  • The casale is a beautiful peaceful place, and we were really amazed at how hospital Stefania was. We didnt have a car, so she helped us figure out where the bus stops were, what time it arrives and sofort. We had an amazing stay, and we would recommend it to our friends.

    Merlijn2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing location, easy access if you arrive by car. We loved the views, country side and lovely apartment. Highly recommended.

    Chris And Mari2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • The drive up to the property is somewhat challenging but it is certainly worth it! The view is spectacular. Stefania is incredibly helpful with really great suggestions on what to do/see/eat.

    Maria2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Stefania is top notch hostess. She went over everything with us and gave is wonderful easy tips to navigate the area. Her casale is beautiful and had everything we needed, especially the view. It is a bit away from the city but not difficult to get to. A car is a must for staying here. The room smelled wonderful with the lavender.

    Emily2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • The castle was something out of this century! The garden area was absolutely lovely with breathtaking view of Florence. The pool and the garden in the backyard was another gorgeous place that we really enjoyed! The castle itself was absolutely sparkling clean and the lavender was just such a perfect touch. We had the best and most restful sleep and stay and your lovely home! The location could not be more perfect! It is very close to Florence yet its away from the crazy crowds and business of the city.

    Kateryna2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Magical views of Florence, twinkling lights at night. Sunsets! The moon! Stars. Lovely having breakfast in the garden, butterflies, beauty of Tuscany everywher! The stone buildings, grounds and pool..are well kept and relaxing, so peaceful. Stefania was quick to help us in every need and very kind. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. We were grateful for a standing fan as the mosquitoes were voracious.. By facing in to the door it kept any from dntering! The screened windows were wonderful to allow the fresh breezes flow. The fan also creates white noise for noisy feet from guests upstairs!

    Gary2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Stefania's Casale is absolutely stunning and offers gorgeous views over Florence. She is the perfect host, offering lots of information and tips on things to do and see and places to eat. We were not without anything and would love to stay again. We would recommend it to anyone!

  • It was great to see the night view of Florence in the evening. Neat gardens, indoors and tidy kitchens were great. My parents told me that it was cold and they prepared blankets and firewood. Thanks to Stefania for doing the best for us.

    Eun Young2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • As good a view as you could get anywhere! Beautiful area to sit and watch the sun set over Florence with the Duomo in clear view! Excellent and easy check in, and Stefania gave a lot of useful local tips. A perfect place to stay for a family of four with two young kids.

    Simon2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved staying here, the castle, gardens and host’s hospitality were fabulous.

    Siobhan2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Stefania's place was heaven. The location and view over Florence was absolutely breathtaking, and the property itself was a lovely mix of traditional Italian furnishings and modern finishes in the bathroom. It was great to be based outside Florence and we did day trips to Siena and San Gimignano. Stefania is a gracious and informative host, and her tips about local restaurants/places to eat proved spot on! We did not want to leave and we will be back.

    Eliza2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • excellent castle, housing is fully consistent with the photos. There is everything you need. Stefania is very responsive, always stayed in touch and was always ready to help. The castle offers excellent panoramic views of the whole of Florence. If you will stop there, be sure to take binoculars to get a closer look at the city :) One of the things to consider is that you must have transport in order to stay in the castle. Without it, it will be problematic to get there.

    Andrey2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Really well kept medieval castle! Great views of Florence without being too far away, and close to charming towns. Nice welcoming touches as well!

    Kirsten2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • If you want the PERFECT place the stay, book this right now. The views of the Tuscan hills and the place is out of a storybook. Two beautiful bedrooms, one bathroom and a spacious living and kitchen area was perfect for our group of four. It never felt small and crowded. We enjoyed the amenities of the pool and walking around the beautiful property in the mornings. Very clean. Very beautiful. Very perfect.

    Nathalie2019-09-14T00:00:00Z

    Our farmhouse, called Podere Vignola, is an original Tuscan farmhouse. It is surrounded by Chianti vineyards and it a very quiet and relaxing place but yet very close to Florence and a ideal place for those willing to explore the beauty of Tuscany.
    Apartment Limonaia is one of the 5 apartments of Podere Vignola, a recently restored farmhouse located in the middle of the Chianti region and just 10 km far from Florence. Podere Vignola is sorrounded by its private park of circa 43 hectars of which 17 of Chianti vineyards. Apartment Limonaia is a 90 sqm apartment. It is composed of a large living room with fireplace, one double bedroom, one twin bedroom, one bedroom with one large single bed, one bathroom with shower and a large private garden outside overlooking the rolling hills of the Chianti region. There is also a double sofa bed in the living room. Podere Vignola has a private swimming pool of 13x7 metres. It is very easy to reach Florence by car (in around 20 minutes) and by train (17 minutes to reach Santa Maria Novella, the main train station of Florence located in the historic center). Podere Vignola is the ideal location to visit Florence and all other major sites of the Tuscan region such as Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa and the Chianti area.
    Our farmhouse is located in the middle of the Chianti Rufina area. The surroundings are the most typical Tuscan scenaries. Most of the area is cultivated with vineyards (Sangiovese and Merlot) and olive trees. Going towards East there are also vineyards with Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) and Chardonnay. Since we are in the middle of the countryside it is possible to see (especially early in the morning and in the evening) deers, wild boars, wild rabbits and pheasants.
  • Beautiful home in the Tuscany Hills. I loved every minute.

    Ezekiel2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was a beautiful place in the hills of Tuscany. Beautiful area and our host was great! :)

    Teresa2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location to relax. Pure Tuscany

    Ömer2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The apt in Limonaia above town of Sieci was amazing! The place was charming with our own front patio, 3 berms and a nice living room. We absolutely loved the countryside! The hills of Tuscany are gorgeous! We traveled in February and were happy with the weather in the 50’s with sunny afternoons. At Felipe’s recommendation, we did wine tasting at Castello Del Trebbio- beautiful castle in the hills. Our other favorite day trip from our apt was to San Gimignano-an idyllic Tuscan town! If you are lucky to find availability at Giovanni and Felipe’s place, you will be happily content!

    Robyn2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very cute, you have to buy it before you move in, otherwise it is inconvenient. No washing machine

    立民Catherine2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • The most satisfying place to stay in Italy on the 15th. It is 35 minutes drive from Florence, but if you are traveling in a rental car you can feel free to go there.

    Hyunjun2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Giovanni was a great host, he was very helpful and polite. He even has a booklet full of places to see and eat that he offers. The views are spectacular, the rooms are clean, and the place was overall beautiful.

    Riza2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • The surrounding vineyards and Italian countryside are amazing. The house is clean and well equipped. Giovanni was worried that we could not find a place, and was very enthusiastic about making an appointment in advance to pick us up to the place to stay. It was only a bit noisy upstairs for guests who stayed the other night. Anyway recommended ~

  • Large, welcoming house, equipped with everything needed for a pleasant stay. Stefania welcomed us and our dog with great kindness. I recommend it.

    Antonella2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Simply perfect. Stefania makes you feel at home, the place is beautiful and then ..... it ends up buying me a hat (I wanted to screw him, but then I was told that it is not done). Thank you

    Ezio2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great view from the house

    재연2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • We were charmed by the very well decorated and comfortable house and by the warm welcome from Stephania. Access to Florence by train from Sieci is significant. Everything contributed to a pleasant stay in Pontassieve where we will not hesitate to return, but in the spring season.

    Françoise2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Without any regrets. We had a great time. Very nice and clean accommodation. Not far from the train station, 20 minutes from Florence. Just a shame the WiFi speed in the accommodation is here ineffective.

    Eddie2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Really beautiful landscape in the nature, beautiful and cozy flat. Also very clean. Communication was easy, helpful and friendly host. Only WiFi didn't work. Eazy to travel to Firenze by train. I would recommend this flat anytime.

    Andreas2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, clean comfortable Stefania gorgeous and friendly

    Monica2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and quaint. The heated floors were an added bonus. Cute place, would love to visit again. The host was very accommodating to our changing schedule, and even offered us a ride in the morning.

