A beautiful stay in Tuscany
We stayed 15 days at I Glicini and had a marvellous experience. The property is located in an idyllic setting amongst vineyards and olive trees about 3 km from Tavernalle where there are many excellent restaurants and shops for essentials. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was spacious for 4 people with a lovely kitchen and private patio. Roberto and Lucia were wonderful hosts and took very good care of us. We highly recommend I Glicini.
Peaceful and pleasant
The apartment is located in a beautiful setting, picturesque Tuscany, yet a short drive to Florence. The owners were very helpful. The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment was perfect for 2 couples. Would recommend this whole heartedly.
A Gem in Tuscany!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at I Glicini! Robert and Lucia were both warm, welcoming, helpful and generous. There was a nice bottle of local Chianti to welcome us and later Roberto brought us a bottle of their very own olive oil. Both of which were delicious!
This gem in Tuscany is only 2 km from Tavarnelle where there are restaurants and a Coop for groceries. The town has a great outdoor market on Tuesdays.
The unit we stayed in was immaculate, comfortable and very well equipped. I have asthma and was concerned that the unit is not "non-smoking". I emailed the owners with this concern and they replied to me almost immediately that they ask smokers to do so outside. I am very sensitive to the smell of smoke and found absolutely no hint of smoke in the unit.
The pool was closed, which we expected as we were there in October, but I am sure it would be wonderful during the summer months. Instead, we enjoyed wine and cheese on the patio with an amazing view of the vineyards below. Being in the heart of Chianti, we were able to do day trips to the many towns in the area: Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Greve, San Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa and many more.
I would highly recommend I Glicini for your next visit to Italy.
Wonderful Tuscan Retreat
This property near Tarvanelle was the perfect spot for our family stay in Tuscany. The location was ideal within easy reach of everything Tuscany has to offer. It was less than an hours drive to Florence, Siena, Pisa, and many of the walled cities in the area. The town of Tarvanelle, just a few minutes away, offered many delicious restaurants, gelato shops, 3 markets, and more.
The villa itself was lovely. We stayed in the 2 bedroom/2 bathroom villa. It was very spacious. The gardens and views surrounding the villa were phenomenal. The mattresses in both bedrooms were a bit firm for our liking, but it was otherwise a very comfortable space for our family of 4.
The villa owners, Lucia & Roberto, we so great to work with. They gave us a tour of the property upon arrival, suggestions with maps to local restaurants and points of interests, and were available at any time during our stay if we needed it.
I would highly recommend this property and hope to return someday soon!
Beautiful, relaxing 😎 place to stay
We loved our stay at I Glicini. Lucia and Roberto were lovely hosts, friendly and welcoming. Lucia speaks very good English and she gave us lots of information about what to see in the surrounding area. Roberto keeps the pool immaculately clean and the grounds are well kept. The property is gated and the parking area is in the shade, very nice in hot weather. The apartment was spacious and very clean and the kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans and dishes. The Co-op grocery store in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa has everything you need.
I would definitely recommend this property as a wonderful place to stay in the countryside.
Beautiful views of Tuscany landscape but secluded for relaxation
Our house is located in a beautiful hillside location halfway between Florence and Siena. The house can be reached in approximately 40 minutes from Florence Airport and a bit more than one hour from Pisa Airport. By car it is 25 Km far from the exit Firenze-Impruneta on the A1-highway and about 30 Km from Siena.
Once there, you can easily reach, in addition to the already mentioned Florence and Siena, all of the most important cultural and artistic cities of Tuscany such as San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa, Lucca and Arezzo. You can also visit several towns and villages of Chianti area, probably less famous but equally beautiful and inspiring.
I Glicini is the perfect home both if you are looking for an holiday about art and culture, or simply if you want to relax in our garden, in a family-friendly place, meanwhile you are drinking a glass of Chianti.
We will be happy to give you all information to travel in the most beautiful villages and, if you like, to experience a unique wine tasting in one of the small family farms of high quality, or in the famous wine cellars 'Antinori nel Chianti Classico' just 10 minutes from our house.
Food lovers will find a wide selection of excellent restaurants, from the typical “trattoria” up to two restaurants Michelin-star awarded within 10 Km from our house.
