About Tina Radassao

La Tinaia farm holiday was created from our love of this area and of nature, and from the desire to share, with friends from all over the world, the tranquillity, the beauty and fine living of this enchanting corner of Tuscany, only 15 minutes by car from Florence.

Franco and me (Tina) left the city life in Florence and the office work on '97 to start a new life in this countryside. We have restaured all the house by ourself with only few helps. The apartments have been personally designed, finished and furnished with particular care, to give you the feeling of “just like home'.

We learned growing olive trees and vineyard and making excellent Chianti wine and extra virgin olive oil.

After many years working very hard, we are very proud of our farmholiday 'La Tinaia' and of our top quality products.

The ample park-like grounds, in flower a good part of the year, provide a stupendous panorama of the surrounding countryside. This includes an area equipped for just “lazing around,” for eating al fresco and to enjoy the sun and the beautiful swimming pool with a panoramic view.

Go to Location


All the apartments have been restored and furnished with utmost care and respect of the rural Tuscany style. Panoramic views over the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

We produce and sell top quality extra virgin olive oil and DOCG Chianti wine.

Review Agriturismo La Tinaia

Tina Radassao purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Tina Radassao chose Florentine Hills

We fell in love with this place for its unspoiled nature, sweeping views and beautiful sunsets. We love nature but we also love Florence and the proximity to the town made us decide to live in this paradise.

The house was in state of abandonement and we have spent many years to restore it and transform it completely, trying to valorise its typical Tuscan architecture.

We are happy to offer our guests the opportunity to experience the excitement that this place transmits.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The view of Tuscany can speak for itself, however Franco and Tina made my stay one of the most memorable vacation that I have experienced. The villa and room is as exactly how its portrayed in the photos, exceptionally clean and neat. The grounds are well-maintained and the pristine pool is a refreshing treat after a day of sightseeing. Since the villa is located in the hills of Florence, the night air was comfortable without air conditioning however my room had the option if needed.

I car is needed for exploring the surrounding area. However since I did not rent one, Fiore Restaurant is just a short 7 minute stroll from the the villa.

Tina and Franco hosted a wonderful welcome dinner with all the guests and her table had the international setting one would expect when traveling, as the guests were from Switzerland, France, Belgium and the US.

When I return to Florence, La Tinaia will be my only choice.

Grazie Franco and Tina.

Perfect Italian Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the LA VIGNA room at Agriturismo La Tinaia for our anniversary. We stayed for a week and loved every minute of it. The room was larger than we had anticipated. The first floor has a little eat in kitchen with a couch and TV. The views from the kitchen table are gorgeous! The bedroom is a loft room. It was a warm August and the air conditioner was wonderful to have after a long warm day! The room was extremely clean. The location of La Tiania is very central to the region. We took many did day trips, a car is a must! The tram to Florence is right in town and is very convenient, it takes you straight into Florence's main train terminal. We even did a day trip to Rome because it was so easy!

Because we got an early start to each day, we were back in time to relax by the pool in the afternoon. It was so peaceful. The wine and olive oil is excellent. (I would advise to buy a case or two to take home) There is a wonderful little market in town that Tina and Franco suggested to go to. Don't let the size fool you, it has everything you need and more (and everything is very fresh!)! Perfect to take back a light dinner with a house wine and eat under the grape arbor while watching the sun set!! Tina suggested a wonderful little restaurant within walking distance, which we would suggest to go to at least one night. The meat there is very good! All of Tina and Franco's suggestions were actually wonderful. They were so nice and accommodating and very helpful. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Thank you Tina and Franco for a wonderful experience!

Beau et paisible

  • 5 of 5

Un endroit parfait : calme, élégant et bien situé dans les collines au-dessus de Florence. Nous y avons passé deux semaines enchanteresses partagées entre visites de Florence (le tramway est vraiment très pratique), les excursions dans les autres villes de Toscane (compter une bonne heure de route pour Pise, Sienne et Lucques) et le repos dans un studio à la climatisation naturelle et au bord d'une piscine bien agréable. Accueil chaleureux et précieux conseils de Tina (et son excellent français) et de Franco (qui est un très très bon cuisinier, profitez des copieux repas qu'ils proposent). Bref nous gardons d'excellents souvenirs de notre séjour en Toscane et nous recommandons chaudement cette adresse.
