The Villa is located just 30 kilometres south-east of Florence, on the side of a hill covered with oak and chestnut woods and olive groves. It is surrounded by green countryside of great naturalistic interest, preserved by several nature reserves and protected areas, and slopes down from the ridges of the mountains at Pratomagno down towards the Arno river valley dotted with old villages, castles and churches. The villa started out as a roman watchtower, and was then included in renaissance times in the property of the Guicciardini family (the noble florentine family who also owned the church going back to the year 1000, with its romanesque bell-tower and 2 wooden panels by Ghirlandaio. The Villa has recently been subjected to a careful renovation: the interior is on several levels and the furnishings are in a refined and elegant country style which integrates effortlessly with many high-tech details, such as modern, pratical bathrooms, an efficient kitchen with fireplace and the use of a barbecue, oven, dishwasher, microwave, american fridge, satellite TV, DVD/CD/MP3 player, and a broadband wi-fi internet connection. The owner lives in a completely independent dependence. The interior of the annex is nice but more basic and simple. Outside garden, also on several levels, of 8000 sq.m, a nice 5x9m swimming-pool, a loggia with a fireplace for barbecues and furnished for relaxing, and large terraces, all of which dominates the church and the valley below with the view stretching out as far as the Chianti hills in the distance.
