About This Listing
Situated in unspoiled countryside with stunning views of our own orchard, olive grove and vineyards, it commands views the likes of which could grace the pages of any photographers.
Relax and unwind by the private pool surrounded by a large terrace and lawn, take walks or mountain bike rides through the splendid Tuscan scenery or take a horseback safari from a nearby stable for that authentic experience.
We have available 3 apartments that have been converted from an old hay barn. We have used only local stone and authentic materials to ensure that we keep the original features of the property in a truly Tuscan style. The barn is situated on the ruins of a medieval tower.
***** WE HAVE 3 APARTMENTS AVAILABLE SO IF THE DATES YOU REQUIRE SEEM UNAVAILABLE THEN PLEASE ENQUIRE THROUGH THE OTHER LISTING FOR THE SAME PROPERTY******
Each apartment has an independent entrance and a private outside area with table and chairs (each on different sides of the barn).
The apartments are fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The apartments are furnished in a Tuscan style with original pieces of restored furniture. Even the beds are prepared in the old Tuscan style using mattresses of wool and sheets produced in the traditional way, woven in cotton on the loom;
The area around the barn is magical; you can see (and hear) cuckoo’s and woodpeckers, deer and other birds and wild animals. We even have a young fox who visits the farm each evening entering in the kitchen looking for food.
The swimming pool is set amid an oasis of green with a large patio area complete with umbrellas, tables and chairs and sun loungers in teak complete with mattresses.

We had a lovely stay at La Noce di Fransesca. Francesca is a friendly host, who gave us a warm welcome upon arrival. The appartment is spacious and well equiped, and even despite the hot weather it stayed nice and cool. The garden with pool is a gem with great views on the Tuscan hills.
We would definately recommend a stay at La Noce di Francesca for anyone looking for a relaxing stay in Tuscany!
A secluded private retreat.
Pool is absolutely stunning, a perfect get away or quiet pause for anyone touring the country.
Add is accurate, drive from Florence a bit longer than stated, grab groceries en route.
Francesca was incredibly warm and welcoming making our stay in this magicalocation even more special. The beautiful haybarn has been sympathetically restored with great style using local materials but with luxuries j clouding a dishwasher and washing machine. The peace & quiet was very much needed, spending time by the tranquil pool before heading off the the fabulous local eateries has made a holiday we will never forget. A car is essential - we visited 3 local restaurants and our favourite was Il Ritrovo in Rufina as recommended by Francesca - we went twice out of our 4 evenings. The welcome, service, food and buzzy atmosphere is very special. The local supermarket in Londa has all you need including wonderful local wines, cheeses & meat. We shall certainly return next year if my boyfriend goes again to the MotoGP at Mugello which is a short half-hour drive away ( while I relaxed in the hot sun by the pool). A fabulous and unforgettable mountain top break with fabulous views. So sorry to leave and hope to return.
Francesca was a fantastic host and was extremely helpful with helping book a restaurant and some wine tastings - handy she is a trained sommelier too!
The apartment, the pool, in fact the whole place was just beautiful. The views at sunset were spectacular. I'd highly recommend staying here to anyone looking to relax and unwind. It is in fact much lovelier than the pictures portray it.
Top tip: make sure you buy some of Francesca's home-made olive oil – it's heavenly. She has a little shop with a few essentials, the wine is also very lovely.
The villa was perfect, spacious, clean and in great Tuscan style. This was the perfect place to unwind, relax and sit around the pool and soak up the sun. The view from the terrace & garden on to the country side was spectacular.
Francesca was the perfect host, always very friendly and happy to help with anything.
We would definitely return any time.
Great Place to relax and unwind! Our one bed room apartment was beautiful, clean with a very tasteful Tuscan décor. Sunsets are great as well. If we find out way back this way, we will stay here again!
Londa, is not a big place, so there are not many restaurants, we shopped at the local butcher shop, produce market and grocery store, it felt so good. If you ask Francesca ahead, she will get the coal going (for a small fee) and you can cook your meal on the fire. Complimentary wine, olive oil, peach jam and tomatoes were also great, we used them all! It was a very welcoming and generous gesture!
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment. Communication with Luca went perfect and smooth. We really felt at home immediately at Francesca's farmhouse, the rest of the family was very kind and helpful as well. The location is peaceful and beautiful, the apartment is cosy and clean. We loved the garden and the pool as well, thanks a lot Francesca for everything!
