Pontassieve Apartment 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.

Borgo di Sopra exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
We spent several days in the Cipresso apartment at Borgo di Sopra and could not have been happier with it. It is in a beautiful wooded area overlooking vineyards and the Val di Sieve. It is just a short train ride from Florence which saved us having to park our car in the city. The apartment was spotless, very comfortable and quiet and had everything we needed. The views from the terrace are a delight. Jane and Gianpiero were so warm and helpful, offering suggestions on travel,shopping and even how to pay the parking ticket we acquired earlier in our trip. They made our stay at Borgo di Sopra one of our favorite memories of our trip to Italy. If we return to the area we would definitely stay there again.

Cipresso Apartment-What a way to relax!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my wife stayed for a week and found it delightful. Set in the Chianti Hills above Ponttessieve near Florence we found it really relaxing.
The welcome we received from Jane and Giampierre was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble.
The views were astounding and the apartment was spotless. The finish was beautiful- really inkeeping with the Italian Farm style.
We had a great week and would recommend it to anyone.

Great Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
I had an excellent stay at Cipresso. My friend and I were staying in different places all over Italy and this was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The apartment was pristine, it was so well maintained, it had everything we needed from a tea pot to a colander, to small reading lights by the beds. The terrace has an excellent view of vineyards and other beautiful properties that surround it. The town of Pontassieve was great to walk around, the locals were very nice, it was everything we hoped for.
Jane was also an excellent hostess, she had information on trains going into Florence, where we could go grocery shopping, and winery tours at the castle that was just a 15 minute walk from her property. She was wonderful and her family charming.
I would highly recommend staying here to anyone, it was beautiful, clean, homey, and relaxing. It would be perfect for a honeymoon, a vacation, really any kind of getaway or excuse for visiting. I hope to return to this lovely place someday!

Wonderful location & accommodation

Wonderful location & accommodation

We stayed in the Cipresso studio in this newly renovated 15th century watchtower and found it to be the ideal place from which to explore Tuscany and Florence. The studio is of a decent size with a basic but useful kitchen. It's smaller than the Alba & Vista apartments (which we had a quick peek into while we were there, and which are probably better if you're looking at an extended stay of a few weeks/months), but suited the two of us perfectly for the week we were there. The studio's terrace has a wonderful view across the valley and over to the nearby hills; sitting here at dusk with a wine and antipasto bought from Pontassieve was pretty close to the highlight of our Italian trip.

Pontassieve is about 5 or so minutes down the hill by car (it's 30 minutes on foot - we walked it a few times) and is about 20 minutes to Florence SMN by train. Sitting on top of the hill behind the property is the Nipozzano castle, part of the Frescobaldi family's winemaking 'empire' and a good place for winetasting. If you like walking, which we do, there are a number of small towns about an hour's walk from the property - we tramped over to Pelgao - with good eating and drinking when you get there.

Jane & Gianpiero, the owners of the property, are lovely people and were extremely welcoming. We enjoyed their place so much that we extended our stay by two nights. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. If we ever go back to the area, this is where we staying.

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.
