  • We really enjoyed our staying at Leonardo. The view is picturesque and we were warmly greeted. The pool was welcome after a hot day driving through the chianti. We definetly recommand this place.

  • We had a fantasic six days at this place. It is just as beautiful as in the pictures, with a nice view from the terrace and swimming pool. We used the swimming pool quite a lot because it is very clean and well-maintained. You share it with the people from the other airbnb appartment but in our case they were often gone for day trips so we had an almost-private pool. Leonardo is very nice and really tries to make your stay very comfortable. The appartment is not as small as we expected and it has a nice kitchen and bathroom. The location is good, we had a car but still we went to Florence by train because it was more convenient. The region does not have the most famous Tuscany highlights but it is a beautiful area. Highlights such as the Chianti region, Florence and Siena are easy day trips from here.

  • What a great location!! We had a perfect stay at Leonardo's house, with a beautiful view over Toscany. The veranda and pool were awesome. This spot is ideal if you would like to discover the Chianti wine area with lots of winetasting nearby (we recommend the region around Greve in Chianti at less than an hour drive). Florence is very close (train station close to the house, and faster than by car), Siena at 1.5 hour drive, but definitely a must see. Thank you Leonardo and family for being such a pleasant host. We would love to come back once

  • The host and its old house were just as expected, gracious and very Tuscany type. Two things worked against a more perfect stay, which could not be helped, I guess. The heat and the fact they were digging a swimming pool next door and making an unwelcome noise. Nevertheless, a little quieter and a little cooler would have been the perfect deal. People are kind, helpful, the pizza by Leonardo's brother was exquisite and worth tasting.

    Christiane2016-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Leonardo is the perfect Host! Really kind and explains everything. The house is complete and very romantic. Balcony, close to swimming pool and very nice decoration. The place is beatifull and the view is amazing. Also the trainstation to Florence is very close (walking distance) and you have to take the train to Florence, not the car. Leonardo has also lot of information for to do, a big help. Parking is easy and the place is very quit. If you go to Toscany, absolutly visit this place. Thank you Leonarde for being an amazing host for us, we have enjoyed our days very very much!

    Sjoerd2016-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful home. This is not only a room but an entire separate cottage with its own kitchen and private bathroom. Leonardo was very helpful, picking me up and dropping me off at the station. Lovely home, cute town and incredible views. Wonderful place to relax by the pool. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for a lovely few days!

    Adele2015-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Leonardo's holiday home was fantastic. Great views, comfortable apartment, and most of all I loved the outside area. It was great to sit out side either at night or in the morning, eat breakfast, and take in the view. We took two day trips, one to Florence and the other to Arezzo. I recommend Arezzo, favorite city so far in Italy! You also have to go to his brother's place (pizzeria) and get the 4 fromaggi pizza, very delicious. Definetely recommend this airbnb to everyone!!

    Laura2014-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Leonardo was an excellent host and the apartment is just as beautiful as the pictures. If you would like to be locked away with a beautiful scenery and nothing to do but rest and relax this is your place. The pool was an extra bonus to go with the majestic scenery. The shower in the apt was one of my favorite things. Clean and the perfect water pressure. If you do not like insects this is not the place for you. Due to the environment of this place Mosquitos, spiders, bees, and ants are everywhere outside and at times they venture inside. But not a reason to not try this place out!!!

  • Eleanora is the warmest person full of life, love and vitality. She made us feel right at home, and rather than walking away from a host, we left Tuscany having made a new friend. All the reviews are absolutely spot on and if you are in Tuscany, you absolutely have to spend a few days here. Purpose of our Italy trip was to fulfill our dream of cooking in Tuscany. Apart from her absolutely gorgeous house, Eleanora's cooking classes are NOT to be missed. What she teaches are not just the skills of cooking, but the science behind it, ensuring your understanding and guaranteed success in future. Dishes are all things that we can cook when we go back home, and we left with reluctant heavy hearts. Thank you Eleanora and Paula, we hope to visit again!! xxx

    Renae2015-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a lovely stay, Eleonora. The house was comfortable and the cooking lesson very informative and delicious. Slept like a baby. The bus is confusing to get there from Florence but eventually you find your way and the views are incredible on the way up. Nice break in the country from traveling across Italy.

    Lindsay2015-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Before I stayed at Eleonora's I read all of the reviews and couldn't believe that she could be so incredible, but she was. She opened her home to us, taught us how to cook in her amazing kitchen, served breakfasts that will blow your mind, all with a fantastic spirit and energy. And her assistant Paula was incredibly sweet and helpful. The location is 40 minutes from Florence and you definitely need a car. Overall it was a great experience and I would love to visit again!

    Jon2016-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Eleonoras B &B. We took the cooking class that was spectacular and we did a wine tour. She was a warm and gracious host and the house was so cute!

    Amy2016-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Echoing so many reviews that have already been written. Eleonora's B&B is an oasis. We went for only 2 nights and mainly went to take a cooking class with Eleonora. It was our favorite part of the trip. Eleonora did an incredible cooking class with my husband and I, which ended in the most sweet and romantic dinner for 2 of cheese soufflé, spinach and ricotta ravioli, and baked peaches. We loved getting to know Eleonora in our short stay and thoroughly enjoyed her company. She is the perfect host, gregarious, funny, fully of wisdom. She walks the line of company and host perfectly. Her breakfasts are to die for (eggs with cumin and garlic, fresh caprese salad, crepes, omelets, fruit, cheese, meats). And we slept better here than any other hotel or apartment on any other part of the trip. Eleonora also has an incredible housekeeper, Paola, who was always so kind and helpful throughout our stay.

    Katherine2016-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible B&B experience! Excellent cookery class! Eleanora was so welcoming and her attention to detail really made our stay special. Her home is beautiful and charming (far more than what the photos show). We stayed overnight and did the short cookery class on arrival. Although we arrived a little late by bus, Eleanora was very flexible and continued with the class at a nice pace. Dinner (from what we had made) and breakfast were superb, particularly because they included items made by Eleanora herself. For a cosy, relaxing getaway, I would highly recommend our host: she has real passion for hospitality and teaching!

