In the countryside of Montelupo Fiorentino, a town in the immediate outskirts of Florence

and so famous for its ceramics that it's called “The Town of Ceramics”, there's a charming quaint Tuscan construction surrounded by olives and secular cypress trees.

The ancient and indipendent barn of Il Colle di Sotto enjoys of a 360° panorama from a green and quiet hill, opening directly over spectacular views of the stunning Tuscan countryside.

Il Colle di Sotto is the ideal place for anyone who desires to unite art, history and relaxation in the sweet nature of Tuscany.

The barn of Il Colle di Sotto can sleep up to six people and it is composed of a luminous, multicoloured and fully equipped kitchen with the latest mod cons, two double bedrooms with double antique iron beds and two bathrooms with cabin shower. Upstairs there is an open-plan upper-gallery with a large sitting room, with two sofa (one is sofa bed for two people), equipped with Satellite TV, DVD player, stereo with CD player, books, a fireplace with firewood and an antique Tuscan chest of drawers.

The original architectural details have been preserved and incorporated into a new, elegant and comfortable design.

The barn has been restructured using traditional materials: local stone, exposed wooden beams and Florentine terracotta floors, giving a touch of simple elegance.

Here and there, you will find precious detail such as fine paintings, ceramics from Montelupo and typical ornaments in character with the building.

Outside there is a spacious luminous veranda, equipped with chairs, deckchairs and a table, where is possible to sun-bathe and to have splendid open-air breakfasts or romantic suppers, and where our guests can relax anytime they want with a unique, peaceful and suggestive view.

The structure is equipped with heating, safe, free internet wi-fi, alarm system, automatic gate, car parking space and a spacious independent garden.

The wonderful swimming pool (10,5x7,5 mt.) with Jacuzzi pool, furnished with sun beds, reclining armchairs, table and chairs is surrounded by lawns and landscaped gardens framed by the rolling wooded hills beyond, is a lovely spot to relax and have a cooling dip.

It has been built near the olive grove away from any splashing sound that may be created for those who prefer to enjoy the calmness of the Tuscan countryside.

Use of the pool is reserved for guests renting Il Colle di Sotto only.
