About The Experience

This villa overlooks the Tuscan countryside and offers beautiful views, particularly from the rooftop terrace. It’s within walking distance of a small village with a grocery store, café, pizzeria, and gas station. Best of all, it is a short bus ride (5-minute walk to the bus stop) to both Florence and Fiesole!

Location Description
The villa is located 100 meters from a restaurant and 200 meters from the village of La Lastra where there is a grocery store, café, post office, and gas station. The charming town of Fiesole is 3km away, and Florence, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, is only 4km away. See the Duomo, the Academy Gallery, 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. Don’t forget to marvel at the statue of Davide or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery either! 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.

Nearby Attractions: La Lastra (grocery store, café, post office, gas station), Florence (historical monuments, shops, restaurants), Ugolino Golf Club.
