The barn, fully renovated and furnished with taste has retained its original charm.
Both floors are connected by a spiral staircase. On the upper floor are a master bedroom overlooking the garden and vineyards, a double bedroom overlooking the hills and a bathroom with shower.
On the ground floor, a large living room, kitchen, dining room overlooking a garden terrace with a large table and barbecue.
Three steps up you find another double bedroom with views of the valley and a bathroom with shower.
By the pool (12x6m) you can have a wonderful view over the vineyards and hills.
A weekly change of sheets and towels and the final cleaning are included in the price.
The cost of heating is calculated according to consumption
The house is a clasic Tuscan Italian house, with great stone floor and arch windows. The bedrooms are very large and have plenty of space. We were six, and had plenty of space.
The out side area is great, lots of flora, and the bbq area is very comfortable.
The pool is quite large, and most of the time we had it all to ourselves (it is shared only with the owners of the attached house).
Mainly two things bothered us while staying in the house: the first, are the bathrooms. As much as the rest of the house is spacious, both bathrooms are tiny and uncomfortable, and seem to be neglected and not realy taken care of. The second thing was lack of nets on the windows. As Tuscan weather is very warm during the summer, it would have been helpful if we could have opened the bedroom windows at night to let some air in. This was not possible due to the huge amount of bugs outside at night, a problem which could have been improved by having nets. We had no choice but to sleep in these hot nights with all windows closed, and the little fans supplied in the rooms were not that helpful.
Over and all we do recomend the house, which also has a good location.
"We enjoyed our stay at this warm & cosy barn. Everything about the place as described on the advert. Rooms are spacious and love the view from the master bedroom. We made full use of the well equipped kitchen every evening. It was really chilly on the first 2 days, central heating works perfectly and it was really warm & cosy.
Silvio is a helpful & generous host. He not only helped us locate chocolate factories and porcini mushrooms, also offered us to sample a selection of the yummy wine he produced on site. We had extra bonus with his 2 dogs and cat who came visit us every morning.
This is a lovely place to have a relaxing holiday."
Comfortable and large house a quiet area. Everything was as described. The farmmanager Gabriele was very nice, caring and helpful.
The only disturbing fact were the gnats in the house at night. Mosquito screens for the windows of the sleeping rooms would be helpful.
The Pool is big and very clean, situated for a great view over the landscape.
Very close to Florence and in almost an hour by car in all interesting sites of Tuscany (for Tourists).
Gîte très bien situé pour découvrir les beautés de la Toscane. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le calme de son environnement et le charme de ses grandes chambres. Excellent séjour.
Idéalement située, une maison charmante, en tous points conforme au descriptif, un environnement 'paradisiaque' très calme, des propriétaires charmants, très attentifs au bon déroulement du séjour, bref une adresse à recommander !
"Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Cerbaia. Le cadre est superbe: la propriété est entourée de vignes exploitées par le propriétaire qui nous a fait visiter sa cave et déguster ses très bons vins. La localisation est idéale pour visiter les villes de Toscane. La piscine est parfaite. Equipement cuisine suffisant mais simple. Il serait agréable d''avoir des transats sur la terrasse. Propriétaires discrets mais disponibles. Superbes vacances :-)))"
