S.Andrea is a spectacular Tuscan agriturismo in the little hamlet of Fabbrica, a half an hour from Florence. Its villa complex, which dates back to medieval times sits on a strategic hilltop and has incredible views over Chianti.
Though they also have 5 rooms in the main building, the majority of its accommodation is in the form of rustic style, self-catering apartments in two separate sites each of which have gardens and outdoor swimming pools.
The surrounding 1500 acre farm produces its own Chianti Classico wine and olive oil, and their restaurant is a great introduction to traditional Tuscan, and Italian food.
You have a choice of double B&B rooms and various self catering apartments, to sleep up to six, at S.Andrea.
The apartments, as mentioned, are not at the reception building which also houses the restaurant, but in their own semi-independent renovated villas.
Both are surrounded by beautifully tended gardens and come with a pool, a barbecue and outdoor dining area, and a kid’s playground.
The style is very much traditional Tuscan with terracotta floors, wood beamed ceilings and large stone fireplaces, but with all modern conveniences.
Check out all the details on the booking page here.
They are fully self catering but guests will be very tempted to try the excellent on-site restaurant – Osteria la Capanna del Gallo, and you can also hire a private chef for your apartment.
Apart from lounging happily around the property and taking in the views, guests can partake in wine and olive oil tastings, cooking classes, tours of the farm, hire bikes (including e-bikes) or vespas, join a bike tour, and enjoy yoga, massages, reflexology and Ayurveda treatments.
Lots of off-site activities can be arranged by the hotel too such as hot air balloon rides, horse riding, tennis, wine tours and tours of Florence and Siena etc.
Villa S.Andrea dominates the ancient hamlet of Fabbrica, 10 km from San Casciano Val Di Pesa, and close to a great range of historical villages (the staff at S.Andrea will have plenty of recommendations and also offer tours) including Sant’Andrea in Percussina where you can visit the house, now a museum, where Niccolò Machiavelli wrote The Prince.
Florence is no more than a half an hour to the north while the journey south to Siena should take less than an hour.
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“We were at Villa S.Andrea for 4 days. It was an exceptional experience by all means. Beautiful location, beautiful people, beautiful scenery, beautiful area. It is a short drive from Florence and other small Tuscan towns. I would definitely come back…..”
“Villa S.Andrea simply exceeded our expectations. We were in Tuscany for the fifth time and this is how we imagine that a holiday in Tuscany should look like. The environment, breakfast and so nice staff were incredible. I would like to highlight the great Katarina, who served us breakfast and it was clear that she does her job with all her heart. At the reception we received an amazing recommendation for restaurants in the area – all TOP. Restaurant right next to the villa one of the best, at the top sunset over the Tuscan countryside..just what you want more. I recommend this accommodation to everyone and I am very demanding. We will definitely be back here…..”
