Agriturismo on a magnificent estate near Florence
This property belongs to agriturismos numbers 126 and 103, which are also on my website. It is situated just a few kilometres further on from the main road, hidden in the hills. It is of course wonderfully quiet here. Three buildings together make up the property: A B&B (that can be rented exclusively) a cottage with an apartment that sleeps 4, and a smaller cottage for 2.
The B&B and the apartment
The 5 B&B rooms are situated in a characteristic terra cotta red villa. On the ground floor is a spacious kitchen, a living room and a dining room with a large table. Outside is a beautiful veranda where you can enjoy your breakfast, in summer, with a view of the garden. The rooms – including a family room – are on the first and the second floor. And ideal for a larger family: the villa can be rented exclusively!
The house next to it, the former limonaia, has been lovingly renovated as an apartment (B) with 2 bedrooms. The apartment has a private terrace with a dining table. There is a sauna for shared use. Both houses are surrounded by a large garden with a beautiful lawn, and share the outdoor pool.
Free-standing cottage with spectacular views
The smaller cottage is about 500 metres from the B&B and apartment B, on a hill top that offers a spectacular view! The cottage has a large garden and a small private pool (about 2 x 4 metres). It is also fitted with its own spa with steam bath and jacuzzi. It is an ideal place for couples who set store by quiet and privacy.
Breakfast is served in the B&B’s cosily furnished living room, and if the weather is fine, on the large roofed veranda. Breakfast is included for guests of the B&B. Guests staying in apartment B can order breakfast, for an additional fee, which is then served either in the B&B or on their own terrace. Guests of the cottage can also order breakfast for an additional fee. They will then have to walk the 500 metres to the B&B, but I cannot imagine a nicer morning work-out than going along this pretty country lane with breakfast to look forward to. In the garden, there is a large BBQ for guests to use.
If they want to go out for a drink, guests of this property can visit the wine bar at agriturismo No 103, which is only a 10-minute drive away. They also serve simple but tasty dishes, every evening between about 6 and 8 pm, accompanied by a decent/good glass of wine. You can dig into a cheese platter, various salads (e.g. mozzarella with tomato and basil), pizza and ribollita (a Tuscan soup). Booking in advance is key here! Alternatively, 2 km down the road is a nice restaurant where you can enjoy typically Tuscan food in a relaxed atmosphere.
A wonderful, quietly situated agriturismo offering several accommodation options varying from a room with breakfast to a romantic cottage for two. Florence is only a half-hour drive away, and there are a few outlets nearby, for those who like shopping. You can leave it to the professionalism and hospitality of the friendly owners: Here you can really relax, revel in the Tuscan landscape and savour the local cuisine!
