THE APARTMENT
This apartment is an ideal retreat if you travel on a budget, long for the privacy and quiet of the countryside, but still want to be in touch with Florence. It used to be the carpenter's workshop of this villa in the hills south east of Florence.
This apartment is small but quaint: it includes 1 large bedroom with queen size bed, a kitchenette, a living area with sofa bed that sleeps one, and bathroom with shower.
For the winter, there is central gas heating, a cosy wood-burning stove, and supercomfy toasty bed warmers.
Directly accessible from the large gardens, it comes with its private garden table with umbrella, and bbq.
It lays under the shade of the cypresses, so it is always cool.
Safety box also available.
Available in the winter months for minimal daily fee, heat paid separately based on consumption.

THE BUILDING
The estate includes one shaded and one sunny garden, and a small olive grove shared with the other families in the building.

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY:
The tower portion of this villa dates back to 1146. The rest of the building was added on in the 1400s , 1600s and 1800s. Many lives were saved during WWII by my grandfather who risked his own, by offering hiding and shelter to total strangers in this villa. We like to continue this tradition by welcoming people from all over the world. Our children are the 6th generation in this home. The rest of the villa is lived in by family members.

Access to all private grounds: the sunny side garden, the shaded garden under the century-old holm oaks and the olive groves.
Numerous hikes start from our village, and a little forest is accessible without even leaving the property.
Also shared BBQ, picnic area and swing.
If you play the piano and wish to practice during your vacation: there is a well tuned Baby Grand Steinway Piano made in the '30s, in the common area, accessible at all times.

We live in the building, so we are always here in case of need, or simply to share a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
We may be on vacation a few weeks in the summer, or a week end here and there. When so, our cousins who lives on the premises will make sure you have assistance in case of need.

ADDITIONAL OFFERS AT THE VILLA:

Take a fun hands-on COOKING LESSON where you learn how to make pasta from scratch, then stay for dinner in the top of the villa: that includes your creations and a whole meal, including home-made dessert and wine. The bonus: beautiful views, unlimited toppings of wine, and coffee. And you don’t have to do the dishes!. Cost per person: 60€ Credit card accepted. 5€ discount for cash payments.
If you are on a budget or prefer to have a romantic dinner at your place, choose option B:
take the 2–hour class and walk to your own private kitchenette with your freshly made pastas, and make your own dinner with your hand-made creations!
60€, for 2 people. (55€ for cash), 25€ for every additional person. Credit card accepted. 5€ discount for cash payments.

THE VILLAGE
Local deli, freshly baked bread, cheeses, wine and beer shop, green grocers, great cappuccino and very best butcher of the region; all right across the street, 5 minutes walk. Just be aware of opening and closing hours...(long siesta breaks: 1-5pm)
NO RESTAURANT WALKING DISTANCE, but you can buy all the food you need to make your own meals, and the local butcher also offers lasagne and grilled chicken to take home.
Very nice family style trattoria only 5 minutes driving from home, with great variety of pizza, primi, great steak, desserts, and even some seafood. Also plenty outdoors for kids to run around safely.
Plenty of marked hikes to enjoy the area.

TRANSPORTATION
20 minutes drive to Florence, or 45 minutes by bus.
Greve 40 minutes,
Prada outlet 25 minutes,
Arezzo 45 minutes,

Use of car not necessary if you are planning to just visit Florence during the day and simply relax and enjoy the countryside, but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for evening outings and explorations of Tuscany. The bus runs on weekdays until around 8:00 pm; but only 2 rides in the whole day on Sundays and holidays!

- 4 Cats live on the property, but NOT in the apartment. They are neutered, vaccinated and friendly and - like all cats - curious. You are welcome to keep them out of your living space, or invite them.

My children are the 6th generation in this medieval villa, and when our budget doesn't allow us to travel, we like a little bit of the world to come to us. My grandfather - a personal hero of mine - hid and saved many lives (often complete strangers, and foreigners), from the fury of the Fascists and Nazis during WW2, in the many nooks and crannies of this old home; and this has created in his heirs a tradition of opening this home to strangers: we have been hosting since 2011. My husband Marco is a retired professional yachtsman, and now a talented and passionate cook; and together we have been offering wine tours and pasta making classes since 1998 with the Accidental Tourist. One of my favorite quotes is: "if you don't believe in connections, you miss them".
