Property Description

Podere Elsa, whose name comes from the River Elsa which flows through the valley, was the last house of a large farm and originally only consisted of a single “Tower”, built explicitly as a look out for approaching strangers. Over the years the building was enlarged several times and in fact the various periods of construction are easy to see. In 1992 the whole building was completely renovated and divided into 5 apartments, each equipped with all the modern comforts (Satellite-TV, Internet access). It takes less than an hour by train or car to the major historic centres: Florence, Siena, Volterra, Lucca and Pisa.
