Description

The Frantoio delle Grazie accommodation is a pleasant and relaxing alternative for visiting Florence and Tuscany but for staying outside the city itself. Guests can easily reach the city centre (by car, by bicycle or by public transportations) but they can also enjoy Tuscan countryside pleasures as well. The hill of Settignano is the natural frame for this panoramic area protected by Italian Superintendency of Cultural Heritage and Environment. Its natural surroundings are dominated by olive groves, vineyards, cypresses and oak-trees. Nearest shopping centre is far only 1 Km.

The Villa is a traditional Florentine countryside home: its structure goes back to the XVIth Century. The recent restoration has maintained its original aspect and joined the ancient character together with modern amenities. The charming Florentine atmosphere of Il Frantoio delle Grazie is revealed through the use of typical Tuscan materials such as stone, terracotta tiles, beams and wrought iron. The interior

“Brilliant and beautiful location for smaller groups of travellers”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2012

This apartment is located just 3km from "downtown" Florence which only takes around 10 minutes to drive to and park. However, you would never know as you are really based in rolling hills with beautiful vistas in every direction. Simone (the owner) was extremely helpful and explained every thing very well. He lives in a house about 200yds away so is available if you have any difficulties, which we didn't. The apartment was well appointed, but for those thinking of renting the Uva apartment, please note it is upstairs with no lift, so you will need to be able to carry your luggage up and down. Also there is a well appointed kitchen but there is no cooker, just a two ring hob, which makes eating in a little more challenging. Beds are definately on the firm side, but this was perfect for us. There was free wifi, which was really great. Overall, we had a brilliant holiday, the boys loved the pool and the location, and we would recommend this accomodation for a budget break in Tuscany if you can't afford to rent a whole villa or your party is smaller. Final tip, it is an easy 80 minute journey in from Pisa airport, which is cheaper to get flights to. You should consider flying in to this regional airport. We came in with Easyjet, but BA and Ryanair fly here too.

“Heart of Toscana”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2012

We had a wonderfull stay in the Uva apartement. The apartement was absolutely clean and cosy. All the property is well-kept, the owner is absolutely kind and always available in case of need. It is an ancient mill in the countryside but so close to Florence downtown. Very good the free internet connection, the pool and the barbecue. easy access to the high way if you wish to reach other Tuscan cities: Siena, Pisa, Lucca. You can easily reach Florence historical city centre by car or by bus. We absolutely recommend this property.
