For us, the perfect honeymoon location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 23, 2013

For our honeymoon, we wanted a location that was peaceful, and fairly remote away from the main village and Cantina de Bacco was perfect. The villa is located in a small group of other cottages on the side of the valley approximately 6km from the village of Londa up a narrow winding singletrack road, the views are awesome!

The villa itself is set in beautiful gardens, and there is a shared pool about 100m walk down the road, and the pool is set in a large open garden. We never had a chance to use it due to spending most days away on day trips, and the one day we did spend at the villa, the weather was warm but cloudy and not the best for lazing by the pool !
The villa was also a perfect location for us, we spent days away in Rome, Florence, Venice and visited the MotoGP at San Marino the day after we arrived !!
A hire car is a must if you plan on travelling around, however the day we visited Rome, we drove into Florence, parked close to the railway station and took the train to Rome, a 1hr 40min trip on the express service. Venice was a 3.5 hour drive and well worth the journey.
Also, a visit to the shopping outlet village at Barberino di Mugello (1 hour drive) is worthwhile.
The villa was clean and very well presented, the owners have taken a lot of effort to ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible, we will truly miss having breakfast under the grapevine pergola, in fact we were both very sad to leave.

We would highly recommend staying at Cantina de Bacco.

Holliday in Londa in Toscana

We spent a week in Cantina di Bacco - a lovely house in Vierle. We arrived 22. May 2012.
Everything in the house was very fine, and all our expectations were fulfilled. It is a perfect place for relaxing and for a romantic holiday for two. The owner and her sister are very kind and helpful both before arriving and during our stay.
We had a lovely holiday- some days we were hiking, and other days we went around enjoying the beautiful Toscana.
Londa is a very nice and charming little village, and here we could buy all we needed for our stay.
We will give our best recommendation.

Our cosy one bedroom villa dates back to the 15th century, it lies in a peaceful unspoiled setting in the green heart of Tuscany, close to Florence and ancient typical country towns, not far from the lovely historical towns of Arezzo, Siena, Lucca and Pisa.

The Villa and its garden, fully independent, are part of a medieval hamlet situated in an elevated position, 450 m above the charming village of Londa. Londa is on the edge of the Casentino Natural Park. 40 Km away is Lake Bilancino on whose shores you can swim and windsurf.

The location is at 20 km from the most well-known Italian outlet (The Mall) with the best designer's clothing and footwear. If you take a train to Florence you can leave your car in a free parking in front of the train station of Contea 3 Km away from Londa.
