Overview

Casa Egizia is a splendid, restored farmhouse divided into two properties. It is set on a sunny hillside just over a mile from the centre of the lovely hilltop village of Montaione and has fine views to the surrounding countryside. On clear days you can see San Miniato with its famous tower of Federico II and the Apennine Mountains in the distance. The twelve acre farm estate has vineyards and olive groves and you are very welcome to buy both wine and olive oil from the owners. There is also an orchard and a kitchen garden. The farmhouse is set peacefully about three hundred yards from the road to Montaione and there are country walks from the door.

At Casa Egizia you are well-placed for visits to all the major sights of Tuscany - Montaione is so centrally placed midway between San Gimignano, Certaldo and Volterra and with Florence, Pisa and Siena all accessible by car or by train - the nearest station is at Castelfiorentino. There is good shopping in Montaione and a supermarket at Castelfiorentino. Montaione offers a number of places to eat and the whole area is well-served with restaurants serving typical Tuscan food. Golf course at Castelfalfi - 10 minutes drive.

Both properties are tastefully furnished with many antique pieces and have modern country style kitchens and very good bathrooms. There are terracotta floors and beamed ceilings throughout and the walls are painted in soft pastel colours. The houses are newly prepared for letting with a good feeling of quality. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available in each property and in the garden. Central heating available if required. A cot can be supplied on request.

The two properties can be let separately but would work equally well if taken together by a larger party wanting a private pool.

Both properties share use of the delightful swimming pool (12m x 6m, depth 1.15m to 1.40m) just a short stroll from the farmhouse and from where there are fine views - the circular end of the pool has a bench where you can enjoy hydromassage. A children's swing and seesaw are also provided. There are two good barbecues to the rear and both properties have their own covered terraces for eating out of doors. Garden furniture is provided. Each property has private access to its own garden areas. An electric gate leads to covered parking plus an underground garage and a laundry for shared use.

Notes: We love the area around Montaione and you will certainly find yourselves well-placed for touring or relaxing amid delightful surroundings. These properties are equally well suited to separate use or for those larger families or two families who wish to stay together and have use of a private pool.
