The Borgo Al Cerro Residence provides welcoming accommodation in Casole d'Elsa, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, conveniently located near Siena, Chianti and Volterra and its metalliferous hills.
A careful restoration has restored the old farmhouse to its former glory; the building's history is not easy to chart but the presence of fortifications in the old walls means it could date back to the old customs road that once led to Casole d'Elsa.
The Residence offers comfortable, private, simply decorated accommodation with characteristic wooden beamed ceilings and stone floors.
Set in the heart of the Tuscany region, the residence is an excellent base from which to visit the nearby artistic cities and characteristic medieval villages.
Borgo Al Cerro has an outdoor hydromassage swimming pool, a well equipped sun terrace and a fitness room. Guests can also unwind with a choice of relaxing massages and beauty treatments.
Among the numerous free services offered by the hotel are a children's park, high chairs, camping beds and sheets, pushchairs, table tennis, table football and mountain bike hire.
Guests also have free use of a private car park and Wi-Fi Internet access which is available in all the public areas, the private gardens and some of the guest rooms.
A nearby restaurant offers special rates to hotel guests and serves traditional local cuisine featuring simple dishes prepared with fresh produce.
Pets are welcome at Borgo Al Cerro in Casole d'Elsa.

During the Summer guests can only book week long stays from Saturday to Saturday.
