A gazebo provides the perfect area for outdoor dining or for simply spending an evening in the fresh air enjoying one of the spectacular sunsets that this valley offers – its picture perfect vistas appearing to be the artifice of an expert hand. Once the sun has set, you will be left with only stars to keep you company, along with, perhaps, the humming of cicadas on summer nights; timeless and simple elements that in this marvellous setting add to the magic which dilates the senses and sharpens memory, aiding to capture a never-to-be-forgotten moment. The place is also ideal for families with children who can play on the lawn benefiting from the healthy countryside air.

Location description from manager

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is considered one of the most beautiful regions in Italy with stunning scenery, outstanding food and beautiful cities full of art, history and architecture and for that reason many Tuscan towns have become UNESCO protected sites: the main square in Florence, Siena, the Piazza dei Miracoli at Pisa, San Gimignano, the historical centre of Pienza and also the Val d'Orcia. Tuscany is also considered the birthplace of the Renaissance and is also the birthplace of many famous Italian artists, painters, sculptors, musicians such Dante Alighieri ("the father of the Italian language"), Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and Botticelli and that’s to name just a few.

The gently rolling Tuscan hills are lined with cypress trees and bathed in vineyards and olive groves which leave everyone who comes here with very special memories indeed. Tuscany has so many attractions and towns worth visiting that you would need to spend months to really appreciate everything there is to see and do here.

We recommend guests to visit Pisa with its leaning tower, Livorno and the Maremma coast for its spectacular beaches and landscape, Siena with its Piazza del Campo, Volterra and San Gimignano, smaller medieval villages but with lots of character and famous for its original medieval towers, Certaldo, the birthplace of Boccaccio and also Montecatini with its renowned spa offering curative waters and beauty treatments.

As you can see Tuscany has so much to offer no matter what your likes, hobbies and interest. For those who enjoy walking, biking and horse riding the options are endless. Other attractions include skiing at the Abetone ski resort which is just an hour and a half away from Florence, and the widely acclaimed Tyrrhenean beaches (between Viareggio, Pisa, Livorno and Grossetto) just over an hour away.

Last but not least is the Chianti. Nestled between the towns of Siena and Florence the Chianti region has become famous on an international level for its stunning hilly landscape covered in vineyards, cypress trees, hilltop hamlets and winding roads, and breathtaking vistas. A visit to Chianti gives access to an endless source to culture, architecture, scenery and many other attractions. Chianti is also internationally well known for its wine, Il Chianti Classico, olive oil and exceptional cuisine. Visiting the Chianti is a must for anyone coming to Italy! When in the Chianti land stop at Greve in Chianti, buy your local wine and stop off for a pannini at “Da Emilio” – the best sandwich/delicatessen store ever known to exist. When at Panzano in Chianti visit the famous macellaio – butcher “Dario Cecchini”. He also has a restaurant open for lunch and dinner (www.dariocecchini.com). Great steaks, meat anything you want. The meat he uses comes from animals specifically raised for him alone).

Furthermore, just 40 minutes from Florence you will find the Mall shopping outlet http://www.themall.it/en/ - a gallery of the world’s most exclusive designers available at bargain prices offering customers a very unique shopping experience.

San Donato in Collina

For shopping, the villa is quite near one of the largest factory outlet malls in Tuscany. Here one can conveniently acquire some of the most famous brands such as Dolce e Gabbana, Coveri, Ferrè, Fendi, Cavalli, Cardin, Klein etc…, enjoying savings up to 40% or more. Further north, guests can shop at the separate outlets of Prada and Gucci.
The distance from Florence downtown is exactly 20 minutes.
In the nearest village about 1km500: you can find all kind of shops as baker, post office, alimentary and in Bagno a Ripoli about 8km you have a big supermarket.
Restaurant: ”Centanni” 5km da casa. “Nuovo Ranch” 1km500.
