Il Vignolo is a very old house (its origin goes back to the 15th century) located on the main square of this small village. It’s a beautiful space where tourist can enjoy the real Tuscan lifestyle.
Casa di Vignolo (130mq- 7 people capacity- 3 bedrooms- 2 bathrooms) is a very old house, its origin goes back to the 15th century, the walls are in stone and the floor in traditional handmade “cotto toscano”.
The house has a total capacity of 7 places divided into three bedrooms over two floors. There are 2 double rooms and a twin bedroom. Two Toilets (one shared, one ensuite) with shower cabin.
Living area with a big fireplace, still the original one!!! (satellite TV with free channels); The kitchen space is fully equipped with fridge/freezer, cooker and oven, microwave, dish washer, coffee machine and it has any kind of cooking tools.
Small, efficient laundry room in the stair case.
There’s internet connection, wi-fi, included in the rent.
Veranda outside the house, with chairs ant table. It face the main square of the town: quiet and clean place!
The square is a pedestrian area so the place is particularly quiet.
There’s a free guide book that can give some information about the Valdarno area, such as train timetable to Florence and Rome; list of shops, restaurants and shopping malls in the area; and some maps to help people to move around. We think it can be a useful help for our guests to feel welcome and 'at home'.
We suggest our guest to rent a car because it's the most convenient way to travel around, and just nearby the house there are several free parking spaces. Anyway there are also public bus from the village to the main towns and cities around like Arezzo, Montevarchi or Siena, and the transport is quite cheap though not very frequent.
There is a very nice Public Swimming pool in the middle of the Tuscan countryside just 6 km from the village (ask owners on arrival).
Interaction with Guests
What we wish to offer our guests is to enjoy the living inside a traditional Tuscan house, to get to know the beautiful and famous Tuscan countryside all this with some of our suggestions, if requested, to make your journey as much comfortable and suitable as possible.
Pergine Valdarno is a very typical small village in Tuscany, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards.
While the village of Pergine Valdarno retains its “old time” charm it still offers all the modern conveniences such as a grocery, bakery, butcher shop, restaurant, bank, post office, pharmacy and police station.
The most important cultural towns are a short drive away, but don't forget to dedicate part of your time to explore the beautiful Valdarno valley: there are some old villages that conserve the old Etruscan time names, such as Loro Ciuffenna, Gropina or Cennina, with castles and romanic churches, surely deserve your visit and can really make your holiday unforgettable.
Heating costs are not included in the rent fee. Ask for more details!

About the Host, Edoardo
I'm a young man who's wish is to carry on the family business on renting summer houses to tourists.
I speak a quite good English, I love music, cooking and hanging out with friends.
I love to meet people from all over the world, I'm curious to exchange and share experiences, cultures and different traditions.
I studied hotel management to learn how to run this type of business and on how to deal with people's wishes and expectations. But our purpose it is not to have a formal way to receive our guests like in hotel, we most believe in offering a familiar and authentic journey through the Tuscan life and countryside, and to make people feel welcome and find a "home" far from their home.
This property is located in a small town, Pergine valdarno, removed from tourist's crowds: it's the perfect opportunity to experience the real Tuscan lifestyle of living in a small town, where the locals are very welcoming and eager to help out foreigners. This town is also in the middle of a famous and charming region, really close to three of the most famous Italian cities: Florence, Siena and Arezzo.
In the town you will find a small assortment of shops, coffee bars, restaurants, pharmacy, food and even a bakery and butcher! All this only 2 minutes from the property.
For a relaxing and quiet visit to Tuscany have a look at our offer!
My Best Regards,
