A lovely apartment in a country house with a large, covered terrace and enclosed garden. There are wood floors, large windows overlooking the garden and a wood-burning stove. This is both a peaceful retreat and a great base for exploring Florence.

The space

Sleeps 6 in two bedrooms, one double and one with bunk beds. There is a large living-area with a well-equipped kitchen, a TV/DVD player plus sofa and armchairs, and a dining table to seat 6 with another outside. The bathroom has an over-bath shower, basin, toilet and bidet. There are plenty of books and DVDs in italian and other languages that you're welcome to use. For children there are books, toys and DVDs inside, and a paddling pool and playhouse in the garden. As well as the wood-burning stove inside, there's an outside wood-fired oven. I'm an artist, and my paintings and ceramics decorate much of the house.

Guest access

Besides the apartment, you have your own 1500 sq m private, enclosed garden - with organic fruit trees that you're welcome to help yourself from. On the terrace is a large table and chairs for leisurely outdoors eating, and two hammocks are slung in the shade of lime trees for afternoon siestas! My family and I occasionally use the lower part of the house, in which case the garden will be shared, but the two apartments and their entrances remain completely separate.

Interaction with guests

We will leave you in peace if you prefer, but if you'd like a spectacular breakfast, lunch or dinner, made with local produce - or even a lesson in Tuscan cooking or Italian conversation - we'll be delighted to provide any of these extra services!

Benedetta couldn't be a more gracious host. She welcomed us with open arms and was available for all our questions. She gives you your privacy but also makes for a great partner in conversation. The house is fully equipped and quite gorgeous, the area astoundingly beautiful. Ten out of ten.

We were made most welcome. We were met upon arrival by the host Benedetta, who showed us around the property and its facilities. The location is wonderful and the property rustic,just what we wanted. it was ideal and superbly located for Florence and Mugello race circuit and the surrounding area. Benedetta's directions were spot on and we drove straight there. The weather made it perfect. We would certainly go back.

We had a lovely stay at Benedetta's place. The house was very comfortable and the garden was great for our 1,5 year old son. It's so big! The surroundings are just magnificent, one could spend weeks just discovering the area. Benedetta went out of her way to make sure everything was taken care of and her parents were also very helpfull. The place isn't far from Florence (take the train!) and the small town of Borgo san Lorenzo is also worth a visit. We might just come back....

When we arrived we were welcomed by the family, who showed us the house. The house and the garden are actually even better than can be seen on the photographs! It is a beautiful place, decorated with good taste. Lots of toys and dvds for kids, everything you might need is there. The best part however is the garden: a wonderful porch with lots of seating, 2 hammocks, trampoline and a yard full of fruit trees. Plus a view :) On top of this Benedetta is a lovely woman who likes to help you with everything and give you tips for the best places to go. We definitely recommend going here!

Bellissima casa, pulita e facile da raggiungere! Vicina al circuito del Mugello, comoda pertanto per chi deve recarsi in pista. La casa è immersa nel verde, in una pace assoluta. Ambiente rilassante. Consiglio vivamente la casa di Benedetta e spero di tornarci l'anno prossimo. Perfetta la comunicazione!

Wir haben drei wundervolle Tage in Benedettas Haus verbracht. Benedetta und ihre Familie haben uns gleich warmherzig empfangen und uns alles wichtige gezeigt. Die Wohnung ist wunderschön und der Garten einfach nur großartig. Wir waren im Herbst dort und der Ofen hat uns richtig gut gewärmt, was für mich als eher leicht frierende Person sehr wichtig war. Unsere beiden Mädchen (6 und 3 Jahre alt) durften mit den im Haus vorhandenen Spielsachen spielen (bei Regen sehr hilfreich) und haben es geliebt, im Garten zu spielen. Unser Hund konnte im Garten toben, ohne dass wir Angst haben mussten, dass er auf die Straße rennt. Auch die Umgebung ist wunderschön, alles ist gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Florenz ist ca. eine 1/2 Stunde weit weg, aber auch die kleineren Orte der Gegend sind schön. Herzlichen Dank, Benedetta, wir kommen gerne wieder.
