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.

Places to visit on holiday in Pontassieve, Italy

The famous city of Florence is just 18km away, and can be reached in under half an hour by car or by public transport. Pontassieve has a railway station, but opting to hire a car will provide you with far more flexibility when it comes to exploring the Val di Sieve region, with Dicomano (18km) another destination more than worthy of your attentions. The most famous site in Dicomano is the 12th century Pieve di Santa Maria.

Weather in Pontassieve, Italy

Although Tuscany is often regarded as a spring and summer destination, a holiday in Pontassieve can be enjoyed at any time of the year. Temperatures remain mild even in the depths of winter, and you can still expect clear skies and daily sunshine during this season.

Flights to Pontassieve, Italy

Peretola Airport (FLR), which is located close to the city of Florence, is the closest airport to Pontassieve, being just 19km away. Flights to this airport from the UK are limited, however, so you may need to also look at flying to Pisa Galileo Galilei Airport (PSA), 129km away.

Most beautiful vacation property ever!

5 of 5
Our stay at Le Convertoie was absolutely the highlight of our month in Italy. The photos shown in the listing are very accurate but do not come close to being there in person and having the history and the beauty of the house and its' surroundings wash over you. The property was very well maintained, and the personal touches of the owner's wonderful antiques and books make it easy to imagine that you are living there in your own very well-loved home. My personal favorite day was a day I stayed behind alone while the others went into Florence. Working in the wonderful Tuscan kitchen and looking through the door across the gorgeous landscape was a dream come true. And strolling through the dining room doors onto the terrace and just sitting and watching the birds soar in the quiet of the landscape was bliss as I had never imagined. Another in our group, a professional musician, was transported every time he sat down at the grand piano in the wonderful acoustically live music room. His joy of spending any spare moment at the instrument was our joy in listening. Kate kindly helped us with printing tickets for the Duomo and even met us with them in Florence near the Duomo. They were both kind and helpful in walking us through the house when we arrived and pointing out how various features work. We all enjoyed drives through the countryside and visiting several of the other Chianti villages and the drives up to the tiny villages of Lamole, Volpaia and Vertine. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone I know and I would go back again in a heartbeat, given the opportunity. Thank you so much, Kate and Francesco, for giving us memories like we've never made before.
