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.
