What you should know…

We recommend you rent a car so you can make the most out of the region!

In the heart of a large rural estate, surrounded by the Florence hills of Val d'Arno, Villa Leopolda is set in an isolated location. It has been redesigned with taste and attention given to historic detail, and it is surrounded by olive trees, vineyards and forests. The villa is a wonderful place for family or cultural holidays.

The lobby of the villa opens into a generous parlour with a fireplace and adjacent dining room. This spacious living and dining area extends along the southern facade and opens up onto a patio with a view over Val d'Arno.

There is a fully equipped professional kitchen and an adjacent breakfast room. For a wine tasting evening, the "Carnotzet", a type of cellar bar with historic baking oven, can be used in the cellar.

On the first floor there are four spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.

In the quietness of the old pigeonry, guests can enjoy a 360 degree view over the Val d'Arno. It is a calm and private space where guests can retire, write, read, make or hear music.

The villa is suitable for disabled persons with an easily accessible bathroom as well as a side room for an attendant.

Tours

The owners can organize a private guide to accompany guests in the streets of Florence. Below are different tour proposals, but the guide is very happy to tailor any tour to individual desires.

Tour 1 :

A classical tour suggested for first time visitors that crosses all the main monuments, 3 hours long. The religious heart, including the Duomo, the Baptistery, Giotto's bell tower and Brunelleschi's Dome, is first. The medieval quarters with the house-towers is second. Finally, the political heart with the city hall, palazzo vecchio, signoria Square and the famous old bridge completes the tour.

Tour 2:

This is a 2 hour private walking tour starting from the 'Duomo' area, the religious heart of the city, and progressing through the tiny and narrow streets of the medieval quarters. Guests will see the highlights of Florence, the Signoria Square, the old bridge, and St. Croce until they reach the 'Oltrarno' where artisans still work at keeping ancient traditions alive.

Tour 3:

This is a full-day tour of six hours. It starts with a visit to one of the most important museums with the original Michelangelo masterpiece the David Statue. The guide will help guests skip the huge waiting lines. After the museum, the walking tour moves into the religious heart of the city, where guests will see the baptistery, the cathedral (Duomo), Giotto's bell tower and Brunelleschi's Dome. After a break for lunch, the tour moves to the political heart of the city: Signoria square, old bridge and the inside of the most beautiful church of Florence, Santa Croce. It has Giotto's 16th century frescoes and Michelangelo's, Galileo's, and Machiavelli's tombs.

Tour 4:

This is a 3 hour evening day tour for curious children. Summer is very hot in Florence, so guests will enjoy the breeze of the evening with an accurate tour of the secrets and legends in this ancient town. The Roman town, the towers, and the hidden narrow streets are especially exciting for children that get bored of seeing monuments or for adults that want variety. This is a unique experience to see Florence from an unexpected point of view. The last stop is always for the best gelato in Florence. The cost is 50 euro per hour.
