Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Val di Sieve, Italy your home away from home

Val di Sieve is a rural province in the Florence region of Tuscany. Running along a narrow valley of the River Sieve, and surrounded by the steep foothills of the Apennines, the Val di Sieve is a wonderfully scenic, peaceful place to take a holiday rental, especially if you would like a great walking holiday with great local wines in abundance.

Things to do on holiday to Val di Sieve, Italy

There is a very traditional feel to holidays in the Val di Sieve, with beautiful parish churches, ancient castles standing proud and huge renaissance villas adorning the countryside. The Apennine hills are a delight to walk. Walking, mountain biking and horse riding holidays in the area are absolutely fantastic, with plenty of completely unspoilt stretches of the valley allowing you to enjoy an absolutely timeless holiday. There are a number of mountain bike rental shops, riding stables and route maps available throughout the province.

The wine trails of the Val di Sieve are a great asset to the region. Taking in both the famous vineyards and some of the best viewpoints in the area, walking, cycling or driving the wine trails are fantastic ways to get to know the Val di Sieve, especially if this is your first visit to a Val di Sieve villa. The vineyards of famous wines from Londa to Rufina offer magnificent wine tasting tours, allowing you to quickly find the perfect accompaniment to the Tuscan delicacies you will be enjoying during your holiday. Many of the wines of the Val di Sieve have strong fruit flavours, with vanilla, raspberry and cherries being among the most compelling flavours.

Fully heated with Air Conditioning (if required). Starting in the bedroom-at the back/side of the flat. . There was a large wardrobe, with lots of hanging space, double bed, and radiators, and additional bedding/pillows if required. The window at the end of the bed overlooked the vineyard, but the view was hampered by the bricks... not a problem. Fully fitted bathroom, with bath, shower, sink and toilet. Then up a step into the lounge/kitchen, which has been furnished with TV, Settee, Bookcase, Fridge/freezer, Sink, Oven and Wi-fi. There is a patio outside, with a table and chairs and parasol is available. There are fresh herbs in the garden, with olive trees. A washing machine is available, along with an iron and ironing board. We could not have asked for better hosts - Jane & Giampero know the area . There is a booklet/guide to the accommodation which also recommends various restaurants....for whatever type of food you fancy. We walked round Pontassieve / Pelago which was most enjoyable. As we were on a driving holiday we had a couple of days when we went to Pisa and Florence by train. We drove to the station parked the car and then caught the train. It was fairly easy and cheap to buy tickets. (The one drawback, is that the flat is quite a way out of town, so we could not walk into town have a meal and then walk back.) The Alba was very clean and well maintained. Yes, I would go back and would gladly recommend it to a friend. ************Excellent We were late arriving so Jane emailed us a shopping list, which we sent back with our requirements. Our shopping was waiting for us when we arrived.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I cannot recommend this place more ! Firstly we had a very disastrous start to our holiday, the hire car company didn't take debit cardswhen we went to pick up the car, we were devastated as we knew we needed this car to get to the villa. So there we were me and my girlfriend at 10 o'clock at night stranded after a days travel, I rang Jane the host not expected much more than "I'm sorry to hear but ...." That didn't happen, Jane was absolutely lovely on the phone and emailed us with directions from the airport to the centre of Florence, where we would catch a train and meet her at the Pontassieve station. Bearing in mind this was very late at night I cannot overstate how Jane basically saved our holiday. After all of drama and we got to the villa it was beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. There was a helpful guide in our room with suggestions of restaurants and places to visit nearby. The wine tasting at the Castle just above the villa was a highlight of the trip, a great location and was very welcoming of a complete wine novice such as myself. To sum up the hosts are lovely, the location is brilliant, a variety of things to do close-by and remember to correctly book when getting a hire car! Tom and Lola
