Great place, great location, great pool and nice view! Money well spent! Though miss the air con during the hot nights. Also few extra piece of furnitures both inside and outside would make it more cosier.

Our journey at Villa Avanella was wonderful. The place is a real paradise. Francesca is a really nice person and she did everything to make our stay a delicious time. The house is between Florence and Sienna, so very convenient if you want to visit these beautiful cities. It is also very close to San Gimignano, a small typical village that you must see. I recommand Villa Avanella for your stay in Toscana

Thank you for a very nice stay in Vila Avenella. We had a very lovely stay, and enjoyed the beautifull nature, swimming in the pool and the beautifull view. We had some trips to Pisa, Firence and Sant Gimignano, and it was recomendable. The house was really big and there was plenty of room for 3 families.

La mia vita si divide fra la città di Firenze e Certaldo ma amo sopratutto la campagna, la natura, gli animali.
Mi piace dedicarmi alla gestione di Villa Avanella sopratutto per rendere il più piacevole possibile il soggiorno dei miei ospiti.
Vi racconto un po' della storia di Villa Avanella:
La costruzione dell'antico complesso di Villa Avanella risale al 1200: il suo nome fino a pochi decenni fa era Podere di Mezza Piaggia, per via della sua posizione collinare. Proprio per la sua posizione, dalla quale la vista spazia libera sulla valle fu scelta come posto di avvistamento e vi fu costruita una torre che ancora costituisce il corpo centrale della villa.
Nel corso dei secoli ha vissuto le lotte per la conquista del territorio tra fio e senesi e la disfatta di Semifonte, è stata via via ampliata e con lo stabilizzarsi della situazione politica ha perso la sua connotazione bellica ed ha preso quella di grande tenuta agricola e importante riserva di caccia e pesca. Il nome attuale deriva infatti dal torrente Avanella, che scorre nei pressi della tenuta.
La tenuta è stata acquistata negli anni '80 da mio padre, Pierluigi Cioni, imprenditore fiorentino con la passione della caccia, innamorato del posto sempre accarezzato dal vento e della sensazione di pace che gli trasmetteva.
La parte inferiore della tenuta è denominata Scuole perchè proprio questa è stata fino agli anni '70 la loro effettiva funzione: una tipica piccola scuola rurale toscana.
Oggi Villa Avanella è una importante riserva faunistica naturale privata, ricca di selvaggina autoctona: fagiani, lepri, capriolivivono liberi e indisturbati in un vero e proprio polmone verde dove ogni specie animale e vegetale cresce rigogliosa e lontana da ogni minaccia di inquinamento.
Per me questo è il Luogo del Cuore, a cui mi dedico con passione seguendo personalmente la gestione del complesso e di tutte le attività agricole, i vigneti, i campi e le aree boschive.
