We are Franco and Tina.
"La Tinaia farmholidays" 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.
We left the city life in Florence and the office work on '97 to start a new life in the 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.
Tina Radassao purchased this apartment in 1996
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.

Friendly welcome and advice to visit the area. Possibility to taste high quality products: wine and olive oil.
This was our first visit to the area. What a superb setting with wonderful hosts Tina & Franco. We had the smaller studio overlooking breath-taking views of the Tuscan countryside. The room had everything we needed & was very clean and tidy, with plenty of storage. Kitchen area was small but certainly big enough for us. The weather was not that kind to us so the pool was not open. There is so much to do in Tuscany that this did not cause us any problem. The price was good & certainly value for money. Worth 5 stars easily & we hope to return one day. If you want a break away from the busy areas then this is the place to stay.

We spent a month at La Tinaia in Sep-Oct 2016. That’s a long time. It’s easy to spoil the entire vacation if one’s living conditions are below expectations. Naturally, we spent a lot of time selecting a place to stay, and boy did we make a right decision!
1. Location. La Tinaia is a 10-15 min drive away from the Tramvia in Scandicci with free parking at the tram station. Trams come every 3-4 minutes. 16-18 min – and you are at Santa Maria Novella, the center of Florence. On the other hand, La Tinaia is a very quiet place right in the middle of unbelievably picturesque area of Tuscany. Take all your lenses if you are involved in photography because you will use all of them! Beautiful sunsets right from the property, hundreds of views to die for within 10 min drive, you name it.
2. Conditions. Rustic style rooms yet convenient kitchen equipment and clean bathrooms; gated parking, a nice pool, outdoor space for lunch, privacy for every guest if you want it. While in Tuscany, we visited several other locations where our friends stayed (including one that we considered “close second”), and La Tinaia was definitely better.
3. Hosts. Tina and Franco are great. They are extremely helpful and very hospitable. What’s more, they invite all their guests to a gourmet dinner once every 1-2 weeks (charging a very reasonable fee). Franco is a fantastic chef, you will be challenged to find this quality of a dinner elsewhere, and even if you do you are guaranteed to pay thrice.
4. Specialty. La Tinaia is actually a winery and they also produce olive oil. Enjoy their products, they worth it.
5. Overall. We will be back. There are so many nice places in the world (and in
Toscana), but we will be back.
Thoroughly recommended! Tina and Franco are wonderful and helpful hosts. Amazing setting with fantastic views. A clean and beautifully kept property. Great restaurant 5 minutes walk. Amenities a short drive and Florence easily accessible on the (frequently running) tram. A Tuscan delight that we would be happy to return to!
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!!
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 !
