Montespertoli, Tuscany
In the beautiful Chianti region 18 kilometers from the center of Florence, Raffiacane is a traditional farmhouse standing at one end of 6 hectares of olive grove and vineyard on a hill overlooking the Pesa river, a tributary of the Arno. The abandoned farm and buildings were restored in the 1970’s.
Recently, one section of the farmhouse has been remodeled as a year round vacation apartment. With a private entrance and patio, 50 square meters (530 square feet) are divided into a large bedroom, a bathroom and a fully equipped live-in kitchen.
Florence is roughly halfway between Rome and Milan, about 3 hours from either city, on the A-1 (E-80) motorway. Raffiacane is convenient for any number of daytrips around Tuscany. Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, and Arezzo are all close. The sea is an hour away to the west, the mountains an hou...

We enjoyed our stay at Paul and Linda's lovely hideaway just above Cerbaia, in Tuscany. The location was outstanding, as it gave us easy access to Florence and Siena, as well as the option to park our hire car at a local station and catch the tram into central Florence. The apartment itself is very charming in a rustic Tuscan...

Management response:

We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and thank you for your suggestions. The electrical blackout was due to a problem on the grid and we are very sorry there wasn't a torch, but the last guests must have taken it away with them by mistake, and candles have caused problems in the past. We weren't aware of the blackout unitil...

Mastering the roadways was our biggest challenge however and you must have a car (we rented our from Hertz in Florence) and good, up-to-date GPS. Once you've figured out the roundabouts,...
