About The Experience
Is anything better than an historic, well-appointed villa with a tower bedroom and a wine cellar? How about a villa that is just twenty minutes from Florence with a bus stop right out your front door? A wonderful choice for large groups, this seven bedroom villa has several equipped outdoor spaces for lounging and dining and a private swimming pool within a landscaped garden. Ideal for visiting the Chianti region, day trips may include San Gimignano and Siena.
Location Description
This villa is located one kilometer from the small village of Grassina Ponte a Erna. This village has some basic services included a grocery store, bank, post office, a bar, and some restaurants. The birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Florence, is 20 kilometers away and can be reached by car or the bus, with a bus stop being just 100 meters from this villa. 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 David or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery. 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.

A large lawn and garden have a big oak tree and fig tree. There are two outdoor areas for lounging or dining al fresco; one in the front, where there are two galleries, or arcades, and another area in front of the entrance to the first floor. 100 meters from the villa is a bus stop that will take your group to Florence, just twenty minutes away. There is parking for several cars.
