    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 Villa Le Fontaine is lovely. Furnishings are of the highest quality as are linens and towels. The property is well cared for by "Butch" and the owners. The pool is beautiful. Indeed, my four grandchildren and their parents were often reluctant to leave the pool to see Florence! The villa is very well located, close to local shopping at... more
