Located close to Florence and the highway, Mezzola makes the perfect base for day trips around Tuscany. After a day of exploring the region, you’ll be glad to return to this restored stone farmhouse, whose spacious rooms are elegantly furnished with antiques. A quiet location on a wine-producing estate and a stone-lined pool invite you to relax and enjoy.
The villa’s living room and kitchen open to a large courtyard that’s set up for al fresco dining; prepare a meal on the outdoor barbecue. A broad green lawn and plenty of chairs surround the turquoise pool, while a shady seating area offers a cool spot to nap. For indoor entertainment, there’s a billiards room, satellite TV and Wi-Fi access.
Though the villa is a traditional stone farmhouse and furnished with antiques, sleek straight-lined white sofas and a striking white fireplace surround lend a modern feel to the living room. Gather around the large glass coffee table for a game, or curl up with a book in one of the armchairs in a corner. The modern kitchen has everything you’ll need from a juicer to a coffee maker.
Mezzola’s five bedrooms can accommodate up to ten guests. On the ground floor, there’s a bedroom with double bed and en-suite bathroom. Upstairs, one bedroom has a double bed, en-suite bathroom and separate dressing room with its own single bed. A third bedroom has two twin beds and an en-suite bathroom. The fourth and fifth bedrooms have, respectively, a double bed and a French bed, and shared bathrooms.
During your stay, take time to explore the surrounding estate, which produces Chianti wine, and the nearby village of Cerbaia. Then, hop in the car: you’re less than ten minutes’ drive from the main highway connecting Florence to Siena and Pisa. Florence itself is just 10 miles away, and both Siena and Pisa can be reached by car in under an hour.

SWIMMING POOLS - Swimming pools are not open all year. If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients’ use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.
HEATING - Heating is available at an additional charge of 50 Euro per day and must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.
WATER AND ELECTRICITY - Please note that most of the properties that we offer are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.
INTERNET CONNECTION - Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
LOW SLUNG CARS - VANS – MINIBUSES - Most of our houses are located in the countryside. Some of them can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways. We therefore advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us, at the time of booking, if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at one of our properties.
