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.

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.

The apartment was very well equipped with all the mod cons including aircon, dishwasher, washing machine, wifi, etc. but all wrapped in a perfectly restored stone building. The family who own the property were very kind and accommodating and happy to provide us with information on local restaurants and attractions. There are 3 or 4 restaurants within 5 minutes drive (we would highly recommend Poggio il Masseto), and a main town Scandicci within 10 minutes drive with supermarkets and major transport links including a tram into the centre of Florence - removes all the hassle of parking in the city. Around the property are various walking routes into protected woodland and hills which were very pleasant and an opportunity to find local wildlife including deer and potentially more exotic beasts. In summary would highly recommend this accommodation for a quiet out of town retreat with easy connections to local tourist hot-spots including Florence (15 mins), Pisa (1 hour), Volterra (1.5 hours) and much more.

A few glitches - coffee machine did not work, no TV reliably in English with a range of channels (even just all the BBC offerings would be great for English speakers) and dish washer a bit hit and miss. However- for two weeks it is nice to adapt to outwith your total 'comfort zone'
