Alessandra and Franco are the best hosts ever!
The location was perfect for us. All the interesting places are nearby. The apartments are comfortable and very clean. The pool is amazing. We have had one of our best holidays ever. Chris and Irene, Rotterdam

We were guests at the La Canigiana last month, and the memories from this unforgettable holiday are still with us.
Look nowhere else! This villa is the most perfect place you can find in Tuscany to spend your vacation.
The location - just 15 mins from the center of Florence, but you're still in the country! We loved waking up to the sounds of birds and complete silence. opening the villa door and letting the beautiful views of the country fill us with calmness and silence was an unforgettable experience.
The villa itself - we stayed at the lower level villa (out of the two offered), which also has an amazing balcony to the view. Green everywhere outside, beautiful landscape. We loved having our breakfast outside, with the olive trees and birds and green. Inside - comfort, endless thought about every little detail, well equipped kitchen, wonderful bed, beautifully appointed room, shining clean and with the luxury and comfort of a 5* hotel. Even had all the little soaps and shampoos etc in the bathroom.
The owners - we have a huge place for Alessandra and her husband in our hearts. They were kind and gentle, never tired of helping us with all our questions on where to go and what to see, welcomed us into their farm (they live in the house close to the villa) with open hearts and warm hospitality. The perfect hosts!
Alessandra made a tasty chocolate pie that waited for us on our arrival in our room, as well as products for breakfast - all of great quality. The organic farm was a great source for our salad greens (free!), and we had such a wonderful time that we even cooked our dinners in our villa and didn't go out - it was so enjoyable to spend the evening on our balcony!
The pool is stunning, the grounds are large and spcaious, you feel completely isolated from everyday hassle, and yet you're in the best possible location in Tuscany.
We will be back!! Can't wait to come again.
Thank you, Alessandra, for making this such a memorable vacation

This is the perfect little Tuscan villa. Alesandra and her family are warm & welcoming, the villa is clean and well equipt. The veggies & herbs from the garden come in handy when cooking, not to mention the olive oil! The villa is on the organic olive farm and it's delicious. The location of the villa is perfect. It's close enough to San Casciano for shopping. And it's a quick and easy drive into Florenze. It's close to Florenze, yet once you are there you feel you are a million miles away from a big city.
The view from the villa is amazing and the pool is lovely as well. I wish we stayed longer just to do NOTHING!! There is so much to do in Tuscany and Florenze that most of our days were filled. The veranda was great to have breakfast while overlooking the neighboring villas and farms. The only complaint we had was that there was no sharp knife to cook with (but that's the same with my house most of the time). Obviously, everything was wonderful! Thanks Alessandra; we hope to see you again!

We just happened upon this beautiful place! We asked if they had a room for 1 night, but ended up staying 3 nights! Would have loved to stay longer. Alessandra spoke excellent English, and was very pleasant to deal with- even offered to heat the swimming pool for us!! It was a bit late in the season, and we are not swimmers, but the pool area, bbq and sitting areas are all very private, and welcoming. The location is perfect for day trips to Florence, Sienna, and the Tuscany wine region. 2.10 Euro to take the bus into the center of Florence. Easier than driving and finding a parking place. The house that we stayed in was extremely well kept, modern and clean. Even the dishes and kitchen was clean and tidy, with lots of room and we enjoyed cooking our meals more here than in any other place we stayed this trip! The views of Florence and the surrounding countryside were much appreciated in such a quiet and peaceful rural setting. Alessandra gave us some exellent advice on sights to see and visit. Including Leonardo DaVince's birthplace in Vince with a very interesting museum in the town.

The apartment was perfect, great location, only about 20 minutes to the middle of Florence and in a great spot for day trips. The view is amazing, the pool was perfect and the service was spectacular. The host was very helpful and brought us olive oil made on the farm, as well as a basket of fresh organic veggies and fruits from the backyard. She also had wine on hand from a friend's vineyard that was great and very inexpensive. The terrace patio was great--we had breakfast and a few dinners out there. The upstairs windows provided an outstanding view of the countryside. I highly recommend this place.
