Antico Casale is a pretty country house, set in a quiet location just a few kilometres from the centre of Florence. Comfortably accommodating up to four guests, it's a great option for those keen to explore the city whilst still being able to escape the hustle and bustle of city life at the end of the day.
The property has been completely restored and renovated by the current owners and furnished to a high standard with all the modern day essentials that holidaymakers look for. On the ground floor, there is a living room and large fully equipped kitchen. Doors lead from here to a wrought iron pergola, the ideal spot for an evening aperitif or an evening meal. There is also a bathroom with WC and washbasin on this floor. Upstairs, there is a master bedroom with bathroom and private terrace, enjoying views stretching across the Ema Valley and Chianti vineyards. Further stairs lead to an attic room with double bedroom, comfortable sofa and beautiful beamed ceilings. A window within the roof gives the room a really romantic feel, with guests able to gaze up at the stars as they lie in bed at night.
Outside, guests have a large garden to enjoy, laid out over several levels and fully fenced. The large swimming pool (12m x 5m) is for the guests exclusive use. Loungers surround the pool, perfect for lazy days in the sun. For those needing to escape the sun in the hottest hours of the day, there is a covered pergola with comfortable seating. Also on offer for the guests enjoyment is a table football table and table tennis table. There is a BBQ for those who like to cook outdoors.
