Central Tuscany is the area between Siena and Florence, west of Chianti. It is where Dan Wrightson grew up in 1974 and hence is still the area we know best and where we have most of our properties. It is also, in our opinion, one of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany, with a soft and cultivated landscape, interspersed with large areas of forest.

Casole d’Elsa is at the centre of Central Tuscany, and is perhaps the loveliest of the Tuscan hill villages, with approximately 1,000 inhabitants. There is one main street, and two village squares; one with the seminary and village well, the other with the ancient castle, still used as the Town Hall. This road becomes a delightful meeting place for locals and tourists alike. Whatever the reasons, somehow there is a very special community here – perhaps it is the proportion of the width of the street with the height of the buildings; perhaps it is the fascination of the alterations to the stone and brick buildings during Casole’s existence over the past two thousand years. Maybe it is the fortunate geographical position of Casole in relation to larger towns such as Florence, Colle Val d’Elsa and Siena, allowing for a flourishing local population with roots going back countless centuries.
