Pontassieve in Valdisieve apartment description

Escape into rustic Chianti Rufina and enjoy the timeless pleasures of Tuscany - less than 30 min from Florence!
This small group of buildings was once part of the first line of defences of Renaissance Florence. Now on a working vineyard, they have been converted to create an attractive villa and apartments. Situated in a prestigious Florentine estate which produces an impressive Chianti, there is a panoramic hilltop castle within walking distance. Florence is an easy train ride away, saving the headache of city parking. For 2 people, you can choose between Cipresso, a mini apartment with kitchenette, or Alba and Vista, which both have full kitchens and separate bedroom. If you are travelling in a group of up to 4, select the tab for Villa, the converted barn with two spacious panoramic terraces, two double bedrooms and bathrooms. For larger groups, up to 7, select Antica & Cipresso. Alternatively, groups of up to 13 can rent the whole Borgo. All apartments have their own private terrace with views across the valley.

Approach Road: Please note that there is a 1km rough, farm road to approach the property. The surface of the road is in loose stone and not tarmac. Most of our guests arrive in small hire cars without problems. Ask us for more information if you are concerned.

Antica + Cipresso: Pontassieve in Valdisieve Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 91933ha

Antica is a spacious Tuscan country apartment well suited to a family or up to three couples travelling together. The building dates back to the 1500s and its massive wooden beams and handmade terracotta tiled floors are in the traditional style. Renovated just 2 years ago, Antica makes a comfortable base for holiday or longer stays. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms plus 2 bathrooms. There is also a single bedroom with bunk-style single bed. Downstairs, the large sitting room with impressive traditional open fireplace is a comfortable spot to relax. There is a separate dining room/kitchen. Outside the apartment has a small terrace with panoramic views across vineyards and olive groves to a distant castle. By opening up an internal staircase from the sitting room down to the mini-studio Cipresso (see tab) Antica accommodate up to 7 people. In this case an extra terrace and garden area are added.

                          The 2 main airports in Tuscany (Pisa and Florence) are easily accessible . Short breaks are feasible all year round! You'll know you have made an escape from routine, though, when you drive down the winding approach road. You pass through vineyards with a historic castle and our property above you in the distance. You are now in the Nipozzano estate of the noble Florentine family of Frescobaldi. From your apartment, a pleasant walk, with superb views, will take you up to the castle. There the wine is aged in the historic cellars and you can taste and buy all Frescobaldi wines. Numerous other panoramic walks dot the area (the historic monastery of Vallombrosa is not far either). For renaissance culture, we are near Florence and Arezzo. Regular trains from Pontassieve station (5 minutes away) to central Florence take only 20-25 minutes. Alternatively, designer outlet discounts from Gucci, YSL, Todds etc are to be found at the Mall, outside Leccio, 15 minutes away.

                          Other Activities: Wine tasting.
