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.

Travel to Scandicci, Italy

La Tinaia is a perfect spot to visit all the highlights of Tuscany, or simply stay on the property and read a book, and it is always a joy to meet Tina & Franco again and enjoy their hospitality and positive attitude. La Tinaia is located on a quite spot, yet it's only 20min from Florence, 10min to the supermarket in Scandicci and the restaurant Fiore (I can recommend the primo 'Pappardelle di Papero' and secondo 'Spezzatino di Cinghiale') is just a 50 meter walk. In the weekend we were invited to join a La Tinaia dinner with all the guests, which was plentiful & superb, like a typical Italian family feast. Antipasti, 2x primi, secondo, torta, vino and grappa, it was all there and all home-made. Chef Franco also shared some new recipes with us, which we will definitely try back home.

Fácil aparcamiento gratis en la zona, y acceso al centro de Florencia en tranvía en unos 15 minutos. Alessandro fue muy amable y dispuesto para ayudar en todo lo necesario. Lo recomiendo. Nada. Todo fue positivo.

The farmhouse was idyllic, the swimming pool amazing and even better than the photographs on the site. Everything was spotless, pool was cleaned every night and the views over the hills were lovely. The farmhouse had lots of outside space to use for eating and we spent a most relaxing holiday there. The flat was cool because of the high ceiling in the kitchen so we never used the air con and the shutters and netting on the windows were a bonus. On arrival we had fresh fruit, milk, water, bread and coffee supplied for us which was a really nice touch. We relied on public transport and the owners ensured we knew where to get the bus and the timetables. So thoughtful. They also collected us from Scandicci when we got a bit lost which was very sweet of them.
