Terranuova Bracciolini House Rental Photos and Description

Old house restored

Sasso Orlando is an old stone farmhouse in the countryside of Valdarno Aretino at the foot of the mountain range of Pratomagno. The cottage was recently restored with great care and taste using materials of high value. The wooden ceilings, old brick arches, old terracotta floors and furnishings with unique antique furnishings give this home a very special charm. Beautiful interiors with lounge, large kitchen, living room with a loft, five bedrooms and four bathrooms. In front there is a large garden equipped with pergola, table and chairs parking is inside the property. The house is ideal for two families or friends who want to spend a holiday together. Fifty yards away, in a panoramic position on a hill, is located in a large park the large pool (15x7) with deck chairs, toilets and changing rooms.

Perfection....! in the most wonderful peaceful Tuscany

Left on 08/07/2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were an extended family, 3 generations with 6 adults and 4 young children ranging in ages from 2-7 years. Terranuova Bracciolini is a beautiful part of the world and Irene & her daughters ensured that we were so well looked after. The barns are spotless and although there is no air-con. It is not needed as the walls are thick and rooms cool. It was perfect for our family holiday - the pool was 50 m from the house with lovely shaded areas for relaxing. Lots of perfectly manicured green lawns for the kids to run around. We had bbq's most evenings. The layout worked perfectly for our family - with grandparetns sleeping on the lower ground floor. One set of parents & kids had a double and twin on first floor of the main barn and other set of parents & kids a double & twin in the barn extension, meaning we all had our own space. Irene prepared a wonderful welcome when we arrived with a hamper of local food and wine which was very welcome after travelling. She also spolit the kids with some homemade icecream on one hot afternoon and brought some extra toys for them to play with. Everything is in easy reach - all within an hour and wonderful scenice driving routes through the Tuscan hills and Chianti wine regions. It took us 2 1/2 hours to drive from Rome. A wonderful stay. I would HIGHLY recommend and have already recommended to family and friends.

We will be back!!! :-)

Voller Genuss mit allen Sinnen!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Häuser sind großzügig mit viel Liebe zum Detail und einer künstlerischen Note eingerichtet. Vier von fünf Schlafzimmer verfügen über jeweils ein eigenes Bad, das fünfte ist direkt mit dem Nachbarzimmer verbunden. Zwei Schlafzimmer sind nicht luftdicht von den Küchen abgetrennt, aber für Familien kein Problem.

Die Hausherrin ist supergastfreundlich, von hausgemachtem Wein bis zum Sugo wurden wir freudig überrascht.

Auf dem geräumigen Grundstück sind eine große Pergola und Platz für mehrere Autos. Zum Haus gehört auch ein schöner Pool zum Genießen der schönen Natur in angenehmer Atmosphäre

Mehrere Kühlschränke, Spül- und Waschmaschinen stehen zur Verfügung..

Wir haben erholsame Tage und wunderbare Abende verbracht, genossen die kraftvolle Natur, viel freie Zeit und ruhige Nächte unter Sternenhimmel, teilweise sogar am beleuchteten Pool.

Wer 5-Sterne-Luxus erwartet, sollte vielleicht noch andere Angebote prüfen, Sasso Orlando ist seinen Preis aber auf alle Fälle wert.

Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!!

Wunderschönes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren insgesamt 4 Erwachsene und 4 Jugendliche. Es waren insgesamt 5 Schlafzimmer. 4 davon mit eigenem Badezimmer. Alles war perfekt. Die Lage vom Haus ermöglichte Ausflüge nach Florenz, Sienna und Arrezzo. Das Haus und die Gartenanlage ist liebevoll gestaltet. Keine Selbstverständlichkeit. Auch die Gastfreundschaft von Irene. Am Pool hatte jeder seine eigene Liege. Ein Esstisch im Freien bietet Platz für 10 Personen. Wir haben oft gegrillt. Es stehen 2 Grills zur Verfügung. Es gab absolut nichts zu bemängeln! Gerne wieder einmal.

Perfekte Ferien!

  • 5 of 5

Als wir nach langen Stau etwas entnervt ankamen, waren wir schlichtweg begeistert!

Das Haus ist noch schöner als auf den Bildern, die Anlage sehr gepflegt und der Pool mit bequemen Liegen einfach phantastisch! Irene versorgt ihre Gäste ausgezeichnet: man findet einen vollen Geschenkkorb mit Spezialitäten vor, bekommt auch mal eine Portion Eis oder Antipasti. Außerdem nehmen 1 Hund und 4 Katzen schnell Kontakt auf. Toll ist auch: der Müll wird ebenfalls von der Hausfrau entsorgt.

Die Lage direkt an der Strasse ist eigentlich nicht störend; der nächste Ort mit Laden in ca. 2 km Entfernung zum Brötchenholen nicht zu weit.

Die Einrichtung ist sehr schön und geschmackvoll - vorallem das Wohnzimmer! Viel schöner als auf den Bildern! Außerdem: es gibt große Kühlschränke, einen großen Gasherd, genügend Geschirr und ein Grill ist vorhanden.Die Küche in der kleinen Wohnung ist größer als die der großen Wohnung. Beide sind aber auch bei Regen als Esszimmer durchaus nutzbar.

Deutsches Fernsehen findet man tatsächlich auch!

Vllt. sollte man erwähnen, dass die Räume nicht deckenhoch geschlossen sind. Es ist also durchaus hellhörig!!! Das wäre auch wirklich der einzige Kritikpunkt - sonst ist dieses Ferienhaus total empfehlenswert!

Wonderful stay in Sasso Orlando

  • 5 of 5

We are two friend families, used to spend together two summer weeks in private holidays cottages, for some years now.

Our stay in this house has been really wonderful:

- the houses are warm and cosy, decorated with taste, and equipped perfectly;

- the covered terrace is the perfect place for nice breakfasts and lunches, enjoying the calm and the surrounding garden;

- the pool, on the top of a (very small) hill, is completed by 2 covered terraces, from which you have a wonderful view on the valley;

- the pool is very large, allowing playing with the kids, but also fits if you prefer to run some lengths for sport;

- and, last but not least, Irene and her family are very nice, full of attentions, always looking for your wellness, without being intrusive at any time!

It is also a very good place to start the visits of several must-see locations like Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano and many very nice small villages around...

Sasso Orlando is clearly one of the 2 only locations we recommend to our relatives without any reserve and, despite the fact that we like to see different places every year, it is very likely that we will go back there!

A GREAT HOLIDAY HOME

  • 4 of 5

2 Families, 8 persons in total were travelling to Tuscany. In Sasso Orlando we had a great place to relax, lots of room for everyone and a very nice pool. The place is near trainstation and freeway exit, so we had easy acces to most of the tuscanys sights. If you are looking for a place were you can enjoy and use as a base in between sightseeing, this is the one for you.

Sasso Orlando is an ancient farmhouse in the countryside of Valdarno Aretino the slopes of the mountains of Pratomagno. Area of beautiful landscapes of vineyards and olive groves is particularly appreciated because they are within easy reach of the traditional destinations such as Florence, Siena, Arezzo and Cortona, but you should not miss the historic towns smaller, equally fascinating, and scenery of the Chianti hills, and to follow of the Crete Senesi, the mountains and forests of the Casentino National Park. In the area there are many Outlets of famous brands for shopping. A few kilometres from the house there are several stables for horses
