About the property

Budget Friendly, peaceful location but only 3 minutes walking to town centre with restaurants/bus:30 Min to Florence & Sien

This large independent villa is split into two units: the ground floor is the rental apartment with its own entrance door. The top floor and lower level is where we live. Our part of garden is fenced so you have complete freedom to use the area with barbecue and the pool. Your apartment has a good size balcony with views of the pool, countryside and neighborhood.

Your aparment is a real home with a fully equipped kitchen, lots of space and with plenty of natural light, which makes it particularly indicated for multiple week stays. From time to time the family (only) use the pool but we have created your own pool area with sun chairs. The property is completely fenced in and we have our own outdoor area where we keep our pets: Bach, the dog and Serena, the cat. We enjoy having guests around so feel free to use any area in the gardens. The neighborhood is quite and safe other than being very easy to find on arrival. The road is paved and lit at night so it makes it easy to walk to town which is conveniently located a short walk away (500 meters). The centre of Tavarnelle brims with life: restaurants, shops and open air festivals take place throughout the season. Within 30 min drive you can plan a day out to San Gimignano, Chianti villages. Just about 1 hour away is Siena, Volterra, Pisa, Lucca and much more.

Wine lovers are in the right area: we are in the heart of Chianti and have a list of great wineries where to do wine tasting even on an escorted tour. For the more romantic, the departure for the hot air ballooning over Tuscany is just few hundred meters away - please enquiry if interested.

Beautiful Apartment/villa wonderfully located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as described; spacious, welcoming, and ready access to all the beautiful sights of Tuscany

Antonella and Angelo were perfect hosts, helping with local logistics, providing information on local drives to explore, and even joined us for dinner in Tavernelle one evening

Access to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Greve in Chianti are all within 1 hour drive, with the advantage of staying in a small town, Tavernelle Val di Pesa, that has local charm without hordes of tourists.

I highly recommend this property as a base for exploring Tuscany, or even for a more relaxed vacation enjoying the pool, local walks, etc.

Very spacious, superb location with a number of restaurants within easy reach.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic hosts who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The apartment allows great access to Siena and Florence. Being in such close proximity to the town meant ice cream parlour, bakery and supermarket were in easy reach.Great for a young family to explore Tuscany.

Great hosts, great place. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended! We spent only 1 week in July 2017. It is too short for Tuscany. The hosts are great people with big hearts, so you feel at home. The big advantage is a pool where you can chill out during summer hot days. Tavernelle is a very nice town where you have impression that everybody knows each other. The location is fantastic. Only 30 min. to Sienna and Florence. If you like dogs there is a friendly Bach. Kitchen is fully equipped, there is a table tennis and gas barbecue to prepare your own meals. The town also offers some restaurants with local food and very delicious ice cream! Thank you Antonella and Angelo!

Great base for stay in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 2 fantastic weeks at Casa da Antonella this summer at the start of July. We loved the apartment which was spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The gardens were beautiful with a very nice swimming pool, barbecue and seating area and a table tennis table. The apartment is well located on the outskirts of town but within a short stroll from local shops and restaurants. There is a local supermarket nearby as well. Tavarnelle Val di Pesa proved an ideal base from which to visit historic and beautiful towns and villages in the Chianti region and was also just 30 minutes drive from Florence. Above all however we were bowled over by the hospitality hosts Antonella and Angelo. Our children voted our two weeks in Tuscany their best holiday ever and my wife and I are in total agreement.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Casa da Antonella. The apartment is spacious, clean, very well equipped and has stunning views across the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Tavarnelle is well located for exploring the area and has several restaurants and bars. It is about 30mins from Florence and Siena and 1hour 15 from Pisa. Our holiday was made extra special by the hospitality of Antonella and Angelo who were always happy to help.

We hope to return soon!

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We received a very warm welcome from Antonella & Angelo, the apartment was fantastic, inside and out, it was clean, comfortable, very spacious and well equipped. The apartment was well located for exploring Tuscany. The pinball machine was fun, as was the table tennis, the selection of garden furniture was excellent too. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday and didn't want to leave!
