My parents and partner and I were lucky enough to spend 9 nights here. The house is large and fitted out with good quality furnishing. This house is used and well lived in by the owners so it is not your regular holiday rental. After arriving we felt very much at home for 9 nights and it was hard to leave the place to explore Tuscany. The beautiful pool is set back from the property and we used it daily. The olive tree next to the pool has a day bed/tree house which was perfect for reading. Property is extremely private and peaceful we would highly recommend it to anyone. Florence was an easy drive away and close by a large shopping centre had everything we needed to stock up for our stay. We had a local Lady Monica come several times and she cooked for us and kept the house clean. It really was such a lovely holiday.
After two years my close family, consisting of seven members within three Generations, spent again one week in an elegant and spacious vacation home near Lastra a Signa, not far from Florence (Tuscany). This separately and quietly located and completely restored house (obviously a former farmhouse) on the top of a hill with a marvellous view to the Tuscan landscape is generously invested and is provided with four to five self-contained sections with separated bedrooms and bathrooms. At pleasure everybody has the possibility to occasionally withdraw himself. The house is well equipped with a great kitchen with nearly all accessoires, a combined dining room and living room as well as with an ample reading room. An ambitious library is available as well. The different rooms are individually and tastefully furnished in a characteristic way and appealing for adepts. An ancillary house next to the front entrance is perfectly suited to take all kinds of meals if weather allows. A barbecue area alongside the house with an adjacent pizza oven and several terraces for various purposes are also available.
To maintain further contacts to the external world nearly all facilities are in place (e.g. internet connection for laptops, i-phones, or tablets etc.).
The house is surrounded by a huge site with many olive trees and fig trees suitable for an extensive walk. Approximately 100 to 150 meters away from the house (downward) is a magnificent swimming
pool with fresh and clean water surrounded by a lawn for sunbathing and several kinds of beach chairs. It is a real pleasure to use the swimming pool.
Furthermore it is to emphasize the convenient location of the property concerning the accessibilty of famous cultural sites (Florence, Lucca, Siena, Arezzo etc.) by car or train. The train station is not very far from the house. Several Tuscan vineyards are also easily available.
Altogether, it can be summarized, that the described lovely property is suitable for relaxing vacations combined with the experience of Tuscan culture and lifestyle.
Our stay at this charming farmhouse exceeded our expectations in every way! The house is lovingly and artfully restored and updated, rustic and elegant at the same time. It's comfortable and well equipped with a great kitchen and wonderful books. The grounds are gorgeous; the photos simply cannot do them justice. The home is perched on a small mountain accessible on a windy, semi-private drive, surrounded by olive groves. The pool overlooks the valley with a stunning view. It's difficult to want to leave the property to do the many interesting nearby excursions!
We went to all the restaurants recommended by the very gracious homeowner, and enjoyed them all. Our favorite was Da Delfina, which entered the rankings of my top 20... anywhere. Another highlight was our tour and lunch at Capezzana, which the homeowner facilitated. Beautiful wines and award winning olive oil , enjoyed in a Renaissance villa. Our lunch was delicious and cooked by the cooking school there.
The home is really well located, with a short drive to nearby Signa or Lastra a Signa where one can access the train. Getting into the city center of Florence is a breeze and takes about 20 minutes with trains running frequently. We also drove to Lucca one day and wished we had had more time there because it is a completely charming walled city. The guys did a bike tour with Ibiketuscany and loved it, but it was quite challenging.
The homeowner is very accommodating and helped us with suggestions and arrangements. I do recommend having the cook prepare a few meals. When we arrived late and jet lagged, there was a wonderful meal waiting that was very delicious. We had her cook for us another night as well, and it is quite a treat after a long day of touring!
So, we cannot recommend the property more highly!
We spent 3 glorious weeks soaking up Tuscan sunshine, Florentine art and history, and Italian generosity--all in this wonderful farmhouse sitting at the very top of a hill. And we were just 20 minutes outside of Florence! Photos simply don't do it justice; the sounds of the train running through the valley, the neighboring farm dogs chatting with each other during the early evenings, the smells of something wonderful being prepared in the old kitchen.
Four U.S. couples joined us--each for at least a few days, but no more than a week at a time each. The local train station is less than 10 minutes away and runs twice hourly right into the heart of historic Florence (SMN)--a 17 minute ride. From there, trains such as the 90 minute nonstop train to Rome, run regularly. Some of us took that train to Rome for a "day trip"; others spent a couple of days in Rome. And we ALL agreed it was wonderful to be returning to this villa because of the peace and quiet!
The villa is rustic, but completely modernized, including WiFi. Baths are modern; the kitchen has a wonderful gas stove and oven AND a dishwasher. Washing machine? Absolutely. And it cannot be more ZEN than to hang laundry on the outdoor clothes line, taking advantage of sun and breezes every afternoon. I might miss that the most.
The owner put us in touch with a lovely local cook/housekeeper who saw to
it that our party (which varied in size week to week) ate homestyle Italian food
at our own villa table twice weekly. The cost of this service was VERY reasonable and the food was first class. Wonderful to come home to after a day of touring downtown!
Although we did not use the large swimming pool, it is beautifully located just a 30 second walk through the olive grove, on a knoll offering a spectacular view of old ruins and vineyards. Summer visitors will simply fall in love with the site of the pool and the beauty of the gardens overall. Several terraces surround the villa, and each presents it's own beautiful vistas. There is an outdoor fireplace too! Perfect for sipping chianti on a warm (or let's agree--even a cool..) evening!
Fifteen minutes from the villa is a HUGE "warehouse like" grocery and homegoods store---open daily! Every possible type of food, local grown and internationally made too is available, as well as things we really NEED.
I can't imagine a more perfect combination of privacy and convenience for
a dream vacation to Tuscany!
We had a fantastic stay in this very Tuscan yet personal house hidden in the most charming part of the region. To wake up every morning with the most spectacular view and drink the morning coffee while looking out on the hills and smelling the fragrance of all the flowers in the garden, have given us a remarkable memory. Even if we are a big family, everyone found their own space in the house and garden and the vincinity to Firenze and other pretty villages made it possible for everyone to find something to do during all four weeks of our stay. The owners engagement and service mindness made the stay even better than what we ever could have pictured. There is no question we will come back to this place in the future.
Em uma colina em frente à vila Medici em Artimino, a casa fica a 20 minutos de carro do Oeste de Florença, embora você pode decidir que a maneira mais fácil para visitar é de trem (12 minutos do Lastra a Signa Station para o centro de Florença). Siena, Lucca, Volterra, bem como a Renascença menor e cidades medievais, são todos de fácil acesso.
Além do turismo, uma parte interessante de qualquer estadia é a descoberta do vinho local altamente considerado, Carmignano, com as propriedades que oferecem passeios e degustações, (os proprietários podem organizar visitas ao melhor imobiliário local).
Há excelente passeio da casa, bem como equitação e campos de ténis nas proximidades.
Mantimentos essenciais podem ser comprados na loja da aldeia, que é também a padaria local, a 1km da casa. Há bons mercados locais e um supermercado muito bom, mesmo para os padrões italianos, em Lastra a Signa. O mercado de alimentos em Florença é certamente vale a pena visitar. Guias e informações locais estão disponíveis para os hóspedes na casa.
A unidade até a casa é muito íngreme!
