Pian dei Cerri – new rental home Ref. 140
Recently I was contacted by the Florentine owners of a property which I am very fond to represent. The beautiful vacation home in Pian dei Cerri is an ideal base for your sightseeing in Florence and for a conscious life style due to an organic farm in the same area.
The rental home is located in Scandicci, on rolling hills very near to Florence (30mns away!) within an uncontaminated landscape. The holiday home allies the very traditional and fine structure to a modern furniture that works perfectly. It is located in a barn (fienile in Italian) whose windows have that very characteristic clay bricks carefully layed in a zig-zag manner… Hay (fieno in Italian) used to be stacked there in storage for winter, and it needed air circulating. Hence the openings with bricks which allow that air comes in, but the animals are kept out. After all – Impruneta and its famous “terra” is close-by.
The barn offers a perfect ambience for two persons in a very quiet setting, far from the city’s traffic, but it opens a stunning view to Florence with its recognisable Cupola of the Cathedral.
The close farm (www.fattoriasanmichele.it) and the family who runs it, grow certified organic farm products , wines and olive oil, which might provide the ingredients for your meals cooked in the extremly well equipped kitchen of the barn. All is cultivated with great care, with an attentive eye to keep the traditions and to our health. A hard work , surely – the wines are organic Chianti Colli Fiorentini, our neighbours from Chianti Classico !
Arrivederci for now
