La Tenuta Il Vallone is a classic farmhouse of Tuscany with a swimming pool set in three hectares of groomed grounds amongst the vineyards of the Nievole valley. The road to the farmhouse is a tiny winding lane bordered by ancient Tuscan oak trees. The impressive gates swing open onto the large garden that surrounds the farmhouse.
With around 700 olive trees that yield the wonderful extra virgin olive oil that Tuscany is world famous for, Il Vallone offers our guests a dream setting for their vacation and is perfectly located for trips to the art cities of Tuscany such as Florence, Lucca and Pistoia.
The inviting swimming pool (6x12 metres) is stepped into the hill below the farmhouse and is positioned to catch all-day sun. There is also a large, private and secure parking area, a barbecue, mountain bikes and little laundry.
Il Vallone offers unique farmhouse holiday accommodation: modern apartments in a farmhouse in Tuscany. The farmhouse has been converted into four independent, self catering apartments: two 3 room apartments and two 2 room apartments.
There are two apartments on the first floor, and two on the ground floor, each with an independent entrance. The upper apartments have splendid views over the olive groves which slope away to the south. These apartments feature the original ceilings with sturdy chesnutwood beams and terracotta tiles typical of Tuscany.
The apartments on the ground floor open onto the sunny terrace on the sheltered south side of the farmhouse, where you can enjoy dining on warm evenings as the Tuscan sun sets in the west. Each apartment has independent heating, air conditioning, satellite TV and anti-theft alarms, and a shared laundry.
The three room apartments Ortensia on the ground floor, and Elleboro on the first floor, are both on the east side of the house and are composed of a living/kitchen area with sofa bed, a double room, a single room and a bathroom with a shower.
The 2 room apartment, Geranio on the ground floor and Primula on the first floor, are on the west side of the farmhouse, have a living area with cooking corner and sofa bed, a double bed room, and a bathroom with a shower.