    Eileen2014-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our week staying with Eleonora was a fabulous experience. Eleonora is the perfect hostess, friendly, warm, helpful and always up for a chat and a laugh. The house is lovely and set in peaceful gardens. It is better than the pictures portray. Our favourite time of day was breakfast out in the garden and it was a relaxing start to every day. Eleonora cooks the most amazing breakfasts. We did a cookery class and it was loads of fun and the food was delicious, enjoyed with great company. The bus to Florence is down the road. If using the bus, you catch a few different ones from bay 10 at the Florence bus terminal. We loved Florence and we loved our week in Tuscany and hope to find our way back there again one day. Thank you Eleonora for such a lovely experience.

    La Felce, Tuscany, Italy

    Romantic, Family friendly, Historically unique, Magical atmosphere, 360 degree views of the countryside and Florence. Convenient location: perfect for honeymoon/anniversary, family trips, friends traveling together, Chianti and Tuscany explorations.
    THE APARTMENT This 12th tower apartment is the "hat" of a small castle in the hills south east of Florence, Italy. Totally private, includes living room with 1 single sofa bed, kitchenette with eating area (table extends to seat 8) , a large bathroom with bathtub and shower. Can include 1 or 2 bedrooms, depending on your needs: the main one with queen size bed, right in the top of the tower (very romantic!) ; the other (optional, small extra charge) with a double bed that can be split into 2 singles upon request. And the tower terrace, of course, with its 360 degree view! There are stairs and more stairs to get to the tower apartment, but that is what makes it so private, romantic and panoramic. There is unlimited WIFI, and books in English too. As mentioned on some of the reviews, this place is also child friendly: toys, books, a trunk full of dress-up clothes, safe private gardens, a magical tower, friendly cats (OPTIONAL!), and the occasional babysitter on the premises. Also special CHILD FRIENDLY COOKING CLASS available. (See "additional offers" further below). THE BUILDING There is a common area with books, movies and a Baby Grand Steinway made in 1899 piano accessible to guests. The estate includes one shaded and one sunny garden, and a small olive grove shared with the other families in the building. A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY The tower portion dates back to 1146. The rest of the building was added on in the 1400s , 1600s and 1800s. Many lives were saved during WWII by my grandfather who risked his own, by offering hiding and shelter to total strangers in this villa. We want to continue this tradition by welcoming people from all over the world. Our children are the 6th generation in this home. We live in the building, right at your doorstep! You have all the privacy (the tower apartment is all for you, with private entrance, bathroom and kitchen etc) but we are a knock away if you need help, wish to borrow some food or kitchen utensils, or are simply in the mood to share a glass of wine or cup of tea or coffee with us, and hear the history of this place. We may be on vacation a few weeks in the summer, or a week end here and there. When so, our cousins who lives on the premises will make sure you have assistance in case of need.
    THE VILLAGE Local deli, freshly baked bread, cheeses, wine and beer shop, veggie stand, great cappuccino and top butcher of the valley all right across the street, 5 minutes walk. NO PROPER RESTAURANT WALKING DISTANCE, but you can buy all the food you need to make your own meals, and the local butcher also offers lasagne and grilled chicken and beverages, to eat there or take home. Very nice family style trattoria only 5 minutes driving from home, serving great pizza, pasta, steak and more Italian food. - OUR VILLA IS NOT ON THE HIGHWAY AS IT APPEARS ON THE MAP! The tower is the top of the villa which sits on top of the hills on top of the village...Great views and breeze, but only 5 minutes walk from the little shops, (veggies, meats, freshly baked breads, cappuccino, and a rotisserie which also serves meals etc). A community center/bar will serve caffe and aperitivi. Great panoramic terrace. Plenty of hikes start from here.
  • The Medieval watchtower apt was such an amazing place to stay! Beautiful views, a perfect location to explore Tuscany, and some furry bonuses if you like cats! We had dinner the night we arrived at the watchtower and Marco made us the best meal of our entire trip. This is an amazing place to stay, highly recommended!

    Julie2013-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • I resoundingly echo everything that's been said by my fellow guests: the watchtower is an absolute treasure and Majla is the consummate host. This is the type of place you dream of staying in when in Tuscany: rich with history; stunning views; peaceful and picturesque; sweet, TINY village (but with coffee, wine, and a market two minutes from the villa); lots of space for a family but cosy and romantic enough that it's also perfect for a couple; great location for exploring the Tuscan countryside but close enough to Florence that you don't have to worry about travelling back. Majla and her family were heading out on their own vacation the day we were to arrive -- despite this, she accommodated a last minute request to check-in early and took the time to painstaking show us all the watchtower has to offer and to make us a reservation for Nuovo Ranch (where the food was great, by the way). If you have the opportunity, don't waste it. Just go.

    Usra2015-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • the best experience we had in italy was staying in the watchtower. the hosts are great - they are ready to help with whatever you need, and wont bother you if you just want to enjoy your time here. we felt at home almost immediately - and what a home it is! the view from your private rooftop is amazing. we tried to have as many lunches as we could up there. the apartment has everything you need, and more, filled with lots of small beautiful items. the town is very quiet with nice walking hikes you can do, and has a few shops to get you by. florence is 15 minutes away by car. we left happy and envious of the children that grew up there!

    mark2013-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wished we had stayed longer. An amazing place in an amazing part of the world. Stay with 100% confidence. Malja couldn't be nicer and even helped us with laundry. We had a car and the location is superb for exploring.