  • The house is situated on a mountain and you have on the terrace a beautiful view over the valley. By car you drive about 15 minutes through some serpentines to the house. The road is getting narrower. We did not find Serena. We were all alone in the house the week. The accommodation is very well equipped. Everything was very clean. Serena also gave us a fake wine, something for dinner and a small breakfast. That was very appropriate, since we arrived very late and shops are further away and not so long on. In the valley is a small coop in Sieci or a big coop in Pontassieve. Journey about 20 minutes. So a car is very important and you have a parking space in front of the house. For a child or another person there is also a small cozy room. Although Serena had a LTE router for the Internet (WLAN) in the house, but this had little Internet reception. Even our phones had no LTE reception there. The mobile internet is not well developed there. The satellite TV got no German channels in. Take board games with you! We had a very nice time there and can recommend the house, the landscape, the food and the wine.

    Nils2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The garden, the view is amazing. Wonderful place to unwind.

    Petra2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home provided by an amazing host who gives the best tips on vinyards and olive oil farms. What a view!

    Jennifer2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Serena's accommodation is located in the outskirts of Florence, a 30-minute drive away with a beautiful view of the Tuscan countryside.

    Sophie2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect. We were happy to spend two weeks in the beatiful house of Serena. Serena is a very reliable host and a nice person. We very much liked the fantastic view over the hills of Toscana and a beatiful garden where we could enjoy the privacy, the silence and the beatiful nature.

    Tobias2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at the appartement. The view and the garden are amazing. Thanks to Serena for her hospitality. We can highly recommend this beautiful place.

    Robert2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Serena's place is exactly as it looks like on the pictures: nice and cosy, overlooking the gorgeous Chianti region. You feel you are out in the country, enjoying amazing landscapes - and then you hop on a train, and here you are, 25 minutes later, in the heart of Florence! Serena is one of the most responsive hosts I have found, and her sweet touches of attention make you feel at home, and special. I strongly recommend her place!

    Emmanuelle2019-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • We are family of five and really enjoyed the peaceful and calm surrounding. The view is absolutely stunning. The House was well equipped and served all our needs. You could easily access Florence and other nice villages like Fiesole. Thanks for having us Serena! Hope to come again. PS: We can highly recommend the Restaurant “Il Ritrovo” in Rufina.

  • Absolutely gorgeous authentic experience in Tuscan farm house. Lovely host. Great location for exploring the area. Stunning views.

    Louisa2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Cinzia’s farm was amazing. The house is a typical stone house with a lot of character. The nature all around is beautiful and so peaceful. And Cinzia is the best host ever; so kind and generous. You feel right away that she is available for you and wants to help. If you re looking for a quiet home to spend your Tuscan vacations; this is the place.

    Marie2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most delightful places I have been to. For those seeking a quite time in nature, The house is old and simple and beautiful refurbished. Sinzia the host is great . The place is a charm. It's not for those who want to come and go, because the road to and from is long and quite bumpy. Still its only 30 minutes from Florence, but who wants to go to Florence when all this beauty is around.

    Noga2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Rustic shared barn in the Tuscan hills about 30 mins drive NE of Florence, simply renovated in keeping with local tradition. Great base for exploring Tuscany. Cinzia and friends are lovely, very accommodating and happy to help whenever needed. Fantastic restaurant at the end of the track ca 1km - highly recommended.

    Brian2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Cinzia is a very warm, joyful and attentive hostess. She organized everything so that I could get to her from the train station (Sieci). The stay with her was great. It is such an idyllic place. I use the 3 days to read, meditate and go hiking. It is the perfect place to unwind and leave the city life behind. Quite sure, I recommend this place and would always come back to relax. Thanks again to the charming hostess.

    Laura2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is located in a beautiful landscape. Ideal for lovers of nature and tranquility. Great view, super fast communication, very nice hostess. Accommodation is equipped with everything except aircon, parking available. The last 2 km are a dirt road, so maybe be careful, especially if car is used.

    Benjamin2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Cinzia is a kind, caring, extremely helpful and communicative guest, while respecting the privacy of her guests. The house is really fascinating both for its position in the middle of the woods and for how it was put back in place, preserving the nature of the farmhouse, thus obtaining a particularly suggestive effect. Don't be intimidated by the road: it's just a white road, nothing more. If you have only attended asphalt it is worth doing this different experience to reach Cinzia.

    Lorenzo2019-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • We visited a concert in Florence and looked for a place to stay in nature: It was so nice at Cinzia that the city of Florence became a minor matter for us. The rustic house is beautifully situated amidst the Tuscan forests and fields; Bedroom and the common areas are lovingly decorated and artistically designed. The equipment in kitchen, bath and living room is thought out with all details. Courtyard and garden is equipped with sitting areas and hammocks. A little paradise, we'll be back!

    L'antico casolare situato nel cuore della Toscana nelle terre del Chianti, risalente all'anno mille d.C., è segnalato tra i poderi più belli della zona. La torre, fa parte di una corte fortificata medioevale di cui sono ancora visibili le feritoie.
    Potrete alloggiare in una torre del 1000 dove tutto è rimasto come un tempo. La torre si trova situata all'interno di una corte fortificata Medioevale costituita da: Casa patronale, ovile, fienile, Casa del contadino, cantina e rimessa. Tutto costruito attorno a una corte da cui si ha accesso da un portone principale. L'area che è accessibile agli ospiti è la Torre, con annesso giardino recintato in modo tale da permettere anche a un animale domestico di muoversi liberamente all'aperto. In tale giardino è inoltre situato un barbecue in muratura disponibile all'utilizzo dei miei ospiti. Sarà possibile, per chi è interessato, svolgere eventuali visite, quali: - Visita alla casa/laboratorio del pittore che vive nel castellare da molti anni e che tutte le mattine si reca in Piazza del Duomo a Firenze per esporre le sue Opere ed eseguire ritratti. - A richiesta, previa prenotazione, è possibile richiedere un accompagnatore esperto per progetti alla scoperta della natura - caccia fotografica - trekking - wandern alla ricerca di animali selvatici, come il lupo dell'Appennino - Tour in carrozza Non sarò presente durante il soggiorno dei miei ospiti ma sarò rintracciabile per qualunque evenienza e necessità. In uno degli appartamenti del complesso vive il Pittore Germano che tutte le sere torna a dormire e che può essere un punto di riferimento per gli ospiti in caso di necessità. La caratteristica di questo luogo è la sua valenza storica tuttora intatta, immersa nella natura. Siamo nel centro della Toscana a metà strada tra il Tirreno e l'Adriatico ed è dunque un ottimo punto di partenza per visitare tutta la Toscana. Il casolare si trova a soli 40 minuti da Firenze. Il casolare si trova immerso nella campagna e si ha accesso da una strada sterrata che sale per 750 mt per cui non vi sono mezzi pubblici che portano sul posto. E' però possibile arrivare con l'auto e a circa 15 minuti vi è la stazione ferroviaria di Rufina o di Pontassieve che porta fino al centro di Firenze. Alcune comodità sono in relazione all'età della struttura: il riscaldamento è un termocamino a legna (sempre disponibile) con aria calda canalizzata e sono fornite due stufette elettriche per le emergenze. Acqua calda corrente nei servizi. Sono inoltre a disposizione sdraio prendisole e possibilità di barbecue all'aperto.

  • What an amazing place! Beautiful location, a wonderful house, full of history and interest, and a wonderful host in Carlo, who made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. Had an incredibly relaxing time; the garden is a great place to watch the sunset, and you feel like you're in your own little corner of heaven. The final bit of road was really quite bumpy, so having an experienced driver is recommended, but didn't detract from our stay. Thanks Carlo!

