Villa Ginestra lies within the national park 'Parco di Cercina', in the superb hills around the inspiring city of Florence, only 8 kms from the villa. This pretty detached holiday home is positioned in the grounds of a larger property, which includes two other villas where the owners live. Parking is available to the back.


The swimming pool is just in front of the villa. It has a wooden deck around it and the view is stunning. It is completely private and fully equipped with sun beds and night-time illumination.


Villa Ginestra has a private entrance and a completely protected and very well-maintained garden that wraps all around it. There are paths to the pool, typical Mediterranean plants and a small natural pond.




The garden is furnished with a stone barbeque and a bench close to it.



A covered terrace, equipped with a wooden table and wooden benches that comfortably seat eight, rises in a dominant position. Here it is possible to dine al fresco enjoying the view.



From the garden and the pool the view dominates the entire valley that leads downhill through olive and cypress trees towards the old city centre of Florence: in fact, with clear weather, Florence is visible in the distance. There are also breathtaking sunsets from here.



Gelsomino is the additional little wooden cottage for two, just a few steps away from Villa Ginestra. This cottage is not rented separately from the villa.



It is a fully equipped cottage with air-conditioning, two single beds, a small bathroom with shower, a tiny kitchenette and a TV sat . From one of the two windows there is an open gorgeous view.It is ideal for teenagers or for a young couple.


In front of the wooden cottage there is a very private terrace with a table and two chairs completely immersed in olive groves and surrounded by beautiful landscapes. A bus stop to the centre of Florence is within easy walking distance of about 1 km from the villa. It is an urban bus to the centre of Florence. Driving to Florence it takes around fifteen minutes.



Villa Ginestra is a ground floor holiday home that enjoys on two sides access to the garden making the best of inside and outside living. The interior is furnished with high-quality pieces. Entering there is a large living room with a dining-area, a fireplace and a double sofa bed.



The lounge is equipped with satellite-TV and stereo with CD player. There is a large door leading to the garden and providing the room with a lot of light.


The large kitchen is up a couple of steps in a separate room but open to the lounge. It has a second working fireplace and it is fully equipped with a table that seats six, oven, gas hobs, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, microwave oven and a safe.




There are two double bedrooms that are one next to the other. Two bathrooms with showers are next to each bedroom.




Both bedrooms are tastefully furnished and airy with lots of light coming from the doors leading out. The two double bedrooms can not be made into twins.




Parking is available to the back.




The three bedrooms in the description include the one of the small cottage.

Pros This beautiful villa is in a perfect location high up in the hills, set amongst olive groves and with views of Florence in the distance. The owners are so kind and helpful, making sure that we had all we needed, even getting our groceries for us when they found we did not have a car. The pool was fabulous, particularly after a hot day in Florence. It is secluded, totally private and safe (no sudden deep dips!) A lovely place to relax and unwind.
Cons It would be helpful if the website stated that a car is recommended, even if it is just to drive up the steep hill to Montorsoli to catch the bus (No. 25 to La Pira) into Florence, and to get groceries. There is a small shop for essentials, attached to the Pizzeria in Montorsoli, but otherwise the nearest supermarket is 3 kms away in Pratolino. A bus timetable and route would be helpful, also, particularly as you need to catch the 25A on the way back or you are stranded a long walk from the villa. This is not a complaint, just a suggestion. The owners were so kind and helpful, getting our groceries for us, and arranging taxis into Florence.
Local attractions The Pizzeria, La Terrazze, up the hill in Montorsoli is a 15 minute steep walk from the villa. It is open from about 11am each day, except Wednesdays. Lovely views, good food and friendly owner. So much to see and do in Florence. Recommend a private tour of the Vasari Corridor.

Pros Wir waren trotz der Nähe des Eigentümers/Verwalters absolut für uns und hatten einen sehr erholsamen Urlaub in einem super schönen Haus, einem tollen Grundstück, tollem Pool, einer unglaublich schönen Aussicht, sogar WLAN im Haus und den netten Menschen Rada und Constantin, die sich um die Sauberkeit des Poos, die Gartenpflege und den Wäschewechsel/Reinigung des Hauses sehr rührend gekümmert haben - es aht uns hier an nichts gefehlt! Wir haben auch regelmäßig von Rada frische Feigen, Tomaten und Gurken aus dem Garten bekommen und durften uns u.a. aus dem üppigen Kräutergarten bedienen - diese Kräuter schmecken einfach noch besser, als bei uns!! Der Verwalter Paolo und sein Schwiegervater waren ebenfalls sehr freundlich und unkompliziert! Vermissen werden wir auch den schmusebedürftigen Kater der Familie und die beiden Golden Redriever, die zum Haupthaus gehören.
Cons Überhaupt nicht gibt es nicht bei diesem tollen Objekt! Als Verbesserungsvorschlag würden wir Fliegengitter an den Fenstern empfehlen und manchmal war die Straße etwas störend ( je nach Windrichtung ), allerdings war dies nur morgens ein Thema - tagsüber herrscht hier absolute Ruhe!
Local attractions Florenz und hier ganz besonders zu empfehlen ( wer Schuhe, Schmuck und Accessoires liebt! ) - Wilma Firenze an der Ponte Veccio, einfach tolle Sachen und eine sehr freundliche Inhaberin!! San Gimmignanao Lucca

Pros die hervorragende Lage mit grandioser Aussicht! Sehr nette und aufmerksame Vermieter; toller Garten, schöner Pool, sehr schöne toskanische Einrichtung, vollständig ausgestattete Küche
Cons Die Strasse führt direkt am Haus vorbei und ist morgens (ab 7.00 Uhr!) und abends stark befahren (Berufsverkehr), was besonders morgens stört. Da Haus verfügt über keine Fliegengitter, was bei der großen Menge an Schnaken sehr unangenehm ist.

Pros Die Lage, die Ruhe sowie der Pool (besonders für die Kinder). Auch die Herzlichkeit des Vermieters ist zu erwähnen - auch wenn wir ihn kaum verstanden haben. Trotz Temperaturen von 40 Grad in Florenz konnte man es in den Bergen bei einem angenehmen Wind sehr gut aushalten.
Und: Es gibt keine Uhr und man vergißt die Zeit.... !
Cons Die Villa war toll, wir hatten nur mit Mücken zu kämpfen und waren froh, Moskitonetze und Autan eingepackt zu haben.
Local attractions San Gimignano - aber in den Abendstunden!
