Does a large and private villa in the hills above Florence sound like the ideal Tuscan getaway? When you book a stay at the Villa Duca in the Florence Area, Tuscany, that is precisely what you get. This gorgeous villa is set just outside of Florence and surrounded by its own landscape of gardens, olive groves, cypresses and terraces.
It is an eight-bedroom property and has been renovated in a way that retains the very best of its Tuscan charms while providing guests with the kinds of comforts and conveniences that make for a perfect holiday. It is a three-story structure that offers impressive views of the hills and landscape and several porticos and lounge areas generously furnished for al fresco dining or relaxing in the sun surround a courtyard with fountain.
Just steps from the villa is the ornately shaped saltwater pool. It too has a surrounding paved terrace, sun beds and spots to lounge and relax. It opens into the gardens and encourages guests to explore the shady avenue of cypresses nearby.
Inside the villa, the high ceilings and fresco paintings have been lovingly preserved. You will notice them at once as you enter the living room with its large windows, Tuscan fireplace, and French doors to the terrace. There is an entertainment area, a library, and two sitting rooms to give everyone a quiet nook of their own.
The kitchen is on the main floor of the villa and includes a dining area and gourmet appliances. The study next to the kitchen can be a good breakfast room, and there is a formal dining room off the terrace. Upstairs is a full office and another formal dining room filled with morning light to enjoy a breakfast as a group or a formal dinner.
The Villa Duca is a wonderful find and ideal for a large group or family hoping to enjoy the best of Tuscany in privacy and tranquility.
