About This Listing
Lovely view on the valley, sweet relax in the smelling garden under a very old tree tasting a good wine and then to visit Firenze, Pisa, Siena only 30 km far from here and medieval castles,little churchs ,winery,across the beautiful Chianti road.....
With views of the countryside of the Chianti hills, in Montespertoli, a small village 25 km from Florence, I offer this house is a barn recently restored and very comfortable, comprising: two beautiful bedrooms (one double and one triple) two bathrooms ( only one with shower) a large kitchen with fireplace and a colorful and fragrant garden all around for wonderful breakfasts and dinners.
The house is equipped with tv/sky, telephone, internet wifi, washing machine, oven and private parking.
It 's an excellent place for hiking in the area: you can visit ancient castles and medieval towns (San Gimignano, Certaldo, Volterra. .. the heart of Chianti), the great wine farms where to taste wine and the other special local products, the wonderful cities Pisa and Siena are only 40 km away from here, and finally the magic Florence really easy to reach in 30 minutes by car or train.
The train station is at 13 km far from here with quick and frequent connections with the cities.
The bus station is at 1,5 km far , in the village's square.
The price is for a night all the entire house :two bedrooms , two bathrooms, a lovely kitchen/dining room, a nice garden!!

It's possible reserve dinner if you ask with special local food hand made and wine!!
I live at the second floor of the house and it will be a pleasure for me give you all the informations and suggestions about the territory around (wine-festival ,concerts,events,itineraries…) that you’ll need to enjoy in Tuscany.
In a space of the garden there are my two dogs, Jack and Rose, really quiet and sociable animal :they live in their enclousure .
The territory that stretches from Val di Pesa, Val d'Elsa is inhabited by many Florentines who come to live in this country, because it is relatively close to the city, and at the same time allows to live away from urban pollution! Tourism also is mainly linked to numerous farms in the area that offer good food, great wine and great views.

The listing was as described and even more...so comfortable and charming with colorful rooms and furniture (a decidedly Italian look) and two delightful areas to sit in the garden and on the patio. The view of the Chianti hills was wonderful.
Antonella was such a warm, sweet and personable hostess, who was a delight to talk to. She was extremely helpful about sites to see in the area, restaurants, etc. Lovely lady! The special dinner she made for us, served in the garden, was typical Italian and delicious.There were three of us over-60 ladies, and the place was perfect for us. And the Tuscany hills and towns were even more wonderful than we'd imagined. We would definitely stay there again, if we make a return visit to the area. We'd definitely give the experience 5 stars.
Loved our stay with the delightful Antonella!
She and her very charming dogs were there to welcome us and she provided so much local information - including giving us daily touring ideas - aptly described as our 'homework'. Her accomodation is beautifully presented with sublime views over the surrounding countryside. In the kitchen were lots of 'basics' including condiments derived from her garden and that of her father. Truly a lovely experience of Tuscan hospitality. We'd love to return one day. Thank you Antonella!
Antonellas house and the picturesque, quiet surrounding are really amazing. We felt so comfortable and Antonella is such a nice, caring and considerate hostess. We absolutely loved staying at her beautiful house and the wonderful garden overlooking the tuscan landscape up to San Gimignano. The house is very cosy, clean and the kitchen is well equipped with all the things you need for cooking and eating. There is wifi, a (flatscreen) TV (which we didn’t use because sitting in the garden or in the cosy living room is the greatest joy and best distraction you can have), she has a stereo equipment with a collection of CDs, several magazines and many information about restaurants and sights in the vicinity. In the garden there are two sitting areas, surrounded by flowers, trees and herbs. On the ground floor of the house there are the living room, kitchen, dining table and a bathroom (this one is without shower), upstairs are the two bedrooms, which are very cosy with enough space, and the second bathroom with shower. On the next level is Antonellas flat. Antonella is so regardful that you hardly notice that she lives under the same roof too (she only uses the same staircase, but the rooms on the ground and first floor and the garden are for the guests only). She took care of us by communicating via messages asking if we needed anything. Antonella has a very sweet cat and two friendly dogs which were around the whole time. So, if you love cats and dogs, thats the perfect place.
My partner had his birthday and Antonella surprised us with sweet pastries which were placed on the table when we came back in the evening - this was so lovely of her! And not to forget the bottle of wine as a welcome present when we arrived.
Montespertoli is about 3 minutes away by car. There you can find a supermarket, some restaurants, bars and a gelateria.
So, enjoy your stay at this great place - it is perfect for recreation.
As this is my first ever airbnb experience and what a choice. We loved it. Antonella welcomed us at her lovely, stylish house. The house feels warm and cosy. The listing description was accurate. This is a great house, great views and perfect host. My son loved the cat. Thank you Antonella.
Antonella was present at her home after I arrived. I absolutely advise anyone to have GPS capability to get there. She greeted me and I was so relieved. I explained my situation and she immediately left to get me a working Italian SIM card. Antonella goes the extra mile and you have to acknowledge how much she tries to make her guests feel comfortable and succeeds. My significant other and myself would love to return to her home which was very accurately described. By the way the Wi-Fi works VERY well.
Antonella is a superb hostess! We had a fabulous time staying at her lovely home. It is a charming house with lots of special touches located in a wonderful part of the Chiant region of Tuscany. Antonella is warm and gracious and happily provides information about local places, restaurants, etc. which truly optimize the time here. The home is very comfortable and made to feel so very much like home, including the two gentle dogs who live here. For a small fee and a bit of advance notice, she cooked us a meal which was classically Tuscan and very delicious, actually the very best lasagna we have ever tasted! It is always the small "extra touches" wich make a stay special, and A stay here is among the top places we've been, and makes for wonderful memories. There are no negatives here!!!

About the Host, Antonella
Salve ,sono Antonella, sono un'insegnante di scuola elementare che adora i bambini, gli animali, la campagna . Fiorentina di nascita, abito in campagna da vari anni e conosco ogni angolo di queste splendide colline.
Sarò felice di indicarvi itinerari particolari e insoliti, svelarvi qualche piccolo segreto, luoghi dove assaggiare squisite ricette a lume di candela, dove ascoltare concerti all'aperto, dove noleggiare cavalli o passare un giorno alle terme.
