Originally a 13th-14th century fort, this restored holiday villa in Tuscany in the Valdarno valley now provides a luxury, eco-friendly retreat or venue for up to 16 guests.

Divided into two properties, the estate is tastefully decorated with a blend of modern and traditional features, with period furnishings throughout. The main villa includes six sizeable bedrooms with en suite baths, some with private lounges, a gorgeous modern kitchen, and multiple dining and lounge spaces to gather the group. Guests can enjoy access to a fitness room with a sauna and Jacuzzi, as well as a spacious living area that’s easily convertible for conferences.

The annex consists of two additional bedrooms, and is warmly inviting with its wood burning porcelain stove and cozy living room.

Surrounded by olive plantations, vineyards, and forests, the estate grounds are prefect for entertaining, with a BBQ and pizza oven, large patio and pergola with valley views, and a sparkling pool.

While in a peaceful rural location, the villa is just 14km from the cultural centre of Florence. Be sure to stop by La Bottega in nearby San Donato in Collina for local delicacies – from delicious cured meats and regional wine, to house made focacci. 

***For larger parties it is possible to rent sister properties Casa Spino (sleeps up to 12 guests) and Villa Leopolda (sleeps up to 15 guests) located in the same estate - please follow links for more information.
