Villa Description

History buffs and sun seekers alike will find plenty to love at the elegant Casa dei Frati near Florence. Parts of the property date from the 13th century, and the main villa and guest house have been renovated to preserve their original character and add modern comforts. The views are as stunning as ever, with vistas of the Mugello valley and mountains of Abetone, and now, you can enjoy them from the pool.

The villa’s stately stone walls extend around a large terrace at the back of the house, edged in lush potted plants and a vine covered trellis and furnished with a dining table and chairs and lounges. A tidy lawn leads down to the pool, where there are more chaise longues on the deck. Indoors, the villa offers decidedly 21st-century amenities like an Internet connection and mobile phone.

Though the home’s medieval past is apparent in its beamed ceilings and the living room’s large fireplace, its decor is a pleasing, updated combination of antique pieces, Persian rugs and plump floral sofas. The rustic kitchen has a stone ceiling, open wood shelving and a traditional oven, but it’s also equipped with modern features like a dishwasher and icemaker.

Casa dei Frati has two bedrooms in its main house and two bedrooms in a guest cottage. In the main house, the first bedroom has two twin beds and a shared bathroom with Jacuzzi, and the second bedroom has a double bed and en-suite bathroom. In the guest house, the first bedroom has two twin beds and the second has a double bed; they share a bathroom with a Jacuzzi. There’s also a sofa bed in the guest house if your party is large.

Do your shopping or play a game of tennis in the town of Vicchio, less than 2 miles away. Go horseback riding at the stables less than a mile away, have a swim in Lake Bilancino, 4 miles away, or play a round at the golf course 10 miles away. The Dicomano train station is just 3 miles away, but if you’d prefer to drive into the city, Florence is only 21 miles away.
