From Villa Acacia firenzedreaming, Florence city centre is at just 10 minutes by public bus! You will not need a car to enjoy the city and the Villa. If you have ever been to Florence you know this is a town where “suburbs” takes on a very special meaning. Just outside the very hectic 'circonvallazioni', the main arteries that lead into and out of the city center, are a host of picturesque residential areas where the aristocratic and wealthy built their spacious villas in the shade of huge umbrella pines. Cypress trees line the narrow roads that wind upwards past olive groves and tiny vineyards, so that almost at once you forget about the noisy city you just left behind.

You will not need a car to enjoy the city and the Villa. If you have ever been to Florence you know this is a town where “suburbs” takes on a very special meaning. Just outside the very hectic 'circonvallazioni', the main arteries that lead into and out of the city center, are a host of picturesque residential areas where the aristocratic and wealthy built their spacious villas in the shade of huge umbrella pines. Cypress trees line the narrow roads that wind upwards past olive groves and tiny vineyards, so that almost at once you forget about the noisy city you just left behind. But it's there, visible from every curve and terrace, dominated by Brunelleschi's inexplicable cupola and the forboding tower of Palazzo Vecchio. What a perfect combination, to have the sights of the Renaissance city but not the smells, sounds and mayhem of 21st century Firenze! The house is very spacious with plenty of room for a group of ten people: you can party together and enjoy your own time of privacy. The terrace on the roof, the one off the master bedroom and the side of the garden with the swimming pool have wonderful views of the city in the distance. You can see the Duomo towards South and enjoy the pleasant sights of the countryside hills in the other directions. Not to talk about sunsets… This 17th century villa occupies a hillside on the old road to Bologna, just fifteen minutes north of the city center. It has its own 4500 square foot garden, with a swimming pool that occupies one of the natural terraces where lemon trees used to be cultivated in a great earthenware vases. Facing this side of the property is the glass-enclosed room where those trees were protected in winter; now it holds a table where six people can dine with a view of the Duomo. At the other end of the garden is a cottage with a washing machine, dryer, iron and board, and a small WC. Also occupying the ground floor of the villa are a comfortable sitting room with couches, chairs and satellite TV, a dining room whose table can open up to accommodate sixteen people, a living room with a fireplace, armchairs and telephone. These rooms have stunning casement ceilings. Next to the dining room is a kitchen, furnished with a full fridge and freezer, oven, range top, microwave, Nespresso machine, American coffeemaker, and dishwasher. It has a table for two, and opens onto a covered pergola with dining for the entire group. Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom has a double bed, a roomy wardrobe and a door onto a private terrace overlooking the city. Next door is a bathroom with shower and tub. Across the hall from the bathroom, a door opens onto a tiny back street, perfect for unloading bags and parking if you have more than one car. The next two bedrooms share a balcony: one has two twin beds, the second has a full sized bed and a single bed. There is a bathroom with shower nearby both rooms. Then there is a suite with its own entrance, featuring a double bedroom, small kitchen and bathroom with shower. Another flight of stairs leads up to the last bedroom, which has a double bed and a bathroom with a stall shower. But the villa has more to offer! On the roof, reached by a comfortable flight of stairs, is a large terrace with deck chairs and one of the best views to be found for miles. All the windows in the house have screens, the property is gated and surrounded by a wall, and in the garden is a built-in brick barbeque. Just down the street are several small shops and only 100 yards from the door is the stop for the city bus that goes straight down to the center of town. In High and Peak season we just rent Saturday-Saturday weeks (and multiples). Price will be calculated on the Saturday-Saturday weeks occupied by the period requested.Eventual use of heating and air conditioning is not included, please enquire for a flat rate or a price upon consumption.Upon check in you will be requested to leave a damage deposit of 500 Euro, to be returned upon check out (minus eventual damages and eventual extras).

About the neighborhood
The Tuscany region Florence, the spectacular capital of the region of Tuscany, is located on Italy's northwest coast. It is a stunning medieval city divided into two parts by the River Arno that flows from the Apennines through Florence and Pisa and on to the Ligurian Sea. Florence is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world with its overflow of palaces, churches and museums filled with masterful paintings and sculptures. The city was found in 59.B.C by Julio Caesar's war veterans, who named it 'Florentin', for its flourishing beauty. Florence experienced its time of greatness in the 14th century when the powerful family of the Medicis made its entry onto the world scene, eventually becoming bankers to the papacy. Cosimo Medici became the ruler of Florence and sponsored a...
