Dan's House

Casole d'Elsa, Siena

A spacious village apartment and panoramic terrace in the heart of Tuscany

  • Sleeps 4
  • 2 Bedrooms
  • Wifi

Previously owned by the director of Invitation To Tuscany, Dan’s House was built in the early 20th Century, high up against the medieval town walls. Following traditional village practice, it forms a part of many houses, each intertwining with each other; but unlike many medieval houses, this one has tall rooms and airy windows, taking in the panoramic views from the village.

Accommodation

From a private parking space on the street level a stepped lane leads up to the front door and then continues on up to the main village street. The accommodation, all on one level, is based around a tall 'L' shaped vaulted corridor. Beautifully restored, the house is comfortably furnished and light. The big kitchen has modern equipment, a cherry-wood table, an amazing trough of a yellow marble sink as well as a traditional Tuscan store cupboard and a sofa. Leading off the kitchen is a breakfast room, with a door to a large, furnished corner terrace, partially shaded by a pergola and having extensive views.

Opposite the kitchen is the spacious master double bedroom which has a curtained opening leading to a spacious living room with an L-shaped sofa, sat. TV and views towards the hills of Chianti. Across the corridor from the living room is another large double bedroom also enjoying the same views. Off the entrance hallway are a a full bathroom with a separate shower stall with a beautiful marble floor, a store room/laundry room and a separate WC and washbasin. The stone wall at the rear of the bathroom is part of the medieval village wall, exposed during restoration. It stitches an evocative juncture from the Middle Ages through to the elegant 19th century feel of the house with modern equipment completing the transition to the present day.

Nice little touches:

  • Having the cafes and restaurants of the village close by makes for a very relaxing holiday
  • The views are fabulous
  • The old medieval village walls run through the bathroom, next to the large bathtub

Local area

From the terrace you might just catch an aroma of tempting pastries made in the patisserie around the corner on the street below. If you climb the steps beyond the front door you reach the main village street. Here you can enjoy daily life in one of the best Tuscan hill villages, where many of the friendly residents trace their ancestry back over five hundred years. There are bars, restaurants, a pizzeria, excellent local food shops, banks, an enoteca, a good museum and a castle for a town hall. You can walk round the village walls and admire the brand new amphitheatre on the other side of the village, relax in the main street and enjoy the many concerts and festivals put on during balmy summer evenings.

This area is a paradise for walking, and good road connections make touring by car a delight.
