This elegant Tuscan vacation rental is found between Florence and Pisa and makes the perfect place for exploring all of Tuscany without long day trips. Only a short distance from the historic town of Montelupo where you will find shops with the traditional Tuscan ceramic, great Italian restaurants and classic cafes.
The owner has completely restructured the hayloft that made up part of this typical Tuscan farmhouse, and turned it into a delicious two bedroom two bathroom with full kitchen and living room area.
The eat-it kitchen area is fully equipped with all modern day amenities including a full size refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher, stove with oven, toaster, electric kettle and many other small touches that make a vacation house – a home away from home.
There are two bedrooms with bathrooms. To the left of the kitchen you will find the first of the two bedrooms, tinted in a baby blue. The bedroom has a double bed and an en suite bathroom. The bathroom has a shower, WC, bidet and sink.
The second bedroom is located behind the kitchen. You will find a second bathroom with a shower and right next door you will the second bedroom. This is a double bedroom with a beautiful wrought iron bed stand. This bedroom has French doors which lead out to the covered terrace overlooking the pool area.
The nearby Montelupo Fiorentino has a beautiful historic center and we recommend for dinner the restaurants „Antica Osteria del Sole” (excellent for Pizza and beef) or the “Osteria Livornese” (for delicious fish meals). For dessert try the well-known ice cream shop “Malagigi” – all in the centre of Montelupo.
