Antica Sosta, Castelfiorentino - Florence and Chianti

5 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 to 8 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

A staging post for passing travelers, set just off a road linking Florence to the hilltop town of Volterra. This villa provides a peaceful haven for a group of friends or a family get-together, while still being close to local amenities (the town Castelfiorentino is a short drive away). As well as wine- and olive oil-tastings, tennis and horse riding are on offer locally for the active members in your group. While others can linger over lunch on the terrace or soak up some sun by the private pool.

The two-storey villa, surrounded by tall hedges, overlooks a well-kept lawn and the pool. Inside, there is a rustic appeal to the airy rooms, with plenty of wooden beams and traditional terracotta tiles. The colourful décor – pretty lilac, peach and olive pastels – and the comfortable classic furnishings make the place feel plush, too.

Our Thoughts
Antica Sosta is so close to the local amenities yet provides guests with a great sense of tranquility, thanks to the well-kept gardens that surround it. Young visitors will be thrilled to discover the outdoor trampoline and table football. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom make it a good option for parties with guests who wish to avoid stairs.

Overall, a lovely holiday, we appreciated that the pool was cleaned every day and the villa was well maintained. However, we found the instructions for the daily re-cycling system complicated and confusing. A small point, we were a party of 9 and there were not enough mugs. The iron was leaking water near the cable so probably needs replacing. The nearest shop is a drive away, so visitors need to be well stocked with toilet rolls etc. If you are looking for peace and tranquillity this is quite a noisy area close to the road with neighbours and a lovely but noisy bar. At the end of the holiday we were presented with an unexpected cleaning bill of €140.00 which we paid and then had to be reimbursed as this was a mistake on the owners part. Thanks to To Tuscany for sorting this out so quickly. On the whole, we would happily travel with To Tuscany again, but would not visit this location or villa again.
