About this listing

Candida's place is located near San Casciano in Val di Pesa, between Florence and Siena, in the heart of Chianti and in one of the most beautiful region in Italy. This listing is for the MARTINA room within the small B&B (only 3 rooms)

The space

This is a world with a special magic, a place of rare beauty, with a calm and magic atmosphere, that will entangle you as soon as you step in, not to mention the beautiful garden during the springtime!
Candida, the owner of the house, with a degree in agriculture, a hat designer, painter and garden designer, will host you in her world which includes more than 300 varieties of old roses and all kinds of plants. The house is furnished with pieces collected in Europe, most of them on sale, particularly the ones for the garden.

There are 3 double bedrooms with private bathroom, available as B&B, at € 90,00 each (breakfast included), from November to March, and € 95,00 each (breakfast included) from April to October. Single travelers receive a 10 euro discount on daily room rate. The living room, the dining room and the garden are available for the guests.

Candida takes care of her guests' breakfast: fresh croissants and homemade jams and cakes in Candida's kitchen – and when the Tuscan sun shines (which is most of the time!) you will take your coffee in the garden.

She also organizes cooking classes, using olive oil, vegetables, herbs and the fruit form the garden and dinners can be booked in the same morning (€ 35 per person, wine NOT included).
The cooking classes are offered for minimum 2 people, for 70 euro per person and includes the dinner prepared together and house wine.

At guests' disposal there are, on request, tours to nearby areas: Candida will be happy to give you any touristic info you may need.

WI-FI available. Smoke is not allowed indoors.

We had a lovely stay at Candida's house. The view is absolutely breathtaking and the breakfast in the garden is full with everything we could have wished for. She is very quick to reply in her communication whenever you have a question and we can definitely recommend this to anyone who are thinking of living here.

Candida is the perfect host, and the Azienda is nothing short of stunning. Overlooking the gorgeous Tuscan landscape you'll find a quiet, beautiful, and friendly place to relax. On one night, we enjoyed a wonderful home cooked meal and we certainly wish we would have been able to spend more time to chat and exchange stories with Candida. My full recommendation in every aspect.

Candida has a very good taste to beautiful things, which are surrounding her and her house:) She was very sociable but still She left us a lot of private space. We felt very good and comfortable. Breakfast was fresh and tasty. I really recomend Candida's house to visit. I'm sure that everyone will appreciate this unique character of Candida's house:)

We can't say enough wonderful things about Candida and her lovely home! From her beautiful gardens, to the impeccable and intriguing elements of her home, to her friendly welcome, and her amazing breakfasts, we didn't want to leave. It was such a special place that I am sending my parents here when they visit Italy in the fall. Thanks again, Candida!!

Candida has done such a beautiful job of landscaping, which is highlighted by being able to sit within her sanctuary and look out over the gorgeous views of fields and hills. She and the staff are friendly, but not at all intrusive and the overall experience was wonderful.
