3 Madonne

Arrived at a nice 'agriturismo' close to Siena on Monday afternoon. 3 Madonne ( opened last June and the house with the apartments has just been restored. A bit in the middle of nowhere but in a great position for going on day trips to Siena, San Gimignano, Firenze, Montepulciano etc. The Toscana region site also has some info:

Went for a late evening walk in the old part of Colle di val d'Elsa. The newer, lower part, is nothing special but the old part on the hill is lovely. Loads of shops with crystal and a few displays with people making crystal and carving designs in the crystal. Makes sense as the town produces 90% of the crystal of Italy and accounts for 14% of the world production
