Scandicci Barn Rental Photos and Description

Detached garden, pool, lounge, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 sofas.

In the midst of the greenness and the serenity of this portion of Florentine Chianti which is the closest to town (only 12 km from the centre). The portion of an ancient farmhouse fits perfectly. It is restored with a large garden of 2000 sq.m and a swimming pool that can be accessed by an automatic gate. It is reserved and equipped with some toys for small children. Upon entering the ground floor there is a large living room with chimney, couch, sofa, and TV. It is adjacent to an ancient kitchen and a bathroom with shower. On the upper floor there is a small panoramic bedroom with two single beds, a large bedroom with king size bed on the loft, and a double sofa in the lower area. There is one walk-in closet and a fully served bathroom.

About Anna Maria Tori

Grandmother of 5 wonderful nephews and wife of a retired paediatric.

Anna Maria Tori purchased this barn in 1992

Why Anna Maria Tori chose Florentine Hills

Sharing with our loved ones and friends, the colours, the flavours and the silence of Chianti while being a few steps away from the cupula of the Florence Dome, and a few kilometres from the most beatiful historical and cultural location of Tuscany: from Siena to Pisa, from Lucca to Arezzo, from S.Gimignano to Monteriggioni. Each and every one of these locations is filled with history and work of arts to enjoy as well as the traditional Tuscan cuisine crafted from ancient flavours and genuine products of a generous and wonderful earth.

Museums and monuments can be enjoyed in the freshness of the day, in the warmth of the afternoon or in the sweet and picturesque sunset. It is easy to reach all of these locations from the house to the ' Melograni' (pomegranate) by taking the two highways FI-SI and FI-PI-LI both a few kilometres away. These highways can take you to these distinctive places and get you back in time to take a revitalizing and refreshing swim in the panoramic pool, and savour in the peace and sight of the sunset the food purchased in the various shops of the travelled cities.

A beautiful place to visit Tuscany! You will remember us!

What makes this barn unique

The panorama, the sight of the sunset in summer evenings, the colours of spring or autumn, the silence, and the proximity to the centre of Florence, all in the comfort of an ancient house perfectly restored according to the peasants lifestyle of the time and flawlessly equipped with all kinds of comforts.

"We enjoyed our stay with...

  • 5 of 5

"We enjoyed our stay with Evy and Anna very, very much. They our very kind and helpfull and are always available to make your stay perfect.

The house is also wonderful. It offers all the comfort you need for a perfect holiday. It is spacious and equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, nice and good furniture,etc..

The house is located on a small hilltop in the countryside, which you reach via a small, unpaved road, with a length of about 1 km. For us this was not a problem at all. Around the house there are just the fields, so offering an excellent environment for a quiet and relaxed holiday.

So yes, we really liked Anna and Evy as well as the house very much. We certainly like to come back again."

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We, family of 4 (with older kids) had a great stay. The owners are very friendly, they live there as well and are very helpfull but leave you in peace as well. The big private garden gives plenty of space and is lovely to relax in. The pool is not big and very nice. The house is big and very beautifull. The view over the hills is amazing. You reach it by a rather bumpy dirtroad (0,5 km). We found it convenient to drive to porta romano and parc there when visiting Florence. It took only 25 minutes. But you can also take a tram from Scandicci. The house is just really nice and recommandable!

wunderschönes Haus in Traumlage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu viert (mit 2 Jugendlichen) 2 wunderbare Wochen in diesem schönen Haus mit dem herrlichen Grundstück verbracht und freuen uns schon auf ein Wiederkommen.

Das Haus ist bestens ausgetattet, sehr schön eingerichtet und sehr sauber, der Blick in alle Richtungen traumhaft, die Lage sehr ruhig und doch ist die Verbindung nach Florenz von Scandicci aus optimal. Wir haben nach vielen Besichtigungen das "Heimkommen" immer sehr genossen und uns am Pool erfreut, der netterweise extra für uns gefüllt wurde, obwohl eigentlich noch zu früh im Jahr.

Danke auch hierfür und vor allem für die großzügige und sehr vertrauensvolle Gastfreundschaft. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt !

excellent séjour !

  • 4 of 5

Très bon gîte, belle maison avec jardin prive. Les propriétaires sont à côté et sont très acceuillants et discrets en nous donnant des conseils si nous le souhaitons sur les visites. Trampoline dans leur jardin (super pour les enfants) et piscine (que nous n'avons malheureusement pas pu profiter) il faisait beau mais pas assez chaud pour la piscine. Très agréable dans la campagne Toscane, silencieux. Idéal avec enfants. A recommander.

Très bien situé à 30 min de Florence et 1 h de sienne, pisé, San gimignano et lucca.

Genial y para repetir

  • 5 of 5

Acabamos de regresar de nuestras vacaciones por la Toscana y mis dos hijos no hacen más que decir que echan de menos su casa de Italia. Los padres también la echamos de menos:).

Los propietarios, son una pareja maravillosa, servicial y absolutamente discreta, que estuvo siempre a nuestra disposición para cualquier cosa que necesitáramos, pese a la dificultad del idioma por nuestro mal inglés y pésimo italiano.

La casa es todavía más bonita que en las fotos, todo muy nuevo y muy cuidado. Tiene todo lo necesario en la cocina, ropa de cama, toallas, lavadora,...

Estamos deseando poder volver, pero esta vez en verano, para poder disfrutar del magnífico jardín y la piscina con esas maravillosas vistas.
