Casa alle Vacche

Casa alle Vacche is to be found in the most beautiful Tuscan setting surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and woodland and offers its visitors six invitingly warm and comfortable apartments.
Located in the centre of breathtaking Tuscany, situated on a hilltop, Casa alle Vacche is in an ideal spot, affording easy access to the discovery of the amazingly beautiful and interesting sights of the surrounding area. It is close to Certaldo, birth place of Boccaccio, a famous Italian writer, San Gimignano, with its unique medieval towered architecture, picturesque Volterra and of course not forgetting two of Italy’s major cities of art, Siena and Florence.

Thus Casa alle Vacche gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the abundance of art, culture, music and fabulous shopping, returning to the wonderful peace and tranquillity of Casa alle Vacche at the end of your exciting day.
There is however, something more, something quite intangible - immediately on your arrival you will actually feel that you are touching the very soul of Tuscany!
You will be able to experience for yourself the daily lives of the Tuscan people, appreciating the simplicity and warmth of the atmosphere, but, above all else meet an enthusiastic and friendly family of wine producers who live in perfect rhythm and harmony with the Tuscan soil.

The Ciappi family have been cultivating the land for three generations and are successful exporters of their exquisite quality wines, which you can savour whilst overlooking the vineyards from which they came!
You are able to observe and follow the different activities associated with the changing seasons of the countryside; the pruning of the vines, grape-picking etc. and so with each passing day becoming just that little more Tuscan in you heart.
