Fully converted Tuscan farmhouse with pool, set in three acres of olive trees in the Chianti Hills just outside Florence. The beautiful house has been in our family for nearly 40 years and is brilliantly positioned for visiting the city, or escaping.
Easy public transport for Florence makes this an ideal base for families with teenagers or friends who want some independence and don't need a car. Perfect for visiting all historic Tuscan towns including Florence, Siena, Arezzo and San Gimignano. The nearest town, Impruneta (4km), is famous for its terracotta factories and showrooms and the 'Festa dell'uva', a grape festival held on the last Sunday in September.
Other things to note
One well-behaved dog is allowed by arrangement. Cost is 10 euros per night.
No smoking allowed - it's a fire hazard during the summer months.
