The highlights of the house are the view and its location. It is located at 500m asl on the slopes of the beautiful Pratomagno mountain, with an incredible view over the Valdarno valley, up to the nearest Chianti mounts. The place is immersed in nature, very quiet and peaceful, but at the same time the nearest town Castelfranco di Sopra is just at 4km, a 5 minutes drive: there you can find quite everything, a small supermarket, cafes, food shops, a self-service laundry, newspapers, banks with ATM cash withdrawal. In a 10 minutes drive you can reach the "Valdarno" A1 motorway exit, and go towards Florence or Arezzo very easily.
The nearest airports are Florence (FLR) 70km and Pisa (PSA) 130km. Lots of excellent restaurants in a 10km radius, visits to local winemakers and organic farms. Please feel free to ask for more informations!
