If your dreams of Tuscany feature rolling hills, olive groves, quaint farmhouses and a touch of modern luxury, look no further than Villa Oliveto. Nestled into olive groves with views of Florence in the distance, the villa has all the charm of rural Tuscany but makes a convenient base for exploring the area. And although the five-bedroom farmhouse was restored in 2008 to feature perks like its own hammam, its architecture is still beautifully traditional.
Get a glimpse of daily life in Italy as you stroll the villa’s garden, relax on the terrace, dip into the saltwater swimming pool, grill local produce on the barbecue and sip wine at the outdoor dining area while gazing at the far-off Duomo of Florence. Whether you’ve been biking in the countryside or just sampling the local gelato, treat yourself to a session in the farmhouse’s sauna and hammam and an evening in front of the home theater.
Though you can see the past of Villa Oliveto in its traditional brick floors, beamed ceilings and open-hearth fireplaces, the interiors feel bright and airy thanks to updated furniture and crisp light blue and white paint. Let yourself be charmed by the living room’s geometric-patterned rug and elaborately carved sofa table as you sink into the sleek taupe sectional. A long table, simple white chairs and a contemporary chandelier make the dining room particularly inviting, and the fully equipped kitchen has a central breakfast bar perfect for gathering around.
The bedrooms at Villa Oliveto have the same intriguing combination of soft, traditional earth-toned walls and furnishings with a slightly modern edge. There are two master suites, each with a king bed, en-suite bathroom and lounge area, and one additional bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and queen bed. The other two bedrooms have a queen bed and two twin beds, respectively, and have access to the hall bathroom.
Plan to fly into the Florence airport, which is only 10 miles from Villa Oliveto. The museums, cafes and shopping in Florence are just under 6 miles from the property, and if it’s not a holiday without golf, you’re in luck: Golf Club Ugolino is only 7 miles away. Take a day trip to San Gimignano, 35 miles away, Siena, 47 miles away, or Lucca, 55 miles away, or continue your Italian getaway in Rome, 173 miles away.
