This accommodation offers both rural peace and quiet but also proximity to Florence. It is a small guesthouse set in an exceptional location: next to a prominent Renaissance villa and in one of the best residential neighbourhoods of the area. South of Florence, the town is surrounded by gentle hills and cultivated fields. This quarter outside the town carries the proud name 'Poggio Imperiale' - Imperial Hill. The villa's location at the southern edge of Florence is an ideal starting point for going on excursions to the Chianti region, to Siena or to the coast, as the feeder roads to the superstrada motorway Firenze-Siena and to the autostrada highway are close by (1.5 km) and can be reached quickly without having to pass through the city centre. All necessary shops and several restaurants are only 1 km away.

Just by the way: this is where Amerigo Vespucci, the famous Florentine navigator spent his youth, before he set sail to find the New World and give it his name! An avenue of lime trees leads to this elegant 15th century villa decorated with colums and statues which sits majestically atop a hill. This elevated position allows for a beautiful view of the landscape and a pleasant, soft breeze even on hot summer days.

You will get a good night's sleep here! You live in an olive grove, far away from the bustle of the city with its humming motorbikes and honking cars. While the quiet location is far from every disturbance, it is only 3 km to the city - a distance which you could also cover by foot. There is a bus stop approximately 500 m away, and buses go to the centre regularly. The hospitable family of the house provides bikes for free upon their guests' request for biking to the bus stop or conveniently exploring the city (two bikes).

A side entrance with electronic gates leads to rear of the property. The visitor then enters a large, gravel forecourt with panoramic views of cypresses against a backdrop of hills. The Galileo guesthouse is located at the far end of the forecourt, at the panoramic sunny side of the property, about 40 m from the main villa. The apartment is housed in the former wood store of the villa, which has been recently fully renovated and turned into tastefully furnished holiday accommodation. The guesthouse has its own roof-top terrace equipped for al fresco dining. The pool with a small pool house is shared with another unit on the same esate (Amerigo Vespucci / also featured in our portfolio).

The property owner can prepare dinners for you during your stay (please request menu and price on site). The accommodation is - compared to the usual prices in Florence - very reasonably priced and exceptional too for its quiet location and excellent facilities. A noble address in Florence!
