About the property

Loft Apartment Very Casual Living Sleeps 5/6 People Perfect for Families.

The Loft apartment has been created from the renovation of the old warehouse of our 14 Century Tuscan manor, the architecture of the place is very striking and we have tried to maintain it's shape in tack by creating only 3 walls which are the confines of the bathroom, hence creating a large 140 meter square open space with amazing beams ceiling features (which are still the originals). It is composed by one double bedroom, large fully fitted kitchen, sitting room with large TV flat screen surround sound, a pool table that doubles up if necessary as a large dinning table, also a large mezzanine which has 1 twin/double room and a room with a king-size bed thus sleeping 5/6 people without touching sofas beds. 2 wc's, complete bathroom with shower.A huge American style fridge that dominates the room. The views from the apartment are spectacular especially at sun set, the 10 windows and 1 skylight that surround the apartment make it very light and cool as the breeze can captured from any side. The outside of the Magazzini is a typical courtyard dominated by the large well/cistern at it's centre, here one can relax and take it all in, or have a great barbecue day with friends or family. The guests are also allowed to wonder into the historical garden of the manor where a large trampoline is set for the pleasure of the children, also a table football and ping pong are available in the garden to use. The historical garden is used by the owners but there is plenty of space to find privacy, like on the large panoramic terrace of 200 square meters overlooking the valley, great at sun set, the smaller kids love to go and play here with their 2/3/4 wheel vehicles. It is to be noted that guests have the use of a very large 10 x 12 meter pool for cooling down on those very hot summer days. The pool has a beach type area for small children and it gradually descends to the maximum depth of 1.55 metres. A great pool for playing and relaxing, swimming length can be done across the 12 metres in the deep end. A large lawn for poolside activities such as football, badminton is set in between the pool and the terrace. Sun loungers for lazy sunbathers are available.

The place to go !

  • 5 of 5

If I were selfish and dishonest, I would write that Genka's accomodation is not to be recommended at all... Just for the sake of dissuading other travellers from booking it and having it all for my family and myself next summer...

But the truth is that this is an amazing place, within easy reach of marvellous cities like Lucca, San Miniato, Sienna, Firenze, San Gimignano etc. The accomodation in itself is cosy and absolutely awesome : plenty of space, really well-equipped, with a striking and nice architecture. To crown it all, you have access to a swimming-pool that overviews the splendid Tuscanian landscape - you can also enjoy wandering in the domain. This is definitely the place to go for your holidays !!!

AND Genka and his family are really nice and welcoming hosts. Thanks again to them !!!

The local area around the villa is worth a visit especially San Miniato famous for it's white truffle, Terriciola for it's wineries, Vinci being the native town of Leonardo, A little further a field but still within an hours drive are Firenze, Lucca, Pisa, Livorno, San Gimignano. The whole of the surrounding area is rich in natural hot water springs such as Casciana Terme, Montecatini terme, Ulivetto Terme, Venturia, Saturnia. There are many very good restaurants to enjoy such as Casa Masi in Montaione, La Greppia in Peccioli, 4 Gigli in Montopoli Val D'Arno. The local fairs and festivals are many and a whole list can be got from the Tuscan regional site, Regione Toscana, a few famous ones are the wild boar in Chianni, Mercanzia which is all for street artists which occupy the whole of Certaldo for 3 days in July, Terriciola for it's wine festival, Lucca with it's music festival where famous international artist come and play, also of note the opera festival at Puccini's native town of Torre del Lago. Tuscany in Autumn is also very interesting as it's the wine harvest in September and the olive harvest in November, hunting season starts, and with the first rains the porcini mushrooms start being found, and also with truffles beginning to be found makes this period the most exciting for the taste buds. The days at this time of the year are so clear that on a sunny day one can see the snow peaks of the Appenine chain from the villa. Tuscany and our local area has a lot to offer during most of the year.
