We had a wonderful stay at Andrea’s house; we were very well looked after, the hostesses were such kind and happy people! We had everything we needed, and we loved the peace and quiet of the countryside. And the sunsets over the Tuscan hills were amazing! We also loved how close we were to Siena and San Gimignano, as well as to the amenities in Castelfiorentino. Also, they supplied the baby bed and high chair which made our trip with our little one so much easier.

We highly recommend staying at this fantastic house. The hosts are truly lovely people who went out of their way to help us when we had a flat tyre. The house is very beautiful in a small working village and well equipped with great kitchen, crockery and glassware. There was lots of room with 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Great for families. We enjoyed the cosy fire place at night after exploring Tuscany. We also enjoyed the beautiful setting in rolling hills of olive groves and vineyards. Also we were very happy for with the gifts of wine and olive oil!

Andrean koti oli viihtyisä, siisti ja aivan ihastuttavalla sijainnilla. Saavuttaessa saimme todella lämpimän ja ystävällisen vastaanoton ja Andrean perhe oli valmis auttamaan aina tarvittaessa. Majoittuisimme perheeni kanssa mielellään Andrean luo tulevaisuudessakin.

Cinzia and Katia gave us such a warm welcome. The villa was just lovely – clean and well equipped and it was so nice to have a real fire every evening. The villa is set in such beautiful countryside and has lovely gardens and a pool. The added touches of local wine and a wedding gift for our daughter and her fiancée was just lovely – thank you so much for a wonderful, friendly welcome – it really was a holiday to remember.

Wir hatten das Appartement über dreieinhalb Ebenen im Oktober gebucht. Das Haus ist innen sehr schön eingerichtet, mit zwei Bädern und einem Kamin. Es gab eine ausführliche Einweisung in das Haus und eine sehr persönliche, herzliche und liebevolle Betreuung. Von daher kann ich sowohl das Haus als auch den Gastgeber nur empfehlen.

Perfecto!!! La casa esta muy bien equipada y decorada, siguiendo el estilo típico de la Toscana. Las vistas desde el jardín son maravillosas y la piscina está genial. Hemos pasado unos días formidables visitando la zona: Florencia, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano…Andrea, Cinzia y Katia nos recibieron con cariño y han hecho todo lo posible para que nos sintiéramos como en casa, incluso nos obsequiaron con vino y aceite a nuestra llegada. Recomendamos esta casa para aquellas familias que quieren visitar la Toscana o pasar unos días de relax.

Nous avons passé 2 magnifiques semaines en Toscane ! La maison est idéalement placée entre Florence, Sienne et Pise, tout en étant très au calme en haut d’une colline. Les aménagements sont impeccables et très conformes aux descriptions, la maison est bien équipée, et surtout, la piscine est magnifique avec sa vue imprenable sur la campagne. Les hôtes sont adorables, huile d’olive et vin de leur exploitation à l’arrivée, pâtisseries au départ, nettoyage de la piscine tous les jours, et d’autres petites attentions qui rendent le séjour très facile. Nous n’avons qu’une envie : y retourner !

Chaleureux accueil, maison tres bien située pour visiter la Toscane en voiture ou en train. La maison est mitoyenne avec une autre location, mais sans aucune promiscuité,ce qui nous a permis de partir avec des amis, en étant chacun chez soi et en partageant la piscine. Bref un séjour formidable

