This is your property ?


Richard & Sarah at Casa del Sole offer a unique farm holiday experience in a beautiful and central part of Tuscany. Forget about your troubles - the view alone soothes the soul.

The idea of Casa del Sole is to offer holidaymakers a quiet rural base from which it is possible to see many of the 'tourist attractions' in Florence, Lucca, Siena and Pisa or where you can spend your holiday on the farm soaking up the secluded, calming atmosphere and spotting the wide range of wildlife on your doorstep.

The access road is steep and has six hairpin bends and there is also a steep walk up to the house from the car parking area of about 150 yards. We have no problem getting our large people carrier up our drive but we would advise visitors not to hire estate or low slung cars.

NOTE: 2007 bookings now being taken - new changeover day: FRIDAY

The Chestnut house was originally the building in which the chestnuts were roasted. We have converted it into a cosy one up - one down hideaway.
