Villa Description

Tucked into a cluster of homes on a hilltop, La Giara is a villa with gorgeous views and a long history. Dating from the 12th century, the villa was once the summer residence of the Bishop of Florence. Over the centuries, it’s been expanded and renovated, and today is a rustic-style five-bedroom retreat with traditional decor, beautiful outdoor spaces and modern amenities.

The villa’s living spaces open to a gravel terrace, which has an outdoor dining area, panoramic views and a constant refreshing breeze. Bring a book or picnic outside and enjoy in the shade of the trees or umbrellas, or stroll the terraced garden down to the pool deck, which is furnished with loungers and side tables. Walking a bit further, you’ll find fruit and olive trees, as well as a vegetable garden. Inside, La Giara is well-equipped for relaxing with a wine cellar, Wi-Fi access and a ping-pong table.

While the property still has features like marble-edged fireplaces and tile floors, its walls have been updated with a soft, pastel-tinged palette and painted accents. The furniture is a comfortable, cheerful mix, from a plush red sofa and cream-colored armchairs to woven mid century-style lounge chairs and canvas campaign chairs. In the dining room, Louis Ghost chairs are a surprising modern touch, while the fully equipped kitchen has a more casual farmhouse-style table and benches.

La Giara’s five bedrooms are decorated with the same charm; keep an eye out in the pretty trompe l’oeil wall paintings for hidden doors. There are two bedrooms with double beds and en-suite bathrooms, one bedroom with a French bed and en-suite bathroom, and one bedroom with a double bed that has a guest bathroom. The fifth bedroom has a double bed, bathroom and access to a studio with a single bed.

The villa is surrounded by quiet streets perfect for walking or cycling. By car, it’s just 3 miles to the grocery store, the Sieci train station and the town of Molino del Piano. There’s a restaurant in Pontassieve, 6 miles away, but the dining, shopping and museums of Florence are only 10 miles away. You’ll find the Ugolino Florence golf course about 12 miles away, and the Florence airport about 22 miles away.
