For agile adults looking for something unique, you have certainly found it here!

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The restoration is very good quality. Most of the furnishings are Ikea so they are functional and attractive. Antiques and paintings add to the atmosphere of the property.
Enjoyed Most:
Location in the old area of Figline Valdarno is lovely.
Enjoyed Least:
The stairs make it a property suitable only for the physically able. The lack of headroom on the mezzanine floor bedroom above the main lounge makes it most suitable for children. The headroom in the loft bedroom is also limited, but better than the other area. There is a lack of any storage in the mezzanine floor. There are no fire control appliances such as smoke detectors, and no second exit or fire escape. We would have liked to have had an outside area.
Surrounding Area:
Good location in the Chianti region. Nice drives to wineries and historic locations.
Tips or Restaurants:
Property is well-provided with most essential items. A good supermarket is a 10-minute walk, with small stores much closer. Restaurants are within a 2 to 5 minutes walk--did not hit a bad one.
Directions:
We were met at the railway station by the owner, who provided directions to the property. All very easy.
Check In Out:
We paid 15 Euros/day for air conditioning.
