Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Florence Area - ISTRICI DI S.GIOVANNI

2 independent country houses : sleep 4 + sleeps 8

The property is surrounded by cypress and oak woods, olive and vineyards, dominating a little lonely valley. It is located in one of the most wooded and well preserved part of Chianti Classico area, between S.Donato in Poggio and Castellina in Chianti. It is easy to see roe-deers, even during the day, istrici (a particular kind of porcupine introduced by the Romans, emblem of one 'contrada' of Siena's palio ) and wild boars during the night.

We rent two of our houses, a small villa and a bigger country house, totally independent and separated (on two different levels of the hill) from each other. Both houses, surrounded by green, are fully restored and equipped. One (unit 1019994) can give accommodation to 2/4 people and the other (unit 1228613) up to 8 people. The photos show both the units ; please pay attention to the descriptions.

Swimming pool 83 square metres wide shared with us open from the beginning of May to the beginning of October.

Minimum stay 3 days, discounts from the second week and for smaller groups in the largest house (in low season). Please email me for price.

N.B.: please check the last paragraph (bottom of rates page) for charges (utilities and stay tax) and discounts.

Mooie rustige plek in Toscane.

  • 5 of 5

Wat een ideale plek om Toscane te ontdekken! Het rode huis is niet groot, maar voor twee personen (eventueel drie) prima uitgerust. Gezellig ingericht en voor ons ontbrak er niets. Alle bezienswaardigheden zijn goed te bereiken. Het was fijn om na terugkomst van een dag vol met indrukken, te genieten van de rust, het landschap en het zwembad.

Het enige wat we een beetje misten in deze prachtige omgeving, waren de wandelmogelijkheden. Zelfs met gedetailleerde wandelkaart, brachten we onze wandeling niet altijd makkelijk tot een goed einde.

Peaceful, picturesque, perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Red House for a week at the end of March/beginning of April and had a wonderful time. The house suited us really well (2 adults and 2 children), it had everything we needed (including wine from the vineyard and olive oil from Stefano's vineyard and olive trees....both tasting amazing!). It was a great base and perfectly located to easily reach some amazing parts of Tuscany - we visited Florence, Siena, Pisa, Castellina in Chianti...and more...and spent a day just exploring the area around the house, which was really nice too. The kids loved it, and especially loved the cats! Thank you for a wonderful holiday that felt like a lot longer than a week!

bellissima casa nel bosco

  • 5 of 5

Io e mio marito abbiamo soggiornato in questa graziosa casa in inverno, il contesto fra vigneti e bosco è davvero incantevole.. la casa è circondata da alberi e sentieri, la vista da ogni finestra è magica . La posizione è privilegiata, il posto ideale per ritrovare quiete ma allo stesso tempo facile da raggiungere, vicino a tutte le comodità e a pochissima distanza dalle città di Firenze e Siena. Stefano, il proprietario, è molto accogliente e disponibile. Un posto in cui torneremo sicuramente.

Wunderbare Herbsttage

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne und erholsame Zeit im "Roten Haus". Das Haus ist klein, aber fein und gemütlich. Es fehlte uns an nichts. Kultur "vor der Tür", Ruhe im Liegestuhl und Wandern im Wald. Wir kommen gerne einmal wieder!
