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.

I am not sure what I can add that has not already been said in the previous reviews. The location, house, and setting are amazing, and Kate was there to answer my emails and questions months in advance of our arrival (she booked reservations for our anniversary dinner, and also for a dinner in Rome). For my wife and I, this was our third trip to Italy, and by far the most relaxing. For three others in the group it was their first trip, and it was an incredible experience for them. There is so much to see and do in the local area, but to just sit and relax at Le Convertoie and enjoy the peaceful surroundings was well appreciated by everyone. There are also several hiking trails around the property, we explored a few and more are on the list for next year’s visit. As others mentioned, Kate is a wealth of knowledge and helped us with information on where to eat, and what to see. Her and Francesco were accommodating to our group’s needs, whether it was a day trip to Florence, or the incredible day long wine tour arranged (take advantage of this if you can) they were patient, and able to accommodate individual needs in the group. The neighbors are lovely, genuine people. Marco's wine and olive oil are great, we enjoyed many a good bottle of his wine from the cellar. We bought the last eight bottles of his 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva to enjoy in Canada. We are looking forward to his Grand Selection that will be available next year, and more of his cheese. Do not forget the cooking class with Gaia and her mom, great homemade Tuscan food that was enjoyed by all (and enough pasta left over for dinner the next day). Greve is a great town, we enjoyed the bustling market on Saturday, coffee at the café, and bread from the bakery. There are a few local restaurants we did not get to, but they are on the list for next year. Thanks Kate and Francesco for all your time and effort in helping us have an incredible vacation. Cheers, and we will ration Marco's wine to enjoy over the coming months until we return next year. Tom, Valda, Matthew, Gene, and Ruthanne Nova Scotia, Canada June 8 - June 22, 2017

A comfortable lounge area with TV and Audio equipment. The apartment is located within 10 to 15 minutes walk from the river and or the centre of Florence and 40 minutes walk from the railway station from where you can get trains to other locations. Olivia and Jack were very helpful and even managed to get some tickets to the famous football come rugby come boxing match that takes place in Florence each year Recommended. Mike & Paula Hoban
