Fantastic stay!

The property was in a magnificent location in the middle of an olive grove on the hills above Florence. If you went on a little walk on the path behind the house you could actually see Florence in the distance. It was beautiful and quiet while being very close to the center of Florence.
The house itself was great with 3 different patio areas, 2 shaded and one in full sun. The kitchen was fully equipped and we were greeted with a complimentary basket of fruit, which was a very nice touch.
The owners were very friendly and helpful too.
We will definitely come back to this property when we return to Florence!

Superb Tuscany Experience

My wife and I rented this Restored Barn near Florence in May, 2013. The word restored is an understatement. This place is "beautifully restored" and it is charming and very comfortable. The cooking facilities are more than adequate and we were able to make many meals here. There is a comfortable patio area in the olive garden area that we enjoyed sitting in. It was a great place to read and enjoy the outdoors. This rental is near the city of Florence and easy to get into the city by bus or car. The owners, Paolo and Marta were extremely friendly and helpful. They both speak English very well and helped us with connections in Florence and great ideas for our touring of all of Tuscany. It is very easy to also get to other cities such as Pisa, Siena and many other cities and areas of the wine region of Chianti. By the way, the bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and I know this because my wife can be very selective about what a good bed is. She slept very well. In short, we loved this place and if (or when) we would return to Tuscany we would first check out to see if this place was available. We recommend it for cleanliness, for the quiet of the countryside, for the very helpful hosts and the ability to have a charming place to relax. I could go on and on but will just say this. Enjoy this charming place. It will soon feel like home!

Gran vacación en Toscana

Nos alojamos en ésta casita por dos semanas. No podemos creer que fuimos tan afortunados en encontrar tan cómodo lugar. Los dueños, Marta y Paolo, quienes viven en la casa grande, son una pareja muy servicial y ademas muy agradable.
La casita es muy sencilla pero muy cómoda. Tiene todo lo necesario. Las sabanas y toallas muy limpias y frescas y la cocina equipada con todo lo necesario.
Los alrededores son bellisimos y apacibles. Recomendamos alquilar un auto que se puede dejar aparcado en el pueblo (Bagno a Ripoli) y de allí tomar el autobus para Florencia ( 20 minutos).No dudamos ni un minuto en recomendar éste sitio para unas vacaciones inolvidables.

Nous avons séjourné pour la troisième fois dans la grange aménagée de Marta et Paolo à Bagno a Ripoli, et ce durant trois semaines.
Et nous ne pouvons que confirmer nos deux premières appréciations rédigées les années précédentes et visibles sur le site: toujours aussi bien !
Logement bien situé pour les visites et le farniente, location très bien équipée et de charme, calme sans être isolé, propriétaires charmants, attentionnés et discrets.
La description sur le site est totalement fidèle à la réalité. Avec que de bonnes surprises!
Nous ne pouvons que chaudement recommander une fois de plus !!!

Comfortable home in an idyllic location

We (four adults and one eleven month old baby) spent a week at this house at the end of May 2011. We were grateful for the previous reviews which encouraged us to book this house and which accurately describe it and so we felt we should also write a review ourselves. We feel that the photos on this website don't quite do the house justice, particularly those of the bathrooms, it is really a lovely and comfortable home.

While it was fairly cosy with all five of us staying at the house, it was fine for the week. The house is well-equipped and we enjoyed cooking there in the evenings and eating in the garden. The house is in a rural and private location, yet it is easy to do daytrips to Florence, Siena etc. The owners were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

If you do have children staying with you, as always you will need to watch them and particularly be careful of the stairs going up to the first floor (though we didn't have any safety issues).

There were very few mosquitoes when we stayed, but perhaps that was due to the time of year we stayed.

We really felt that we'd experienced a part of Italian life staying at this house and would thoroughly recommend it. We hope to return one day soon.
