La Noce was completely renovated scant years ago. Its panoramic position captured our imagination to create a true home from home in the country style that we found so appealing. Situated in unspoiled countryside with stunning views of our own orchard, olive grove and vineyards (whose products can be bought in season) it commands views the likes of which could grace the pages of any photographers portfolio for postcards.that have been converted from the original stone built hay barn, part of the farmhouse and a medieval watchtower. Well appointed and equipped, the modern soft furnishings add comfort and beauty to the simple country styled interiors. Original features such as the heavy chestnut beams and old barn doors have been kept and are now quirkily used as headboards. Oak furniture has been restored and polished until it shines like the sun on the lake below.
Relax and unwind by the private pool surrounded by a large terrace and lawn, take walks or mountain bike rides through the splendid Tuscan scenery or take a horseback safari from a nearby stable for that authentic experience.
Londa 4km, is a charming pretty little village where all your basic essentials can be bought. Rufina 10km and Dicomano 6km offer a larger range of shops and Florence at 35km is the icing on an already rich cake of art, culture and history. We live in a separate villa next door, are happy to arrange guided tours to oil mills and Chianti cellars or cook a very good meal with Tuscan traditional food for you .
WiFi is provided and included in the rental price.
I'm Pietro, living in a beautiful village in the earth of Tuscany called Londa. I'm studying in Florence to be an architect and I love the place where I live as it is very reach of art. Our rural houses keep in each stone the history and the traditions of my land.
With my family we restored this ancient building (it was a hay loft born on the rest of a middle aged tower) bought by my father's grandfather and we transformed it in a very beautiful and comfortable home. We conserved all the Tuscan style and you can feel it entering our house. Linen is from our grand parents and furnitures too.
My family is felled in love with our property and for us it is every time a feast to meet our guests and show them our beautiful farm and the landscape around it. We are able to make you relaxed and, at the same time to let you know how to reach and visit the main Tuscan towns. Florence is only 40 minutes by train from us!
My mother is a very good cooker and sommelier so you can enjoy by us typical Tuscan meals or have a wine tasting.
