The owners fell in love with Italy when they moved there in 2001. In 2004, they came upon this historic villa which was in a state of disrepair. Over the years they have restored it to their original grandeur and hired a staff to maintain their high standards and extend a high level of hospitality to visiting guests.

Phyllis Swindells purchased this villa in 2004

The picturesque setting and deep history of this property made this a truly unique property.

The villa is set on 40 acres of beautiful landscaping, olive groves and small farm. Our small farm provides the villa with fresh eggs, fresh produce, livestock and the highest quality olive oil.

Delightful Winter Holiday

The location is perfect: a short drive into Florence yet located in the rolling hills of the countryside with gorgeous vistas just outside of the town of Impreneta. The villa is expansive with rooms set up for all kinds of different activities: ping-pong and pool tables, large flat screen tv with a library of the best tourist books, study, bar side chatting, fireplace lounging, kitchen culinary exploration with table for informal meals and formal dining room. The third floor has a great game/play area for kids.The poolside area and patio outside the villa overlook the countryside. Walking around the property near the olive trees you will discover a court that can be converted for tennis, basketball or soccer. The photos accurately reflect the immaculately kept property and its amenities. In addition to sightseeing in Florence day trips can be taken to charming nearby tuscan towns, such as Greve, Panzano (don't miss stopping in to see Dario, the famous butcher at McDario's) San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and Siena. If you come during the warm weather (May is delightful) you can learn about tuscan winemaking and taste the best of tuscan wines. Many fabulous restaurants abound. I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Outstanding Experience - We Look Forward To Returning!

My family and I recently returned home from a 10- day vacation at this beautiful villa. As we found out the day we arrived the photos hardly do this expansive property justice and the owners clearly spared no expense in restoring this magnificent villa. The bathrooms alone exceed any European standards of luxury for a private villa that we’ve seen. Each and every room awash in rich Tuscan colors is so tastefully decorated it’s hard to believe this is a rental property.

We will never forget our welcome dinner served Al Fresco with those stunning views of the countryside. This really set the tone for our entire stay. We took advantage of a friend's recommendation to hire a tour guide for our first day in Florence, a great decision. While we enjoyed several other day trips (SIENA, San Gimignano, Lucca, etc), toured the incredible Marchesi Antinori Chianti Classico Cellar (a must-see for wine lovers) and did some local olive oil tasting, we always looked forward to getting back to the villa. On our last night there, we agreed that the most meaningful times were spent at the villa - at the pool, on the court, playing backgammon or charades, late night ping pong matches and certainly dining Al fresco with that breath taking view and the magical sunsets.

Our experience at this villa far exceeded our expectations. Every meal was outstanding, the staff always very accommodating. We left (reluctantly) feeling incredibly relaxed, rejuvenated and committed to living life a little slower from now on - thank you Italy! I still miss waking up (with a big smile) and opening that bedroom window to breathe in another Tuscan morning so I am now plotting my return - this time a Girls Trip to Villa L’Accursio for the Fall of 2015. Thank you Phyllis for opening your gorgeous home and a huge thank you to Fely for taking such good care of us!!

Suggestions: We brought our own GPS (TomTom World Traveler) which was brilliant to navigate the maze of streets in Siena especially. Ladies, if wearing sleeveless, bring a scarf to cover your shoulders when going into any churches. Also if you're there in the summer you will want to bring some mosquito repellant for the evenings. It quickly became our "summer scent" - a small price to pay for a slice of heaven.
Don't Miss: Fely's pizza, Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella in Florence (fragrances, gifts), the view from the rooftop bar at The Westin Excelsior (Florence), Ristorante Il Battibecco for a romantic dinner out (Impruneta).

My family had a wonderful stay at Villa L'Accursio outside of Impruneta, Italy. It's perfectly situated on the way to Tuscany but only 15 minutes drive from Florence itself. The Villa is clean and very well-maintained. The cook Felly prepares delicious and healthy meals with seasonal foods from local markets. Our family loved our time at the Villa, it was a highlight in our trip to Italy in March, 2013.
