Why Andrea Pferschy chose Metropolitan City of Florence

This property belongs to our family since two generations. Since my parents in law passed away, we rent the Villa with success to guests all over the world. Beside the complete renovation of the house, you still recognize the authentic atmosphere of a typical Italian Renaissance Villa.

What makes this villa unique

The unique location of the property gives you the choice whether to go for lunch into the town of Florence in 15 minutes or to relax in total privacy and peace at the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am delighted to write this review of my family's recent experience at the Villa Il Colline. It was amazing throughout!!! The home is beautifully located with amazing views of the surrounding hills. Althought the temperature was still cool, we were able to enjoy the beautiful grounds and the house was very adequately heated. Upon arrival, the owner was kind enough to guide us from a nearby town since our GPS was not very specific to the exact location. The owner is amazing and was very welcoming and even arranged for the delivery and return pick up for a wheel chair for one of my family members. Her gentle, extremely polite, and kind ways capitivated all of us from our first encounter. The house accomodated us very comfortably. The staff was very extremely efficient and polite. A chef-catored dinner also arranged by the owner for us. It was deliciously prepared, beautifully presented and served. The chef and her husband were just as delightful and did an incredible job tending to my family. This historic home is perfectly decorated with beautiful antiques and yet it is very functional. It had all the necessary ammenities and very comfortable spaces with amazing views from every room throughout the house. The Villa has easy access to many locations and we visited many smaller cities in the vicinity. My only regret is not having spent more time at the Villa and have enjoyed the beautiful grounds more. On my next stay there I plan to do so. I highly recommend the Villa and the whole experience was one my family and I will never forget. We are very thankful to the owners to have made this a perfect vocation experience.

Authentic and Impeccable Villa for a Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Imagine being out in Florence all day long soaking up art and the pleasure of the city, then arriving home in an easy 20-minute drive to a spectacular Villa with a cozy fire going in the living room and kitchen, hors d'oeuvres and wine waiting. Well, there are certainly a lot of villas for rent in Italy, and we have truly found an authentic treasure in the Villa Le Colline! This large home has been in the same family for several generations and has been fully renovated in the past couple of years. It is now the ideal combination of a lovely traditional-style old home with fully modernized facilities and impeccable maintenance. We were a family of 14, spanning three generations, and the house gracefully accommodated play, visiting, rest, and meals perfectly. The bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable, private and spacious. The bedding and towels are new and luxurious. The kitchen has all amenities and two refrigerators. There is even both stainless and silver for laying a daily or fancy table. The top floor annex of two adjoining apartments are comfortable and charming with astounding views. They may be less appropriate for older people due to a narrow flight of access stairs. Our two young families loved staying in these rooms and the views are astounding! The owners are friendly, readily available, and knowledgeable. They also speak excellent English. Our in-home chef (that was arranged via the owners) surpassed all expectations and served spectacular meals that easily matched any local restaurant. Our family has created a life-long memory of this special trip together to Italy and we have Villa Le Colline and the Pferschy family to thank for making their gorgeous home a treat to stay in. We highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in a once-in-a-lifetime "real" Italian villa easily convenient to Florence as well to the full advantages of the Tuscan countryside. We're already dreaming of a return!

Exclusive and Authentic Tuscan Villa Experience

  • 5 of 5

Villa Le Colline provides the high end vacationer the perfect combination of modern conveniences and old world charm. Elegantly appointed with impeccably manicured grounds, Villa Le Colline is located in the hills near Ugolino Golf Course; perfectly positioned to provide easy access to the autostrada, the Chianti wine region, the International School and the Florence city center. Our landlord, Andrea Colaccichi, was charming, unpretentious, and willing to answer all of our questions at any time. The online photos understate this property. Once there, you will breathe deep and realize you have truly arrived at an Authentic Tuscan Villa sanctuary.

Fabulous Villa near Florence

  • 5 of 5

Villa Colline is a gem. The owners have impeccable taste and they have created a warm and cozy feeling in an elegant villa that is hundreds of years old. We had our own pool which was essential with the heat. There was a cook that prepared delicious meals as well. This villa is a bargain for the price and I highly recommend it. We also rented the 2 bedroom limonaia (cottage) which is charming and gave our guests some privacy.

Tuscan Villa close to Florence

  • 5 of 5

The property , only 12 kms outside Florence gives the amazing opportunity to explore the beautiful hills, villages, nature of the Chianti area and the art, architecture and culture of Florence. The beautiful and tasteful antique furnishing lends an authentic and generous atmosphere to the Villa. Time can be also enjoyed by an afternoon at the pool, strolling around the olive groves or playing golf at oldest golf course in Italy only 8kms away.

The charm of the owners is reflected in the splendid environment of the property.

How about renting a bike and exploring the hills and villages in Chianti? Or spending a morning learning about wines and tasting great Tuscan wines such as Brunello, Montepulciano, Vernaccia di San Gimignano and Chianti?

How about spending a morning in the kitchen, learning a few selection of Tuscan recipes that you can enjoy immediately thereafter? How about exploring the Tuscan countryside on foot on a day hike?

Located close to Impruneta, known for the famous cotto tiles, offers many ways to discover the Chianti area.

The most famous feast is definitely the FESTA DELL'UVA in Impruneta, that dates back to 1926 and has always attracted many Italian and foreign tourists in the month of September. Over the years, the feast has changed a little bit , losing its rural character but still a wonderful occasion to attend!
