About The Experience
Take a stroll through your backyard and see nothing but flourishing vineyards, valleys, and mountains around you while renting this Tuscany farmhouse apartment. As an ideal setting for a family, this Tuscany vacation rental is located between Florence and Siena, which means there are plenty of activities and places nearby to keep you occupied. Such adventures include ancient churches, medieval castles, and authentic fortresses, as well as a live music and theater festival held in July. Adults will enjoy going wine tasting, as you will be in the Chianti hills, and children will love going swimming in the pool. Either way, you will adore celebrating farm holidays in Tuscany.
Location Description

The property is located two kilometers from the medieval village of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa. Tavarnelle Val di Pesa dates back to the Roman Ages and is two kilometers from the property. In addition to shops, restaurants, and markets, Tavarnelle has a rich heritage and many ancient buildings, much like the entire Chianti region. The main sights include the church of Santa Lucia at Borghetto, Saint Peter’s Church at Bossolo, and the Museum of Holy Art. Each July, a summer festival is held featuring live music and theater shows as well as markets offering tastes of local recipes and dishes. San Gimignano is a great place to go for a day trip. As one of the most visited towns in Tuscany, it is known for its rich history dating back to the Etruscan times and is full of life and things to do. Popular attractions include the famous towers, the 12th century Duomo, the People's Palace, and several museums dedicated to artwork and archeology. There are also plenty of wine tasting tours, art galleries, shops, and delicious restaurants. Numerous celebrations and gatherings are held every year including a music festival featuring theater, ballet, and opera performances, and a Medieval Harvest festival where the people of San Gimignano dress up as knights and play medieval games and have tournaments. Naturally, you’ll also want to take day trips to the other famous Tuscan cities such as Florence, Siena, and Arezzo.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
It is difficult to find the appropriate words to express how wonderful our experience at Casa della Fioraia was. The view we awoke to every day was spectacular. The villa is nicely appointed with great thought to ensuring guests have everything needed to make this and unforgettable time. Home away from home.
Enjoyed Most:
There are so many points that I could detail, but for me - hands down it was the people. Lucia and Roberto were so attentive to assisting us and ensuring our time in Tuscany was special. The property book is nicely organized with hints and tips for everything from food to wine. One member of our party required medical attention and Lucia went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the appropriate attention and care was found.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing! This property exceeded our hopes and dreams. This is a very special place.
Surrounding Area:
The drives around the countryside. Coming home at the end of a day and having a wonderful place to enjoy the company of our travelling companions. Any and all services were nearby. The food, the wine, and the local people were magnifico.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Tavarnelle val de Pesa. Not withing walking distance but very easy to get to. Walks near the property are plentiful.
Tips or Restaurants:
We subscribe to the packing less theory. Everything you will need to enjoy your stay is right there at the property. Lucia will stop by and share all the best of the local area. This is her hometown and she knows the area. She will listen to what it is you are looking for and will not steer you wrong.
Directions:
Directions were wonderful. We did use a GPS. Arriving from Siena did require a bit of flexibility as it appeared directions were written from Florence. This simply served to make this a bit more of an adventure.
Check In Out:
Check in and check out were made easy by Lucia. RentVillas does a nice job of detailing what is required.

Overall:
This was a wonderful place to stay with family and friends. Close to everything we wanted to do, yet far enough away to enjoy the spectacular view and the quiet.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was breathtaking.
Enjoyed Least:
We pretty much enjoyed all of it!
Surrounding Area:
Really enjoyed the little towns. The owner of the property gave us directions to all the local eating places!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Can't remember the name, but it was not in walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Just ask the owners. They were more than happy to answer all of our questions.
Directions:
We used a GPS so had no problem locating the property. The owners were waiting for us when we arrived.

Overall:
It was beyond my most vivid imagination!! It was like coming home to a part of myself that had been missing, but I did not know where to find it!
Enjoyed Most:
I loved the Tuscan sun beaming through my bedroom window. It beckoned to me each morning.
Surrounding Area:
I was fascinated by the flow of each day and the workers in the vineyards and the workers pruning the trees. I became involved in the day to day living of the people in the villages. I looked forward to garbage pick-up day; I know this is probably a little more than you want to know, but Italy fascinated and lulled me into a restfulnessis that I needed.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Noche, was the nearest village, a quiet place of homes and rental apartments. It was within easy walking distance for us to take our garbage and to meet the village dog! His was owner was an elderly gentleman and his curiosity was as great as our own.
Tips or Restaurants:
Lucia provided us with a map of many restaurants, markets and sight seeing attractions. The villa is located for easy access to many attractions, not far from Firenze/Florence, the train station or bus pick-up. You can also arrange for a personal driver or chef for you visit or tours. It is also perfect for just relaxing and enjoying the Tuscan landscape.
Directions:
I would strongly suggest a GPS, if you're driving. Reading the road signs can get tricky!! It would help, if the directions would continue to point out "in the direction of". This would be very helpful, using the AutoStrada's like a US turnpike.
Check In Out:
Lucia, was very helpful, beyond her position as keyholder.
