The villa and the tower are set inside a private 5 acres park, with formal gardens, patios and stone walking paths lined with statuary in a very peaceful position with views of the hills and the woods.

Beautiful villa in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 9 had a wonderful time in this villa. There were plenty of rooms (including the tower) so each would have their own place to hide, and there was a big dinner room where we all would meet for meals. The location was approx 20-25 mins to Florence and it provided a good base where we could explore different cities within the region. Thank you Maurizio.

Charming villa and tower

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my daughters christening near Florence and spent 9 days in this charming villa. All of our guests were extremely impressed with the accommodations. The villa and the tower are beautiful and spacious, but the grounds of the property are breathtaking and exceeded all my expectations. Both Alessandra and Maurizio are very professional and easy to deal with. We will definitely return and recommend this villa to all of our friends!

Dream Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at Torrepietro. The location is wonderful, near the gorgeous Villa Demidoff in Pratolino, and a short drive to Fiesole. It is also very easy to reach Florence: we often had dinner downtown and drove back after dinner. The Tower is beautiful and a lot of fun to stay there - I felt like a queen there. The Villa is also wonderful, with a large living room area, nice size kitchen and a big dining table in the dining room, for a very large party! The grounds are very well taken care of, and there are lots of nice places to stay during the day. We had breakfast in the Loggia, lunch in the terrace behind the Villa (or in the inside room the day it was rainy), sunbathed on the lawn, snacks and aperitifs with a glass of Prosecco under the gazebo watching the sun set!

It was a dream vacation. I will definitely come back soon!

ottimo

  • 5 of 5

Bellissima villa alle porte di Firenze.

La villa Torrepietro dista ca. 20 min. in auto da Fi ed è immersa nel verde e nel silenzio. Offre un bellissimo giardino con una torre medievale. La villa è fornita di tutto per godere di una piacevole vacanza. Molte camere da letto, grande salone e sala da pranzo. Siamo stati accolti da Alessandra che è simpaticissima e ci ha spiegato tutto garantendoci un tranquillo fine settimana in villa davanti al caminetto! Torneremo con molto piacere appena possibile.

Grazie ad Alessandra e Maurizio.

Bellissima villa e ottima location

  • 5 of 5

"Il soggiorno è stato molto piacevole per tutti i 15 ospiti della villa.

Anche la festa con 60 invitati che abbiamo organizzato per il mio 50mo compleanno ha avuto nella villa una location perfetta.

Il centro di Firenze è a soli 18 Km e questo ha consentito di poter invitare gli amici che vivono in città.

Impianti, servizi e arredo sono ottimi e adatti alla situazione.

Siamo stati accolti con molta gentilezza e per piccoli aggiustamenti logistici abbiamo avuto immediatamente assistenza.

Torneremo sicuramente."

Location

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Firenze (FLR)
Car: necessary

Torre San Pietro is located just 2 km from Pratolino (food shop and bus stop for Florence) and right across the famous Villa Demidoff park and Conference Center. It is just 18 km from the center of beautiful Florence, 13 km from Fiesole (famous for its Roman amphitheater).

Centrally positioned for day trips to well known Tuscan towns such as Pisa, Viareggio, Lucca, the Chianti region and the Mugello region, with its characteristic towns such as Vicchio (birthplace of Giotto) and Scarperia (an important medieval centre noted for its knife craftsmanship).
