Description

Enjoy noble splendour in this gracious antique villa which is both close to Florence and immersed in tranquillity.

This villa is an elegant, aristocratic, sixteenth-century country estate which once belonged to a noble family.

Complete with vaulted ceilings downstairs and chestnut coffered ones upstairs, stables, a pigeon loft and a graceful loggia on the second floor, this villa is like some thing out of a period movie.

Thanks to its valuable 18th and 19th century antique furnishings and its proximity to Florence, only 25 km, this villa is perfect for art lovers who wish to relax in a historical environment. Original frescoes and wooden coffered ceilings help to give you the feeling that you have stepped back into the annals of time.

Although it enjoys absolute seclusion, the villa is part of an active farm which produces Chianti wines, olive oil, grappa and honey (all of which can be purchased). Wine tasting and visits to the cellars can be arranged.

With in walking distance is a charming typical restaurant where local specialties are served.

Wi-Fi internet connection available.

In a little storage house in the garden, there is the boiler and the laundry.

Please note that due to it?Äôs size and disposition, this villa is not suitable for winter lets.


GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL:

The garden is vast and very private. It is shaded by centuries-old trees and graced with beautiful views of the family vineyard. Behind the house, hidden away in absolute privacy, are a spacious terrace and a broad lawn, where a barbecue and brick oven make evening meals a delight.

Nearby the villa is the private swimming pool (5 X 10 meters).

Recently built for the exclusive use of guests at the villa, it is shaded by oak and olive trees and affords wonderful views across the valley.

There is also a very old chapel on the grounds which can still be used for religious functions.
