L'Olmo is a spacious 500-year-old Tuscan farmhouse with a private and separate owners' apartment. It has been run as a successful holiday rental business for 18 years but could also be a charming family home plus guest apartment.
Margaret and Martyn, the current owners, have built an excellent reputation with many 5 star reviews and repeat and referral clients every year. The farmhouse has 4 large living rooms, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The owners' apartment has 2 large living rooms, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The property extends to 8 acres of terraces, gardens, meadows and woodland. There is a 12 x 6 metre swimming pool close to the house. L'Olmo is situated in a spectacular rural location just 40 minutes northeast of Florence, with magnificent views and is in a private and peaceful setting.
The English owners wish to retire but are willing to participate in a transitional arrangement to ensure a smooth and successful transfer to the new owners, e.g. for an agreed period continuing to live in the apartment to manage the property plus provide ongoing marketing and practical support and advice. The house has antique Tuscan and English furniture and furnishings which could be part of the sale agreement. It has been restored to a very high quality with modern plumbing, electrics and septic systems. It has been rented as a private self-catering villa to one family or group at a time not sharing facilities. This is a very important market in Tuscany and the owners have carefully built a successful business with a solid reputation. The location near to Florence but in a less well known part of Tuscany has been a main attraction

Old properties in this area are heavily protected by planning laws but there is an old hay barn that could be developed as additional accommodation.
The holiday rental business in Italy is very competitive but there are very few properties of this size being rented as one unit.
The owners wish to retire, we are 75 and 70. We bought the house in 2000 to facilitate our transition from full-time work in London to full retirement. We would highly recommend this path for a couple seeking the same life-changing experience and a high quality lifestyle with good income.
Rental season is usually May to October.
