Overview

Historic Center Barn Rental Photos and Description

In walking distance to Florence, with roof-top terrace, pool and olive groves!

This accommodation offers both rural peace and quiet but also proximity to Florence. It is a small guesthouse set in an exceptional location: next to a prominent Renaissance villa and in one of the best residential neighbourhoods of the area. South of Florence, the town is surrounded by gentle hills and cultivated fields. This quarter outside the town carries the proud name 'Poggio Imperiale' - Imperial Hill. The villa's location at the southern edge of Florence is an ideal starting point for going on excursions to the Chianti region, to Siena or to the coast, as the feeder roads to the superstrada motorway Firenze-Siena and to the autostrada highway are close by (1.5 km) and can be reached quickly without having to pass through the city centre. All necessary shops and several restaurants are only 1 km away.

LAYOUT OF THE HOUSE

1 living room with kingsize bed, two armchairs (sleeping sofa for one person each), kitchen area and long dining table

1 small bathroom (with shower)

Outside:

Private roof-top terrace

Pool (shared with the guests of another apartment)

An exterior staircase leads to the large living area. The ambience is similar to a studio and carefully furnished in a minimalist style: you'll find everything you need, everything in good taste and of high quality. The design consists of clear lines, simple forms and solid materials. Heavy, antique roof beams, and the warm tones of the terracotta floor tiles and clay roof tiles convey a liveable atmosphere. A comfortable suite of armchairs, a long table made of oak right next to the kitchen area and some additional features such as air conditioning and satellite TV offer comfort - a smooth blend of the country house style of Tuscany, comfort and fine design.

The exterior staircase leads then to the roof-top terrace. From here you enjoy a beautiful view and wooden garden furniture invites one to lie back and relax: there is a table with chairs and there are also two sun-loungers. It is only a few steps to the pool with its little pool house. The pool face south and can be used jointly with the guests of the Galileo apartment, and the owners may now and then use the pool as well. A lawn surrounds the oval pool. From there, you have a fine view of fields, cypresses, pines and the Certosa - the famous, antique monastery of Florence in the background.

'Why Amerigo Vespucci?' you may ask. Quite simple: It is exactely here where Amerigo Vespucci, the famous Florentine navigator spent his youth, before he set sail to find the New World and give it his name! Yes, my American friend - it is an Italian who baptised your land! An avenue of lime trees leads to this elegant 15th century villa decorated with columns and statues which sits majestically atop a hill. This elevated position allows for a beautiful view of the landscape and a pleasant, soft breeze even on hot summer days.

You will get a good night's sleep here! You live in an olive grove, far away from the bustle of the city with its humming motorbikes and honking cars. While the quiet location is far from every disturbance, it is only 3 km to the city - a distance which you could also cover by foot. There is a bus stop approximately 500 m away, and buses go to the centre regularly. The hospitable family of the house provides bikes for free upon their guests' request for biking to the bus stop or conveniently exploring the city (two bikes).

A side entrance with electronic gates leads to rear of the property. The visitor then enters a large, gravel forecourt with panoramic views of cypresses against a backdrop of hills. The Amerigo Vespucci apartment is housed in part of the former barn of the villa, which has been fully renovated and turned into tastefully furnished holiday accommodation. It is located approximately 15 m away from the main villa. The guesthouse has its own roof-top terrace equipped for al fresco dining. The pool with a small pool house is shared with another unit on the same esate.

Just by the way - the property owner can prepare dinners for you during your stay (please request menu and price on site). The accommodation is - compared to the usual prices in Florence - very reasonably priced and exceptional too for its quiet location and excellent facilities. A fine address in Florence!
