Country house immersed in greenery, with private entrance and garden 6 km from the center
Entire house on three levels, in the quiet hilly area of Settignano, with entrance, car park and private garden. Settignano is 15 minutes from the historic center, easily reachable also by line number 10 from the village square.
Staying in Settignano is a new and fascinating way to discover a territory already appreciated by artists such as Michelangelo, Boccaccio, D'Annunzio who in Settignano found part of his inspiration. The house in question is located on the first hill of Florence, 15 minutes drive from the city center, located in a liberty context, surrounded by greenery and in the silence of Tuscany, with parking, entrance and private garden from where you can appreciate the panorama of the city.
Settignano was a safe holiday destination during the summer for Florentine guelphs. Giovanni Boccaccio and Niccolò Tommaseo appreciated its freshness, its vineyards and its fields of olive trees, the typical landscape of Italian gardens.
In 1898 Gabriele D'Annunzio bought the 14th century Villa of Capponcina in Settignano, to be closer to his lover Eleonora Duse, at Villa Porziuncola.
Settignano is the Villa Gamberaia, a 14th-century villa famous for its eighteenth-century gardens on the terrace, and the most secluded Villa I Tatti, owned by Bernard Berenson, which has become a center of art history studies run by the University Harvard.
