Overview

The villa spans over 1200 square meters of living space and its central location is convenient to explore the major areas of Florence, Chianti, Siena and Lucca. In its past the villa has been the dwelling of many illustrious guests, among them Paolina Bonaparte, sister of Napoleon and the Grand Duchess of Tuscany. The villa belongs to one of the most prominent aristocratic Italian families, and you will feel as a true royalty vacationing here while having the villa staff pampering you like a prince!

All rooms of the villa are impeccably decorated with luxurious furnishing and finishes housing a remarkable art collection. The building retains its original architectural structure with its floors, vaulted ceilings, fireplaces and staircases.
