sergio panchetti purchased this villa in 1970
My father bought this property in 1970. He worked as a sharecropper on a small farm cultivated with olive trees near the house, but in 1956 due to a large frost many trees died and he and his family left the farm. He moved to Florence where he undertook various activities. In 1970 he was offered this property and he bought it. Now I think it was a great satisfaction for him because after 15 years of work had bought the house of the landowner for whom he worked. I lived in Florence, and every afternoon I was with my father at the villa and I remember that I was so excited for all those rooms and those old furniture in the villa. I grew up here and this house is part of my life. I loved the property and now I am happy when guests enjoy their stay here. It is located in one of the most beautiful and quiet locations in the area on top of a hill surrounded by a ring of hills around. Because of its position every view from the villa in any direction is really fantastic. The villa is at the centre of the triangle Florence-Pisa and Sienna so in more than half an hour drive you can reach the most important towns in Tuscany. For who loves golf there are two colf clubs in the area.

Sono stata con la mia famiglia e con i miei amici in Villa Leoni per una settimana ed era un soggiorno meraviglioso! La villa e' bellissima, arredata in stile toscano, ben arredata e fornita di tutti elettrodomestici di cui si ha bisogno in vacanza. Nei dintorni c'e un palazzo antico e i paesaggi sono veramente stupendi! La villa la raccomando a tutti che vogliono passare le vacanze in Toscana circondati dai vigneti e uliveti, nel paese tranquillo, da cui si puo' facilmente visitare altri posti interessanti nei dintorni , p.e. Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano, ecc. Il proprietario Sergio e' un uomo molto gentile, sempre pronto ad aiutarci. Ci ritornerei con piacere!!!
