About the location
The historic town of Casole d'Elsa has breathtaking views of the rolling hills the Siena countryside has to offer. Surrounded by the fortress walls which are rich in history, Casole d'Elsa is a place where you can immerse yourself in culture, art, landscapes and nature.

Casole d'Elsa was once fought over between nearby Volterra and Siena. Due to this tumultuous past the town built two towers and a castle which date back to the 15th century, the castle is now home to the town government. 

Due to its hilltop position on a clear day you can see as far as the Apennines on the borders of Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, to the north east you can see the hills of Chianti and to the east you can see the hills of Montagnola behind which is Siena. When it comes to visiting the surrounding area, head off by car and visit San Gimignano and Volterra, only 30 minutes away. 
Transfer time
Car hire is recommended for this hotel. Casole d'Elsa is 68 miles from Pisa Airport and 48 miles from Florence Airport. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.
