    Grace's Tuscan Villa is a casa colonica (or farmhouse) recently renovated and converted into an elegant Tuscan villa. The Villa is situated in an ideal location, being only 20 minutes (17 km, 10 miles) north of the Renaissance city of Florence, yet up in the hills surrounding Florence, thus offering enchanting views of Monte Morello and Monte Senario. The Villa is located on Grace's large family property, comprising 48 acres of woods, golden fields of wheat and an organic apple orchard. A beautiful tree-lined road leads to the Villa's own private entrance and grounds. Placed in a beautiful garden, it offers privacy as well as cool breezes in the summer and breathtaking sunsets in the evening.

Located up in the hills 10 km north of Florence (a quick 20 minute drive to the city center and all the sites), this retreat was the center of our fabulous Tuscany vacation. Grace Maria Scanza, her handy brother-in-law Ebo and trusty Border Collie Brio are the masters of this former working farm with gorgeous views and wildlife. Graces lives... more
