Location irréprochable

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement occupe les salons d'un ancien manoir, et dispose d'un magnifique jardin avec vue sur l'ensemble de Florence. Les prestations sont très soignées et l'ensemble est aménagé avec beaucoup de goût. Les pièces sont très spacieuses et très propres. La literie est d'excellente qualité. La cuisine est très complète. Un potager a été mis à notre disposition et nous avons dégusté de très bonnes salades! Le propriétaire est un homme charmant, il parle français et a pris le temps de bavarder et donner des conseils. C'est un artiste, dont les oeuvres ornent appartement et jardin. Le centre de Florence est très simple d'accès, en 10 minutes en voiture.

Nous y sommes restés 5 jours et n'avons pas pu tout voir. Envisageons d'y retourner, au même endroit!

Maison d'artiste & vue exceptionnelle sur Florence

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison d'artiste, historique et une vue extraordinaire sur Florence. Du balcon ou du jardin, la vue nous a émerveillé du matin au soir, le ciel et l'ambiance changeant toute la journée.

Riccardo et Alessandra ont été vraiment très accueillants, très prévenants mais aussi très discrets ce que nous avons appréciés (ils n'habitent pas sur le site). L'intérieur de la maison est atypique, des œuvres d'art partout et une ambiance si particulière : une impression très forte d'avoir beaucoup de chance de pouvoir profiter d'un tel lieu. Le rapport Qualité / Prix est incomparable.

De plus, à seulement 7Km de l'entrée de Florence, la situation est idéale pour profiter des beautés de la ville tous les jours sans passer sa journée en voiture!

Nous étions 6 amis et avons été tous séduits! Nous vous conseillons vivement cette location!

Un merveilleux balcon sur Florence

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce très bel appartement d'artistes, remplis d’œuvres d'art avec une vue magnifique sur Florence.

Riccardo et Alessandra nous ont réservé un excellent accueil, ils sont d'une extrême gentillesse et leurs conseils ont été précieux pour notre séjour.

Nous recommandons cette location pour tous ceux qui veulent résider au calme à proximité immédiate de Florence dans un appartement extraordinaire.

En dehors de la visite de Florence, de ses monuments et musées exceptionnels vous pourrez visiter le Chianti qui offre de très beaux paysages.

Nous avons apprécié la pizzeria "Il Cigno" sur les rives de l'Arno à Florence, "Mac Dario" à Panzano in Chianti.

Nous n'avons pas eu le temps de tester la trattoria "Gargotta" à deux pas de l'appartement (voir Tripadvisor).

Un séjour formidable et inoubliable !!!

Un site de rêve surplombant Florence...

  • 5 of 5

LE rêve.

La description et les photos de cette maison laissaient présager du meilleur, mais la réalité a été bien au-delà. Nos 2 semaines sur place ont été formidables, entre vie de château et vis de bohème, dans un cadre magnifique alliant respect d'un cadre exceptionnel chargé d'histoire, grands espaces à vivre, et audace artistique omniprésente. Et que dire de la vue exceptionnelle sur Florence que nous offre le jardin !!

En fait, trouver les mots exacts pour décrire cette maison amène assez vite à utiliser des mots qui semblent outrés, et qui risquent de faire perdre toute crédibilité à ce commentaire... Et pourtant !

Cerise sur le gâteau, le propriétaire et sa femme sont des gens extrêmement prévenants et sympathiques, avec qui nous avons passé un très très bon moment.

Visiter Florence et la Toscane sont l'occasion de vacances merveilleuses... Alors pour ne pas rompre le charme au moment de retourner dans vos quartiers, offrez vous LE pied-à-terre idéal (d'autant qu'au vu du cadre, le prix demandé est étonnamment peu élevé...).

weergaloos vakantiehuis

  • 5 of 5

Een magnifieke eeuwenoude villa in de heuvels met de allure van een paleisje. De foto's doen amper recht aan de top-kwaliteit van het gebodene. De uiterst vriendelijke eigenaar is een Italiaanse beeldhouwer die zijn huis vol met eigen kunst heeft staan. Ook de dagelijks besproeide en dus uiterst groene tuin telt vele kunstwerken. En dat alles met een fantastisch zicht op Florence, vijf kilometer verderop. Een klein zwembadje (koud water!) maakt het compleet. Erg rustige omgeving. Er zijn bovenburen maar daar merk je totaal niets van.

Het huis is comfortabel, smaakvol en luxe ingericht, met internet. De keuken is volledig ingericht. Met gemak kun je er met 6-8 personen in verblijven. In de tussenverdiepingen staan veel extra bedden. Het is 5 minuten rijden naar Florence (parkeer in de COOP halverwege en neem dan de bus). Volgend jaar willen we er zo weer heen. Nog nooit zo'n mooi vakantiehuis meegemaakt. Je waant je haast een filmster. En dat voor een alleszins redelijke prijs.

We are situated on the southern hills with breathtaking views of Florence, 3kms from its outskirts and 7kms from the Ponte Vecchio. We are in the vicinity of the Chianti wine and oil area. In the hamlet of Rimaggio there is a classical music festival all year,there are also the possibilities to horse ride and to play golf ,and in the village of Bagno A Ripoli there are all the amenities.

Golf: Beautiful golf club 'UGOLINO', 7Km from the home, in the road SR222

Ski: Getting there: take the A1 “Autostrada del Sole” and exit at Firenze Sud, after the toll take the second exit towards Chianti and Pontassieve and at the 4th traffic lights, at Rimaggio turn right up the hill for about 1 km, after the church on the curve turn left through the large gate with the Schneiderf coat of arms.
