Hotel Terre di Casole is at Casole D’Elsa, a delightful medieval village in the heart of the upper Val d’Elsa valley, a borderland between Florence and Siena and once the site of historical clashes between the two areas. The Hotel and village overlook one of the most beautiful valleys in Tuscany, between Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni. The olives and vineyards of Chianti, Vernaccia and Terre di Casole accompany modern travellers along the time-honoured path of the Via Francigena (the St Francis pilgrim’s path), amidst stone farmhouses, medieval churches and the wild forests of Montagnola Senese.
