Description

This is a 4 bedroom villa located in the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, just 20 minutes from Central Florence. It is a perfect base for larger families or groups of friends who are looking for the privacy that a villa offers. The property enjoys use of a circular swimming pool, surrounded by loungers and with views across the open countryside.

A cypress lined driveway leads to the property. Guests enter the villa via a large entrance hall. Doors then lead to a large living area. This is a lovely, welcoming room, decorated in an Oriental style with comfortable sofas arranged around a central fireplace and additional seating laid out to the sides of the room for those who prefer a quieter spot to relax in. There is a table, perfect to play a game of cards. There is also a piano which guests are welcome to use. The furnishings are elegant and include antique pieces that have been in the family for generations.

Also on the ground floor is a brand new kitchen, refurbished in 2014. This is well equipped with dishwasher, oven, toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge freezer and gas hob. A dining room was also refurbished in 2014 and has a table seating up to 12 guests. Finally, there is a small bedroom on this floor with single bed along with a bathroom with basin and toilet.

Upstairs the property has four double bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. Three out of four of the bathrooms have shower, bidet, toilet and sink whilst the last bathroom has a bath with overhead shower. Two out of the four bedrooms also have a small TV with a basic list of satellite channels. The master bedroom has a large window with steps leading up to the terrace overlooking the Italian garden. This suite also has its own small separate kitchenette with electric hob, sink, fridge and cooking facilities. 

Outside, there is a garden with raised seating area with table, chairs and BBQ, ideal for al fresco dining. The garden is extensive with sixteen hectares given over to woodland suitable for walks, picnics and mushroom picking!

The nearest village - Falciani - is just under a mile away. It has a small grocery store and a couple of typical Tuscan restaurants. The village also has a renowned restaurant - 'Sor Paolo' popular with many Florentines who go there to enjoy the famous 'Fiorentina steak. There are also opportunities nearby to enjoy horse-riding, fishing, tennis and golf.

The property does not have air conditioning but always stay very cool, even during the main Summer months.

Please note that the owners live on site. They are incredibly helpful and are happy to help answer any questions you may have during your stay. Equally, they ensure that the privacy of guests is respected. On request, the owners can organise bridge classes, painting and pottery decoration courses or cookery lessons. The latter are led by Arianna, the daughter of the owner who is a superb chef! Cookery lessons cost 40 euros per person. Guests who do not participate in the cookery lesson are still welcome to join the party for dinner after the lesson at a cost of just 20 euros per person.

Beautiful villa...

We're absolutely delighted with the service Jo provided us. She was very responsive to emails, also she was extremely helpful and found us the perfect villa for our budget and group. Would highly recommend to friends and will definitely consider booking with Bookings For You again. Beautiful villa, very spacious and filled with beautiful antique furnishings in the living rooms, and a wonderful modern kitchen. While there were other apartments on site, our villa was very private with our own garden area, and Arianna was a wonderful host who made us feel at home.

This villa was absolutely perfect for us

We were a group of 4 couples, and this villa was absolutely perfect for us. Very spacious, with beautiful decor throughout and a modern kitchen. It was incredibly hot weather (32°C +- most days), but the house itself was nice and cool during the day (both through shade and air conditioning), and our host Arianna provided us with fans for the night time. Arianna really made us feel right at home, and even left a welcome package of snacks and wine on our table at arrival. Relaxing by the pool was what we did most days, but there were a few highly rated restaurants nearby (we recommend Osteria La Porta del Chianti in Falciani), and the villa itself is handy for touring the area; just a short hop into Florence, and an hour's drive from Pisa Airport. The views from the villa are stunning, and our house had it's own private garden area for relaxing in the evening with a glass of wine. Would be happy to visit again :)
