This is the completely independent half of a historic villa in Chianti, just 20 km from Florence. La Villa (five bedrooms, three bathrooms, two large dining rooms, a dining room, one large kitchen with fireplace, courtyard), while maintaining the look and the original furnishings of the art nouveau period, is equipped with all the comforts of a modern home (internet wifi, satellite TV).
The villa is surrounded by a large park with old trees, ideal for a relaxing time. The swimming pool is set in a large olive grove dominant position, pleasantly cool even in summer.
The villa is easily reached by bus lines SITA (bus stop 1 km).
The villa is perfectly preserved and offers the unique experience of living in a middle-class turn of the century. At the same time is very close to Florence (18 km) and the Chianti.
This farmhouse is perfect for a few families or three or four couples. There are five nice bedrooms, three bathrooms, and two large areas for gathering downstairs, including a great kitchen to cook and gather with friends. The house is beautifully but simply decorated, and the landscape is gorgeous.
We stayed here over Christmas, and when we had a few questions about how to use the fireplace, our host Nicola offered to come help us. Given the holiday, we thought that this was particularly generous found Nicola in general to be extremely welcoming and helpful. Nicola even helped a cab driver find the house when we were in a hurry to get to Florence. Overall, he was really the epitome of hospitable.
An excellent house in a very good location. The appartment is in san casciano, which is about half an hour's drive from Florence. There's also a good bus connection to the city, 10 minutes walk from the house. But other interesting destinations are also fairly within reach, Siena and Pisa for instance are abour 45 minutes by car. The house is recently renovated and very nicely deorated. It has all the amenities one could wish for and there is a big garden where our dog could play in, plus a beautiful view over the hills. The owner was very friendly and easy to reach. All in all we would definitely recommend this place !
