Antica: Firenze (Florence) Province Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 91933ha
Antica is a spacious Tuscan country apartment well suited to a family or two 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 recently 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.
About the Property
Located on a Chianti Rufina vineyard with panoramic views in peaceful Tuscany
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.

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.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I live at Borgo di Sopra with my family. I am English and my husband is Italian with a lifetime's knowledge of places to visit and eat throughout Tuscany. We are happy to share our knowledge with you and help you get the most out your holiday in this part of Italy. Can we offer you a glass of wine, spread out the map of Tuscany and help you draw up your itinerary?
Why the Owner Chose Pelago, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy:
Borgo di Sopra is a fabulous mix. You truly feel away from it all, in the midst of a nature in a place of enormous beauty. There is lots of wildlife here, from deer to pheasants, hares, porcupines and all sorts of birdlife. Our apartments all look out onto the vineyards of the Castello di Nipozzano. These are cared for almost like a garden. It is wondeful to watch the passage of the seasons from winter when the vines are bare to summer when a tractor in the vineyard looks like a small boat on an ocean of green, to the autumn when the leaves turn gold. At the end of the day, everyday, the light softens and intensifies ........and it is always beautiful. Yet, if you get in your car and drive our bumpy stone road and then the leafy country lane, in 6 minutes you find yourself in the bustling town of Pontassieve. Restaurants and shops, banks and the train station - it all feels a world away from our Borgo and yet it is so close.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
At Borgo you can walk uphill to the lovely Castello di Nipozzano. There has been a castle here since 1000, and you can understand why. The position dominates the surrounding countryside. But there is also a handsome Villa from the 1700s. Its nonchalant aristocratic elegance, charms and intrigues you into wandering into the wine store, perhaps even into booking a tasting. It is worth it. The wines are impressive and the laid back, welcoming style is uniquely Tuscan.
