Desideria offers both rural peace and quiet and proximity to Florence. The location could not be better! Located above the centre of Florence, the property is set in a classical Tuscan landscape, surrounded by olive trees. The picturesque village of Settignano is within walking distance (500 m), and the centre of Florence is just six km away. The idyllic grounds measure 3.7 acres and offer a stunning view over Florence. The property is gated and accessed by a paved road. The swimming pool has been made in 2011. The pictures date from 2011 when the pool was still under construction. In the meanwhile grass has grown around the pool.
Accommodations are in three units (Unit 1 & 2 can only be rented together), each with independent entrance and outdoor spaces to relax or dine al fresco. A well-tended garden provides fresh vegetables and overlooks the countryside and the city of Florence. The buildings were once used to store lemon trees during the winter and the olive crop in the fall. Now they have been converted into beautiful country homes with a perfect balance between modern and traditional furnishings. The owner, a well known interior designer, lives in a separate house on the property. She is fluent in English and French and is happy to help her guests during their stay on her property.
Unit 1 is located in the main house, Unit 2 and 3 are independent little houses just a few meters away. Unit 1 sleeps two and Unit 2 sleeps four people, and they can only be rented together for a total of six people. Also Unit 3 sleeps six people. A total of 12 people can be accommodated.
Settignano is a picturesque borgo northeast of Florence with spectacular views. It is located in a marvellous environment, surrounded by meadows and olive groves. A grocery shop, breakfast bar, restaurant and the bus stop are in walking distance. From here, you can take a bus into Florence in just 15 minutes. This is the right place to travel without car. In case you travel by car: The A-1 highway is a just 10-minute drive; with Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Chianti, Grosseto and many other destinations within easy reach.
