FLORENCE VILLA VIOLETTA

Florence Villa Violetta is a small agritourism (farmhouse), renovated with love and dedication by its owner. It is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards on rolling hills, and it is only 12 km from the center of Florence. It is situated in a protected landscape area dotted with small Romanesque churches, monasteries, tiny cemeteries and medieval villages which give it an ancient flavor. From the property you can enjoy spectacular views and sunsets!

THE PAST

The farmhouse inhabited by sharecropper farmers until the 1950s, is built in a Tuscan stone: the Alberese, characteristic of the area, which has a light, warm color. The red brick barn was used for storing hay, agricultural machinery and as a dryer for olives and grains.

HOSPITALITY

3 finely renovated apartments await you:

  • – An apartment, in the main house, with rustic Tuscan furnishings;
  • – A two-room apartment, in the barn, with a modern and minimalist design in light colors from white to lavender.
  • – A studio apartment in the barn with an elegant and welcoming design.

The property is surrounded by a lovely all year round flower garden with a view of Florence with the cathedral’s dome as beautiful as a dream.

Short and long walks/hikes start outside the gates of the property, passing through narrow streets and villages of historical and artistic interest. Routes marked on trekking maps. Nine hundred meters/ half a mile away is the village of Villamagna with its beautiful 13th century Romanesque church with wooden ceilings and important works of art.
