About the property

4 Beds Apartments In A Stone Country House On Isolated Hill, Nature, Relax

Farmhouse La Favilletta is in a very strategic position, only 15 km far from Florence, but immersed in the typical tuscan countryside, surrounded by a peaceful atmosphere with amazing panoramic views over the hills.

Apartment Il Portico is at the groundfloor of the main building and can host 4 people in his 2 bedrooms (1 double, and another double with separated beds that can be combined). It has a living room with tv set and a sofa bed. There is one bathrooms with shower.

Outside a large private terrace with table and chairs to eat 'al-fresco'

Is ideal for a family or two couples.

The holiday house house can be an ideal base from which to explore Tuscany (within easy reach of Sienna, Arezzo and the Chianti region). In the nearby, in the villages of Pontassieve or Rignano (both 10 Min. by car), you have all the main services: supermarkets, restaurants, ecc. In Pontassieve you have a really efficient railway station to easily reach Florence, there are lot of connections to Florence central station, five minutes walking from the Duomo.

There are lots of things to do when you are at the house: it can be funny to take some walks in the green paths with vineyards and olive trees beside you (walking or riding the bicycles that you can find at the house), or 'picking' vegetables directly from the garden, or discover ancient villas and romantic churches in the close old wine road of Chianti Rufina and Pomino full off cellars where you can taste the typical local red wine.

We are settled in a green area between Valdiseive and Vadarno two very charming regions in Tuscany, in a certain way not so famous or celebrated. In the Valdisieve there are many forests and mountains that can be explored with the car but also through many trekking Path: from Monte Giovi to La consuma mountain, from Santa Brigida to Monte Bonello and Acone. There is a ring that links many interesting places.

About Bernardo Dionisio

My name is Bernardo and i managed my holiday house since 2008. I try to do my best ro respect the essence of Tuscany style n the decoration of apartments and outside. I give tips for eating and do things in the surrounding area during the stay.

I like to know people from all over.

Bernardo Dionisio purchased this farmhouse in 1975

Why Bernardo Dionisio chose Rignano sull'Arno

This property was buyed by my grandfather in 1975 when i was only for. It is a haouse of the seventeenth century. First a place for parayes, then a farmhouse with animals, barn, ecc ecc.

It took a long time to restore the first floor (apartment La Favilla), that was the one in wich me and my family lived during the seventies and eighties.

In 1996 we restored the barn that now is the apartment il fienile (2+2) that is 10 meters far from the main building.

In 2006 we restored for the second time Apartment Il Portico that is at the ground floor, under apartment La Favilla.

So i have many memories of this house when i was a kid, memories of the many party we make in this house 20 years ago.

Now things have changed as this house has more and more became my job. But is very beautiful to give other people the opportunity to stay in a so beloved place

What makes this farmhouse unique

The benefits of this holiday house are first of all the position. High, on a top of the hill the house gives the opportunity to enjoy unique views from everywhere and especially from private terraces.

There are many services, most of them are free: wifi, parking, pool, laundry (shared), parking, barbecue.

Our area is not very exploited and is still very authentic with many attractions.

The garden is big with and the property give the chance to have a good privacy, even in the high season
