The wing of this large villa measures approximately 300 square meters, is situated in the hills above the Arno valley and has been completely renovated restoring its ancient charm. This ancient residence brings its guests back in time to when these kind of houses were once used, not only during harvest time, but also as a residence during the hot summer months. The other wing of the residence has been transformed into apartments which are completely detached from the villa. Excellent for groups of friends or families with children who wish to experience all the freedom that living in the countryside can offer. For those who love the cities of art, Florence, Siena and Vinci (hometown of the great Leonardo Da Vinci) are all easy to reach.
