    Make a holiday rental home or villa in Pontassieve, Italy your home away from home

    Staying in a Pontassieve holiday villa is a good alternative to staying in Florence, as it will give you close and easy access to the famous city, but a relaxed and traditional Tuscan base to return to after a busy day of sightseeing. Pontassieve is also a worthy destination in its own right, with a bevy of historical attractions and top amenities – perfect for a self-catering vacation in the Val di Sieve.

    Things to do in Pontassieve, Italy

    The Val di Sieve is rural Tuscany at its best – roaming green landscapes, traditional attractions and unspoilt serenity. Pontassieve is a popular choice of base for those on a walking and hiking holiday, with a number of nature trails starting in and around the town.

    The centre of the town is a fine example of a lovingly preserved medieval centre, and has a number of old buildings that can be visited by the general public. The impressive Castle di San Michele is the jewel in Pontassieve's crown, whilst the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II and the Porta Filicaia can also help fill a day of sightseeing.

    Amenities are important for self-caterers, and Pontassieve delivers them in spades. Despite being fairly small in size, the town centre is home to a respectful number of shops, bars, supermarkets, cafés and restaurants, allowing you to either stock up for the week or dine out in style.

    If you wish to visit Pontassieve during a festival period, you can do far worse than book your holiday rental accommodation in May – the time of the Toscanello d'oro, which celebrates local food and wine. Expect plenty of hearty Tuscan dishes if you visit during this time.
