Overview of Villa Fico

What Oliver loves…

  • This is a very chic villa with amazing furniture and artwork.
  • The drawing room is a phenomenal place to sip a cocktail.
  • There are members of staff that pop in occasionally to keep the pool, garden and house pristine.

What you should know…

  • One of the bedrooms does not have an en-suite bathroom.

Villa Fico is a luxury villa rental in Tuscany offering the experience of a lifetime. The villa sleeps 7 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 white umbrellas.

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.