    Jeff2015-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our group – four adults and two babies – stayed with Majla and her partner Marco in late November. The stay in the small castle overlooking the Tuscan hills was one of the best experiences of our whole two-week Italy trip. The castle was cozy and we could tell it had been lovingly decorated. It had everything we needed from towels, kitchen utensils, books, extra blankets etc. It was also extra special to know we were staying in a place that had been used as a hideaway by Majla's great grandfather during WWII. The castle was built in 1174 but had been renovated, even though it was cold sleeping in the tower at night. That shouldn't be an issue during high season summer. Also the stairs are not very baby friendly so you need to be on guard. There is also a beautiful private rooftop terrace where we sat and drank our wine. The views were breathtaking. The highlight of the stay was the incredible pasta making class we did one night with Majla and Marco where we made ravioli, angel hair and tagliatelle. The class was held in their gorgeous apartment conveniently located downstairs. We were able to bring our babies and they made us feel incredibly welcome - even letting our babies take a snooze on their couch in the middle of the class. At the end, they also cooked us some Tuscan side dishes which we enjoyed with our pasta that night. There was good conversation and lots of Chianti to drink. Our babies thoroughly enjoyed their angelhair! The town is small and there's not much to do but there are very good and affordable shopkeepers right across the street if you want to shop so you can cook your own meal. Another tip is to take a taxi from Florence to the castle if you are a big group or if you have big luggage. It cost us around 30 EUR. This was a one of a kind stay and Majla and Marco are good people. They even kindly offered to drive us to/from town.

    Linda2015-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best place we stayed in Italy. We loved it.

    Sabina2015-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to visit flotenxe and chianti! Fantastic apartment (terrace in the tower!) and very kind hosts...

    matteo2013-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I visited Florence on our honeymoon and stayed with Majla and her family in the Watchtower. This was our fourth city in our honeymoon to Italy and it was by far our favorite place to stay. We were treated so well by them and the place is exquisite. We could not have asked for a more welcoming host and hostess and the town and countryside were absolutely gorgeous. Majla helped us to fix our train tickets and spent her own time and effort to get things figured out for us and her family was so nice letting us borrow movies, giving us little things that we didn’t have so we could cook, and much more. In addition, the cooking class that we took with Majla and her daughter was so much fun and one of our greatest memories of our trip, and the food that they made for the special dinner was delicious! I would recommend a stay here to anyone looking for a nice, quiet, welcoming place to stay, as long as you don’t mind the bus ride into the city.

  • From first to last we were greated with great warmth and hospitality. Cristina was friendly, welcoming and offered plenty of advice on where to visit and dine. She works in Chianti and has a wealth of knowledge through her job in a vineyard - including about Chianti's wines. The apartment had everything you'd expect and a whole lot more. Lovely pool towels, loungers, a shaded gazebo, floats, woggles, inflatable chairs, balls.. etc.. which our daughter loved. Beyond this there were ample towels, bedding, cooking utensils etc.. a beautiful tart to welcome us, fresh fruit, flowers, wine (expertly selected).. We asked after a bike for our daughter to ride on - and the perfect bike was there when we arrived - which our daughter loved cyling through the olive, walnut and fruit trees. The gardens, pool borders and orchards make for a great setting - well looked after, fragrant and beautiful to be amongst. The pool is great. There is a tuscan barn, which is well shaded and great for lunches or dinner. As it's all on the top of the hill, most of the time there were breezes through the gardens and apartment to cool things down. La Felce is a short drive from Florence - around 20 odd minutes along the road and you are in the outskirts, although La Felce is firmly in the countryside and away from it all. Along the road are small villages with butchers, bakers etc.. The baker in the village 1 minute down the hill is small but great if you like tuscan breads, crackers, pizzas, foccaccia, pastries.. changing every day. We miss it all already. And there is ice cream in Antella, along with a great butchers, slightly further away, but with green grocers, super market etc. to make it worth the journey. South of La Felce it's quick to get to Greve, or a little longer to Siena, Arezzo etc.. As the expressway is a few minutes drive most places are about as easy to get to as they can be. We visited the vineyard where Cristina works. The wine tasting and tour she organised was fantastic. Great wines, with a chance to learn about the differences between them. We enjoyed the opportunity to learn more and in such a beautiful setting. We had a fantastic time. La Felce country house is well located and has a great setting. However the thing that sets it apart is Cristina and her families warmth and desire to make sure that your holiday is the best it can be - sharing ideas, things they think you'll like and just making sure it's all going well. Thank you!

  • We had a very comfortable stay at this rural idyll. Cristina's apartment is better than the pictures. The apartment was great, well equipped, comfy large bedrooms and living rooms. Cristina's offered us breakfast, fresh fruits and even a bottle of white wine. The area is fresh at night so we slept well. Despite we stayed just two days we enjoyed the swimming pool which is clean and surrounded by the typical Tuscany landscape. We definitely hope to be back! It's just half an hour from Florence and 10 minutes form The Mall.

  • Cristina is a fabulous host. Her warm, inviting personality and beautiful home made our stay in Tuscany a memory to treasure. The house was very clean and well appointed and the lovely pool, outdoor dining area and table tennis patio add to an outstanding ambience. It was a perfect place for our family of 5 to use as a base while we explored Florence, Lucca and Siena. Cristina went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful stay. I highly recommend 'The Country House in La Felce'.'

  • Cristina is an amazing host. The house is at a beautiful location in Toscana, 30 minutes drive from Firenze. The house itself is warm, clean and has everything you need. Overall well worth it. But the most special thing about the place is definitely the host. Would definitely consider coming back in the future.

  • Great place in Tuscany coutryside, quiet and beautiful! A wide garden and a historical house , which was well decoed and equiped.Don't be nervous when you are in the remote area cause you have a so enthusiastic host who has a very high level of life-taste. She can give you suggestions almost on every aspects, which must be helpful for you. I missed a lot of excting points due to my daughter's disorder, I will definitely come back to compensate this trip in the near future. Thank you Chirstina, hope your son take a great exmination!

  • This is a wonderful, very clean place and is so relaxing and welcoming. Cristina is the perfect hostess and went above and beyond expectation to make sure our stay was great. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed including fresh fruit from her garden! We are a family of 5 and were very comfortable -- the place is quite spacious. The pool has breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside. It was the perfect stay for us to slow down and relax after some busy sightseeing in Rome, Sorrento and Capri. We also enjoyed jogging from small town to small town taking in the local nature and views. We HIGHLY recommend this place and hope to return some day!!

