The Tuscany region

All the main art cities of Tuscany (Pisa, Siena, Arezzo, San Gimignano) are within 1 hour driving.

Florence is a World Heritage Site.

According to statistic produced by UNESCO 60% of the world's most important works of art are located in Italy and approximately half of these are in Florence.

If you travel by car the villa's location at the south-eastern edge of Florence is a good starting point for going on excursions to the Chianti region, to Siena or to the coast, as the feeder road to the autostrada highway (exit Firenze-Sud) is only 3 km distant and can be reached easily without having to pass through the city centre.

Florence

Here you live in a green resort, far away from the bustle of the city with its humming motorbikes and honking cars. While the location is far from disturbance, it is only a short bus ride into the city.

All museums are within easy reach, as are the nearby small towns of Fiesole and Settignano. The hill of Settignano, just behind the estate, preserves some of the most attractive Florentine villas. Wonderful walks lead towards Settignano, Corbignano and, through of wood of cypresses, as so far as Fiesole.

It was in these hills designed by man that Giovanni Boccaccio, Desiderio da Settignano, Bernardo and Antonio Rossellino, Michelangelo, Leigh Hunt, Charles Armitage Brown, Janet Ross, Edward Hutton, Mark Twain, Niccolò Tommaseo, Gabriele D'Annunzio, Bernardo Barenson and many others found their inspiration.

5/5

"In Florence but like being in the country"

A small chapel, part of a large villa, converted into an apartment. Charming and beautifully furnished, although small and therefore a bit basic in some things. Beautiful grounds of the estate to walk in - you would scarcely realise that you are only a few km from central Florence except that you can see the duomo from near the front door. Only a 7 minute walk to the bus stop and 15-20 minutes by bus to the city. An excellent choice to stay.
