CHARMING COTTAGE NESTLED IN THE HEART OF VAL DI CHIANA

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Castiglion Fiorentino

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This charming cottage is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Val di Chiana, a few minutes’ drive from the picturesque hilltop town of Castiglion Fiorentino and 15 minutes from Cortona. Here you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the Tuscan countryside and all the benefits of a lively historical town not far away.

“La Tabaccaia” was originally built in the early 20th century and used to dry tabacco leaves grown on nearby farms. The building has recently been restored with much care, preserving its authenticity and charm while fusing it with the comforts of modern times. On the same property is the main “farmhouse” where the discreet and helpful owners reside. Anna and her parents Fausto and Flavia can help you get settled in, plan activites, and answer questions about the area. (We speak and understand English!)

The 5000 m2 fenced property includes olive trees, oak trees, spacious lawns and a large swimming pool, open from May to September, with a delightful view of nearby Castiglion Fiorentino.

The pool is surrounded by gardens filled with lavender and rosemary. There, you will find comfortable lounge chairs for your relaxing pleasure and an outdoor shower. Pool towels are included in the rental rate.

The house consists of two floors which can comfortably accommodate 4+1 adults.

Ground Floor

1 open living area – including kitchen/dining, sofa bed and satellite TV

1 full, smaller bathroom with a sink, shower, and toilet

1 bedroom with twin/single beds

Second Floor

1 master bedroom with dressing area

1 full bathroom with a sink, shower, toilet

Bedding, towels, electricity, wifi are included in the rental rate. Heating is not included.

Additional amenities for our guests include complimentary Internet (Wi-Fi). Our guests can enjoy the large yard for relaxing, playing with their children, and dining at the outdoor table under a gazebo. The views of Castiglion Fiorentino and the surrounding countryside are always with you at this hilltop retreat. There is also a charcoal barbeque on site for guest use.

Three touring bicycles are available to guests who might enjoy a slower paced, albeit challenging, exploration of the nearby country side.

Guests may use the laundry area on the ground floor of the owners’ house, which includes a washing machine. Clothes may be hung on a rack to dry.

The owners live in the main house on the property and are available should you require assistance. We are happy to give you recommendations and help make reservations for local dining. We can also give you advice on what to do or see in the area.

La Tabaccaia is located in southern Tuscany, with easy access to interesting destinations. By car, we are 2.5 hours north of Rome, just over an hour south of Florence, 45 minutes east of Siena, and 40 minutes from Montepulciano, Perugia and numerous other beautiful Tuscan towns. The property is just a few minutes from the Castiglion Fiorentino train station on the Rome – Florence train line.

LOVELY LOCATION AND VIEW!!

  • 5 out of 5
My sister and I stayed in this very comfortable and historic vacation home during the last week of March 2014. Flavia, Fausto and Anna (their daughter) are wonderful hosts, extremely helpful (we had a flat tire) and accommodating!
The house itself boast of heated floors (ground level only), a spacious living area, very comfortable bedroom areas, well equipped kitchen, very nice bathrooms. My sister and I were on a rather extended vacation and decided before we ever made plans that we would NOT share a bedroom (or a bathroom, if we could help it). We knew we were going to be with each other for many days on end, and we figured that we'd like some "alone" time along the way. Most of our accommodations were hotel varieties and met our standards/needs... but this charming stop along the way was hard to leave! AND, we also had access to the family washing machine (Flavia gave us a key to use whenever we needed it). The location was ideal, giving us easy access to Cortona, Arezzo and many other villages. The owners made recommendations for restaurants that were spot on!!! Some of the best meals we had during our 5 country journey were right around the corner!

CHARMING PLACE, WONDERFUL HOSTS

  • 5 out of 5
La Tabaccia is situated in beautiful countryside just outside the old hilltop town of Castiglion Fiorentino with its fascinating Tuscan architecture, restaurants and shops - and friendly inhabitants. Florence is within easy access by train and the cottage is well-situated for sightseeing trips around Tuscany and adjoining areas. The accommodation is attractive and comfortable with lovely views from the kitchen, upstairs bedroom and the garden. Flavia, Fausto and Anna couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful in every way, and made our stay a delightful one. It was ideal for 2 couples and we would be happy to stay there again.

PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
The location of this property is perfect. It is close enough to the town for shops restaurants etc, but just rural enough that it feels to be in the middle of the countryside. The swimming pool is excellent for cooling down during the hot Tuscan summers. The view from the kitchen and from the patio area looks across the valley at the town which is impressive both during the day and at night. Flavia, Fausto and Anna were the perfect hosts being available to answer any questions and to give advice on the best places to visit, eat etc.

BEAUTIFUL VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
Accomodations were as good or better than advertised! We enjoyed sitting under the gazebo and watching the valley below with our wine & snacks. Flavia & Fausto were very friendly and helpful, printing out train schedules to Firenze, and getting us directions to our next locale. Also helped immensely in retirving a lost article from a prevbious stay. We enjoyed our stay very much. Only drawback was that business kept Fausto busy most of our visit and we saw little of him.
