The most striking characteristic of this traditional Tuscan villa with three self catering apartments is the stupendous view you have over medieval Tuscany and the famous city of FLORENCE.  Soft rolling hills and Tuscan castles meet your eye as you walk out to the pool terrace.  These beautiful  holiday apartments are perfect for a large group or a family who enjoys space. 

There are two apartments behind the main villa with private garden area - one on the first floor and one on the ground floor. Next to the pool is a unique villetta - completely independent with a fabulous view of Florence and the Cathedral.  Each apartment is furnished in a charming mix of antiques and modern comfort. 

The owner has a well tended garden area which surrounds her own private manor as well as each one of the rental apartments.  Each apartment has two bedrooms and will accommodate from 4 to 6 persons - sofa bed linens are available upon request.  The kitchens are fully equipped and offer many modern amenities.

Besides the striking panorama at these vacation apartments, one will find the comfort and ease of being less than 2 km from public transport to Florence, Tuscan restaurants and Italian cafes, not to mention the charm of the old Tuscan towns.  Public transport is located within walking distance of the villa.  Day trips to Rufina, Florence and several local castles and monasteries make this a Tuscan treasure.

Views superb, villa very clean, facilities excellent especially the pool, vinyards outstanding as was the complimentary host vinyard wine supplied on arrival. Hosts extremely nice family, very respectful of your wishes and very helpful with local knowledge. Neighbours very helpful to tourists also. The whole holiday was made very easy to organise by the agency and we would reccommend their services. Attention to finer detail by the agency and the host family made it a great family holiday. Well done by all.

Anywhere you visit in Tuscany is beautiful! Be careful of some of the restuarants in the popular areas of Florence as they are very overpriced for drinks. (8 euro for a GLASS of red wine!) The location of the villa is outstanding. Everynight was a beautiful sunset. Only took 15 minutes to drive into the centre of Florence.

Ristorante Donnini at the bottom of the hill was very good and I recommend it.
The view from this villa is absolutely amazing. It is such a peaceful, secluded setting with an excellent view of Florence and the surrounding countryside. We were so pleased with the setting - it is just idyllic!

This villa was VERY private and the A/C was truly appreciated since we experience the HOTTEST week in Florence during this stay. The view of the Duomo of Florence from the kitchen window (sunset especially) was spectacular. Delphin and Leoni were very nice.
