Villa | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
Torre di Montioni goes back to the 12th century, with the external stairway and the loggia being added later, and until the end of the 1800s it was used as a summer country residence. The current owner renovated the whole building a few years ago, bringing the original architectural features back to light, and lives in the separate farmhouse with his family. The two apartments in the tower have been given over to holiday lets. The choice of furniture was guided by the desire to find very good quality antiques that would merge with old ambience, and the two apartments are both very well finished and comfortable. They are equipped with dishwasher, stereo with CD player, WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS and many other accessories. Both have private external areas with table and chairs for dining outside. The panorama is typical of the florentine hills, with olive groves and vineyards alternating with broad-leaved woods. 2.5 kms away at Rosano, you will find food shops, a restaurant and riding stables; Pontassieve is about 5 kms away and has all the main services you might need, including a public swimming-pool and the railway station which is just minutes from the centre of Florence, so you can avoid the problem of finding a parking space. Florence is about 18 kms away and the motorway about 15 kms. The lady owner will cook typical tuscan cuisine for your delight at a convenient price, she is also able to organise cooking classes.

The Tuscany region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
The Italian countryside is the place to enjoy an authentic experience, to appreciate the real old traditional flavours, or just to watch life go slowly and peacefully by. The Tuscan hills, historical villages, cellars where you can taste some of the regions greatest wines. The world famous towns of Florence and Siena, as well as many other beautiful, well loved Tuscan towns like Pisa, Volterra and Montelpulciano all within a short drive.
The Chianti countryside, where you will find many of Tuscany's most charming locations, such as San Gimignano, has been a popular destination for international travellers for many years and we are delighted to welcome them all to our portfolio.
