    Only one mile from Porta Romana square (Piazzale di Porta Romana), a historical gate into the city of Florence, this typical Florentine villa is situated on the hill of 'Poggio Imperiale' immersed in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside surrounded by olive groves, gardens and fruit trees.
    The villa looks out onto the gorgeous Florentine hillside including the Arcetri observatory where Galileo Galilei continued his astronomical research after being called to Florence in 1610 by Cosimo II dei Medici.

    The villa dates back to the XV century and the whole property is of much interest to the city of Florence being listed under “properties of particular cultural interest of the historical Park of the hills of Florence” in the Regulatory city plan of the city. The villa and its garden...

I visited La Fonte Antica with my husband and extended family including our five year old granddaughter. The home was beautiful, well maintained, and had everything we needed for a wonderful week's stay. It felt like "home" from the minute we stepped into the house. The owners are very accommodating and extremely helpful as we navigated trips into town and explored the countryside of Tuscany. And the private pool was just the thing we needed after a long day of touring. I definitely give the property my highest recommendation. more

My husband and I and a group of friends were delighted when we arrived at Villa La Fonte Antica, which is situated in the country-side, just outside the gates to Firenze. We found this villa after months of searching many websites and we could not have been more delighted. The villa has a grand history and is spacious, spotlessly clean, with fully equipped kitchen, living/dining room, laundry and 4 bedrooms over 2 levels. The outdoor living area is spectacular with views over the rolling hills of Tuscany and the pool area is pristine. Antonella and his family are professional, friendly and gracious hosts, who are more than happy to assist with arrangements for transport, local attractions, restaurants, shopping suggestions and any other thing that you may require. I can not speak highly enough of our stay at Villa La Fonte Antica. Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer.
