Villa Near Castelfiorentino – Tuscany
Situated on a Tuscan hilltop amidst the rolling, vine and olive tree strewn hills around the town of Castelfiorentino lies this beautiful villa, just 30 minute drive from Florence.
This typically grand, Florentine-style residential complex comprises of a main building with a Baroque-façade where the living quarters are located, flanked by a tall medieval brick tower on one side and a little chapel dating to the 13th century on the other.
Originally built in 1210, it was a fortified “borgo” and in fact it still retained its farm and granary until the renovations in the late 1940s. The only parts remaining of the original fortified castle and the adjacent buildings are the surrounding defensive walls and the tower. This brick tower still stands proudly today (albeit slightly leaning) and, flanked by a huge ancient pine tree, offers dramatic views of the undulating, fertile countryside below, as far as the towered town of San Gimignano which is just visible on the horizon. The recent restoration of this prestigious residence has brought back to life its ancient splendor without having altered its architectural characteristics, while at the same time enriching it with all the modern conveniences.
There are many famous sights within short driving distances, including San Gimagnano, which is well worth a visit. Many activities can all be arranged locally. The Villa has a resident caretaker and cook, and your every need will be pampered to by your personal host.
Car hire is essential for this property. The property is ideal for children.
The Villa can accommodate 12 people and is within easy reach of Florence, San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa and Lucca for those who want to explore the beautiful surroundings.
