La Volpe, the warmth of Tuscany
Relax and comfort in a wonderful setting.
Nature all around, no traffic noises and great sunset views.
Private parking, WiFi, swimming pool.
Beautifully furnished with antiques.
Owner living onsite and available in case of need.
Located in the famous Chianti area, just 18 km from Florence. Perfect location to visit Tuscan art cities.
La Volpe is a 100sqm apartment located inside an old and very exclusive Villa named, Villa il Cavato. The property has 6 hectares of land, of which 3.000sqm are garden with fruit trees and wonderful hidden corners, at complete guests disposal.
Furnished in a beautiful, elegant style the country house has recently and lovingly been restored with care and respect for its history. It retains its colonial character and charm with elegant interiors of stone walls and parquet floors .
Bright and spacious, the fully independent apartment consists of:
- 2 double bedrooms, one double and one with twin beds which can be joined on request
- 2 bathrooms,
- main lounge /living room with sofa bed,
- large and fully equipped kitchen
- dining room
- laundry room
- private outdoor courtyard with table and chairs to enjoy meals, read a book or just enjoy the views,
- private parking.
The apt is set on two levels.
On the ground floor there is the main lounge, the dining room, the large kitchen (dishwasher, electric oven, gas stove, fridge with icebox) and the laundry room with washing machine.
On the upper floor, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
There are wonderful parquet floors throughout the house with underfloor heating.
You will also find: TV, Wifi, fans and numerous books.
Perfectly positioned swimming pool set amongst the lush gardens with views looking out over the Tuscan countryside.
I rent 3 apartments inside the Villa.
Each one is completely independent with private and secluded entrance (away from others) and private area in the garden for outside dining.
Pool is shared with other guests but it is never crowded.
Guests will have full access to the whole property, to the beautiful park with orchards, to the olive groves and the swimming pool.
The swimming pool is just below the main garden with lounge chairs and covered area.
Parking is available directly next to the property.
Quiet location just 3,5 km from the village of San Polo in Chianti where you will find the supermarket, post office, pharmacy, bank and some very good typical trattorias.
Many paths in the surroundings for wonderful walks in the nature.
Nearest bus stop to go to Florence is about 800 meters but public transport is spotty.
Buses timetable is designed to meet the needs of commuters. Therefore rides are concentrated in the very early morning (last at 7.20 am) and in the evening (between 5.30pm and 7.30pm).
Rides are further reduced on Saturdays and there is no service on Sundays and public holidays.
A car is then highly recommended and we will be glad to give you directions to reach free parking spots to leave your car while you visit Florence.
A good option is the train station of Figline Valdarno, with its very comfortable FREE parking. There is a train to Florence central station (Firenze SMN) about every 30 minutes. Travelling time varies from 30 to 40 minutes

Reviews of this property
Clean, friendly and helpful service. Stefania made us feel very welcome, a little slice of paradise.
Herrliche Landschaft, schöne Unterkunft mit guter Ausstattung. Sehr freundliche Betreuung. Wunderbarer Garten, ruhig gelegen.
Bellissimo casale fra le colline del chianti immerso in una natura lussureggiante. La bella casa in pietra è facilmente raggiungibile, se si seguono le indicazioni della proprietaria e non del navigatore..., tramite un piccolo pezzo di sterrato nel verde ed è circondata da un giardino perfectamente curato. Gli interni sono arredati con gusto e la proprietaria è sempre molto carina e disponibile.
Noi avevamo un bimbo di quasi un anno e ci ha fatto trovare un lettino, un seggiolone e perfino un passeggino.
Un luogo davvero delizioso, pacifico e rilassante.
We spent a wonderful time in the apartment in the old farmhouse Il Cavato. The apartment is lovingly furnished in a homely style. The owner of your guests home with great commitment, is very courteous and hospitable. Il Cavato is surrounded by the native fauna and flora and is very nice in the middle of the bush. The good road access allows quick attachment to the above local road network so that the tourist destinations in the north and the center of Tuscany can easily be reached. An ideal starting point for explorers interested Tuscany in the heart of Chianti, do not hesitate to contact with nature and would like like to exchange with the very nice hostess. Thank you for a great stay, we will come back. Susanne & John
Wir haben eine wunderbare Zeit in der Ferienwohnung in dem alten Bauernhaus Il Cavato verbracht. Das Apartment ist im wohnlichen Stil liebevoll eingerichtet. Die Besitzerin beherbergt mit großem Engagement Ihre Gäste, ist sehr zuvorkommend und gastfreundlich.
Il Cavato ist umgeben von der heimischen Tier- und Pflanzenwelt und liegt sehr nett mitten in der Macchia. Die gute Straßenanbindung ermöglicht eine schnelle Anknüpfung an das überörtliche Straßennetz, so dass die touristischen Ziele im Norden und der Mitte der Toskana gut erreicht werden können.
Ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für interessierte Toskana-Entdecker im Herzen des Chianti, die den Kontakt mit der Natur nicht scheuen und sich gerne mit der äußerst netten Hausherrin austauschen mögen.
Vielen Dank für den tollen Aufenthalt, wir kommen gerne wieder.

It was a fantastic holiday! Great house and beautiful private setting, very nice landlady! Has always helped us when we had a question. In the house everything is there what you need. We made trips to Florence, Siena and Pisa. We will definitely be back! Thanks again for everything!
Es war ein traumhafter Urlaub! Tolles Haus und schöne Alleinlage, sehr nette Vermieterin! Hat uns immer geholfen, wenn wir eine Frage hatten. Im Haus ist alles vorhanden, was man benötigt. Wir haben Ausflüge nach Florenz, Siena und Pisa gemacht. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder! Vielen Dank nochmal für Alles!
A very nice house. The location outside the village with only the owners house and a holiday home as neighbors enjoyed it very well. The furniture is high quality and very nice, the kitchen and its equipment läßte also elaborate cooking nights. The condition is of Tuscan conditions very well. Together with the beautiful large property just right for relaxing and exploring Tuscany.
Ein sehr schönes Haus. Die Lage außerhalb einer Ortschaft mit nur dem Eigentümerhaus und einem weiteren Ferienhaus als Nachbarn hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Einrichtung ist hochwertig und sehr schön, die Küche und ihre Ausstattung läßte auch aufwendigere Kochabende zu. Der Zustand ist für toskanische Verhältnisse sehr gut. Zusammen mit dem wunderschönen großen Grundstück genau das Richtige zum Ausspannen und zur Erkundung der Toskana.
