The farmhouse RONDINI BLU is located in the heart of the Chianti region, in the open countryside, 0,5 km far from the small village of Poppiano (where you may visit the ancient Poppiano Castle from the X century), and it is surrounded by fields of olive trees and vineyards. RONDINI BLU is also producing its own wine and olive-oil,that our guests may taste. Immersed in all this peace and tranquillity, are the farm-villa and the swimmingpool (15m x 7,5m). It is a perfect example of a Tuscan country villa, immersed in the tranquillity of the Tuscan countryside, mid-way beetwen Florence and Siena. The Villa was perfectly restored on January 2008 and at the groundfloor is located the apartment MARGHERITE (for 4/5 persons). Delightfully furnished,it is made of 2 double bedrooms (one may be changed into a triple), 2 bathrooms (one with a Jacuzzi-type bath-tub), a large living room with a double sofa bed, a dining room, a kitchen fully equipped with fridge, oven, freezer, dish-washer, kettle, Italian coffee-maker. Private garden with BBQ. Wi-Fi Internet.At your arrival, we will be glad to suggest you the best itineraries to discover the most beautiful little towns or villages in the Chianti area. On request, we may book for you the tickets to visit the Uffizi or Accademia museums in Florence, in order to avoid you to queue outside the museums many hours.

Guests are free to wander the estate, where there are over 20 acres of private land, ideal for enjoyable walks in the country. On request, we may cook for you typical Tuscan dinners & breakfasts. Bike rental on request.

Wonderful home in Tuscany area!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Le Rondini Blu, Stefano was the perfect host! The home was comfortable and well appointed, our group was two couples in our 30's and it worked perfectly with our own bedrooms/bathrooms. Stefano gave several recommendations on places to visit and restaurants to enjoy authentic local cuisine and all were wonderful! We also opted for breakfast on site, we had an assortment of options to start our day and then get out to go sightseeing. From here we visited Florence, Pisa, CinqueTerre, Grieve in Chianti, we were all over the countryside and it was perfect!

Fantastic Property in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I spent a wonderful five days at Podere Le Rondini, about 30 minutes south of Florence. It's in an ideal location to visit many of the well-known medieval towns and villages in Tuscany, such as Certaldo, Siena, and San Gimignano, as well as close to Florence, itself (a rental car is necessary). Owner/Manager Nicola was extremely welcoming and helpful, providing multiple maps and suggestions for touring the region. He responded to our every question and could not have been nicer. We had a comfortable two-bedroom, two-bath unit in a building that had one other unit. A larger villa was also available for bigger groups. Each until has an outdoor patio/eating area. The views over the vineyards and olive groves are gorgeous. The property is meticulously maintained with beautiful rose beds blooming throughout. The pool was lovely, although a bit cold in mid-May! We also took advantage of being on a working farm to visit the wine production coop nearby and learn more about the wine industry in the Chianti region. Wine-tasting is available, as well. Nicola was a wealth of information. I recommend Le Rondini without hesitation!

Beautiful Tuscan Home!

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples travelling through Italy. We really enjoyed our stay. The home and property was beautiful. We were there when they were harvesting the grapes. We had an opportunity to go on a wine tour with the owners nephew. It was a relaxing time in Tuscany.

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans cette propriété, l'accueil fut très chaleureux, Nicolas est très attentionné.

L'appartement était décoré avec beaucoup de goût, les lits sont très confortables.

La piscine commune est grande.

L'endroit, situé sur la route des vins est magnifique.

Idéal pour visiter la Toscane.

Nous recommandons!

charmante ancienne demeure à proximité de Florence

  • 5 of 5

La villa Margherite est le rez-de-chaussée d'une ancienne demeure. Le propriétaire vit au premier. La villa est bien fraîche et très spacieuse. La cuisine est juste magnifique. La grande chambre est presque un salon. Il y a quelques variations dans le débit d'eau mais cela constitue à mon sens peu de désagrément par rapport au charme de cette maison. La piscine est très grande et partagée avec un autre groupe de villas. Il y a des transats en abondance disséminés dans un verger d'oliviers. Nous sommes en plein campagne et il est préférable d'avoir une voiture. Supermaché et autres commerces à Montespertoli (environ 2km). 2 chouettes restaurants: la Buzancca ( 2-3 km) et la Loccanda d'Ortimino (8 km). Le propriétaire est très serviable pour tous renseignements et conseils pour les visites. Si phobie des insectes, lézards et de la nature en général, s'abstenir :-)

Conviviale !

  • 5 of 5

Une manière de voyager que nous avons découverte; simple, efficace, plus flexible et abordable que les hôtels. Ça nous a permis de découvrir de gens et quelques trucs que nous n'aurions pas su autrement.

Nous comptons bien utiliser ce site pour notre prochain voyage.
