Do you need a break from the city? Slow time down at our historic villa, tucked quietly away in the classic beauty of the Tuscan countryside. We offer a Triple room (one double bed and one single bed with private bathroom). We are far from the hustle and bustle of downtown Florence, yet we are only 20 minutes away. Our villa has stood atop this hill, with wide, open views of the surrounding area, for more than 1200 years. From your base here you can stroll along lost trails and stumble upon ancient stone houses and vineyards with rows of vines, their grapes ripening in the Tuscan sunshine. At about 1km from the villa, sheltered by shady woodland, there is a tranquil lake in which you can swim, or simply while away a few hours reading, picnicking, chilling out or zoning out! The villa itself consists of a spacious ground floor which is given over to a living room and a dining room.

Nearby there is a small supermarket and bar in the Capannuccia, you can reach it with a pleasant 15 minutes walk. There are also a golf course, tennis courts and a swimming pool, as well as some newly opened Outlets Stores. All reachable in 10 minutes by car. So, if you'd like a peaceful nights sleep, waking to the morning sounds of birds chirping and the aroma of a home-cooked breakfast being prepared, then we have the perfect country home for you. Your host, Gabriga, is your typically enthusiastic warm-hearted Italian from the south of the country, where welcoming guests is a tradition and an art. His English is not perfect, but he has the Italian gift for expression and communication is never a problem. His partner, Fan, is from Beijing in China, and her English is perfect. She loves to travel, create and cook! Which is excellent news because we provide dinner service upon request, so you have the chance to experience true home cooked Italian and Chinese food, made with the best natural ingredients. Just 13km out of the heart of Florence, we are connected by public bus, the No. 31, which will drop you in Grassina, just a few minutes away. We’ll come and pick you up and are more than happy to take you back to the bus station whenever you need. We look forward to
