Beautiful property, conveniente location in the city centre of Colle val d'Elsa and great hosts. They helped us for restaurant choice and they have been superkind!
Gabriele was in holiday when I arrived (first January), however his parents live in front of the "la ceppaio" and there was no problem to find them. His parents have been friendly, clear and nice. They explained me everything about the flat and the place to visit (I have been in San Gimignano, Volterra and Chianti Senese). The house is in the center of Colle di Val D'Elsa, in the middle of San Gimignano and Volterra (20minutes by car). The flat is a real tipical Toscany's house and the pictures are real (all is in stone). Also the city is nice, a good choise for take a trip in the cities indicated above.
La ceppaia è un luogo magico.
Nel freddo artico dell'ultima notte dell'anno il calore e il fascino italiano 50's di questo piccolo angolo di Toscana ha avuto la meglio!
My husband and I were met by Gabriele's parents. They were very nice and helpful - pointing us in the right direction for a delicious dinner and also providing suggestions for where we might want to visit. The flat is spacious and clean. There is a slight odor in the apartment due to being further underground but you stop noticing it within a few minutes. Other than that the apartment has everything that one might need and is a great central location for visiting Tuscany.
Beautiful house in a dreaming village. It's difficult to find because the streets indicated by Google maps is a very small way, if you don't pay attention is very hard to get.
Gabriele's parents received us. They are very kind people. They explained to us every detail.
The house is full equipped with everything you think. From umbrella, ecological bag for market, napkins, soaps for washing machine, to simply things in kitchen like salt, oil, sugar, coffee. ...
High recommend place. I hope to return some day...
wunderbarer gastgeber.....coole (email hidden)fiel uns sehr gut....alles bestens
