Property descriptionNot far from Florence, in the Tuscan countryside, historic villa with garden and olive grove.

The villa, located inside a characteristic Tuscan hamlet, is surrounded by a well-maintained 2,300-sqm garden with pool and restored chapel, ideal for events and ceremonies. The property is completed by 2.6 hectares of olive grove.
Services are all available in the nearby town (5km; 10’) and many of the art cities of Tuscany can be reached in less than two hours by car (Pontassieve, Firenze, San Giovanni Valdarno, Arezzo, San Gimignano, Siena, Montepulciano…). For shopping lovers, the luxury outlet The Mall is just 30 km away from the villa.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The villa (435 sqm – 4,681 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms) is laid over three floors as follows:
- Basement: living room, billiard room with fireplace and gallery, bathroom, cellar and technical room;
- Ground floor: entrance room, kitchen with fireplace and BBQ, dining room, sitting room (potentially a seventh bedroom), double bedroom and two bathrooms;
- First floor: sitting room, five bedrooms (two of which with private bathroom) and two bathrooms.
The building is the result of a careful renovation carried out on a historic villa dating back to the 12th century and owned by a noble family of Florentine merchants. The restoration aimed at preserving, wherever possible, the charm and original finishes of the building which has been however equipped with modern comforts.
Right next to the villa is the manorial chapel (25 sqm – 269 sqft), fully restored and in excellent condition.
The villa is surrounded by 2,300 sqm of garden and paved terraces overlooking the surrounding olive groves and the stunning Tuscan hills. On the lower terrace of the property, surrounded by a grassy sunbathing area surrounded by hedges, is the 12 x 4 m swimming pool with a view over the surrounding countryside.
The remaining surface, roughly 2.6 hectares, is covered by an olive grove that allows producing a small quantity of private oil. The avenue leading to the villa is not paved but in excellent condition: it braches from the paved road and runs across the olive grove before reaching the villa.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The villa was used in the past as a holiday house, capable of accommodating up to 14 guests in a very quiet context close to the most beautiful art cities of Tuscany. One could always use the building as a private house or, otherwise, restart the accommodation business. The beautiful outdoor space, made up of a very well-maintained garden, a panoramic pool area and paved terraces overlooking the Tuscan countryside, is also the perfect background for events and weddings.
