Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Scandicci, Italy Your Home Away From Home

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually possible to have a get-away-from-it-all holiday with plenty of peace and quiet without having to compromise on proximity to great attractions and the hustle and bustle of a city. The small town of Scandicci, in the Tuscany region of Italy, is a fantastic example of how to get the best of both worlds. With a Scandicci holiday you can simply relax in a comfortable villa, taking in the beautiful surrounding countryside; or you can take the short journey to the wonderful city of Florence to be in amongst the masses of other visitors to the historic city. For these very reasons, a Scandicci holiday is a popular choice with a wide variety of travellers from all over the globe.

Things to Do on Holiday in Scandicci, Italy

As you would expect with the small, quiet town label, Scandicci does not have a vast range of activities on offer for visitors to indulge in. The most you can hope to get (apart from the much needed peace and quiet) is some swimming, walking and pleasantly-paced cycling. Scandicci also has several wonderful buildings such as the Villa I Collazzi and a beautiful church that dates back to the 11th century.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Scandicci, Italy

If you have had your fill of tranquillity in your Scandicci holiday rental villa but also do not fancy heading off to Florence, then a great alternative is to visit the town of San Gimignano. This beautiful hilltop town is just under an hour’s journey from Scandicci and its Medieval centre has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Unlike many other towns and cities in Italy, San Gimignano has managed to hold on to 14 of its Medieval towers which surround the town and offer some fantastic views of the green countryside below.

Weather in Scandicci, Italy

If the weather is an important factor in whether you book a Scandicci holiday rental villa or not, then you will be delighted to hear that you can expect to enjoy some wonderful weather, no matter what time of year you decide to visit. Generally, July and August are the hottest months of the year with the temperature rising to as much as 32°C. If this time of year is too hot for you, then it is best to visit during the winter months when the daytime temperature is anywhere between 9°C and 15°C. Precipitation can be expected all year round with an average annual rainfall of 22 inches.

It is a beautiful house located less then half an hour away from Florence if you are drinving, a really convenient location if you want to go to different places like we did, Pisa and Siena for example. easy access, has a parking outside and Patrizia the owner is really helpful and nice. We stayed with our family, seven of us, and was perfect. Great fireplace, bathrooms, rooms, everything clean and just very cozy. We are definitely coming back. We also went with a baby and Patrizia offered a cot and a high chair for us which was very convenient. Great service, highly recommend it.

The villa is very pretty and of a classic style, with stunning views across Florence, a terrace perfect for evening meals and a good bus service to the City. Our host, Stefano was incredibly kind and hospitable - we felt truly welcome. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to visit Tuscany, be it to experience the culture of Florence or to enjoy good food, wine, a view and a pool up in the hills - this property would be perfect for either. We were a group of 7 students and the property easily housed us. We were impressed from the time of our arrival to when we left and will hopefully return in the future. A top class villa.
