HOUSE ON FLORENCE HILLS - 4 MILES AWAY FROM DOWNTOWN FLORENCE!

Campo di Marte House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Located atop the hill of the ancient Certosa abbey of Florence, only 4 miles away from the ancient walls of downtown Florence, the Rustico della Certosa house is the ideal lodging for those who wish to visit the city during the day, and relax by night. Immersed in the green countryside of Florence, the Rustico della Certosa house is located by the Certosa highway exit, 5 minutes away, in a strategic position to visit the wonderful hills of Tuscany!

During the day, it is possible to visit the countless works of art of Florence, but also to organize short day-trips in the luxuriant Chianti countryside, with the Rustico being in the Chianti Putto region. You can enjoy Greve in Chianti, also known as the pearl of Chianti, only 30 minutes away, the beautiful San Gimignano about 35 minutes away, the famous town of Siena about 40 minutes away Sant'Andera in Percussina with the Niccolo' Machiavelli museum-house only 5 minutes away (all distances are calculated based on car transportation).

It's very easy to reach the historic city centre of Florence from our property: infact the nearest bus stop is 2Kms away for the property. In front of the bus stop there is a big FREE parking, where you can park the car and catch the bus for the historic city centre. The bus takes 10-15 minutes to reach the Duomo of Florence.

For the past few centuries, the Rustico della Certosa was a simple building, created to welcome peasants working on the surrounding hills. During the 2000's, the building was completely renovated, paying close attention not to remove or alter those unique elements that remind it's rustic past, that is, the big fireplace in the middle of the dining room, the ancient exposed wood beams, and the original cotto floors from Impruneta.

The 5 bedrooms are tastefully furnished, inspired by the major historic events of the surrounding areas. There are a fully equipped kitchen, a big dining room and a big living room. In the dining room there is also a cupboard furnished by all necessary to testing the Italian wine (Professional testing glasses, decanter, information about the most famous Tuscany wine cellars).

The garden, in the spring and summer months, is a true oasis, where you can relax, maybe read a book and enjoy a cocktail. If the sun is hitting really hard, you can seek refuge under the big umbrella and nap on the lawn chairs available for you.

ONLY 400 METRES AWAY FROM THE PROPERTY THERE IS A WODERFULL POOL IMMERSED IN THE TUSCANY COUNTRYSIDE: DAILY TICKET 5 EUROS!

This is a fantastic place. We were a party of seven adults. I would recommend anyone to have at least one dinner cooked by 'mama'. Superb. Catering easy in a well equipped kitchen. Loads of space inside and out to roam around.
There is a vineyard within walking distance where a very good box of wine costs only a few euros - why did we discover it on our last day?!
If you come by car, then you can explore most of the major Tuscan attractions within one hour's drive. There is a good bus service into the centre of Florence - no cars allowed in the historic bits.
The Berni family will be able to help with local knowledge.
I would love to come again, as would my family, and can recommend it very highly.

Seven of us stayed here in October and received great hospitality and accomodations. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped. Somehow we missed that the property was on the second floor, but that was not an issue for us. The location is excellent as well, close to all of the stops we wanted to make. Many thanks for all of the assistance.

We were a party of 7 adults and 2 babies and we had a great time!

Location- amazing views! up on the mountain, quiet but not too far, it is about 15-20 minutes from Florence by car (must have a car though). The big grocery store is about 15 minutes drive as well. In the town just below there is a small grocery store but if you need to feed so many people you will have to find the bigger one:)

Place itself- beautiful stone house with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. They supplied baby beds and feeding chairs as well which was great. The kitchen is spacious and equipped with all kitchen utensils (and dishwasher!!) to support our big party. Big dining room that comfortably fit all of us. They have a small wine cabinet you could get dinner wine and pay at checkout which was a nice touch.
We used the outside BBQ one night (they supplied coals) and ate inside cause it was too cold.
The living room is also comfortable, comfortable sofas.We did not use the TV but its there. Good internet connection.
Everything was very clean, including bathrooms! Clean and comfortable linens and mattresses.
Each room has a portable air condition unit (ruins the charm a little but necessary) but we had a good weather (not too cold and not to warm) so we did not get a chance to use them except for once.
It is the upstairs apartment so be aware if you are traveling with people with disabilities.
Check-in/out was easy.

We saw the downstairs unit which looked charming as well is you are a small party.

A beautiful and pricewise property

This place is well-kept by its very friendly owners, situated about 7 km south of Florence center. The garden is pretty and large. The rooms are nice and large also, a few need fly nets on the windows however. Eventhough they do not mention on their web page, they have wireless internet access which needs a little bit more power. If you will order a menu of mamma (Mina) don't miss Francesina.
Ideal vacation house for a group of 6-10.
La Certosa restaurant nearby is quite good, not expensive and although seems to be serving large groups, it keeps the qualty above average. The best ice cream was in the village of Stia, about 50 km east.

A slice of Tuscany

My family recently spent a week in this farm house. It proved to be everything we thought it would be and more. The pictures of the farm house are accurate but do not reveal the true beauty of the house or the setting. The house was clean, well maintenained and had pleanty of room both inside and out, to experience the true Tuscan life style. The owner was extreamly helpful and went above and beyond to make our visit memorable. He provided insights into the local area as well as listing the best places to visit, the best places to shop and of course, the best places to eat. We thouroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend this property to anyone including friends and relations. There is even a small play ground behind the house and my grandson used it everyday. The house has charm and warmth. This was our first trip to Italy and we fell in love with the country side and the culture. Already we are planning to return and just like this time we would want to have this farm house as our base.
