villa layout
The house lies within the "Parco di Cercina", a park under Italian state protection, in the splendid hills that lie around Florence, and is a detached house lying within the grounds of a larger property, where the likeable owners live. It has a private entrance and garden, where you will find the private 5x10m swimming-pool with night-time illumination, the typical tuscan barbecue and a covered, furnished veranda with rustic benches and table. The garden, completely enclosed, is very well looked after, with typical mediterranean plants and paving in local stone, and the view dominates the entire valley that leads downhill through olive and cypress trees towards the old city centre of Florence; there are also breathtaking sunsets from here. The interior is furnished with high-quality pieces in tasteful style typical of Tuscany, and is equipped with heating, dishwasher, washing-machine and dryer, microwave oven, safe, satellite-TV, WIFI internet connection and stereo with CD player. The area round about is tranquil and relaxing, but very convenient for going to the centre of Florence in about 15 minutes by car. Nearby are some excellent restaurants that offer typical tuscan cuisine, and about 1 km away in the village of Montorsoli, you will find food shops and other essentials. A tranquil holiday in the heart of the florentine hills. Click here for a virtual tour

"It was truly a wonderful experience. The villa is beautifully situated overlooking spectacular views of the Tuscan hills and the city of Florence.
The family that owns and runs the villa treated us like long-time friends.
The only issue we had was the difficultly driving – even though we rented a car in the end we found that using a car service was easier and took the stress out. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Tuscany.
The Chef Service at Ginestra has been wonderful…absolutely wonderful! Started our trip with some of the best food we had all trip long.
Thank you

"Bel giorno
Ginestra è stato molto buono! The property was absolutely beautiful and the hosts treated us like family rather than guests. The memories of them will always be with us.
The property was very well kept and it lacked nothing. Being our first time renting villas verses hotels it was nerve racking trying to find the place up the side of the mountain with those one way roads. When we tried to drive it was a nightmare trying to find the place again. The car service in Florence saved the day and they were knowledgeable and courteous. We hardly drove the car. The girls you hired to prepare us a meal the first day were better than we ever imagined. One of the best meals we had while in Italy.

We also took a cooking class while there, and they came to our villa. Fiamma and Ginnie they were fantastic. If you have client looking for something like that I would recommend them highly.

Is your service or Ginestra affiliated with trip advisor? If so let me know how to reference them and I would take the time to give you both a great review. Your service was greatly appreciated and made our trip much more enjoyable.

Molte grazie dai tuoi amici Americani!

"Wir waren wirklich sehr zufrieden mit der Unterkunft - dass wir mit dem Wetter kein Glück hatten und so den Swimming-Pool und die Grillstelle nicht benutzen konnten ist ja nicht die Schuld der Vermieter..

Die Zimmer waren sehr schön, auch die Couch im Wohnzimmer. Küche perfekt ausgestattet, die Leute unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Ist für uns auf jeden Fall bei einem weiteren Besuch in der Toskana für uns wieder eine Option!

"Have you ever been to the Villa Ginestra? It has the most wonderful setting in the hills with views over Florence. The pool and garden are a delight and the interior is spacious and very attractive. The visitors' book is full of superlatives.

Do you have an overall feedback on your properties such as the one that VFB put into their hotel brochure each year? I think is is both an effective marketing tool and useful for quality control.
Thank you for a good holiday. We will certainly recommend you to friends.

Sadly we are now back at home (trying to cope with
grey skies again) having enjoyed a wonderful 3 weeks
in Italy. We loved the villa, not just because it is
so pretty and has a wonderful view but also because it
had been done with such sensitivity and attention to
tenants' comfort - quite definitely the best of the
many rented properties that we have stayed in. The
weekly cleaning and linen change was an added bonus as
were Paolo and his family who were charming and
hospitable - including helping us when our car broke
Thank you also for your help and that of your

we had a great holiday. The villa was terrific , it's style, decor, accommodation, garden, pool and location. The owners were friendly and most helpful.

We could recommend it and your service without hesitation. Best Regards,"
"Hello Allessandra,

The villla and the owners were absolutly brilliant. we enjoyed our holiday so much we do not have any complaints only observations but I am not that computer literate so it would probably be better if I give you a quick call sometime.We appreciated the time everybody took to try and make our holiday perfect.Will talk to you soon.

Kindest Regards

"We had a great 6 week trip and the highlight was this villa. Just
excellent. Thanks for brokering the deal.

"Our stay at Ginestra was perfect in all ways. The home is lovely --
clean, nicely furnished with everything one could need and ample in size. The
setting has breathtaking views and a wonderful sense of calm. The pool
perfect for the Tuscan summer heat especially with children. Our hosts
very nice and hospitable. They were available when we needed them --
was not often -- but respected our privacy. Several times they stopped
with much appreciated gifts from their vegetable gardens. I would
recommend Ginestra to any of our friends.

Please let me know if you have any specific questions or if I can be of
further assistance."
