Bathroom with shower, gas stove, open air parking.

Lovely and charming rural accommodation in spectacular scenery. Friendly owners. Deep pool.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely conversion, simply and nicely done, on the owner's beautiful estate on the side of a mountain. The views from our secluded terrace were stunning. The hen-house had everything we needed (including its own washing machine) and was spotless. It also kept us cool in the 30 degree heat. There are 3 different conversions in the grounds but they're some distance apart and each one has its own outside area and you're never crowded. The owners were helpful and welcoming.

From the nearest station (10 mins drive from the property) it was a 40 minute train ride to Florence. You're about 1hr 30 min drive from the famous Chianti places like San Gimignano. You're very rural and peaceful - nearest shops and restaurants in Londa about 10 mins drive.

Londa also has a reservoir with walking trails, playpark, stream to paddle in and a great pizzeria (Da Fischio).

The only downside to the rental was that the communal pool on the property is 3 metres deep! It is locked (you have a key) and there are lots of inflatables and it is small enough that a few strokes will always get you to the side, but, if you have young kids who are not confident swimmers, it can be scary. Consider taking strap-on floats.

Owner's Response: Set among the olive and fruit trees the swimming pool is also named the "Vascone" – size 12mt x 5mt, 3.20mt deep Once a reservoir for watering the fields now it's been turned into a modern swimming pool. We have decided to turn the old reservoir into a modern swimming pool respecting the shape in order to preserve the landscape and also to maintain contact from the past to the present use. The pool is protected by a fence. Each guest is given a key - the only unbreakable rule is that children can access only if accompanied by their parents.

  • 5 of 5

"The surroundings were gorgeous as was the view. The amenities were perfectly fine. It was fairly accessible although a person in a wheelchair might have a difficult time getting up the stairs from the parking lot. The small house was clean and bright. The hosts were very nice and interesting, helpful, and accommodating. There was some noise especially on the weekends from motorcycles nearby, but it did not bother me that much. Most of the time it was very peaceful and pleasant."

Un très beau séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines très agréables dans ce lieu magnifique, calme, serein, avec une vue extraordinaire sur la vallée toscane. Quel plaisir les dîners dehors face au coucher de soleil !

La maison (ancien poulailler rénové) est très jolie, originale, propre et confortable. Elle est située dans un beau domaine comprenant 2 autres locations et deux maisons de maître. Elle est suffisamment à l'écart pour que l'on soit au calme et en même temps cette situation permet de rencontrer d'autres vacanciers, ce qui est fort sympathique. Il y a également la belle et grande piscine, proche tout en étant légèrement à l'écart, lieu convivial où se retrouve tout le monde.

L'accueil de Paola et de sa famille est chaleureux et sympathique.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location, parfaite pour une famille avec deux enfants, pour des vacances dans une région extraordinaire, d'où l'on peut partir à la découverte de la Toscane (Florence, Pise, Lucques, Sienne, etc.).

"Superbe séjour au calme dans cet ancien poulailler magnifiquement rénové avec beaucoup de goût. La vue est très belle. On s''y sent bien. Les propriétaires sont adorables et très accueillants. Je conseille vivement ce lieu pour se ressourcer. Florence est très accessible en voiture et l''on peut se garer très facilement et gratuitement au parking michelangelo."
