ABOUT THE LOCATION
Settignano is a picturesque borgo with spectacular views located on a hillside northeast of Florence.
Its name is famous in the whole world as it gave birth to the three main sculptors of the Florentine Renaissance: Desiderio da Settignano, Bernardo and Antonio Rossellino. The young Michelangelo lived there, in a farmhouse that is now the "Villa Michelangelo".
The location is ideal for guests who desire the best of both city and country. Nestled among the vineyards and olive groves this small village is at 6.7 km from the historic center of Florence that can be reached by bus in 15 minutes. The A 1 motorway is at a 10 minute drive, putting destinations like Siena, Chianti, Lucca, Pisa, Grosseto, within easy distance.
The gated property consists in 1.5 ha (3.70 acres) cultivated with olive trees and is accessed by a paved road.
Inside there are 3 separate units each with independent entrance plus the house of the owner. She is a famous interior designer, speaks fluent English and French and will be happy to help her guests during their stay in her property.
The houses lay in a classical Tuscan setting. Once used to store young lemon trees sapling during winter months and olives during fall crop, they are now converted into the most comfortable country homes where you can find a perfect balance between modern and traditional furniture.
The property is landscaped with flowers and herbs; the green garden is loved and looked after Fabrizio and provides fresh vegetables that are used in the kitchen. Each unit offers lovely outdoor spaces to relax or dine al fresco.
The very well behaved and peaceful dog of the owner lives in the property.
This is a no smoking property, and pets are accepted.