    Joe2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • If you are a self-driving traveler, this beautiful manor house will be the best choice! It is just over 30 kilometers from the central area of Florence and only 30 minutes from the mall. The famous wine town of Rufina is only 6 kilometers away, where you can buy authentic red wine and daily necessities. The manor is beautiful, quiet and safe. Located on a hill full of vineyards (not very high), you can even watch the clouds from your bedroom in the morning. The manor is large in size, and the fruit trees such as persimmon trees, apple trees, almond trees, and grapes are full of fruits. You can also find a variety of wild mushrooms on the lawn full of mountain flowers, some are as big as your face, and the taste is very fat. The interior of the room is large and clean. Furniture and furnishings are full of classical romanticism, but refrigerators, kitchen utensils, fireplaces and other living appliances are modern. Everything you need is everything, and Carlo even has an international adapter plug, which I have never encountered before. Finally, I would like to introduce Carlo, which is not only friendly and welcoming. He is like our relatives in a foreign country, giving two families who have traveled home for 2 months. We love him forever and ever! It is a bust choice!

  • What a wonderful man! His place is absolutely wonderful but there is someone who deserves more compliments than the castle. I wish we will meet soon Carlo!

  • If you are looking for the most wonderful and authentic Italian experience ever, you must stay at Carlo’s cottage. Our stay was perfect in every way. Staying in a 1000 year old medieval military tower, virtually unchanged since then, you can easily feel yourself being transported back in time. The sunset over the Tuscan hills, the grapes growing on the vine, the stars in the dark sky above….so quiet, so peaceful – at times all you could hear was the buzzing of the bees. Everything was provided: towels, cooking supplies, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, two bathrooms even, and the WiFi was excellent and strong. I second, third and fourth what others have said about the road. It’s tough for sure, but our Mini made it up and down, very slowly…. This all being said, while the location was perfect, and lovely, the best part of our stay was Carlo. He is absolutely amazing – friendly, kind, interesting, knowledgeable, a true gem of a human being. He went above and beyond our expectations in so many ways – too numerous to list. Our trip would not have been the same without him, truly! Do yourself a favor and stay at Carlo’s. You will not regret it!

  • The stay at this old castle was really something special! We stayed in the old watchtower of the historic village and had a well-equipped kitchen for nice evenings. In general, the decor was like from another century, but in a positive sense! Many paintings of a painter who lived in the castle for a long time, great furniture that simply fits into the castle, beautiful details that round off the decor. And even Wi-Fi was there. Of course that was retrofitted!

    Alexander2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • What hospitality! We had a very good stay in Carlo's cottage, which did everything to make us feel better. Thanks again !

  • If you are a lover of very, very, very old homes, this is your experience to have. This home was built ~1000 years ago. If you expect all the bells and whistles of a new home, it is not for you. All you need is there (frig, stove, freezer, internet). Carlo greeted us with open arms and shared with us Santo wine and biscotti. Almost like family. A car is mandatory for this home. Expect an adventure going to and from this home. The road is very rough for the last 700 meters. We did it by car (very slowly) without any problem. But the road is better suited for an SUV. GPS or google maps is a must.

  • Francesco is a superb host. Loved his positive vibe and his warm heart. He went above and beyond to help me with my morning commute to Sieci train station and Spent his time generously helping me with my italian language learning, for which he didn't have to but he did it anyway purely out of his kindness. I liked sharing my daily experience and exchanging opinions with Francesco. We were very happy to be invited to his birthday dinner party and got to hang out with his friends. Good times! Francesco's apartment is always kept clean and tidy. The house is up on a small hill where you can walk up from Molino school within 5 mins. I love Molino del Piano as a small quiet town which is 30 - 40 mins by bus to Florence SMN train station depending on traffic. It is overall a very good experience. I recommend Francesco and his cute house to everyone who wants to have some authentic and less "hustle and bustle" Tuscany experience away from the city center. P.S. Be prepared that your heart might be melt by Francesco's cute dog "Thor" ;-)

  • Fracesco is such a lovely host! He was quick to respond to any questions we had and even though he had to go on business for the weekend we were visiting he still picked us up from the train station and gave us transportation info on trains and buses from Molino del Piano and what to do around the town, and showed us around right before he had to leave. His home is so nice and clean, his back patio and yard are out of a dream of Tuscany! If you are looking for something outside of crowded Florence and closer to a local town, this is a good place to stay. The grocery store and Bar 54 were walking distance away, we had a lovely meal and drinks at Bar 54 and everyone was very friendly. Thank you so much Francesco your hospitality was so appreciated and we would love to come back again to see you someday!

    Eva2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Francesco's house is a beautiful space near Florence. It is very accessible by train. Francesco's hospitality is incredible, the night I got tired of traveling invited me to dinner with his friends and we had a great time. He was kind enough to pick me up at the station and take me back to my departure, great detail on his part. Highly recommended :)

    Carlos & Katie2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • I like the quiet and friendly town, Francesco warmly pick up and drop off at the station, catch up with a party between the neighbors on the frist day, Italy really is a great food country ,all the food comes from the neighbors Homemade, the Desserts are doing very well. This is a very memorable travel experience. Thanks to Francesco! Very good bed and breakfast experience, like the quiet and friendly town, Francesco warmly pick up and drop off at the station, catch up with a party between the neighbors on the day of the stay, the gourmet country is amazing, all the food comes from the neighboring Homemade, the desserts are doing very well. This is a very memorable travel experience. Thanks to Francesco!

  • Staying with Francesco was an absolute highlight. He is SO welcoming. His home is lovely and I really felt at home there. He is full of knowledge and advice - he shares with you not only his home, but his insight and way of life. The room is lovely and the local area has everything you need but also the beauty of the Tuscan hills which you can explore.

    Edith2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Francesco is the most amazing host, who makes you feel welcome. He took me with his car and picked me up from the train station every time he was at home, he cooked and even took me with him at his friends for dinner. Would definetly come here again.

    Onea2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location in a picturesque Tuscan village in the middle of a valley just outside Florence. Escape the busy touristic energy of Florence, yet just a short train or bus away should you want to make your way to the city. Perfect getaway and Francesco offers unparalleled hospitality. Unforgettable experience.

Il Castello di Ferrano offers to his hosts the chance of doing an unforgettable experiece:you will be the only guests in the castle and everythig will be for you (private pool, gardens ecc.)Historical building, surrounded by nature, finely decorated, frescoes/moulding on the ceiling, ample terrace w/ stone and terracotta floor, private outdoor pool.. Good position. Preferably come by car.
    It is immersed in the countryside, but still well connected with the city of Florence
    The castle is part of a territory that belongs to the farm
  • Amazing! If you have the chance to stay here do not miss it!!

    Tamara2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Fabrizio, Sonja and Francesca were wonderful hosts. Communication was friendly, prompt and effective. The place was immaculately clean. It was the first place out of three, that actually turned on the heat for us! Thankfully, as a castle can be chilly, and it's now almost mid November. The castle is situated in a beautiful pastoral mountain village-- quiet and peaceful. Such a great relief after the noise and polluted air of downtown Florence! We highly recommend this family and venue to travelers everywhere. This is a particularly inspiring location for painters and artists of any medium :)

    Ariel2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • More than you may imagine. The views: the ambient interior as well as the breathtaking views of the valley below from the every window and door. Lively birds displaying bird games. The crisp aromatic air set a stage for indoor relaxation, a well-set kitchen, walks or runs with a camera at hand will delight you. I cannot day enough as this was an exhilarating and thought provoking adventure. As a painter, I was in another world. A real world of castle life. Just amazing. A must experience.

    Kathryn2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we checked in til the moment we departed this magical place, we were met with such warmth and kindness. The castle truly is a labour of love and it definitely shows. Every detail is thoughtfully laid out in the apartment, there are excellent kitchen facilities and the terrace with views of a sunset that I will never forget. It's quiet and peaceful with beautiful gardens, but within a 15 minute drive of the town Pontassieve which we found handy for catching trains and grabbing all the essentials for your stay. I eagerly look forward to more of the castle being on display and hope to return one day. Thank you so much Fabrizio and family for making our stay one we will cherish!

