La Sassolina, Montaione - Florence

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 people Private Pool 4 - Very good - Very good 4

Once a schoolhouse, La Sassolina has been thoughtfully converted into charming classic accommodation. The property is suitable for a range of guests, from a multi-generation family to a group of friends, but will be especially popular with young families, who will love its ground-floor aspect and the fact that the private pool has a special shallow end that little kids can splash about in. Located in the hamlet of Iano, La Sassolina is perfect for those seeking to simply enjoy local life. The village has a grocery shop, restaurant and bar, while the town of Montaione, with its churches and adjacent castles, is just a short drive away. The property is also ideal for day trips to Pisa, Siena and the wider Chianti region.

While the villa is based on the ground floor, a small elevated reading room creates a mezzanine effect above the spacious living areas (a gate will stop little ones advancing up the stairs). La Sassolina is furnished luxuriously with antique pieces and the bedrooms in particular have an opulent feel, including iron-framed beds and decorative wall flourishes. There may be some debate about who gets the dramatic four-poster but there is some consolation for those losing out, because several bedrooms offer views across the countryside. Outside, the furnished terrace offers a shady place to lounge and dine, perhaps from the nearby barbecue, or you may prefer the romantic gazebo by the pool during the day (close to which is a table football table that will divert restless children while you linger over lunch).

Our Thoughts
This luxurious, spacious and well-equipped villa locates you in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms at either end of the property, the design makes it ideal for a group or two families holidaying together. The terraces are perfect for al fresco dining and provide ample room for children to play under light supervision. The diminutive but charming elevated reading room with its exposed beams provides a serene bolt-hole where you can truly switch off from the modern world.

Four bedrooms. Four bathrooms. Pets are not welcome during high season. Air-conditioning and heating are charged by consumption, please contact your agent when booking for more information.

The large pool is at the rear of the villa, up a short flight of steps, and is bounded on two sides by hedges, with views towards Volterra on one side. There is a separate adjacent shallow pool for young children.  The pool area has two paved terraces, one set with sun loungers and parasols and the other dominated by a gazebo furnished with a table and chairs. The main pool is entered via internal steps and the shallow pool by metal ladder steps. The pool area is fenced and has an entry gate but it is not child or pet secure.
Pool size: Main pool - 9m x 5m, 1.2m deep. Childrens pool - 60cm deep. Open from mid April through October, weather permitting.

We really enjoyed our stay at La Sassolina, we were impressed with the security of the property especially with a 2 year old roaming around the grounds, The owners were really friendly and helpful and always available as they live close by. We would definitely recommend families with young children to stay at La Sassolina.
