Located atop the hill of the ancient Certosa abbey of Florence, immersed in the green of countryside of Tuscany, The Certosa Country House is only 6 Km from the ancient walls of downtown Florence. The house is immersed in the quiteness of the contryside but in the same time is 3 kms away from the the 'Impruneta' highway exit, in a strategic position to visit the wonderful hills of Chianti Region and the centre of Florence!
The History: For the past few centuries, The Rustico della Certosa was a simple building created to welcome peasants working on the surrounding hills. During the 1980's the house was completely renovated, paying close attention not to remove or alter those unique elements that call to mind its rustic past (the ancient exposed wood beams, the original cotto floors from Impruneta).
From the 2005 year we restored three beautifull, fully indipendent units:
The Rustico della Certosa apartment. The biggest portion of the house: a fully indipendent apartment of 200 squared metres house!5BD 3BA
The Rustichetto della Certosa apartment. A fully indipendent apartment of 95 squared metres house. 3BD 2BA
The Rustichino della Certosa apartment. A fully indipendent apartment of 50 squared metres house. 1BD 1BA
All the three apartments has a private garden area with a table, chairs and umbrella. The garden is a true oasis where you can have lunch or dinner ouside or relax during the day.
Located atop the hill of the ancient Certosa abbey of Florence, only 6 Km from the ancient walls of downtown Florence, the Rustico della Certosa is the ideal lodging for those who wish to visit the city during the day, and relax by night, immersed in the green countryside of Florence. The Rustico della Certosa is located by the 'Certosa' highway exit, in a strategic position to visit the wonderful hills of Tuscany!
During the day it is possible to visit the countless works of art of Florence, but to also organize short day-trips in the most famouse tuscany sites.
