Large Tuscany Farmhouse Near Restaurant - Podere Il Frantoio
If you’ve ever dreamed about spending the holidays in Tuscany on a farm with a working wine and olive oil estate, then this farmhouse with a private pool in Tuscany is the place for you! Secluded and located high the hills, this vacation accommodation, which is comprised of various apartments, offers wonderful views as well as the opportunity to wine and oil taste from your own home-away-from-home with your friends and family. Trips into Florence are convenient by car or by train, which you can take from the nearby town of Rufina.
(700 hectares) This working 18th century farm encompasses 700 hectares of vineyards, olive groves, orchards, woods, and a game hunting reserve. Three of the estate's original buildings have been restored and converted into rental accommodations. This wonderful farmhouse, completely renovated in 1997, is a typical stone farmhouse dating back to the beginning of the century. The villa rental features terracotta floors, rustic furnishings, and colorful fabrics. There is a fenced garden with a barbecue, outdoor furniture, and a swimming pool (8 m x 4 m). The garden is accessible via the first floor at the rear of the house and is surrounded by olive trees and beautiful views of the Valdisieve. There is complete privacy since there are no houses nearby. There is a small restaurant on the estate available to people staying there.

Excellent. The villa and the grounds were beautifully maintained. The rooms were spacious and nicely appointed. Three separate living areas allow for lots of privacy no matter how large your group.
The five newly-refurbished bathrooms were a big hit with our American group. Also, having so many bedroom choices, each with a different layout and bed configuration, allowed everyone to have a room that suited their needs.
Along with the gorgeous views, it was very convenient to have a market and train station in Rufina only a 12-minute drive away. The on-property restaurant was a real treat - excellent food and wonderful Chianti (produced on the estate!) at very good prices. Stongly recommend taking the estate wine tour/tasting they offer.

This property is beautiful and perfectly fitted out group of 15.
The layout of the rooms, the beautiful furnishings, the newly-remodeled bathrooms, the pool, the fabulous panoramic views and the excellent staff and restaurant. This place is exactly what I'd hoped it would be.
The views, the winery, the close proximity to Florence, Pisa, Siena, Luca, Assisi and Valambrossa's fabulous, shady old pine forest and retreat.
