Property description

Only one mile from Porta Romana square (Piazzale di Porta Romana), a historical gate into the city of Florence, this beautiful typical Florentine villa is situated on the hill of 'Poggio Imperiale', immersed into the beauty of the Tuscan countryside surrounded by olive groves, gardens and fruit trees. The property looks out onto the beautiful Florentine hillside as well as Villa del Poggio Imperiale - from 1737 to 1860 residence of the 'Lorena' family, the Austrian Granddukes of Tuscany - and the Arcetri observatory where Galileo Galilei continued his astronomical research after being called to Florence in 1610 by Cosimo II dei Medici.

Location details: The villa is located only about one mile away from where the historic district of the city of Florence begins (Porta Romana square). The city center is thus easily and quickly accessible either by bus, taxi or rental car. The 'heart' of the city center, such as the world renowned Ponte Vecchio bridge and the Uffizi museum are only about 3 km (1.9 miles) away. The main train station (Santa Maria Novella) and Piazza Duomo only 4 km (2.4 miles) away.

The nearest bus station is within walking distance as it is only about 0.4 mile away from the villa. At the same location of the bus station there is also a few groceries stores, take out places, restaurant/pizzeria, pharmacy, etc.. Taxi service works very well too, as it only takes a few minutes to come and go from the heart of the historic district of the city to the villa.


Our prices are all inclusive: 3 hrs. daily housekeeping 5 times a week, 3 weekly towel changes, 1 weekly linens change, satellite tv, wireless internet connection, final cleaning, gated parking, private garden and private swimming pool.

The Villa estate has recently been fully remodeled and restored.

Rooms description: 4 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom, 4 bathrooms (3 of them with shower stall, master bathroom with both tub and separate shower stall), dining room, fully furnished kitchen, living room with fireplace and 32' LCD TV and SKY satellite channels, office room, laundry room (with washer and dryer), terrace overlooking the pool and garden with new outdoors rattan furniture chairs and teak (wooden) table. Recently, a big awning with electronic switch was added to the terrace so that it can be entirely covered to protect from the sun.
On request there is also a full sofa-bed (with regular mattress) available at the villa for the eventual 10th guest.
