About Tina Radassao

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

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Agriturismo La Tinaia is superbly located in a panoramic position amidst vineyards and olive groves near Florence. Ideal to visit the city: 10 min by car from the tram station that takes you to downtown Florence in 18 min. Optimal comfort with good bedding, bathrooms and kitchens well equipped. Friendly welcome and advice to visit the area. Possibility to taste high quality products: wine and olive oil.

Guestbook comments from the manager

5 of 5 stars

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine (25 juin-2 juillet 2016) à La Tinaia! Accueilli avec des informations et conseils pratiques en plus de fournir des cartes des points d’attraits de la région. Les enfants (et les grands) étaient ravis de nager après nos journée de visites . (Florence, Pise, Sienne, Lucca, Vinci, Certaldo, San Giminano, etc.) et de retrouver le calme de la campagne. La vue sur la campagne de Toscane est superbe. Le lieu encore plus beau que sur les photos qui sont déjà superbes. Notre appartement (Il Bosco) était très spacieux et aménager avec excellent goût. Merci à Tina et Franco. À recommander ! note A++.

Wonderful stay in the hills of Florence

  • 5 of 5

This was everything one could expect for a wonderful stay in the hills outside of Florence. Tina and her husband are warm and genuine hosts that provided excellent accommodations and accurate and helpful driving advice and suggestions like tips on how to get the most of the usual Tuscan sites and towns near. We drove to the large supermarket (with a large and well lighted parking lot) in Scandicci nearby (10 min) and caught the new Florence tram into town. As a result, no parking issues in downtown Florence. Tina and her husband hosted a dinner outside under the arbor by the pool that was fantastic. The view from the pool overlooking Florence and Arno River valley were beautiful. I would highly recommend this property.

Country Oasis..clean, comfortable and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at LaTinaia for 3 nights and our only regret is that we did not book for a longer time. We hated to leave the peaceful beauty and wonderful accommodations. My husband, daughter and her husband stayed in the Il Bosco apartment and it was a perfect size for the four of us. The apartment and grounds are immaculate. Tina and Franco take such pride in their property and it shows in how well maintained the grounds and building are kept. We took the tram into Florence but needed a car to get into Scandicci. The countryside in the area is gorgeous! We were invited to have dinner prepared by Franco - don't miss the opportunity if it is offered! It was fun to dine with the other guests from around the world and the food was delicious! They also serve their wonderful wine from their own vineyards. I highly recommend this property! It is a gem!

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights near the end of our 18 day trip through Italy. We arrived from Milan to finish with 4 more days in Rome. It was absolutely perfect. We traveled with another couple and shared one of the larger apartments. It was easy to get to Florence (need to drive to the tram) and perfect to visit the surrounding hill towns. Franco and Tina are the best hosts. We had a group dinner with them along with others that were staying there. Highly recommend this in that Franco is a great cook. The property is stunning, the rooms are well kept and clean. We walked to the restaurant up the road. The wine made on premise is very good. We brought home a case. I would go back again as couples or family. Thank you Franco and Tina for an awesome stay.

Canadian Family loved La Tinaia

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days at La Tinaia, as a family of four with two girls (age 9 and 13) and rented one of the up stairs two bedroom units. And we would highly recommend it.

The property is nicely landscaped with a great pool, and large enough for kids to have fun. The location is up on a hill with a terrific view of the countryside.

Tina and Franco are terrific hosts, always approachable and available when you need them, but giving you the feel that this is your place to enjoy as a family. They welcomed having kids.

Although there are several apartments in the large Villa, we found that the property was very quite and relaxing, with people taking day trips and leaving the place empty if you wanted to have a day at the pool. The evenings were also quite with dinners out, so we rarely found that we were sharing the outdoor eating patio with anyone else, or perhaps one other couple or family.

The units have the necessary items, including Air Conditioning during hot times (for an additional / nominal fee).

We found the location idea for getting into Florence while still having a rural place to stay in, with a 15 min drive to Scandicci to get the tram and a comfortable 20 minute ride to downtown Florence. The tram arrived every 3-5 minutes at the station.

A car rental is a must for this location in our minds if you are planning to see places, and we found that AVIS allows you to book a year in advance without any deposit, and had very competitive rates.

The near by restaurant, 5 min walking distance up the hill, is great with a great outdoor courtyard to eat in. If you are planning to do a lot of your own cooking then a drive into Scandicci or Ginestra is required to get food.

Our daughter's grandmother came for a week and rented a one bedroom upstairs beside our unit. She did find the 37 stairs a bit taxing for her, so if people have issues with climbing up 37 stairs a few times a day, then make sure you request one of the main floor units at ground level (they'll be likely a bit cooler also).

The common kitchen on the ground level is great for preparing your dinners and eating in the garden area. The kitchen is well provisioned.

We would go back. Thank you Tina and Franco for your hospitality
