During the winter, the house is heated.Both the International Autodrome of Mugello and the 'Poggio dei Medici' golf course are only a few kilometres away.Florence (35 km) can be reached in 40 minutes by car, train or regional bus service.Vicchio, the birthplace of Giotto and Beato Angelico, is only 5 km far from the house.

A wonderful Tuscan escape with lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

The house is located about 10 minutes from the main road, and gets more steep and winding the closer you get - a bit scary the first time, but you soon get used to it :) - so that by the time you reach Vecciano - it feels like you've found a hidden gem in deepest countryside :). The view over the valley is breathtaking! The house itself is charming and traditional with tiled floors, a huge fireplace and beautiful bedrooms. Outside there is plenty of space to sit and enjoy the views or else cool off in the small pool - also with a fabulous view!

A few tips - don't forget the milk - it's a bit of a hike to go back to the shops. Take anti-mosquito creams and plug-ins - there are a lot of them - early evening especially! The wifi works best outside. In Summer - open windows in morning - then close and shutter for rest of the day to keep rooms cooler (and mozzy-free) for the night.

Mario and Enrica are great hosts who are there if you need help or advice, but also give you privacy to relax and enjoy your stay. We really appreciated that Mario took the time to recommend and advise on some good places to visit in the area. We were made so welcome and felt at home in their beautiful farmhouse in the Tuscan hills. Wonderful memories and would love to return. Thank You Mario, Enrica and family for a truly wonderful stay :)

Tranquil haven.

  • 5 of 5

Perched on top of a hill overlooking beautiful rolling hills. The sound of sheep bells early in the morning.

Self contained, fireplace, great kitchen, bathroom, two spacious double rooms. Lots of little places to sit and relax around the grounds and take in the breathtaking views.

Mario and his family are wonderful warm people. Our interactions with his family were fantastic and helped add to our stay in Vecciano.

We highly recommend this property.

Zeer gastvrij, prachtige locatie!

  • 5 of 5

Het was geweldig! Zeer vriendelijke verhuurders! Onze dochter mocht zelfs een middag bij hen komen knutselen; ze vond dat geweldig!

Uitzicht is super, appartement en zwembad netjes en schoon. Wekelijks schoon linnengoed. Wij komen zeker terug!

Geweldige plek, zeer gastvrije mensen en een keurig onderkomen!

  • 5 of 5

Het plekje waar het huis staat is prachtig! Mooi vergezicht over bergen en dalen. Verhuurders zijn erg gastvrij en voorkomend.

Zwembad is goed onderhouden. Linnengoed werd 1x per week schoon aangeleverd. Appartement is schoon en de bedden zijn goed (2 keer 2persoonsbed).

Een goede prijs voor uitstekende kwaliteit!

Wij komen zeker nog een keer!

Bedankt Mario en Enrika!

Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub bei Mario und Enrica. Das Haus sieht exakt so aus wie auf den Fotos. Das Appartement war ausreichend groß für 4 Erwachsene. Handtücher und Bettwäsche waren vorhanden und wurden sogar nach einer Woche ausgetauscht. Der Pool hat einen wunderschönen Ausblick auf die Berge und konnte die gesamten zwei Wochen von uns alleine genutzt werden. Auf dem Gelände gibt es verschiedene Terrassen und Sitzmöglichkeiten. Es ist also für jeden ausreichend Platz vorhanden. Es gibt einen ganz liebenswürdigen Hund, der sehr gut erzogen ist. Und das leckere Pizzaessen auf Einladung der Vermieter ist absolut lohnenswert und zu empfehlen. Das Haus selbst ist auf einem Berg gelegen aber gut zu finden, wenn man sich genau an die Wegbeschreibung hält.

Special thanks to Mario and Enrica, It was a great time :)

Au calme - accueil chaleureux

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte est situé en pleine en campagne, la vue du jardin y est d'ailleurs magnifique.

La décoration est assez simple, le gîte est propre et bien équipé.

Les extérieurs sont très agréables.

Après avoir passé la journée dans les zones trop touristiques, nous appréciions de profiter du calme du gîte.

Quant aux hôtes, Mario et Enrica sont très sympathiques et accueillants. Sans être trop présents, ils restent disponibles pour nous donner des conseils, partager des figues du jardin, etc.

Nous avons aussi passé une très bonne soirée en leur compagnie autour des pizzas faites maison.
