Casa al Sole lies on the gentle hills of central Tuscany surrounded by magnificent oak and chestnut forests. It is the right place if you are looking for peace and unspoiled nature. Thanks to its position in the heart of Tuscany, culturally highly interesting places such as Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano and Massa Marittima or the wonderful beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea near Follonica can be reached within less than one hour's drive. The area around Casa al Sole is a hiker's paradise and due to its many trails, very attractive for mountain bikers as well. In addition, there is a horse stable with horses and a swimming pool.
Our guests can choose from three different size apartments provided with all necessary comfort. Each flat is provided with all modern conveniences and has its own kitchen, bathroom, fireplace, living-dining room and one or several bedrooms. The setting comprises 5 Acres of land with an olive grove, forest and a stream.

The Casa al Sole is situated just one kilometer west of the 100-soul village of Travale on the southern side of a ridge belonging to a gentle mountain range called "Colline Metallifere". Its elevation is some 550 meters above sea level. This is the northern part of the Maremma, an extraordinary landscape stretching from the north of Lazio into the heart of Tuscany. It is the wild and unspoiled Tuscany. However, in less or slightly more than an hour's drive, proud strongholds of the Renaissance epoch can be reached: Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Massa Marittima. Remains of the Etruscan civilization can be found at Populonia, Vetulonia and Saturnia at a similar distance. The pine bordered beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea near Follonica are only 50 minutes away. And a trip to the wine growing Chianti region, to Radda, Greve or Castellina in Chianti, will not take any longer.
