Book a stay here! .... Even though I don't want to share this gem of a place! Honestly, one of the best mini-breaks we have had. A wonderful location, which gives you the feeling you are away from the world, but is actually so close to local amenities and road networks that you can easily visit some of the more famous Tuscan destinations and the delicious food! Also, some excellent hikes and bike trails to enjoy nearby. A real place to relax and enjoy some quiet time in wonderful company.
It's been over 6 months since our stay at the cottage and I can still remember so many perfect details. How warm and friendly our hosts were and how beautiful and picturesque the cottage was. We plan on going back next time we are in Italy, only staying longer than 3 nights next time!
We have been using Airbnb/home rental services for almost a decade and this is the best place we have ever stayed. The cottage is incredibly private. Alessandro's house is just down the hill, but with the olive orchard and the separate entrance you feel as if you are in a completely secluded oasis in the mountains. The view and the yard are spectacular. We spent an entire day enjoying the outdoor spaces and we loved the various outdoor furniture, comfortable chairs, dining area and the outdoor bed. The yard has plenty of sun and shade and we loved the ability to open the house up to the outdoors. The house itself is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully planned. We cooked a few meals while we were there and found everything we needed in the kitchen which is equipped with the very best in appliances. The lighting both in the space and outside is very well thought out and can set whatever mood your heart desires. The bed is fantastic. Certainly the highlight of our trip was meeting Alessandro. He is a very warm and kind host and has a wonderful family. They have truly built a paradise and we hope to come back.
Alessandro's cottage was a highlight of our trip to Italy! A gorgeous retreat outside of the hustle and bustle of Florence. His hospitality is unparalleled beginning with the campari spritzers upon our arrival to the delicious pastry for our last morning. We will definitely be back!
An incredible location in a beautifully preserved house, I highly recommended Alessandro’s accommodation. Surrounded by olive groves and the stunning night stars was a dream come true. Alessandro and Emiliano are truly amazing and generous hosts with lots of tips and information. Sparklingly clean and thoughtfully arranged with all the amenities you could possibly need. This is our favourite by far and only wish we could have stayed longer. Thankyou so much Alessandro and Emiliano for such a wonderful experience.”
