Description

Bellevue is one of Tuscany's best kept secrets. Not your ordinary holiday rental, the privately owned exclusive villa is located in lovely hamlet San Donato in Collina, in the outskirts of Florence (approx 15 km). It sleeps up to 7 people in three spacious double bedrooms and one single bedroom, all air conditioned. The master bedroom and the single bedrooms have ensuite bathroom, a third bathroom is also on the first floor and a forth service bathroom (a lovely powder room with toilet and basin) is located on ground floor. Wi-fi connection is free for our guests.

This elegant Tuscan country house sits in a truly spectacular position with beautiful un-interrupted panoramic views over the Tuscan countryside. Something like a filming set, the villa dates back to the 11th century, when it was built as a Guard Tower, hence the incredible views. It is surrounded by 10 hectares of mature natural park (private) with olive groves and landscaped gardens with flowering shrubs and lemon

This elegant Tuscan country house sits in a truly spectacular position with beautiful un-interrupted panoramic views over the Tuscan countryside. Something like a filming set, the villa dates back to the 11th century, when it was built as a Guard Tower, hence the incredible views. It is surrounded by 10 hectares of mature natural park (private) with olive groves and landscaped gardens with flowering shrubs and lemon trees. This private, peaceful location offers a most romantic and secluded setting in the heart of Tuscany, yet the buzz and Renaissance vibe of Florence are only 15 km away, and we are the perfect base to, explore the Chianti region and experience the real italian life style.

Bellevue features a private salt water swimming pool pools (14 m x 8 m), a landscaped private garden designed by a famous garden designer Porcinai and a fabulous family home for relaxed holidays. Furniture and fittings are of the highest standards. Bellevue has been beautifully restored and tastefully decorated by Anna, the current owner and famous interior designer. The precious classic, antique pieces blend perfectly with modern designs (and comforts!) to create a truly elegant and welcoming space.

Belleve is arranged on two floors, over a total surface of 500 sqm (approx. 5500 sq feet), plus outdoor areas; perfect for family reunions and for a bunch of friends looking for a relaxing holiday in a luxury Tuscan country house.

On first floor there are the four bedrooms (three doubles, one single) and three spacious marble-fitted bathrooms.

On the ground floor there is a bright elegant living room/drawing room with comfy white sofas, an antique fireplace, satellite TV and large glass doors leading directly into a stunning terrace/solarium with breathtaking view of the Valley, two dining rooms, one of which particularly large and formally decorated, with a second antique fireplace, a delightful powder room with toilet and basin, and a fully equipped modern kitchen with American fridge, ice maker, 5 flames gas hob, oven, microwave and espresso machine. Next to the kitchen there is a stone paved patio area with BBQ - perfect for breakfast.

Complimentary baby bed and/or high chair will be provided on request.

The terrace and patio are equipped with elegant table and chairs - perfect to sip a Prosecco in the evening and for al fresco dining.

The interiors are tastefully decorated with original Biedermaier pieces of furniture, rare empire paintings, comfy large white sofas, magnificent mirrors and handmade linen curtains. An original stone built gothic arch dating back to the year 1200 graces the space and defines the different living areas. Floors are sand stone and the walls are finished with Venetian plaster in pastel hues.

All bedrooms are spacious, individually decorated, and furnished with exceptionally comfortable beds. The bathroom of the master bedroom is fitted with white marble and features a Jacuzzi tub and shower, rose marble is in used in other bathrooms. They all have hairdryers provided.

All the Frette bed linen and towels are top quality.

Bellevue is the ideal base to explore all the best Tuscany has to offer. The Renaissance jewels (and great shopping opportunities) of Florence are only about 15 km away. The Chianti area with Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Greve and tarditional country villages and wine farms are all within easy reach, Lucca, Pisa, and the seaside Riviera of Forte di Marmi and Viareggio are about 1,5 hr drive away!

And because we strongly believe that the more the merrier, if there is more than 7 of you, please check out Bellevue's sister house, The Orangerie. This is a completely independent villa sleeping 6, located in the same grounds as Bellevue and the two villas can be rented together for larger families/groups, taking total capacity to 13 people in 7 bedrooms (and two swimming pools!). The two villas are on the same estate but are totally independent and private (whichever villa you are in, you can't see the other) and each has own separate entrance, own private swimming pool and garden and separate parking area. Subject to availability.The Orangerie is also listed on Holiday Lettings, you can look it up by name or by property number: 6797399.

The Tuscany region

Bagno a Ripoli

Bellevue is located in a stunning position in the heart of Tuscany, secluded yet panoramic over the fantastic valley.

We are about 1 mile out of lovely small village of San Donato in Collina, immersed in the peace and beauty of olive groves and gardens, yet only about 11 miles away from beautiful Florence.

We are in the heart of the Chianti region and the location is perfect for day trips to Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Greve in Chianti and all the lovely country villages and wine farms scattered around.

Ideal for active holidays as well - the area is famous for the cycling!

And if your own private swimming pool is not enough, the seaside towns of Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio and Pietrasanta are about 80 miles (you can stop over in Pisa on your way there).

Fashionistas will love The Mall, the luxury designer outlet in Reggello, about 15 min drive from the villa.

Whatever your plans, we will be happy to advise about wine tasting tours, restaurants, golf/tennis/horse riding opportunities, cultural tours, festivals in the area and events in Florence.
