Remarkable Renaissance Villa Near Florence
"The cypress tree avenue entrance heralds the way for a distinctly Tuscan experience!” - Reviewed by Deborah
This aristocratic renaissance villa in Tuscany dating back to the 15th Century boasts a fabulous location just minutes from Florence. Charmingly camouflaged by rolling Tuscan hills and a sea of olive groves, the home spans 1,000 square meters (10,764 sqft) surrounded by formal gardens within a verdant eleven-hectare park with a lake.
Centered around an imposing paved courtyard, the renaissance style will captivate you as frescoes adorn the living areas, taking you back in time. If the grand entrance hall, living room, sitting room, studio and ballroom don’t make you feel like you are vacationing like aristocracy, then the fabulous dining room with seating for up to 20 diners will convince you. The fully equipped kitchen is equally as inviting with its Tuscan fireplace and breakfast room next door.
All but one bedroom are found on the upper floor, each continuing the aristocratic theme with the focus on comfort.
The villa is fully staffed for round-the-clock assistance by a warm and friendly resident housekeeping couple, chef and concierge service.
