Overview

Overview

Cercina Villa Rental Photos and Description

The villa is located near the top of a ravishing Tuscan hill, about 500 mt high in the Florence country and it is world famous for producing wine and olive oil.

Is equipped with a private swimming pool (10 x 5 metres) fully equipped with night-time illumination.

Only 20 meters from the Villa there is our dependance 'Il Glicine'. This structure is inclusive of air-contioning and composed by a room with two extra beds, a little kitchen and a bathroom with shower. From the charming terrace, you can enjoy the wonderful panorama of the Florence valley.

Dependance 'Glicine' can be rented for 450€ per week.

As you walk up the street leading to the villa, you can run with the glance at an always wider landscape of the Tuscan country.

This Tuscan valley owns an enchanting millennial history; still nowadays you can appreciate forests broken by the ancient hemmed-in stone walls villages and the old grapevine and olive cultivated farms.

The silvery green gentle foliage of the olive groves and the dense green of the wood trees highlight the villa’s lawns.

All around the villa, air is pure and clear, it is quiet and peaceful.

If you are fond of gastronomic tourism and you are a wine lover it’s possible to choose among trattorias, little restaurants or glamourous ones, reachable from the villa within twenty minutes. You can visit farms or wineries where you can buy wine, oil and other local products. The kind owners of Villa Ginestra will arrange for you suggestions and directions along the site.

In spring and summer you can have dinner or lunch taking advantage of the swimming pool area. Walking out straight from the villa, you can have long promenades dipped into the enchanting Tuscan country.

If you love country and trekking you can make excursions in the Chianti paths and in the near little and charming villages.

Culture

FLORENCE

Originally established as roman settlement the city became the centre of medieval European trade. Under the heel of the Medici family, it was the cradle of Renaissance. Florence was capital in the Kingdom of Italy and it is still one of the most charming town in the world.

SIENA

The city lies in the hearth of Tuscany amidst the Chianti’s hills. It is one of the best preserved medieval architectural estate and its districts are still retained.

In July the traditional Palio takes place.

A NATURE RESERVE

PARCO DI CERCINA

The park is located in the north of Florence, on the slopes of Monte Morello, and preserves the great beauty of the Tuscan hills. Olive groves, churches and rural farms prove the ancient culture that spreads from Calenzano to Fiesole.

Cousine and typical products

The area of “Parco di Cercina” hills is covered in the cultivation of vineyards and olive trees.

Vacationing in this place allows you to enjoy a relaxing holiday surrounded by nature. Here there is a wide range of typical restaurants where you can taste Tuscan cuisine based on meat and fish. Great Chianti wines produced in this area will provide that extra special touch.

Nearby there aren’t any other houses so your glance will be able to run free and enjoy a wide view made of far hills and the Florence’s valley.

It will seem to have a walk getting through the time and to have the chance to feel a different style holiday.

Villa Ginestra is located in a land full of art, culture and breathtaking views.

Great family stay!

  • 5 of 5
We brought our 3 young kids with us to the villa and had a fabulous time. My kids loved having their own house and yard to play in at the end of the day. And they especially loved petting the owners' dogs. The owners were excellent, very helpful with anything and everything. They even put out a box of toys for my kids. It was a fabulous Italian experience!

Stunning property and wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5
This is truly one remarkable place to stay.
The host Leonardo was very gracious and kind in our many questions about
the area.
It is very clean, grounds were immaculate, as well as the Villa.
I would recommend getting a rental car so you can easily get supplies, visit Florence or tour the rural area's. It's a little far to the stores or nearest restaurant's. It's a good hike if you do it (we did multiple times by foot)
It's very private, calm, and very safe.
The view is hard to beat, and the pool is perfect for those hot Tuscan nights.
Thank you Leonardo and Paolo for such a perfect Holiday, we will see you again.
