About this listing
Live out a historic Italian fantasy in the luxurious, newly renovated Villa Palazzo.
From its romantic stucco exterior, medieval stone tower and 13th-century chapel and crypt to its traditionally furnished interiors and on-site staff, there’s plenty to inspire and pamper. Located less than an hour from Florence, Pisa and Siena, the six bedroom property makes the perfect base from which to explore Tuscany.
The villa’s manicured lawn and garden commands a view of the countryside as far as the famed skyline of San Gimignano. Enjoy dinner fresh from the outdoor grill on the covered terrace, and descend a staircase to the pool, which has its own loggia with a shower and fridge. Explore the 13th century chapel dedicated to Saint Bartholomew or the Internet via the house’s Wi-Fi.
True to its name, Villa Palazzo offers elegant, magazine worthy interiors. In the living room, historic touches like beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, carved fireplaces and damask chairs are paired with modern tuxedo sofas, all watched over by Renaissance style portraits. Sit down in the formal dining room, which has its own fireplace, or take your espresso in the more casual breakfast area adjoining the fully equipped modern white kitchen.
There are five bedrooms in the main villa and one in the tower annex, each with its own character. In the main house, you’ll find two bedrooms with queen beds, one with an en-suite bathroom and one with a private bathroom, Jacuzzi and balcony. There are two bedrooms with two twin beds and private bathrooms. The fifth bedroom has two twin beds, combined to form a queen, as well as an en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi. Climb the medieval tower to find a bedroom with a queen bed, en-suite bathroom, fireplace, sitting area and its own rooftop terrace.
Villa Palazzo is about 2 miles outside the town of Castelfiorentino, which offers shopping, dining and a tennis court. Bring your clubs for a round at the Castelfalfi golf course, about 12 miles away. The sights of Florence, Siena and Pisa are each less than an hour away, and when it’s time to leave, it’s only 19 miles to the Florence airport and 28 miles to the Pisa airport.
