Great location and friendly, sweet hostess. Antonella was as nice as can be. You're greeted with a big smile and yummy pastries. Restaurants and bakery nearby. Great view from balcony. Well worth the price, you won't regret staying at Dietro Le Mura.

This apartment in this village suited us perfectly. We picked up a rental car in Pisa and used the apartment as our base to do day trips to Florence and other Tuscan villages. Antonella was the ultimate host trying to appease our every wish and she gave us the ultimate Tuscan experience. The apartment was superbly clean, beautiful big fluffy, scented towels and 2 big bedrooms with comfy beds and their own bathrooms. We could not have asked for anything better!

Antonella si è dimostrata discreta, non invadente ma molto cordiale e disponibile. Al nostro ingresso abbiamo trovato un appartamento molto pulito, ordinato, ben servito di tutto ciò che può servire (2 phon, 3 ventilatori, TV, alimenti di prima necessità, detersivi, pentole e stoviglie in quantità più che adeguata,...). Ci ha accolto con un vassoio di pasticcini e una bottiglia di Chianti. L'ubicazione è molto comoda. L'appartamento è vicino a una panetteria, un fruttivendolo, una macelleria, bar e alcuni ristoranti. Il parcheggio, come penso in tutti i borghi toscani, è a qualche minuto a piedi. C'è comunque la possibilità di scaricare le valigie davanti alla porta d'ingresso (sosta concessa - 15 minuti).

Antonella is a great host and we had an absolutely amazing time at her apartment. The view from the balcony is even better than in the pictures. Everything was clean and tidy. Colle di Val D'elsa is a very good spot for daytrips in all directions. We went to Cinque Terre, Siena, Florence, Cecina, Carrara amongst others. There's a lot of wine yards and olive gardens in the area too. Everything you might need (freshly baked bread, cheese, fruits, vegetables, wine etc. etc. is more or less next door in specialized tiny shops. Overall, the experience is authentic and I would absolutely recommend staying in Tuscany in general, and especially at Antonella's. : )

We had an incredible time at Antonella's Casa Vacanze! The flat was gorgeous, comfortable, clean and in the perfect location. Antonella was a wonderful host - she had wine and pastries for us when we arrived and was available throughout the week for questions. We were quite a group - 4 adults and 3 small children under age 3, but the flat was perfect for our needs. Colle di Val D'Elsa is a best-kept secret. Often tourists come by for just a few hours, but they miss out on the authentic Tuscan experience the old town provides. In a space of a week, we got to know many townspeople. Piazza Caterina, just a few steps away, is always alive with people, including musical performances some evenings. We highly recommend the town and Antonella's flat to anyone seeking a relaxing Italian holiday.

Host was very friendly and helpful for checkin. The pro's are that for the price this place is a great place to explore Tuscany... We rented a car from Florence and arrived within the hour, then used it as a place to explore many other cities and villages around... only disadvantages were that the wifi really had some issues, sometimes would not work at all and sometimes off and on... you always had to be in the living room as it would not work from the bedroom. Host was so friendly and helpful however limited English.

Antonella is a lovely, friendly and extremely hospitable host. The apartment is beautifully renovated, with two big bedrooms and bathrooms, a very good kitchen and a fabulous view from the balcony off the kitchen. Antonella was so helpful and generous with us. The quality of the sheets and towels, and the lovely little bathroom packages added a total touch of luxury. The location is perfect for visits to surrounding towns and the old town of Colle val d'Elsa is very charming. The shops within a few metres of the apartment include a butcher, wine, cheese, bread and the pastry shop is possibly the best I have seen in Italy. I would recommend staying here as your central location to sight seeing in Tuscany. This is a much more beautiful town than Volterra and with free parking available so close to the apartment, a more comfortable location that San Gimignano. Antonella's apartment is absolutely wonderful! Ten out of Ten!! My only complaint is we only stayed 3 nights and I would love to have stayed longer.
