Description

Florence Renaissance villa with pool and views for vacation - This is a classic Renaissance villa situated in the prestigious Arcetri area of the Florentine hills, less than two miles from the renowned Piazzale Michelangelo. Since its construction in 1428, this villa has been the country residence of wealthy and influential families. Later on, many artists and writers came to find inspiration among these peaceful hills; among them D.H. Lawrence, Oscar Wilde, E.M. Forster and Henry James, just to name a few.

Original doors and windows, family seals and works of art date back to the very foundation of this villa and still contribute to the property’s authentic charm. The spacious bedrooms are understated and elegant with antique furnishings. The garden is typically Tuscan with imposing Cypress trees at the entrance and a lovely outdoor covered terrace with comfortable seating. Views of the Duomo can be seen from parts of the property, but a 30 minute walk down to Piazzale Michelangelo rewards you with the most spectacular view across the city, Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio.  In 50 minutes you can walk into the heart of the City.

As you wander through the lanes and piazzas of this remarkable town you will discover Florence’s many facets; opulent buildings, stunning churches, art galleries, aristocratic villas with manicured gardens, medieval town houses with loggias and balconies, small markets and artisans' workshops. Pavement cafes are everywhere and provide an excellent excuse to stop for a break with a cappuccino and a freshly baked pastry. Visit one of the daily markets to find good quality leather goods, hand-painted majolica tiles and local delicacies. A stroll along the bank of the river Arno, after a traditional Tuscan dinner in a 'taverna' or 'osteria', would be a perfect way to end a day in this splendid city.
