Valecchio, Pontassieve - Florence

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 6 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Valecchio is a spacious villa for six sharing, a super place to bring together friends or family for a memory-making holiday. Not only does it have a homely feel, it is also truly flexible, split between a main villa and a semi-detached apartment, so might just present the perfect solution if you’re travelling with grandparents or older children.
From the moment you step into the open-plan living area in the main lounge, with its herringbone-pattern terracotta tiles, beamed ceilings and exposed sections of stone wall, you will begin to appreciate the villa’s truly authentic Tuscan vibe.

The initial warm impression, created by the stone facade, which is part-painted in striking yellows and blues, is enhanced inside by the soft colours in the décor and the well-chosen antique-style furniture. The lounge is oriented to take in the rural views, with furniture positioned to overlook an utValecchioterly bucolic landscape, framed by a valley and mountains and enhanced by a babbling brook. Outside, the huge garden can feel like your own private nature reserve, with mature trees, shrubs and the enchanting remnants of an 11th-century mill. You can choose from two furnished terraces for dinner: one covered by a gazebo; another outside the attached apartment. Both have superlative views, as does the private pool. From here on the raised pool terrace, the scene is truly spectacular, a panorama of mighty wooded hills tumbling into the valley below.

Our Thoughts
Valecchio has a comfy, warm and welcoming feel. You will be charmed by stylish touches such as the exposed sections of stone and the antique bedstead with its padded headboard. The views of the Chianti countryside are simply stunning, even from the properties, thanks to generously-sized windows. We love the well-tended garden, too, with its mature cypress trees and outbuildings mantled in foliage. Should you wish to explore the countryside you will find the popular town of Rufina just a short drive away. But if you’re dining at home, feel free to top up your larder from the vegetables and fruit growing in the garden.

Three bedrooms, two bathrooms. The owner and two family members occupy both floors of the main house and have their own private entrance. The property is not fenced. A complementary welcome buffet is provided on arrival.  The property is approached by an unpaved road in good condition.

The pool is 80m away from the property but within the garden. It is entered by steps and handrail at either end; the owner and family will not use the pool while guests are staying. Poolside features include sun loungers, parasols and a small fridge. Pool size: 7m x 14m, 1.2-1.5m deep. Open May to September, weather permitting.

Valecchio was a wonderful villa to spend a week with our family and friends. The grounds and accommodation were splendid and Maria and her family were very hospitable. We were able to spend a couple of day trips in Firenze which was within an easy train trip. The road up to the villa took us a while to accustom to, but definitely worth it. Loved our experience. Thank you Maria, and family.
Local attractions The town of Rufina was nearby and had plenty of beautiful fresh supplies available from local suppliers. A real Tuscan experience.
