Description from manager

This villa, located only 14 km from Florence, is well suited for a large group. It is also close to the small village of San Donato in Collina. Part of the villa dates back to the 13th century, but there are modern comforts throughout, including several bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The private swimming pool and beautiful garden add to the experience and invite all who stay to enjoy the natural beauty of this Italian villa in the Florentine hills.

This large property, located in a panoramic position overlooking the hills of Florence and a small lake, consists of 3 parts, the oldest of which was built in the 13th century and was used as a resting place by pilgrims. The garden is accessible from the main entrance and also from a large veranda furnished for outdoor dining. The private swimming pool (4m x 15m) is located in the higher part of the garden, where there is also a changing room and shower room.

About the area

<p>This property is located 2 km from San Donato in Collina, a typical small Italian village with markets, cafes, and a post office. Due to its location in the Florentine hills, it is only about 15-minute drive to Florence (depending upon traffic!), a city 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 (the Duomo), built in the 15th century. Other attractions include the Ponte Vecchio where you can go shopping, the Accademia with the famous sculpture of David, and of course the Uffizi Gallery. The centrally located train station provides for easy train access to Siena, Lucca and Pisa for the day. </p> Florence (Center): 14 km/9 mi<br/> Florence Motorway: 12 km/7 mi<br/> Incisa: 11 km/7 mi<br/> San Donato in Collina: 2 km/1 mi
