Property description

Romantic, peaceful, cozy and charming ambience with yet modern comforts and amenities are the things my guests appreciate more about my Villa. Even with a bit of steps between the different floors...
Dating back to the 15th century, this historical villa has been recently restored and refurbished from top to bottom. Its hilltop position ensures superlative views of Florence and the Tuscan countryside, with the city center just a 10 minutes drive away by car or 20 minutes by bus.

In addition to the large indoor heated whirlpool (about 80 x 120 inches) our guests will be able to enjoy the new dipping pool we created in one of the garden terraces. Not a standard swimming pool but rather an enjoyable large outdoor jacuzzi-like pool (160 x 150 inches) with a great view of Florence.

The Villa is nestled on top of 5 acres of private land, scattered with olive trees. All around the house, a terraced garden with ponds and fountains, lemon plants and persimmon trees.
