The Tuscany region
Tuscany is steeped in history with many beautiful towns and cities to visit. Nearby Florence (about an hour's drive or by rail from nearby Poggibonsi or Certaldo) is home to the world famous Uffizi museum, The Duomo and 'Ponte Vecchio' bridge. This former capital of Italy is packed with historic buildings and beautiful statues can be found in many of the open squares.
Historic Siena is home to the 'Palio' horse race every July and is less than an hours drive. You can stroll through the winding cobbled streets taking in the fabulous atmosphere this historic town has to offer. There are many designer shops, restaraunts and public gardens to enjoy.
The area is famous for its wines - amongst the best are Chianti and the DOCG 'Vernaccia di San Gimignano' white wine.
The Tuscan countryside is beautiful and the changing light has inspired painters over the ages. The climate is warm throughout the spring and autumn - summers are hotter but are tempered by cooling light breezes.
Casale San Frediano is a perfect starting place for fascinating excursions to the historic region of Tuscany.
San Gimignano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its famous stone towers look over the cobbled streets and paths that wind through the centre of this charming Tuscan town. There is ample parking and exploring the squares and gardens within the city walls reveals small shops selling local food specialities and wines. There are regular festivals and further information and photos can be found on the San Gimignano Official Website at; www.sangimignano.com
The medieval town of Volterra is equally close by. Sitting high on a hill overlooking Podere Torricchi the town was a film set for the recent hit 'New Moon' - the second of the Twighlight Trilogy. There are many beautiful shops selling local 'Alabaster' and the views towards the coast are simply breathtaking.

"Centre of The Tuscany"
There are two separate houses on the property. During our stay the smaller one wasn't booked so we had the whole area just for ourselves.The bigger house expressed ideally our expectations how th… More
Thank you for your kind review and very good description of the house. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the house was as you would expect from a Tuscan property. Thank you also about your kind words about the service Monica and I were able to provide. I know that you were a little concerned about finding the house so I am pleased that you got there from the directions - it is easier in the daytime which is a good tip for future guests. I hope you will find your way back to Tuscany again in the future.

"True tuscany !"
We stayed in this lovely apartment in September. Surrounded by olive groves and nestled in the countryside, it was a delight to be there. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and furnished in a traditional Tuscan style, nice spacious bedroom and comfortable. it is a little off the beaten track but this is inevitable as these properties are former farm buildings, the advantage of being off the road is that it is so peaceful and charming. We saw wild boar , hares and various birds in the lanes around. it is perfectly located to visit the major attractions of San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena and Florence, also a super local restaurant and pizzeria only a few minutes down the road. We would definitely return to this charming apartment.
