  • Description

    Between Florence and Siena and close to Certaldo, Montespertoli and San Gimignano, Casa Apuane Alps is an elegant Tuscan farmhouse set in a beautiful garden enjoying a refreshing pool and stunning views over the rolling hills of this wonderful region. Beautifully decorated, the villa is provided with every comfort and designed with style and taste. Casa Apuane Alps is dramatically located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti region with expansive views over the olive groves, vineyards, woods and country estates.

    The villa accommodates eight guests in 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and features a spacious and bright living room, large dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, a fitness room, large pool overlooking the hills, and furnished patios to relax under the shade. In addition, the owner of the property produces Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which can be purchased on site.

    Spacious and private, Casa Apuane Alps is located only 5 km from Castelfiorentino, 7 km from Montespertoli, and 10 km from Certaldo, an ideal setting for a great vacation! The location couldn’t be better: private, tranquil position with fenced garden, the villa is 50 minutes (40 km) south from Florence with easy access to the charming Chianti hill towns, 60 minutes (58 km) from Siena and 1.30 hour (75 km) from Lucca. Well-appointed, spacious villa, authentically restored and surrounded by olive groves, Casa Apuane Alps is perfect for four couples traveling together, or a family of eight.

    A typically country road (1.8 km) leads to Casa Apuane Alps, meandering through vineyards and olive groves. Although a 4x4 car is not necessary, please be advised that this road is not suitable for cars with low clearance.

    *Please note: The original building dates back 1500 and is part of the Borgo di Voltiggiano (a group of about 10 properties) located in this area. For this reason the villa is not completely isolated, in fact, about 300 meters from the property is the owner's home.

A pool cover is available to keep the water warm during the night. (Important: the cover is not a safety cover for children.) The lawn is bordered with rose bushes, cypresses and olive trees. A large patio next to the pool provides shadow during hot days. Sun beds are available for 8 guests. Attached to the house there are two other patios, one furnished with table and chairs for al fresco dining and a second one, furnished with comfortable lounge chairs.

    AJ, USA

    We finally got here and it's absolutely stunning!!! We can not believe how beautiful it is here. I keep pinching myself. Egle and Claudia were so welcoming and we have put our troubles behind us and we are soaking up everything this place has to offer. Thank you so much for everything and for helping us make up our minds about staying here. It is truly spectacular!!!