We  – a family of five with children aged 7/9/11 – stayed for two weeks in  Andreas’ house. The very warm and heartily welcome by Giulia, Andrea, Maria and Cynthia already indicated what  lay ahead of us: Airbnb at it’s best! Without exaggeration Andrea and her family can be described as some of the most heartily and pleasant hosts and we have ever met! The house and the village offered a  very relaxed hideaway from the large tourist crowds in Firenze, Siena, Volterra, San Giminiano, Pisa etc. (which are nevertheless absolutely worth a visit). The house of Andrea was exactly as described in the ad: a spacious, fully equipped, very clean three-storey/three-bedroom part of an old monastery in a cosy little village in the middle of the hillls of western Chianti area, surrounded by a very nice garden, splendid olive groves and vineyards. Some of the highlights were the terrace by the kitchen, the private garden and the outdoor barbecue area which were heavily used by us. The wine and the olive oil of Andrea are really excellent – don’t make the mistake to buy your oil and table wine in advance in the supermarket….! We explored the villages and hills of Tuscany to a large extent, using Andreas’ house as an ideally located base. Even the 1.5 hour trips to the Mediterranan Sea (near Pisa, Lucca and/or Volterra) can be combined easily with a sightseeing of these cities. To say goodbye after two very relaxed weeks was not easy -we will not hesitate to come back to Il Pino and Andrea’s house and can only recommend it to everyone who wants to spend a nice holiday in a beautiful landscape with absoluteky great hosts!!!

We received a very warm greeting on arrival by Cinzia and Katia who showed us around and also gave us some homemade olive oil and wine from their family farm. Very kind. We had a lovely holiday at this beautiful apartment/villa set amongst the Tuscan hills. It is tastefully decorated and surrounded by wonderful scenery. It is extremely clean, spacious, well-equipped and well-kept. the shared pool area is also extremely clean and well-kept, as is the garden, sun loungers and chairs. There is also table tennis, a boules pit and toys/ games for the pool. It is in an ideal location to explore Tuscany and we visited Florence, Lucca, Certaldo, Empoli as well as Castelfiorentino. We had a lovely time and would love to return another time.

We just finished the most amazing month at this beautiful house. As soon as we arrived we were just amazed at the view and the roses that seemed to be everywhere in full bloom. The house was exactly like the pictures & had a wonderful Tuscan feel. We were greeted by Katia & Cinzia and even though our Italian & their English was extremely limited we managed to understand each other with the help of translation apps. We laughed a lot when it didn’t quite say what we were intending to say. The house was thoroughly cleaned & ready for us. We were greeted with a bottle of their own wine & olive oil & fresh eggs from their farm. When we told them how much we enjoyed everything, they would stop by and present us with more of their wine & eggs. We found the beds to be very comfortable & fresh linens & towels were provided each week. The couches were comfortable (they are often an issue at rentals) and the kitchen had everything we needed to make dinner. There was plenty of comfortable outdoor seating which we took advantage of. The pool was beautiful with roses blooming all along it but due to some chilly weather we only used it a couple of times. The location of the house was perfect! Castelfiorentino was a short ride away (5mins) and from there we took the train to Florence, Pisa & Sienna. There was so much to do in this area that after a month we still didn’t see everything we would have liked. We loved the town and frequently visited it to pick up whatever we needed. We found a favorite restaurant, Rosmarino Bistrot, that we ended up visiting almost every week because we felt the food was exceptional. The highlight of our visit was attending a festival in town on a Saturday night where we had the best time. There was a roving band dressed as monks that played great music, magicians, street performers and it seemed that the whole town turned out. We laughed the whole evening. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Our hosts Cinzia and Katia invited us to a Sunday dinner with some of their other guests & it was 4 hours of superb eating and drinking with Cinzia & Andrea’s daughter, Guila doing a fabulous job of translating for us. My husband felt it was the best food of our trip. There were some issues with the house all brought on by our ignorance of how things work in Europe and they showed up asap and resolved all issues. We can not say enough good things about our hosts. We felt they showed us the true warm spirit of the Italian people. Thank you so much Cinzia, Katia, Andrea & Guila.

