Wonderful historic residence from the 1600s that belonged to one of the most influential patrician families in Florence. The villa of about 2500 square meters is immersed in its park of over 5000 square meters embellished by the large private swimming pool in travertine and the majestic depandace. In 2001 the current owners began a restoration work aimed at preserving the characteristics of the original structure, the result obtained is incredibly precious and beautiful.
Located in a strategic position to reach all services and a short distance from the famous Terme di Montecatini and at the same time at the same distance from the great cultural capitals such as Florence and Pisa, which are about 45 minutes by car. In less than half an hour you can reach the airports of Pisa and Florence. Immersed in the quiet of the Tuscan countryside, the villa offers maximum privacy and tranquillity.
Leaving the main street, you reach the imposing private gate that opens the doors of this wonderful historic home to us. The main villa of about 2500 square meters has three floors. The ground floor is a succession of large and bright halls with high ceilings, the well-equipped kitchen is able to comfortably accommodate the whole family, a study area and a bar complete this part of the historic home. On the first, second and third floor there is the sleeping area with its eighteen wonderful and large bedrooms each with its own comfortable private bathroom. A short distance from the main villa there is an old barn transformed into a residential area for guests. The large heights also characterize this part where a large living and sleeping area has been inserted.
Walking in the large Italian garden, among the shadows of cypresses and mulberry trees, it is easy to find your own serenity, water games and wonderful perfectly preserved ancient statues are the background to natural paths where flowers and fruit trees create patches of lovely color. The swimming pool is completely surrounded by the hills of the Val di Nievole and, during the summer months, it is nice to spend long hours relaxing on the solarium. Large covered spaces are equipped for dining in the shade of the ancient trees that expertly planted create a very pleasant atmosphere
State and finishes
Elegance never becomes pomp, it is the measured luxury of a welcoming and warm historic residence. In the rooms, small details tell the story of this residence in harmony with past and present. The warm wood has been placed on the ground in the rooms, the exposed beams and the ancient fireplaces evoke magical atmospheres. The ancient terracotta floors for the living area, the marble and the natural lime workmanship, blend perfectly with modern services and comforts. The facade is perfectly plastered but also the native stone has been used internally and externally.
The historic villa is suitable as a representative residence but also as a main residence able to accommodate a family wishing to live in a sophisticated but also practical and functional environment close to all the main services. Also perfect as a luxury hotel of the highest level for a demanding clients in search of history and comfort.
