Beautiful Tuscany views!
We stayed for two months and enjoyed every minute of it! Nice little farm villa attached to beautiful large home. The area is just beautiful and very quiet. A very short walk into town for a morning coffee, gelato, groceries, etc. The family is wonderful and provided everything we needed and more! We will miss this home away from home! Thank you for helping make our holiday everything we hoped it would be!
Cosy apartment with character in a beautiful setting
We loved the character of the place and the tranquil location. The owners are thoughtful and friendly. Shops for essentials are only a short walk away and Mercatale is within easy reach of so many of Tuscany’s attractions. The Chianti region is stunning.
100% Authentic Tuscan Experience
Charming accommodation on a truly breathtaking, picturesque vineyard/olive grove. The beautiful rolling green hills that surround are second to none in all of Tuscany. More ideal with a car, but do-able (w/some time/travel limitations due to limited public trans). Central Tuscan location ideal for visiting all of Tuscany, including Florence. Stefano and his family were warm, welcoming, and attentive. My daughter and I could not have asked for more during our month long stay there. We would welcome another opportunity to stay again, as it very much felt like a home-away-from-home.
"The Chianti countryside ...
"The Chianti countryside surrounding us was breathtaking, and we really appreciated the little terraced garden onto which we could step from the living room. We felt so welcome, and were greatly helped by Signor Rovida's useful advice. It was a peaceful, relaxing and private place to stay, and we hope to return again in the future."
Excellent séjour !
Le gîte est superbe, parfaitement situé à l'écart des grandes routes mais sur l’axe Florence-Sienne à 15 minutes de Florence. Au milieu des oliviers et des vignes, le gîte se trouve dans un magnifique bâtiment. Haut plafond, grande cheminée, décoré avec goût, terrasse et terrain.... Les propriétaires sont accueillants. Tout est réuni pour passer un excellent séjour.
Cadre idyllique et gérants super acceuillants
Ce serait faire la fine bouche que de ne pas donner la note maximale à cette propriété ainsi qu'aux gérants. Le cadre (collines typiques de la toscane au mileiu des vignes et des oliviers) et la bâtisse sont magnifiques. Ma femme était enchantée par le caractère et charme du logement. Le lieu est idéalement située pour les visites de Florence, Sienne, San Gimignano, etc.. mais il faudra une voiture.
Les gérants ont été chaleureux et ont répondu à toutes nos petites demandes et nous avons même eu droit à un cours magistral (dans un francais parfait) sur l'huile d'olive, le Chianti Classicoet même l'histoire de la Toscane par Mr. Rovida père que je salue :-) .
By Car: To reach Il Noce coming from the Highway A1 exit at Firenze-Certosa and get immediately into the 'superstrada' (toll-free highway) to Siena. Exit at S. Casciano (it is the first exit you will find) and follow the signs for S. Casciano. As you reach the village keep on the street you are coming from until you find the signs for Mercatale on your left. Mercatale is about 6 km from S. Casciano. Once in Mercatale you will find a crossing: keep the right (you shall not go to the centre). After about 200 metres you will see on the right the 'Banca del Chianti Fiorentino' and the 'Ceramiche Ceccarelli' shop. Turn immediately on the right and take Via Poggio Borgoni. The land road leads to the entrance of the owner's villa, which has the number 79. Go to the right following the street which ends in the farm's court.
