Casa Maddalena is a beautifully restored five bedroom, three bathroom country house with a great deal of warmth and charm. In addition to the bathrooms, there is a toilet situated on the ground floor. Secluded from its sole neighbour its setting affords great views across the Valdarno valley that stretches from Florence to Rome with the Appenini mountains as a dramatic backdrop to the countryside location.

The flat landscape immediately surrounding the house are olive groves and vineyards, allowing plenty of space to wander and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the property's extensive grounds. The hills above are graced by the old pilgrims trail lined with seven antique hamlets, topped by Vallombrosa locally known for a visit from the Queen of England. There is a 12 x 6 metre pool a few metres away from the villa.


Inside, the traditional beamed ceilings and terracotta floors are highlighted by lovely furnishings and walls painted in rich pastels. Entering through the front door the fully fitted kitchen to the left is equipped with oven, gas hobs, fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher.


Ahead four steps take you down to the living room which has a beautiful old fire place which can also be used for grilling meat in true Tuscan style. To the right is the dining room, because of the old stone walls of Casa Maddalena this room stays cool in the summer. It has a large dining table that seats twelve.


To the right there is a double bedroom, although this is the smallest of the bedrooms there is an impressive four-poster bed and it is a very comfortable bedroom with high quality soft furnishing. En suite to this room there is a small W.C.


From the front door stairs lead up to the landing, there is oak wood flooring throughout the upstairs apart from the bathrooms. Ahead is the main bathroom, a bright room decorated with hand painted terracotta tiles, there is a full size bath tub which includes a whirl pool and a shower fitting.



To the left there are two bedrooms a twin and a triple. Both bedrooms are spacious with tasteful furnishing and ample wardrobe space. The triple bedroom has a double bed and a single bed.


To the right there are another two bedrooms a twin and a triple. Similar to the other two upstairs bedrooms, both bedrooms are spacious with tasteful furnishing and ample wardrobe space. The triple bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower.



The double doors from the lounge area lead out to a large terrace furnished both with tables and chairs for al fresco meals and comfortable loungers for afternoons in the sunshine.




The villa is tastefully decorated and has wooden floors throughout.



There are good views from the gardens of Casa Maddalena

Pros Rustige ligging en mooi domein, met groot zwembad en voldoende ligstoelen. Huis is goed maar eerder basic (wat voor ons wel volstond).
Cons Keuken is eerder ondermaats en zwembad bevatte veel te veel chloor. Ook de ligging van het overdekte terras t.o.v. het zwembad is niet optimaal, maar dit is bijkomstig. Parasols aan het zwembad hadden ook van pas gekomen.
Local attractions Firenze en Siena zijn enorme troeven.

Pros The pool was good, the location fine and the facilities OK but not more than that.
Cons Having to drive a long way to pick up wifi plug and being charged 100 Euros deposit yet not being previously informed this would happen - and then having to drive all the way back with it on the day of departure. Wifi should be built into the price. It used up all our available cash at that moment and was very, very inconvenient. The kitchen hadn't been very well cleaned and overall the villa was a little tired looking. The instructions on how to get to the villa from Florence are inaccurate. For a party of 10 there were only 4 wine glasses and so we had to drink out of vaious tumblers. Overall the kitchen was quite poorly equipped.
Local attractions Florence and Sienna. We didn't use the local restaurants.

Pros La piscine est très agréable avec un grand jardin pour les enfants.
Situation géographique idéale pour visiter la Toscane et le Chianti.
Le changement des draps à la moitié du séjour.
Cons La maison est située dans un tournant à angle droit; quelques automobilistes signalent leur présence par un coup de klaxon parfois tôt le matin.
Local attractions Restaurant: Lagi de la tranquilita à Viaggio.

Pros La piscine est très grande et sa forme en diamant permet à tous de s'amuser. Le jardin avec les oliviers est bien entretenu et très agréable. La villa est spacieuse et bien située pour visiter les sites touristiques (Sienne, Florence, Pise). Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans un cadre reposant.
Cons La cuisine est un peu défraîchie et le réfrigérateur ne faisait pas assez de froid. Nous n'avons pas pu utiliser le four car Il n'y avait aucun plat allant au four. Petits détails : Il manquait également les coussins sur les chaises en fer forgé (sur la terrasse couverte) et des pinces à linge.
Local attractions Visite de Sienne et Florence Nous avons dégusté des produits locaux au restaurant Il Crocicchio de Regello. C'était parfait !

Pros Een goed geoutilleerd huis voorzien van alle gemakken. Het huis is gezellig ingericht en zowel binnen als buiten kun je met plezier zitten. Linnengoed was schoon/niet verwassen en in ruime mate aanwezig. Goede locatie, want Florence, Arezzo en andere interessante plaatsen liggen in de omgeving.
Cons Niets.
Local attractions Leuke restaurant op het plein van Figline valdarno. Prima bediening en hebben geen moeite met een familie van 10 personen waaronder 4 kleine kinderen.

Pros This property was good value for money and lots of space available and a great pool. The bedrooms were a good size and the outside space was excellent.
Cons There was no air-conditioning in the bedrooms and no fans provided anywhere in the house (we purchased these outselves!) The location of the property was adequate and you had to travel to find places to eat out in the evening. The actual property could do with some tlc and the kitchen needs re-doing. Small things like there were no wine glasses etc which you would expect.
Local attractions Guz (0.5 mile drive) - restaurant. Florence close by and Siena is just over an hour.

Pros Gezellig huis. Leuk ingericht.
Cons Keukens was niet schoon. Stoelen buiten waren verroest. Te weinig stoelen bij het zwembad. Toen het erg koud was mocht van de eigenaar de verwarming niet aan Volgens hem is er in Italie een wet dat je na 1 mei de verwarming niet aan mag doen.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The area was beautiful in particular the walks and the drives through the mountains.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accommondation was as described but difficult to find. Particularly disappointing was the support when we got there - there was no English speaking contact which made it very difficult. There was no information pack about how to find the heating, or instructions about how to use the washing machine etc which meant a lot of time was spent trying to sort it all out.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? See above
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? The villa was great but there seem a lack of attention to detail which put a slight dampener on the holiday.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs?
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Es war alles perfekt und genauso schön, wie wir es uns erträumt hatten! (Der eine oder andere Liegestuhl mehr wäre komfortabel gewesen, aber...)
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Tausende von sehr stechfreudigen Mücken, auf die mein Sohn anfangs allergisch reagierte- mit den handelsüblichen "Gift-Steckern" hatte man aber zumindest nachts seine Ruhe!
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen?
