About The Experience

For a family or small group of couples that wish to immerse themselves in the pleasures of Italian life, this Tuscany villa for rent is the place! You will enjoy your own quiet vacation amidst the beauty of your own peaceful Tuscany villa rental. Day trips to visit nearby cities are a breeze from this Tuscany holiday villa, via the conveniently located SS2 SuperStrada highway from Florence to Siena. It is in the small towns and villages of the Chianti District that you will really enjoy exploring and discovering the many excellent restaurants and vineyards that offer the traveler the chance to sample the bounty of this historic region.

Location Description

In the heart of the Chianti District equidistant to Florence and Siena, an unpaved private road leads down 150 m to this beautiful, spacious farmhouse set in a wonderful quiet hilltop position. It is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, and sentinel cypress in a landscape shaped by centuries of farmers' patient toil. The views across the rolling countryside encompass the Castle of Santa Maria Novella and stretch as far as the towers of San Gimignano. The town of Fiano can be reached by a 15-20 minute walk through the fields.

Exterior Description

The main section of the villa consists of an 11th century tower to which two sections were later added. When this typical Tuscan dwelling was completely and carefully restored, its original structure was consolidated while retaining as much as possible the original materials and features. The villa is one of the central structures on a working farm of 69 acres which specializes in the production of extra virgin olive oil. Adjacent to the villa is another farmhouse where the owner lives (two people), but the outdoor area of the villa (garden, pergola and pool) are completely private and reserved for the exclusive use of the guests. The expansive views from the villa and its garden include the Castle of Santa Maria Novella and stretch across the rolling countryside as far as the towers of San Gimignano. In the large garden surrounding the villa, there is a private gazebo equipped with a barbecue and dining area and lounge chairs positioned to overlook the valley and San Gimignano. The private pool is 10m x 5m. There is a pool shower and WC provided in the garden under one of the two loggias attached to the villa.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Overall it was very good to excellent.
Enjoyed Most:
The location and view of Tuscany were absolutely stunning.
Enjoyed Least:
Perhaps the mosquitoes and some of the modern conveniences we are used to in the States--but this is not inherent to the property by any means.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty and proximity to everything--the wineries and beautiful walled cities.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Fiano and Marciella were the closest towns.
Tips or Restaurants:
Mosquito repellent and an ABSOLUTE MUST IS A GPS for driving.
Directions:
GPS coordinates would have been extremely helpful.

Overall:
Overall, we loved it!
Enjoyed Most:
The beauty, yet comfort, of the villa, the outside areas, and without question, the views.
Enjoyed Least:
If I have to answer this, I guess I would say the noise of the workers in the early morning.
Surrounding Area:
Visiting the many small hilltop towns and enjoying the incredible food.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Fiano and Marcialla were each about a mile away. They were walking distance but we wouldn't attempt to walk on the narrow roads.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa was very well equipped, especially with necessary food items. We would suggest a sharp knife or knife sharpener.
Directions:
We did use a GPS but it was most helpful when traveling between other hilltop towns.

Overall:
The property, location, and welcome dinner were excellent.
Enjoyed Most:
The location was excellent for touring the region and the house had a lot of charm with a great view.
Enjoyed Least:
We found the lack of privacy an issue, as the owner's mother lived steps away from where we spent 90% of our time.
Surrounding Area:
The trips to Siena, Florence and surrounding towns was wonderful.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring sprays and creams for bug bites.
Check In Out:
The arrival was great and the meal provided amazing.
