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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Alessandra's place is a great place to stay. Her and Giovanni were very welcoming and friendly. The place is very clean and spacious and has beautiful views of the Tuscan hills. We made a last minute change to our reservation when we got there and they were super flexible with the change. They were also very generous in providing extra towels and other necessities as required. Always available by communication also! This place is great to hire a car and make day trips to Florence and other areas of Tuscany. It is nice and secluded. Cannot recommend this highly enough! We had a great time!!

Everything about our stay was perfect and Alessandra really made sure our experience would be perfect! With quick replies if we needed some suggestions on what was interesting in the neighbourhood.We had planned to visit Florence, Pisa and more on our stay but soon realised that the nearest surrounding towns were perfect for visiting. I really cant recommend Alessandra's Tower enough.

A beautiful house near central Florence! The flat is lovely, clean and well equipped, bust most importantly has an stunning view of Tuscany. It is truly amazing! It's perfect for two or one couples. You'll be in central Florence in 15/20 minutes by car. It is worth the ride! Of course it is easier if you have a car but there is also a bus. I recommend Alessandra's place 100%, you won't regret it at all!

Alessandra's tower is stunning - we had such a lovely weekend here. It is kitted out with everything you need, the bed is comfortable, and the bathroom is modern (with a great shower!). Air conditioning was our saviour, as it was 34 degrees outside! The best bit about the apartment is the terrace - photos really don't do the view justice! Alessandra herself is lovely - really kind and helpful, but not intrusive at all. We would definitely try and stay here again! Thanks Alessandra!

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.
