Really lovely rustic Tuscan house

5 of 5
We have stayed at Fontirosa three times now, and we would go again. Our 3- and 6-year-old boys loved running wild in the olive grove below​ the house, and we all enjoyed the feeling of space and simplicity. We love the understated rustic elegance of the house and its furniture. Trips into Florence are easy on the train from nearby San Piero a Sieve, and it was great to escape back to rural tranquility after enjoying the bustle and grandeur of the city. There is one other house adjacent, but the two properties don't overlook each other at all, so you do feel like the space is your own. On a previous trip we had the sheer indulgence of fresh figs from the tree in front. This time our favourite memories include breakfast on the picnic table overlooking the valley, and relaxing in the hammocks overlooking the hills. Tina and John were very helpful and thoughtful in making our stay easy.