  • Cristina is a wonderful host! One of the best I have ever had! She is gentle and very hospitable. She was always here to help and to give some advice about our stay and our trip. She also organized a wine tasting for us at the beautiful place called Rocca di Castagnoli where she works and we have spent an unforgettable time there! The house is super clean and very very beautiful. Very big garden and a nice terrace with a barbecue - we really enjoyed it! The area is a wonderful Tuscanian village, very peaceful and calm. I would definitely come back!

    Anastasia2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place will not disappoint. So beautiful! Cristina was the host with the most. We were greeted with 2 bottles of wine and goodies. It was 95 degrees when we arrived and the pool was ready to go! Florence was about 30 min drive. We went into town with no problem, came home to a bottle of wine Cristina left with a cute note. You must stay here just like the pictures!!!

    If you look for a place that combines the sweetness of the tuscan hills with the opportunity to admire the beauties of Florence in less than 30 minutes, this is the perfect choice. The closest village -5 mins by feet- is provided with various stores! Perfect for two people, you can also use the coach in the kitchen for other two.
    In San Donato in Collina your holiday meets the peace of the tuscan country side and the olive trees, the vineyard and the small biologic garden. Few tens of meter further begins the pronvincial park of Fontesanta with the woods, the paths and various local animals.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful time in Paolo's house. It is set on a hill by San Donato in Collina and the view of Tuscany is breathtaking. Our host welcomed us on time and upon arrival there was a bascet with local products Staying in the peak of summer season, the hot days were really rough, but due to a country si position, we had a fresh climate.

  • We were more than happy with this place! Its a very quiet and relaxing setting. We planned a few days in Florence, but I didn't even really want to leave the area around the house. Great for walks and hikes, fresh air, beautiful scenery, olive trees, grape vines.. the place is actually more comfortable than the photos look too! and very very clean .. I want to come back. surprised it was so close to Florence. Also, Paolo is a great guy.

  • Paulo's place is located in the beautiful village of San Donato in Collina. Only half an hour from Florence, and has wonderful views just outside your doorstep. Can be somewhat difficult getting around if you do not have a car, but is perfectly suitable if your wanting a relaxing time in the Tuscan hills with day trips to Florence. We were provided with recommendations on what to do and explanations on how to get around on check in. As well as a delicious basket of food and wine. Cooking and washing facilites were useful also. Only negative was no wifi.

    Joseph2015-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was fantastic. Paolo picked us up in the car on arrival in the village (really helpful) and gave us a welcome basket on arrival with fruit and pasta. So lovely! The apartment was great, clean, more spacious than I was expecting and with beautiful views. We didn't have a car, so caught the bus into Florance on some days - really easy to do, and was so lovely to come back to the apartment and relax in the quiet hills after a busy day of sightseeing! Definitely recommend and would love to come back.

    Sophie2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Having greeted us in the pouring rain with a smile and a welcome basket of local goodies. Paolo made us feel right at home. His tip to make time to see Seina was perfect as my wife and I might have missed out on a great day of sightseeing. I definitely would recommend staying here. The view from the front yard was breath taking.

  • My stay at Eleonora's was brilliant! She is a fabulous host who really looks after those staying there - I got multiple lifts to the station from her on top of everything else, so great. Th cooking class she runs is an absolute MUST if you stay here, you get to eat the amazing food you learn to cook while enjoying a nice glass of wine and it's just bliss. The room itself is exactly as pictured, the only thing I could fault is that I didn't see a rubbish bin in the room at all (though I may have been blind). The location is as picturesque as it gets, it's just nice to walk through. 12/10 would stay again. Grazie Eleonora!

    Pat2017-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • From the first time we saw Eleonora's place on Airbnb, we knew we wanted to stay there. It was beautiful. Despite our inability to check-in within the window stated, Eleonora worked around that and offered great directions for us to find the place. The house was truly out of a magazine with the attention to detail in everything, especially the kitchen. The highlight of our trip was the cooking class where Eleonora was very patient with my lack of skills and my tendency to mix things with my hands as opposed to utensils. I actually feel like I learned a few things that I could use in our kitchen. We've done other cooking classes, but they pale in comparison to what you'll experience with Eleonora. We had a great stay and would love to come back if we are back near Florence in the future. Thank you Eleonora!

    Nicholas2015-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Eleonora was an absolute joy! She has a beautiful home on gorgeous grounds and she has a zest for life. She opened her home up to is as if we were her friends and gave us loads of information on what to do in the area, etc. thank you, Eleonora for such a great start to our honeymoon!

    Emily2014-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at B&B Cucina was wonderful! Eleonora was very responsive to messages ahead of time, providing us with options of activities both provided by her and in the area. When we arrived, she immediately came out to greet us as we drove up and graciously took our bags into the house. She gave us some tea to decompress from the drive and made us feel right at home. We opted for the full package she offers, including a wine tour, tasting, cooking class, and four course dinner with wine pairings from the tour. It made for a wonderful day! The wine tour was our absolute favorite part - the villa where the winery is located was beautiful and made for such a unique experience. Eleonora's cooking class was very well done and informative. She was very patient and gave useful advice to perfect our techniques. She accommodated what we wanted to make, which was fresh pasta, and gave us great recipes to bring back home. It was a wonderful respite from the busy touristed cities of Venice and Florence we had come from. I would highly recommend staying with Eleonora if you find yourself looking for a Tuscan retreat!

    Emily2015-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Eleonora's place is all the pictures and description describe and much more. If you think Tuscany couldn't be more enchanting, then wait until you stay at Eleonora's La Cucina. If you have a passion for food and relaxing, soon you'll feel like you've arrived at your second home. I'm a walker, so I came without a car. While there was plenty to keep me busy, if you're not a serious walker then you'll find a care helpful. The area is known for it's truffles. If you love truffles and come during the right times of year, you'll enjoy all that goodness for very reasonable rates by local farmers. If you're looking for a communal, homey and cheerful place to stay, then I'd highly recommend a stay(URL HIDDEN)

  • The house is beautiful and the kitchen is the best part! The old matches the modern and everything is tasteful. The breakfast was much more than a simple breakfast-with fresh pressed orange juice and every day a different speciality from Eleonora. Eleonora is a proffessional cook. She made the cooking lesson a fun experience and we learned many little tricks;-). We highly reccomend not just the stay but also the cooking lessons.

