Washing machine outside of the house. Baby-bed available. The outdoor areas which surround the house are for the exclusive use of the guests. The barn is situated atop a scenic hill in the Tipertoli homestead in San Martino Altoreggi at about 350 meters above sea level, in the countryside near Figline Valdarno, a charming town in the province of Florence. With its spectacular panoramic views as far as the eye can see, the “Old Barn” acts as a natural terrace overlooking the upper Arno valley. The Tipertoli homestead is surrounded by olive trees, cypress tress, as well as oak and chestnut tree forests. It is located in the open countryside and offers a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere to the person who truly wishes to find the millenarian symbiosis that joins man with nature. Moreoever, the “Old Barn' is also the perfect point of departure to easily reach the artistic, historical, and natural places of Tuscany and neighboring regions, allowing excursions by car, motorcycle, and bicycle. We are in fact in the middle of a triangle where on each summit, you will find one of the three most famous cities for art: Florence, Siena, and Arezzo (check a map for exact distances). The three cities are all easily accessible via public transportation (train or bus) or private transportation. Additionally,the Chianti region with its characteristic villages and world renowned wine is very close by. The nearest village is Figline Valdarno, approximately 4 km away. Aside from its characteristic and important historical center, you can also find all the services that can be necessary for a perfect stay: supermarkets, banks, pharmacies and all sorts of shops, open sometimes also on Sundays and evenings. Tuesdays, from 7 a.m. to 1.30 p.m., a typical weekly market takes place on Marsilio Ficino square – central square. The area does not lack medical facilities either. In Figline Valdarno, there is a hospital with emergency room and an outpatient clinic with medical specialists. And for the athletic traveller, there are also sporting facilities in the outskirts where one can enjoy swimming, horseback riding, tennis, etc.More
