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.

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.

Look no further, this is an incredible place to stay and enjoy both Tuscany as well as Florence.

Owners Tina and Franco make you feel right at home and provide useful information to help you travel around the area. This converted farmhouse is not only a place to stay but is also a winery and they sell both their own olive oil and wine. Tina speaks 4 languages which is very helpful to travelers outside of Italy.

The room we stayed in was very clean, nicely furnished/equipped and the bathroom was designed for the traveler.

This is a great place if you have a car as there is free parking and you can travel to the many sites of Tuscany like San Gimignano/Siena/Lucca and the Chianti Classico region. To get to Florence there is a bus line that is 10 minutes away and takes you to the heart of Florence. There is also good markets nearby.

I would recommend this to place to everyone!!

Superbes vacances en Toscane

Une très belle propriété, des appartements très bien décorés et très confortables ! Une grande disponibilité des propriétaires, charmants et très bons cuisiniers ! Une vue magnifique sur les collines du Chianti et un calme très appréciable après les visites de la journée.

La proximité de Florence permet des visites agréables et les conseils de Tina et Franco sont précieux !

Pour un premier séjour en Italie, c'est l'idéal ! Nous le recommandons vivement à tous les voyageurs souhaitant découvrir la Toscane dans d'excellentes conditions.

Les amateurs de Chianti et d'huile d'olive seront comblés !
