About Violetta Buti

I have worked in tourism for ove 25 years: tour leader, guide in Florence and travel agent. My clients are usually individual travelers or small groups who are looking for tailor-made travels to Italy.

I live 12 km away from Florence, on top of a hill surrounded by olive trees with a stunning view of the dome of Florence.

I grow my vegetable garden and enjoy making jams.

I like hiking and attending exhibits and cinemas.

I rent part of the house where I live - There are separate entrances.

Violetta Buti purchased this chateau / country house in 1986

Why Violetta Buti chose Gavinana - Galluzzo

My parents bought it in 1986. I came to live here in 2012 because I fell in love with the view ... which is breathtaking.

I have always loved nature ... now I grow my vegetable garden, prepare my jams and harvest olives to produce my own extra virgin olive oil!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

It's unique for the view of countryside and of Florence. One lives out in the country yet at only 20 minutes' drive to the city.

There is also public transportation available. The bus stop is next to the property.

Excellent base for visiting Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We really really loved the beautifully decorated place, the view to the Florence Duomo, and of course, our host, Violetta, so knowledgeable and warm.

The place is not in the center of Florence, but if you want more than busy streets and tourists all around, it is a nice escape to the country side. What better place to think about all the nice things you've seen during the day than in between the olives, while looking at the Duomo.

Thank you again Violetta, we had a wonderful time!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Sebastian,dear Simona, thanks for bringing a family feeling and warmth to my house on New Year's Eve: I still smile at the nice conversation we had out in the garden in the middle of night in one of the coldest days of the year! Greetings to Simona's parents and lots of luck to you in the States!. Violetta

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent choice for any traveler looking to experience Italy outside the tourist traps. Violetta is a perfect host. The rental is a beautiful space with a great kitchen, bath with comfortable and spacious bedrooms. The view is breath-taking and the ride is easy to get to (if you follow Violetta's instructions).

If I return to the Florence area (which I hope to) I will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Italy Country House

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this rental. We have the dinner out in the backyard everyday and has a beautiful night light from the city. It is a country living within the city. We would like to rent this place again if we come back to Florence.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

If you want authentic, this is it! What a great drive from Florence, and the setting is beautiful. Even have views of the Duomo, and the lights of Florence at night. Beautiful. The apartment is nicely done, with modern appliances - but keeping the original character of the building. Violetta is a wonderful host. She arranged transportation for us, so we didn't have to rent a car. She also arranged a guide for our day in Florence. We had a great time. The only problem was the stay was too short. Definitely want to go back.

Most beautiful place in Florence

  • 5 of 5

It was like a fairy tail - so beautiful. Once we arrived at the house we never wanted to leave. The house has the most amazing view. The kitchen has every modern convenience. The owner of the home makes you feel so special and is so knowledgable on the area. We went for a wonderful hike right from the property. If I ever get back to this area I will only stay at this location. I can't say enough about this wonderful house!!
