Description

Map

Set in the hills just south east of Florence, with one restaurant within 500 metres. This is famous for its typical Tuscan food and fantastic terrace overlooking the city, called "Trattoria la Gargotta". Bagno a Ripoli 2.5km/1.5 mile offers a wide selection of bars, shops and restaurants with a weekly market on Wednesday.  A large shopping centre at Gavinana, 4.5km/3 miles. Florence city centre, about 8km/5 miles, can be easily reached by bus by walking down to near the Trattoria la Gargotta and you have to change twice, with an array of sights such as the Ponte Vecchio, Piazzale Michelangelo not to mention the Duomo. An easier way is to use a taxi into the centre of Florence. We do recommend for families to have a car rental. Further afield is Impruneta, 19km/12 miles, which also boasts a good selection of shops and a weekly market.

Tuscan Heaven. Everything you will need, is provided! Everything you want is right before your eyes. You step outside and gaze at the magnificent Tuscan countryside. Florence, with its Duomo in the distance. A surreal quiet, broken only by the crowing of a rooster, or the ringing of a church bell. THIS is Tuscany!

We can not overstate the value provided. The view is spectacular. The amount of space at your disposal is incredible. This is the antithesis of claustrophobic.

Magical! TNAM were extremely helpful and the booking of the villa was easy. Limonaia is a magical place! Unbelievable views over Forence, and a lovely breeze to take the edge off the heat. Comfortable and cosy villa, ideal for a couple, and absolutely charming hosts. Only disappointment was that Tinto has gone to live in Milan. One point we don't remember being mentioned is the fact that there are a number of steps up to the villa from the parking area - which can be a problem with luggage etc. - especially for senior citizens. We loved every minute of our week and are planning to return. Replies

Magical place with spectacular views over Florence. Quiet, peaceful - all that can be heard are the birds singing and the church bells ringing. Layout of the villa is excellent and it is very well equipped (except for eggcups, and a full length mirror would be a welcome addition). All our shopping requests had been met, and there were other items supplied by the extremely charming hosts. Tinto has gone to live in Milan, so sadly didn't have the opportunity to make his acquaintance. We loved every minute of our stay and are planning to return.

Cousy accommodations in the best possible location to enjoy Florence. Wonderful view of one of the must beautiful cities in the world with an easy access to it either by car or public transportation. Raffaella and Leonardo, the owners are great people that will be there for you only to improve your stay.

Great Service. Excellent web page was easy to negotiate and to locate suitable properties to rent. The photos wee honest !!! which is brilliant. So many times the photo's are a poor representation of reality and it was very nice to see honest photo's of the property one is renting. Staff were easy to contact, followed through promptly, and everything went smoothly. Can't fault anything.

Absolutely charming, both the property and the hosts! After hectic days touring Florence and Tuscany, the ability to return "home" and enjoy an aperitivo on our private patio, in a serenely tranquil setting with spectacular views of Florence and the surrounding olive groves,was an absolute delight. Limonaia itself is very comfortable and roomy, and is well equipped. The gracious hosts ensured that all basics were available, plus some added luxuries. Tinto's evening visits were a nice addition! The photo's on the Tuscany Now website are an honest representation of the property, which is a nice change from so many overhyped offerings. There are two great restaurants nearby in the local village, so all options are available to you.

The views over Florence are stunning. It’s a perfect location for exploring eastern Tuscany with its wooded hills and winding roads. The villa itself is well equipped and very comfortable.

The view of Florence and the sunsets were fabulous! The owners of the villa were extremely accommodating and a pleasure to meet and speak with. We chose this villa due to it's proximity to Florence (~6 miles) and the ability to walk to the town of Bagno a Ripoli. The villa was exactly as described and very comfortable for 2 people. Tinto , the owners dog, was a pleasure to have around.

Clean and lovely apartment, all mod cons. Stunning grounds and a beautiful clean pool which we have had to ourselves! The owner was very helpful when we checked in (Leonardo) and came round yesterday to see if we needed anything. Everything is perfect and we love it here!!

The views from the property over to Florence were sublime. The owners of the property (who live in the main house) are very hospitable and helped us in booking taxis and finding restaurants. We also very much enjoyed our daily visits from their super friendly dog, Tinto. We had a great meal at La Gargotta restaurant, 5 minutes up the hill from the property.

The property has a wonderful view of the entire city of Firenze. It is set in the hills overlooking the city. Very rural. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. The accommodations are lovely. A perfect place to relax.

The owners were lovely and very helpful. The layout and extraordinary view were deeply valued. The old building had lots of charm and a lovely outdoor area. We loved our stay.

Location was perfect, overlooking Florence and within the property of a beautiful original Italian villa. The Villa owners were gracious and discrete and had made a wonderful job of creating a stylish but comfortable living space. We had the most perfect holiday and would return in a heart beat.

Thank you Leonardo and Rafaella for your kindness and hospitality. Also for your excellent recommendations which turned this holiday into our best trip to Tuscany. We were amazed by the wonderful Chianti countryside. Limonaia is very comfortable, the atmosphere is truly relaxed and peaceful. The magnificent view speaks for itself it was lovely also to meet Francesca and the endearing apple pie thief Tinto! With all kind regards

Bye bye Tinto! Thank you for your daily visits, we loved spending time with you. This is a great location, very easy to drive through Chianti which is stunning beautiful. Plus Volpaia, as recommended by one of you, it's very worth the visit. We ate at good local restaurant great food! Thank you for everything!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay here at Limonaia. The setting was perfect for our honeymoon! We enjoyed several romantic sunsets together with that breathtaking view. A special thank you to Mr Leonardo for giving us a lift in these initial days when we were without a car! Thank you also for your marriage advice; we take very seriously any word of wisdom from anyone who has been married for 64 years! Thank you for your kind hospitality and friendly words. Goodbye to our friend Tinto as well.

Limonaia has been the perfect base for our first trip around Tuscany. Very comfortable with breathtaking views over the Florence skyline. Leonardo and his family have been perfect host providing a warm welcome and some excellent recommendations for day trip in the area. We will miss our daily visit from Tinto which kept us entertained. Trattoria Sostanza in Florence served up the most amazing lunch! We were lucky enough to get a table given a local priest told us this was the best restaurant in Florence and even offering to say a prayer to get us a table! San Gimignano was beautiful as was Siena and Lucca is definitely worth a visit too. Leonardo recommended a trip to Greve in Chianti, we Sopped off at Volpaia for an amazing lunch surrounded by a beautiful scenery.. one of the highlights of our trip. Thanks for a fantastic holiday

Dear Leonardo and Raffaella. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality, we had a wonderful time here. Your place is beautiful and breathtaking views are all around. We loved our visit to Siena, Rome, Orvieto, Pisa and most of all seeing the Pope! We will be back! Thank you!

To Leonardo and Raffaella, many thanks for a wonderful stay at Limonaia. We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful part of Italy. It was lovely to celebrate our wedding anniversary near Florence where we spent the honeymoon. Everything was perfect and the views were breathtaking and marvelous. Thank you also to Lorenzo and Alessandra for their very generous hospitality on our first evening and for making all the arrangements in advance. We hope to return to Limonaia soon.
