Villa Leonardo lies in a perfect geographical position, with connections to numerous places of historical, artistic and gastronomic interest through an excellent road and motorway network. The villa is easily reachable from the airports of the region, Florence is about 51 km away and Pisa 112 km away, and is also well connected to the train station of Figline Valdarno on the Rome-Florence direct line. The Incisa-Reggello exit of the A1 motorway is just 5 km away. Within a few kilometres are small villages, reference points for shopping. About 5 km away is Figline e Incisa Valdarno, located in the eastern part of the province of Florence which is about 30 km away. Incisa lies in an area that touches the Arno valley and then ascends along the slopes of the Pratomagno ridge; beyond the valley crossed by the river Arno are the Chianti hills that separate the Valdarno area from the province of Siena. Below are the famous “balze” (rocky erosions formed following the drying-up of a large lake that covered the Arno valley) that flank cultivated fields, residential areas and industrial and commercial establishments. The hilly area, cultivated with terraces, is crossed by the Setteponti road, the old route between Arezzo and Vallombrosa, along which numerous CAI (Club Alpino Italiano) paths wind through the area, allowing you to explore, on foot or by mountain bike, the entire area of the balze with its many rural buildings and Romanesque churches. The area is particularly rich in nature reserves, including the Area Naturale Protetta di Interesse Locale Foresta di Sant'Antonio (Natural Protected Area of Local Interest the Forest of Sant'Antonio), a green lung of particular relevance for the variety of botanical species and for the native fauna, and the famous Forest of Vallombrosa (with relative Abbey), a biogenetic nature reserve, rich in coniferous woods, with an experimental arboretum consisting of 3200 specimens of 1200 different species from all over the world. The park is full of streams and springs and there are numerous hiking routes and marked nature trails which can be travelled by mountain bike or on foot. Finally, just two kilometres from the property is the prestigious fashion outlet The Mall, and in less of half an hour is reachable the Prada outlet.
