Description from manager

Description

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. La Casa di Elsa dates back to the beginning of the 20th century when it was nothing more than a humble rural house, with animal stalls on the ground floor and the peasants' rooms immediately above; not far away is the now uninhabited old owner's house. The skillful renovation which was completed in 2013, the excellent finishing touches, the simple and refined furnishing, the lush garden and the panoramic swimming pool make La Casa di Elsa today a home with all comforts ready to meet your highest expectations. The green woods all around and the characteristic medieval town centre of Santa Fiora towering above are just a taste of the wonders that this corner of Tuscany has to offer, starting from Etruscan towns steeped in history. The good road network facilitates short excursions, including trips to the sunny beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea, just an hour’s drive away. The medieval village of Santa Fiora, considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, contains the remains of the ancient castle Aldobrandesco and the Peschiera downstream revealing the ancient and rich history of the country, made of miners and mines, fishermen and fish, nobles and palaces. The oldest part of the town was built around the remains of the Aldobrandesque fortifications, of which the Clock Tower is adorned with the ceramics of the Della Robbia family, whose battlements date back to the 19th century. The Peschiera, a quiet mirror of limpid water dedicated to trout breeding, is a small and enchanting park immersed in silence and tranquility.

Interior

The house has two floors which, due to the sloping ground, have both direct access to the outside. One of the rooms has an en-suite bathroom with shower while the other two share a second bathroom with shower. From the hallway a wooden staircase leads to the living area which consists of a large open-plan space with toilet, living room, well-equipped kitchen and dining room. From here two large French windows open on to the portico, furnished with table and chairs, where you can enjoy alfresco meals whilst admiring the landscape.

Park

The woods and the olive grove, part of a 4-hectare estate, border the garden surrounding the house with many tall trees typical of this area such as chestnuts, oaks and cypresses, walnut, hazelnut, cherry and apple trees. You can spend your days relaxing in the beautiful garden with lawn enlivened by colourful flower pots, full of interesting corners such as the the brickwork barbecue where you can cook delicious grills. Not far from the main entrance is a gravel parking area from which two charming paths will take you, in just a few minutes, through the woods, alongside little streams, to the village centre.

Swimming Pool

A few large steps cross the lawn along the 20 m separating the house from the panoramic swimming pool, set in the lowest terrace of the garden and clearly visible from the rooms and patio. Edged in stoneware tiles and lined in PVC, the pool measures 5 x 11 m, with a constant depth of 1,40 m and has salt purification. Roman steps lead into the water and it is equipped with internal and external lighting. The solarium area extends over a level surface, partly paved but mostly lawn, provided with sunbeds, umbrellas and a cold-water shower; all trees create numerous areas of shade, welcome during the hottest days.
