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 ruhige Wohnung mit tollem Außblick

  • 5 of 5

die Wohnung befindet sich etwa 9 Km von Florenz auf einer Anhöhe etwas abseits vom Trubel. Als sehr angenehm empfanden wir die Ruhe am Abend, nach unseren täglichen Ausflügen in die Umgebung. Auch für Wanderungen ins Umland sehr geeignet. Sehr nett auch die Vermieter, die uns auch mit einigen guten Tipps versorgten. Einzig die Anreise kann etwas schwierig sein, da die Navigation hier mal gerne versagt und der Hof etwas versteckt liegt. Ein kleines Hinweisschild an der Straße vom Vermieter wäre hier bestimmt hilfreich. Ansonsten verbrachten wir eine sehr schöne und erholsame Zeit auf dem Gut. Nochmals mille grazie an die Vermieter

Voilà un endroit où on serait bien resté un mois! Se lever et déjeuner dans le jardin d'où l'on a une vue époustouflante sur la Toscane. L'appartement est très propre et agencé avec goût, exactement comme il est présenté dans l'annonce. L'accueil chaleureux, la disponibilité et la discrétion du propriétaire vient encore renforcer la qualité du séjour. Souriant, prêt à vous aider au moindre besoin, Gabriele prend un plaisir évident à vous faire partager ce petit bout de paradis ! A recommander.

Un rêve toscan

  • 5 of 5

Spazzavento : un lieu magnifique dominant un paysage de collines florentines, la coupole du Duomo se découpant dans le lointain. La nature toscane à 30 minutes du centre ville sans souci de circulation, ni de parking grâce au tram. Le rêve, Florence et ses richesses artistiques dans la journée et le soir retour dans ce havre de paix et de bon goût. Le gîte est extrêmement bien équipé et confortable sans négliger l'esthétique. Les hôtes, Gabriele Galletti et sa famille rendent le séjour encore plus agréable par leurs attentions, leur disponibilité discrète mais effective. C'est un lieu où on se sent accueilli, auquel on s'attache et qu'il est extrêmement difficile de quitter. Nous, nous ne pensons qu'à y retourner et au plus vite. Merci à la famille Galletti.

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'.
