                              Location

                              Just 2 km from the Superstrada linking Florence and Siena, this villa is located near Bargino and Montefiridolfi, a couple of very small villages. Grocery stores and restaurants are just a minute or two further, in San Casciano. Due to its strategic hilltop position just outside of Florence, this hilltop town was repeatedly savaged until the year 1356, when its fortifications were completed. Gradually, it began to act as a "lookout" for Florence, and finally turned into an area where rich Florentines vacationed. There aren't many "sights" here, but plenty of general services. The real treasure is in the valley below: the majestic city of Florence. World-renowned for its art and culture, go here to shop the Ponte Vecchio, marvel at the statue of David, step back in time at the Pitti Palace, or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery (remember to get tickets in advance!). Of course, you could also simply relax in the square outside the Duomo with a book or a cappuccino. ...And might we also recommend climbing something tall, to take in the wonderful views? The countryside, of course, is also fantastic for exploration: this is prime Chianti country, with fine wines, medieval villages, and rural views that just can't be beat. Nearby Attractions: Be sure to experience the wines produced by the estate in their weekly wine tastings. Further afield, there are many other opportunities for wine tasting: La Sala Winery (San Casciano), Il Solatione Winery (Mercatale Val di Pesa), Cennatoio Winery and Villa Cafaggio Winery (Panzano). In Florence, explore Bargello and the Opera del Duomo which house two of the greatest collections of sculptures in the world. Along with the top museums like Uffizi, Galleria dell'Accademia, and Museo di Palazzo Vecchio, be sure to visit the Archeological Museum, the Museum of the History of Science and the Museo Stibbert, which has a famous collection of armor.
