Cozy winery near Florence
Over the years I have visited a lot of agriturismos, but seldom have I come across such a special, charming one as this. Fantastic views, lovely furnished apartments, fine wines and nearby: Florence. Add to that the hospitality of the owners and the staff and you have a super agriturismo! This beautiful wine farm is located east of Florence, amidst the vineyards on the rolling Tuscan hills. The wine cellar has existed for many years, but it was only in 2007 that the owners had the manor house converted into holiday homes. With the renovation and decoration of the apartments they have managed to retain perfectly the style of the old Tuscan farm life, and they have added some nice modern aspects.
In the nearest village (located just 1.5 km from the agriturismo) are several shops and restaurants. Florence is 15 kilometres from the farmhouse and is easily accessible by train. The train station is just a five-minute drive from the property. So the agriturismo is the perfect base for visiting Florence.
There is a stone barbecue for common use with tables and chairs. Among the olive trees is the beautiful swimming pool with sun terrace, chairs, umbrellas and sunbeds. The pool has a shallow end for children, so it is easy for them to get in and out of the water. In summer they organize an aperitivo, drink with snacks, once a week for all the guests. And of course with wine from their own wine cellar! 5 minutes drive away you will find their wine cellar. On request wine tastings, guided tours and cooking courses are organized. Recommended ! And as well on request children can have a ride on the house donkey. Just ask for Paola, she loves to organize this all for you!
The agriturismo has eight apartments, all tastefully decorated in warm colours and fine materials. Each apartment has a private terrace or patio with table, chairs and parasol or pergola. And each apartment has its own place at the pool with parasol and sunbed. The apartments have air conditioning, TV, and in the kitchen a 4-burner stove, dishwasher and microwave. Some of the apartments have an oven.
This is a charming, quaint agriturismo, particularly its carefully designed apartments. Therefore every year it is one of my best sellers. A perfect base to explore Florence. But cities such as Siena (45 km), Arezzo (50 km) and Lucca (70 km) can be visited properly in one day. One of my most favourite agriturismos, that's for sure!
