This was a wonderful place to stay for a totally relaxing holiday in the quiet of the hillside yet only 15mins by car to Florence. Silvia and her husband were very accommodating, friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay so good even bringing back our shopping from the town on our first night as we met in the supermarket and had walked there. They live in the attached house next door and are on hand with anything you might need but are not intrusive. The house is much larger than i expected in a very pretty location up in the hillside and very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. It was very spacious and clean and had a lovely, large patio area where we always ate breakfast and sat in the evening sunshine. The pool was very welcome as it was so hot and it was totally for our use. Lovely view from the pool over looking horses in the fields and the hillside with olive trees and grape vines. The nearest town is very small with only one restaurant and a couple of bars. There is also a supermarket and icecream parlour. There are lots of restaurants around though but you need to go by car. A car is definitely recommended if you stay here as its well off the road up a hilly, rough dirt track road. It was lovely to be in the countryside after visiting busy tourist areas and this is certainly not a tourist area. Absolutely perfect and highly recommended.
My family stayed here for 3 months this Fall, and it was a wonderful experience. The house was bigger than I expected, and the photos do not fully show how charming and pretty it is. We felt comfortable and well looked-after the entire length of our stay. Silvia and Corradino (located in an attached house with separate entrance) were always available for help or advice, and never intrusive. The area is beautiful and the views amazing. The location was nice too-- close to Florence (15 minute drive) but still in the countryside. My kids attended the International School, which was a 4-minute drive away. We will always remember our time at this house fondly. Thank you Silvia & Corradino!
Silvia & Coradino couldn't have been better hosts. They live in the front part of the property, and are available, but not intrusive. The property is right off the highway, close to Florence (park free nearby & take 32 bus in/20 minutes) many wonderful privacy features, picturesque views, good sized Italian kitchen, good sized living room, no small bathrooms, no small bedrooms, ideal outdoor terrace for meals, & an aboveground pool with a great view for evenings after long daytrips walking. We've used homeaway frequently, but this was our best find for house, location & landlords ever! Very comfortable fit for 6 people. Loved it. Many thanks to the gracious owners. Ideal situation for our family.
This is a really lovely place to be for a month in Tuscany. It is near the autostrada about 8 km from the center of Florence and 1 km from the little village of Antella, where a bus picks you up and goes straight to downtown Florence. A month was long enough for us to relax and really soak in the Tuscan countryside and see this wonderful historical part of Italy up close. The house is surrounded by vineyards and olive orchards, with a wonderful view.
This is a very large farmhouse that has a two-story back end divided off into a separate nice apartment. Our hosts, Coradino and Silvia, live in the front larger apartment and were very available whenever we needed help or advice. They were the best hosts I can imagine. They speak English well and they really know their country, and were super helpful and great in giving us tips and insights into their country. They made lots of good suggestions that were not in the guidebooks.
The entry road into this place is not picked up by the GPS, so if possible I recommend you arrange to meet the hosts in the Antella center so they can bring you in the first time.
We highly, highly recommend this, especially for stays of a couple weeks or more.
Our stay has been simply memorable. This villa is situated on a stunning hill, perfectly located in the immediate vicinity of Florence. The description of the house was accurate and I would say it even exceeded our expectations. The house is lovely inside and equipped with everything you could possibly think of. The owner Silvia and her husband were always there for us when we needed something. They made sure to get us a barbecue under our request and when we had a little problem with the shower they took care of it immediately replacing a piece promptly. The outdoor is simply gorgeous, with a stunning view from the pool, surrounded by beautiful lavender. We definitely recommend this property and we will definitely go back there next time we head to Florence!!!!
Very pleasant place and very well looked after by a very friendly couple.
We found the house spacious for us 6 (4 children) and the swimming pool was a lot of fun for eveybody. We enjoyed the beautiful view over the landscape and nice walks to the hills, short drive from the city of best Firenze sites and shopping malls.
Our hosts were very helpful and had a lot of information to give us when needed. Very nice to meet real tuscan people and very gentle indeed. Lots of attention to details, very nice with our children. The dogs were no problem and looking at horses grazing was very country like.
Sure we will come back soon with friends or with children ... +++
Charming restored farmhouse on the southern hills of Florence,'La Villa' is surrounded by the typical Tuscan countryside:olive tree and cypresses. The apartment opens on a large terracotta tiled terrace for al fresco dining and lovely cool evenings, the private garden offers a wide and safe space for cooling off after visiting the Florentine artistic treasures or a shopping binge in the city centre. On the ground floor you'll find a spacious sitting-dining room, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with shower. Three double bedrooms with breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and a bathroom with bathtub are located on the first floor. Wi-fi internet access and TV will keep you in touch with the world while you are enjoying the natural beauty of Tuscany. The pool area is organized to offer you refreshing moments of leisure getting lost in the green landscape all around you.
The Chianti region is only a few miles away many wineries have wine tasting facilities and innumerable small restaurants and 'trattorie' will entice you with simple healthy Tuscan food specialities.
All around 'La Villa' are beautiful walks that will take you to unexpected corners, medieval churches, panoramic spots, old monasteries...
Although the property is totally immersed in the countryside, the access to the city of Florence is extremely easy, by car or by city bus (700 metres down the road).
