Located atop the hill of the ancient Certosa abbey of Florence, immersed in the green of countryside of Tuscany, The Certosa Country House is only 6 Km from the ancient walls of downtown Florence. The house is immersed in the quiteness of the contryside but in the same time is 3 kms away from the the 'Impruneta' highway exit, in a strategic position to visit the wonderful hills of Chianti Region and the centre of Florence!

The History: For the past few centuries, The Rustico della Certosa was a simple building created to welcome peasants working on the surrounding hills. During the 1980's the house was completely renovated, paying close attention not to remove or alter those unique elements that call to mind its rustic past (the ancient exposed wood beams, the original cotto floors from Impruneta).

From the 2005 year we restored three beautifull, fully indipendent units:

The Rustico della Certosa apartment. The biggest portion of the house: a fully indipendent apartment of 200 squared metres house!5BD 3BA

The Rustichetto della Certosa apartment. A fully indipendent apartment of 95 squared metres house. 3BD 2BA

The Rustichino della Certosa apartment. A fully indipendent apartment of 50 squared metres house. 1BD 1BA

All the three apartments has a private garden area with a table, chairs and umbrella. The garden is a true oasis where you can have lunch or dinner ouside or relax during the day.

POSITION

Located atop the hill of the ancient Certosa abbey of Florence, only 6 Km from the ancient walls of downtown Florence, the Rustico della Certosa is the ideal lodging for those who wish to visit the city during the day, and relax by night, immersed in the green countryside of Florence. The Rustico della Certosa is located by the 'Certosa' highway exit, in a strategic position to visit the wonderful hills of Tuscany!

During the day it is possible to visit the countless works of art of Florence, but to also organize short day-trips in the most famouse tuscany sites.

The house is wonderfull and very spacious....the ancient exposed wood beams, and the original cotto floors from Impruneta: you'll taste the unique Tuscany style!

                                                                We were two families, parents between ages 38-42, two children age 7 and two at age 4 and a Nana at 70. We all had a great time here. The house was clean, and the yard gave the kids lots of room to run around. Alessandro was very responsive via-email while booking and very helpful but cell phone does not have VM so beware. The price was great compared to all the other locations we scouted. A couple of downside to the place, not enough for us to not re-book here as once we made the request it was handled immediately.

                                                                The owners lovely parents live downstair and they have a dog. On a couple of occasions we had to step around dog poop that was still left out. And the walk way is dark once it gets to be night time so beware. A couple of nights the little children were still up at 10 or 11 clock at night and yelling or screaming outside, so if you have children who are light sleepers beware, other then that it was very quiet, after the children heads to bed.

                                                                The kitchen is well stocked with supplies, the coffee drip pot is very slow but will do the job. They were very kind in brining us a bigger expresso stove top and a new drip but that drip was equally slow.

                                                                We did not have heating but we didn't notice as it was warm that week. However, the day of our departure we did not have hot water, but with two phone calls it was resolved. Like I said, Alessandro is very responsive and helpful and these things really wouldn't deter us from rebooking with him. And one last thing, we actually never met Alessandro himself, he never came to meet us, we were passed off to parents, brothers, and other family members. I think in our stay we saw 3 different people. All were very helpful and really sweet, and if you are looking for a great place this is it!

                                                                Wonderful stay!

                                                                We could not have found more gracious hosts. The location was perfect for trips into Florence and the Tuscan countryside. We spent two weeks and could have spent more time. The apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed. We ate our breakfast on the terrace daily. The road up to the farmhouse was narrow but my husband soon became an accomplished "Italian driver"!

                                                                This villa was amazing!

                                                                We loved our stay here! The villa was HUGE! We had seven adults staying here and had ample space, bedrooms were bigger than our bedrooms at home, the rooms were tastefully decorated, everything worked as it should. The road leading up to the villa is really narrow and winding, which was an issue for our 9 passenger van we rented, but we found that to be true in lots of places in Italy. The proximity to Florence was about 7 km, and the Autostrada entrance was at the bottom of the hill, making easy access to Sienna, Pisa, etc. The owner took really good care of us. He was there when we needed him and even helped us get a parking ticket paid (oops!) Thanks again for a wonderful time!

"Cuando el año está de huevos, hasta los pollos los ponen". La relación calidad/precio de la casa es la mejor que hemos conocido nunca. En la cocina había más menaje que en mi casa. No faltaba de nada. La atencion de Ariana exquisita, y las indicaciones de la web para llegar son clarísimas, no hay forma de perderse. He recomendado la casa a varios amigos, por que se que me lo van a agradecer.
