About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom which sleeps 4/6

La Canigiana is an organic farm 20 minutes drive from the heart of Florence, immersed in one of the most beautiful Chianti's areas. The atmosphere of a private home away from any noise and rushed urban atmosphere make La Canigiana the ideal place to spend a memorable and relaxing holiday . A day out to see the city's art treasures couldn't be easier! After a day spent visiting the museums and the monuments of the city, don't miss enjoying the sunset from the beautiful panoramic terrace or the breathtaking view of Florence .You may have the option to rent the entire guesthouse in total privacy being the only guests enjoying the tranquility of our farm suitable up to 4/6 people or the downstairs apartment with large terrace with a great view, or the upstairs apartment, both suitable up to 2/3 people. The cypress trees and olive trees, the slopes that curve and follow the magnificent scenery, this is the scenary, really amusing! It is said that in order to better appreciate the beauty of a territory, one has to enjoy and savour it slowly, guided by the protracted cycles of Nature. There are those who love long walks immersed in nature and others who prefer bustling city streets, country roads or curving, up and downhill mountain routes. These and more can be found in the Chianti area - Barberino Val d’Elsa, Greve in Chianti, San Casciano in Val di Pesa and Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa boast rolling hills and vineyards paired with the chance to enjoy a glass of fine wine. As you cross the territory, it’s impossible not to find castles, hamlets, solitary abbeys, and history-filled villa-farms. Whether by car, foot, bike or on horse-back, the territory offers myriad opportunities if you are looking to immerse yourself in a centuries-old culture that is immersed in beauty. These are itineraries that are part of the history, the beauty, uniqueness, culture and history of the Tuscan region. We'll help you finding 'your' itinerary!

Franco and Alessandra are truly committed to do everything they possibly can to satisfy their guests.

La Canigiana is a 45-acre organic farm located on the gentle sloping hills of Chianti district of Tuscany. The estate has been in the same family for 130 years. At La Canigiana, we strongly believe in maintaining the delicate chain of a balanced biological ecosystem and only use traditional organic products to protect our olive trees for the production of an olive oil which carries an I.C.E.A. certificate. The farm is located just 7.5 miles from Florence and less than an hour drive from Siena, Pisa, Lucca, and many other premiere tourist locations. Away from any noise and rushed urban atmosphere, La Canigiana is an excellent choice for people who would like to spend the vacation in a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere, and enjoy all comforts of home, fresh air and unparalleled vista of Chianti hills and the town of Florence.

We'll run by very pleasant and hard working people

  • 5 of 5

Close enough to Florence but far enough away to be "away from it all". Ideal location. Car required.

Great holiday-destination close to florence

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the "Rimessa Apartment" very much: From the balcony you have a great view over the typical tuscany landscape, it's very easy to drive to florence (only 6 km by car and then we used the bus); we enjoyed the big pool for refreshment and the flat is well equipped and clean.

Fantastic place to stay when in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at this lovely villa in Tuscany. We stayed in La Rimessa which is the downstairs apartment with its own patio. The patio allowed us to enjoy dinners outside while looking at the spectacular views.

The apartment had everything we needed to be comfortably and the owner was very helpful with maps and advise on the best places to see. You will need a car as public transprotation is very limited. You can see Florence from the property and it is about a 10 minute drive.

If we ever go back to Tucany staying here would be a must !

Underbar familjevistelse!

  • 5 of 5

We, 2 adults and 2 Children aged 4 and 7, visited the house during summer 2014 and had a wonderful time. It was our first time renting a house abroad and we could not have been better welcomed. We arrived at the house around midnight and we were greated by Alessandra who was a very nice and welcoming host.

The views and the surroundings were amazing and it is a very quiet and beautiful farm. We had the house to ourselves the first few days and the pool to ourselves most of the week.

It is very easy to travel to Florence or Pisa by car and easy to find your way around if you have a GPS.

I absolutely recommend this house and host to others!