This was my first Airbnb experience and it could not have gone any better. Katia and Cinzia were the best hosts and were extremely generous and attentive to our needs. We traveled with a 13 month old and they were able to accommodate with a pack and play and mattress for sleeping, a playard (also called a baby box in Italy), and even a few toys. They were so sweet to our little bambino. Additionally after traveling 15 hours to Tuscany, they waited patiently for our arrival in the evening and early the next morning they had left freshly baked goods. We were so grateful for this after such a long trip, and they even provided some of their locally produced wine and olive oil for our stay. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. It was definitely modern with well equipped bathrooms and kitchen, fast internet, and all of the amenities listed. They also provide firewood and basics like towels, sheets, blankets, etc. For four adults and a baby there was plenty of room to spread out. The outdoor space was well kept and had amazing views of the surrounding hills and fields. There was a pool which was just closed for the fall, but it looked new and well maintained among the freshly cut grounds. The apartment is located among the hills just outside of Castelfiorentino. This is not located in the town and the roads are a little bumpy on the way up the steep hills, but once you start driving around the area you realize this is the norm! There’s a small group of homes/apartments immediately around you, but this never posed a problem as the area was tranquil, peaceful, and safe. You will definitely need a car to travel to and from, but the location is great for exploring the rest of Tuscany being about 30 minutes from San G., 50 minutes to Siena and Greve, 100 minutes to Montepulciano, etc. We’ve traveled a lot and our stay at Katia and Cinzia’s apartment was everything we imagined staying in Tuscany will be. It was such a unique experience that I think about every day and hope to one day return to. Many thanks for the hospitality and great memories.

We had a great vacation in Andrea’s Villa. The house is located in a small and nice village and it is very well equipped, clean and welcoming. Our children really liked the swimming pool and the sport equipment outside. To summarize: great place, great location and excellent for a family with children.

We had an excellent stay! When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Cinzia and Katia, our hosts for the week. They gave us a tour through the house and showed us the garden and pool. The view from the garden was very beautiful and it was very spacious. The pool was extremely clean (Katia & Cinzia came every morning to clean it). The house was in true Tuscan style and very charming . It was very spacious and all necessary equipment was available. The rooms were very spacious, comfortable beds, a fan in 2 bedrooms and the wifi worked perfect. We also had a large terrace and a nice garden. All information about the surroundings was available in the house. The house is very well located to visit the Tuscan highlights (Siena, Florence, Volterra, …), all locations are max 1,5h driving. We had a fantastic holiday in a beautiful house with very warm and charming hosts that did everything to make our stay perfect!

Wow, from the moment we arrived we felt like we were living a dream! The house is truly nestled in the beautiful hills of Chianti. We were greeted by the host’s family and made to feel welcome. From the delicious wine, olive oil, fresh eggs, plums, grapes and figs, all made and grown there, to the donation of pasta, we felt like a part of the family. The house is spectacular, the rooms beautifully decorated, comfortable and furnished with everything you would need. The baker even came in his van every morning and you could purchase bread and pizza. We loved sitting out on the deck after exploring the surrounding towns. Florence, Pisa, Siena, and San Gimignano are all close by (30-50 minutes) as well as numerous wineries. Andrea’s family helped us find a wonderful restaurant in the neighboring town, L’Archibugio, and gave us information about the local spa (which we didn’t get to go to). They were always available to help in any way and we really appreciated it. They made our stay very special and we were certainly return.

Très belle maison, la description correspond parfaitement. Très bien entretenu en très propre. Propriétaires très sympathique et serviable. Vue magnifique avec beau coucher de soleil. La grande piscine avait chaque jour un entretien par le propriétaire lui-même. Environnement rurale, mais idéalement situé en Toscane et á 3 km du village. Dans un mot: hautement recommandé pour une vacance avec la famille!!

If I were to leave a one-word feedback instead of up to 500 words, it would be « beautiful »! That word perfectly describes the villa, pool and the surrounding area. And most of all, the warm and hospitable ladies, Cinzia, Katia and Julia. While young Julia speaks good enough English, we hardly had any problems when she wasn’t around, as we managed to survive using a mixture of their broken English and my worse than basic Italian. We were speaking heart to heart. The comfortable accommodation, beautifully maintained garden and stunning views from the pool area were further pleasures. And our kids (and Dad) enjoyed table tennis as well. Next time we’ll bring some new table tennis bats :-). It is not straightforward to find the villa but we managed without too much trouble. We loved the fact that it is pitched right at the top of the hill. Florence and Pizza are both within an hour long commute and there are plenty of other places of interest near-by. There is so much more I could say but it’s sufficient to conclude that all four of us were unanimous that we’d be back. We will see you again soon.June 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Andrea’s apartment. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Cinzia and Katia and they kindly showed us through their wonderful apartment and nearby pool area. The apartment was fantastic, very clean and had everything our family of four needed during our 7 day stay. The kitchen was very well equipped with clean pots/pans and appliances. The pool was enjoyed by all, but particularly so by our 8 and 6 year old. It was cleaned daily and was very comfortably equipped with sun chairs, umbrellas and pergola’s for shade. Andrea, Cinzia, Katia and Giulia are very friendly and hospitable and we even enjoyed an evening at their farm picking cherries, seeing their farm animals and the kids loved the tractor ride with Andrea. Couldn’t wipe the smile from their face and a definite highlight for them. Overall it was wonderful accommodation and a highlight of our trip so far. Highly recommend and would love to return one day. Thank you Andrea, Cinzia, Katia and Giulia for a wonderful stay.June 2014

Our stay in the house in the hills of Chianti was beyond our expectations! The accommodations were comfortable and the location was perfect! Andrea and his whole family welcomed us and made us feel like we were family. They shared their home, olive oil, wine and fresh eggs. We highly recommend this home to anyone who wants to feel like a part of this amazing culture! Ben, Mary, Bo, Patty and Norm

We and our 3 kids had a wonderful stay in the “Agriturismo Giulia”. The kindness of the owners and their attention throughout our stay made it even more enjoyable. The house is very comfortable, very clean and functional. Everything you could need to have a pleasant stay, the pool and the garden with views of the hills allowed us to enjoy the Tuscan atmosphere. The location of the house is excellent in the centre of the triangle Florence, Pisa, Siena, which allows you to visit all the wonders of the region without losing too much time on the road! We hardly recommend this agriculturist. If we come to Tuscany again, we’ll definitely go back to this place. *You can also take the train from the local station to and from Pisa and Florence. The garden is nice with a patio and eating area with a barbecue and then a path down to the pool (shared with the other part of the house). The pool is large and there are plenty of sunloungers so we never even noticed we were sharing.

Our vacation was just perfect in Casa Giulia. An extremely friendly and helpful family and a tipical tuscan house, lovely little towns around. Firenze is very close, 20 minutes by drive. Its a very nice area for biking as well. We were absolutely pleased with everything thank you again for the delecious home made olive oil, vines and your generosity. We hope we can return one day!Jobb házat és vendéglátókat nem is kívánhattunk volna. Kiváló házi borokkal és olíva olajjal várt minket a család, és mindvégig készségesen segítségünkre voltak. A ház kifogástalanul tiszta és csendes. Firenze könnyen megközelíthető autóval (20 perc). Bicikli túrára is érdemes egy fél napot szánni, és a környező kisvárosokat bebarangolni. Mindenkinek meleg szívvel ajánljuk!

Nous avons séjourné 2 semaines dans ce gîte magnifique qui répond parfaitement à la description qui en est faite. Le gîte LAVANDA a été rénové avec goût et est très fonctionnel et bien équipé! La piscine est grande et splendide et entretenue quotidiennement par les propriétaires. Le gîte est très bien situé et à proximité de belles villes (Sienne, Florence, San Giminiano, Lucca, Pise, …). La cerise sur le gâteau est l’extrême gentillesse des propriétaires qui sont aux petits soins.

