Casa al Ponte is a large villa located near the ancient town of Figline Valdarno which is in the centre of a triangle formed by the cities of Florence, Siena and Arezzo. The town's historic area has a medieval piazza surrounded by buildings of importance which house fine works of art. Florence is approximately 30km away and both Siena and Arezzo are within easy reach.

The swimming pool is located a few metres from the villa in the beautiful well maintained gardens. It has a paved surround with sun loungers, planted pots and mature trees which provide shade during the heat of the day. From here there are spectacular views over vineyards and rolling countryside to the Valdarno and Pratomagno hills in the distance.

Continuing on ahead is the dining room which has an oval dining table and chairs, to one side is a wooden dresser and in the corner an open fireplace.

To the right of the lounge, steps lead up to a utility room with washing machine and internal access to the covered loggia, this has a door out to the garden near to the pool.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, each one of which is individually, tastefully furnished. On the right is a large bedroom with a double bed with painted scrollwork bed frame.

Stay: August 2013
Pros Spacious, typically Tuscan, very clean, lovely garden and pool. Good location with easy access to Florence (by road and train), Sienna and the Chianti region.
Bedrooms and bathrooms beautiful.
Views fantastic.
Utility room, barbecue, plenty of seating and sun beds.
Cons Mosquitos and horse flies bit us to death... More plug-in repellants needed. Bring repellant spray (we were there late August). No information pack in the villa. No Internet (which was actually a plus!). Couple of fans would be nice.
Local attractions We enjoyed the agritourist olive oil producers San Leo up the road, Patrizia did cookery days and Olive Oil tasting with lovely meals. We enjoyed meals at the Villa Borghetta. We loved Greve's Saturday Market. The Coop in Filgini is the best supermarket to visit but there is a convenient close-by shop and cash machine at the holiday campsite nearby (with all the flags outside).

Pros Casa al Ponte is ideally located - only half an hour by car to Florence and only 20 minutes to Greve in Chianti / Strada in Chianti. We also enjoyed a day trip to Arrezzo (approx. 56 km). The house was very clean, spacious and our 4 kids (2-10 years) enjoyed the days at the pool and playing in the garden. The kitchen is small but there were enough dishes for our group of 9 people. We also enjoyed having a BBQ grill in the garden. The staff at Hotel Villa La Borghetta (key holder) was very helpful and came to our assistance whenever needed. We really enjoyed our week-long stay at Casa al Ponte and only wished we could have stayed longer.
Cons n/a
Local attractions Luckily we found the great San Leo - Agriturismo only 1 minute up the street from Casa al Ponte. The cusine was excellent (to say the least) and the owners went out of their way to accommodate our family. They were most friendly and produce one of the best olive oils and honey we have had in a long time.

Pros Die Lage ist ein Traum, der Ausblick überwältigend. Durch die zentrale Lage in der Toskana lassen sich Städte wie Florenz, Siena, Lucca oder Pisa super erreichen. Der Internetauftritt von Casa al Ponte hält was er verspricht!

Pros La situation de la maison, la vue dégagée et l'agréable jardin fleuri.
Cons Le bruit des voisins qui sont bel et bien dans le même bâtiment. La moisissure dans les douches, la maison est très froide à l'intérieur et impossible d'avoir du chauffage mise à part un petit chauffage additionnel électrique, pas évident avec deux enfants en bas age. Le fait qu'il n'y ai aucuns contrôle quand aux équipements; à notre arrivée nous avons dû aller à l’hôtel du propriétaire car nous avions trois tasses pour 6 personnes, même soucis avec les bols, les casseroles sont également dans un état déplorable, personne n’oserait faire à manger avec certaines d'entre elles. Piscine glaciale. D'autre part, une lettre informative devrait être disponible à la maison, aucunes info quand à la sortie des poubelles, mise en route du chauffage, ouverture du gaz de la cuisinière...
