    Only one mile away from Porta Romana square (Piazzale di Porta Romana), a historical gate into the heart of the city of Florence, this gorgeous typical Florentine villa is located on the hill of 'Poggio Imperiale', immersed in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside surrounded by olive groves, gardens and fruit trees.
    The garden of the villa looks out onto the beautiful Florentine hillside as well as Villa del Poggio Imperiale – from 1737 to 1860 residence of the 'Lorena' family, the Austrian Grand dukes of Tuscany - and the Arcetri observatory where Galileo Galilei continued his astronomical research after being called to Florence in 1610 by Cosimo II dei Medici.

    The whole property is of much interest to the city of Florence and is listed under “properties of particular cul...

The house is immaculately kept and tastefully decorated, the bathrooms are amongst the very best I have seen in Italy and the kitchen is perfectly stocked to cook anything you like. I cant recommend it enough! And... more

We have 3 boys (ages 10, 8 and 6) and... more
