  • Pinolo is an agriturismo apartment for 4 with a pool near the village of Casole d'Elsa in Tuscany. Set on a ridge in the Tuscan hills near Siena, it is the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday. There is a Pizzeria/Bar within 5 minutes walk while a few more minutes will take you up into the old village itself, with a number of restaurants and bars, good grocery stores and even a small museum and a couple of tiny art galleries for resident artists. Walk up for breakfast, then buy some fresh produce and wander home for a fresh lunch and spend the afternoon by the pool; it's a real Tuscan delight. With a swimming pool set near the farm's vineyard, a large patio overlooking it and great views, this is a very popular place for families and couples.

    Accommodation

    This apartment is set on the first floor of the old farmhouse, with lovely views out towards the Tuscan countryside. On the first floor of the farmhouse it is reached by external stairs, with a small (large enough for two to enjoy an evening drink, but no more) furnished loggia at the entrance. It has a large living room/kitchen with a dishwasher and a single sofa-bed for a child, a double bedroom, a bedroom with a single and a 3/4 bed, and a shower room. A shared laundry room has a washing machine, which guests may use for a small fee.

    Local area

    At the front of the farm, a path leads down to a duck pond and to the large swimming pool (don't get these two mixed up!), all within a gentle, evocative framework of vineyards and olive trees. With a wide, travertine-tiled surround, and plenty of sun loungers, the swimming pool is a soft ochre colour, blending comfortably with the olive groves and vineyards. Set in a delightful position down the hillside from the farm, it has extensive and beautiful views across to the Chianti hills.

    Further afield, beyond Casole d'Elsa, San Gimignano with its medieval towers is less than half an hour away, as is Monteriggioni while Siena is under an hour. Florence is around an hour away and can also be reached by train or bus from Siena or Poggibonsi. Tiny local villages abound, many of them with festivals and events during August and September, so exploring is well rewarded.

    Stayed at Pinolo in Casole d'Elsa - good sized apartment for 4 people, very clean and tidy and everything one would need for a holiday. Pool was a nice size with plenty of loungers/ seats around - and my favourite, a hammock hanging between 2 olive trees!
    5 mins walk to nearest pizza house (which did pastries for breakfast too) and the local produce stocked supermarket and about a 15 mins walk to the town - which is beautiful with a good handful of restaurants and bars.
    Invitation to Tuscany - Very helpful in terms of booking and finding us something that would suit us and our small-ish children. Would highly recommend

    We stayed in the upper floor of the farmhouse (Pinolo) at Agriturismo Elvira. The accommodation was great for our family of 4. A lovely large room for living/dining/cooking, plus 2 bedrooms and bathroom. There are pretty garden areas and terraces around the house where you can sit or eat al fresco with amazing views of the Tuscan and Chianti hills. The outdoor swimming pool and surrounding garden was great too! The hill town of Casole d'Elsa is a 15 - 20 minute walk with a good range of small shops plus some excellent places to eat and drink. Highly recommended

    We duly returned from Casole Saturday. There were no problems /breakages, the accommodation was perfect and the hosts very charming. All in all I would recommend to anyone and it has my highest credentials. We visited all around and had a great time.
    Thanks again for all your help

    We stayed here for a week in July - enjoyed the size and quality of the villa. It is close enough to everything but far enough away that you do not get the noise and it is very quiet. The one downside is the bathroom and specifically the shower - it is not very good. I also would not be wanting to do much cooking there. We ate out every night and it met our needs. The apartment is upstairs with nice views to San Gimignano but it is right next door to the owners. The owners are lovely though they do not speak English so it is hard to communicate. We recommend staying here though I would not repeat it myself as we would likely try another location next time. The village is 15 mins walk away and has some interesting eating options.

    We knew we wanted to stay in Tuscany but could not find the ideal location. After stumbling across 'Welcome to Tuscany', the helpful staff recommended we stay at a charming, converted Tuscan farm house in the heart of Tuscany upon the outskirts of the small village of Casole'd Elsa. Father and sons the three of us set off from Carcassonne, and thus arrived late at Pinolo and Rustico after a beautiful, but winding drive through the Alpes and across the fateful Rubicon. Upon arrival the owner kindly stayed to greet us, which set the scene for the rest of the holiday; as the owners who lived on site worked tirelessly to ensure the accommodation and surrounding grounds were kept immaculate whilst remaining innocuous but there to help if needed. Both apartments well equipped with original features and large luxurious bedrooms. The complex was landscaped throughout with thoughtful touches like flowers and charming Cypress trees which framed the gentle descent from farmhouse to pool. The Village was a short walk on foot and although small it was a lovely example of some of the bigger and more impressive Casole's situated in Tuscany. With a great selection of Restaurants - in particular the Enoteca which runs a set course that changed each night of the week and friendly English speaking owners. Beware of 'White Tuesdays', when the whole towns descends to paint the town, 'white' (called so because they do not sleep - like another day and something of a tradition in much of Tuscany) In terms of location Casole d'Elsa was perfectly situated to explore the well known likes of Sienna, Florence and San Gimignano (recommend Quattro Gatti for super!) but also the lesser known, and less spoilt towns such as Volterra (see the Etruscan tombs - utterly fascinating - like steeping down through the gates of Hades explored in Homer's literature), Montalcino and the medieval walled city of Monteriggioni. For those who love red wine, not more could be asked in this delightful region; and a pilgrimage to Saasicaia and the aforementioned Montalcino is well worth it. We like it so much, we would consider hiring the entire complex the next time and bringing all our friends!

    We felt so comfortable in this spacious apartment, with its lovely light and generous spaces just right for a small family holiday. The good-sized pool and the views of the vines to one side and the valley to the other are delightful. Strolling into Casole d'Elsa was so convenient for picking up supplies or going out for a good meal - truly an ideal location.

    I stayed here with my family when our son Ben was around 2 years old and we loved it. I know the village well, as it's where I grew up, so it was great to be able to walk in every morning - Ben and I would go in to buy breakfast for mum from the local cafe. The living room/ kitchen is large and comfortable, and the little loggia perfect for an evening drink with an ear out for sleeping children.
