About The Experience

It is hard to beat the location of this hamlet just south of Florence and only 1 km from the town of Grassina. The charm of the old structure is combined with pleasant furnishing and beautiful views to provide a comfortable stay close to the heart of the Chianti region and to Florence, as well. There are 15 apartments in the complex, accommodating groups of any size.

Location Description

Located just 1 km from Grassina, which is on the Chiantigiana 222 road, the hamlet is well located for day trips throughout Tuscany. The town of Grassina is south of Florence and has a movie theater, outdoor market, restaurants, pizzerias, antique fair, sports facilities (tennis, golf, and a horseback riding center), and buses into Florence (a great way to travel into the city!). Florence is close at hand for day trips, as well as the entire Chianti region, along with Siena and San Gimignano.

Nearby Attractions: Explore the following top vineyards for tasting opportunities in the region: La Sala Winery (San Casciano), Il Solatione Winery (Mercatale Val di Pesa), Cennatoio Winery and Villa Cafaggio Winery (Panzano). In Florence, explore Bargello and the Opera del Duomo which house two of the greatest collections of sculptures in the world. Along with the top museums and churches, be sure to visit the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of the History of Science and the Museo Stibbert, which has a famous collection of armor.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. I can't express how much all my friends and family enjoyed their time at the property.
Enjoyed Most:
The property is perfect. It is set in the most typical and beautiful of Tuscan landscapes. It is consistent with the architecture and simplicity while providing every need for a very comfortable stay. The staff at the property are its best asset!
Enjoyed Least:
I loved everything about the property, but you do need to have a car if you want to enjoy everything about the surrounding areas.
Surrounding Area:
It is perfectly located. Close enough to Florence without being in the city. The surrounding towns and wineries are incredible and worth exploring. The scenery is incredible, with wildlife, wildflowers and access to many beautiful walks.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Grassina. Yes it is when going into town - however, if you are loaded up with groceries or a bit older it is a strenuous return walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
We found two great restaurants in the area. I Tre Pini - is only a ten minute drive away and is a fantastic restaurant for small or large groups. They were incredible over the month we were there we took groups from 4 to 40. The food is amazing, the staff are warm and friendly and the atmosphere is great. Jimmy's pizzeria were also wonderful - we had Pizza delivered once a week for 50 people, they hosted us in their restaurant on numerous occasions and they are genuine, local and helpful - as well as great food!
Directions:
Yes - the address is 62 Q - not just 62. GPS and map apps send you to 62 as it doesn't recognize the Q. When it tells you you have arrived follow the road around to the left and the next gate on the right is the property.
Check In Out:
Luigi and the team, as well as RentVillas and their team, made it so easy for us. We are Australians renting through the US for Italy - but they made it easy. I can't recommend the place or their agents enough.

Brendan, June