    Melissa2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • The moment we arrived we realized that all of the other reviews  were correct when they said look no further you WANT TO STAY HERE!!!. This was my first Air bnb experience and I don't think it will ever be topped. It reminded us of a scene from the movie Under The Tuscan Sun where Francesca was eating a hot grape from the market and the violet sweetness breaks open in her mouth saying it even smells purple.  I don't even know  where to begin how perfect this experience was.  We were met by Sonia and she was so warm and inviting. She gave us a tour of the Castle, grounds and the apartment, showing us how to work everything and where everything was that we could possibly need. We were welcomed with home made gravy, some pasta, a bottle of wine and a hand typed binder with all of the tips and suggestions you could possibly need as well as contact numbers if we needed them. The apartment was absolutely perfect. So much room. A wonderful kitchen, dining area with tables both in the kitchen and dining area. A beautiful and comfortable bed and bathroom that made us feel like the King and Queen of the castle.   We spend three nights at the castle and traveled to Florence two days. At the suggestion of our hosts we drove to Pontassieve, a town about 15 min away by car, and took the train to Florence. The toughest thing is parking. We were frustrated the first day but stumbled into a neighborhood a short distance away on  Giuseppe Di Vittorio. There is ample free parking there on the street near Sunset Pizza and it is only less than a 10 minute walk to the train down the street through a pedestrian tunnel.  Remember white lines free parking, blue lines you need to pay. That is very important.  The train ride to Florence was perfect. It is about 23 minutes and the cost is 7.20 euro round trip per person.  Now for Sonia & Fabrizio. I can not describe how wonderful and caring these special people are as well as their daughter Francesca, who consistently sent us useful messages. We were welcomed into their extended family and from the moment we met them felt and were treated as if we had been members  of their family for many years. Our only regret is that we were not able to spend more time with them and or at the Castle. We so look forward to returning for a celebration with them again. They are such wonderful people and now family.  They care  deeply about making their guests stay as perfect as it can be.  We are so grateful and blessed to have met and stayed with them in their precious Castle. Grazie  Grazie Grazie

  • An amazing place to stay the Castle is fabulous and the views are stunning. Fabrizio and Sonia are fantastic hosts they were very warm and welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. Wish we could have stayed longer. It was so great to have the castle all to ourselves. The private tour of the rest of the castle that Sonia gave us was a real highlight. I could go on and on and wish I could give 6 stars

    Michael2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fabrizio 's place offers a unique experience and a slice of history, especially for those of us from the antipodes.

    Sonia2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you are thinking of staying here, take my advice and book now! Truly an amazing and unique experience from start to finish. Fabrizio, Francesca and Sara went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and ensure we had everything we needed. The whole castle is spectacular. The gardens are beautiful, the pool area was so relaxing - it is clear that the family puts a lot of effort into maintaining the grounds. The place has a very cool vibe, and very romantic for couples! We only wish we could have stayed longer.

  • Exceptional location with 360 degree views of the hills, in a quiet area. Well appointed to enjoy the day: swimming pool, sunbeds in sufficient quantity, bar, delicious buffet at noon (20 €) ... Buffets very successful two nights a week. Visit of the cellars instructive and friendly. Nice home by the owners. Only caveats: wifi in the room unusable, not very practical shower, restaurant property (for evenings without buffet) too sophisticated for our taste. To know: some rooms do not have air conditioning.

We feel so lucky because it feels like we found this incredible gem. We did truffle hunting, a cooking class with the chef at the restaurant, and a tour of the vineyard. Everything was perfect. The pool is incredible and so refreshing. All of this being said, the most incredible part is the scenery. Absolutely amazing. We hope we can come back! Thank you for everything!!!!!!!

  • We loved staying at Alessandra's agritourismo. We took the train from Firenze SMN to Scopeti and walked the 10 minutes from the station to Alessandra's place. Note: If you walk from the station, you'll be walking along the shoulder of a semi-busy road for about half a mile. Bring a flashlight if you'll be checking in at night! Alessandra was welcoming, and we had a lovely couple days eating her cooking, drinking her wine, and relaxing outside. Highly recommended!

    Hailey2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Alessandra was a wonderful host to us during our stay! The room had the most beautiful view of the countryside and the pool was the highlight of the stay. Her olive oil is delicious! We had a few bottles shipped home. It would be easier to stay here with a car but we worked it out walking from the bus stop and the host provided us with a ride to the bus stop upon our departure since it was raining outside. She is very kind and I would stay here again!

    Rebecca2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great area of Tuscany to visit. Wonderful host and beautiful view of the Tuscan hills from our room. Take Allesandra up on her offer to cook for you. You will be pleasantly surprised. Great wine too. Bought a bottle for a night when we are reminiscing about our time in Tuscany.

    Angela2019-09-18T00:00:00Z

  • This was the perfect spot for us to relax. It is a super beautiful farm, very quiet (yes you can hear the cars passing, but it does not bother), the swimming pool was most of the time only for us and the view and the surroundings are super beautiful. Alessandra was a great host, very communicative and friendly. We had very nice chats and made friends with her cute dog. The bed was comfortable and all was clean and made with love. Such good energy! We hope to come back one day. Thank you Alessandra!

    Katarina2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay! From communication to direct treatment, Sandro and Ludovica are kind, attentive, smiling people with a lot of attention to detail. His house is in Compiobbi, a town about 15 min. by train from the center of Florence, under a mountain and in a super quiet country setting. To rest, it is perfect. Added to this, as soon as you arrive they indicate the facilities and ensure that you can move with total security and fluidity around. The facilities are impeccable, cozy, stylish and super comfortable. I recommend it to 400%.

    César2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely perfect stay at Sandro and Ludovica, adorable, approachable hosts who knew how to give us very good advice to discover Florence. The room is very clean with a nice bathroom and access to the outside. It was easy to park in the street of the accommodation. Compiobbi is very well located three train stops (10-13 min) from Florence train station which is close to the Duomo in the historic center. We regret to have stayed only two nights and will come back with pleasure to Ludovica and Sandro.

The place is comfortable, spacious and modern. The township has quaint restaurants and shops. It's only a short 20 min bus or train ride (train is better) to the absolute centre of Florence. We really loved our stay here and highly recommend it.

    Monolocale immerso nel verde,zona silenziosa con giardino e posto auto
    Ampio spazio di 30 mq con camino suddiviso in zona letto , angolo adibito a cucina con tavolo e bancone , bagno privato nell'appartamento ed accesso al giardino .
    Ciò che più colpisce passeggiando per la campagna adiacente a Rufina e Montebonello è la varietà degli scenari che si incontrano. Filari di viti spesso vicini alle file di olivi ampi boschi su crinali montani che ricordano quelli più alpestri. Alti cipressi in ville e castelli (oggi per lo più fattorie) d'antica memoria (come Pomino e Castiglioni) che sono noti per la produzione vinicola del Chianti Rufina.
  • Best Airbnb ever! Cristina and her house were absolutely perfect, it really made my trip to Tuscany magical. Cristina is wonderful, the house itself has everything you need and Rufina and the surrounding villages are charming. It's very easy to get into Florence, just 30 minutes from Rufina station. The walk to the station from the house is very scenic, the hills and the river are beautiful. Cristina goes out of her way to make sure you're comfortable, and all the neighbours are very friendly. This is a true Italian experience, and I cannot recommend it enough. Grazie mille Cristina!

  • Cristina has been very kind since the arrival and her hospitality and kindness is to highlight and of course if you house in an area with easy access to everything and parking and with everything you need to spend a few days in Tuscany. Definitely recommended 100% and I will return home if I go through this magical place again. Thank you.

    Jesus2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Cristina's apartment looks just as homey as in the photos. We were warmly welcomed, so we felt comfortable from the beginning. The bed was super comfortable. It was well located for our activities. It is close to nature at the foot of the mountains. Florence can be reached in about one hour, San Gimignano in 40 minutes. In the village itself you get everything vital. We will be back.

