Nestled among the green hills of the Tuscan countryside in an historic part of Florence, the Property dates back to the 14th century (with the Villa Antica being the oldest part) and is situated in the Paradiso degli Alberti (Heaven of the Alberti, family of Leon Battista Alberti renowned Florentine Architect) only 3 km from the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Enjoy the private swimming pool surrounded by olive and cypress trees, hearing the birdsong and the joyous ringing of the Badiuzza bells and seeing the squirrels and pheasants running around while being so close to the principal museums and architectural masterpieces of the amazing city of Florence... ...and during the winter months, relax by the beautiful fireplaces, reading a book in the cosy atmosphere reminiscent of the bygone past.....Nestled among the green hills of the Tuscan countryside in an historic part of Florence, the Property dates back to the 14th century (with the Villa Antica being the oldest part) and is situated in the Paradiso degli Alberti (Heaven of the Alberti, family of Leon Battista Alberti renowned Florentine Architect) only 3 km from the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
