Nonno Tonio is a lovely villa with a superb view of the Chianti Classico landscape covered with olive trees, woods and vineyards. The villa is situated six kms away from Mercatale Val di Pesa that is only fifteen minutes drive from Greve in Chianti, one of the main five Chianti towns. The position of this villa in the heart of Tuscany makes it convenient to explore the Chianti and also to visit the inspiring cities of Florence, thirty minutes away, Siena and Pisa both about one hour drive.

Nonno Tonio has a private hydro massage pool in the garden from where it is possible to admire superb views over the Tuscan countryside. The location is perfect to relax while having a hydro massage after a day of sightseeing. The hydromassage is for five people and it is set in a large fenced garden. The garden is equipped with umbrella, sun beds, a table with four chairs and a stone barbecue.

This pretty cottage has a typical covered loggia furnished with a wooden table with four chairs for dining al fresco. On one corner of the loggia there is a little table with three comfortable straw-bottomed chairs, the perfect spot to relax in the shade enjoying the view while drinking or reading.



The villa is entered from the loggia into the spacious dining area and kitchen. On one side of the room there is a fully equipped kitchen with gas hobs, oven, an electric kettle, microwave, fridge with freezer section and fireplace. On the other side there is a wooden table that sits six.



The dining room and kitchen are connected to the lounge through a large door. The lounge enjoys a beautiful view of the countryside thanks to the huge windows.



The living room is furnished with a sofa and two armchairs in front of the fireplace and one sofa bed close to a table with four chairs on the other side of the room. The lounge has direct access to the loggia.


Close to the kitchen there is a corridor and a bathroom with shower and a washing machine. From the corridor a staircase leads to the first floor where there are two bedrooms. One is a double bedroom and the other is a twin bedroom. In the double room there is a baby cot.



On the same floor there is a second bathroom with shower. Both the bedrooms have windows with views over the Tuscan landscape.



The villa enjoys complete privacy, the neighbours garden is fenced.
The views to the front stretch across farm fields, occasionally there maybe working vehicles here.




The double bedroom cannot be made into twin whilst the twin bedroom can be made into double on request. If you do not request it you will find it as described.

Pros Amazing private and secure location in beautiful Tuscan countryside. Very spacious and well equipped with quality fittings. The terraced gardens are large, well maintained, very private and have beautiful trees, shrubs, potted plants and lots of outdoor furniture for sitting or reclining. The patio is excellent for shade if its warm and shelter if it happens to rain. The spa is private and very well maintained. The outdoor lighting is generous, warm and provides a great atmosphere in the warm summer evenings. All windows have fly screens to keep out any bugs and provide a cool breeze in the evenings. The views by day and night over the countryside and to distant towns and villages are amazing. Paradise.
Local attractions We mostly cooked at the house and had lunches while visiting the numerous historical towns and villages and of course Florence and Sienna.

Pros l'emplacement : entre Sienne et Florence, pas loin de l'autoroute mais en pleine nature.

Vue extraordinaire sur les vignes,

la maison est bien équipée
Cons La maison est froide à cause des cheminées qui n'ont pas de trappe et le gaz très cher (une nuit de chauffage = 30 euros). C'était donc un peu juste pour la première quinzaine d'avril.
Local attractions les promenades à pied que l'on peut faire en sortant de la maison

The fire place is a working fireplace and available to use if necessary. It does have a protection to avoid smell, cold etc.. Heating costs can be high in Italy. The owner does not charge more than the consumption cost.

Pros Schitterende ligging. Geweldig uitzicht. Mooie goed onderhouden tuin.
Gezellig huis. Veel comfort en heel belangrijk : goede bedden!
Badkamers heel schoon en veel handdoeken. Douche een beetje klein en een beetje gammel. Keuken prima.
Bij aankomst zeer hartelijk welkom. In het huis de eerste behoeften aanwezig : wc papier, water(fles), brood,koffie, thee,boter enz.
Cons Geen WiFi . Kan echt niet meer in deze tijd! Een afwasmachine zou fijn zijn. Er is genoeg ruimte
Local attractions Ligging van het huis is goed centraal t.o.v. de te bezoeken steden zoals Florence,Sienna,San Gimignano,Sienna,Luca,Pisa. ( 30 min. tot 90 min met de auto). Je kunt even een ochtendje naar Florence. In de omgeving veel wijnhuizen. Ook best leuk en niet toeristisch San Casciano ( maandagochtend markt en goede supermarkt met zeer uitgebreid assortiment)( 15 min. met auto). Greve( 15min met auto) ook aardig maar naar onze smaak restaurants matig. Leuk restaurant dichtbij ( 5 min met auto ) Casa Mia.

