About marzia bendini

My name is Marzia.My husband and I have two sons and two young grandsons.In Winter we live in Florence,near the historic center,but when the good weather arrives,we go to live in my husband's country house,where we spend time working in our kitchen garden,gardening,enjoing the cool of the nights.

marzia bendini purchased this chateau / country house in 1870

Why marzia bendini chose Vaiano

The house,where my husband was born,belongs to his family since 1870.It is a large house,charming for me,which we love very much,where we meet often with our sons and their families.

Nearby there are five small houses,as a small"borgo",and next to our house we have a farm house which we rent in Summer.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We restored this farmhouse without altering it ; we recovered old

furniture,lamps,carpets,pictures,objects from our cellar.

To offer hospitality to many families over the years and to see them happy with their holiday was very nice for us.

The best compliment we received by a guest from France was:"We felt here as we were at our home"

A charming, beautiful, peaceful corner of the world

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this quaint, rustic farmhouse.  It looked like it was from medieval times and had so much charm and character.  It was spotlessly clean and filled with antiques.  It had a peaceful setting with beautiful views of the Tuscan mountains.  It the morning you would hear a rooster crowing and beautiful songbirds.  It had everything you would need to make your stay comfortable and  a wonderfully stocked kitchen of every gadget you would need to cook and serve meals.  It felt like a home away from home.

The owners were fantastic!  The were so friendly and kind, and really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, and that any need we might have would be met.  They were so sweet and even gave us a gift of the local cookies and wine from the region, and vegetables from their garden.  

You could take the train from the town easily, to go to nearby Florence.  My husband loves to drive so we took a lot of day trips in our car while we were there and drove to Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terra, and Sienna.  

If you want to feel like you stepped back in time, to a charming, beautiful, peaceful world, this is the place for you.

Vaiano, Prato, Italy

  • 5 of 5

This was a gem of a place to stay. We had three beautiful bedrooms, a quaint kitchen, and a lovely living room-dining room. Our hosts were such wonderful people who gave us much support, information and lots of privacy. We would come back in a heartbeat.

We came as strangers and left as friends...

Quiet and picturesque country villa.

Our family of 6 absolutely adored our time here. The farmhouse was beautiful and spacious and such a comfortable place to relax. We could walk to the town or take a quick train ride to Florence. Our hosts were just lovely and extremely helpful. Thank you for a wonderful week!

Agréable séjour dans une vieille ferme toscane

  • 5 of 5

Logement très agréable, spacieux , propre et au calme sur les hauteurs de Vaiano. Très belle vue sur les collines environnantes. Accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires, ils ont été aux petits soins pour nous, discrets mais toujours disponibles pour rendre notre séjour agréable. Excellent point de départ pour visiter Florence, Vinci et autres villes des environs.

Ein schönes Haus in den Bergen der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt ca 300 m vom Ortskern entfernt an einem Berg.

Es ist ein altes Bauerhaus, sehr schön eingerichtet und mit einem schönen Blick ins Tal. Die Besitzer waren sehr freundlich und die Verständigung hat auch gut geklappt.

Zu Fuß sind der Bäcker und kleine Geschäfte gut zu erreichen. Die Restaurants hatten leider fast alle geschlossen, da in Italien Ferienzeit war. Nach Florenz oder andere Orte gelangt man sehr gut mit dem Zug. Wir hatten ein Auto gemietet, so konnten wir über Land Fahren und einfacher im nahe gelegenen Supermarkt einkaufen.
