Directions

Here we are

Please keep in mind that the property is located on one of the tussle of Tuscany and is 4 km from the nearest smaller (a Ristorante with a cheese – bread – ham counter) shopping establishment.

The nearest major shopping opportunity is in Castelfiorentino – the Coop – 10 km away from the house.

We therefore recommend that you make the purchase at least for the day of arrival on arrival, so that you do not have to make your way again.

Local attractions

The house stands alone on the hill in a privileged location. The old Frankenstrasse, the Via Francigena, which is now covered with gravel, passes the house.

Local wineries and olive farms can be reached quickly by car, with a hike a little slower.

The sea can be reached in an hour.

Detailed directions

Arrival description for arrival by your own car:

Take the motorway to Florence, exit Firenze/Impruneta, continue towards Siena to exit Poggibonsi-Nord, then continue towards San Gimignano.

If you, coming from San Gimignano in the direction of Gambassi Terme, to approx. 9 km turn right in a bend turn the forest path to San Vettore (sign) continue (please look at the speedometer) exactly 2.7 km straight until you see a Marienmarterl on the left.

Immediately afterwards you go up the mountain on the right and you are at your destination.

The forest path you have to drive for the last 2.7 km is the former pilgrim road “Francigena” (Frankenstrasse). It is a gravel road, but it is very easy to drive.

Arrival description for arrival by plane from Pisa:

At Pisa Airport, take the FiPiLi (Firenze-Pisa-Livorno) in the direction of Firenze to Empoli.

There departure and continue over Castelfiorentino, Gambassi Terme to Castagno Val d’Elsa (on some maps there is still the old name : Il Castagno).

Exactly 1 km behind Castagno Val d’Elsa in the direction of San Gimignano, it goes into the forest in a bend on the left (shield).

You will then be on a gravel road (the former Via Francigena), which you should drive exactly 2.7 km straight until you see a Marienmarterl on the left.

Immediately afterwards you go up the mountain on the right and you are at your destination.

From Castagno Val d’Elsa please follow our directions as a navigator cannot find the house as it is a private road.

(However, if you enter the widths and degrees of latitude above, it will take you all the way to the house)
