Beautiful country house 6km from the ancient walls of Florence town - Rustichetto della Certosa

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
9 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps 23

Located atop the hill of the ancient Certosa abbey of Florence, immersed in the green of countryside of Tuscany, The Certosa Country House is only 6 Km from the ancient walls of downtown Florence. The house is immersed in the quiteness of the contryside but in the same time is 3 kms away from the the 'Impruneta' highway exit, in a strategic position to visit the wonderful hills of Chianti Region and the centre of Florence!

The History: For the past few centuries, The Rustico della Certosa was a simple building created to welcome peasants working on the surrounding hills. During the 1980's the house was completely renovated, paying close attention not to remove or alter those unique elements that call to mind its rustic past (the ancient exposed wood beams, the original cotto floors from Impruneta).

From the 2005 year we restored three beautifull, fully indipendent units:

The Rustico della Certosa apartment. The biggest portion of the house: a fully indipendent apartment of 200 squared metres house!5BD 3BA

The Rustichetto della Certosa apartment. A fully indipendent apartment of 95 squared metres house. 3BD 2BA

The Rustichino della Certosa apartment. A fully indipendent apartment of 50 squared metres house. 1BD 1BA

All the three apartments has a private garden area with a table, chairs and umbrella. The garden is a true oasis where you can have lunch or dinner ouside or relax during the day.

POSITION

Located atop the hill of the ancient Certosa abbey of Florence, only 6 Km from the ancient walls of downtown Florence, the Rustico della Certosa is the ideal lodging for those who wish to visit the city during the day, and relax by night, immersed in the green countryside of Florence. The Rustico della Certosa is located by the 'Certosa' highway exit, in a strategic position to visit the wonderful hills of Tuscany!

During the day it is possible to visit the countless works of art of Florence, but to also organize short day-trips in the most famouse tuscany sites.

The country house has a very strategic position. For example it's near the four Tuscany UNESCO heritage sites:

1.Towers of Sangiminiano (30 minutes away from the property by car);

2.Historic centre of Siena (45 minutes away from the property by car);

3.Piazza del Duomo of Pisa (50 minutes away from the property by car);

4.Historic centre of Florence (10-15 minutes away from the property by car).

ONLY 400 METRES AWAY FROM THE PROPERTY THERE IS A WODERFULL POOL IMMERSED IN THE TUSCANY COUNTRYSIDE: DAILY TICKET 5 EUROS!

This Villa is incredible!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Rustico della Certosa was perfect! The beautiful villa is incredibly spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking dinner in the lovely kitchen, which has all the amenities you could need. We did not have a car; however, we were able to walk about a mile to the closest bus stop and make it into Florence without trouble. Alessandro and Enrico were beyond helpful and answered all of our needs so quickly! We would definitely recommend this villa for a peaceful, gorgeous stay just outside of Florence. Thank you so much for an amazing stay!

A Rustic Gem with fabulous Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Alessandro's place during the half term holiday in October. The house itself is located in a rural part of Impruneta and a car is absolutely essential for getting about if you are going to base yourselves here.

But I have to say that this was a priceless gem of a find: perfectly located to explore the City of Florence or to access the Tuscan Hills, the towns of Sienna and San Gimignano and the Chianti region, the hillside location offers stunning views of Florence and the Olive groves and vineyards that surround it. That sounds like I've cut-and-pasted from some glossy brochure - but it's absolutely true!

The villa itself is homely yet modern and above all, welcoming. It has every convenience you could ask for and is beautifully decorated. The owners clearly have an eye for detail and have made every effort to ensure guests are comfortable. It is all very tastefully done. Each bedroom is spacious and comfortable - besides being scrupulously clean.

During our stay, we encountered a problem with one of the tyres on our hire car. Having been told that our hire company would have charged excessively to help with this, we phoned Alessandro and he went to great lengths not only to direct us to a reputable garage - but he also did all the negotiations and translations. He could not have been more helpful!

Florence is astoundingly beautiful - and not as expensive as we'd been previously led to believe. We will certainly be revisiting the city - and we will make sure that we book with Alessandro. We know we won't be disappointed!

Lovely Italian hospitality in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

‘We had a very lovely stay at Villa Rustichetto. On our arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner Alessandro; we were made to feel like valued guests in his home. We were given a tour of the vegetable garden where an array of vegetables and fruits were picked for us to take back to our villa; from these freshly picked ingredients we were able to produce some delicious meals, full of flavour.

Whenever it was needed this Italian hospitality and care continued throughout our stay.

The Villa is comfortable, furnished with style, exceptionally clean and well equipped; and with a large garden to relax in and enjoy leisurely meals - especially breakfast!

The location is quiet, peaceful, but not isolated, with many amenities only a short distance away; a perfect place to return to after a day of sightseeing in this beautiful region of Italy.

Un cadre magnifique

  • 4 of 5

La maison est située au coeur de la campagne toscane. Depuis la route qui borde l'entrée de la maison on a une vue splendide sur la campagne, les oliviers, les cyprès et quelques villas florentines mais aussi sur Florence !!!

Proche de Florence et des routes pour aller découvrir Sienne ou des villages tels que San Gimignano, c'est l'endroit idéal pour séjourner.

La maison est très moderne, bien équipée et bien entretenue. Elle dispose d'un grand jardin où l'on peut trouver un toboggan pour les enfants.

Alessandro et son frère ont été très accueillants et très réactifs à toutes les questions.

Si vous cherchez un lieu pour résider aux abords de FLorence, ne cherchez plus vous l'avez trouvé !
