The house is a former hayloft that was refurbished brick after brick in perfect tuscan style by my father.
It features a private garden equipped with sun loungers and shaded by a walnut tree with a breathtaking view over the Chianti hills. A stone made barbecue is located in a panoramic corner and can be used by guests. Free internet access is available.
The accommodation has 2 floors. The upper floor spaces 2 double bedrooms with wonderful views of the olive trees and a bathroom with window and large masonry shower. On the ground floor a cozy and spacious living area with fireplace and a kitchenette with gas stove a large fridge and oven. The barn has ceilings with exposed beams and bricks.
Outside there is a panoramic garden set on its own where, in the shade of a walnut trees, you can relax on a hammock or grill your meal (included an authentic local Fiorentina steak :-) on the stone made barbecue. A garden table is there for romantic dinners 'al fresco'.
Immersed in total peace and tranquility halfway between Florence, Arezzo and Siena the barn is a perfect homebase to visit Tuscany.