    Giovanni2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Christina’s place is just perfect if you are looking for a place to stay not so far from Florence but far enough from busy city to relax and sleep well. The overall atmosphere of the house is calm and cozy. We took a car straight from the airport and we have no problems to find a place. I would totally recommend Cristina’s house to my friends!

    Elena2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy apartment with a lovely garden! Cristina was a charming host and one can see a lot of personality in the apartment. I really would have come here again.

    Elise Aurora2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Cristina was kind and helpful and the studio is cozy and surrounded by greenery in an easily accessible location. We only stayed one night but if we were to return to the area we would definitely stop at Cristina's house again.

  • The house is in a very picturesque place, it is very beautiful around. And the house itself is also very comfortable and cozy. A special pleasant atmosphere, it was a feeling that I came to visit my grandmother😊 The owner was always in touch, he met, told everything, helped. I definitely recommend housing.

    Warm and cozy apartment in rustic style in ancient block of 1700 with excellent view of the valley and the hills at about 30 minutes by car from florence. This apartament was part of a big property own by my family for generations, them started with a little touristic business 100 years ago and now I want to share again this space with you with the same intention. Our position is perfect to enjoy the neighborhood, the mountains or the near city of Florence.
    Spacious and bright, offering a unique view of the surrounding landscape . Inside you will find a rustic style but complete. Was recently installed a new air conditioner for better heating and cooling the house. The home is made by a bedroom and a kitchen and a dining dining room, with a private bathroom. You also have acces to a little balcony with a special view on the valley with a table where to have special meals. Is included the use of the garden with my family and other guests; the garden space is big and inside you can find a lot of aromatic plants and a barbecue to use it with something bought maybe at the famous butcher shop of the village. In the garden there are even some chicken and ducks, they are closed and don't will come to you, except you do not want to.
    In the village of Diacceto you can find everything you need for a quiet and tasty stay. We have a ancient butcher shop with a lot of typical meat and steack, a historic cafe that make a very good icecream in summer, a second bar cheaper, a little supermarket, a hairdresser, a rich filled bakery and a hardware shop, that usually have some local vegetables to sell (you have to ask them first) For vintage "engines lovers" , the month of May offers the famous hill climb of "consuma" departing from Diacceto. In the summer is organized in the country the Diacetum Festival, an event of music, cinema, theater and dance. In the remaining period of the year the nature is the true protagonist of the scene in all its aspects. The immediate distances of Diacceto are full of famous and prestigius vineyards from Frescobaldi family; a prominent Florentine noble family that have been involved in the political, sociological, and economic history of Tuscany since the Middle Ages and wine maker from 1308. There are 2 castles in the area that are used like cellar and where is possible to make tour and tastings of typical wines. Predominant is the presence of three well protected green areas surrounding conditions, among which the national park forests.
  • We spent 5 days in Francesco's apartment and enjoyed our stay a lot. The house is situated in a quiet, peaceful Tuscany village. The views are incredible. There is everything in the flat you need for your holidays . Would love to come again one day. This part of Italy is amazing. A car is a must.

    Мария2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was lovely. The home was much bigger than expected. The view of the balcony was beautiful. Only issue we ran into is that we should have had a car and that was on us. However, if you decided to not have a car...the bus stop is right next door. We enjoyed taking that directly down to Florence. The host was quick to respond and was willing to pick us up if we needed. One thing to know, is there are no taxis or Uber’s easily excessable

    Charlotte2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place with lovely terrace from which you have great view on Tuscany landscape. Also Francesco is very responsive host.

    Duje2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Francesco's home was impeccable! We felt pampered and spoiled! The accommodation is a real gem, clean, welcoming and where we found everything we needed. (Actually even more !!!) The description of the accommodation and location describes exactly what we expected. Really comfortable to get around Tuscany and a stone's throw from Florence (we left the car in Pontassieve and took the train ... really comfortable!) Francesco and Anna will welcome you personally and make you feel at home with their full attention! Even our 2 cats confirm the 5-star stay! Simona and Barbara

    Simona2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very good accommodation, comfortable, nice terrace and very good reception. The hosts are lovely. Thank you for your kindness. I recommend !

    Evelyne2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Francesco’s place was incredible! Especially the view from the balcony. The air conditioning was great, and the internet was a bit spotty at times. However, we had everything we needed in the quaint little town, including amazing gelato right up the road! Would definitely stay again.

    Jordan2019-07-18T00:00:00Z

    Our farmhouse, called Podere Vignola, is an original Tuscan farmhouse. It is surrounded by Chianti vineyards and it a very quiet and relaxing place but yet very close to Florence and a ideal place for those willing to explore the beauty of Tuscany.
    Apartment Torretta is one of the 5 apartments of Podere Vignola, a recently restored farmhouse located in the middle of the Chianti region and just 10km far from Florence. Podere Vignola is sorrounded by its private park of circa 43 hectars of which 17 of Chianti vineyards. Apartment Torretta is a 90 sqm apartment on two floors suitable to accommodate up to 7 people. At the ground floor there is a large living room with kitchen, fireplace and double sofa bed. At the first floor there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms with shower. Apartment Torretta has a very nice private area outside furnished with table, chairs and sofas overlooking the Chianti vineyards. Podere Vignola has a private swimming pool of 13x7 metres. It is very easy to reach Florence by car (in around 20 minutes) and by train (17 minutes to reach Santa Maria Novella, the main train station of Florence located in the historic center). Podere Vignola is the ideal location to visit Florence and all other major sites of the Tuscan region such as Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa and the Chianti area.
    Our farmhouse is located in the middle of the Chianti Rufina area. The surroundings are the most typical Tuscan scenaries. Most of the area is cultivated with vineyards (Sangiovese and Merlot) and olive trees. Going towards East there are also vineyards with Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) and Chardonnay. Since we are in the middle of the countryside it is possible to see (especially early in the morning and in the evening) deers, wild boars, wild rabbits and pheasants.
  • Ideal place to spend a family holiday and rest. Very friendly hosts and quick responses to all concerns. The house and the surroundings are a beauty even in winter. You just have to be careful on the access road that is steep and gravelly. Highly recommended!

    Mariano Luis2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • With friends we had two really wonderful days, a very peaceful beautiful place. We made a grill outside in the middle of the fields, all very comfortable and close to the city of Florence

    Granville2019-10-30T00:00:00Z

    Michelle2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is just a beautiful spot in the midst of vineyards and olive trees. Car is a must but train in town is short ride to Florence and runs regularly. Phillipo was very friendly, informative and welcoming! All in all a wonderful place to chill in Tuscany!

    Margo2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beautiful farmhouse, and we all loved swimming in the huge pool. The location is an easy drive from Florence. Would highly recommend, and hope one day to return.

    Your bedroom with a private bathroom and a private door.it is located in the amazing Tuscany's country side in Fiesole's district,very close to Florence. It's a perfect accommodation if you are looking for a quiet place to spend your holidays.The place is on the top of a hill with an amazing panorama with olive trees and woods.Florence is very easy to reach by car,train or bus.So you can choose to enjoy the country side having trekking or biking and visiting the beautiful city as well.
    the old farm house was built around 1500 AD in a wonderful panoramic location.It's the enter of an ancient playground full of fake monuments,castle,arch,towers,bridges in the woods. The house has a big kitchen with an antique fireplace.Up stairs there are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.Outside there are terraces and huge wild garden with bbq. I live here with Marco,Eugenio and three cute cats Frida,Tigro and Pavarotto.We are all creative people.I'm a taylor,Marco is a musician,Eugenio is an expert in food and beverage.We love music, art, plants and cooking good food.
    the house is located in a small village called Compiobbi,in Fiesole district,11 km far from Florence downtown.In Compiobbi there's supermarket,post office, banks,train stastion,drugstore and many shops.
  • It was so much more than I expected, the beautiful home, the great people! Valentina and the other people living there made me feel so welcome, and like being a part of the place rather than just somebody sleeping there. They are extremely friendly, and, travelling alone, I was even offered to try some of their homecooked food, another great experience. If you don't feel sociable, you can, however, have all the privacy you want. The bedroom is quite big - with its own large and comfortable bathroom, a feature I wasn't even aware of I'd get. The house is in a beautiful part of the countryside, it's easy to go on walks right from there, and to reach the city of Florence and other places is easy, too. - Thank you for letting me have such a beautiful time in your home, I enjoyed it so much!

