VISTA

Pontassieve Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Located on a Chianti Rufina vineyard with panoramic views in peaceful Tuscany

Escape into rustic Chianti Rufina and enjoy the timeless pleasures of Tuscany - less than 30 min from Florence!

This small group of buildings was once part of the first line of defences of Renaissance Florence. Now on a working vineyard, they have been converted to create an attractive villa and apartments. Situated in a prestigious Florentine estate which produces an impressive Chianti, there is a panoramic hilltop castle within walking distance. Florence is an easy train ride away, saving the headache of city parking. For 2 people, you can choose between Cipresso, a mini apartment with kitchenette, or Alba and Vista, which both have full kitchens and separate bedroom. If you are travelling in a group of up to 4, select the tab for Villa, the converted barn with two spacious panoramic terraces, two double bedrooms and bathrooms. For larger groups, up to 7, select Antica & Cipresso. Alternatively, groups of up to 13 can rent the whole Borgo. All apartments have their own private terrace with views across the valley.

Approach Road: Please note that there is a 1km rough, farm road to approach the property. The surface of the road is in loose stone and not tarmac. Most of our guests arrive in small hire cars without problems. Ask us for more information if you are concerned.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We chose Borgo di Sopra for the views and location and discovered everything else was delightful and perfect. The buildings have been exquisitely renovated in the traditional style and are a delight to live in. We appreciated the easy train trip to Florence, exploring the local wineries and the historic towns as well as evening walks through the surrounding vineyards. Jane & Giampiero were wonderful hosts. We concur with all the other positive reviews. Our only challenge was poor internet connection in Vista.

Fabulous accommodation with excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5
We spent a truly wonderful week in Vista in July. The accommodation is extremely well equipped, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and the views from the terrace are simply amazing. However, the difference between this and other holiday accommodation is undoubtedly the hosts Jane and Giampiero who are extremely welcoming and hospitable and who went out of their way to make our stay special and who provided lots of useful and interesting information of the surrounding area. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

Best holiday ever!!!

  • 5 of 5
I first would like to thank Jane and Jean Pierre for the fabulous hospitality and care during our stay; they treated us like family and we were sad to leave. We enjoyed the property so much! We stayed one week in Vista and it was exactly as portrayed in the pictures and description. The bungalow was clean, light, comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The terrace is spacey and has great lounge chairs and also a table and chairs so we could eat outside or sip wine while relaxing and enjoying the breathtaking views after a full day of sight-seeing and shopping.
The location was excellent for exploring Tuscany . The driving distances were quite reasonable (btw 25 min to 1,5 hrs , depends on destination) and just five minutes of drive away from cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, shops and rail station . The owners are very kind and accommodating. We highly recommend this bungalow. Jane and Jean Pierre are very warm and friendly people and made us feel very much at home. I really look forward to staying here the next time I'm in Tuscany and would highly recommend it to my friends and relatives.

Lovely Vista

  • 5 of 5
Very beautiful bungalow. Everything is new and clean exactly the same as photos.
Very welcoming owners with good suggestions regarding to the attractions around the area. If you go there, read their BIBLE. It is quiet useful.

Located in a quiet and relaxing area, lower than a beautiful castle. If you are food lover, wine lover, looking for a place to relax, enjoying the nature, ... Vista is the best place to be.

The accomodation was as good as the pictures suggest. We were made very welcome during our two week stay and our hosts could not be more friendly or helpful.

The property was very clean and had a good range of equipment. A useful set of guidance notes was provided which recommended good local eating places.

A trip to the nearby Frescobaldi wine estate is a must, excellent wines and olive oil.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5
The location and accommodation was exactly as described on the website but the views were more magnificent! We stayed in the Vista Villa which was spotless and all mod cons were present. The villa was spacious and had the benefit of the lovely views from the windows. As it was warm weather we had lunch and early dinner outside and felt like being in a top restaurant with a special view! A totally ideal place for a lovely break. The owners were extremely helpful in recommending places to eat and were delightful. Nothing was too much trouble in helping us out. Getting to Florence was very easy 20 mins by train and free parking in the local town. Beautiful place, lots to see and do and would recommend to friends and family!

The 2 main airports in Tuscany (Pisa and Florence) are easily accessible . Short breaks are feasible all year round! You'll know you have made an escape from routine, though, when you drive down the winding approach road. You pass through vineyards with a historic castle and our property above you in the distance. You are now in the Nipozzano estate of the noble Florentine family of Frescobaldi. From your apartment, a pleasant walk, with superb views, will take you up to the castle. There the wine is aged in the historic cellars and you can taste and buy all Frescobaldi wines. Numerous other panoramic walks dot the area (the historic monastery of Vallombrosa is not far either). For renaissance culture, we are near Florence and Arezzo. Regular trains from Pontassieve station (5 minutes away) to central Florence take only 20-25 minutes. Alternatively, designer outlet discounts from Gucci, YSL, Todds etc are to be found at the Mall, outside Leccio, 15 minutes away.

Other Activities: Wine tasting.
