The Grape Vine 4

Tuscan apartment on a wine estate near Florence

Nice little touches

  • While you're surrounded by vineyards on the estate, a short walk will take you to a train station and you can be in the centre of Florence within 30 minutes.

Good to know

  • This property has final cleaning costs of €22 per person.

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; the Grape Vine is striking as one of the bedrooms has been carved out of the old wine tanks in the old farmhouse. Each apartment has its own individual furnished outdoor space for rerlaxing, and there is also a communal covered area for barbecues and outdoor dining.


Step inside from the vineyard. As was common with many Tuscan homes, the kitchen is the heart of the home with an open fireplace and also encompasses the living area. There are two comfortable bedrooms, one twin with french doors opening onto a small patio, the other double, each with it’s own bathroom with shower. One of which is situated within an old built in wine vat!

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. An old wine press stands in the hallway, a painted wooden gate makes a perfect headboard in the bedroom, and an antique ladder now holds the bath towels.

Outside is a secluded patio furnished for eating al fresco, but you can also enjoy other areas in the grounds for an evening aperativo, 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.
