Beautifully renovated Tower

  • 4 of 5

The Tower is so much bigger than we expected and the first floor is much wider than the tower. It seemed to go on for every when we were first shown around.

It is such an unusual and amazing property. We only stayed 4 nights but we would stay again for longer. The view from the bedroom at the top is lovely. The Tower is decorated beautifully too with some very dramatic statement pieces and lovely stone statues.

If you have a car there is not designated parking but the public car park had spaces and seemed very secure. It is also very close to the Tower.

The pool is park of a hotel around the corner from the tower and a bit of a steep walk up a hill, but once there it is lovely and the view is great.

If you go to the pool, Book the sunloungers and umbrellas in advance ( which Luca offers included in the price for the apartment )as they get taken quickly and there is no other shade available. We didn't manage to get there in time on either day and it was quite frustrating, I think you would have to do this at the pool the day before.

We all really liked Figline. The main square was lovely to sit and eat in during the evenings. Such a relaxed atmosphere and a very busy social meeting point.

Luca was very helpful and replied to emails and texts straight away.

Magnifique

  • 5 of 5

Une très belle tour d'époque purement dans l'architecture Toscane, très très bien décorée, un mobilier très bien agencé et nous ramenant dans le passé, ou chaque objet en soi est un plaisir pour les yeux (en dehors des fleurs du lustre du salon mais seulement pour nous (les goûts et les couleurs)). Les photos ne mentent pas. Sur quatre étages la tour dispose d'une mezzanine avec un lit double très confortable au premier étage ainsi qu'une salle de bain juste à côté du salon, et une chambre matrimoniale au quatrième étage avec sa salle de bain au troisième et sa magnifique baignoire. Une cuisine tout équipée. Les draps de lits et les serviettes de bain sont compris. Spacieuse idéale pour un couple avec ou sans enfants, ou même deux couples.Lucas est extrêmement aimable et serviable avec une très bonne communication, il vous conseillera sur toutes les activités à faire (lieux à visiter, Restaurants , Loisirs), et reste à votre disposition en cas de besoin, bref un excellent accueil.

Figline Valdarno est ville moderne comparée aux grande villes Toscane mais très bien située dans le triangle Florence (30 km), Sienne (70 km), San Giminiano (70 km ) donc idéale pour toutes personnes visitant la Toscane en voiture.

Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de cette tour, de Lucas, nous la conseillons vivement, et y reviendrons sûrement

Demeures de charme et de caractère

  • 4 of 5

Demeure absolument somptueuse par sa décoration mais déception car nous avons cru que la piscine etait attenante à la demeure ce qui n'est pas le cas .

maison qui se trouve en ville alors que nous croyons être un peu dans la verdure si l'on se réfère aux photos fournies.

logement dans une vielle tour

  • 5 of 5

Ce voyage était un rêve. Nous étions mon épouse et nos trois enfants dans ce lieu magnifique, encore plus beau et plus grand que sur photo. Superbement situé pour les visites et dans une petite ville agréable. C'est un 10/10.Si vous avez envie d'être au calme mais, à deux minute d'un centre ville. De découvrir la Toscane, Florence,le Chianti, n'hésitez pas et rendez vous dans ce lieu d'un dépaysement total dès votre entrée. De plus vous y serez reçu par Lucas qui est d'une grande amabilité ainsi que sa maman. N'hésitez pas à aller sur son site pour découvrir toutes ces locations c'est du top.

Un'ottima soluzione

  • 5 of 5

Pensavamo di andare a Firenze, ma il fascino di questa sistemazione poco fuori ci ha conquistati. Casa veramente notevole per gli amanti delle case d'epoca. Pavimenti in cotto. Soffitti con tavelle di cotto e travi in legno. Casa su più livelli molto suggestiva, anche negli arredi. Bagni curati e di impatto, assolutamente all'altezza di tutto il resto. Atmosfera e romanticismo assicurati. Camera matrimoniale ben indipendente dal resto della casa. Wi-fi. 4 tv. Ampi spazi da vivere comodamente anche con i figli al seguito. Firenze è comodamente raggiungibile con il treno. Con quello diretto in soli 25 minuti si è in centro a Firenze. Sistemazione comoda per raggiungere anche altre città in macchina. Noi avevamo solo il weekend e abbiamo optato per Siena. Ma anche Arezzo, ad esempio, si raggiunge in poco tempo. Le colline del Chianti vicine sono uno spettacolo. Unici due nei del tutto trascurabili per noi: essendo una torre ovviamente gli scalini non mancano e i due divani d'antiquariato in soggiorno non sono il massimo della comodità. Gli scalini però sono il minimo per cercare di smaltire le ottime abbuffate che la toscana merita e la tv si può guardare anche comdamente in camera o nella sala relax. Veramente soluzione consigliatissima.
