Tuscan apartment on a wine estate near Florence

Good to know

  • This property has final cleaning costs to be paid on site. See below the calendar for details.

This apartment for 4 is on a Tuscan winery just south of Florence. The original farmhouse and annexes have been converted into apartments that allow you a taste of Tuscan life, surrounded by the vines that produce the estate's excellent wine.

All the apartments have been decorated with care and verve by the Laura, the matriarch of the family; La Ronda is reached via a walkway above the old gated entrance to the farmhouse, hence the name reminiscent of the medieval walkways on castles. It has a private outdoor space close to the entrance and, like all apartments, shares the well sized pool a short walk away.

Accommodation

La Ronda is reached along a short walkway that makes it feel private and a little secluded. The front door opens directly into the living room with comfortable chairs. A small kitchen is at the back of the room with a dining table. There are two comfortable bedrooms, both doubles and each with their own bathroom with shower.

The apartment is sympathetically furnished in keeping with the rustic style and pieces to decorate the apartment have been carefully selected to a tell the story and its origin.

Outside, close to the start of the entrance walkway, is a secluded patio furnished for eating al fresco, but you can also enjoy other areas in the grounds for an evening aperitivo, find shade under a tree to read… and of course enjoy the cool waters of the pool.

Worth knowing

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
