Casa Verde in the hills close to Siena

Overview

From a tiny hamlet that dates back to 1047 ad, the views of Monte Maggio seem drawn on the horizon. The Montagnola region, just 30 minutes northwest of Siena, offers excellent mountain biking and hiking on its rugged yet welcoming terrain.
The entire hamlet consists of Casa Verde, four other stone structures and a Romanesque church. Behind Casa Verde is a garden with a private swimming pool, a furnished patio and a gazebo overlooking the ruins of an ancient tower and even San Gimignano on a clear day. The views from this hilly terrain extend beyond the trees into the surrounding countryside.
Simple rustic furnishings, tile floors and beamed ceilings adorn this home. Casa Verde is equipped with a washer, use of a shared clothes dryer, screens on all of the windows and satellite television. Guests have use of a shared dryer located in an outdoor laundry room. Firewood is included in the price. Maid service and meals are available if reserved when booking. Parking is 50 yards from the house.
Colle Val dElsa, within a 15 minute drive, has a supermarket, restaurants and shops. Within 30 minute drives are Siena and San Gimignano. Castellina in Chianti is 45 minutes away, and Volterra or Florence are both within an hour by car.

Reviews

Roberta was very friendly, we arrived very late but she waited for us and offered us a light dinner. the house is cool, comfortable, if you have children or elderly people can make them sleep downstairs more accessible. the house is well stocked and there are even two kitchens! Although there is no air conditioning the rooms are fresh and since there mosquito nets at night you can leave the windows open .... Here we are almost in a forest and is always fresh .... During the summer, we found it very pleasant dining outdoor especially in the evening, the day we often spent time outside. Siena and San Gimmignano are close and then I recommend you try the restaurants that you findin these cities ... the food is yummy. The owner also owns a smaller house next to the house we rented and then we decided to come back with more friends here ...... Darina Manova Sept 2012

About the owner
Over the last 18 years I have been finding accommodation for foreigners in Italy. I love Italy and I try to find the best solutions for all people who want to visit this beautiful country. All homes listed are selected, visit at least 3 times each year to make sure everything is in perfect order. Ask for advice, tips, information about the places you want to visit, I will try to give you all my lived experience. Each selected villa has something that makes it special, I always look for the atmosphere, the feeling with the people who live on site and can assure you kindness and help from each owner….
