Casa Staffa is a gracious cottage of 40 square meters (about 430 square feet)
for four people, with garden and access to a pool of 7 X 14 meters (23 X 46
feet).

It is situated within a 13-hectare (32-acre) farming estate, with woods and
lake, in which there live many animals, both domestic and wild.

It is 25 km (approximately 15 miles) from Siena and 80 km (50 miles) from
Florence. In the vicinity, you will find famous Tuscan towns including San
Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Castellina in Chianti and Volterra.

It has one bedroom with a double bed, a living room with a kitchenette and a
bathroom with shower. The living room is equipped with a divan bed that can
sleep two guests.

The house

Upon your arrival, you will see a simple stone building. In front of the
entrance you will find the garden and a large patio, with a flowerbed and an
olive tree in the middle.

You will be in a panoramic position, with a nice view of the Chianti hills.

From the patio you will be able to enter the lovely large living room, where
there is a kitchenette and a dining table. The kitchenette is equipped with a
four-burner cooker and a refrigerator.

You will find Casa Staffa a lovely place: it is furnished in a pleasant and
accurate way, in the welcoming style of the Tuscan countryside. The floors are
of terracotta tile, and the ceilings have exposed wooden beams.

The house is equipped with central heating, air conditioning, satellite
television. A shared swimming pool as well as parking are available.

The garden

In the garden you will find a paved area, shaded by trees and equipped with a
barbecue.

In the shade you will find a table with chairs.

This will be your favorite place to relax "al fresco" with a glass of wine, or
maybe to enjoy long dinners, in front of a 180-degree view of the gentle Tuscan
valleys and hills...

The swimming pool

A gracious downhill pathway, marked by terracotta and stone steps and lined with
flowering hedges, will lead you from the house to the pool, which is located in
the center of a green lawn.

Also from the pool, you will see before your eyes a vast panorama of Val D'Elsa
and of the gentle hills of the Chianti Senese.

The pool is spacious, 7 X 14 meters (about 23 X 46 feet), and around it you will
find umbrellas and sun-lounging chairs. It is open from June 1st to September
30th.

The pool is shared with the guests of two other small apartments.

The location

At Casa Staffa you will be within a farming estate of 13 hectares (about 32
acres), which produces Chianti wine. A large part of the terrain is covered with
an oak forest. The grounds are completely fenced.

You can take walks along the small paths that lead through the woods, where you
will often encounter domestic animals such as turkeys and geese, as well as wild
animals such as deer, hares and rabbits.

On the farm, you can also see (behind fences) horses, goats and chickens.

An avenue of well-established cypress trees will lead you towards a small lake
inhabited by waterfowl and by many goldfish.

This will be an exhilarating experience for your children!

The owners live on site. They will welcome you with enthusiasm, and will be
available, yet completely discreet, to attend to your every need.

Nearby tourist attractions

Staying at Casa Staffa you will find yourself in the heart of the Tuscan
countryside, 5 km (about 3 miles) from Casole D'Elsa, and 8 km (about 5 miles)
from Colle Val D'Elsa, a small city famous for producing crystal objects.

This land is filled with truly ancient history, as evident from the
archeological discoveries in the area, which extend back to the Neolithic,
Bronze and Iron ages, and to the Greek and Roman civilizations.

Colle Val D'Elsa is the nearest place where you will find shops, restaurants,
supermarkets, banks, tennis courts and golf courses, and bike rental facilities.

You will be within reach of the great "art cities": Siena, Florence, Pisa; and
nearby other famous tourist attractions such as San Gimignano, the city of 13
towers, Monteriggioni, the medieval town encircled by ancient walls, and
Volterra, where you will find Etruscan tombs.

Don't miss the opportunity to travel the Via Chiantigiana, which is the "wine
road" that cuts through the territory where Chianti wines are produced.

Along this road, you will see rows of grapevines to the right and left of you,
and hills topped with castles and villages, the evidence of two millennia of
history.

You can visit wineries, discover wonderful small restaurants, and above all
experience the friendliness of the local residents, which is truly part of the
fascination that Tuscany holds for the rest of the world…

If you enjoy hiking, you can trek through the Senese hills, or part of the via
Franchigena that crosses the Montagnola Senese, a protected hillside covered
with chestnut trees, where nature is uncontaminated.

The distances of some of these tourist attractions are as follows:

San Gimignano (15 km/9.3 miles), Volterra (20 km/12.5 miles), Monteriggioni (20
km/12.5 miles), Castellina in Chianti (23 km/14 miles), Siena (25 km/15.5
miles), Florence (50 km/31 miles) and Pisa (70 km/43 miles). Likewise, it is
easy to reach the sea and the Tyrrhenian coast, which is about 65 km (roughly 40
miles) away.

The closest airport is Florence.

Additional Notes:
The rental price includes: linens; towels; final cleaning; electricity. Available upon request:baby bed.

Local Costs: Available upon request, if desired:heating (when needed) EUR 15.00/day;air conditioning EUR 15.00/day.
