The
Experience

With Florence’s Duomo glistening in the distance across a carpet of olive groves, this Tuscan farmhouse has the best of both worlds. Set amongst the sparkling air of the Chianti hills, it is 15 minutes from that glorious city. Producing organic olive oil, the farm has been in Alessandra’s family for over 100 years. Her family still live on the estate – let yourself to be swept into their warm embrace, including plenty of local produce (cheeses, sausages) and wine to taste. The apartments (with private entrances) share those views. A cut above those of the average agriturismo, the bedrooms here are country comfortable with colourful bedspreads, wrought-iron beds, posies of fresh flowers and prints on white walls. Traditionally tiled floors, beams and shuttered windows add charm. Kitchen areas incorporated into the living room are fine for holiday cooking and there are pretty tablecloths for dinner; choose the ground-floor apartment for its lovely terrace, or take the two together. Those Tuscan jewels – Pisa, Lucca, Siena – are under an hour away, and there’s an orchard-enclosed pool for your return. Bliss.

Reviews

Fantastic place, amazing location- just a short drive or tram away from Florence city centre. The views from the top apartment we stayed in were glorious- and from the farm you can see to Florence. Very comfortable place to stay for two, with everything you needed. Probably the most picturesque pool I have been in. What really made our trip memorable was our hosts- Alessandra and her husband were so kind and helpful. We have a lovely holiday so thank you very much.

Back for a second visit bringing friends with us this time. Welcomed back like old friends by family and dogs alike, it was as lovely as we remembered and our friends loved it too. So peaceful, 360 degree views, beautiful private pool and we visited Florence, Siena and Lucca, plus wonderful meals at restaurants recommended by the ever helpful Alessandra. We will definitely be back soon.

Absolutely perfect get away from it all break only an hour from Pisa airport. 10 minute tram ride from Florence but in the heart of beautiful, peaceful Tuscan countryside. Alessandra couldn't be more welcoming, but never intrusive. Great restaurant recommendations too. Lovely pool with a view, peace and quiet, pick your own tomatoes, basil, figs and salad and soak up the ambience. Views in every direction - we will be back, with our walking boots

Local points of interest from Alessandra Calligaris

  • La Canigiana is an organic farm 20 minutes drive from the heart of Florence, immersed in one of the most beautiful Chianti's areas. The atmosphere of a private home away from any noise and rushed urban atmosphere make La Canigiana the ideal place to stay!
  • A day out to see the city's art treasures couldn't be easier! After a day spent visiting the museums and the monuments of the city, don't miss enjoying the sunset from the beautiful panoramic terrace or the breathtaking view of Florence .
  • You may have the option to rent the entire guesthouse in total privacy being the only guests enjoying the tranquility of our farm suitable up to 4/6 people or the downstairs apartment with large terrace with a great view, or the upstairs apartment,
  • The cypress and olive trees,the slopes that curve and follow the magnificent scenery,this is the scenary,really amusing! It is said that in order to better appreciate the beauty of a territory, one has to enjoy and savour it slowly, guided by the nature!
  • These and more can be found in the Chianti area:San Casciano V.P.,San Gimignano,Siena,Volterra, Greve, Panzano,Radda. You can also reach in less than 1 hour drive Pisa and Lucca. We'll help you finding 'your' itinerary!
  • Franco, Alessandra and Claudia are truly committed to do everything they possibly can to satisfy their guests.