    Isabella2015-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Eleonora was wonderful. We took the 4-course cooking class and we not only had fun but we learned a lot. The breakfast each morning was beyond delicious. Eleonora has a beautiful home and spirit, and we enjoyed getting to know her and the other guests that were staying at the Cookery as well. The house is beautiful, and Eleonora was so helpful with communicating and helping us get to her place. Thank you so much, Eleonora!

    Holly2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Eleonora was the most perfect host and her home is absolute perfection. It's a wonderful haven of delicious smells and views and relaxation. We adored our cookery class and a whole weeks holiday later we haven't tasted anything as delicious. Thank you so much Eleonora, we look forward to seeing you again soon x

  • Andrea is a nice host, but I have to say the flat is just suitable for a couple not a family, as the air mattress is broken, and the sofa is too small for sleep, so my daughter slept on the hard floor that night, also the parking is a big challenge if you drive a van or normal sedan, as the entrance is very very narrow.

    Frank2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was cozy as described. The gate is really narrow, so better park sone meters further away if your car is medium sized or bigger (just do it and thank me later). Getting to Florenz is quite easy which was nice. Andrea was a polite host. We stayed just for a night but we feel confident in recommending this airbnb.

  • 夏天佛罗伦萨乡村度假首选~院子里还养着鸡鸭小猫~绿油油的草坪上开着朵朵小花~俯瞰山色,十分惬意,我们四月份来的还有点冷,夏天肯定特别惬意~但一定要自己开车才行,因为房子在小山上,相当的小路没有公共交通可以到达。

  • The place is simply delightful ! The view over the valley, the pool, the house, the garden are really amazing. You feel home right away not only because the place is great but also thanks to the warm welcoming of Matteo and his family. They really make you comfortable and are passionate to share what they've done with the villa throughout the years : a beautiful house and an organic vineyard and garden ! La doce vita !!

  • We were lucky to find such a great place in Tuscany the very last minute. Enrico send us an email that he even could provide us a bigger apartment with a kitchenette, which was really convenient for us. Poggio Tre Lune is such a wonderful place. The driveway to the villa was stunning with the cypress trees asides. The huge land surrounding the villa was beautiful and romantic. The BBQ area, the terrace, the swimming pool, the lounge area, it all came with a marvelous view. A great place to unwind and to enjoy the Tuscan pleasures. The best place in Tuscany for sure! Thank you, Osric & Kathelene

    Kathelene2013-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic Iocation, within easy train journey of Florence and far away to feel disconnected from the city. The room/apartment was great - fantastic old features such as traditional stone sink and fire place in the kitchen, and the friendliest hosts you could ever wish for. Beautiful setting, beautiful room, and beautiful hosts.

    Adrian2015-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very idyllic location, must be wonderfull with great weather. Room was small but clean, only seemed to have a little moist problem but we tried to fix that with a heather which was immediatly given by us when we mentioned the problem. Enjoyed the peace and quit of the environment.

    Tanya2015-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place was an oasis in the crazy area of Florence. Amazing and beautiful property. Easily reachable by car. A 5 minute ride into town and you find the train station that takes you directly into the center of Florence (which is a 30 minute train ride but cheap and much easier than trying to park in that crazy city). Helpful, amazing and kind hosts. Mateo and Enrico made wonderful suggestions which even made our visit to their place better. It's also a working farm and we bought products from them that were delicious. We've already recommended this place to others and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to the Airbnb community. You'd be lucky to find space here so try to do so now! Side bonus for outlet shoppers, there's an amazing outlet mall just around the corner. High end shops and there are buses that do day trips here from Florence. Thanks for everything!!!

    Frank & Shelly2016-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Enrico is a fantastic host, and the villa is simply marvelous. If you do not know where to stay in Tuscany, check in at Enrico's place!

    Jan2013-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. After getting over the first hurdles of a misunderstandig, which Matteo handled amazingly professional and correct, we had a nice time staying here! I personally hope for the Poggio Matteo stays there permanently to become Enrico's successor because he's doing a bang-up job in a place of leasure and tranquility. Good base for visiting Firenze.

    20 minutes far from Firenze on Tuscan hills. My wonderful villa with a private swimminng pool, 3.000squared meters of private garden and olivyard, with 4 bed rooms, 2 bath rooms, and all the comforts you and your kids may need is at your disposal all over the year! In a strategic area of Tuscany is the perfect 'base' where to stay... but I have to tell you: 'could cause extreme laziness and unconditional relaxation, you might not want to leave the house and leave the rocking near the pool' :))
    I would like to show you the virtual tour of the villa by clicking here: https://www.google.it/maps/place/Villa+Felice/@43.700274,11.411295,3a,90y,247h,90t/data=!3m5!1e1!3m3!1shkanICXxQxwAAAQXBk3wWg!2e0!3e2!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xfc8c662bd712fed9!6m1!1e1
    the area is very safe!!!! And all the neighbors are very nice... do you remember the movie with Jim Carrey 'truman show'?? They are a little bit older sometimes but very nice!!!! ;)
  • We had a fantastic stay at La Felce: the villa is an authentic Tuscan house with all necessary accomodations, surrounded by a large and peaceful garden with olive trees, multiple terraces and an extremely sunny swimming pool. With the historic beautie of Firenze, Arezzo and Siena nearby, and the illustrious Chianti vineyards at a stone's throw you will not be bored easily. Giuditta was very eager to host us and extremely helpful to provide us with tips and tricks. One tip maybe: at the time of our stay (august 2016) there were a lot of mosquito's in Tuscany so it might be useful to take a mosquito net with you.

  • La maison de Giuditta est vraiment accueillante et chaleureuse. Nous y avons passer des vacances délicieuses. Elle est tout à fait adaptée pour des grandes familles ou plusieurs couples. La région est magnifique et la maison bien située pour se déplacer. Attention ne pas oublier son anti-moustiques! La piscine est très ensoleillée mais il y des coins d'ombre pour lézarder...

