Villa Fico is a luxury villa rental in Tuscany offering the experience of a lifetime. The villa sleeps 6 people and is furnished to the highest standard of luxury. It perfectly balances contemporary quality and comfort while maintaining its original charm.

The interior of the villa has been tastefully renovated to create a bright atmosphere, fusing the classical with the modern. It was decorated with excellent taste by a famous Italian interior and art designer. Pictures cannot convey the breathtaking beauty in every corner of the property.

The villa’s first stone was laid in 1100 A.D., and the interiors were updated with extremely high standards. They have real Biedermaier furnishings along with rare empire paintings, comfortable large white sofas and handmade linen curtains. The original interior is graced with a Gothic arch separating the different living areas. Sand stone floors, walls painted in Venetian plaster, pastel hues and sophisticated antique furnishings complete the stunning scene. There is a relaxed, fresh atmosphere throughout the villa. 

Each bedroom offers guests a private, spacious and finely decorated bathroom.

The modern outdoor furnished areas are perfect spaces to relax. The garden is filled with precious handmade terracotta vases, a huge salt water swimming pool, comfortable loungers with white seat cushions and parasols.

Outside is the ideal setting for enjoying a moment in the shade, and al fresco dining is possible in the several terraces around the house. Enjoy sipping a good Chianti, savouring a meal of local specialties or just relaxing and having fun with friends. For more active-minded guests, an invigorating swim or a walk through the splendid Tuscan countryside can end a perfect day.

Reviews

  • What a very special place!

    Created on 18/08/2019

    What a very special place! One of the favorite holiday homes we have ever rented due to the owner’s warmth, the incredible view, luxury sheets and beds and the art, overall estate and gardens filled with all sorts of fruits, vegetables and herbs. It was a time we will never forget. Certainly a special home for discerning guests and not likely one that would normally be rented.

  • Exquisite!!

    on 14/08/2019

    One of the best holiday houses we have ever enjoyed. The grounds were immaculate and filled with fruits and vegetables. The art was beautiful throughout. The artwork was exquisite!
