Highlights

  • Hide away in a hand-restored villa nestled in the rolling Tuscan hills with spectacular views of the surrounding nature and beauty of the city of Florence
  • The outdoor terrace facing the Dome is perfect to enjoy a healthy breakfast and lunch, at the same time a candlelit dinner with views over the city cannot be missed

This lovingly restored 15th-century villa, with its frescoed ceilings, antique bathtubs and valuable works of art, is located in the small Tuscan town of Fiesole. Featuring beautiful landscape gardens, it boasts magnificent views over the copper-coloured roofs of Florence in the valley below, just a 10-minute drive away.
