Local things to do.
The property is a two minute walk from the village of Osteria Nuova (a bar/deli, pizzeria and bus stop), with a local restaurant with good food conveniently situated only 5 minutes walk away.
The larger village of Antella is 3k away, offering a variety of food shops, a supermarket, 3 bakeries, 2 butchers, farmacy, wine shop, a bar providing delicious home made ice-cream and a Thursday market.
Florence itself is a 20 minute drive away or a 30 minute bus ride away. The rest of Tuscany is within easy reach. Sightsee by day and enjoy the house by night.
Antella has 3 tennis courts. Ask us for details on how to reserve a court.
Every Thursday morning 9.00-13.00 Antella has a market. The main street is lined with stalls selling fruit, vegetables, plants, clothes, irresistible kitchen utensils and crockery, bedspreads and cheese. Our favourites are the cheese stall and the roast chicken van roasting chicken on a spit on the spot - dont forget chips and polenta while you're there!
The house is ideally located for discovering the rest of Tuscany. Take day trips to Siena, San Gimignano, Chianti, Arezzo or Lucca or focus on Florence and sitting by the pool.
