Great Value. Bright, Clean And Comfortable -2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Pool



Updated: 08-Oct-2015
Tuscan Apartment, shops, and the main town of Castiglion. Family Friendly -

This recently renovated farmhouse with shared pool is located in the lovely Val di Chio a few kilometers from the famous Tuscan hill town of Castiglion Fiorentino - rich in history, in the heart of beautiful Tuscany.

This property offers exceptional value for those looking for a bright and cheerful home in Tuscany's countryside with easy access to many of Tuscany's famous attractions - (without long white roads)

Newly refurbished with modern features.The apartment has its own private entrance and offers a lovely clean and bright home from home for you to enjoy. Lots of amenities including TV, WiFi, Pool and outside dining areas make this a great place for young families

The spacious home offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite) with sitting room, and kitchen/diner.

Beautifully clean and welcoming, the modern decor provides a very comfortable family home. The strong colours used in the apartments, express the owners intention for guests to feel relaxed in a modern, warm and and yet relaxing environment.

Outside the garden areas are well maintained and provide separate shaded eating areas perfect for family lunches and other meals. There is also a large barbecue next to the pool area where there is ample seating and shade to enjoy a relaxing day in Tuscany

Villa Nonna is the ideal place for a peaceful and relaxing family vacation - especially those who enjoy the countryside - taking long walks or cycling - here there are numerous marked trails for both.

The nearby village of Santa Cristina offers a shop, bar and a family restaurant although in the town of Castiglion Fiorentino, there is a wider choice along with supermarkets and specialist shopping.

Here, everything here is clean, fresh and inviting. Including the pool which is shared with just one other apartment. The WiFi is excellent and free of charge. Besides enjoying this Tuscan property, it is also an easy place to access.(No long white roads !). Form here there are many options to visit the famous Tuscan hill towns of Castiglion, Cortona, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Pienza and more. Even a day trip to Florence and all its treasures is easy - either by train from the local station, or by car (about an hour). Around these towns are many historic, food and musical festivals. May there are food festivals, June sees the horse race (Palio) of Castiglion, July the medieval parades and flag throwing displays, August music festivals and September the wine harvests. There are also many vineyards to visit and the local family restaurants are all offering great food.

Guestbook comments from the owner

September 2014.

Barbara is the perfect hostess. A fresh baked cake and some vino Santo - waiting to welcome us and show us around. The place is spic and span (Obviously Barbara and her mum are very house proud and it shows). The good sized bedrooms , large (colourful) bathrooms etc all much better than we had anticipated from the photos. THe pool - again, very clean and welcoming was the perfect place for relaxation. Thanks for a giving us you a good Tuscan experience.

July 2013:We loved this beautiful Tuscan home for our three week adventure in Tuscany, Italy, comfortable, obviously a much loved home. Wonderful for lazy days by the pool and for days out to visit other towns and villages in the area. Cortona and Castiglion have great weekly markets, and perfect for buying fresh provisions. The owners and their English speaking agent are very helpful , warm and really helpful. We loved the experience, hospitality, freedom and the Tuscan life style.

June: 2013. My husband and I and our children, aged 4 to 14, spent a week in June at "Nonna's villa". The apartment was spacious, cosy, comfortable and impeccably clean. the gardens well cared for and, at night, the children loved to watch the fire-flies while we - enjoyed a late family supper feeling totally relaxed here

Fantastisch!! Simple and wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

We with our 3 children (12, 10, 8) stayed here last year. A wonderful accommodation in beautiful clean surroundings. The area has many attractions to enjoy and Florence too easily accessible 1 hour by train (station 4km away ). The owner organised a wine tour for us and the written guide book available had many ideas to occupy us. Very helpful. The accommodation is very well maintained, comfortable. Pool and garden very nice. (lucky for us) we had the place to ourselves for the first week and the second we met family from Scotland who had the garden aprtment. We had a top holiday here. Thanks

Much enjoyed family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Of course, we can recommend this and we hope this helps others to enjoy the house and surrounds.

Sometimes, it is the small things which leave a lasting memory. Here, it is the kindness and generous nature of the hostess Barbara. Having had problems with our car at Florence, we were very delayed - missing the opportunity to shop. Having explained our situation via her English speaking friend Terry), we eventually arrived at 11:30 and found a selection of cheeses, salads, meats along with dome fruit juice and wine. Plus, at that time of night a smile too!

The apartment upstairs, large and very comfortable. the two blue bathrooms - very modern, comfy sofas and a kitchen with ample space. The outside, very enjoyable pool and play area for the boys. During our two weeks here, we met some other families (from Holland and the second week from France) with children. We enjoyed their company - but we also had our own space to enjoy without our feeling crowded.
