Agriturismo Elvira is a vineyard and farm in a beautiful position a 10 minute walk from a charming village. Its resident owners have created attractive holiday accommodation in the farmhouse and a detached cottage. Below the farmhouse a swimming pool enjoys beautiful views over the plains below, and is flanked by the vineyards the owners farm for their wine.
A few hundred metres away, the village of Casole d'Elsa has 3 restaurants, a couple of grocery shops, a butcher, a chemist and a scattering of Cafes, as well as 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.
A firm favourite with families and couples alike, Agriturismo Elvira makes a great base for those who never want to venture further than the little nearby village as well as those who want a base for all the historical, cultural and artistic delights that Tuscany has to offer.
