Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Certaldo, Tuscany
This charming country cottage was recently converted from a traditional Tuscan barn. It is surrounded by a garden set in 5 hectares of olive grove and has a sun terrace and private pool affording breathtaking views over the Elsa valley, with San Gimignano in the distance. The owners produce their own extra-virgin olive oil.
The accommodation consists of two double bedrooms (15 m2 and 12 m2), a bathroom with shower and an open-plan living-dining area and kitchen (30 m2). The house is constructed and finished with traditional local materials and is tastefully decorated and furnished in a rustic style perfectly matched to the building. Solar panels provide constant hot water and underfloor heating when required.
There is ample parking on the property.

After spending a day, and night, in Lucca, we made our way down to the barn. Our journey was surprisingly pleasant and the directions provided to us by Charlie were spot on.
