Tradition's comfort

Nestled in a fairy-tale setting among the gentle hillsides south-west of Florence, Villa Leonina is set on a large plot of beauty and peace. It is perfect for several couples or an extended family seeking close proximity to Florence. The location could not be better. Set on an idyllic hillside just 20 minutes (14 km) from Florence, this elegant country house is within an hours drive of all of the beautiful hill towns and vineyards of Chianti. The closest village, San Donato in Collina, is 2 km away. It offers easy access to both Florence and Chianti, so you can alternate trips to the Uffizi and the Duomo with excursions to the countryside of Tuscany. San Donato has a bar, a small grocery shop with bakery, a butcher, a hairdresser, and a church. Horseback riding is found at 1 km.

A short unpaved road (500 m) leads to the farmhouse, surrounded by vineyards and olive grove; this access is not suitable for low slung cars. The house has been fully restored last year and the attention to detail and beauty is remarkable. The property includes the house (425 sqm) for 11 people, a small dependence (75 sqm) for 4 people and a large private pool which can be heated. In the garden there is a gazebo for relaxing. A terrace overlooks the Valdarno country side. It is furnished with a long table, comfortable chairs for dining al fresco. A few steps from the house is the pool, surrounded by lounge chairs and umbrellas, and a panoramic view of the gentle hills.

Inside, Villa Leonina has beautiful terracotta tile floors and beamed ceilings, and is divided into two floors. There is a total of 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms (4 with shower, 1 with bathtub and 2 with bathtub and shower) plus a small guest toilet. The bedrooms are spacious. Villa Leonina is an ecologic property as the electricity is produced by solar cells and refreshment of air and heating by geothermal energy.

Next to Villa Leonina is an other separate private villa belonging to the same owner (Villa Florence / also featured in our portfolio). The villas are close to each other, but separated by hedges and trees. Each villa has its private access, private drive way, and each villa has its own private pool. There is a separate fitness house of the estate (with hydromassage, sauna, equipment for gym and bar) with exclusive use for the first clients who reserve it.

Sightseeing

Florence

Florence, the capital city of Tuscany, will make you swoon with its art, architecture, culture and history. Some favorites are Michelangelo's David in the Accademia, the Duomo, Campanile and Bapistry, the museum of the works of the Duomo, the Palazzo Vecchio, the Bargello, San Marco with Fra Angelica's frescos, Santa Croce, and San Miniato, not to mention the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Think of Florence for leather, lace, linens, Florentine paper and paper products, wine, food and monthly rentals off season. Famous festivals are Easter and San Giovanni June 25.

Siena

This is perhaps one of the most magical cities in Tuscany. The narrow streets and squares are grouped into sixteen different neighbourhoods or 'contrade' around the shell-shaped main square, each of which has a colourful flag depicting a different symbol to which the 'contradaioli' are fanatically devoted. Each contrada sends a horse to the race, run twice or three times yearly, which is held in the main square when life in Siena comes to a standstill and the hearts of its citizens are held in thrall.

The Chianti area

The hills of Chianti, criss-crossed with vines and crested with cypress trees have become the hallmark of Tuscany, the beauty of the landscape married to a quality of life which would be rare anywhere in the world. Chiantishire, as the English call it, has an infinite variety of hil
