Traditional mansion surrounded by olive groves, vineyards 10 min. from Florence - Fienile

Bedrooms 1
Space 645 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights




This is undoubtedly the most vividly traditional building. Built entirely of stone it is pleasantly illuminated by the gaps between the bricks (fixed in a slanting-superimposed structure), characteristic of this type of rustic building. Daylight pours through the ample windows in the brickwork, whose geometrical structure doesn't compromise the gorgeous view enjoyed through them. The structure comprises two levels, with the bedroom located on the upper level. Both levels are air conditioned. Huge wrought-iron glass doors define the entry to the building. Upon crossing the threshold, entry is made to the living room outfitted with a divan, TV set and dining area. The fireplace wall separates this area from the kitchen, equipped with modern stove and electric appliances. A stone staircase leads to the bedroom, whose cherry-wood parquet flooring conveys a feeling of warmth and coziness. Thanks to the ample width of the room, an additional bed can be accommodated.

About the property


The Spazzavento Mansion is located on the renowned hills of the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by woods, olive groves, and vineyards, a few minutes' drive from Firenze (Florence locality Scandicci), bordering on the environmentally protected area Poggio Valicaia. Plentiful opportunities for walking and hiking pass right by the mansion. The accommodations comprise the owners' residences and three comfortable, neat double-rooms inside which every detail is the result of attentive care. The Mansion sits in an area blessed by the marriage of culture and nature: you can enjoy relaxing walks along white country paths, long bike jaunts along vineyards and olive groves, bracing horseback riding and relishing the region's celebrated great wines, extra-virgin olive oil, meat, and cheese. Within 10 minutes you can reach the center of Florence where all needs for culture will be satisfied.

suitable accomodation for couples or families : The mansion 'Spazzavento' offers three stylishly renovated apartments of the same size which guarantee the perfect solution for couples or small families who want to spend a vacation together, but each with its own space.

Beautiful typically Tuscan property ideal for couples

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in one of 3 modern conversions of barns and other outbuildings attached to a grand house in stunning gardens and olive groves overlooking the suburbs of Florence. The apartment was very well equipped with all the mod cons including aircon, dishwasher, washing machine, wifi, etc. but all wrapped in a perfectly restored stone building. The family who own the property were very kind and accommodating and happy to provide us with information on local restaurants and attractions. There are 3 or 4 restaurants within 5 minutes drive (we would highly recommend Poggio il Masseto), and a main town Scandicci within 10 minutes drive with supermarkets and major transport links including a tram into the centre of Florence - removes all the hassle of parking in the city. Around the property are various walking routes into protected woodland and hills which were very pleasant and an opportunity to find local wildlife including deer and potentially more exotic beasts. In summary would highly recommend this accommodation for a quiet out of town retreat with easy connections to local tourist hot-spots including Florence (15 mins), Pisa (1 hour), Volterra (1.5 hours) and much more.

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung nahe Florenz in Toplage

  • 5 of 5

Fienile ist eine gemütliche wunderschöne Ferienwohnung mit guter Ausstattung, die sehr zu empfehlen ist. Will man die Stadt Florenz besuchen, so ist man in ein paar Minuten den Berg hinunter nach Scandicci gefahren, von dort fährt eine Straßenbahn in 15 Minuten zum Bahnhof Florenz. Besser geht es nicht. Nach anstrengenden Stadtbesuchen genossen wir hoch oben mit fantastischem Blick auf Florenz die Ruhe auf dem Anwesen der Familie Galletti zwischen Olivenbäumen und Wald. Direkt am Haus führt ein Wanderweg vorbei, die nahe Umgebung eignet sich ebenfalls für schöne Mountainbiketouren.

Un endroit remarquable et un hôte tout aussi remarquable. Vue exceptionnelle, tranquillité et proximité de la belle ville de Florence. Gabriele, notre hôte, nous a apporté une aide précieuse lorsque nous avons fait face à des problèmes de santé nécessitant des soins hospitaliers urgents. On recommande sans réserve!

Tolle Location für einen Toskanaurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für 14 Tage zu Gast bei den überaus freundlichen Vermietern dieser traumhaften Location mit Blick auf Florenz. Da wir bei unserer Ankunft das Anwesen nicht gleich finden konnten, ließen wir uns von Gabriele, einem der beiden Brüder, die hier die Chefs sind, abholen und bekamen gleich alle wichtigen Informationen zur Wohnung ( bzw. Haus, wir waren im "fienile" ). Das Anwesen liegt ruhig auf Halbhöhe in einem Vorort von Florenz und ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Es ist von Wasch-und Spülmaschine an alles vorhanden, was auch einen längeren Aufenthalt angenehm macht. Wir bekamen sogar 2 mal vom Vater der Vermieter Rotwein und Früchte geschenkt. Im Zentrum von Florenz ist man, dank einer Strassenbahn, die es seit 2010 gibt, bequem in 30 Minuten. So hat man die Möglichkeit, nach einem lebhaften Stadtbesuch schnell wieder Ruhe und Erholung zu haben. Ein Einkaufszentrum ist mit Auto in 15 Minuten erreichbar. Auch die Restaurants von Gabriele's Empfehlungsliste, welche wir ausprobieren konnten, waren sehr gut.

Fazit: Wer noch nicht Toskana-Fan ist, der wird es hier!

The mansion 'Spazzavento' is located in Scandicci, urban district of Florence and just 10 minutes distance from the historical center of this beautiful Tuscan city. You can enjoy relaxing walks along white country paths, long bike jaunts along vineyards and olive groves and bracing horseback riding. Being just 7km from the highway A1 allows you to organize daytrips to Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo and Viareggio which is right at the seaside called 'Versilia'.