    Klaus2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Valentina was a very friendly host. The little castle was so romantic and the view over thy city also breathtaking! We would definitely come a second time:)

    Arhun2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Valentina was an amazing host, since the house is located a bit far from the station by walking distance she came to pick me up and dropped me off .. house is very nice and artistic.. perfect and quite getaway from the busy city life.. I stayed there for 2 nights and really enjoyed it! The only downside is that the house is located 20 min walk from supermarket/restaurants and bus&train stations, so it made me burn all the calories I ate from pizza/pasta during my trip 😄

    Olga2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

    Catherine2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Valentina and Marco were very welcoming. They picked us up from the nearby trainstation and showed us the way. The location is really beautiful. The walk to the nearby trainstation is about 15 min., we could be in Florence in half an our. The place was clean and cosy. We enjoyed staying here!

    Ilse2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay. You have everything you need -- wifi, shower, kitchen, mocca. If you want - you can go to the hilly countryside (I managed to get to Florence by foot), or you can go to Florence by train (15-20 min to the station and then 15min by train to Firenze S.M.N.). Valentina and Marco were very kind and hospitable. Grazie e arrivederci!)

    Alexander2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Valentina's house felt like going to her grandmother's house. Space and space are also a very attractive place if you can afford it. Dinner and conversation were fun.

    Kyoungmin2019-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • I loved our stay with Valentina and company. For us, the walking to town was lovely & they were super helpful with pick up & drop off (when we had our luggage). Kitties are cool, kitchen easy to use, views lovely, uniqueness so very pleasant, and so on...definitely recommend!

  • A top location for this apartment located just 30 minutes from Florence, ideal for exploring the region. Very hospitable and attentive hosts with little attentions upon our arrival: a bottle of wine and a salami were offered nicely as well as a packet of pasta and a jar of sauce because we arrived late and everything was closed ! They even offered us free coffee capsules for the machine for our entire stay! The apartment was very comfortable and spotless, air-conditioned (very nice when it is 35 ° outside!) Bedding on top, nothing was missing ... The only downside: the window of the room overlooks the main street of the village is very busy, it's a shame ....

  • Florence Hills was an amazing place to stay! We celebrated our parents 30th anniversary there and had a blast! The Countryside is amazing and the breakfast was wonderful! Their staff pays attention to the details and are willing to help you plan your trip and fun activities around like wine tasting and private drivers. I would consider your logistics while traveling to and from downtown Florence to Florence Hills Resort. There are NO cabs that pick up outside of PonteSievve train station. They come from SMN train station so be aware of that if you don't rent a car. Happy customer

    Mariya2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful farmhouse in the countryside. The private garden is certainly an added value. The house is big and we were there in 15 adults. Someone had to talk about the sofa bed, but it was worth it. The hosts also let us find the necessary breakfast and drinks at home. Also perfect for those who want an isolated base to visit Firenza, half an hour by car.

  • Very nice place! Apparently quite "interesting" to get there, because it's in the hills. The garden is held natural and the house is really old and iconic. Everything is very quiet, so if you want to relax, it's the right place to stay :) Thanks again for the good communication and help!

    La nostra casa è un angolo di pace nella natura e siamo a 15 minuti di auto dal centro di Firenze e 5 minuti da quello di Pontassieve. Punto di partenza per numerose escursioni a piedi o in mountain bike. siamo vicini ad un maneggio per imparare ad andare a cavallo o semplicemente per fare delle stupende passeggiate a cavallo. Perfetta per una romantica luna di miele da sogno o per soggiorni di lavoro. p.s. meglio se automuniti visto che purtroppo questa zona è servita male dai mezzi pubblici
  • Welcome as in a family; Valeria was immediately very helpful. Impeccable cleanliness.

    Elisa2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very good week in Valéria's apartment who is a very caring host. The terrace offers a magnificent view of this beautiful Tuscany region. Very good value for money.

    Alex2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Valeria is a wonderful host. The view of the appartment is stunning with the private area to use. Thank you for the pleasant stay. Recommend! Tim

    Tim2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very, Very good choice for us (me and my partner)! Perfect place to start the trip around Tuscany. We spend in Valeria's place six nights. Having a car it was perfect place to get to any direction of Tuscany. Close to Florence we could even take a train from there (Sieci train station) instead of pushing ourself with a car to the center of Firenze. Apartment itself clean and cool, stylish and spacial room with comfortable bad and other amenities. Located on the hill it has an astonishing view with the Terrace where You can eat/drink and enjoy the view. And Valeria is a realy nice person. We highly recomend this place for long term stay.

  • authentic house in the mountains of Tuscany. Super nice hosts. Due to the thick old walls, it is very pleasant to sleep there in the hot summer. (Nicely cool) fantastic view over the nearby town of Pontassieve.

    Christian2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Convenient to visit Florence

    Francesco2019-06-17T00:00:00Z

  • My husband and I loved our time here. We spent three nights, two days here. The first we spent mostly in Florence and the second we spent in the Rufina village and relaxing at the agritourismo. The location was great for us. This period was in the middle of our trip to Italy and we had convenient access to the village to do laundry and take it easy and re-energize for the second leg of our trip. I greatly enjoyed walking the property and taking photographs. We had Alessandra prepare dinner for us the first night and it was lovely. Everything was delicious! She was an extremely helpful hostess. While we were in Florence, we had an issue with our phone and needed info that we had left in our room. We called her and she helped us get the info we needed from the room. She accommodated our early checkout time which was outside of her normal hours. The only things I would note are that the house is a bit echo-y and so if there are louder guests you will here them, but that depends on the guests themselves. Also like others have mentioned, Willie the dog is a part of the household. He is very nice and sweet and but if you simply aren’t a dog person, I could see him being bothersome.

    Megan2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely old farmhouse close to Florence but in the Tuscan countryside. Alessandra was very welcoming and provided us with a lovely breakfast each morning and her dog was very friendly and welcoming too!

    Jess2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay outside of Florence! Beautiful Tuscan views, super comfortable room and one of the most comfortable beds I encountered in Italy! I would definitely stay at Alessandra’s place again

    Nadia2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • The interior and surrounding grounds are picturesque. It’s difficult to get around town through, because there are no taxis available. Alessandra was nice enough to drive us to the station the day we left. I would recommend renting a car if you plan on exploring the surrounding towns.

    Sandra2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • I had such a great stay! The room itself is so lovely and spacious, and traditional yet with all of the facilities you need. I loved that I felt at home from home so I could go and make a tea in the kitchen when I wanted too. The outside space is stunning, I loved having the pool to come back to after a day in the city. It was also so nice to be at a property where you can get close enough to the vineyards to touch the vines, and I especially loved going to pick fresh figs. Hospitality offered by Alessandra is wonderful, she couldn't do enough for me and went out of her way to help. This is a very special place!

    Amy2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We can’t say enough about Alessandra’s place. The property itself is absolutely stunning, the home was stylish, traditional with modern touches, and the pool area was spectacular. We walked from the train station which was tricky with our luggage but fine, however if you’re staying in Rufina I would recommend renting a car. Alessandra went above and beyond as a hostess and works really hard at ensuring her guests have a wonderful stay. We woke up to a beautiful breakfast every morning with endless supply of coffee. On our first night we requested for Alessandra to make us dinner and it was beyond delicious, probably one of our best meals in Italy, it was worth every penny. She was really helpful with giving us directions and recommendations and she was a real pleasure to chat with. I would highly recommend this place! We will certainly be returning in the future.