Pros Die wunderschöne Lage, keine touristische Nachbarschaft. Sympatische Eigentümer, die bei Beanstandungen sofort zur Stelle sind.
Cons Die zusammengewürfelten Utensilien in der Küche. Die Enge des 2. Schlafraumes. Der Nachttisch erzwingt Verschieben des Bettes, um Schubladen im Schrank öffnen zu können. Wir empfehlen statt dessen ein Bord über den Betten. - Wir waren vor 15 Jahren schon einmal dort: das Mobilar war noch unverändert. Eine Auffrischung scheint uns erforderlich.
Local attractions Restaurant Il Bosco in Monteriggioni, Fleischerei (Wurstwaren und Schinken) in Greve.

Pros die traumhafte Lage des Hauses.
Wir waren zu Zweit im Haus - es ist aber sicherlich für 6 Personen ausreichend groß. Essplätze für 6 Personen gibt es auf der Terrasse, in der geräumigen Küche auch im Wohnraum. Es sind ausreichend Sonnenliegen vorhanden. Im überschaubaren, hübschen Garten spenden Olivenbäume Schatten und der Blick über das Chianti-Gebiet lässt einen abschalten und träumen. Eine sehr gepflegte liebevoll gestaltete Anlage. Wir können das Haus nur empfehlen und wie viele Andere auch kommen wir gerne wieder.

Die Vermieter sind ausgesprochen nett und zuvorkommend.
Cons der Jacuzzi ist in die Jahre gekommen, einige Düsen funktionieren nicht mehr. Auch könnte das Küchengeschirr, Besteck etc. erneuert werden - für die Urlaubszeit reicht es, was man zum Kochen braucht ist vorhanden.
Local attractions Ostaria Il Gallo Giallo - toskanische Küche Via Grevigiana, 50/A | Loc. Calcinaia, 50026 San Casciano in Val di Pesa, Italien ca. 6 km entfernt. Die Metzgerei direkt am Hauptplatz in Greve - unbedingt besuchen !!!

Pros Fantastic view! Very private. And we loved having the hot tub.
Cons The fact that I only found out about the additional ( expensive) heating cost from reading Trip Advisor prior to our vacation. Our 2nd week was very cold ( 4 degrees) which was unexpected. Also the furniture in the lounge could stand to be updated. They could also use a dryer.
Local attractions We enjoyed exploring the back roads. There are so many historical towns and the scenery was beautiful.

Die Vermieter sind sehr nett, zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit.
Cons Das Haus bzw. das Interieur des Hauses ist schon ein wenig in die Jahre gekommen. Schränke und Küche entsprachen nicht ganz meiner Vorstellung von Sauberkeit, aber der Rest war sauber.

comme nous étions un couple d'amis le fait qu'il y ait 2 salles d'eau pour préserver notre intimité était très important.
nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié le jacuzi , la fourniture des draps, serviettes de toilette et surtout le ménage final
Cons Nous avons tout aimé sauf peut être le manque d'informations écrites pour l'utilisation du téléviseur, du lave linge et le manque de lave vaisselle. Il manque aussi une cocotte minute et une "grande" cafetière électrique

