Our home

Nice apartment (60 sq m) placed on the ground floor of our detached house. It is located on a green hilltop near the village of Carmignano, countryside, only 20 km far from Florence, in panoramic position. From the house you can admire a great view over Florence valley. The apartment has an independent entry, common parking area outside our property and private garden (200 sq).

The apartment is made up of one large bedroom with a double bed, one living room with a cooking area (there is a gas stove, a gas oven, a refrigerator with a little deep freezer, a washing machine) and a double bed sofa, one bathroom with box shower, one store-room.
The living-room open to a garden planted with Mediterranean species and equipped with table and chairs for dining in open air and with deck-chairs to lie in the sun.
We exchange this apartment from half October to end of March. We let it from April to half October and so during this period we can exchange the apartment on the first floor where we live.
We also own and exchange another apartment at the seaside in Tuscany near Follonica, Punta Ala and Castiglione della Pescaia. It is placed in Gavorrano, a medieval hamlet 10 km far from the sea. We let it from June to August so we can exchange it out from that period. Details and pictures of the last 2 apartments will be send on request.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The surroundings are really quiet and charming. The landscape is typically Tuscan with olive-trees, cypresses and vineyards. It’s a strategic position to reach important towns such as Florence, Lucca (50 km), Siena (60 km), Pisa (50 km), Vinci (15 km), Montecatini (30 km).
The place is rich of culture and history, particularly suitable for people in search of tranquillity, loving good cuisine and good wine.
The area has an archeological, historical and artistic importance for the presence of two famous Medician Villas (villa “Ambra” at Poggio a Caiano e villa “La Ferdinanda” at Artimino) and of two Etruscan tombs (“Boschetti” e “Montefortini”) at Comeana. In the Carmignano church of S. Michele is placed a beautiful picture “Visitazione” made by the famous artist Pontormo (1494-1556). Vinci, the famous Leonardo native village, is only 15 km far from here.
Moreover Carmignano is one the most famous Tuscan area for the DOCG wine production. It is an ideal place for tasting excellent wine and eating good Tuscan food.
Nearby the house you can play tennis, golf, and horse-riding or you can walk on trekking routes on Montalbano.
There are a lot of good restaurants in our area and you can find many shops at Carmignano (2 km) and supermarkets at Poggio a Caiano(7 km).
Car is absolutely necessary although we are served by local buses (100 m. far from our house and in Carmignano 2 km far from our house). At Carmignano there is a bus service direct to Florence, too.
