Think of a tiny charming ancient tower, embedded in a time into a small XIX century tuscan villa on the florentine hills.
Think of a romantic place for a couple, with a bedroom and a living room which opens onto a breathtaking terrace in the countryside, with a bathroom and a tiny kitchen.
Also think that in 20 minutes drive you are into Florence downtown. Well, this is the place!
To get all this you have to climb three flights of stairs with no lift. But you'll see it surely worth the effort.
No one can say exactly how old the tower is. Certainly it underwent transformations at various times, gradually embedded in the building environment. Maybe at the beginning it was one of the guard towers of the nearby castle called "Torre Rossa".
The place is easy to find with a GPS, However, is located at the highest point of the street whose name, translated into English, sounds something like "sharp edged hill". It is easily recognizable for two beautiful plants of jasmine on either side of the door.
There is a very large car park on the opposite side of the road. Sometimes some of our guests with particularly large vans, have preferred to park at a nearby public parking.
The entrance is on the second floor of the building. The street entrance and staircase are shared with two other apartments on the ground floor and first floor
Interaction with guests
We live in the building of which the tower is part. This allows us to be quite flexible for check in and out. Just knock the door for any need or information. We are there. Or just call on the mobile in the case no one is at home.
- Please remeber to close windows when you go out
- Please, alway chack the door on the street is secured each time you go aout

Abito a San Gersolè con la mia famiglia. Ho tre figli, Matteo, Maddalena e Tommaso. Adoro Firenze e la Toscana e ne conosco bene la storia e i monumenti, ma anche il territorio attorno a casa mia e le sue mille sorprese. Mi piace cucinare per gli amici, in particolare con i nostri prodotti dell'orto.
I live in San Gersolé with my family. I have three children, Matteo Maddalena and Tommaso. I love Florence and Tuscany, and I know well its history and the monuments, but also the sweet countryside around my home and its many surprises. I enjoy cooking for friends, especially with products from our own vegetable garden.
