In the countryside; In the countryside
Casole is a little medieval village, in Tuscany, at an altitude of 420 m perched on top of a hillside, enjoying a dry, pleasantly temperate climate. Many Etruscan and Roman remains, witnessing a glorious past, await you.
The centre and the Casole courtyard form the “Piazza”, a central little square with its buildings dating from the Middle Ages, its narrow little streets, its boutiques selling typical products, all respecting the original character of the former village.
Tuscany, pleasing in all its aspects, presents a host of different faces : the aristocratic aspect of its villas, the bourgeois aspect of its streets, and the austerity in the silence of its countryside. At each successive visit, Tuscany, remaining always courteous and generous, passionate and romantic, seems to come a bit closer to fulfilling the need for re-birth, felt at the start of this new century. … A re-birth of contrasting colours, a desire of liberty and a breath of fresh air.
Welcome to Tuscany, this muse created by the Etruscans civilised by the Tuscans, consecrated by great artists, and continually loved by visitors.. with passion.
The wide-open countryside of Tuscany is an ideal playground for many outdoor activities:
