Casa Toscana is a delicious rural romantic 2 bedroom apt, refined taste (1 double, 1 two single) kitchen, living room and garden in a wonderful Tuscan countryside. It is fresh in the summer because of the big stone walls and warm in the winter for the pellet / wood heating floor.

We have projected in 2008 the restoration of our 16th century old farmhouse in a sustainably way and nature, attentive to minimum energy impact: solar panels, wood / pellet heating, roof-water used for vegetable garden, bio-architecture restoration with natural and bio materials.

The ground floor is connected to the garden through door windows. Brand new, fully equipped kitchen: electric hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Service bathroom with shower sink and bidet. First floor: you will find a large, nice-decorated bedroom, with bathroom in the room. The second bedroom has a cypress wood parquet floor overlooking a cypress wood.

The rent includes grill, umbrella, table and chairs. The house is located in an organic eco-friendly, ogm-free 14 ha farm (Podere Montisi, Calenzano, Florence, Tuscany) that produces extra virgin olive oil, officinal Tuscan cooking herbs and Tuscan ancient heritage wheats - and 10,000 years old Einkorn - in harmony with nature and biodiversity. The farm is located in the Archaeological and Agricultural Park of Travalle.

Our family lives at Podere Montisi farm since 2010, every stone of the country, natural stone and Tuscan terracotta floors, natural lime, wax and natural colors for the walls, fragrant cypress wood for the mezzanine.

    Wonderful flat in a gorgeous setting

    From arrival to departure this was our little piece of Tuscan paradise. Close enough to the cities (Firenze, Pisa) if you want to get there but far away from the crowds in a tranquil, hidden valley known mostly to locals. Barbara and her family took excellent care of our needs, even finding toys for the little ones and helping with restaurant recommendations in the area. The kitchen was well equipped enough for cooking some delicious meals with the wonderful local Tuscan produce. We were sad to leave!

    Beautiful and very relaxing

    Beautiful home perfectly organized and very clean. Barbara was a wonderful host. She was very gracious and made sure everyone was comfortable. The place is about a 20 minute walk from restaurant/bar. Market is further out so plan to have a car or walk a bit. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the beautiful sights.

    Vacances en famille

    Nous avons passé 15 jours à Podere Montisi. La localisation est pratique pour visiter Florence et ses alentours et la Toscane en général. Nous avons été accueillis par Barbara et sa famille. Notre séjour a été un vrai plaisir. Barbara a su en toute discrétion nous faire profiter de notre séjour, et nous a concocté de nombreuses petites attentions (pain frais, confitures faits maison, œufs des poules de la ferme, légumes...) Nous avons également profité de la petite famille des chats (un spectacle quotidien...) et de l'adorable Byron (un Bouvier Bernois aussi imposant que sympathique!) La maison est très fonctionnelle, la décoration réalisée avec beaucoup de goût, la literie est de très bonne qualité Encore merci pour ce super séjour!

    Very nice house with beautiful landscape close to Florence

    Perfect location for visiting northern Tuscany. The area is great; there are breathtaking views from the front of the house. Within walking distance there is a fantastic restaurant with great food and service and without tourists  The Landlord is a charming, very helpful person. She will support you with any query. There are also things you should be advised of: the Landlord family lives in the same house (with separate entrance and rooms); they have cats and a big dog playing in the garden (which was a great fun for our kids); it looks like neighbors are not very friendly however we haven’t experienced that.

    Schöne Tage inmitten der Olivenhaine

    Barbara hat mit ihrer Herzlichkeit alles dafür getan, dass es uns gut geht. Ein sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt - trotz der Hitze. Im Haus war es schön kühl und es hat an nichts gefehlt.

    Perfekter Standort für einen Urlaub in der Toskana

    Groẞzügige und geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung, idyllisch auf dem Land gelegen und doch nah an Florenz. Ein guter Standort, um alle wesentlichen Orte der Toskana besuchen zu können. Barbara ist eine mehrsprachige und sehr hilfsbereite Gastgeberin.
