Gambassi Terme, Tuscany
De-stress: Set in the subtle background of renaissance painting, and lost in the timeless Tuscan landscape, Casa Quintino is the ultimate romantic getaway, the perfect cure for city stress, and the ideal base from which to explore the culture of Tuscany. It offers visitors the deep tranquility of unspoiled Tuscan countryside off the conventional tourist route.

Nature: As our reviews confirm, Casa Quintino appeals particularly to real nature lovers. The property is on the white truffle route and surrounded by oak forests, with lovely walking./ biking trails radiating all over the hills. Locals often come to collect truffles, asparagus, blackberries, wild herbs and mushrooms.

Cooling off: We have a paddling/splash pool for kids.

Interaction with guests
In Summer, the owners will be staying at the house in a seperate apartment and will receive you and provide any information you need. Alternatively when owners are not present, our Italian Manageress Cristina will meet you upon arrangement and guide you to the house and introduce you to the neighbourhood amenities, and leave you to yourselves. Either way your privacy is assured but we are always here to help if needed.

We are in the centre of the cultural triangle, one hour equidistant from world renowned cultural attractions in PIsa, Florence and Siena. We are only one hour from Cecina which is the start of the long sandy beaches of the Etruscan coast, stretching to Popolonia, and out to the Island of Elba. We are only two hours from the beautiful northern coast line of the Cinque Terre.

We are also in the Parco Bennessere, a newly formed national reserve for Wellness tourism with a natural spa in Gambassi Terme and Castle Falsi which is an upmarket getaway for the rich and famous, with exotic swimming pool and sunset terrace with views to die for.

Getting around
Our nearest station is Certaldo on the line to Poggibonsi. At least one car should be hired as we are off the main bus route but if you have friends coming advise them to come to Certaldo. If you are going to Florence it may be easier to leave the car in the free parking at Certaldo and take the train to Florence as parking there is difficult and expensive.
