Here you will experience a new way of being on vacation. The family motto of the villa's owner, a famous Florentine interior designer is: "make our guests feel that they are at home".

You will be spoiled and looked after by a helpful staff, a dinner prepared in the tranquility of the villa. You are sure to experience an especially memorable holiday in an area like Florence rich with history. And, more specifically, in fascinating surroundings, immersed in a fairy-tale garden, amidst the violet of the iris and the red and white of the rose gardens, - carefully designed by a Noted architect, Porcinai - which can be admired from the bedrooms and from the whole house for each level of the house there is a large terrace/solarium, also ideal for taking a view to the horizon. Swimming pool ( 8 x 14 m) with a panoramic view of the valley.

A gazebo provides the perfect area for outdoor dining or for simply spending an evening in the fresh air enjoying one of the spectacular sunsets that this valley offers – its picture perfect vistas appearing to be the artifice of an expert hand. Once the sun has set, you will be left with only stars to keep you company, along with, perhaps, the humming of cicadas on summer nights; timeless and simple elements that in this marvelous setting add to the magic which dilates the senses and sharpens memory, aiding to capture a never-to-be-forgotten moment. The place is also ideal for families with children who can play on the lawn benefiting from the healthy countryside air.

The interior of the villa has been tastefully renovated to create a bright atmosphere, admirably fusing the classical with the modern, while fully respecting Italian cultural tradition. The bedrooms, naturally bright and endowed with large drapes, are decorated in Tuscan style with all modern facilities. The interior of the villa (500mq) is characterized by an exclusive atmosphere, bright and welcoming, decorated with special Biedermaier attention being made to elegance and comfort. Recently remodeled preserving all the traditional Tuscan elements but without sacrificing any modern comforts, this residence presents the perfect mix of functional elegance and careful conservation.
The red edifice, with its generous windows and large shade trees surrounding it, makes guests feel completely at ease, immersed in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

Ground Floor: Dining room with a very charming atmosphere, the antic crystal chandelier and the big dining table invites you for savouring delightful meals. The generous living room furnished with big white sofas, beautiful hand-made white linen curtains, precious Biedermaier paintings and mirrors and an opened marble fire place, goes directly to a large terrace overlooking an amazing scenery offering the view of the ancient watch-tower appreciating a breathtaking moment. A lovely hand-painted trompe l’œil breakfast room, where the eye dances over delightful touches. Powder room (toilette and hand-wash).

First Floor: 4 Individually styled bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms; 3 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom, 3 of these have air-conditioning. The master bedroom has a white hand-made marble bathroom with Jacuzzi tube, the second double bedroom has a Portugal rose marble bathroom with hand-painted trompe l’œil. And the others two single bedrooms share a bathroom with Jacuzzi shower.

  • 4.7/5 I rented this villa for my family and had a great experience. Everybody, including my children, had a nice time and they always ask me to go back. We visited many cities in Tuscany and especially Florence was really near and we had no problems with reaching it. The swimming pool has been the hit of the summer and we really had a great time. I also would like to thank the staff of Windows on Tuscany that helped me booking! I will be back for sure!
  • 4.1/5 Great location with a breathtaking view. Very elegant and well equipped property. When we arrived Anna, the owner was very friendly and helpful, the villa was perfectly clean. We will surely come back next year.
