About the property

Wide house with 3 double bedroom and tavern - garden and terrace

You will be welcomed in a wide open space with a large dining area, a comfortable sofa and chairs, a fully equipped kitchen complete with all appliances: electric oven, induction hob, dishwasher fridge with freezer. Everything is new and of the best quality.

This surprising tuscan house, newly rifurbished and ristructured, distinguishes itself for its brightness and its furniture and decor unusually modern and elegant. Developed on 3 floors, it overspreads for about 200 Mq, over 20 Mq of panoramic terrace and a fenced garden of 150 Mq, safe for children and animals.

The large windows give light and make wider this area from which we have access to the garden. On the same floor there are 1 double bedrooms with air conditioning and a bathroom with shower.

On the first floor we find 2 double bedrooms with air conditioning and 1 bathroom to share. From one of the two rooms we have access to a pretty terrace from which one can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Castle of Poppiano and of the rolling hills, as well as the roofs of the village viewed in perspective and ending with the bell tower of the parish church. From here plunged in the silence of clear summer nights the sky full of stars is a show not to miss.

On the basement is a tavern of about 60mq where one can relax watching Tv on comfortable sofas. In this space you can forget about internet and social netwoks and enjoy your time together playing with table football, cards, have a drink or playing other board games. Here there is also the laundry room with washing mashine and sink and 1 bathroom with shower. This area also has windows and light. The house newly refurbished, can guarantee you a pleasant and relaxing stay with all the comfort of home.

About Stefania

The villa was built in 1992 by my husband's father who was born in this village and wanted to settle with his large family.

Today, the family who live and work in Florence, often comes here to escape from the city to enjoy the country side, its scents and colors of all seasons.

Stefania purchased this villa in 1992

Why Stefania chose Montespertoli

We do not use often enough this house because all our family lives in different cities and countries, Luxemburg, Florence, countryside near Florence. We do not want to sell it since it's the house that my father in law made for us all. After restructuring it we have though of sharing it with whom, like us, love this part of the world.

What makes this villa unique

The house is wide and bright. Unlike many tuscan houses furnished by the traditional tuscan style, we have furnished it in a modern style, but the warmth and light, as well as the area where it is located, make the ambience cozy and homely.

All appliances are brand new and of the best quality. comfort is guaranteed.

The garden is fenced and therefore safe for children and animals to stay outside.

The house is near all shops and services, but is quiet and tranquile because right at the doorway of the village and it's independent.

The terrace, right at the top of the house, is a place where you may sunbaith or have breakfast next to your room, enjoying the view on the hills and the Castle.

A wonderful home in beautiful Chianti.

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay at San Casciano in Val di Pesa. The house was charming with very modern touches. The kitchen is well appointed and included salt, pepper, olive oil and spices (my husband is a chef so this was a great bonus for us!). In the village there is a small grocery to buy local meats, cheeses and breads. The small garden area was perfect for morning coffee and dining al fresco.

Angela, our host, could not have been more helpful. We had a very trying travel day with numerous traffic accidents and delays making our arrival several hours later than planned. Angela made arrangements to meet us at a later time without complaint. She even stocked the refrigerator with supplies for breakfast, had fresh fruit on the counter and a bottle of wine for us which was much needed!

The location was perfect for our day trips to Sienna, Pisa, Florence and Lucca. If you are interested in food and wine Angela can give you some fantastic suggestions. She helped us book a day with a local truffle hunter which was one of our favorite experiences in Italy.

I hope to have them back one day. Stefania

Fantastic place to relax

  • 5 of 5

On many previous rentals we have been disappointed as the property did not live up to the details presented however this was not the case on this holiday, the property had everything we had hoped for and more. sometimes little things can make a difference and although they seem trivial can make a good holiday experience a great one.

Angela and Stefania were friendly and helpful, and when we encountered a small issue it was resolved straightaway. The view from the balcony should be bottled and sold as it was a great way of spending an evening enjoying the sun set over the fields.

I would highly recommend this property.

Thank you Angela and Stefania

owner fully stock the place, good value

  • 3 of 5

Owner fully stock the place with everything you need for a comfortable stay including milk, juice, coffee, tea, snacks, spices for cooking, soap, shampoo...etc. The place is a 3 floor house in a very small non-characteristic village. But it situated high enough to have good view of grape vines and distance castle. I would not call it a villa, it is a house. There are plenty spaces but spread among 3 floors, therefore rooms and living spaces are a bit small, except the basement family room which is very spacious. There were 6 of us, 3 adults and 3 teenagers, and if we are all together in the living room and dinning room area, it feels a bit crowded. kitchen equipment are new with induction hot plates, adequate supplies of pots and pans. Air conditioner works well, we needed it since it was 34C outside. Laundry is very convenient with detergent supplied. The stairs for the 3 floors is a bit narrow, it sure give you a good work out. Parking inside the gate. Very convenient location to visit neighboring sights, easy access to motor ways. There is a very good restaurant "Buzzanca" in the small village.

