Description of the Tavarnelle Val di Pesa vacation cottage rental
CASTELLARE DI CELLOLE. Almost your own private villa without the cost..only three rental units use shared pool. Cellole's loving owners found it abandoned over 20 years ago , little more than a heap of rubble and with infinite patience and care lovingly restored it and brought it back to life and to the splendid residence that it is today. This imposing group of buildings today includes the owners residence which incorporates the old church and three cottages which are available for rent. We pride ourselves on the fact that we like to keep a certain exclusivity and therefore there are never more than 10 people on the property at any one time (more often only 6) and frequently one has the exclusive use of the garden and pool, we prefer children to be over 14 years of age. The property is suitable for the individual discerning tourist who wants peace & quiet and the exclusivity of having almost a private villa for themselves without the cost. Cellole is also ideal for a honeymoon , and we are happy to say many engagements to marry have taken place here and also several small weddings.....a very romantic hideaway.

Area Information
Situated in a strategic position halfway between Florence and Siena and within easy access of all the most important tourist sites, yet immersed in the quiet of the countryside where the birds sing and in the hot summer evenings the fireflies glow. Far from major roads and motorways the only sound you will hear is the odd tractor ploughing the vines. What better way to spend a relaxing holiday in our mature garden , taking a dip in the large (12X6 m) pool and sunbathing on wooden sun loungers with mattresses, lunching under the shady pergolas or just sipping a glass of wine, or perhaps reading a book under a shady tree. With both Florence and Siena little over half an hour away by car what could be easier than sightseeing the wonderful art treasures that Tuscany has to offer, returning in the latter part of the day to enjoy a quick dip before dinner in the garden or a foray out to one of the many typical restaurants in the area.....some of which still very good value.
Cottage Pino is a cosy semi detached cottage on two floors ideal for a couple or up to four people. On the ground floor enter into the airy lounge through one of the two sets of glass doors, there is a settee for 3 with a matching armchair and bookshelves , Sat T.V and CD player. Up two steps in to the fully fitted kitchen with hob, oven, extractor fan, fridge/freezer, washing machine and open fireplace. A square table and four chairs make up the eating area in the kitchen. Upstairs two double bedrooms one with twin beds and en-suite shower , the other with a double queen size bed is next door to the bathroom with wash basin with vanity unit, bidet and w.c.. From all the upstairs windows there are spectacular views over the countryside.Outside is a very shady pergola with wooden garden furniture , the BBQ is shared in the main garden near the pool.
