Description in Detail

Located just 8 kilometers outside of Florence in the picturesque hills of Tuscany, lies this Renaissance style villa on a grand estate that is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. The Villa is located on an elevated area of the region that is 320 meters above sea level, offering a compelling 360° panoramic view of Florence’s surrounding countryside. There is an impressive view of Giotto’s bell tower and Brunelleschi’s Dome. The estate is surrounded by a park with a swimming pool, pre-set pathways and a small naturally set theatre. The villa’s beauty is so astounding that it has even had the fortune to receive royal guests. In 1986, Princess Diana and Prince Charles spent some time staying at Villa Rustica for their very first trip to Italy. In a way, the villa itself is a spectacular piece of Renaissance art.

On the ground floor you’ll find two spacious living rooms, a dining room that provides a charming view of the garden, a kitchen, bathroom and the master bedroom. There is an outdoor area with a gazebo ideal for being a great dining area, always offering the beautiful view of the surrounding hills.

The first floor has 4 bedrooms, all of them with king sized beds and private bathrooms. There are also 2 bedrooms each with twin beds and bathrooms. This floor also has 1 bedroom with a single bed and bathroom, which is on an upper mezzanine level.

There is an upper floor which has a lavish belvedere dining room with four wide windows giving a 360°outlook of the expanding countryside.

Outside of the villa there is a dining area, barbeque area, a well-kept garden, tennis court, lawn bowling court, private pool and private parking. There is also a delightful sitting area shaded by a tree which offers a pristine scene of the surrounding countryside.

Villa Rustica is located only 8 kilometres from the Florence city centre and it is only a mere 10-15 minute drive away making it very convenient and easy to get there. The A1 road and the four-lane highway which lead to Siena are only about 6 kilometres from the Villa. It is also a short drive to the Florence airport which is approximately 18 kilometres away. The beautiful and renowned Chianti towns fortunately are a short drive away as well. The location of Villa Rustica is incredibly strategical as it provides short drives to all close by desired areas.
