About The Experience

This ancient country villa offers an elegant Tuscan experience for large groups of families or friends. Situated just 25 minutes from the city of Florence, the location of this villa is convenient for visiting the towns of the Chianti region. While at your villa, your group can relax by the private pool or in one of the many indoor and outdoor common areas. Whether you would like to sit back and take in the views of the surrounding countryside or tour local wineries and towns, this villa is the right choice for your large group!

Location Description

This villa is located just less than five kilometers from San Donato in Collina, a small Italian village with a post office, grocery shops, butcher, and pizzeria. San Donato is located in the Florentine hills, very close to the city itself. After driving for about 20 miles, you will reach Florence, a majestic city world-renowned for its art and culture. Go here to shop the Ponte Vecchio, marvel at the statue of David, step back in time at the Pitti Palace, or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery. Of course, you could also simply relax in the Piazza della Signoria with a book or a refreshing drink. Of course you can also hop in the car and wander through the Chianti, tasting locally made wine and investigating many of the famed hill towns. Try Greve in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti. Day trips to other well-know Tuscan locales, such as Siena and San Gimignano, are also possible.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
It was perfect and wonderful - peaceful, relaxing the villa suited our needs perfectly. The owner was wonderful and accommodating and the property was in excellent condition.
Enjoyed Most:
The space - it was spacious inside and out - each family member of which there were 4 couples and 4 singles, had our own bedroom and bathroom. The outdoor space was great - outside for breakfast, pool all day long, in the shade in the garden for the middle of the day, and then back on the deck in the evening - perfect.
Enjoyed Least:
The road getting there was windy and narrow.
Surrounding Area:
Enjoyed Palm 100 for take out and eating in - very accommodating, great and relaxing.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Nothing within walking distance - needed a car
Check In Out:
Excellent - no problems

Overall:
GOOD! Unseasonal heat was a bit of a problem, but the fans provided were a real asset and quite used --- 24 hours per day!
Enjoyed Most:
Relative isolation and absolute absence of any noise or background annoyance.
Enjoyed Least:
Pool-area and installation which were quite complete was at a lower (recessed) level from the residence and a bit isolated. The location and surrounding plastic fence were obvious screens from the dust of an adjacent farm road, but meant that there was NO VIEW from the pool area itself. This was a pity.
Surrounding Area:
Good roads and trails in the extended area provided daily walks and access--also used by people living in the area. Their presence was never a problem!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Rignano sul Arno, the nearby town, took fifteen minutes by car (5 miles) and it had all the requisite shops and services, including doctor, pizzeria, COOP supermarket, train, and bus stations.
Tips or Restaurants:
Nearby restaurant (100 Palms) was a real find that was used daily. Quality and breadth of the menu were unequaled!
Directions:
GPS was invaluable in the surrounding area; we paid 20 Euros/day with our rental car.
Check In Out:
A house book, with suggestions, etc would have been appreciated. The caretaker, Roberta, was very helpful and provided information when requested.
