Vacation Rental Description
The Frantoio delle Grazie accommodation is a pleasant and relaxing alternative to visit Florence outside the city itself. Guests can easily reach downtown (by car, by bicycle or by public transportations) and enjoy Tuscan countryside pleasures as well. The Frantoio delle Grazie is only 5 minutes drive from the A1 highway exit “Firenze Sud” (South Florence); The hill of Settignano is the natural frame for this panoramic area protected by Italian Superintendency of Cultural Heritage and Environment. Its natural surrounding is dominated by olive groves, vineyards, cypresses and oak-trees. It is only 3 Km from Florence historical city centre; nearest shopping centre is far only 1 Km.
The Villa is a traditional Florentine countryside home: its structure goes back to the XVIth Century. The recent restoration has maintained its original aspect and joined the ancient character together with modern amenities. The charming Florentine atmosphere of Il Frantoio delle Grazie is revealed through the use of typical Tuscan materials as stone, terracotta tiles, beams showing and wrought iron. The interior decoration and the choice of furniture (ancient and period pieces) are in harmony with the regional taste. Every detail has been studied to let you enjoy a pleasant and elegant welcome. The ancient rural rooms, such as the grindstone for olives and the wine cellar, have retained their historical charme.
