If you come from Florence (or from the highway A1, Firenze Sud), take the road SS67 until Contea (30 Km from Florence), than take right, towards Turicchi/La Rata. Continue for more or less 3 Km, go by the road sign “La Rata” and continue on the right for another Km. When you see on your left an ancient Villa (Villa Ginori della Rata), you’ve reached our house.

Florence, Valdisieve and Mugello can be easily reached from the village of Contea by bus or train.

We are in the centre of a historical area, rich of culture, of beautiful natural sites and food and wine traditions. Near our house you can find Etruskan traces (rests of a fortress in Frascole, of a temple in Vicchio, and a small Museum in Dicomano), medieval churches, “borghi” and castles (Turicchi, Castiglioni, Vicorati, San Leolino, pieve di Dicomano, pieve di Pomino, pieve di Rincine).

Mugello, where Giotto, Beato Angelico and the Medici family had their birth, is very rich of history and of sites worth-seeing. In Valdisieve, with its gentle hills and its wine traditions, you can go down the road of Vino Chianti Rufina e Pomino, visit the winecellars and the Museum of Chianti Rufina in the beautiful Villa Pantellini in Rufina (15th century). Excellent restaurants, butchers and food shops can be found in this area. A typical product of Londa is a specific variety of peach: la pesca regina di Londa (it ripes at the end of the summer).

You can often find village fairs e “sagre” where it is generally possible to eat local food and delicacies (just to list a few: Bacco Artigiano in Rufina, Toscanello d'Oro in Pontassieve, Fiera di San Martino e Festa del Corso della Nave in Rufina, Festa della Mongolfiera in Londa, Fiera di Maggio e di Ottobre in Dicomano, fiera del tartufo in Borgo san Lorenzo, fiera dell'artigianato MAZE in Vicchio).

Belle demeure dommage qu'il faille la partager ainsi que la piscine avec un groupe de 14 personnes

  • 3 of 5

L’accueil est très chaleureux, le cadre magnifique. L'accès à la propriété est difficile à trouver. C'est amusant la 1ère fois de prendre une route sans visibilité à voie unique mais lassant à la longue. Nous avons été déçus par la cohabitation bruyante que nous avons subi. Le fait que le logement de 5 personnes se situe au rez de chaussée avec les chambres des autres locataires au dessus y est pour beaucoup. L'annonce n'était pas claire du tout sur ce point. De plus, la piscine n'est pas assez grande pour 20 personnes et nous avons du attendre le bon vouloir de la majorité en subissant en attendant les cris d’orfraies des jeunes gens. Le logement est correct, le ménage fait mais sans plus : la vaisselle a dû être relaver !!! pas de grille pain, un bain de soleil et le parasol étaient cassés !! La literie et le linge de maison étaient correctes. Les pommes de douche mériteraient d'être changées. Et nous avons eu un dégât des eaux des sanitaires du 1er étage.

Fijn huis

  • 4 of 5

We hebben een leuke week gehad, met een gastvrij onthaal. Zwembad was heerlijk, huisje fijn.

Wel wat last gehad van muggen, maar over het algemeen een fijne plek

Gîte idéal en famille

  • 5 of 5

Parfait pour des vacances en famille : calme, grand jardin, piscine, ping-pong... La maison est très spacieuse, très propre et les propriétaires sont très accueillants, toujours aux petits soins.

La localisation est idéale pour visiter la Toscane. La petite route pour y accéder est certes un peu étroite et sinueuse mais le paysage est magnifique. Les habitants du tout petit village sont très chaleureux. Nous avons passé d'excellente vacances !

"Enchantés de notre séjour au "Bosco in Ciello" qui porte bien son nom; maison restaurée avec goût, très soignée dans un cadre magnifique et tranquille.

Propriétaires très accueillants qui nous ont fait goûter des produits régionaux et nous ont fourni tous les renseignements utiles à de bonnes vacances. Une excellente adresse."

  • 5 of 5

"Vaste logement restauré avec goût dans un site privilégié. L'accès n'est pas facile mais cela en vaut la peine pour profiter de la vue et du calme. Proche des lieux incontournables de la toscane et situé dans une vallée pittoresque propice aux balades. Bien agréable de pouvoir bénéficier de la piscine à sa retour (sécurisée pour les enfants).

L'accueil est parfait. La propreté est irréprochable, par exemple le propriétaire vient nettoyer la piscine tous les deux jours.

Gîte à recommander.
