About The Experience

So, you want to be located in a charming small town in Tuscany where you can have your morning cappuccino along with the locals? Look no further - this is the place for you! This apartment, located right in the historic center of the town is only 200 meters from the complex with the shared large pool overlooking the countryside. Stay here with your family or friends... you won't want to leave!

Location Description

The property is located in the town of Barberino Val d'Elsa where there are shops, restaurants, a great pizzeria, a market, a bank, and a post office. Dating back to the Middle Ages, Barberino Val d'Elsa marks the midway point between Siena and Florence. The village has an ancient church, castle, chapel, and beautiful views of the olive groves and vineyards that make up much of the Chianti Classico region. San Gimignano, a town you can see from the farmhouse, is a great place to go for a day trip. As one of the most visited towns in Tuscany, it is known for its rich history dating back to the Etruscan times. It is full of life and things to do. Popular attractions include the famous towers, the 12th century Duomo, the People's Palace, and several museums dedicated to artwork and archaeology. There are also plenty of wine tasting tours, art galleries, shops, and delicious restaurants. Numerous celebrations and gatherings are held every year including a music festival featuring theater, ballet, and opera performances, and a Medieval Harvest festival where the people of San Gimignano dress up as knights, play medieval games, and have tournaments. Of course, you'll also want to visit Florence and Siena during your trip and a train station in Certaldo, which is only 15 minutes away from the property, can get you there easily and conveniently.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
We had a amazing time in Tuscany and loved our little villa!
Enjoyed Most:
The view was stunning. It was super quiet and charming and perfectly located with a lovely patio and comfortable king size bed.
Enjoyed Least:
It was a bit tricky to find at night and the living area of was part of kitchen--but these are only very minor, so just a suggestion for the host. We would totally stay there again and loved it!
Surrounding Area:
Tuscany has so much to offer, truffles, wine, culture, nature and very peaceful place.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Absolutely! Barberino Val D'Elsa is a friendly, clean and well preserved medieval town. Great restaurants and wineries at your doorstep. It was like a dream type of destination for our private little wedding!
Tips or Restaurants:
Good to have a data plan. Driving is fun there, make sure you have a GPS.
Check In Out:
It was simple, Sonia was great.

Overall:
Lovely ground-floor apartment in the center of a charming town. Mostly quiet, nice backyard that needed a key to enter (felt very safe). No actual living room but the kitchen and garden served as lovely places to sit.
Enjoyed Most:
Location. Easy to find, with our own entrance.
Enjoyed Least:
No WiFi in the apartment, only at the office where the laundry and pool and parking lot were. We had a prepaid SIM card from TIM (Italian provider) that made it easier for us. When others wanted to use the Internet, I turned on my WiFi hotspot.
Surrounding Area:
There happened to be a flowers and wine festival while we were there, which was a wonderful way to experience the area.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Barberino Val D'elsa--you are inside the town.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring a clothesline - we had no where to dry the clothing. The coffee maker was a Moka coffee pot which is heated over the stove top--neat experience but we needed to use YouTube to learn how to use it!
Directions:
Google Maps, Bing maps, and Apple maps all did a great job finding it. My friend downloaded all Italy Street maps using her Windows phone, and did a great job navigating without using cell phone data!
Check In Out:
Nice experience. My first time staying in a Tuscan town and it was a wonderful experience. Staying in a central location with easy access to the autostrada made driving and navigating very easy.

Overall:
The location was excellent and good for day trips around the area. Several good local restaurants and eateries. Within one hours drive we could be in Volterra, Greve, Siena, etc.
Enjoyed Most:
It was very quaint and right in the small village of Barberino Val D'Elsa. Could walk for groceries, Internet cafe, restaurants.
Enjoyed Least:
Really no comfortable sitting area. The kitchen and sitting area were combined so you basically sat at the kitchen table or on a sofa by the table.
Surrounding Area:
The scenery, vineyards and other towns and small cities. Siena within a short drive.
Nearby Events or Locales:
This property is right in the old town.
Tips or Restaurants:
Definitely need a car to enjoy the area. The local transportation would be inconvenient. We went just up the street to the local estate winery "Pasolini". Massimo gave us a tour of their cellars which run under the town and we had the had tastings of their vintages, including grappa.
Check In Out:
We called ahead on our cell and ultimately got reception who met with us. We were staying up the road from the main property so dropped off bags and went back to the main area to park.
