Villa Il Forte was at the origin (century 13/14) a fortified position, elements of which have come to light, such as the colonnade surrounding the courtyard and the walls of the tower structure, elements that have made possible a particularly refined restoration and the creation of environments of charm. Even the terracotta floor is specially manufactured with a mixture of black kaolin to get the gray-brown colour to harmonize with the walls made of local stone.

Villa Il Forte is situated near to San Donato in Collina, only 14 km from Florence, well connected to many art sites, and is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and forest trees: an ideal place for a restful and cultural holiday. The villa is entirely equipped with ecological, sustainable energy sources, as solar cells for electricity and geothermal system for heating and refreshment of air.

The separate "Fitness House" with hydromassage, sauna, equipment for gym and bar, is located half way between "La Leopoldina" and "Villa Il Forte".

San Donato in Collina

The city lies on the River Arno; it is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture and, more generally, for its cultural heritage. A centre of medieval European trade and finance and one of the wealthiest cities of the time, Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance; it has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages.[4] A turbulent political history included periods of rule by the powerful Medici family, religious and republican revolution. From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the recently established Kingdom of Italy.

The historic centre of Florence attracts millions of tourists each year, and Euromonitor International ranked the city as the world's 72nd most visited in 2009, with 1.685 million visitors. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. Due to Florence's artistic and architectural heritage, it has been ranked by Forbes as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the city is noted for its history, culture, Renaissance art and architecture and monuments. The city also contains numerous museums and art galleries, such as the Uffizi Gallery and the Pitti Palace, amongst others, and still exerts an influence in the fields of art, culture and politics. Florence is also an important city in Italian fashion, as well as a major national economic centre, being a tourist and industrial hub.
