On the green hills high above Florence

This accommodation offers both: rural peace and quiet but also proximity to Florence. The property is located in the green hills only 8 km east of Florence.

The extensive property consists of four houses, lawns and a pool. Three houses are inhabited by the family of the owner (also two dogs live on the property); furthermore, there is a guest house, which is offered here.

The independent little Girasole cottage is located close to the pool and is at a good distance from the other houses. It is perfect for a family with two children.

The interior is simple, solid and functional. There is a light-flooded, completely glazed kitchen offering views from every angle. The house is equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, dishwasher and washing machine. Downstairs there are two bedrooms with garden access: a bedroom with a double bed for parents and a room with trundle beds ideal for children or teenagers.

The floor, where the kitchen is located, opens to a private terrace equipped with table, chairs and parasol for al fresco dining. The terrace boasts wonderful views: The town is way down in the valley, the silvery Arno river meanders through it and the cathedral dome can be clearly seen, standing out against the rest of the town.

The garden is spacious. Lawns surround the various houses, the lawns gently merge into the olive groves. The pool at the far end of the garden also offers the magnificent view: through olive trees, the view sweeps over the valley to Florence. The pool is shared with the owners. The property can be reached via a 100 m long, narrow, unpaved road.

Villetta Girasole is located close to Bagno a Ripoli, just 15 minutes by car from the center of Florence. A grocery store is within easy walking distance (300 meters), and the nearest bus stop is a five-minute drive from the house. A pizzeria/restaurant is nearby - just walk 1 km down the hill.

In the nearby village of Bagno a Ripoli (about 2 km) you will find more restaurants, bars, a bank, post office, pharmacy, grocery stores and a bus stop, which is pleasant to get to Florence without a car: you can park your car in Bagno a Ripoli and then continue by bus to Florence.

Bagno a Ripoli is not only close to Florence, but also offers easy access to the Chianti region, so you can alternate trips to the Uffizi and the Duomo with excursions to the vineyards and hilltowns ofTuscan countryside. And after a long day filled with art you can return easily to your villa, where you can enjoy the rural setting cooling off and having fun at the pool.
