We spent four nights at La Ceppaia in colle di Val d'Elsa and found the apartment very charming and comfortable, just like the pictures. Our host Gabriele was welcoming and made several recommendations which we followed up and enjoyed. We visited Florence by bus, buy your tickets before you board, it is about 40 minute ride. We also visited San Gimignano and Volterra in same day, we loved these towns and bought local made tablecloths and local Alabaster items at good prices, worth a visit. The area is typical Tuscany, rolling hills and picture perfect a delight.
The historic town where the accommodation is based has big range of restaurants and bars and lovely to walk around, day or night, safe and family friendly. We loved it and highly recommend it, thank you to our host and his family.

The family was really helpful and kind welcoming us on arrival. The house is exactly like on the pictures, nicely renovated and cute, perfect for a couple. Colle di Val d'Elsa is indeed a perfect location to visit the main "attractions" of Tuscany.
Nice flat in the old city centre!
Petit appart sympa dans la vieille ville de Colle, au bord de la campagne toscane (un chien et un coq se font parfois entendre!). Impeccable pour rayonner dans les petits villages et villes alentours et très bon accueil des parents de Gabriele!
Super appartement dans la vieille ville du Colle di val D'elsa.
L'internet laisse a désirer, car dans l'appartement la réception n'est pas très bonne.
Hyper propre, avec une grande chambre et salle de bain.
Ville piétonnière donc stationnement gratuit à 1 minutes de marche de l'appartement. toujours de la place de stationnement.
Les parents de Gabriele sont très gentils et Gabriele également.
Heel mooi en prachtig ingericht appartement.Wij hadden door omstandigheden , Gabriele was met vakantie, contact met zijn ouders. Geweldige mensen en heel behulpzaam. Ondanks hun gebrekkig Engels en dat van ons, een warm welkom en goede tekst en uitleg. We waren met twee motoren en een van de motoren had wat olie nodig om de standaard te smeren , gevraagd en we werden geholpen door Dhr. Tozzi. Ook kwamen we 's avonds laat niet binnen omdat de beneden verhuurders de voordeur op slot hadden gedaan...geen probleem voor Dhr. Tozzi. Nieuwe handdoeken waren ook geen probleem. Alleen jammer dat we er te laat achter kwamen dat er op vrijdag morgen markt is in de (website hidden) met al een geweldige tijd gehad hier in Colle di Val D' Elsa, bedankt Familie Tozzi.