    Livia2016-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Acceuil très chaleureux, hôte très disponible a répondu à toutes nos questions et demandes. La campagne est très belle autour de la maison qui est à moins de 30 min de Florence. Accès en bus très pratique. Une construction au mur épais qui protège bien de la chaleur estivale. Nos jeunes ont bien profité de la piscine et du ping pong.

    Magali2016-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Parfait ! Est le mot qui résume le mieux notre séjour en Toscane. Avant notre arrivée, Giuditta a été très présente et aimable pour préparer notre venue. Une fois sur place elle a toujours été disponible pour nous aider, Giuditta est une hôte adorable et au petit soin pour ses invités Nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances dans cette maison idéalement située, sur les hauteurs entre Cellai et la Felce (fraîcheur bienvenue le soir après les grosses chaleurs de la journée) Site proche de Florence (40 min environ) ce qui nous a permit d'y aller et d'y retourner régulièrement pour une ballade, un verre ou une soirée sur le Ponte Vecchio. Proche autoroute, les visites sont faciles pour Pise/ Florence/ Sienne/ Arezzo et découvrir la campagne toscane, son huile et son chianti. La maison est très agréable avec 4 grandes chambres et un magnifique salon de jardin sur la piscine (plus que bienvenu) Les enfants ont adorées jouer dans la piscine, les parties de ping-pong et de babyfoot endiablées ! Bref un merveilleux séjour dans la campagne toscane, que je recommande tant pour le lieu que pour notre hôte. À refaire !

The location close to Florence was perfect. Besides some other guests in the other apartments we had very much privacy and enjoyed every minute there. 10 out of 10 for this place!

  • The San Michele homestead was fantastic; very tranquil, peaceful and enjoyable! Daniela and her mother Suzy made us feel very welcome and were there to help with our many questions about the Area. The home was very spacious, clean and tidy. There was a lovely area outside to sit under the trees. This location had everything we required as we wanted to be in the countryside yet we were only 20mins drive from Florence. We saw wild boar and deers on many occasions over the 3 days, picked wild blueberries and enjoyed the company of the family dogs. A superb choice. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

    Naila2015-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at S. Michele for 4 nights and the location is very nice in the rural Tuscan countryside and close to Florence. The road to get there is quite winding and narrow and can be challenging. The apartment itself has some nice wooden pieces. But the kitchen is quite dated and many of the kitchen tools and things like cups etc need replacing. Suzy and her daughter Lisa were very helpful with all our questions and getting a good internet connection.

    Anita2016-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Daniela is a wonderful host. She accommodated our last minute late arrival. She also bought some groceries for us from the local market. The house is beautiful and a real farm style setting. My kids really enjoyed the place and we definitely recommend this place for families to stay.

  • Scenic rural setting in the heartland of Tuscany. The house is spacious and comfortable. The farm area is very pleasant, with plenty of animals and fruit trees. Our young kids we're thrilled to feed the animals and enjoy donkey rides around the grounds. The hosts, Daniela and family, are superb! They made us feel very at home without taking our privacy and autonomy around the farmland. We were there as 4 adults and 3 kids, everyone leaving with praises to the place and our hosts.

  • We spent 4 wonderful nights at San Michele, and were delighted with our stay. We were warmly welcomed by Suzy, Daniela's mother, who was keen to insure that we had everything we needed. The apartment was clean, spacious, and perfect for our needs, and the setting was splendid for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Moreover, the bookshelves were filled with numerous interesting titles in English -- I had the pleasure of reading Sophocles outside under the trees. San Michele is off the beaten path, so don't be surprised if you feel like you're driving a bit far to get there, as you go through a forest and up and down several hills. But once you arrive, it feels like home...

    Peter2015-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay. Large and roomy, amazing views, homely and very Tuscan. Most definitely do need a car as is a way from shops, train station etc. Ideal spot to explore Tuscany by car.

  • Andrea nous a reçu dans sa maison qui est conforme au descriptif qu'il en fait. Un logement charmant dans un coin de campagne bien au calme. L'accès se fait par un chemin de pierre qui ne ravit pas les voitures maid c'est là le seul point négatif. Il nous a prodigué de bons conseils de visites pour la région. A noter qu'il y a une gare à Rignano et que cela permet de se rendre à Florence en une trentaine de minutes sans soucis de stationnement ni de circulation. Les chambres sont charmantes et les lits très confortables. Un logement à conseiller pour les familles qui souhaitent visiter la région.

  • We did not meet Clarissa because she was on holidays, but her mother was very kind to us during our stay & drove us to the train station everyday, as well as picked us up when we asked in advance. Train station is a short drive from their house, & Florence was about a 35 min train ride. We also really enjoyed the restaurant just up the street, the staff was very friendly. Overall, a really nice neighbourhood to stay in. Thank you very much, we'll remember our great experience in Italy!

