A simple farmhouse

Casa di Duccio is a former farmhouse halfway between Florence and Siena. It belongs to a nearby 18th-century villa (Villa della Torre / also featured in our portfolio). Guests of Casa di Duccio have access to the conjointly used pool of the villa. To reach the villa, guests have to cross the road situated below the house, and then a path of about 100 m leads to the villa. We find Casa di Duccio is a wonderful place for a family!

The house has kept its original atmosfere. Some rooms have antique terracotta floors, others have wooden floors. Beautiful is the fireplace in the living room. Central heating is not provided. Close to the living room there is the kitchen. In front of the house there is a gravel forecourt, next to the house there is a terrace with shade roof equipped with a large table where 6 people can join for al fresco dining. Casa di Duccio accomodates 6 people, although 4 people would find it comfortably spacious.

What to do in the region?

A family-owned Tuscan restaurant with a nice patio, a small alimentari (corner store) and one of the oldest churches of the region are within walking distance (approx. 800 m). Bring a torch if you like to walk as the street to the restaurant is not illuminated. In the proximity of the villa there is a great variety of small trattorias and specialty restaurants - each night you can dine in a new place (we will provide you with tips for this region). 2 km away you can find a breakfast bar with grocery shop and butcher, a bakery, a pharmacy, an ATM and a post office; a big supermarket, all necessary shops and several restaurants are in Certaldo, 7 km away. Villa della Torre is a perfect starting point to explore Tuscany: situated in the heart of Chianti, it is a short drive to Florence and Siena.

The villa's location only 7 km from the railway station of Certaldo is a good base to visit Florence and Siena even without a car: You can park your car in Certaldo (parking next to the railway station) and take the train in both directions. During the week, trains to Florence/Siena and back go regularly (approx. every 1.5 or 2 hours). The train ride takes less than an hour. In Florence the train will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station "Santa Maria Novella" to the Cathedral or the Uffizi. In Siena the railway station is located approx. 3 km from centre, and you have to take a bus to reach the old town on top of the hill. One hour of driving takes you to the sea.

Additional amenities: Airport distance:Florence 40 km Pisa 80 km Rome 280 km, Coffee maker, Dog welcome, Electric dual hot plate, Electric kettle, Garden with covered terrace, Parking is approx. 100 m from the house at the nearby villa, but you can reach the square in front of the house with your car to load and unload your suitcases., Pool 6 x 14m / shared pool, Pool located approx. 150 m distant, Small oven
