  • The owner of a large house in Casole, which has belonged to her family for several hundred years, has converted three spacious apartments for holiday accommodation. The front door on the main street opens to a staircase shared by all three apartments. Thick walls, heavy beamed ceilings, with terracotta and wood floors give beauty and quiet.

    Carefully thought out to cope with the foibles of this lovely old house, which has seen few changes over the past centuries, the work has been done with pride and love, taking care to retain the inherent charms of the original building. The results are delightful- there are good quality fittings for bathrooms and kitchens, new, hand made terracotta floors in some rooms, hardwood in others. Interior stairs have specially designed wrought iron railings, and most of the bedrooms enjoy views of the quiet countryside at the rear.

    Accommodation

    Apartment Il Musicista is on the first floor: the comfortable living room has a spacious kitchen section, separated from the rest of the room by a tiled worktop counter. One double bedroom has a shower room ensuite and there is a second shower room and a large double or twin bedroom.

    This apartment is a comfortable, welcoming place to stay, in one of the loveliest Tuscan hill towns. The views from the rear windows of this house display the glorious countryside for miles around, with castles and towns such as Volterra and San Gimignano in the distance, tempting you to explore.

    Local area

    Casole is a charming village with restaurants, grocery shops and friendly cafes. There are a series of festivals throughout the year, of which the most important is Casole's very own version of the Palio, in early July. A horse race up the hill is preceded by flag waving and festivities and culminates in a large village outdoors meal, with the local butcher working the barbecue!

    Thanks to an art school run by an English sculptor, Nigel Konstam, you will often find artists ensconced with their easels in various corners of the village. The tiny local museum also has beautiful Etruscan finds from local digs, as well as the work of a local village artist from the 15th century. The views from the village go out as far as San Gimignano, with its famous towers, as well as across to the hills of Chianti in the east, and the forested hills of the National Park to the west.
