This could cause some imprecisions. This modern 6BR/4BA villa is an enchanted paradise for friends & families with kids (barbeque, trampoline, basketball area, soccer & volleyball/beach tennis nets and table tennis) & with pets (fenced garden). It is located in the small village Abbadia Isola in the shadow of the medieval castle of Monteriggioni, right on the path of Via Francigena, the ancient road & pilgrim route running from France to Rome. Siena is the closest town (12 min by car), while Florence is 45 mins drive away. Our home is perfect to offer you peace and fantastic countryside location to rest. Our guests always enjoy several indoors and outdoors ... amenities (see photos). The house has internet WiFi coverage, a fully equipped large & modern kitchen with AC, TV screen in the living room. 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the ground and first floor. In addition, the attic with view on the castle, offers a big air-conditioned room with a 170 cm large double bed on the floor and a 120 cm long wooden fenced baby bed, plus laundry room with ensuite toilet, dryer and washing machine. Possibility to add 2 twin mattresses for families with kids. All bedrooms have mosquito nets and adjustable shutters: the area in summer is nice and ventilated and you can sleep with open windows, without need of AC, listening to the countryside night sounds. For families with small babies & toddlers we have 1 Stokke Tripp Trapp and 2 IKEA high chairs.Two safety car seats would also be available for use by 4+ year old kids. ------ GUEST ACCESS ------ You can access the entire house, including garden and parking area. If availability allows, alternative check-in/out times can be considered upon request. Super discounted access (5EUR/day) to the local (10 min drive) outdoor multi-swimming pool complex is available during summer months (open from mid June to the end of August). For groups larger than 16 adults + 2 kids: depending on availability, adjacent neighbors' house can host additional 2 adults + 2 kids. All guests can share same common areas. Inquiry for details. Should you be interested in dates that are not available on the calendar, feel free to ask: we blocked on the calendar the days when the whole family plans to be at home, but if space allows, we would be happy to offer you a nice accommodation. We have a long experience of free home exchange and we love the possibility to meet new people and share cultures (and cooking!) ------ THE AREA ------ Search for 'monteriggioniturismo' online for relevant tourist info. It is the ideal location to start your bike and mountain bike tours of the area. A detailed hike and bike trails map is available for you to borrow during your stay. Get used to greet hikers passing by and asking for directions to Monteriggioni's castle: the house is located on a portion of Via Francigena, that the pilgrims used to walk to reach Rome from France - today it is a well indicated and beautiful hiking track, across olive trees fields and vineyards. Across an easy path though the fields and alongside the woods, you can bike to Monteriggioni in 15 min or walk there in 30 min. The last part is uphill, so you need good legs ... but the nice view and an icecream at the castle will repay the effort! The house is located 300 mt out of the small village of Abbadia Isola, so you will enjoy the nature and the natural sounds of the countryside, while still being at 3 min drive from the nearest supermarket, bank, pharmacy & bus & train stop. You can park your car in front of the house or inside the fence. ------ GETTING AROUND ------ Siena is the closest main town and can be reached by car in 12 minutes, while Florence is 45 mins drive away. Rapolano Terme (thermal baths area) is also within 35 mins by car. Driving to the seaside (Cecina, Piombino, Castiglione della Pescaia, Marina di Grosseto) would take a little more than one hour, while ski mountains can be reached (Monte Amiata) in one an a half hour. San Giminiano, Volterra, Pienza, Montalcino, Bagno Vignoni, S.Galgano, San Quirico d'Orcia are just a few of the nice excursions within less than one hour drive. ------ GENERAL REMARKS ------ - Suitable for infants, but there are stairs between the floors - Smoking/vaping are not allowed inside the house, but it is ok to smoke/vape under the patio outside the kitchen - As required by Italian law, you will have to provide your IDs for guest registration with local authorities. - In the period 1 June - 31 August we only accept groups of minimum 6 paying guests. Smaller groups can request an offer. ------------------------------------------ CASA - VILLA x GRUPPI, AMICI, FAMIGLIE e BAMBINI: trampolino, BBQ, ping pong.
