second sitting area at the far end of the room. It's furnished with two double sofas, a writing desk with chair and access to the front terrace and pool area.
Off this room is a small hall from where stairs lead up to a mezzanine floor which has been furnished as a children's bedroom and is only suitable for children due to the low ceiling. It has a lovely wooden floor and two single beds. It cannot be set up as a double room.
The first bedroom is to the left of the hall. It is a bright room with a large double bed and a double wardrobe. It has a pretty terracotta floor and a wooden ceiling. Above this room is the mezzanine floor.
The second double bedroom is at the end of the hall. It is a warm room with a high ceiling of terracotta and wooden beams. There is a double wardrobe and an antique chest of drawers in the room. Glass and wood doors lead out to the front terrace and pool area. Off the hall are two bathrooms, one with a tub and handheld shower, while the other has a shower.
2 double bedrooms, cannot be made into twin bedrooms.
1 twin bedroom suitable for children only.

The pool is about 10 metres away from the Il Casolare.

Location: Casa Grazia

Casa Grazia is a wonderful property ideally positioned to visit San Gimignano, Volterra and Florence. It is a group of 3 individually villas surrounded by a well maintained and completely fenced garden.
The sparkling, shared pool is located in a sunny area of the garden. It is overlooked by one of the villas, while the others are a short distance away on a lower level of the garden.
The gardens include a large sunny, flat area, ideal for ball games, and a pretty shady area with tall trees. Neighbouring Casa Grazie is another property with a private residence.

Pool Info

The large, shared pool is located near one of the three houses.  It is surrounded by a pretty paved deck dotted with sunbeds and umbrellas. Part of the day there is also cooling shade provided by the tall trees to one side of the area.
To one side there are roman steps to enter the pool. While the other side has a very deep end so care needs to be taken with small children.

Pros Die Lage ist einfach wundervoll idyllisch und ruhig. Die Besitzer sind einfach supernett. Wir bekamen sogar einen Kuchen gebacken. Das Haus mit dem wundervollen Kamin verschönert die Abende und die Natur direkt vor der Haustür mit den wundervollen Vögeln und alten Baumbestand auf dem Grundstück sind überwältigend. Das Pool sowie das ganze Anwesen sind sehr gepflegt. Wir konnten das Pool im Oktober leider nicht mehr nutzen, das es schon zu kühl war. Aber in den warmen Monaten ist es sicherlich genial für eine Abkühlung. Es ist perfekt um alle wundervollen Orte der Toskana zu besuchen. Es liegt sehr zentral auf einer Anhöhe und ist immer ca. 2 Grad kühler als in umliegenden Städten. In der Nähe gibt es, wie überall in der Toskana, tolle Restaurants.

Aber auch in der eigenen Küche am Gasherd hat das Kochen Spaß gemacht!
Cons Das einzige was die Ruhe ab und zu stört ist Hundegebell. Aber das können die Besitzer auf Wunsch auch beheben.
Local attractions San Giminiano war unser Lieblingsziel. Ruhig und gemütlich mit vielen guten Restaurants.
