Holiday house with a private garden in a small, medieval village near Prato

The little house is located near Florence. The site is surrounded by a breathtaking panoramic view and is on a hill in the small medieval village of Carteano (which belongs to Prato).

The house of around 70m² on two floors can accommodate up to four people. Although the internal structure of the house reflects the traditional, rural style of the area, with exposed chestnut wood ceiling beams and cotto floors, it provides all the comfort and convenience of a modern interior. The front door opens into a living room-kitchen. The living room area consists of a sofa with two pull-out single beds (90cm), an LCD HD TV (40 inch), satellite TV, Sky, a stereo system, telephone, DVD player, a docking station and wireless Internet access. The wood kitchen unit is equipped with a fridge, an electric stove, an oven, a toaster, a dishwasher and a coffee machine (Bialetti for espresso). A spiral staircase leads up to a gallery. The dining room is furnished with an extendable dining table and a bench. The bedroom is very romantic, with a wooden double bed (180 x 200cm), matching furniture and a mosquito net, wafting around the bed from a ceiling beam. There is also a large, white wardrobe. The bathroom, whose entrance is concealed, provides a modern massage shower, bidet, washing machine and washbasin with a marble top. All the rooms can be heated. A cot, highchair and other accessories can be provided on request.

The house has not only an enchanting, private garden, but also a plot of land of around three hectares. The garden is right next to the entrance door. It is enclosed by a hedge and on one side faces an interior courtyard and the square, and on the other it offers a wonderful view of the landscape and the town. The garden, where an oak tree grows, has a table and chairs, as well as a grill. Only the garden is private, while the site, the parking area and the bins are shared with the neighbours.

A small stock of groceries is provided at the house: noodles, tins of tomatoes, herbs, oil, tea, coffee, drinks etc. A small surprise also awaits you. Olive oil, vegetables and fruit are produced and cultivated on site, which are available for purchase. The owners live just five minutes away in Prato and can be contacted at any time if required.

The house is just a few minutes from the enchanting historic centre of Prato and 30 minutes from Florence. Many other Tuscan towns are easily accessible: Pistoia (15 minutes), Montecatini (25 minutes), Lucca (35 minutes), Viareggio and the famous Versilia Riviera (45 minutes=, as well as Pisa, Siena and Bologna (60 mins), Perugia and Arezzo (90 mins). For hiking enthusiasts and trips, there are various trails and paths in the forests and the Calvana mountains, of which some are near the house. For cyclists there are also some mountain bike routes in the mountains, as well as along the river bank in the town. From the main train station in Prato, there are regular trains to Florence. In the immediate vicinity there are two of the best restaurants in Prato, both just a ten-minute walk away. They offer the best traditional Tuscan cuisine, as well as a lovely view over the town.

    “Lovely accommodation with an amazing landscape. Very Charming House with all Furnitures and everything you need. All the rooms have the walls painted in different color, it's really nice. The garden and the position are also charming, in fact the house is in a quite natural contest but at the same time I went to Prato in just 5 minutes. Great and Friendly People. Cleaning ok, quality accommodation for a good price.”
