Would you like to stay in a real old hause of 1800's ? Old Tuscany hause is located on the street that leed Greve in Chianti to Valdarno,on a magnific hill between grapes and olive trees just 3 km from the famous Greve's square. It's a perfect destination for anyone planning to visit either the beautiful " chianti classic" area or cities of great historic and artistic importance such as Florence, Siena and Arezzo. The hause was build araund 1800, restored in the year 2000. Completely furnished in real Tuscany style, it has a double bedroom and a single with bunkbeds, livingroom with satellite television, sleaping sofa and fireplace,kitchen, 2 bathrooms,private garden, parking space.
The fireplace works perfectly and give to the hause a very romantic atmosphere anyway if you are cold, during winter time, there is heating that you pay at consume, we have a gas counter that we check togheter at your arrival. Stay at my hause and you will taste the real Tuscany way of living!!!!
July and August I prefer 1 week stay...Anyway always ask we will find solutions!!!
The garden in front of the hause is all for the guests use. The park space is private for the guests
The hill where the hause is situated is lighted from the sun all the day , grapes , olive treas and magnificent hills are the background for your stay at my hause… in 10 min drive beautiful villages as Montefioralle, Panzano , Greve in chianti. On saturday there is market in Greve in chianti and on sunday market in Panzano. If you want to taste a very good Pizza go to the village of Lucolena ( drive direction to Figline) at the " casa del popolo" can't miss it!!
Pets are welcome in my house, but smoking is for bitten inside and the cleaning fee do not include dishes's washing.
The reservation was canceled 9 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is a very charming stone home in Tuscany - exactly as I had hoped! It's spacious, well-stocked with supplies to make an Italian dinner (which we did), but we spent most nights w/ a charcuterie plate and wine on the patio, watching the sunset over Greve, Chianti (stunning). We watched the supermoon from the bed - the views are incredible! It's quiet and private, the bed is comfy, the two bathrooms are convenient, as is the washer (she even has clothes pins outside for drying). This is a wonderful home! Simona was a great communicator, answering questions and giving directions to the house (which is about 15 min drive from charming town center). We didn't get to meet her, and were greeted instead by her father-in-law, a wonderful man who helped get us settled. Our best memories from our Italy trip were the sunsets in this home. It's a great place, centrally located to get to wine-tasting regions (we visited San Gimingiano, Siena, Montepulciano). If you come from Florence, or drive the region, we recommend taking SR222, not the autostrada. Beautiful!
We were greeted by Simona's father in law who made us very welcome in the house.
It was exactly as described, comfortable with a magnificent view.
Only 50 mins by bus to Florence.
Also a great spot to explore many different locations.
This house is FANTASTIC. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a few days of peace in the countryside. My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier that we did. The house is perfectly situated only five minutes from a town with a coop and restaurants, but it is still remote enough to feel like you are in your own little paradise. There are also other towns easily reachable by car within 20-30 minutes with plenty of places to eat and walk around. The house is just as described with a kitchen including plenty of equipment for cooking (which we did lots of) and two bathrooms. Check in and check out were super easy. The master bedroom...what can I say about that view? What you see in the picture here is 1,000 times better in real life. The table on the patio is perfect for dinners outdoors and the whole yard is incredible for having a leisurely day. On boring days at home now, my husband and I mentally go back to that place and feel the calm we felt while staying there. I highly recommend this place!
Nous avons été très bien accueillis dans la maison de Simona, par son beau-père, à l'heure qui nous convenait (pour le départ également) et nous avons pu échanger très facilement des informations avec Simona pendant la semaine de notre séjour ; la maison est un peu moins spacieuse que les photos ne laissent imaginer, mais elle est jolie, propre, fonctionnelle et le jardin est très agréable et bien entretenu; nous avons petit déjeuné et diné sur la grande table de la terrasse presque tous les jours avec beaucoup de plaisir ; il y a une seule maison proche qui dispose également d'un grand jardin et l'endroit est très calme, sauf quelques voitures circulant sur la route le soir ; la maison est parfaitement située pour prendre la route vers Florence ou Sienne, depuis le village de Greve, à peu près à mi chemin entre les deux villes; la région est un enchantement ; le village est très vivant, il est situé à 5 minutes en voiture en contrebas et dispose de tous les commerces nécessaires. Petits bémols : il n'y a pas d'intimité entre les chambres à l'étage car la cloison de séparation ne monte pas jusqu'en haut de la charpente et suite à un orage assez fort nous avons subit pendant 48h une odeur d’égout venant de la fosse toutes eaux . Pour le reste c'était parfait.
Simona's farmhouse is very quiet and beautiful. It has excellent view, nice garden, and comfortable beds. We cooked every breakfast there, really enjoyed to have breakfast in the garden. The only negative is there is no wifi in the farmhouse, but it is understandable for that kind farmhouse.
Our stay in this Tuscan house was a great experience. The house was clean and spacious and had all the facilities you'd need for a decent stay including a great backyard where we had breakfast and dinner. It is in an ideal position close to the main areas like Siena and Firenze as well as some wonderful local towns. You can get down to Greve which is only a 3-4 min car trip and it has a nice warm locals and a supermarket, and a few good open air restaurants. Domenic, Simona's father in law, was very friendly and greeted us on time on both our arrival and departure. We were a family two adults and two teenagers and whilst the cottage was spacious, the double bunks were a bit tight for our kids. It was not an issue for us, but if you had smaller children, the top of the stairs would be a bit of a safety issue. All in all, a memorable stay and very easy communication with Simona, the host.
