Property description

Only one mile from Porta Romana Square (Piazzale di Porta Romana), a historical gate into the heart of the city of Florence, this beautiful typical Florentine villa dates back to the XVth century and is ideally located 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 historical 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 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 from our villa, as it is only about 0.4 mile away. At the same location of the bus stop there is also a few groceries stores, take-out places, restaurants/pizzerias, a pharmacy, etc..

The villa has been recently completely renovated and comes with two different setups available for rent:

The first setup, (for up to 6 guests), features:
3 double bedrooms (master bedroom with attached walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi tub), 3 bathrooms (of which 2 en-suite), living room with 32' lcd tv and sky satellite tv channels, dining room, fully furnished kitchen, private garden with teak wood table and outdoors rattan chairs, small laundry room with washer/dryer, gated parking and private swimming pool (size: 36 x 18 feet).

The second setup, (for up to 8 guests), features:
4 double bedrooms (master bedroom with attached walk-in closet and en-suite jacuzzi tub), 4 bathrooms (of which 2 en-suites), living room with 32' lcd tv and sky satellite tv channels, dining room, fully furnished kitchen, private garden with teak wood table and rattan outdoors chairs, small laundry room, gated parking and private swimming pool (size: 36 x 18 feet).

Prices are all inclusive: 2 hrs. of daily housekeeping 5 times a week, 2 weekly towel changes, 1 weekly linens change, wi-fi internet connection, satellite tv, air conditioning, private swimming pool, private garden, gated parking.

On demand we can also have a cook available to prepare either breakfast, lunch or dinner directly at the villa for our guests.
