The home is perfect, the views and sunsets were absolutely amazing! The host is very informative and timely. Everything about this place is exactly what we wanted " Ben*****É um lugar com uma incrível atmosfera da Toscana, bom para fazer um contraponto com a lotada Florença. Muito tranquilo, bom para descansar. Fácil de chegar de carro se o seu navegador não te mandar por estradas muito rurais. Uma vista linda de Florença no por do sol! ***** Cynthia

The Tower dates back to 1100s. Surrounded by olive groves, cypresses and vinyards, you can relax in the park and swimming pool solarium and “touch” the Brunelleschi’s Dome before getting down to Florence. Florence, 25 minutes away, offers breathtaking sunsets.

This place is clean, comfortable & has spectacular views of Florence, the gardens are lovely and tranquil, a great place to stay if you want to be out of city & experience Tuscany with vineyards nearby. A car is recommended to reach this destination & is well worth it.

We had a wonderful time staying here! Stefania was very thoughtful leaving wine and jam for us upon arrival! It is nice to stay outside of Florence and get away from the crowds! It is easy to find lots of places for wine tasting as well!

This is an amazing property! The views of Florence are breath taking, and the house is beautiful, well appointed, and comfortable. We stayed a week and explored the whole area. As the advert says, a car is essential! Stefania is extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend…

Stefania is the true fairy of Toscana. We lived as in fairy-tail for five days - wonderful historical house and a tower, marvelous vews and pretty garden, evenings with a glass of wine by the fire.
