The house is a part of a big country house but you will be the only tenants as there are no other apartment we rent.

There is a big garden all around the property with a fantastic view over the valley and the country. The living room/dining room has two big windows that open onto the garden and the valley.

It is located on the valley of Pesa river that is South of Florence (20 minutes by car), near the main street that go to the main Tuscan cities, including Florence, Siena and Pisa. As you are in the country you can relax in the silence after visiting the main cities or the small village in the countryside of Chianti region

Lovely Tuscan holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautifully situated in a peaceful spot in the Tuscan hills yet close to all amenities such as shops, petrol stations and restaurants. It is also well placed for trips to Florence, Siena, Lucca and other tourist destinations. The house is very comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The garden has lovely far-reaching views out across the hills to the mountains beyond. The owners, Antonio and Silvia, whose home is adjacent to the property, are extremely welcoming and, while discreet, are always only too happy to help when needed. They are also most generous in their gifts of wine and produce from their own garden.

We must also mention the local restaurant, the Podere Torricella, which is a 5 minute walk away. The food is really excellent and at a very reasonable price, as is the wine from their own vineyard. The delightful lady in charge speaks English and there is also an English version of the menu available. We enjoyed it so much that we ate there twice during our stay.

All in all a lovely place to spend your holiday in Tuscany, highly recommended. Mille grazie, Antonio e Silvia!

Un grand merci à Mr DI MA...

  • 5 of 5

Un grand merci à Mr DI MARCO qui a su nous recevoir avec le plus grand professionnalisme et le sourire ! Cette maison est très belle et permet de rayonner sur une majeure partie de la toscane. Avec un enfant en bas âge il n'y a aucun souci et en plus il existe la possibilité d'avoir un lit pour enfant. Vous prenez vos effets personnels et puis c'est tout. Merci Antonio.

Un séjour parfait

  • 5 of 5

Idéal pour nos deux semaines de vacances en famille. Très bien situé, nous avons pu rayonner partout en Toscane depuis le gîte.

La maison est très bien agencée, le jardin est orientée vers le nord ce qui est un atout durant les après midi parfois très chauds, la vue est magnifique et le petit écureuil habitant du jardin est très sympa :). Nous nous sommes vraiment sentis très bien là-bas. Merci à Antonio, Sylvia et Anna pour leur accueil, leur gentillesse et leurs conseils !

Au calme dans une confortable maison campagnarde

  • 5 of 5

La maison a été très bien restaurée par Antonio et Silvia et garantit un confort appréciable. Les propriétaires vivent dans la maison d'à côté mais n'imposent pas leur présence et sont très discrets. La disposition de la propriété contribue à préserver l'intimité des locataires. Le jardin est agréable avec une vue plaisante sur les collines toscanes. La terrasse est orientée vers le nord, ce qui est précieux pour se préserver des fortes chaleurs estivales. L'équipement de la maison était parfait et sa propreté digne d'éloges.

Les propriétaires sont très attentifs, à l'écoute de leurs hôtes et, pour tout dire très sympathiques. Les conseils prodigués ont été précieux pour préparer nos visites , faire nos courses ou tout simplement aller au restaurant. Antonio qui est très méticuleux a ainsi consigné dans un gros dossier toute une série d'informations pour se déplacer et visiter dans la région (par exemple comment aller à Florence en tramway, idée que nous n'aurions pas eue autrement...). La maison est construite à flanc de colline dans une région située à environ 20 km de Florence. Les explications fournies par Antonio la rendaient facile à trouver. Elle est située à quelques kilomètres de la voie rapide FI-PI-LI, ce qui facilite les déplacements. Ceci est appréciable car la Toscane est une grande région et si vous souhaitez la parcourir de long en large comme nous l'avons fait, il n'est pas inintéressant de pouvoir optimiser les temps de trajet. Un point d'attention : la maison n'a pas de piscine, ce qui peut décourager les familles avec enfants, notamment en cas de forte chaleur. Notre solution : effectuer pendant le séjour quelques excursions à l'ouest de la Toscane (Pise, Lucques) avec un passage par les plages à proximité (à environ 1heure de la location) voire choisir de passer la journée à Portovenere ou dans les Cinque Terre (près de La Spezia).

Nous recommandons cette location aux personnes aimant le calme et la campagne ainsi qu'aux personnes portées sur le tourisme "culturel". Le rapport qualité prix de cette location est tout simplement excellent.

Wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two fantastic weeks in this wonderful flat!

Thank you, Antonio and Silvia, for your hospitality! Especially for providing everything we needed for our little kids and the tasty food from your garden :).

This apartment is perfect, if you want to explore wonderful Tuscany (nearly every major city is one hour away by car, but you also can spent a peaceful day in the olive tree garden).
