Our home

A furnished villa surrounded by 2 acres of gardens amongst olive groves in the lovely hillside of Pian dei Giullari, the most exclusive part of Florence at only 3.5 km from the Ponte Vecchio on the south edge of Florence and with views on the Chianti. It accommodates 4 to 6 guests.

GROUND FLOOR:
A private glass door entrance with a front terrace enters a comfortable living & dining room with original terracotta floors. There is a sofa and a fireplace in the living room. The dining room enters the kitchen, which gives onto a private patio with sitting area. The picturesque bathroom with a sit bath contains a washing machine.

FIRST FLOOR:
The master bedroom is located on the first floor with adjoining WC and shower shared with a single bedroom facing the church of San Michele a Monteripaldi and the far valley of Vallombrosa. This room contains a single bed and a pull out bed and can therefore be converted into a twin bedroom.

SECOND FLOOR:
On the second floor there is a hallway room giving into a third bedroom with double bed. The hallway room can also be used as a single bedroom with its own terrace from which breathtaking views on the Chianti can be enjoyed. The third bedroom is built into the attic and is one of the six rooms in the apartment with stunning views on the Chianti.

Who we are

  1. As I've come to live and work in Perth since 2011 as a Professional Engineer, I would ideally exchange my house with couples or families who are planning on spending some time in Tuscany, preferably medium to long-term from 2 to 12 months or over.

    Alex.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The Neighborhood of Pian De'Giullari, or more commonly known as Arcetri, is in the City of Florence, near the southern border where the region of Chianti begins. These are the hills closest to the city centre where Galileo Galilei was exiled and now a marble bust commemorates him. As it is a hilly area, a vehicle would be useful for daily commuting into the close-by city centre of Florence, preferably scooters to avoid traffic and parking problems in the city. Only 15 minutes away from the city gates, the neighbourhood is rural, quiet and surrounded with nature.
