This delightful studio apartment (380 ft2 / 35 m2) can be your home away from home while you visit Florence and Tuscany. Enjoy fascinating days of exploration from a peaceful, rural home base like this.
Located only a 20-minute drive from Florence's historic center, you can also take advantage of free parking in nearby Bagno a Ripoli and use the convenient bus system to tour the city.
The flat is attached to a typical Tuscan 'casa colonica' (country farmhouse) occupied by the owners and provides a tranquil, private place to recover after a day of touring. The house is located on a hillside, with breath-taking views of the city of Florence and the hills surrounding Florence. The property consists of approximately nine acres (fenced) in an area protected from development and is planted in olive and fruit trees and grapevines.
Perfect for independent travelers with a car, other cities of interest within 60 miles (96 km) include Siena (40 mi/64 km), Pisa (57 mi/91 km), San Gimignano (35 mi/44 km), Lucca (52 mi/83 km), Arezzo (43 mi/69 km), Cortona (59 mi/94 km) and Volterra (50 mi/80 km). The Chianti wine region is also easily visited by car.
The areas highlighted in the ad (restaurant Donnini, the church of San Lorenzo, etc.) are much closer to what was written by the program, all are in Bagno a Ripoli, but not exactly in the village.
The apartment overlooks the beautiful Tuscan countryside. It is composed of a living room with sofa, a kitchen equipped with cook top, refrigerator, double sink and microwave, a bathroom with sink, shower, toilet and bidet, a loft with sleeping area. The very pretty and romantic double bedroom is reached via an internal wooden staircase.
In the apartment you can surf the internet (WiFi available).
The large terrace reserved for your exclusive use can be used for sunbathing, dining 'al fresco', reading and watching the sunsets as you gaze upon the Duomo and the olive groves below.
A well-marked hiking trail at the end of the driveway includes a section of the ancient Roman road from Bologna to Rome via Florence. Additional trails cover nearby hills and offer panoramic vistas of the area.
Gated access provides security for you, your car and possessions. Reserved parking. Come and go as you please.
Access to the apartment includes approximately one-third mile (500 meters) of graveled road. A car is strongly suggested.

'Fantastic setting, this was the perfect location for us to have a serene retreat high above Florence after a day in the busy city.
If the wonderful view, solitude and true Tuscany atmosphere is a high priority for you this is exactly the right place to go to!'
I could ask you a favor: if I went away for a few days, to give kibble and water to my old and very sweet dog.
