Entry to this large 1st floor apartment is from the front terracotta-tiled piazza, to the side of which is a pergola furnished for outdoor meals. The stairs lead up to the living area with comfortable sofas and a dining table for six and the nearby kitchen has both the modern convenience of a dishwasher yet the old-fashioned charm of a county fireplace handy for indoor grilling. The three bedrooms, which can be set up with twin or double beds on request, are all furnished with simple country antiques, have wonderful views from all windows and are but steps away from one of the two shower rooms or very large bathroom.
Sitting on this hil...ltop it is hard to believe that Florence, a Renaissance jewel and UNESCO treasure, is but 30 km. away. What you look out on are a natural palette of green and gold and the bell towers of nearby villages. And yet, a bus or train from nearby towns could have you in the heart of the city in 40 minutes, ready to explore its history and the art around every corner. Should you stay, however, there are horses nearby to take you on a slower exploration of the rolling countryside and the company of the silvery trees that surround you. The owners, by the way, produce wonderful olive oil from these trees - be sure to try some, and if you happen along at harvest time, join in and watch the transformation of laden tree to beautiful golden-green oil. What could be a better Tuscan experience.