What were the highlights of your holiday? THE BEAUTIFUL LOCATION AND VIEWS.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    THE ACCOMODATION WAS LOVELY EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED ON THE WEBSITE, MARIA ROSE THE KEY HOLDER WAS VERY HELPFUL AND SPOKE EXCELLENT ENGLISH. THE VILLA WAS A LOVELY SIZE AND THE GARDEN TOTALLY SECURE. THE ONLY RECOMMENDATION WE COULD MAKE WOULD BE THAT THE VILLA COULD BENEFIT FROM A GOOD TIDY OUT THERE WAS A LOT OF PERSONAL DUST COLLECTING NIK NAKS THAT ARE NOT REALLY NECESSARY. THE KITCHEN WAS ALSO A LITTLE BUSY AND ALTHOUGH THIS IS THE END OF THE SEASON COULD HAVE BEEN LESS GREASY.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? MOSQUITOES!!!!! WE WERE AWARE THERE WOULD BE SOME HOWEVER NOT PREPARED FOR QUITE SO MANY.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Es war wirklich alles perfekt, die Nachmittage im Garten, die Fahrten ans Meer und in zahlreiche toskanische Städte, die liebevolle Betreuung durch die Eigentümer.-.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Alles wunderbar - Nonno Tonio
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Nur die kaputten Moskitonetze - bei der schrecklichen Gelsenplage nicht sehr angenehm
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Wenn das Haus einen geschirrspüler hätte, wärs fein - wer mag schon im Urlaub abwaschen? Platz wäre ja genug. Werde fürs nächste Jahr sicher wieder auf die Site schauen, wir fahren jedes Jahr mit dem Hund in die Toscana----

What were the highlights of your holiday? Visiting all of the charming medieval towns and the exceptional warm welcome by the Italians. Food was wonderful.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accomodation at Nonno Tonio was very comfortable, and just as I expected from the photos. I was very pleased, and it suited our family well. The views and sunsets were spectacular, and we enjoyed eating outside in the loggio. The owners of Nonno Tonio were also very welcoming and helpful.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises?
Do you have any other comments?

What were the highlights of your holiday? The weather was fantastic throughout so we made full use of our jacuzzi located in the garden area. The major cities were beautiful, we visited Florence twice as we were only about 40 minutes drive away. We also enjoyed our visits to Pisa and Siena. The views from our loggia were stunning; we were located high up on a hillside overlooking the vineyards and olive trees and it was so tranquil and quiet.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    We were very pleased with our accommodation. The garden area in particular was extensive and split on two levels; we had stunning views across the Tuscan countryside. The loggia was traditional and comfortable and catered for all of our needs though a dishwasher would have been nice. The surrounding area was very peaceful and quiet though we felt safe and secure with our 3 children. The girls in particular loved the hot tub and the owners came out midweek to clean out the water. In fact, the owners were fantastic and couldn't have been more accommodating. We were given a lovely warm welcome upon our arrival and were told to contact them anytime if we needn't further assistance or advice.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? We were totally unaware and thus unprepared for the toll gates which we encountered as soon we entered the Autostrade enroute to Mercatale. None of the provided information packs gave any mention to this, nor any advice as to which gate you are supposed to pass through. Unfortunately for us we entered through a yellow "Telepass" gate (unbeknown to us we weren't supposed to pass through this one) and called for assistance from the gate operator. The gate operator raised the barrier and permitted us to enter the motorway without a valid ticket, hence the fine we received when leaving the Autostrade onwards to our destination.

Do you have any other comments? It would have been helpful to mention that the blue pay and display parking bays are really the only viable areas in which to park for visiting tourists in the major cities as we found that the white marked spaces tended to be reserved for residents only. This tended to cost 1 to 2 euros per hour to park your car. Park at the railway stations in Florence and Pisa. Its a bit of a walk away to the leaning tower in Pisa but we travelled with 3 children and they were fine walking to the tourist areas. I believe you can get a bus from the station to this area if you don't fancy the long walk!

What were the highlights of your holiday? Visiting the hilltop towns, enjoying the ambience of Nonno Tonio.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Excellent. Suited our needs perfectly. Owners were wonderful. Very welcoming and helpful. We needed assistance for a medical problem on Easter Sunday night. They came with a doctor, then drove us to hospital in Florence, stayed with us, drove us home. Could not have managed without them, and we can't thank them enough.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Yes, we thought our wives would do all the cooking.......but !
Do you have any other comments? Would use To-Tuscany again without hesitation, and will recommend to friends.

Thank you very much to Dympna and staff, and Linda in Australia

What were the highlights of your holiday? Relaxing at the villa and the open fire.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Nono Tonio was excellent. Liliana and Mariarosa were very friendly and helpful.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? We had a few blackouts due to a faulty circuit breaker but it was attended to promptly, being Easter made things more difficult, but again, Mariarosa was most attentive and helpful.
Do you have any other comments? Staying in a place where you're totally independent like Nono Tonio's is great, but having the owners at hand if need be is very reassuring.
