About the property

Beautiful, independent villa with private pool created from the restoration of an ancient hamlet of houses dating back to the 12th century at the time owned by the family Cerchi, a prominent family in Florence who made his fortune through trade and finance. Next to the villa there also is a small chapel dedicated to the Blessed “Umiliana” of the family Cerchi, whose remains rest in the church of Santa Croce in Florence.

This property is well kept and offers large outside areas and welcoming interiors furnished in a rustic style.

The villa’s location is tranquil and panoramic and offers an ideal destination for those seeking for a peaceful holiday on the hills surrounding Florence (Florence is approx. 35 km away and is also accessible by train from the railway station of Rufina).

Review for stay from 08 July 2017 to 15 July 2017

  • 4 of 5

Super skønt og smukt sted.

Fantastisk beliggenhed, hvor TOSCANA opleves fra sin bedste side.

Gode værelser.

Det eneste minus var dog at køkkenet ikke var opdateret, havde forventet et større og bedre køkken.

Det var absolut ikke et køkken der var beregnet til 14 pers.

Review for stay from 01 August 2015 to 08 August 2015

  • 3 of 5

House and surrounding is very nice, but needs some refurnishing & renovation and the Service was not convincing

kitchen not adequatlyx equipped for large groups(only 5 coffee spoons for 14 People, no pans and pots), freezer / fridge in the kitchen was not working, no dish towels etc.

No sun umbrellas, no covers for the sun beds.

No WiFi

[counter comment from the owner] Like I told the guests, the fridge in the kitchen was working normally and in another room they had another fridge with freezer available.

The kitchen is equipped normally but we however immediately gave the guests what they needed (more pots and pans).

The wifi did not work for one day because of a summer storm. Some guests however had equipment that did not connect to the our wifi network but that does not depend on us. Also for the rest, once they asked me (spoons, tea towels) I proceeded immediately. The only thing we did not have are pillows for the sun beds because they are soft beds like you use on the beach, we have however purchased those now.

The castel was even more beautiful than the pictures showed. The setting was magnificent, and the property manager, Alicia, above and beyond helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend this property and EasyReserve. Go and have a vacation you will never forget!
