Update November 2016: Just bought new more-comfortable beds and a new bigger full-hd tv for the living room! Now you can enjoy the Sky Tv subscription we offer!
Without doubt, the most important feature of this place is that you'll find yourself in the heart of the "Chianti-shire", the most beautiful part of Tuscany (and probably of Italy), but still only a few minutes away from Florence (20-25mins). This house is part of a 14th century villa immersed in the Tuscan countryside, with a stunning view over Chianti hills. The excellent location provides easy access to the most important cultural and touristic locations of Tuscany, such as Pisa (1h10mins), Siena (1h), San Gimignano (45mins), Volterra (1h10mins), Monteriggioni (40mins), Lucca (1h), Arezzo (1h), Cortona (1h30mins). If you don’t want to use your car to go to Florence, a bus stop towards the city is about at 600m from the house, you'll find the timetables in the house. The surrounding countryside also offers the possibility of many fascinating routes on foot and bicycle and, for golf enthusiasts, the famous golf-club “Ugolino" is only 4 kilometers away.
The house is on two floors: the ground floor is formed by the living room with fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with 2 single beds, and two bathrooms (both with showers). If you are 5, we can set a fifth camp-bed in one fo the two bedrooms.
If you travel with a baby, don't worry! We are "family-ready", so we can offer you a cot, we can mount a safety gate for the stairs, set a highchair and a plastic bathing tub.
You can use the big garden, from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of the valley, vineyards, olive groves and the adjacent woods, with a large lawn, table, chairs, deck chairs, barbecue and table tennis. Feel free to use the fireplace as well, just be careful :).
I will provide toiletries and linen for you and in the house a washing machine and a dryer are at your disposal.
There is a grocery shop that you can reach in 8-9 mins by foot and 2 supermarkets 5 mins away by car, one in Impruneta and one in Strada in Chianti.
We offer Sky TV in the house, with lots of satellite channels that offer a range of movies and tv shows. There is wifi internet and private lit parking for your car.
A few steps away there is our farm "Santa Cristina a Pancole" that produces organic wine and olive oil: during your stay feel free to ask me for one of our bottles!
A large private forest is waiting for you to walk and go in search of mushrooms, berries! And I will give you a list of the most famous restaurants around the house for great meals.
Read the reviews and you'll understand why staying in this home will be a special experience, that will make your vacation unforgettable.
