Description from owner

Description

Dating back to the 15th century, this historical villa has been completely restored and refurbished. Its hilltop position ensures superlative views of Florence and the Tuscan countryside, with the city center just a 10 minutes drive away by car or 20 minutes by bus.

The Villa is nestled on top of 5 acres of private land, scattered with olive trees. All around the house, a romantic, terraced garden with ponds and fountains, lemon plants and persimmon trees, strawberry grape vine and delicate flowers.

Villa Tantafera also boasts a large indoor whirlpool (about 80 x 120 inches), heated and with a salt (no chlorine) filter, and a new dipping pool outside, in one of the garden terraces. Not a standard swimming pool but rather an enjoyable large outdoor jacuzzi-like pool with a great view of Florence.

Throughout the whole villa, with its two large living rooms, a bright oversized dining room, frescoes and fireplaces, a warm atmosphere with plenty of comfortable corners for reading, relaxing and entertaining. The spacious fully equipped kitchen connects to the rear garden for highly enjoyable al-fresco meals.

The tower section consists of an independent yet connected apartment, with its own little kitchenette.

Top-notch heating system with area thermostats, instant unlimited hot water for showers or bathtub soaks, air-conditioning and broadband internet connection.

Rates include:

- Complimentary welcome breakfast (kitchen pantry will be stocked with a small selection of teas, coffee, milk, butter, jams, cheese, eggs, yoghurt, ham, sliced bread, cereals and biscuits)

- Linens, bath towels and whirlpool towels

- Air conditioning/heating, electricity, water and kitchen gas

- WiFi broadband internet connection

- Cable TV

- Final cleaning

Please note that, thanks to a unique policy that sets us apart, we also include a 3 hours daily maid service.

To make our guests' holiday memorable and stress-free, a chef is also available (at extra cost) that would prepare dinners or organize cooking classes.

Re transportation, it is advisable to rent a car/cars or minivan (depending on the number of people), as the bus stop is not too far, but still quite a walk uphill (or downhill). 

Taxis are fairly easy to get and the ride of 10-15 minutes to get downtown would be around 15-20 euro.  Still, having your own car would give you independence and flexibility. 

Going downtown by car is not that difficult and there are different options to park in public parkings, depending on the area of destination.

In case our guests opt out of car rentals and wish for a personal driver, we can arrange for one.

“Villa Tantafera -- Perfect Tuscan Getaway!”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2014

We had a wonderful vacation at the Villa Tantafera to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday in September. There were 10 of us all together and we could have probably fit 3-4 more adults comfortably. The Villa is the absolute epitome of the Tuscan countryside with SPECTACULAR views of Florence that are literally right out of a movie. Roberto and his family have done an amazing job at balancing the 400-year old Tuscan villa experience with a modern kitchen, HUGE hot tub in the basement, and AIR-CONDITIONED bedrooms. It was absolutely perfect for our celebration which included a private chef dinner in the great dining room that overlooks the Duomo at nite. If you want a real Tuscan countryside experience that is a 10 minute drive to the heart of the city, this is the place. Spectacular views, wonderful grounds, modern amenities and A/C, and a Villa that just keeps going and going with rooms. 5 Stars and GREAT VALUE!
