Beautifully furnished & well equipped, it shares a swimming pool with one other apartment & has its own terrace The Space: This beautiful 2 bedroom apartment occupies part of a 15th century villa. Set on top of a hill just outside Florence, it overlooks the Chianti region and is surrounded by 30 hectares of olive groves containing 6000 olive trees. The property is steeped in history. In Renaissance times, the property belonged to the Gherardini family, the family of the famous Mona Lisa, immortalized by Leonardo Da Vinci. For the past 200 years, the property has been in the Calamai family and the current owners, Eleanora and Marco, lovingly look after the property and tend the olive groves. The apartment enjoys an open plan living and dining area with sofa bed and chairs and a dining table seating 4 to 6. Double doors lead onto a terrace overlooking the inner garden filled with lemon trees and beautiful roses. There is outdoor furniture for al fresco dining. There are 2 bedrooms - 1 double bedroom with stunning chandalier and fireplace as well as 1 twin room. There are 2 bathrooms and a kitchen equipped with oven, gas hob, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer. Doors lead to an inner courtyard. Guest Access: Guests have sole use of the entire apartment. The swimming pool is shared with the guests of one other apartment. Interaction with Guests: There is a local point of contact should our guests need anything during their stay, otherwise we leave our guests to enjoy their stay in this stunning apartment in peace. The Neighborhood: Although surrounded by olive groves, this apartment is just 10km from Florence and as such is the perfect base from which to explore the city and the stunning local countryside. Other Things to Note: Whilst Marco looks after the groves, Eleanora offers guests the opportunity to share her passion for cooking, offering cookery courses. She can also arrange other excursions such as wine tasting at a local vineyard, a visit to a cheese producer or guided tours of the area. Eleanora will also be happy to cook for guests and, on request, guests have the opportunity to dine by candlelight in the wonderful frescoed salon of the villa. The property is in an absolutely idyllic setting only 10km from Florence with stunning views of the Tuscan countryside. Guests are welcome to wonder through the olive groves. They are also encouraged to help themselves to the wonderful home grown produce from the estate's fruit and vegetable patch. And for those times when you just want to relax, there is a swimming pool and beautiful gardens to enjoy. There is a final cleaning fee of 100 euros payable locally upon arrival. Otherwise, the rental rates are all inclusive and include linen and towels. House Rules: • No smoking • No pets • No parties or events • Check-in is anytime after 4PMMore
