About The Experience
This Tuscany farmhouse and apartment are located outside of Florence on a private estate that produces its own wine and olive oil and features walking paths where you can view the Tuscan landscape. A restaurant run by the owners is on the premises where excellent local dishes are served. The accommodation is comprised of a main villa and an apartment making it ideal for a group who would like privacy.
Location Description

The property is located four kilometers from Malmantile, where there are food shops, and five kilometers from Lastra a Signa. Situated on the left bank of the Arno River, Lastra a Signa has restaurants, markets, shops, and a train station for quick trips into Florence. It dates back to the Middle Ages and still has ancient remnants including the Chiesa di Sana Maria alla Lastra, Podesta’s Tabernacle, and the Praetorian Palace. Today, the annual Ancient Flavors Festival is held each December when a celebration of culinary traditions takes place. It will be easy to spend a lot of time in Florence from this location, because you can easily take the train into Florence from the Lasta a Signa train station. See the Duomo, the Academy Gallery, and Palazzo Vecchio firsthand, then go shopping in one of the open-air or flea markets filled with antiques and other goods. For more high-end shopping, be sure to visit Via dei Tornabuoni. Don’t forget to marvel at the statue of David or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery either! Other day trips can include Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena, or Arezzo.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Fabulous.
Enjoyed Most:
Private and quiet and a great view overlooking the vineyards.
Enjoyed Least:
Only that it was impossible to get around without a car.
Surrounding Area:
A little hard to find things.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montelupo or Lastra a Signa; both were too far to walk, so a car was definitely needed.
Tips or Restaurants:
Remember the laundry pods, converters.
Check In Out:
Cinzia, the chef we hired through RentVillas, was fantastic. The staff were very responsive and couldn't be more helpful. A great experience all around!

Austin, October

Overall:
Our stay at Casa de Signa was tremendous. It is a farm house that once processed olive oil from orchards right on the property. We celebrated our 30th anniversary with family and friends and this property was perfect for our group. Neri and Sara set up a wonderful first night dinner at the restaurant on the property as well as a custom menu for the night of our anniversary. We took a tour of the winery as well as a tasting of wine and olive oil produced by Tenuta San Vito. The whole experience at Casa Signa was magical. I would recommend this property to any group of friends or family looking for the Tuscan experience!
Enjoyed Most:
Casa Signa is in a fantastic location. The Lastra a Signa train station (service to Florence--16 minute ride--, Pisa, Cinque Terre and many other Tuscan locations) is only a 5-minute drive from the farm house. The Florence airport is only 30-minutes by car. There are stores to buy groceries nearby as well as a restaurant on the property and restaurants in the small towns in the surrounding areas. The property itself is kept in tip-top shape. Each guest room has its own bathroom, coffee maker and refrigerator. Casa Signa has stunning views of the surrounding area and of the town of Lastra a Signa. Location, location, location!
Surrounding Area:
Charming towns and breathtaking views.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montelupo...you could walk, but it would be a long walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
You might want to bring or buy bath soap (just a small bar is provided in each bathroom) and we had to buy extra toilet paper and dishwasher soap. You can have house cleaning for an extra charge if you like.
Directions:
We used our Google Maps and got turned around; once we figured it out, we were fine. Being off the beaten path was nice.
Check In Out:
Everything was easy.

Veronica, April

Overall:
It was fabulous. Overall it was a great experience and would stay there again.
Enjoyed Most:
Property sits on a 300 acre vineyard. They have a winery and tasing room within walking distance. They also have a restaurant about a half mile walk from house. Very pleasant in the evenings.
Enjoyed Least:
From a critical stand point - the weather was very hot and they do not have AC. That would be OK because they have ceiling fans upstairs however there are none in the common rooms downstairs. Also no screen downstairs and there are mosquitoes. They should put in ceiling fans and screens. Kitchen was barely usable and needs to be upgraded so that you can properly cook.