    Justin2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Salut everyone! That’s is nice place for chill, especially if you come after big city trip as Roma or etc. Mother Nature takes you in her hands and hugs! The wine is super, the pool is cool, the bed is sleepy! Alessandra is a person!

    Sergei2019-08-17T00:00:00Z

    A little and precius Studio with all you could need, immersed into the beauty of Tuscany Countryside. The Studio is located into a ancient block of 1700 with excellent view on the landscape and the hills at about 20/30 minutes by car from florence. I offer a free wifi line, free tea and coffe, a parking slot and a beautyful garden where you can find a lot of greenery and forniture for relax. My family started a touristic business 100 years ago and now I want to share again this space with you.
    The little studio is perfect for a couple or a single that want to explore the Countryside, and Flroence too, in a cool place with all you could need for your stay. I can't install a system of condittionated air but I'll provide with a fan that is perfect for a space like mine. Anyway, the perfect climate conditions of the village will not make you uncomfortable
    In the village of Diacceto you can find everything you need for a quiet and tasty stay. We have a ancient butcher shop with a lot of typical meat and steack, a historic cafe that make a very good icecream in summer, a second bar cheaper, a little supermarket, a hairdresser, a rich filled bakery and a hardware shop, that usually have some local vegetables to sell (you have to ask them first) For vintage "engines lovers" , the month of May offers the famous hill climb of "consuma" departing from Diacceto. In the summer is organized in the country the Diacetum Festival, an event of music, cinema, theater and dance. In the remaining period of the year the nature is the true protagonist of the scene in all its aspects. The immediate distances of Diacceto are full of famous and prestigius vineyards from Frescobaldi family; a prominent Florentine noble family that have been involved in the political, sociological, and economic history of Tuscany since the Middle Ages and wine maker from 1308. There are 2 castles in the area that are used like cellar and where is possible to make tour and tastings of typical wines. Predominant is the presence of three well protected green areas surrounding conditions, among which the national park forests.
  • We had a couple of really good days in Francesco's studio. It was small, but was perfect for 2 people who want to live in fantastic Italian surroundings. Communication was easy and we got some good advice for area attractions. Here we would like to come again :)

    Sille2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is lovely and has everything you need despite its tiny size. It is perfect for a couple to spend a nice and relaxing, quiet holiday in the Toscana's beautiful landscape, though still being able to make day trips to the big and popular cities Siena and Florence. Francesco's parents (and their cute pets) welcomed us really warmly, kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.

    Katja2018-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • To appartment is perfect. It is tiny, as expected, but it have got everything you need for a short stay. There is a super market 2 minutes walk, and the little town is beautiful. The only downside we found was the public transport. there are only a few buses to and from Florence every day, but there are trains until 11:20pm to Pontassieve, which is about an hour walk from the appartment. WiFi worked perfectly and there was everything that we could need.

    Harry2018-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • I found the accommodation well and, as described in the Photos, I received Francesco's parents kind and friendly people. The room is clean and cozy.

    Marco2017-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy place and equipped with all comforts (kitchen, microwave, coffee pods) staff very helpful and of a unique kindness. I was very well and I highly recommend it

    Antonio2017-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Francesco's place is perfectly located in a quiet village and very close to the Pontassieve railway station (by car) for an easy and inexpensive transit to Florence. It was ideal for a short stay with a kitchenette and an easily accessible large supermarket (open all day) near the train station in Pontassieve. Thank you Francesco!

    Neralee2017-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Francesco's flat is a nice place out in the country side. We stayed for two nights, about a 30 minute drive from Florence but was easy to get to and the area was very beautiful. There's a bunch of nice restaurants in the area and Francesco will give you suggestions. Place nearby called "ugo" that was very good Grazie.

  • Riccardo was very accommodating and friendly. I only needed a bed to sleep in for one night but the room was very spacious, comfortable and clean. I arrived late and left very early so I didn't see much else of the place but everything was clean and tidy and, as I said, Riccardo was lovely when I arrived, helping me move my car and save on parking fines!

    Keith2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • There was a slight mix up with the accomodation but Riccardo was on top of making amends. He is very friendly and polite and certainly went out of his way to make sure I was happy. His place is right next to the station which gets you to Florence in about 30mins, very easy trip.

  • Tuscany home located just outside of Florence. Jane was an amazing host. She treated my family with a Pasta dinner upon our arrival that my family devoured. She provided a tremendous amount of local tips and advice, all of which where spot on. She knows the area extremely well and had a quick and accurate response for every one of my questions. Jane's advice on where to park in the city made getting in and out of the city a breeze. We absolutely loved our stay here and intend to come back to Jane's home again in the future. 5 STARS!

    Zach2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Jane and Marios villa. It’s situated right next to a vineyard in a picturesque Tuscan Valley. The apartment is very spacious and modern and beautifully decorated. Jane is a very generous host. Breakfast supplies were provided and the first night we arrived Jane cooked us a fantastic Pasta Dinner with all the trimmings.I especially appreciated Janes kindness and understanding for my medial condition and was most understanding and thoughtful. The apartment has two bedrooms two bathrooms and everything you could possibly need if you wish to stay in and cook or entertain. It’s an absolute must to have a car to get around and explore the magnificent county side. You will need to take sedatives to cope with the crazy Italian drivers on the roads i nearly had heart failure many times on the highways. Coming from Australia we weren’t used to it. But you must see it all the same the vineyards and country side is magnificent.

    Peter2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best place we have ever stayed! There was a feeling that we came to visit friends! After a long trip from Venice, we were met by the beautiful Mistress of the house, Jane (very friendly, detailed instructions with all information about the house, arrival, parking were sent before our arrival). We were treated to delicious pizza and excellent pasta with wine after a long journey, the house was shown. About the house — it’s just like in the picture — spacious, with lots of beautiful details, very clean and comfortable! There is everything you need for cooking, washing, etc. 2 bathrooms, laundry, dishwasher. Jane also took care of our breakfast - milk, cereal, sweets, tea, coffee, everything is there! Cozy house area and a magnificent view of the vineyards! The landlady gave us some tips about the best parking in Florence, shopping, she was very welcoming and welcoming, she speaks good English, we fell in love with her at first sight! I recommend with a clear conscience! Wonderful place to stay!

    Юлия2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in an even more beautiful surrounding. Jane is a amazing host with a lot a good tips and suggestions. Highly recommended!

    Camiel2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our week. It's a very peaceful location in beautiful countryside with great views. Jane was really hospitable and gave us good advice for restaurants and walks as well as a lovely dinner. We particularly enjoyed the wine tasting she booked for us. The apartment is well equipped and worked well for our 2 year old too.

    Laura2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Jane‘s place is a quiet hideaway in the tuscan hills with wonderful panoramic views. Everything you need is closeby: recommandable restaurants, delicious gelateria, wine tasting, historic villages and castles to visit and of course Florence is only an short drive or about half an hour away by train from Pontassieve. Thank you Jane for all your helpful advices and your good care, that startet with the very tasty Welcome dinner! We loved it!

    Anja2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Can not recommend Jane’s home enough. Staying with her was more like staying with family than anything else. Thank you Jane!

    Isabel2019-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Jane is not only exceptional, but it is beyond beautiful. She takes the experience and makes you feel like you are at home in Pelago. She made our honeymoon and our stay a memory we will cherish forever. THANK YOU JANE!!

  • Great hosts, location is great for exploring.

    Zack2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay in a scenic and quiet part of Tuscany! From Phanu bringing us a platter of local olives and cheeses and a carafe of red wine, to beautiful walks in this breathtaking part of the world, to rugging up inside on a rainy day - we loved every bit of our stay here. As others have mentioned, the drive down to the property is a bit bumpy and on a narrow lane, but just take it slow and you'll be fine. The nearest big supermarket is also a half hour away, so best to stop for groceries before you arrive at the property. Thanks again Phanu for hosting us, we had such a wonderful time in Pontassieve.

