TUSCANY

From its classic detailed exteriors to its romantic elegant interiors, Villa Simonetta exudes comfort and sophistication. From here, you can reach Florence in 30 minutes by bus using the bus stop which is just a few hundred yards from the villa, or by train via the Calenzano train station, only 2.5 km from the villa. This two-story villa boasts spacious, light-filled rooms, with many original details, including beautiful antiques, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and an open-well central staircase. The private swimming pool is set in the villa’s lush enclosed garden, an ideal antidote to the summer heat.

A comfortable lounge area is set among 4,000 sq m of private park, surrounded by a privacy fence of shrubbery, perfect for shaded relaxing time or for sipping a glass of bubbly prosecco wine. Another lounge area is available near the private swimming pool (3 m x 7 m) and it sets the tone for relaxing and sunbathing in style.
An outdoor Jacuzzi hot tub with hydrotherapy allows guests to enjoy the garden in every month of the year.

Famous for its art and architecture, Florence is an obligatory destination for the first-timer visitor of Italy. However, while exploring the historical center is something that cannot be missed, the pristine studded landscapes and the enchanted medieval villages set on the famous Tuscan rolling hills surrounding Florence are well worth a visit.
The most famous area to explore is the Chianti, a blessed land that covers a rather large wine-producing region of Tuscany, reaching from Florence to Siena, and all the way out to Pisa. Chianti’s must see sights are the wine villages of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole. Along the road visit the Badia di Coltibuono and/or Castello di Brolio and do not forget to pick up some wine to enjoy at the villa!

Toscana - Tuscany

Tuscany is the place we all dream of….The place we want to retire to, and it is that place that will echo in your heart for a life time once you have stayed there and felt the essence of the organic life that passes by there each day.

With fields of sunflowers as far as they eye can see, olive groves and vineyards lining every street corner make Tuscany’s country side a picture worth painting. With its abundance of  tiny medieval towns scattered around the hills, open air markets where locals gather each Saturday morning to offer their produce such as Truffle oil, olives, chianti wine, cured meats etc makes Tuscany the perfect place to visit for those that love food, wine and history.
