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.

This was our second week in the Villa and it continued to be wonderful as we gained confidence on driving on the mountain roads - there is renovation on the property of another Tuscan house to be Francesca's restaurant - it will make a visit after these are complete perfecto
Our stay on Londa is exactly as the pictures show - the location is somewhat remote but perfect for getting away from the city. Acess to major cities inc Florence is only 43 minutes away and much easier than driving in - a car is essential - Even to drive to the station about 20 minutes away - The place is surrounded by olive groves and lush green grass studded with with daisies ,a multitude of bird life and a valley view that leaves you speechless as the sun sets - our host Francesca was so lovely and helpful from making reservations in the best local restaurants to recommending place to drive to - A must see is Poppi Castle and the local town of Londa is picture post card perfect with walking trails for the more active,
The villa is very spacious and beds comfortable - we cooked many times in our villa as the gas cook top and large oven was perfect . Buying food from Dicamano coop ( supermarket ) had excellent range of gourmet and essential groceries inc wine, bakery and butcher but don't miss the local bakery with the most wonderful choice of cakes and pastries and have a coffee at the local bar Everyone we met was kind and helpful despite our limited Italian . It was a blissful experience overall with only minor problems with the house wi fi not always behaving .
From the initial inquiry and throughout our stay, Luca and Francesca were very responsive, helpful and enjoyable. The location is beautiful, and the house was very comfortable. We most enjoyed our dinner prepared by our host Francesca- amazing night! We would stay here again.
Nous avons trouvé une maison conforme aux photox et un jardin encore plus exceptionnelle que dans nos projections !!!
Merci pour l'accueil avec le panier de produits de la région. La maison est spacieuse et très bien équipée, nous étions 3 couples et nous avions chacun notre espace. Une belle maison pour des vacances entre amis, nous gardons de super souvenir de cette semaine.
Wonderful & charming accommodation! Very well located in beautiful nature with great view (sunset!). Francesca is a wonderful and friendly host. The kitchen was sufficiently equipped (no high tech kitchen equipment but it wasn't needed either - you can cook enough meals without them). In my opinion the mattresses were very comfortable (I guess it depends what you are used to). We all wished for more days to stay here, in this divine place!
