Welcome to Residence Rocca del Palazzaccio!
We are Jennifer and Francesco, husband and wife, together we form a New Zealand-Tuscan team which manages the 8 apartments which make up the Residence located at the beginning of the Chianti area, a short distance from Florence. Located on a hillside, surrounded by greenery, the characteristic Tuscan-style apartments of the Residence are laid out over 3 levels of the building, rebuilt on the remains of an 11th century watchtower .
The apartments sleep from 2 to 6 people and each has its own kitchen, with dishwasher, 4-ring gas stove, microwave and fridge-freezer. Should you not feel like cooking though, you can dine at the nearby Restaurant Montebuoni, at a special price.
The Residence is equipped with a panoramic swimming pool (12 x 6 m - maximum depth 1,50 m - open from 01/05 to 30/09) and furnished with umbrellas, deck-loungers and chairs. We have 8 acres of woodland, perfect for pleasant walks or picnics. When in season, you can taste our kiwis and plums, or take a sprig of parsley and basil from the vege-garden to prepare your meals. We have a lovely, stone barbeque for your outside dinners.
The residence is located approximately 10 km from Florence, in the village of Tavarnuzze, with shops and services of all kinds, including the number 37 bus which departs every 15 minutes and takes you to the center of Florence in less than half an hour. The place is also ideal for excursions to Siena and the Chianti villages which are reachable by car in about half an hour.
We are here, at your disposal during your stay and we can help you with cultural and gastronomic itineraries to discover the heart of Tuscany, to book visits to the museums of Florence and to suggest restaurants serving authentic Tuscan food. Not to mention helping you out should you need to book a haircut, or find those sunglasses you left at the museum, or how to pay a parking fine…
those unexpected situations that require knowing the local language !
Prices include all utilities, linen and bath towels, a weekly cleaning service with change of linen, use of the communal washing machine with detergent provided free of charge, access to the swimming pool and access to the vege patch for tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini and lettuce when in season !
We look forward to welcoming you here into our little piece of paradise.
