We rated La Ciabatta a 4 out of 5 only because we did not get to experience it in warmer weather so we could use the pool and yard area. We would also double check the dates with Sandra as she mixed up our arrival date. Luckily she had the place ready ahead of time so everything worked out. Besides those minor reasons, this place we will never forget.
La Ciabatta has panoramic breathtaking views and a true tuscan feel to the apartments that make you feel home immediately. It was nice to have the full kitchen and seperate areas to make it feel more like a temporary home. We would not advise driving here for the first time in the dark- we learned that the hard way as the dirt road feels about 3 miles long even though its about 1 kilometer. It is located at the very end of the road down a bit of a slope.
Sandra was very friendly and spoke pretty good English.
We recommend visiting and eating dinner for a night in Casole d'Elsa as it was one of most favorite suprises- this little town is charming and beautiful! We ate at the restaurant across from the church- pardon me for we cannot remember the name of it- but it was one of our best and favorite meals!
It was also nice to have this apartment when you've been driving around tuscany all day.
This place is a great location if you want to visit Volterra and San Gimignano. Both to which we strongly recommend visiting!
We would go back here in a heartbeat and try to go in the Spring or September and hope to someday return. This Podere was relaxing and a true tuscan secret we almost don't want to share!
