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.

Lovely apartment in the middle of nature. Francesca was a wonderful host! ... Don't miss to book a dinner at her house! Francesca cooks so deliciously and typically Italian! Not to forget her creations of jam! Wonderful! And very nice pool!
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!
Magnifique maison exactement comme sur les photos!
On reviendra pour profiter de la piscine car encore un peu froide!
tout simplement la maison telle que nous la rêvions en toscane en pleine montagne à une petite heure du centre de florence production d'huile d'olive à tomber, savon et confiture vue à couper le souffle silence et petit village en dessous très dépaysant
We spent two weeks at "La noce" and had a wonderful time! We enjoyed the beautiful location, the very spacious apartment with three bedrooms.
Francesca and her family are most helpful and friendly and we loved getting fresh tomatos and other vegetables.
It's a very dogfriendly place ... Although one should be a dog lover because there are many dogs around.
The matresses could have been a bit softer (we needed two nights to get used to them), the kitchen is ok (beautiful sink with beautiful view over the gorgeous property). The equipement (cuttlery) is rather purely equipped and there is money being safed on the wrong side as we are not talking about investing hundreds of euros.
Altogether, though, we enjoyed our stay very much and will certainly come back again with great pleasure!!
Francesca was a wonderful host and made our stay very enjoyable. The villa was well equipped and the pool area was fantastic. A great place to come home to after a busy day sightseeing in Florence. Easy to take the train from Londa (5 minute drive) to Florence. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a true Tuscan stay.
