Description from manager

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Villa La Memma is a lovely country home set in the beautiful green hills south of Florence, brightly marked by expanses of vines and olives, and surrounded by a beautiful, lush flowering garden. The interior is finished off with light-coloured walls, alternating with shades of green that recall the surrounding nature, with hand-painted decorations and romantic floral wallpaper. The floors in bleached wood, the green of the doors, the white windows and pannelling, the country-style furnishings with their clean lines are the components that give voice to the architecture of this original Nordic-inspired cottage, cosy and welcoming. Located in the area of the Valdarno, between the ridge of Pratomagno and the nearby region of Chianti, halfway between Florence and Arezzo, and just a few kilometres from the Autostrada del Sole, the property is surrounded by a landscape among the most beautiful and fascinating of the valley, characterized by the presence of the so-called Balze (cliffs), rock erosions formed after the drying-up of a large lake that covered the valley of the Arno and which many believe to be portrayed in the backgrounds of the paintings of the great Leonardo da Vinci. From the road of Setteponti, the old road linking Arezzo and Vallombrosa, along which the property stands, depart numerous CAI (Club Alpino Italiano) paths that allow you to explore on foot, horseback or mountain bike the whole area of the Balze, dotted by many rural buildings and Romanesque churches, inluding the famous basilica of Gropina which dominates the borgo of Loro Ciuffenna, ranked among the most beautiful in Italy. Close by is the small town of Piantravigne, known as La Perla delle Balze for the wonderful panoramic views seen from its location on a natural cliff. Within the radius of a few kilometres, besides interesting tourist destinations, are a tennis court (Montalto, 3.5 km away), golf courses (Impruneta, 30 km away and Cavriglia, about 16 km away) and riding clubs (Castelfranco) for a vacation totally dedicated to relaxation, sport and exploring the artistic and environmental treasures that abound in this area.

Additional amenities include: security system, mosquito screens in the bedrooms, highchair, air conditioning in the bedrooms and in the living room on the ground floor, ceiling fans in the bedrooms on the ground floor, moka coffee machine, baby cot, iron and ironing board, american coffee machine.
