About The Owner

Both houses and the Hayloft lay in a classical Tuscan setting at Settignano: on the hills overlooking Florence and on grounds which use to be the farmhouse to the Renaissance Villa Gamberaia worldwide known for its historical gardens. Once used to store young lemon trees sapling during winter months and olives during fall crop, now converted into the most comfortable country homes where you can find a perfect balance between modern and traditional furniture.

Their position allows one to enjoy the view of the countryside and the city of Florence.

Walking distance to the picturesque village of Settignano (600 mt away) and 4 km from Florence city centre.

Fresh vegetables from the green garden.

City bus from Central Station to Settignano only takes 25 min. and taxis take no extra charge.Over the years, I have completed an informal combination of flower and plants trying not to forget to be afraid of simplicity and I like to see myself as one of today’s ecologically sensitive people who relate to beauty as based on a total respect for the dignity of nature.

Here, you can experiment a relationship with nature, stillness and a feel of home, amidst the hustle and bustle of the life in Florence . Fabrizio and two other “young 75 year old friends" take care of the vegetable garden and the chickens adding to the property an informal atmosphere.

Also a country setting for a great pool measuring 14×7 meters, 1.55 deep. Two gazebos to escape from the sun and plenty of beds to sun bathe. Cool off before your best meal the tuscan way just by walking to the village.

Pool opening mid May-mid September.

Why The Owner chose Campo di Marte (Quartiere 2)

I have been an interior Designer for many years working for foreign investors interested in Tuscan properties and finally I had the opportunity to work around my own project with the hope I have been able to use my experience in converting peoples Tuscan dream vacation in something true and I do hope I have managed to get close to this accomplishment since I feel so much responsibility in handling people time they dedicate to vacation . ... I so much hope so and do my best every day in this direction.
