Villa Description

Situated on the hill of Poggio Imperiale, overlooking the historic center of Florence, the four-bedroom La Fiorentina offers a quiet country retreat that’s just minutes from the city. Though parts of the villa date back to the 16th century, it combines the elegance of traditional Tuscan style with modern amenities like an updated kitchen.

La Fiorentina was originally two buildings: a manor and a farmhouse. They were joined in 1840, but the property retains the feel of a historic Florentine villa. Stroll through the surrounding olive groves, stands of fruit trees and tall cypresses, spend an afternoon on a chaise longue on the lawn or dine alfresco on the outdoor terrace overlooking the inground pool. Despite the villa’s traditional feel, it has plenty of modern perks, like satellite TV and Wi-Fi access.

The villa’s interiors have charming nods to its past, like stone arches and beamed ceilings. The living room boasts a corner fireplace and opens directly to the terrace, from which the pool is just steps away. Enjoy meals outdoors or in the formal dining room, or in the modern eat-in kitchen, which is fully equipped and has cheery yellow millwork that echoes the sunshine outside.

La Fiorentina’s five bedrooms can sleep up to ten guests. The master suite has a queen bed, en-suite bathroom and air conditioning. A second bedroom has a queen size bed and air conditioning, and shares a bathroom with a room with two twin beds. The fourth and fifth bedrooms each have a queen size bed, private bathroom and air conditioning.

Though the villa has views of the garden and the hills around the city, it’s just a ten-minute drive from the world-class museums, shopping and restaurants of downtown Florence. Take a day trip to see the medieval architecture of Siena, 43 miles away, or go wine tasting in the Chianti region, 45 miles away. A bit farther on, you’ll find Lucca, 51 miles away, and Pisa, 56 miles away.

What to do in the Florence region of Tuscany?

Surrounded by hills, Florence rises on the banks of the Arno River. One of the greatest art centers of Italy, Florence is home to the Accademia, where you can view Michelangelo's "David", as well as the Uffizi gallery, arguably the most important art gallery in the world. Tour the cathedral with its pink, white and green marble façade and marvel at its remarkable Duomo by Brunelleschi and the gold Paradise door of the Baptistry. Continue to the Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of Florence since the 1300s, then stroll the charming shops of Ponte Vecchio. Florence offers some of Italy's best shopping—textiles, leather goods, fashion, jewelry and ceramics are all specialties. There is nothing like enjoying a morning coffee and truffle panini at the celebrated Procacci bar before setting out for a serious morning of shopping in Via Tournabuoni. Scour the Gucci, Armani and Yves Saint Laurent outlets on the outskirts of the city.

For those wishing to explore some of Tuscany's other treasures, Florence is an ideal base of operations. Tuscany stretches along the western coast of Italy from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea—one of the best ways to see the region is by automobile. The small fortress cities are within easy driving distance of one another, and each offers its own special appeal, from San Gimignano to Pienza. Other cities to include in your excursion are Arezzo, with its grand plaza and Roman amphitheater, Lucca, with its olive groves and impressive Renaissance walls, and seaside resorts like Viareggio, Elba, and Forte de Marmi.

Siena and Pisa, both also important art cities, are also not to be missed. Siena is a beautifully preserved medieval city, constructed of checkerboard brick, and crowned by its Duomo. It was the seat of the Ghibellines who often crossed swords with the Florentine Guelfs during the 13th century. Other highlights of Siena include the beautiful Piazza del Campo, and the tower rising from the Palazzo Pubblico. A day trip to the lovely ancient city of Pisa is also a must, where you can see the famous leaning tower, and much more.
