We offer our guests a self-catering holiday in Tuscany, just 15km from Florence, at an exceptional price. We are in an ideal position to enjoy both the countryside and visit the sights of Tuscany. The barn is now an independent, open plan stone cottage with its own garden, which can sleep up to 5 people.

An ideal Position!: La Gamberaia is just 15km from Florence and yet is in the countryside surrounded by hills and fields. The closest shops are in the village of Molino del Piano, just 3km away. It is easy to get to Florence by car, train or even by bus (there is a bus stop jus 5 minutes from us). At the same time, the main tourist attractions of Tuscany are within easy reach; Fiesole, the Mugello and the famous race track, Siena, San Gimignano, Voltrerra, Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo, to mention just some of the main towns which deserve a visit. The countryside around us offers ample opportunity for walks and there are many vineyards to be visited, for those who are interested in wine. We are also close to public swimming pools, tennis courts and a riding school.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is world famous for its beauty. There is a variety of landscapes and some of the most important art cities in the world.

The places of interest are almost too numerous to mention.Florence, Fiesole, Siena, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa, the Chianti area, the Mugello. You can choose to explore the countryside or learn more about the history of the Medici family, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, just to mention a few of the historical figures who have made Tuscany what it is today.


We are just 15km from Florence in the area of Pontassieve which is 10km south of us and halfway between Santa Brigida, in the hills behind us, and the village of Molino del Piano.

The closest shops are in Molino. In the summer there are many local festivals in the surrounding villages where you can eat well at reasonable prices and enjoy the cool of the evening. There is no lack of restaurants and pizzerias in the area surrounding us.

"A real Italian experience"

We stayed at Casa Gamberaia in June. My husband and I loved every minute. The cottage was very spacious with all the modern comforts. I particularly liked the upstairs bedroom with the tiled floors… More

We were very lucky to have such pleasant guests to compare country living experiences with! We hope we will see them again.
