There is plenty of space for a Tuscan meal inside, or with the warm weather even a BBQ outside in the private garden is just the right ending to a day of touring the nearby cities.
Bring home all your treats from the local markets, you latest wine tasting and a fun trip to the nearby supermarket and create an Italian feast for your tastebuds.

The holiday rental has one double bedroom and comes complete with all necessary linens.

There is so much to discover in the area that you only need to drive a short distance in any direction to be amazed and awed by the picturesque scenes.
San Gimignano, to the east, is a great stop with its iconic towers, small cobbled stone streets and lots of great restaurants. Volterra is to the west, where you will find soft rolling hills, sunflowers fields and lovely alabaster artwork. Tuscany invites you to explore the little towns like Certaldo, set on a hilltop that commands far reaching views or over towards Chianti and San Casciano, small town atmosphere with lots of shopping boutiques and cafes.

Siena, which makes up part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, invites you to climb to the top of the Tower of Mangia and marvel over the Duomo marble floors.

Pietro and Melania, Owners of Il Corbezzolo
My name is Melania. My father, Pietro, is the owner of “Il Corbezzolo Casa Vacanze.” He is a building contractor and had an active role in the restoration of this little hamlet called Borgo Mummialla. I love telling the story of how it all came together. My job is to help him with the guests, checking on the reservations always trying to answer all of your questions fully and quickly. We are both on the property when you arrive to assist you in anyway possible, answering questions about the house and the surrounding area.
We hope you that you feel relaxed and comfortable so you have an unforgettable vacation in Tuscany.
