Il Sole e la Luna at Partena, Colle di Val d'Elsa - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 to 4 people In Resort with Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Villa Soleluna is traditionally built from hand carved Tuscan stone nestling amongst other similar properties.  This one bedroomed ground floor apartment with its own private garden is ideal for couples wanting a relaxing holiday.

The property has the typical Tuscan terracotta tiled floors and beamed ceilings throughout.  The lounge diner is a very bright room with one wall entirely made of floor to ceiling glass windows with a glass door out to the garden.  This is reflective glass, which allows the light to flood into the room without the interior being seen. 

The lounge/diner has a traditional wooden table and chairs, a sofa, TV and an open fireplace in one corner.  The small kitchenette is off to one side, and has an oven with separate gas hobs, fridge with freezer section and filter coffee maker.

A doorway to the right leads into a small lobby area where doors open to the bathroom and the bedroom.  This is also where the main entrance door is.  The bathroom has a shower, basin and WC.  This is also where the washing machine is located.  The bedroom has an exposed brickwork arch over the antique style wrought iron painted double bed.

Outside the terrace is furnished with table, chairs and sun umbrella.  The private garden is surrounded by hedge and there are brightly planted terracotta pots dotted about.

Guests have use of a large communal brick built barbeque located nearby.

Traditional Tuscan ground floor apartment with its own private garden is ideal for couples planning a relaxing holiday.

Partena is a fully restored villa perched on the top of a hill of the Elsa valley providing it with fantastic views of the field and wood covered valley below. The hamlet is composed of a total of 18 houses, most of which are owned by locals who use them mainly as a country villa.

There is a large fenced pool on one side of the hamlet. The pool is shared by the residents of the hamlet and each has his own sunbeds. At the pool area there is a stone barbeque for use by all residents.

Partena is ideally positioned in central Tuscany just 6km from the town Colle Val d'Elsa which is famous for its crystal works. Also within easy driving distance are Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Casole d'Elsa and the famous San Galgano Abbey.

Due to its position on the hill the paths from the parking area and those within the hamlet are all sloped. Attached to Partena are some villas which are not part of the hamlet and therefore do not have access to the pool.

Approach road - all paved road

The fenced pool is located to one side of the hamlet. It is surrounded by shrubs and trees providing shade in part of the pool area throughout the day. Near the pool there is a stone communal barbeque. The area is a short distance away from the hamlet and therefore is wonderfully quiet.

There are several umbrellas around the pool to provide shade from the hot Tuscan sun. Each villa at Partena has its own sunbeds at the pool.
The fenced pool is 15x5 meters and 1.5 to 2.3 meters deep. It is open from June to September.

Guest villa score
We really enjoyed our 2 week stay here and liked the swimming pool especially as it was just across the path and always quiet. It was a good base for exploring the surrounding countryside.
Local attractions We particularly liked La Speranza bar and restaurant about a 10 minutes drive and the ice cream shop about the same distance in the opposite direction. Although you must book the restaurant to be certain of a table.It is also closed Mon and Tues. Plenty of towns nearby to explore if you want.
