This 17th-century villa is fifteen minutes from the historic centre of Florence. Once you’ve had your fill of the bustling city centre, the Uffizi and the crowded Duomo Square, it’s a delight to retreat to this ancient residential area on the edge of the city. A private pool occupies one of the natural garden terraces and the dining patios and outdoor lounges overlook the domes and towers of the Florence skyline. Those who enjoy alfresco dining can take advantage of the summer kitchen and stone grill. The decor harks back to the old world (some might say dated), and there are three comfy living rooms and a full kitchen inside.

Home truths

    The laundry facilities are in a separate garden cottage along with a WC.

    Your host can provide a cot, high chair and changing table for infants, just ask.

    The swimming pool isn't fenced. If you're bringing little ones, they'll need to be supervised at all times.

    You're on the very edge of Florence, but having a car is not necessary as there's a frequent, 15-minute bus service into the centre. There is free, on-street parking for one car if you need it and a small road to unload luggage from additional cars.

    Security cameras are in operation outside this home.
