Villa Astra dates back to the 15th century and it was recently restored and transformed into an exquisite independent villa for up to 8 people. This beautiful three-story property is nestled in an exclusive estate boasting an impeccable manicured park (5000 sqf) which includes other villas as well. It can be rented alone or together with other houses to accommodate large parties or special reunions. While the villa is irresistibly cozy, it is also unmistakably Tuscan and this quality alone coupled with its sought-after location near Florence - only 25 minutes by car or 40 minutes by train - makes Villa Astra a picture-postcard escape. The entrance hall welcomes you and leads onto the elegant large communal spaces: the inviting sitting room with flat screen satellite TV, large fireplace and plush sofas, and a separate formal dining room with a blown glass chandelier. These eclectic spaces fizz with life and personality and feature designer fabrics, beautiful rugs, high quality furniture and antiques, all perfectly blended. A fully equipped Tuscan kitchen completes this floor. Private swimming pool 150 meters from the villa, sundeck with expansive gazebo to provide shade during the hot summer hours and refrigerator to keep beverages chilled while sunbathing, loggia for dining al fresco, walk trials within the estate, private manicured garden, private parking. By entering Villa Astra you will find the perfect harmony between comfort, elegance and ease, the ideal combination for your perfect Tuscan getaway.
