This incredible holiday home in Chianti is located on the hills, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, facing the Arno valley and the Pratomagno mountain range, just south of Florence (15km).
It is a Tuscan medieval tower house and is part of a hamlet. The tower, originally built with white limestone in the 12th century, was restored between the 15th and 16th century assuming its current aspect. This farmhouse consists in 3 self-catering apartments for a total of 9 accommodations but is better occupied by couples since the bathroom is close to the double bedroom.
The flats are respectively one on the ground floor of the main house, and one on the ground floor and the other on the first and second floor of the tower. The apartments are very comfortable and furnished with period furniture. Originally the ceilings of the tower were decorated with frescoes, today traces can be found on a panel in the flat on the first floor.
In the accommodations there are reference books on Renaissance art and on Florence and Tuscany. There is no swimming pool. Pets accepted. On request the owner is available for cookery lessons on Tuscan and medieval dishes. It is also possible to organize a dinner with the owner.
These accommodations are within reach of all commodities being situated at 16 km from Florence and 3.5 km from the town of Pontassieve which has shops, supermarkets, banks, a post office and even a railway station. Next restaurant and food shop are located in Rosano, ca. 2.4km.
Excellent position for visiting many cultural and natural attractions such as the famous medieval towns of Tuscany and its parks. For sport lovers there is also the possibility of following the numerous itineraries around the countryside directly from the farmhouse.