Nous avons en tout point passé une semaine absolument parfaite. Le calme est absolu : le gite est situé dans un petit bourg au milieu des collines toscanes, entouré de vignes et d »oliviers, avec de très belles vues sur ce paysage qui ressemble un peu à un grand jardin. L »équipement est très complet (nous avons rarement bénéficié d »un équipement aussi complet). La décoration du gite lui-même est très agréable et le jardin permet de se relaxer (et aux enfants de se défouler après les visites). Pour les visites, situation idéale également, à équidistance entre Sienne et Florence d »une part, San Gimignano et la région de Greve in Chianti d »autre part. Il faut aussi parler des promenades à pied, profitez-en la campagne alentour est réellement très agréable (la carte Kompass 660 peut aider bien qu »assez imprécise). Et enfin, le plus : la très grande gentillesse de la famille, et notamment de Maria, la Nonna. Notre fille de 8 ans l »a particulièrement appréciée, elle l »emmenait souvent le matin voir les conogli et les galline. Bref, c »est un lieu idéal pour une famille avec des enfants qui souhaite découvrir la Toscane. Nous le recommandons grandement.We have spent a wonderful week in this cottage. The place is really very quiet; the house is located in a small village in the Tuscany hills, surrounded with olive trees and vineyards, offering stunning views over this landscape which looks a little bit like a great, organised garden. The cottage itself is very clean, well equipped, well designed; rarely could be take advantage of such a broad set of amenities. The garden is quite suitable for you to relax after the visits in Firenze and the other spots (and for your kids to let off steam). About the visits, the location is quite good, halfway from Firenze to Siena on one hand, from San Gimignano to Greve in Chianti on another hand. I should also mention the numerous footpaths in the neighbourhood of the village, offering a broad range of possible walks (they are really worth it, the countryside is so picturesque there). The Kompass map 660 might help, although fairly imprecise. And the key point: the family Provvedi was so nice, so helpful, with a specific emphasis on Maria, the wonderful Nonna. Our 8 year old daughter especially enjoyed her visits to the rabbits and the hens with her. In summary, the ideal spot for a family with kids willing to discover Tuscany. We warmly recommend it.

This was the perfect place for the 6 of us. The peaceful countryside location is so Tuscan! Just walking from your door the countryside is breathtakingly beautiful.The charming house is ancient, traditional and carefully converted by Andrea to include all the modern conveniences and everything we might need.It is very clean, fresh and well maintained. Beds are comfy. As 3 couples we appreciated the house layout giving privacy. We loved eating on the balcony, being shown the farm and too much more to write here! Take a bus to Florence from Tavarnelle but then drive for the short trips to exquisite towns and countryside. Everything is easy driving distance! We cannot speak more highly of the the Provedi family who are wonderfully kind, helpful and generous. Nonna Maria is a joy to meet. I hope you choose this house and have as memorable a holiday as we all did!

La famille Provvedi nous a accueilli avec une gentillesse incroyable ! Ils nous ont offert des bouteilles de leur vin et leur huile d »olive pour déguster la production de leur exploitation. Mes enfants ont joué avec leur fille. Nos conversations avec eux ont été un vrai bonheur. Si nous avons l »occasion de revenir en Toscane, nous reviendrons chez eux…

Very charming village with beautiful walks among the olive trees. What makes the difference is the sincere welcome of the family who tried to help us in any way and shared the pleasures of its life with us (they gave us homemade oil and wine and bread and invited children to play and to visit animals). You feel you are part of the family and share the smile grandma Maria has all the time inspite of the difficulties of life.

Loved our stay, incredible value. The apartment is huge, 3 floors, nice kitchen in a very neat area surrounded by olive trees and small vineyards. The unit was immaculate and as described. The host family lives next door and we can’t say enough about how friendly they were; extremely warm, generous and kind. We would definitely love to stay here again and highly recommend this accomodation to anyone that wants a quiet flat in the Tuscan countryside that is also close to Florence, San Gimignano and other small towns.
