If you want to stay within easy reach of Florence but also want to experience the beauty of Tuscany, the Villa I Bianchi in the Chianti area, Tuscany - is a good place to consider. It is just an hour from Florence and yet it sits within its own gardens and grounds, includes a private pool, and gives you unprecedented views of the Tuscan hills.
A traditional, stone villa, it has the looks of an ancient property, but step indoors and you will be astonished by the impressively clean and stylish décor. A cool palette emphasizes the natural stone, the tile, and the beauty of the entire structure. The pool features a small pool house with terrace, and so there are no covered terraces connected to the villa.
Instead, you have large and airy indoor living spaces divided between two floors. The lower level is where an open floor plan provides you with the large living room furnished with generously sized sofas and a working fireplace, a TV room or study, and an oversized dining room that is directly adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen is a masterpiece of modern appliances balanced beautifully with the classical setting.
Upstairs is another living room and fireplace that has a private entrance and stair to the grounds below. Four of the bedrooms are on the upper level as well. Three are queen sized and one is a twin room, each is fitted with a private en suite bathroom. Downstairs is a single queen suite with private bath.
The Villa I Bianchi is close to it all. You can drive to Florence in under an hour and you can explore the area or play a round at the nearby golf course. Alternately, you can just settle in with your friends and family and enjoy the remarkable Tuscan setting from the many luxurious outdoor or indoor spaces in this gorgeous property.
