The Bus nr. 41 arrives in 15 minutes from the centre, departure Piazza Ferrucci. From the train station one takes the Bus D to Piazza Ferrucci, every 10 minutes.

Interested in art, travelling and my family, I like to share and have guests myself. Culture and a sophisticated lifestyle is what we all like without forgetting nature.

Claudia Pirazzi purchased this cottage in 1999

Because it´s location is so ideal. Close to the city centre and at the same time in the green nature of the Florentine Hills. We liked it because it has this second home and we like to have persons around us.

Flowers, Roses and green around in a luminous wintergarden and house. It is like a own cottage and in a few minutes you are down town Florence. The bus service is perfect and also for daytrips it is a good pole position.

Beyond Expectations

The so called "cottage" is the most wonderful, warm home any traveler could ask for. It was clean, roomy, well-equiped, well located for touring around Florence and surrounded by rose gardens. The highlight of this place is the hostess, she was so gracious, warm and friendly, bringing warm bread & jam on our 1st morning, roses for our table and making tour reservations. We did not want to leave. It is a steal at the prices charged.

A wonderful holiday home

We had a wonderful stay at this charming house. We (4 adults) had a lot of space, both inside the house as well as outside.
We have everything we needed and the family was very kind and helpful.
We'll definitely come back, if we decide to go to Florence again.

Out of Town Florence Villa

A really lovely clean and comfortable place, friendly and helpful hosts. We initially had problems finding the property using public transport but after that we had no problems. The Restuarant on the opposite side of the road was ideal for the first couple of nights until we got our bearings and then started using the local village shops. Good Bus service stopping close to the villa. I would recommend this property to anyone providing they don't mind living a few kilometres outside Florence and relying on good public transport.We all look forward to returning to this villa in the future

The owner was just great about helping us. It is close to a bus stop so you can be in down town florence in about less than 15mins.
The house looks just like the pictures and more.
It is well kept just an older house. The restaurant across the street is great so stop by if you get the time. The owner made my 40th birthday worth the trip that I will be back to stay with her again.

This cottage is situated only 4,5 km from the centre of town from where it is easy to reach in the famous Florentine Hills, the exclusive living in Florence, . It offers quietness and green around which is shared with the mainhome of the owner within the park. Also the next golf course of Ugolino Golf is only 15 minutes away. A good Pizzeria and the bus stop are in front of the own park where you have naturally your own parking place for the car. The bus brings you frequently into town and back.For rides into the wonderful Chianti area you need just five minutes to get onto the highway A1 and from there everywhere in Tuscany. Distance to the airport of Florence Peretola is about 20 minutes drive on the highway, about 40 minutes through the city. From Pisa airport it will take you about 1 hour and 20 minutes drive. All these indications are approximately as depending on the traffic and time of the day.Enjoy relaxing green after a day of culture and architecture.

Other Activities: Culture and cooking courses, walkingtours in and around Florence

Golf: Golf Club of Ugolino is the one of the most important Golf club's in Tuscany with beautiful scenery and at the same time close to Florence city centre. The lovely house is half way to each direction.

Ski: To the Abetone Skiing area it is a 2 hour drive and very beautiful.
