Our goal is to let the house during the majority of August, 2020

Chianti Cozy Chic

Traditional farmhouse in Chianti with commanding views of the Tuscan countryside. Sleeps six comfortably with three rooms total; one master bedroom on the ground floor with its own en-suite private bath. The two double bedrooms on the first floor where most of the day to day living takes place share a large bath.
The large open floor plan allows for kitchen, living and dining. This makes for a convivial area to enjoy. On the same level looking out over the countryside is a large 25 sq m terrace. In the nicer weather with the parasol open this becomes an extra room for all activities. Below, on the ground floor is a large patio with dining table, barbecue area and lounging space. Off the house is a large 5m diameter above-ground pool. Lots of hiking, tranquility, restaurants and A-list Chianti towns within short drive.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: peretola, Florence airport - 40 kms

La Buca sits atop a 600m hill overlooking east. The house is at the end of a dirt road. We have six-hectares of mostly woods and trails around the house. Vegetation ranges from olive trees, grape vines and regional plants.
The house enjoys privacy with very little in the way of interaction with others. One has to enjoy this aspect in order to appreciate the experience. There are plenty of picturesque towns, wine tasting vineyards, restaurant and city excursions, such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and many others within a short drive. A car is necessary to reach the house as well as to enjoy the sites. However, the nearest train station is within a 15 minute drive.

About Our Family

Veronique and I are a French, Italian/American couple. We came to live in Florence after many years living in California. Our country house is a weekend retreat and we use it as such. It is ideal for relaxing and a vortex of good, positive energy. While in the quiet setting of the countryside with spectacular views of the surrounding Tuscan hills, fine towns and restaurants are a close distance away. La Buca, as the house is called is ideal for families who want to explore the region, while creating an inviting environment for just relaxing at home.
