Only eight miles from Florence, the Villa Florentino in Florence area of Tuscany, is a classic example of a Tuscan villa. Set atop a hill and surrounded by mature olive groves, it has been recently restored and retains all of its original charm and style. The tile floors, the arched doors, the high beamed ceilings are there to enjoy, but so too are many modern conveniences and updates that make this property a perfect balance of old world beauty and modern comfort.
The villa is part of a larger estate with a main building and several cottages. The main villa has a large loggia, which has been designed to work as an al fresco dining area, and it overlooks the lawn in which the tiled pool is tucked into the setting behind a row of trees. There are several other lounging and dining spots dotting the lawn and the landscape.
Inside of the main villa is a large living room with a Tuscan fireplace. The décor emphasizes the original details and creates an immediate sense of warmth, welcoming and ease. The open floor plan leads from the living room to the terrace or into the oversized dining room. This leads into the large and modern kitchen that features all of the appliances necessary for even a chef. There is also an enormous entertainment room with a piano, entertainment center and billiards table.
The main villa has room for ten and features a queen bedroom suite with kitchenette and en suite bath. The upper floor has a king suite, a queen suite, and a larger queen suite with study. These rooms have large ensuite baths as well. There is a private queen room with an en suite bath here too.
The Villa Forentino can also include two additional cottages within steps of the main villa, and which can increase the guests to 17 at one time. This makes it perfect for a large group, a special event, or a place for discerning travelers to enjoy the very best of Tuscany.
