Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Pontassieve - AL SOLATIO 2+4, splendid country house with private pool near Florence

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. In the enchanted countryside of the Val di Sieve, an area of woodland and nature reserves just a few kilometres from Florence, stands delightful Al Solatio, a welcoming country house originally used as a farm shed which restoration work, done following the parameters of green building, has completely rennovated with modern and functional accessories. The cosy and hospitable atmosphere of the interior, the large flowering garden surrounding the property with its many outdoor conversation areas, the pool in a beautiful panoramic position over the hilly landscape, all make it a unique spot for families with children as well as a romantic getaway in a very quiet and private place. The property is five minutes from the little town of Rufina and is a great base for exploring an extraordinary region where all the good and beauty of Tuscany come together to form a perfect union of nature, art and culinary excellences. The area of Chianti Rufina provides a unique opportunity for exploring a variety of unspoiled natural scenery and for making excursions along the trail of history. As soon as you come out from the entrance gate to the property, fascinating paths wind along the Wine Route of Chianti Rufina and Pomino leading you to a landscape dotted with towers, medieval churches and castles, as well as to numerous farm estates that continue to nurture the most valuable product offered by this land, a precious nectar of international renown. With the complicity of the beautiful scenic roads, bordered by rows of vines and dotted with towering cypress trees, inviting you to enjoy the beautiful scenery in a succession of ups and downs, you can get to the unmissable cities of art in Tuscany, but also to picturesque villages such as San Gimignano, Greve, Radda in Chianti and many others.


The house consists of a single floor. The main door leads directly into the living area, an open-plan space with lounge and fireplace (and double sofa bed), dining area and modern kitchen. On the kitchen side a French window leads out to the patio with the outdoor dining area. A double bedroom (with direct access to the garden), bathroom with shower and laundry room complete the floor. A short paved pathway leads to the annex, located next to the pool and about 20m from the house, composed of a bathroom with shower and a double sofa bed.


The property extends over a hilly terrain of about 4000 sq m, completely enclosed by chain-link fence and hedges to ensure maximum privacy for the guests. The park around the house is covered in grass with typical olive trees, while in the well-kept garden are fruit trees and many kinds of colourful flowers, such as camellias, geraniums, hydrangeas, hibiscus as well as rose and lavender bushes that border the paved pathways. In this inviting outdoors, various areas have been set up so that guests can spend time in the open air. The pergola, in front of the entrance, has a conversation area with sofa and armchairs whilst, on the kitchen side, the patio has been set up for outdoor dining, with table, chairs, a built-in barbecue and a very convenient work surface with sink embellished by beautiful coloured majolica. In the area outside the annex, next to the portico, is a brick structure with an additional barbecue and wood oven, ideal for poolside meals. The property includes a parking area, just past the entrance gate, on the paved area in front of the house.

Swimming Pool

The pool is open all year as it can be heated in the winter season and a telescopic cover allows to keep the temperature up to 26/28 degrees. The sun-drenched pool is set in a private part of the park, on terracing at a higher level in respect to the house which is about 25m away and is reached along a paved path across the garden. The rectangular pool is lined with fiberglass, has large internal steps and measures 4 x 8m with a depth varying from 1.20 m to 1.90 m. It is purified with chlorine and there is an outdoor shower with hot and cold water. The surrounding area, paved in stone along the perimeter of the pool and adorned with rich vegetation, is bordered all around by a screen of hedges, which do not impede the beautiful view over the hilly landscape of the Val di Sieve and neighboring villages, and has been set up as a sunbathing area. Sunbeds, deckchairs, a sofa bed with canopy and a table with stools make it perfect for all hours of the day and night, as the swimming pool has internal lights and there is lighting in the surrounding area. Completing the area is the convenient annex, with kitchenette and bathroom with shower.

AL SOLATIO 2+4, splendid country house with private pool near Florence
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Lovely peaceful villa with great outside space

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa with bigger gardens than you can see from the pictures. Everything was very clean and well maintained. A few items in our opinion were missing - bbq tools, small sharp knife, large chopping board, waste bin in bathroom and at pool house. Close to a small town with a few good restaurants and a supermarket. Very quiet and peaceful location but only 30min by train from Florence. I think the cost of electricity should be included in the rental price. We were almost €50 for the week and only had the AC on in the bedroom for a few hours per night. The security deposit of €600 in cash is large and you are then left with this at the end of the holiday and will lose out paying into your account once home. It would be better if it could be held on your credit card.
