What makes this farmhouse unique

San Silavestro and Leonardo da Vinci's Monna Lisa.

In 1495 the farm of San Silvestro was given as dowry by Anton Maria Gherardini to his daughter Lisa who married Francesco Bartolomeo del Giocondo.Several studies link Lisa Gherardini, the Mona Lisa for the note, to the famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa', now housed in the Louvre Museum in Paris, and that made her immortal.

Peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Tuscany. Hosts were welcoming and ensured everything was to our comfort. The kids enjoyed the spectacular pool and my wife and I had time to rest, relax and revive. The unit had everything that was needed to make it a home away from home for our little family.

Just perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a Tuscany typical, quiet and clean place to stay. And that's what we found, with a bonus : charming welcoming hosts, great sunset views, not close and not too far from highways so we can easily visit Tuscany.

Only good things to say about this place.

Thank you Andrea, say Hi to all your family.

Wir, Ehepaar mit Tante (95), verlebten eine herrliche Woche im ausgesprochen sehr liebevoll und typisch eingerichteteten Ferienhaus im Tosca Stil in Ruhe und unvergessenem Ausblick in das Chianti.

Unser Empfang war sehr herzlich und die täglichen, kleinen Kontakte zu Andrea, Martina und Gianna mit Mann äußerst angenehm.

Die Ausstattung, Sauberkeit und das Anwesen mit dem Pool lassen einen die Seele baumeln.

Die Lage ist inmitten der Toscana ideal, um die vielen Tagesziele schnell zu erreichen.

Wir danken den Gastgebern recht herzlich, auch für die frischen Eier und leckeren Kirschen und werden gerne wiederkommen . Unseren Freunden und Bekannten haben wir schon viel hierüber berichtet.

Ideal location with a stuning view over the Chianti hills. Both the accomodation and the garden (+ terrace and swiming pool) are in very very good condition. We had a very pleasant stay with our 3 young children. Andrea and Martina are very helpfull and gave us the best of local hospitality. We'd love to come back !
