Fattoria degli Usignoli is a historic villa looking out over the Valdarno and Chianti landscapes. It was built by the monks of Vallombrosa.
Florence and Siena are both within an hour and 30 minute's drive of the medieval borgo (village). San Gimignano -- an old town encircled by 13th-century walls and centred on Piazza della Cisterna, lined with medieval houses -- is an hour and 15 minutes' drive away. We recommend visiting its 12th-century church with frescoes by Ghirlandaio.
The property is surrounded by eleven hectares of parkland, and has three swimming pools, a bar and a winery, where the guests can enjoy home-grown red and white wines, as well as the top wines from all over Italy. The restaurant serves typical Tuscan cuisine, including the famous “Florentine T-bone steak”.
The rooms overlooks the valley and are decorated with a traditional look. Wi-Fi is free.