    Ready for an authentic rural Tuscan lifestyle experience?..The deers graze the fields near the house, you can hear wild boars grunting and the crickets singing...Healthy food, good wine, friendly chatter .. is there anything better than this?
    The farm is nestled in the hills between Chianti and Valdarno Superiore, in the middle of the beautiful Tuscan countryside, just half an hour from Florence. The apartment is in the 18th century farmhouse divided into 4 apartments renewed in 2012 using greebuilding materials. At the farm we use renewable energy only : the wood gives us heating, the sun provides us with hot water and the energy necessary to satisfy the house needs. From summer 2018 we can offer air conditioning at 10 euro per day. We are under the standards of Eco- Bio Tourism and all the food products are certified organic. We cultivate the land according to the organic agriculture criteria, maintaining its fertility, enhancing its biodiversity. The apartment it is located at the first floor of the old stone house (13 steps up), it has a kitchen with the old working fireplace, 2 big bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, internet connection. One more bed can be added with an extra charge of 15 euro per night . The apartment has different prices for low - peak season. A discount is applied for a stay of a week. Price includes VAT, tourist tax, bed linen and towels with weekly change, water, gas, electricity, heating, wood for the fire, WiFi , free use of washing machine and final cleaning. The apartment is equipped with all you need to cook including salt, sugar, tee and coffee. The crib and chair for your baby are free. In case you don’ feel like preparing food there are many good and also cheap restaurants near us. Most of them serve the real Tuscan food, you should try the typical Tbone steak “Fiorentina” if you eat meat or the “Ribollita” soup if you are vegan/vegetarian.. On demand (NOT included in the price- 25 euro) we can provide you with a rich basket with our or local organic products for breakfast: homemade bread, homemade jam, honey, yogurt, fresh fruit, eggs (if available from our chickens) and cow/vegmilk. A car is needed since nearest shops and restaurants are at 7 km from the farm nevertheless we help guests who don't want to rent a car, offering free lifts from/to the nearest train station and stores accordingly to our works in the fields. We never had problems with mosquitos in summer, but with global warming in these last years they increased in number. We DO NOT have mosquito nets but we provide our guests with mosquito repellents and citronella candles. Our sheets are washed with organic professional detergents made with citronella essential oil. There is a common area in the garden with loungechairs, chairs , table, barbecue and hammock. You can relax in the new outdoor wooden tub with view on the valley. We can warm up the water on demand in spring/fall/winter (not included in the price -30 euro). I will be glad to let you know the story of Poderaccio…What are you waiting for?
    We are in the middle of the beautiful Tuscan country you can walk in chestnut woods, olive groves and vineyards, visit old churches and Medieval villages or go shopping to the most famous top brand outlet of the world: The Mall, just few km from us. Incisa is the nearest small town. It is 7 km from the farm. There you can find stores and restaurants. Florence, is just 27 Km from us, Arezzo, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano are close as well and all reachable in a day trip. But if you are tired of hot cities full of tourists, we can suggest some itineraries out of the beaten path where you can discover beautiful small hamlets and gems. Don’t miss a visit to the old Vallombrosa Abbey and a walk in its woods; hang around Chianti for wine tasting and get lost in its small gorgeous villages and castles surrounded by Medieval walls, visit the old and suggestive churches (Pievi) of Valdarno : you ‘ll be more relaxed and less touristy . If you are a shopping lover , we are at few chilometers from "Dolce & Gabbana" outlet and the famous outlet "the Mall" where you can find the top fashion brands at lower price. Walkers can discover many trekking paths on the surrounding hills and they’ll be surprised of the wild animals they may meet walking at night or early in the morning … of course you can just relax in a hammock under a tree. In the apartment you will find a book where itineraries from the farm are described with details including tips on what to see and where to eat like a local.
  • Francesca and Francesco were very warm and welcomng. Birra is a delightful pup. After five days of hustle and bustle sightseeing in Rome, it was great to have some peace and quiet. The view was incredible. Francesca is a tremedous farmer and the veggies she provided were delicious. We highly recommend bringing home some of her farm-made organic virgin olive oil. Word of advice for those prone to car sickness: approach the farm from the A1tostrade au. Coming over the backside of the mountain can be a bit harrowing.

    Mark2014-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Francesca was a great hostess. The apartment was great for 2 couples and it was nice have a basket of fresh vegetables from Francesca's garden and a bottle of wine waiting for us in the kitchen. Francesca was always available for any questions that we had and she also suggested places to see and every morning she had a board with the activities at the farm and near by towns. The only thing is that it is a little hard to find at first but with the towns help and Francesca's we made it. Love the peace and tranquility of the farm Thanks for the memories Francesca Margaret and friend(URL HIDDEN)

    Margaret2016-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Francesca's farmhouse was absoultely amazing. My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights for our honeymoon. Everything was clean, beautiful and authentically Tuscan. Francesca is as welcoming as could be, she had a bottle of wine, fresh homemade bread and olive oil waiting for us upon arrival. I would highly recommend staying here for a relaxed, scenic, Tuscan vacation. You WILL need a car to get there unless you have a strong affinity for walking several miles uphill.

    Stephen2015-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • We fell in love with the farm the moment we drove through the gates. Francesco and Francesca were there to greet us as well at Birra the dog. Our apartment was absolutely perfect! You can tell Francesca takes great care in choosing everything for her flats, from the wonderful soaps in the bathrooms and kitchen to the fantastic bed, pillows and bed linens. We slept so well there that we always got a late start out of the farm. There is an area outside with table and chairs where you can enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun set in the hills with a nice glass of wine. You really do need a car if you want to travel to wineries or the local grocery market but driving is very easy in the area and everything is within a reasonable drive. Driving to Florence could not have been simpler, just jump on the Autostrade and you're there within half an hour. We will definitely be back to visit and next time we'll bring our friends since I'm sure they will love the farm as much as we did.

    Shawna2017-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first trip to Italy and Francesca was a gracious and caring host. The apt was very clean and neat with beautiful views from every direction. Seeing the lights come at dark in the towns across the valley was a very special sight. If you are looking for peace and tranquility they both abound here.

    Phillip2015-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. What a fantastic place. It was the perfect place for a quiet getaway, set in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The apartment is great, very spacious and fully equipped so that you feel you have your own little farmhouse. Francesca was great, she was very patient in helping us to find the address when we arrived (about 500m past where the satnav took us) and very friendly and welcoming when we arrived. We also enjoyed the company of the cat and dog who were very friendly and sociable! We would recommend picking up some provisions in one of the surrounding villages and preparing a meal, together with the delicious fresh produce from the farm, in the kitchen so that you can make the most of the tranquil setting.

    Keith and Bridget2015-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Francesca's farm and found it to be the perfect location for easy access to Florence, Siena and Chianti. The farm is quiet with places to hike from the front door. Francesca was also an amazing host who made us feel welcomed and gave us some great suggestions for places to see and things to do. She also gave us a cooking class on making bread and pizza (which we then enjoyed eating) and provided pasta for us when we first arrived. She had everything available for us to make meals and to have the all important coffee every morning. Great place for one family or for multiple friends and family to enjoy the beautiful countryside of Tuscany. We would love to return. When you think you are lost on the small country road, you are almost there!

