Epitome of Tuscany
The perfect spot if you are looking for a peaceful Tuscan retreat. The remote building, its surroundings and views are breathtaking. The owners were very kind and saw to it that we were settled in and happy with the place, as well as where to find wood for the fireplace. Plan to arrive well before sunset to enjoy the views and to be sure to find the place as it can be a challenge. Overall the place is stunning, we are already making plans for our return!
We had the best stay ever at the villa!!

We loved every minute
Thank you Gabriele and family

A quiet and beautiful Tuscan retreat
We had the loveliest time at Gabriele and Simone’s property. They, and their father Giancarlo, are attentive yet discreet hosts, who share their gorgeous estate overlooking Florence. The beauty of the place, and of the area, cannot be overstated. It is convenient to Florence, yet away from the bustle of the city; it allows you to relax while being within a quick drive of all you want to see. A (small) car is essential. I can not recommend this property enough; I will definitely be back!
Blissful Tuscany Retreat
Another wonderful stay - yes, we are repeat visitors to the property. Comfortable and clean with great amenities and responsive and sensitive owners on site to deal with any issues which might need addressed: the boiler in our property was not retaining pressure and the matter was swiftly and efficiently rectified. Surroundings encourage rest and relaxation and provide a comforting contrast to the vibrancy of Florence and the other sites. Would recommend without hesitation. Good food and drink shopping facilities within a very short drive ( a car is essential) - and the convenient nearby tram stop to Florence is a boon.
Beautiful typically Tuscan property ideal for couples
We stayed in one of 3 modern conversions of barns and other outbuildings attached to a grand house in stunning gardens and olive groves overlooking the suburbs of Florence. The apartment was very well equipped with all the mod cons including aircon, dishwasher, washing machine, wifi, etc. but all wrapped in a perfectly restored stone building. The family who own the property were very kind and accommodating and happy to provide us with information on local restaurants and attractions. There are 3 or 4 restaurants within 5 minutes drive (we would highly recommend Poggio il Masseto), and a main town Scandicci within 10 minutes drive with supermarkets and major transport links including a tram into the centre of Florence - removes all the hassle of parking in the city. Around the property are various walking routes into protected woodland and hills which were very pleasant and an opportunity to find local wildlife including deer and potentially more exotic beasts. In summary would highly recommend this accommodation for a quiet out of town retreat with easy connections to local tourist hot-spots including Florence (15 mins), Pisa (1 hour), Volterra (1.5 hours) and much more.
Will come again
The mansion 'Spazzavento' is located in Scandicci, urban district of Florence and just 10 minutes distance from the historical center of this beautiful Tuscan city. You can enjoy relaxing walks along white country paths, long bike jaunts along vineyards and olive groves and bracing horseback riding. Being just 7km from the highway A1 allows you to organize daytrips to Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo and Viareggio which is right at the seaside called 'Versilia'.
