Perfect Tuscan Apartment for Our Family
Hard to find anything wrong with Villa Licia and Atelier 1 where our family of four stayed for 10 days. Historic property beautifully maintained in the Chianti hills yet only 30 minutes south of Florence. Very spacious 2 bedroom/ 2 bath apartment with very high timbered ceilings in living room and kitchen area. Very nicely furnished, high quality linens/towels. Kitchen well-stocked. Terracotta tiled floors, bathrooms with marble tiles. Private outdoor seating for 6 or more under a wisteria covered pergola with stunning views of landscaped gardens, cypress-lined lanes, distant hills and overlooking a swimming pool for your use just 50 steps away. Also has a terrace that runs the length of the building. Perfect for returning to after day tripping (Sienna 1 hour, Pisa 1hr 30mins; San Gimi, Volterra, Greve, Castellina all within 45 mins) or really nice to just hang out and eat, swim, read, and enjoy the local Chianti Classico. Small but good supermarket 7 minutes away in Mercatale and a good assortment of local restaurants in neighboring towns.
Loved it here, already plotting a return trip in future.
How nice of you to take the time to write such nice review of your stay with us.
Thank you very much and we love to greet you here next time
This spacious and comfortable apartment with the name: Atelier 1 is situated in one of the finest estates (10 acres) surrounded by vineyards and olive groves in the Chianti Classico near Florence (20 km). Also very nice for a holiday with children. From 1989 to 2000 the estate was owned by the internationally renowned painter Karel Appel (COBRA) who lived and worked here during the summer months. On the grounds you find the Renaissance Villa Licia , a historic chapel from 1647, several classical gardens with many terracotta and marble sculptures and fountains. There is a large Giardino Segreto with a Tuscan temple. 3 swimming pools and 2 small play areas for children. Please look for more information and many more photos of the estate and gardens on our comprehensive website www. villalicia. com. In the former Atelier (studio) of Karel Appel, 3 luxury apartments were created entirely in Tuscan style using original Tuscan materials and traditional colors. There are 3 apartments: Atelier 1 (120 m2 for 2-6 persons with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms,( featured here in this site). Atelier 3 (90 m2 for 2-6 persons) which has also 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) and Atelier 2 (70m2 for 2-4 persons with one bedroom and one bathroom) For availability and prices of Atelier 2 and 3 ,we refer to our website www.villalicia.com The pool in the garden of the Ateliers is exclusive for Atelier guests and also has a special shallow children's section (50 cm deep).
