About Claudia Pirazzi

We are a young couple from Rome, both working and recharging our batteries in this enchanting place. We love this place and would like to share the experience of living it with other persons who want to get away from city-stress but at the same time do not want to renounce on comfort, space, light and sun!

Claudia Pirazzi purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Claudia Pirazzi chose Val d'Elsa

If you see the photograph of the ruin, you will know. The romantic ruin of Caspar David Friedrich became our home! And nice persons stay below and are our neighbors. Kind and friendly persons.

What makes this apartment unique

It has the best views, is spacious and on one floor. No steps! Close to the parking, light,light,light! Mosquito screens everywhere, easy, comfortable and sophisticated at the same time. It is simply gorgeous.

feeling like at your tuscan home

  • 5 of 5

We did enjoy our holiday in the very nice Mauro's and Emy Terrace. The appartment is furnished with high attention to all details with a very cozy atmosphere giving you the impression to stay at your place in Tuscany. The view from the appartment is fantastic with the skyline of Volterra the beauty of the green tuscan hills. BBQ, fireplace and the wood stove gives you all the confort to cook but also to create the right armosphere. The little Borgo is very close to all major hold City and Village of Tuscany making the week to short to enjoy everything. Very nice, thanks for renting your holiday home!

Superb place and view

  • 4 of 5

I have spent 3 weeks at this place. You can easily access San Gimagnano and Volterra 10Km and also a huge grocery store at Certaldo. You can visit Chianti area as you want, perfectly situated between Firenze and Sienna. When you're back from the visit you can enjoy the calm in this village (only 6 houses) with a huge pool and a view of volterra and the country side of Toscana.

First time in Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful property , well equipped and tastefully furnished. Just as advertised. The location a little remote for us, would have liked a shop or bar within walking distance but that is a matter of preference. Otherwise a really lovel and relaxing week to recharge the batteries.

Fantastisk sted, kun få km fra San Gimignano. Rolige omgivelser med en flot udsigt, især fra den fælles store swimmingpool. Dejligt rustikt autentisk stenhus med gennemført indretning i gammel stil, men med alle fornødne bekvemmeligheder,- der også fungerede. Kan varmt anbefales. Der er nogle km til nærmeste restaurant, og måske 8-10 km til nærmeste indkøbssted. Er man til fest og larm, er det ikke stedet. Der ligger ca 5-6 huse i samme stil, og da vi var der, var enkelte af disse huse også udlejet, typisk til børnefamilier. Det gav ingen problemer af nogen art. Ca 15 km til Certaldo, hvorfra der er hyppige togafgange til Firenze (ca 1 times kørsel) og Siena. Ca 15 km til den meget smukke middelalderby Volterra, der ligger højt med en formidabel udsigt.
