The living room has a sofa-bed for two persons and a sofa only for sitting. On the side of the sofa-bed there is a built-in cupboard. A mobile folding screen separates the living and sleeping areas.

Tina and Franco welcome you to Agriturismo La Tinaia, their authentic Tuscan farmhouse winery, located in a natural area on the beautiful hills of the Florentine Chianti region , at only 10 km from the center of Florence.

The property is at only 10 min drive from the Tramway station in Scandicci with free parking. Trams come every 3-4 minutes. Only 16-18 min and you are at Santa Maria Novella, the center of Florence.

La Tinaia is located in a very quiet place right in the middle of an unbelievably picturesque area of Tuscany. The farmhouse is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and woods. All the apartments are cozy, bright with spactacular hilltop views. They were restored with particular care respecting the characteristics of the Tuscan farmhouse. The decoration consists of furnitures of the early 1900’s. All the apartments have Sat TV, free wi-fi and some have air conditioning.

Agriturismo La Tinaia is particularly recommended for those who want to spend holidays under the sign of quiet and to discover the unique artistic and naturalistic heritage of Tuscany. It is the perfect place for daily visits to Florence. We are glad to book your visits to "Uffizi" and "Accademia" museums and to guide you in discovering our beautiful region.

About Tina Radassao

We are Franco and Tina.

"La Tinaia farmholidays" was created from our love of this area and of nature, and from the desire to share, with friends from all over the world, the tranquillity, the beauty and fine living of this enchanting corner of Tuscany, only 15 minutes by car from Florence.

We left the city life in Florence and the office work on '97 to start a new life in the countryside. We have restaured all the house by ourself with only few helps. The apartments have been personally designed, finished and furnished with particular care, to give you the feeling of “just like home'.

We learned growing olive trees and vineyard and making excellent Chianti wine and extra virgin olive oil.

After many years working very hard, we are very proud of our farmholiday 'La Tinaia' and of our top quality products.

Tina Radassao purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Tina Radassao chose Florentine Hills

We fell in love with this place for its unspoiled nature, sweeping views and beautiful sunsets. We love nature but we also love Florence and the proximity to the town made us decide to live in this paradise.

The house was in state of abandonement and we have spent many years to restore it and transform it completely, trying to valorise its typical Tuscan architecture.

We are happy to offer our guests the opportunity to experience the excitement that this place transmits.

What makes this apartment unique

Ideal to visit the city: 10 min by car from the tram station that takes you to downtown Florence in 18 min. Optimal comfort with good bedding, bathrooms and kitchens well equipped. Friendly welcome and advice to visit the area. Possibility to taste high quality products: wine and olive oil.

Lovely as always & new Italian recipes from Franco

  • 5 of 5

Ever since the start of La Tinaia in 2000, when we found it by shear conincidence, we return once every 1-2 years. La Tinaia is a perfect spot to visit all the highlights of Tuscany, or simply stay on the property and read a book, and it is always a joy to meet Tina & Franco again and enjoy their hospitality and positive attitude.

La Tinaia is located on a quite spot, yet it's only 20min from Florence, 10min to the supermarket in Scandicci and the restaurant Fiore (I can recommend the primo 'Pappardelle di Papero' and secondo 'Spezzatino di Cinghiale') is just a 50 meter walk.

In the weekend we were invited to join a La Tinaia dinner with all the guests, which was plentiful & superb, like a typical Italian family feast. Antipasti, 2x primi, secondo, torta, vino and grappa, it was all there and all home-made. Chef Franco also shared some new recipes with us, which we will definitely try back home.

vacances à la Tinaia

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons séjourné chez Tina et Franco, deux semaines, dans l'appartement ERICA du 19 juillet au 2 août 2014. Tout était parfait : L'appartement est très propre, confortable et très bien équipé. La piscine est très jolie avec une magnifique vue sur la montagne et les vignes. La situation est idéale pour visiter Florence. Un tram au départ de Scandicci nous amène dans le centre de Florence en 20 minutes. Il existe un tarif famille à la journée très appréciable de 6 euros aller-retour avec les transports illimités dans Florence. L'endroit est idéalement placé pour découvrir les principaux sites touristiques de la Toscane.

Tina et Franco sont d'une extrême gentillesse et toujours de bons conseils. Ils ont organisés un repas avec tous les locataires au cours duquel nous avons passé une excellente soirée et dégusté les excellents plats préparés par Franco.

Nous avons passé en leur compagnie d'excellentes vacances ainsi que nos enfants Mélanie et Alexis.

Nous conseillerons cette location à nos proches et nos amis et nous pensons y revenir un jour.

Christine, Patrice, Mélanie et Alexis

Nous avons passé quatre jours délicieux à la TINAIA chez Tina et Franco.

L'appartement ERICA est décoré avec beaucoup de soin, très propre et très calme.

L'établissement est idéalement situé dans les hauteurs de Scandici en pleine nature mais non loin du Tramway idéal pour aller à Florence.

Les propriétaires sont charmants et leur huile d'olive délicieuse !

Un grand merci pour votre accueil et j'espère à bientôt!

Urlaub in der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen wunderschönen Urlaub in der Toskana verbracht. Das Haus besticht durch seine Lage und die Nähe zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Toskana.

Super nette Vermieter und ein gemeinschaftliches Essen mit allen Gästen des Hauses haben diesen Urlaub abgerundet. Wir möchten im nächsten Jahr wiederkommen.
