Settignano Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms , bathroom with shower, air conditioning, pool

The Frantoio delle Grazie accommodation is a pleasant and relaxing alternative to visit Florence outside the city itself. Guests can easily reach downtown (by car,by bicycle or by public transportations) and enjoy Tuscan countryside pleasures as well. The flat is only 5 minutes drive from the A1 highway exit “Firenze Sud”; The hill of Settignano is the natural frame for this panoramic area protected by Italian Superintendency of Cultural Heritage and Environment. Its natural surrounding is dominated by olive groves, vineyards, cypresses and oak-trees. It is only 3 Km from Florence historical city centre; nearest shopping centre is far only 1 Km.

The house: The Villa is a traditional Florentine countryside home: its structure goes back to the XVIth Century. The recent restoration has maintained its original aspect and joined the ancient character together with modern amenities. The charming Florentine atmosphere of Il Frantoio delle Grazie is revealed through the use of typical Tuscan materials as stone, terracotta tiles, beams showing and wrought iron. The interior decoration and the choice of furniture (ancient and period pieces) are in harmony with the regional taste. Every detail has been studied to let you enjoy a pleasant and elegant welcome. The ancient rural rooms, such as the grindstone for olives and the wine cellar, have retained their historical charme.

A COMFORTABLE PLACE TO ENJOY FLORENCE AND TUSCANY

  • 5 of 5
The property was perfect from the moment we drove up the long, beautifully landscaped driveway to a very old, but beautifully renovated farmhouse on the outskirts of Florence. It is so comfortable, peaceful and quiet place surrounded by olive trees, garden and open space. It's within fairly easy reach of Florence's historical center and a comfortable drive to many charming places in Tuscany (Chianti, Sienna, Montepulciano, etc). The apartment was immaculate on our arrival. The surrounding is spacious and very peaceful for relaxing. The manager was very helpful and friendly. We’d definitely recommend this place to our friends and hope to return some other time.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Simone's property for about 10 days. We used it as a home base while taking day trips to: Parma, San Gimignano/Volterra, Lucca and Siena. We also made several trips into Firenze's historic center -- which was a short drive from the apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and Simone's hospitality. We would recommend Il Frantoio delle Grazie to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful region.

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to stay. It felt like we were in the countryside but were very close to Florence. Nice to be so private and surrounded by fruit trees etc. Perfect to have a pool to relax by and cool down in later in the day after a day's sightseeing. Good to have a laundry to use and we were so pleased to have air conditioning for the apartment. It was very clean and had everything that we needed. Simone gave us very good information and was always available to answer any questions that we might have.

PERFECT SPOT FOR VISITING TUSCANY

  • 5 of 5
I had a wonderful stay at the Frantoio and thought its location just outside Florence provided for a perfect blend of sightseeing and relaxation.

The apartments are located in an old, beautifully renovated farmhouse, on a lovely property with an olive grove, garden, vineyards, stream, swimming pool ... It was so peaceful - I slept very well ! - yet there's easy access to Florence's centre for sightseeing and shopping (only a short bus trip) and it's an easy drive to some of Tuscany's other well-known sites, like Chianti and Sienna.

The apartment was comfortable, elegant, well equipped and it was absolutely immaculate when I arrived. Many thanks to the host, Simone, who was charming, friendly and very helpful with all of my queries.

All in all, I would highly recommend this place and am already looking forward to my next trip to Tuscany and the Frantoio!