    Mike2014-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Poderaccio Farm is truly an amazing place. The views are spectacular, the home is so comfortable and Francesca is one of the kindest people we have met. She went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful time, and was so thoughtful, even leaving toys for our baby to play with. Poderaccio is such a peaceful place and surrounded by beauty everywhere you look. We are so thankful for the hospitality Francesca has shown to us and hope to return soon!

  • We hired the Villa at the beginning of May 2015 as we were attending a friend's wedding in a nearby town. We arrived on a Sunday, a lot earlier than we anticipated, however a quick call to Andrea/Joanna and we were met at the villa by Joanna and her mother who kindly let us is and showed us around the property. The villa itself is a very traditional Italian building, lots of wooden beams, exposed bricks and ceramic tiles, so does get a little cold in the evening. In terms of the villa facilities there are lots of seating areas big enough for a group of 12 which we were, there was hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, however there is no kettle or iron and ironing board. The pool is an impressive size, in my opinion bigger than it looks in the pictures, one drawback was there were only a few sunbeds, but there was plenty of other seating. Villa is located jsut outside of San Donato in Collina, where there is a local shop, basic bread, water, eggs etc, but opening times are erratic, however nearest supermarket is just down in Bagno a Ripoli (Via Arti, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)gno A Ripoli Italy), approximately a 20 minute drive. One drawback was the shower facilities, but feel this was more due to the fact when we were getting ready all 3 showers would be in use, so pressure and temperature was a little bit unpredictable, that said the jacuzzi bath was very nice. There is not loads to do near the villa, is very much in a remote town, but ideal for walking/cycling and can imagine lots of lovely vineyards around too and central Florence is only 40 minute drive away. Overall would say that the villa was ideal for what we needed and is excellent value for money, just hope we didnt keep the neighbours up too much!!

    David2015-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place, close enough to Florence for the trip in the city to never be an inconvenience, but far enough away that you get the country-side experience. Lots of amenities (billiard/snooker table, small private soccer court, nice pool). Everything was clean and well organized when we got there. The only small issue was with the Internet, as it was very slow sometimes, but I believe this has more to do with the Internet available in the area.

    Anton2012-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay at Andrea's house. It is a charming house with its own caracteristics. The swimmingpool is just great, big enough for our teenage kids. The house is close to Florence which makes it possible to pay it more visits. I would recommend it to everybody.

    Gitte2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea was a great host and the villa was fantastic!! Andrea answered all my many many questions about the villa, area and activities. He even helped us with a great breakfast on the first day & really helped me plan the stay for my friends. The actual villa has everything you would need for a fun week in Tuscany... great pool, views, big bedrooms, huge kitchen and dining area and lots of games to play (billiards, table tennis etc) It was perfect! Another great thing about the location is a vineyard at the end of the road which do cellar tours and really nice selection of foods / wine tasting. There are a couple of local shops and a bus stop that takes you into florence near by. However I would recommend hiring a car because the buses aren't regular and that way you can explore the local area and do some beautiful drives in Tuscany. All in all a fantastic place and very accomodating frienly host in a beautiful part of the world... Would highly recommend staying here!

    Amy2014-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • The location was super, close to a nice village and easy driving to Florence. The pool was great for the kids and the villa has good potential though lacked the simple love/care it needs to make it a great place to stay. Small frustrations hampered our experience. Our overall experience was below expectations in terms of the value relative to what we paid. Due primarily to a lack of care and basic investment in the villa, electrics were inconsistent and somewhat unsafe, the dishwasher and showers were broken, some mosquito nets but many holes which we fixed ourselves, we tidied and cleaned up the garden ourselves when we arrived. The owner's assistant was helpful and listened but unable to respond in a timely way to a few simple requests.

    Malcolm (and Murielle)2016-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • A large villa in calm and very beautiful surroundings, by a gravel road, with a few houses next by, with people you barely see or hear. Relaxing. Best things: This villa is in the middle of nowhere in the country. Perfect location, with around 15 min car ride to a good store, and 30 min to Florence. We enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and dinners on the patio. The pool is great for the 5 children and 4 adults in our company. It has a deep end, and it is clean. There is an excellent pool table by the kitchen for late night games. A lot of space indoors and outdoors gave enough space for all of us. Improvements to make: Dishwasher did not clean well and needs to be replaced. Lightning in kitchen was bad for cooking. Indoor jacuzzi was dirty and we would not have gotten in it. Perhaps they do not clean it during summer when the pool is open. These things were no biggies and had little negative impact. Espresso pod machine was not working, but mocca on the stove with a milk foamer gave excellent cappuccino so this was actually a good thing... The lady taking care of Andrea's house is very friendly, but doesn't speak English. She met us with her daughter Joanna who speaks very good English and gave us her number for any concerns. She answered promptly when we called and was very service minded. Really would recommend wine tasting and a tour at Torre a Cona, within walking distance. Horseriding at Crazy Horse close by. Great food at Ciento Palmi towards Rignano sull'Arno, and even better food and athmosphere at Nuovo Ranch on a hill towards Bagno a Ripoli. This is a place and a location we would recommend to others, and perhaps we will come back one day.

    Jonas2014-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to Andrea for letting us stay at the house. What a beautiful location - looking out over hills and olive trees, but with handy local little shops, and only 20 minutes in to the large Coop in the south of Florence. The pool was large, and had a good amount of chairs and loungers. The house is huge! It would be well set up for large groups by was great for us as a family. It has a billiards table beside the kitchen which got a lot of use at night. There is a table tennis table outside, and a couple of soccer goals. We were surprised about the amount that the electricity, gas and water came to - about 100 euro for 5 nights. Just expect this and you'll have a lovely time. Thanks also to Abigail, the housekeeper, who provides a great service.

    Nicole2015-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is big enough for 12 people the photos can´t show how big is it, The pool was ok. It is very near to Firenze. Andrea/Dafina moved kindly some beds due to my requeriments. Although there's some things that should be improved,as some furnitures broken, shower's pool , armchair's pool...I recomend this house.
