IL COLLE DI FALTUGNANO: immersed in an olive grove on a Tuscan hills and with an amazing view of the valley, the stone cottage with every comfort has been remarkably recovered a few months ago by an old house, a caravanserai a few century ago. In a strategic position close to Florence, but also to Prato, Pistoia, Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Mugello and Chianti: a good base for exploring Tuscany and be independent at the same time with supermarkets and restaurants just a few minutes away. Close to a farmhouse you can buy fresh local organic ingredients, such as bio vegetables, eggs or cheese.

In a strategic position close to Florence, but also to Prato, Pistoia, Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Mugello and Chianti: a good base for exploring Tuscany and be independent at the same time with supermarkets and restaurants just a few minutes away. Close to a farmhouse you can buy fresh local organic ingredients, such as bio vegetables, eggs or cheese. Private access and parking, it is part of a larger historic property in the small medieval village of Faltugnano. The cottage has a simply astonishing outdoor area with three large and furnished terraces around the cottage to choose the exposure, a private garden and an olive trees field. In the cottage a Carrara marble kitchen with a typical tuscany sink and a dominant orange SMEG refrigerator is equipped with dishwasher, microwave, kettles, coffee makers and everything you need if you love cooking as I do. Dining tables both inside and outside on the valley terrace and living area with a glass window on the valley, a double sofa bed (cm143x178) and access to the large outdoor terrace with a specific WiFi area, present everywhere. Note that the living room is not separate but open on the bedroom where a double bed (cm160x195) and a wardrobe are. Access to a covered terrace and the private garden between olive trees and officinal plants. A bathroom with a shower and an old sink and a laundry room is equipped with washing machine and iron. The cottage is air conditioned in every room; in the field there is a sunny / stargazing area where you can relax in peace and privacy. An old liberty bed can be used as a sunbathing bed or lying in the night under a bright sky of stars, away from any kind of pollution. More