Negatives- electric circuit is limited, if you turn on high in more than one burner, it will not function, can be frustrating. If you turn on a few electric equipment at the same time, you will kick the breaker. Water faucets have some kind of restrictor on them and will splash all over. You will get totally wet no matter how careful you try when you wash dishes or wash your face. There is no screen for the door to terrace for the upstair bedroom, so can't really enjoy the terrace. Lots of mosquitos. There is an out door area that one can sit, but it has the neighboring cats all over the area and plenty of bugs, one can not peacefully enjoy. Only 1G data of WiFi a day, with 3 adults and 3 teenagers, we went over many times, difficult to control - may be some kind of warning when 1G has been used up.

Overall, it serve well for our purpose.

Owner's Response: Very sorry to hear that Grace and her group have been the only guests who felt the house was not the right size for them, precisely those aspects always been very much appreciated by all our guests so far. Regarding the negative aspects that Grace has listed, I was aware of some but had no time to intervene as reservation season has started very early this year, like the water faucet in the kitchen (which has just been changed) and the screen in the terrace (for which I have just provided an umbrella since I need to have no guests to install a screen). For the rest, like for example electric power, Grace has been fully advised at check in of not using too many heavy power sucking electric devices at once as it might happen a shortage of electricity, she was also showed how to reset from the main. It is obvious that one must not insist as it will happen again. Furthermore, on the use of internet Grace was promptly warned they had exceeded the limit right on the very day they did, I provided a reading sent by email as I always do when this happens. We are in the countryside and cats are always around, they are harmless, just a clap of hands and they’ve gone. Mosquitos during hot humid days are a real bug everywhwere in the country and besides having installed brand new mosquito nets in some of the windows inside, I do provide plenty of antimosquitos spray, candles and electric plugs in a cupboard near the entrance and in all rooms. Regarding the demage caused and refused to pay for I won’t go on about. Grace left the house tidy and sufficiently clean but on the whole this is the only one negative experience I have had in the latest 4 years, but this can happen.

It felt like home but in the middle of the beautiful Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

Super comfortable house for our family of four since it has 3 floors.

The kids were very happy with the bottom floor where they have their own space to chill and watch movies or play games after a long day walking in the streets of Florence

The house was well provisioned with plenty of food for the first night and breakfast so no need to look for a supermarket at the beginning

We had a great time and it really felt warm and cozy as home

Owner's Response: Federica'S family were nice people, they loved the places they went to visit and the house which was left it in perfect conditions and tidy as they found it! We hope to have them back ! We are sorry for the extra charge of the Internet since the free limit was largely exceeded but that is often the case with the youngest. We always improve our subscriptions and try to get the best deals as possible.. hopefully soon we will have broadband available.

Beautiful Villa in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The villa was so modern and clean, it had all the amenities you need for a great vacation. This place was bright and spacious and the perfect accommodations for our family of 6. The location is outside of Florence and in the middle of wine country. Angela made it very easy to reserve the house from the U.S. and she gave us very useful tips to visit Rome, Florence and the surrounding areas. It is the perfect rental for a vacation in Tuscany!

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time waking up to the beautiful views from the upstairs balcony. After sightseeing in Florence, or in the Chianti area, we ended the day the same way we started. The property offers great amenities with a very attentive property manager.

I cannot say enough about the property manager. It was a wonderful experience.

I recommend asking the property manager about the chef service at the property. The meals and the service were impeccable.

We drove the car to the train station for sightseeing in Florence.

Thanks for a great time and wonderful memories!

The villa, which can host up to 8 people, stands in front of the hill of Poppiano, in a very panoramic position looking at the florentine country side rich of vineyards, olive trees and groves, typical of the Chianti area. We are near the village of Montespertoli and the Castello di Poppiano, residence of the Guicciardini family and their Wine Cellars.

Besides offering a splendid panorama on the Chianti hills, our house is an excellent starting point to reach in a short time our famous art cities: Florence, Greve in Chianti and Siena, Pisa and Livorno.

Many are the feasts and celebrations around the region at all times of the year where you can taste our typical products like pecorino cheese, the renouned red wine of the Frescobaldi and Ricasoli, our home made sweets and pasta, visiting the most beautiful Cellars of the Chianti first amongst all, the great architectural work of the Antinori Cellars. You can stop at the renowned bakery of Montespertoli with its mill which grinds the ancient grains of our tradition.

By the little village of San Quirico, only few steps from home, you may find: a delicatessen, a butcher, a smoke shop and bar, a news-paper and stationary shop, a mini-market, a chemist, a hair saloon, a greengrocer. In front of the parish church a kinder garden for your children. Nearby is the pretty little village of La Ripa where is the Horse Center with its riding school. For horse riding you also find the Equitation Center of Scandicci, 15 Km further down on the way to Florence. From Montespertoli you can take off and discover the sweet rolling Tuscan hills with 'Cocchieri del Chianti' (Chianti's coachmen). With them you will know the fascinating history and culture of the area at the slow pace of an old-fashion horse-drawn wagon. You can visit castles, historic country homes, and rustic farmhouses. Taste the renowned local wines while visiting ancient cellars. Have lunch in a charming villa enjoying traditional Tuscan dishes. If you wish to spend a day by the sea you can do it in a daily trip.
