We are about 30 minutes by car from the city center of Florence. If your intentions are to see the sights in the city, I would recommend taking the direct train from Figline Valdarno to the center of Florence. It is a 16 minute train ride and then you don't have to worry about parking in the center which can be problematic. The Figline train station is 7 minutes from our house. Figline Valdarno also has a nice central square with all types of shops from ice cream / bar / Benneton, etc. And on Tuesday mornings has a market in the center. If you have plans to shop, we are located about 15 minutes away from 'The Mall', 'Groove' and 'Fashion Valley' outlet centers located in Leccio. These are the high fashion outlet shopping centers with all the famous brands of Italian fashion, Ferragamo, Gucci, Burberry, Sergio Rossi, Trussardi, D&G, Nike, Hugo Boss, Prada, Mont Blanc, just to name a few. Our town of Reggello, 3 km away, also has a nice center with small shops, ice cream, bars, restaurants, and the weekly market is Saturday mornings.
Check in is at 3pm and checkout is at 11am, but these are rather flexible. This is a small, family run business, not a large hotel with rigid rules. I'll try to accommodate any requests you have.
It has been my experience that when guests rent apartments with a kitchen, they tend to prepare many of their meals themselves. That said, if you'd like to have some or all breakfasts included during your stay, we can arrange that too . Normal breakfasts include homemade muffins, freshly baked croissants, yoghurt, cereal, juices, milk, tea, coffee, etc. We can also prepare lunch and dinner by reservation when the chef is available. There is a patio off the apartment with a gazebo for dining outside and a grill available for guests to use also.
Pool opening 2017- May 1
If more questions cross your mind, don't hesitate to drop me a message.
No glassware or bottles in the pool area for the safety of all guests. Please use the plastic glassware provided in the apartment.
I am a self motivated, carefree individual. I'm 43 years old, married, with 3 children, living in Italy for the last 14 years. I served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from September 1991- September 1999. We've just finished remodeling and old Tuscan farmhouse into an agriturismo (B&B). We take pride in our property and are responsive to any of our renters needs. Since we live on the premises, we deal with our guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. Both of our apartments are fully furnished and have all the amenities of home! We hope you will enjoy your stay in Tuscany with us!!
