For who loves to relax in the countryside among olive trees and vineyards, without having to renounce of cultural visits to the city centre. At Castello apartments you can experience the best of both worlds. Situated only 3 km from the centre of Florence, on the city-centre’s doorstep, this beautiful 18th Century Villa housing three charming apartments, is set on four acres of olive trees and has a private swimming pool. The Villa is situated in Castello, an area of great historical importance, on one of Florence's amazing hills. From the property you can enjoy panoramic views of Florence.

With three decades of experience in the Italian kitchen, Teresa will guide you in choosing and preparing fresh local ingredients for a three course meal.

Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything we could need or want. Francesco was a wonderful host and was very helpful when our sons were ill. There were beautiful walks near by. Great access to Florence via bus. The walk uphill was fine for my husband, myself , and two sons (ages 6 and 11). However, were quite difficult for my 76 year old mother in law. We underestimated how steep they were. It would not have been an issue for the rest of us.

We really recommend this location and would love to return.

Top Adresse

  • 5 of 5

Um Florenz und die Toskana kennenzulernen, ist dies die Top Adresse überhaupt. Über Florenz in einem Olivenhain gelegen mit einer tollen Aussicht über Florenz besonders bei Nacht, kann man sich hier nur wohlfühlen. Die Betten sind super und wir haben super gut geschlafen. Das Appartement ist in toskanischem Flair eingerichtet und erfüllt mit zwei Bädern wirklich alle Wünsche. Francesco ist ein ruhiger und liebenswerter Vermieter, der immer mit Rat und Tat zu jeder Zeit Hilfe bietet. Die Auffahrt zum Haus ist etwas tricky weil kurvenreich, eng und steil, aber spätestens nach dem weiten Mal meistert man das wie ein echter Florentiner.Eine Bushaltestelle ist in 10 Minuten zu erreichen und von hier fahren alle 15 Minuten Busse in das Stadtzentrum. Wir können die Casa Clementina und ihren Vermieter nur wärmstens empfehlen. Petra aus Paderborn

Casa Clementina....bravissima!

  • 5 of 5

Den pefekten Urlaub.....wir haben ihn hier erlebt.

Zwei Wochen durften wir die Gastfreundschaft Francescos und seiner Familie genießen, die wunderschöne Umgebung erkunden, die Stadt Florenz erobern und im Garten sowie am Pool der Villa relaxen.

Nach langer (13 Stunden) Fahrt wurden wir herzlich von Francesco empfangen, der für uns auch gleich den Pizzaservice bestellte und mit Wasser und einer Weinflasche zum Abend aushalf, da die Geschäfte am Sonntag geschlossen hatten. Die Wohnung (Casa Clementina) ein Traum und genau wie im Inserat beschrieben: liebevoll renovierte und gepflegte 85qm, genug Platz für zwei Erwachsene, einen vierzehnjährige Teenager und einem Beagle. Die Wände des Hauses sind dick, so dass sich die Zimmer nicht so schnell aufheizen können. Zudem sind in den Schlafzimmern Deckenventilatoren, die auf Stufe 2 so leise laufen, dass wir sie ohne Probleme über Nacht anlassen konnten. Überhaupt die Betten: so gar nicht typisch italienisch weich, sondern wunderbar fest und rückenfreundlich.

Die Ausstattung der Wohnung war hervoragend...mehr als genug Geschirr, Gläser und Besteck, hervoragende Elektrogeräte wie Waschmaschine, Mikrowelle und Kühlschrank mit Eisfach. Eine Flasche hauseigenes Olivenöl stand auch für uns bereit, unbedingt von der Möglichkeit Gebrauch machen, davon einen Vorrat mit nach Hause zu nehmen.

Durch die Lage auf den Hügeln weht hier immer ein leichter Wind, was Temperaturen über 30 Grad wie in unserem Fall sehr erträglich macht. Die Hügel (und die engen Gassen) haben allerdings den Nachteil, dass man für jedem Gang in die Stadt oder zum Einkaufen (ein Lidl ist in der Nähe) immer einen steilen Aufstieg vor sich hat. Um so schöner war dann das Relaxen im herrlich erfrischenden Pool mit Blick auf Florenz. Empfehlenswert sind auch die Kochkurse bei Tereza und die Abendessen auf der Terasse mit Blick über die Stadt...unbezahlbar. In keinem Restaurant habe ich je besser und schöner gegessen.

Überhaupt fühlten wir uns liebevoll aufgenommen....Francesco und seine Familie haben sich um jeden Gast und seine Anliegen gekümmert.

Zu Casa Clementina gehört ein kleines Gartenstück, von dort hat man einen tollen Blick über Florenz, man sieht auch den Flughafen, es gibt jedoch keinen Fluglärm. Auch der Hundeplatz in der Nähe ist nicht sonderlich laut.

Ein Auto ist hier hilfreich wenn man weitere Touren in die Umgebung plant oder zum Einkaufen. In die Stadt kommt man am besten mit dem Bus der bis zum Bahnhof fährt.

Castello is an area of great historical importance. Several Renaissance villas are located within walking distance from the apartment. The Villa Reale and Villa Petraia, both belonging to the Medici family, are famous for their architecture and as striking examples of Italian formal gardens. Villa Petraia was also home to king Vittorio Emanuele II, who summered in Castello when Florence became the capital of Italy in 1865. Further down the road from Villa Petraia, you’ll see Villa Bel Riposo. Carlo Lorenzi Collodi, the author of Pinocchio lived here while he was writing this popular story. All the characters in Pinocchio were drawn from real persons living in and around Castello. Castello is an area of great natural beauty. Narrow roads wind along ancient stone walls up the mountainside. Marvel at the rustic farm houses and splendid villas that sit amongst acres of silver-leafed olive trees. Guests are invited to stroll throughout the Castello apartment's olive grove.

Other Activities: Cooking classes, Dinners, Bikes are available
