Description from manager

Villa Rinascimento is a magnificent Renaissance property, originally commissioned by the marquess NiccoloÌ Antinori in the 15th century. It sits at the end of a driveway lined with cypress trees on the southern hills of Florence, just ten minutes from the city centre.

Over the centuries it has undergone numerous improvements and renovation work. Its overall Renaissance character and details sets it apart from any other villa in its category.

The layout of Villa Rinascimento is typical of aristocratic Renaissance villas. It is centered around a paved courtyard, surrounded by formal gardens and set in a productive agricultural landscape.

The villa itself measures 1000 square meters and sleeps up to fourteen guests in seven bedrooms. The two gardens on either side total 1200 square meters. And an eleven hectare park, including a lake, surrounds the property.

Villa Rinascimento belongs to the Colomboli family. Also known as Rossi D’Oltrarno this Florentine family figures in archival records since 1156.

In 1937 the villa is sold to the Küchel family. They embark on modernising the villa, adding an internal elevator.

Following the Allied Forces’ success in pushing back the German line, in 1944 the villa is requisitioned and used by American officers as their quarters.

In 1958 Villa Rinascimento is bought by Earnst and Jean Boissevain.

Restoration and maintenance works carried out in 2004 on the villa give it its current appearance.
