Just North of Florence and set in a picturesque mountain village, Il Canto is an elegant and distinguished villa, decorated in a beautiful country style and featuring a private chapel. The entrance overlooks a stately courtyard with stone patios, and decorative hedge and lawn arrangements. You’ll find another paved courtyard to the rear of the property. This boasts a sheltered pergola, furnished with 10 chairs, a bench and a pizza oven – perfect for outdoor gatherings. Nearby, there is a garden set on two levels. On the lower level, you’ll find the pool, and on the upper level there is a wide stretch of lawn augmented by trees. Both feature great views of the hills and valleys.
The interior design combines the homely rustic atmosphere of a farmhouse, with the tasteful chic of a neat city apartment. The lounge is a cosy and comfortable space, and is adjoined to a handsome dining area with a dark-wood table and chairs. Meanwhile, there is also a peaceful library area for reading and studying. The entire house is decorated with a sophisticated eye for detail and aesthetics. It’s easy to feel at home in a place like this – so full of warmth and character.

With a majestic view of the mountains, and with plenty of space inside and out, Il Canto is a classy and practical property within easy driving distance of shops and restaurants. The pergola and patio at the rear is an ideal place to hold gatherings and barbeques, while the pool and garden areas are perfect for relaxing in the Tuscan sunshine. It’s hard to talk about Il Canto without mentioning the chapel – an exquisite enclosed structure beside the entrance housing an astounding private display of religious regalia. It’s a wonderful place to enjoy seclusion and peace. Then again, the same can be said about the rest of the villa. Outstanding all round.
