San Casciano is a buzzy market town just 3 km away from this handsome property and the area offers an abundance of history, agriculture, culinary experiences and wonderful walks.
One of the last genuine Tuscan Villas, that maintains its noble atmosphere whilst providing comfort and elegance in a wonderful setting, the property is currently run as a Dimora Storica Hotel ( a Stately Home )
First cited in 1408, this property has been owned by several important Tuscan families including the Corsini, the Ricasoli and the Rucellai. The property was bought by the current owner’s family in the 1960s and it underwent several renovations; the last in 2000 to transform the Villa from a private home to a Hotel.
The Villa boasts an elegant entrance and facade with a columned loggia and a large front lawn with a central cypress tree. Below the villa are terraces with a large panoramic pool and a dining terrace. There is a Chapel – currently used as the Reception, a Wellness area in the basement, parking amongst the olive trees and a restaurant in the ancient cellars.
Set over 4 floors the accommodation offers 24 suites (junior and family), a professional kitchen, a dining room with outdoor terrace, several living rooms, a Spa area and the cool loggia area for those hot summer days.
The decorations are from the 1800s with frescoes and decorated beams and doors. The original stone features remain throughout the Villa along with the original floors while the rooms are painted different earth colours and carry noble names rather than numbers.
The surrounding land of ca 7 Ha includes woods and olive grove with 1300 trees. The Villa covers ca. 1600 sqm.
