Casa Elissa Sorry -Not available This year
Sleeps 2+2 ,2+1, 4+2 – Toscana – Sinalunga – Km 4 Q=8.9/10 (total quality= Q/10)
Where the fertile slopes of the Val di Chiana in the Province of Arezzo meet those in the Province of Siena is the ancient fortified town of Lucignano and a farm estate called “Agriturismo Casa Elissa”. This ancient farmhouse is divided into two apartments and has as a backdrop the ancient castles of Lucignano,
Scrofiano, Farnetella and Sinalunga. Once the scene of crude battles for control of the area between the forces of Siena and Arezzo
these towns today with their medieval buildings and streets are major tourist attractions.
The two apartments have a communal entrance, an internal staircase, and have managed to keep their ancient look.
They are furnished comfortably Tuscan style. A large fenced garden has covered carport, barbecue, garden furniture and a 6x12m pool.
…” Exactly the Tuscany we were aiming for; authentic, friendly, private and secluded, within a 30-45 minute driving distance from all the famous hill-towns as well as centered in true Tuscan scenery (close to major roads but doesn’t feel like it at all) – a most excellent value for money …”

Festivals in Toscana
Steeped in centuries of rich history stretching far back through medieval times to the Etruscan era
Tuscany has had plenty of time to establish some of the most enticing cultural festivals.
The region recently featured in the opening sequences of James Bond; Quantum of Solace in which a chase scene took place through the preserved streets of Sienna during the historical Palio. A festival of sport and local rivalries The Palio is a unique horse race that takes place in the piazza del publico in the centre of this medieval city.
The sights and sounds of competing contrada, municipal districts named after animals, is hard to beat. Each contrada parades through the streets in the days leading up to the race dressed in ornate historical clothing, banging drums and waving flags with awe-inspiring and well-rehearsed precision. On race days, July 2 and August 16, the city is filled to bursting with a party atmosphere and all the excitement of up close bareback horse riding.
For something a little less exhausting the ancient hilltop town of Montelpulciano hosts the Bravio delle Botti during the last week of August. This picturesque town is famed for its surrounding vineyards and has been hosting the wine festival since the 17th century. A week of different ceremonies and special wine tastings culminates in a barrel rolling contest through the narrow streets.
