Tuscany Villa Rental Photos and Description
7 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, 15 Sleeps
Experience the splendor of Renaissance architecture in 21st-century comfort at Villa Le Rose. Dating from the 15th century, this aristocratic country house outside Florence retains its elegant layout and classic frescoes, but was recently restored with an eye to adding state-of-the-art luxuries. The property’s seven bedrooms can accommodate large groups, and concierge and butler service ensures that everyone’s needs are met.
The trompe l’oeil frescoes inside Villa Le Rose rival the manicured gardens outside, which bloom with roses, lemon trees and cedar. Take a quiet moment on the loggia facing a sunny courtyard, nap on the cheerful striped furniture spread on the lawn, swim in the private pool tucked between green hedges and dine in the shade of an umbrella. For comfort and convenience, there’s air conditioning, Wi-Fi access and an elevator inside.
The highlight of Villa Le Rose is its stately interiors, whose elaborate moldings and frescoes have been restored to colorful and lively effect. From a hunting scene in the entry to the living room’s vistas of architectural ruins and a sitting room with a botanical motif, there’s artwork at every turn. Gorgeous formal antique furnishings share the stage with more modern pieces, like the living room’s blue velvet sofas and marble-topped coffee table. There’s a formal dining room crowned by a chandelier, while the fully equipped eat-in kitchen offers a more modern, casual setting.
Each of the property’s seven bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom stocked with Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries. There are four bedrooms with king beds, one bedroom with a queen bed and one bedroom with two twin beds and a sofa bed. The seventh bedroom, occasionally used as the staff room, has twin beds. Baby equipment is available for the smallest guests.
Villa Le Rose is just 5 minutes from a tennis court and grocery store, or, if you’d prefer not to cook, the Gil Scopeti restaurant. A 10-minute drive takes you to the train station and hospital, and a 15-minute drive brings you to the center of Florence. The city’s airport is only a bit further, at 20 minutes away, and even the beach is close enough for a day trip, at 75 minutes away.

Villa Le Rose is a Medici villa commissioned by the Marchese Niccolò Antinori in the 15th century. It remained in the Antinori's possession until the beginning of the last century, when the family sold the property.
In the 1980’s, Leonardo and Beatrice Ferragamo bought the villa it and made it their home. The owners’ affection for the villa motivated them to carry out a restoration project, which was completed in 2003.
During the course of the refurbishment, the villa was fitted with all the modern comforts and practicalities while maintaining and enhancing its historical features.
