Overview

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!

1. MINIVAN RENTAL WITH MY BROTHER MARCO DRIVER.

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The property was exactly as described and extremely comfortable. With five longtime friends traveling together, the accommodations were perfect with five bedrooms and three baths. Enrico was our driver for the week and in addition to our plans, suggested several charming Italian villages and a great winery for us to visit! We saw all of the local sites traveling to Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa. And,of course, Florence. I highly recommend this property. It is quiet, charming, with beautiful scenery and the family is so friendly!

The property was awesome and far enough out of town that it was quiet and relaxing! Mina's cooking was delicious and definitely worthwhile to request if visiting. We used Marco and his van to go back and forth to town and a field trip to Siena one day. He took to us a fantastic winery in Chianti as well. Rico was a super help as well. Would definitely recommend this home for upcoming visitors.

Excellent accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5
My family shared this apartment with my brothers for several nights in July.
The apartment is very spacious, extremely clean and very quiet. It is very close to Florence and we went into the city every day. It was lovely to spend the evening in the hills after a day in the city.
The views of olive groves and vineyards were splendid. The owners were accommodating and helpful. They gave us a large box of vegetables and fruit from their garden. They provided a great selection of wines in the dining room at very reasonable prices.We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend highly.

Explore Tuscany from here

  • 5 of 5
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.
