Description

Only one mile away from Porta Romana a historical gate into the heart of the city of Florence, this gorgeous typical Florentine villa is located on the hill of 'Poggio Imperiale', immersed in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside surrounded by olive groves, gardens and fruit trees.

The garden of the villa looks out onto the beautiful Florentine hillside as well as Villa del Poggio Imperiale – from 1737 to 1860 residence of the 'Lorena' family, the Austrian Grand dukes of Tuscany - and the Arcetri observatory where Galileo Galilei continued his astronomical research after being called to Florence in 1610 by Cosimo II dei Medici.

 

The estate has recently been fully remodeled and restored. This careful restoration has created a very special ambiance: elegant, cozy and appealing. The property lies at an ideal location for visiting Florence, but is also convenient to the surrounding Chianti area and Siena (approximately 40 minutes by car), as well as to Pisa, Lucca and Arezzo.

 

The city center of Florence is easily and quickly accessible either by bus, taxi or rental car. The 'heart' of the city center, such as the world renowned Ponte Vecchio bridge and the Uffizi museum are only about 3 km (1.9 miles) away. The main train station (Santa Maria Novella) and Piazza Duomo only 4 km (2.4 miles) away.

The nearest bus station is within walking distance as it is only about 0.4 mile away from the villa. At the same location of the bus station there is also a few groceries stores, take out places, bakery, ice cream places, breakfast places, restaurant/pizzeria, dry cleaning and a pharmacy.

Taxi service works very well too, as it only takes a few minutes to come and go from the heart of the historical district of the city to the villa.