    Arabella2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous views of real Italy, around grapes, olives and SILENCE, the owner has his own wine, it is amazing, both white and red. Thank you for your hospitality.

    Robert2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place as a little spot of refuge! As long as you take into account how remote this area is and that it takes a bit of travel to get to local amenities, I'm sure you'll enjoy your time there

    Bambi2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

    Adelina2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Phanu's place is beautiful and I would definitely recommend. The house is beautiful and was very clean and spacious. We only got to meet Phanu for a brief moment but his hospitality was greatly appreciated. The small plate of Tuscan snacks and Wine were a great touch and Phanu's grapes were the best I've ever had. It is about 45 min I believe from Florence but we were also able to visit Pisa, Lucca, and San Gimignano while we visited all about 1-2 hours away. You will definitely need a car and the driveway can be a little difficult. It is very bumpy and long but manageable. After the first time you drive down it is alot more comfortable.

    Pontassieve, Tuscany, Italy

    Our 800 year old property, Grempoli, is nestled within the beautiful hills of Tuscany, just 30 km north-east of Florence. This area is rarely visited by tourists and so it still retains its traditional quiet Tuscan charm.
    Available for rent is a small self contained and private cottage, which has recently been converted from an original farm hay barn. It has one double bedroom, plus a mezzanine floor with a reading corner above the main room. A couple, can very easily and comfortable be accommodated. There is a simple though fully functional kitchen and the main large lounge room has a wood burning stove in case it should get cold at night. There are beautiful view out over the Tuscan hills through many of the large windows.
    This area is rarely visited by tourists and so it still retains its traditional quiet Tuscan charm, with all the nearly villages hosting weekly markets and many having small authentic restaurants. There are marvelous walks up into the forests behind the farm, for those that wish to be more adventurous and energetic, without having to jump in the car.
  • We spent wonderful days in Tuscany. This was especially due to our gracious host Prem. We received her warmly from her. In addition, she had provided us with a supply of food, a bottle of wine, water, coffee, fruits and vegetables in the kitchen. In addition, the refrigerator with fresh produce plenty filled. The cozy and harmonious living area was also decorated with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. This is not common in an ordinary holiday home. The small cozy stone house was exactly as it was described. It exudes an atmosphere of well-being. In this private environment of Grempoli we have been able to recover completely from the hustle and bustle of Florence and the other visited places of Tuscany. On top of that, we enjoyed the regular company of Prems dog Lumi and her cats. Prem is extremely helpful and provided us with salad and vegetables from their own garden and fresh eggs from their chickens. We will always remember these days in very good memory. We felt very comfortable here and great recovered. We can highly recommend a stay in Grempoli to anyone who wants to enjoy Tuscany, away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist routes. Thank you very much Prem - and best regards to Tuscany! Angela & Detlef

    Detlef2019-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a good stay at Prem. She is very available, kind and caring. The location is superb, the area too!

    Sonia2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Prem is one of the loveliest persons we have ever met. She is so friendly, you already start feeling comfortable and like "home" as soon as you arrive - she welcomes you with a warm smile! The house is basic but beautiful. And if ones here to regenerate, this is a great place. We were sitting outside, drinking a glas of red wine and enjoying the beautiful view. Everything was clean and made with lots of love for details. Prem helped us a lot and was always available if we had a question. And my favorite part of the stay at Prem's: here dog and cats! It was so cool! Her dog came down to our house once or twice a day to check on us :-) so cute!

  • This was our second stay in Grempoli and for sure not the last. Grempoli is a very special place. Prem is a wonderful person and welcomed us with such a great hospitality. Lumi grew a lot since our last visit and became a very friendly and lovable dog. So again our stay was beyond perfect.

  • I stayed at Premarpan's beautiful place for three nights with my wife and 15 year old son. It is the perfect size for a family of three. We had no problems finding the place with our GPS and the stop at the COOP market before we went up the hill to the property was a great suggestion made by Premarpan in earlier correspondence. The drive up to the house is fun, yet tight in places, especially when the road turns to dirt. When we arrived Premarpan met us as we drove into the driveway and made us feel welcome from the very second we stepped out of the car. Her English was great and her hospitality made us feel that we had arrived at our home away from home. The house was spotless and just as advertised. A bottle of wine, a large fresh bowl of fruit, a variety of snacks, fresh eggs, and vegetables from her garden were on the counter and the fridge was filled with essentials such as juices, jelly, milk, and yogurt, etc... Premarpan certainly had the place stocked much more then I would have ever expected. The views are beautiful, the night breeze acts as natural air-conditioning, and the serene atmosphere is the perfect respite when having just arrived from the hectic streets of Rome. For sightseeing, the train was accessed in Rufina just at the bottom of the hill, the cost was a reasonable 3.50 euro one way to Florence for each person , and the information given to us by Premarpan regarding the schedule made it an easy process. The train drops you in the center of the city and navigating Florence is easily done from that location. Premarpan was present when we needed her but gave us our space. Morning coffee on the terrace overlooking the adjacent hillside is worth waking up early for. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Jon (Minnesota, USA)

  • Prem's place is very special and our time there holds a warm place in my heart. It is beautiful. Just what we needed after visiting big cities for the last month. Prem goes above and beyond to welcome you. She is wonderful, we loved her sweet dog and kitties as well.

  • This beautiful and peaceful place is truly paradise. We got a fridge filled with delicious products and there were vegetables from the garden as well and really big basket full of fruits and fresh eggs from Prems chickens! It has spectacular view and the area itself is a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. Prem herself is a very friendly hostess and we loved her sweet cats and dog! Amazing!

  • Grempoli is a hidden gem. If you are able to book this special home, count your luck. My husband and I were taken with tyhe extraordinary natural beauty, history, lack of tourist (thank goodness) and warmth if the space. After a long drive, we arrived to find fresh fruit, beans from the garden, eggs from the farms chickens and a bottle if wine ( along w many other staples). We took morning coffee outside, enjoyed hikes and exploring the many historic towns nearby. Beyond that, Prem was a joyful host, very welcoming and always a help. We plasn to return the next time we are in Italy. Thank you ( p.s. best to have a car for this location..worth the little back road to get there).

  • Giovanni is a really nice guy. good connection. His house is perfect, as in the picture, classical and modern. Florence's countryside is like an oil painting. It's a special experience to see the sunrise and the sunset. About one kilometer to the railway station, we don't have a car, walking is totally acceptable. Casha came to the railway station to pick us up. When we left, G sent us to the railway station. What a perfect service! These feelings are incomparable to those apartments in the city. If we come to Florence next time, this will be our home! Thank you! His house is perfect, as in the picture, classic and modern. The countryside of Florence is like an oil painting.

  • It is better to have Giovanni personally lead you in to the property, especially at night.

    Wen2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A great home in Tuscany. We loved it. Excellent location and great host.

    Ramy2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Giovanni’s place was amazing. A beautiful setting and large space. Better than we could’ve imagined. Giovanni and his friend Leo treated us like family and went above and beyond to make our stay as memorable and comfortable as possible. Will definitely return.

    Dorothy2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very beautiful and clean, the exterior was well maintained and very beautifull. Good location to explore Tuscany by car and to go into Florence by train. I strongly recommend this place. Giovanni is very nice, and accommodated us within half an hour of making the reservation.

    Ryan2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location- free parking at the town train station- and a 20 minute ride into Florence on the train. The location is in the foothills of the mountain- so you get a Tuscan villa feel, while also having easy access to the city. The pool was fantastic. the aircon worked great and the beds were comfy! We would love to come back again and stay here!

    Alyson2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • The environment is good, surrounded by vineyards, if it is summer grape season is even better, there is a swimming pool, we go a little cold, can not swim, if we stay in the summer, I believe it will be better.
