Description from manager

The apartment is located in a large old rambling Tuscan farm house located on a hill among olive groves and vineyards only 18 km from the centre of Florence. It represents an ideal base to easily reach the most important artistic cities of Tuscany; Pisa, Siena, Lucca, S. Gimignano, Volterra, Vinci and of course Florence.

The central tower dates back to 1200 whilst the main body, all ochre walls and higgledy, piggledy roofs, has had more than three centuries to acquire the grace of old age.

Three years of labour went into the conversion of the rambling old farmhouse into 9 beautiful and spacious one and two-bedroom apartments. The apartments renovated throughout according to Tuscan tradition, have a clean, fresh country look but are immaculate rather than "rustic" as the attention to detail, both the aesthetic and the practical, is scrupulous. Hand some ornamental "Montelupo" plates, beamed ceilings and hand-wrought bedsteads complete the simple but exquisite picture and modern luxury is added in the form of satellite television and phones (outgoing calls only). With in walking distance is a charming typical restaurant where local specialties are served.

ACCOMMODATION - Apt. #1 (sleeps 4+2): ground floor apartments of 65 (square meters) with two bedrooms, 1 WC/shower, living room with kitchen units and double sofa bed, with independent heating. Kitchen units (very well equipped) with 4 burners and refrigerator, no oven. Private patio. On request we can provide a kettle, toaster, American coffee machine.

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL: The handsome old house stands on a hill among vines and olive trees with a sixteenth century villa nearby.

The swimming pool, 7 x 14 is 1.5 m deep at the shallow end and 1.8 m at the deep end, has an extensive sun terrace with a magnificent view of the Chianti vineyards.

There is a communal barbecue and traditional old wood oven for the baking of bread and pizzas.

Tennis table and mountain biking are available for a communal use, free of any charge.
