Map, Location & Local Information

Villa Bonaparte is part of a group of buildings and lands on the “Bonaparte Knoll”. It is an ancient property of the Bonaparte family in San Miniato.

In 1701, Maria Maddalena Bonaparte received the land as a dowry gift when getting married to a noble Bonaccorsi. In 1805, the country-house was given to the present owner’s family, and it still to this day maintains the historical documentation and original furniture. Today, the property has been completely restored, and it is an exclusive residence for those looking for a relaxing holiday in a historic setting.

Next to the country house are many villages rich in history and cultural sites, including fortifications and towers surrounded by evocative landscape. Thanks to Villa Bonaparte’s favourable geographic position, it is possible to reach in less than one hour all the main artistic cities of Tuscany.
