Enjoying beautiful views of the rolling green hills and the towers of the city, The characteristic Le Volte apartment at Il Casolare lies in splendid countryside just over 3km from the medieval town of San Gimignano. Composed of two traditional Tuscan farmhouses and a cottage, Il Casolare is divided into seven apartments including the owner's apartment, Le Volte described here, and No 28 Il Granaio, all recently restored to a high standard to offer very comfortable accommodation. Surrounded by vineyards, Il Casolare has a fully enclosed garden filled with plants and flowers where there is also a swimming pool (14m x 6m) enjoying a magnificent panorama of the countryside. A barbecue and a utility room with washing machine are available for communal use and parking is conveniently situated in the grounds of Il Casolare. The owner and his family, who are present most of the time, are friendly and helpful whilst not intruding on your privacy. Il Casolare is immersed in beautiful countryside yet close to San Gimignano, and within walking distance of the historic Romanesque Church of Cellole and its stately cypress trees. Only 20 minutes drive away are the Castelfalfi country club with its splendid golf course and San Vivaldo where you will find in the woods ‘Jerusalem in Tuscany’ a medieval reproduction of the sanctuaries of Jerusalem.

Our third time in "Le Volte"
It was our third time in "Le Volte" and the reason we're always going back is because it feels like home! The view is wonderfull, the appartments are not luxurus but clean and the property well-kept. The swimming pool is wonderfull although the sunbeds are not that comftable and are ready to be replaced. The hosts are most friendly and kind. They are very helpfull to everyone. The property is near to the city of San Gimignano (2,5km) so that we can get there even in the evenings to have a nice gelato!
As for the situation, you can easily get to a lot of nice cities and villages to visite. Nothing is really far away. So to us this is a place in Tuscany "to be" where you can enjoy the beautifull views and the real tuscan hospitality. Food is wonderfull and la dolce vita as well! The services of La Bella Toscana are great, there is nothing negatif to tell.
This was an absolutely wonderful place to stay. We were here for the first week of our honeymoon, and found it to be in a beatiful, peaceful location with very friendly owners. The apartment was lovely, clean and met expectations and the gardens and pool were beautifully maintained. We have already recommended this place to family and friends.
The booking process with Bella Toscana was simple and the information provided was helpful and clear. I would definitely book a holiday with Bella Toscana again, and we will definitely be back to Le Volte.
A friendly and warm welcome from geniun people
A friendly and warm welcome from geniun tuscan people. The room was nice and clean and had all comfort, simple but that's all you need up there. The garden was well kept and the swimming pool clean. The longchairs could have been more comfortable and the umbrellas more stable and bigger as they fell over when there was to much wind. The location of "Le Volte" is perfect with a wonderfull view of San Gimignano as well during the day as at night. It is peacefull and you feel "at home". San Gimignano is amazing and lies not to far away from big cities like Sienna, Pizza and Firenze if you want to visit them. You have a supermarket just outside the city walls where you can buy almost everything. We fell in love with Tuscany and in particular with San Gimignano where you should go to "le vecchia mura" to have a wonderfull diner with a view to die for. Don't forget to make a reservation because it's very busy. "Le Volte" is a good "price-quality" vacation. Thank you!
Our holiday at Le Volte was fabulous. The Italian owners were very welcoming, they gave us a bottle of red wine on arrival, which was a lovely gesture. They live on site and keep the grounds well maintained. The villa was well equipped for our stay, it was too late in the season for a dip in the pool, even though it did look very clean and inviting. It is situated in a peaceful area just outside San Gimignano. We were able walk to the town in 30/45 minutes. Beautiful countryside, within easy reach of many of the other Tuscany cities by bus and train. We would highly recommend this villa.
