Overview

The history of this villa is also the history of the Fiorentina family who have lived there for nine generations. Ancient tower house from 1200 was transformed by the family into a Villa in the eighteenth century and used as a country residence where the family gathered during the summer. The recent restoration has brought to light the ancient splendor of the interior rooms, almost all frescoed, which make the atmosphere refined but at the same time warm and familiar. A conservative restoration but associated with the most modern technologies that gives the opportunity to experience a piece of history...

with all the comforts of the present.

The Park

The villa is located in a quiet place where the days are regulated by the rhythms of the seasons and the surrounding nature. The park of centuries-old holm oaks, the Italian-style garden scented with roses and lavender, with the luxuriant lemon trees and the ordered bush hedges, the garden with its seasonal vegetables, fragrant fruits and aromatic herbs, the hectares of olive groves and vineyards that host a protected repopulation area where, depending on the time and season, you can observe and appreciate pheasants, squirrels, fallow deer, and nocturnal birds of prey living freely. you can the swimming pool, which was built on a natural terrace, with a view on the Tuscan hills. The beautiful panoramic swimming pool offers pleasure and relief on hot summer days.

The property lends itself to being used both as an important private home and as a place to carry out a tourist-accommodation activity, both for its structure but above all for the barycentric position between Florence and the heart of Chianti.

The property is spread over two levels, on the ground floor we find all the services and representation areas: the kitchen, the large dining room, four frescoed halls, a study, and a bedroom with bathroom. The lounges face south on the panoramic garden over the valley and the swimming pool. On the first floor there are 13 bedrooms, almost all with bathrooms, some with a small living room or wardrobe. On the ground floor we find a delightful little church. The cellar is precious and has remained intact in its original state.
