The Head, the Heart and the Hands...
May 2019
Such an amazing experience, to see this masterpiece of a renaissance garden architecture. It was truly unbelievable, what this gardening the house have been through. You need a day to fully understand, to comprehend and enjoy.

If you are a garden lover, attracted to arboretums and parks - - - go

First, it was found by luck. As the Russian fellow who visited here, it is a bloody challenge and will be pointed out by the locals. Once there, enjoy the terraces and various herbs and flowers. The home history must date back to the medival period, afterall, the style, canons, etc.., clearly suggest this was a form of protection while the city-states were taking place.
More of interest, this is a setting where classes are offered on garden and garden design. The one instructor was there and gave me some insights. Depending upon the time, plan 1 1/2 hours - - - again, a quiet respite from the packed streets of Florence.
It is neglected but, hey, that is part of the charm.

Villa Peyron. Beautiful but neglected
May 2016 • Couples
Villa Peyron is a gorgeous park which will reward you with quite and shadows on a hot summer day while you are traveling around Florence. Of course, if you'll find this Villa. There are no signs on the road which would direct you to Villa Peyron. So, you have to check out the photos and see how the entrance looks like before going there. Also, we spent quite some time looking for... a doorbell on the gate wall!

The mansion itself we couldn't visit because it was closed but the park is really beautiful. Too bad we had a feeling that it's dried out and kinda neglected. Statues in poor conditions, dried out Japanese ponds, broken steps and bridges.

I would recommend reading the story of Paolo Peyron, the previous owner, before going to the Villa.

Not recommended for people who use wheelchairs or any other walking assistance.
