In the southern part of Florence in the direction of Siena (Heart of Tuscany) a majestic farmhouse rises on a hill at the crossing point of a valley, la Valle a Polvereto.
Fully integrated in its rural surroundings the restoration of this characteristic Tuscan accommodation was completed in 2004 resulting in a 28000 sq metres property including several terraces.
On top of this hill you find a charming holiday home supplied with all the necessary requirements. There is absolute privacy without being isolated. It offers beautiful views over the Chianti vineyards and beyond.
This is a farmhouse that dates back to 1200 surrounded by olive groves and Chianti vineyards in the Chianti Hills. A very peaceful place for relaxing and yet very near to art centres such as Florence 20 km and Siena 55 km .
The farmhouse has been very well restored by its present owners, keeping the original Tuscan design. It has been divided into spacious apartments.
At guests disposal:
Ideal for large groups, if you rent all the apartments you would have the exclusive use of the villa.
The property also offers a large room with kitchen, where the guests can dine together.

Review for stay from 19 July 2011 to 26 July 2011
The place has a very beautiful view and if you want to stay in a central area in Tuscany this is a very good point. It seems that the property has had better days. The conservation of the gardens and external area is poor. The reception by the properties was disapointing. No welcome in any way. Every single information had to be inquired for. The house hasn't fans and in the summer it's hot and have mosquitoes.
Review for stay from 06 July 2009 to 13 July 2009
Fabulous, secluded and idyllic place. Our villa, Mimosa, was ideal for family of 5, smallish living room area but, hey, we were outside on the terrace all the time so didn't actually use it. Fantastic swimming pool, but the best part of this property is the terrace that goes around all the properties. with nicely dilapidated deck chairs and a view to die for. Sitting there, glass of local chianti in hand, looking at the vineyards hanging with grapes, you could have stayed for ever. Looks a bit like a road but cars are not able to get around to it. Which means you have to lug your bags round. Top bedroom in Mimosa was great fun for our 7 and 11 year old girls, accessed via a spiral staircase, but quite exposed and not suitable for young children, as the website points out. Do I have any criticisms, not really: no local shops, not quite enough cutlery, but small points. Overall five stars. Within easy driving distance of great Tuscan sites, 40 mins to Florence, close to Sienna, San Gimignano, and Monteriggioni (definitely worth a visit). I haven't posted any photos, you will just have to go yourself to find out how chilled this place is.
