The House In The Wood On Florence Hill!


Property Details

Updated: Mar 11, 2016
2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

We are a family-loving country and we live here for many years. We love animals (we are vets!) and we have 2 dogs and 1 cat. Our house is in the Scandicci hills, through the woods of Roveta, 15km from Florence. The apartment that we have made available to guests is 120 m2 and has a nice spacious kitchen with large refrigerator for guests. The living room and dining room are spacious and comfortable.There are two bedrooms: one twin and one double. The twin bedroom has ensuite bathroom and the double has the bath relevance outside. The house is furnished with family pieces, simple but classic. Outside there is a garden with sitting area and a dining table.

We live upstairs with two children and dogs. In a small part of the house lives a young couple of friends.

Next to our house there is another house: there are two very quiet and very special neighbors! One is the principal violist of the Maggio Musicale of Florence and the other is a famous and renowned chef that organizes cooking classes and dinners delicious!

About the Owner

I'm a veterinarian and I'm married with a horse veterinarian! I have 2 young boys and some animals: 3 dogs , a cat, two funny chickens.

I live in the apartment on the 1st floor , in the same house . I grew up in Florence but since I got married, I came in this country house where I'm very happy!

The house has been of my family since the 1970 and I have many memories in it.

We are a very sportive family: we go running in the wood, we do mountain bike, and play ping pong.

Wunderschön gelegen Villa in den Bergen

  • 5 of 5

Etwas abseits der Stadt Scandicci in den Bergen gelegen. Die letzten 500m zum Haus etwas abenteuerliche Wege, dennoch gut machbar. Liebevoll eingerichtete sehr große Wohnung mit allem was man braucht . Sehr freundliche und immer bemühte Eigentümer sind immer erreichbar und kümmern sich sofort um alles . Die Lage des Hauses ist verkehrstechnisch sehr gut gelegen, da man in alle Richtungen innerhalb weniger Minuten die Anschlussstellen der Autobahnen oder Landstraßen erreichen kann . Mit der Tramvia kann man günstig nach Florenz fahren . Von den jeweiligen Endhaltestellen sind es ca. 20 Minuten einfache Fahrt und kosten pro Person 1,20€.

Vom Haus fährt man ca 20 Minuten zur Haltestelle die gut ausgeschildert ist. In Scandicci sind ausreichend Einkaufsmöglichkeiten für den täglichen Bedarf . Die Fahrt vom Haus dauert auch ca 15 Minuten in die Innenstadt .

Wir waren insgesamt 11 Tage im Haus und hatten durch die ruhige Lage und dem tollen Garten die Möglichkeit uns wunderbar zu erholen .

From the Owner

This property was passed down through the generations and now I try to keep it as well as I can. I think it has a very nice location: in the wood, in the nature but at only 15 minutes from the town . Also: it is in a hunting reserve it, is only 15 km from Florence and is in a strategic position to easily reach the airport , the A1 , A11 , the expressway Florence- Pisa and the tramway . A 15- minute drive from major shopping malls and the new industrial zone of Scandicci . Even the Firenze -Siena is easily reached in about 15 minutes going from Cerbaia and climbing towards San Casciano Val di Pesa . The apartment , part of a country house , is also at the center of a major hub of renowned trails for mountain bikers and trekking . The host makes available bicycles to cross these beautiful woods ! 1 km , to the delight of children , there is the opportunity to visit the petting zoo and fine local produce as well as the cuisine of the place .On request , there is also the possibility to follow a cooking class with a great chef ! From the garden , in winter , you can see the snow-capped mountains of Pistoia .

From the Owner

I falled in love with the view of the mountains and hills. I love to see the falcons in the sky and in the evening to meet the hares that run in the wood.
