About this listing
This country farming estate, dating from the late 18th century, is set among vineyards in one of the most beautiful areas of the Chianti hills. The wonderful views and the vicinity to Florence make this a vacation dream house.
Marliano is a farming estate of 23 hectares in the Comune of Montespertoli, in the Florence region. It is set in the DOC Chianti Putto hills, surrounded by vines as far as the eye can see. The original country farmhouse probably dates back to the end of the 18th century. It is a completely independent three-floor house of about 250 square metres:
GROUND FLOOR: double living room, dining room, kitchen, and bathroom with laundry.
MEZZANINE FLOOR: a living room with fireplace overlooks the second level of the garden and a terrace with table for outdoor dining. The same room provides access to the upper floor where the bedrooms are located.
FIRST FLOOR: there are four bedrooms, two rooms with double bed, with separate bathroom, and two rooms with two single beds, each one with a washbasin alcove. On the same floor is a third bathroom with shower for the two bedrooms with single beds. Both double bed rooms overlook a terrace while the two single bed rooms are located on the other side of the house.
Around the house is a garden with mature trees and flowering shrubs carefully chosen among native Tuscan species. The house is set in the midst of the estate land and the private garden blends naturally with the surrounding countryside. Glorious views can be enjoyed from the house and the general panorama is breath-taking.
The estate is set in one of the most charming areas in the Chianti hills, while still being handy to main roads. The centre of Florence is only a 30/40 minute drive.
Leaving the Autostrada A1 freeway, exit at Firenze Signa and take the Firenze-Pisa-Livorno highway: after about 20 km in the direction of Pisa, exit at Montelupo Fiorentino and turn left immediately onto the tar sealed exit road that leads (6 km) to Botinaccio. Botinaccio is the village closest to the holiday house (about a 10-minute walk) where there is a delightful Benedictine convent and a local food shop that is always open. The larger towns in the vicinity are Montespertoli, Montelupo and Empoli, each of which is about 6-8 Km from “Marliano”. These towns have shopping centres and sports facilities (horse riding, tennis, swimming pool, golf), a hospital, cinema, and most other necessities. “Marliano” is also located in an excellent position for easy access to the great art cities in Tuscany. It is 25 km from Florence, 30 from S. Gimignano, 50 from Pisa, 60 from Siena, from Volterra, and from Monteriggioni .... An hour by car northward will take you to the beaches on the Versilia coast, and southward, to Castiglioncello, Punta Ala, etc... All these beach localities can be reached by rapid main highways like the Firenze-Pisa-Livorno, or by the very pleasant local highways through glorious Tuscan countryside.
Smoking is not permitted inside the house; however it is possible to smoke outside in the beautiful grounds available to guests.
NO EXTRA GUESTS (all guests staying must be registered)
