With a hot tub, covered gazebos, al-fresco dining areas and comfy outdoor sofas you can spend all day outside quite happily.

The area that surrounds the home is rural as the villa sits in the Chianti wine region. From the garden you will see endless vineyards and rolling fields and the nearest winery which you can visit is just 2.7km away!

When you need to pick up some groceries or want to go out for dinner then you could visit the local villages of Troghi or San Donato in Collina which are both under 3.5km away. You can find larger shops and more places to eat in Rignano sull’Arno just 6km away or Bagno a Ripoli - 8km away - and a designer shopping outlet, known for its fashion brands, 12km from the villa.

Those in search of an active day out in the stunning countryside can head out on hiking trails and bike trails around 5km away or maybe you would like to play some tennis or golf, both are available less than 10km from the villa by car. For a fun day out and a unique way to see the pretty rural surroundings, why not go out on a horse trek from the riding centre which is less than 1km away!

19km away by car you can discover the delights of the Renaissance city of Florence. The best way to see this incredible city is by taking a walking tour if you are short on time or just wish to see some hidden gems; you can choose a tour based on your own interests such as food, history or art! Make sure to visit the famous cathedral and the Palazzo Vecchio as well as some of the world-class museums and galleries. Florence also has some amazing markets, quirky independent shops and plenty of places to enjoy local Tuscan cuisine. You could finish off your day with a walk around the lush Boboli gardens where you can soak up the atmosphere amidst the sculptures and fountains.

Villa Torre Giulia is located in the green and scenic Chianti region of Tuscany. As the area is famous for wine production you will find the home sitting amongst vineyards and rolling fields, perfect for a relaxing break. When you wish to see more of the local area you will be spoiled for choice with plenty of little villages, historic towns and of course the enchanting city of Florence within easy reach.

The villa is in a wonderful location for days by the pool and getting out in nature; with a fishing lake and a horse-riding centre on your door step and bike trails and hiking routes within a 5km radius. Alternatively, if you would prefer to enjoy the great outdoors by sampling the local wines at a vineyard then there are lots nearby! Torre A Cona for example is just 2.7km away and offer wine tastings, picnics in their grounds and dinners in their charming wine cellars.

Though the house is in a country location there is a lovely restaurant just 2.2km away and further shops, cafes and restaurants in some of the nearby villages.

The closest town is Rignano sull’Arno which is a riverside town 6km from the villa and has a large supermarket and a good selection of bars and eateries, whilst Bagno a Ripoli (8km) is another nearby town worth visiting. Around 12km from the villa you can also visit The Mall, the most famous designer shopping outlet in Tuscany known for its fashion brands and is a great place for an afternoon of shopping.

The main draw to this area is of course the city of Florence which is 19km away from the villa. In just over 30-minutes you can be standing in the Piazza della Signoria taking in the views of the staggeringly beautiful architecture which surrounds you. Florence has so much to see and do that you will probably need to visit a few times to make the most of your proximity to this incredible city or book on to a guided tour. The city is easy to navigate on foot, so you can enjoy afternoons walking around the winding streets which lead out on to squares filled with vast renaissance churches and palaces.

Some of the main attractions include the Duomo di Firenze which is the breath-taking cathedral, the Palazzo Vecchio (the town hall) and The Ponte Vecchio bridge over the river. The city is also packed with outstanding art galleries, museums and gardens. After a busy day exploring you can have dinner al-fresco in one of the many pretty squares or sample some of the local gelato down by the river bank.

Additionally, you can visit Florence’s medieval town hall the Palazzo Vecchio which hosts children’s events with storytellers and historic fancy dress.

Though Florence is full of historic buildings and museums you will also find a number of lovely parks and gardens where you can stop for a picnic and let smaller children run wild before taking a spin on the stunning antique carousel in the Piazza della Republica which is magically lit up in the evening.

  • What a beautiful place to stay

    on 17/10/2023

    What a beautiful place to stay. We really enjoyed the quiet and being able to have a lot of room outside. We did a lot of day trips into Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, and Lucca. The local restaurant was great.
    Mattia and the tema were very responsive and we loved the breakfast.
    We will return. Grazie!
