About The Experience
This rustic villa is located in the countryside of Florence, only minutes from all the sights and activities in the historic center. This means you have easy access to the art, culture, and history Florence has to offer, while still getting a taste of country Tuscan living! Relax in the villas’ beautiful garden and fire up the grill for alfresco meals. Spend your days sightseeing, riding bikes in the countryside, and then come home to a glass of Chianti and wonderful views of the sunset.
Location Description

This villa is located in Florence’s countryside only a short distance away from the birthplace of the Renaissance—Florence. You are only 3 km from a super market and 1.9 km to shops. Florence is rich in architectural and artistic masterpieces. Visit the Piazza San Giovanni, also known as the religious heart of the city, and you’ll see the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, built in the 15th century. See the Duomo, the Academy Gallery, The Uffizi, and Palazzo Vecchio firsthand, then go shopping in one of the open-air or flea markets filled with antiques and other goods. For more high-end shopping, be sure to visit Via dei Tornabuoni.

Nearby Attractions:
The villa is only 21 km from Siena—one of Tuscany’s most renowned medieval villages. This picturesque city is a wonderfully preserved example of the Tuscan Middle Ages, and a treasure trove of gothic palaces, churches, and museums. It's also well known for its exiting bi-annual bareback horse races, the Palio, held once in July and once in August. A train station in Florence can connect you to other Tuscan cities, such as Siena or Pisa, which also prove to be convenient and enjoyable day trips away from your villa.
