THE OWNER ASSURES HIS GUESTS COMPLETE AND FAST ASSISTANCE 24/7 IN CASE OF ANY NEEDS, EMERGENCY OR ANY PROBLEMS THAT MAY ARISE. EVEN THOSE NOT RELATED TO ACCOMODATION. Villa Lysis is located on the border of a charming hamlet perched on a hill top just a few miles west of Florence. The villa was built in the twelfth century as a fortified Lombard farm to guard the fertile Arno Valley. In 1989 the property passed into the hands of the present owner who embarked on an immense renovation, which respected the authenticity of the space whitout neglecting any of the modern comforts. In the process of the renovation the original Tuscan style framework, frescoes, wooden beamed ceilings, stone walls, brick vault, and cotto floors were all preserved. The villa has been furnished, equipped and decorated to the highest standards respecting authentic aesthetic and functional considerations. The furnishings and decorations are a combination of fine antiques and updated, high quality sofas, chairs and beds. The warm, cozy and quaint interior of the villa gives life to the feel of Tuscany, while maintaining a unique pleasing atmosphere - a rare combination of traits to find among the rental options of this countryside. INTERIOR DESCRIPTION: The main entrance gives way to a large and elegant living room with an open fireplace, original cotto floor, lovely beamed ceiling, library of art, cuisine, and travel books, not to mention all the comforts and conveniences of modern life (satellite television, , radio, . In addition, the living room has access to a garden. Off the living room is a neoclassical style double bedroom with an oversized bed (140 x 190 cm ) and 2 windows with view over the quiet courtyard. Adjacent to the bedroom is a large full bathroom appointed with a private shower area. The kitchen has a spacious cooking plane with 4 gas range and electric oven, microwawe, American coffee maker and an abundance of cooking utensils. This finely appointed kitchen is equipped for the preparation of a light snack or an entire gourmet dinner. The formal dining room is enchanting with its large Tuscan style fireplace, wood-beamed ceilings, cotto floor and view to the garden via a large window and glass paned door. Treat yourself by serving meals in the style that one would expect in Tuscany - with stemware and china provided. On the first Italian floor (second level) there are two double bedrooms and a full bathroom. The master bedroom is graced with an iron framed king size bed, beamed ceilings and a view of the Tuscan hillside with Florence visible in the distance. The second bedroom has a double bed (matrimonial or twins), a floral detailed ceiling from the 20th century and 2 windows with view over the quiet courtyard. Both bedrooms on the second level are air-conditioned. The bathroom is equipped with a tub and is decorated with lovely Italian tile and cabinetry . A Medieval Cellar with stone walls and a curved vaulted ceiling serve as an enchanting dining space for six. As a note of interest, during the most recent renovation, a hidden vault was discovered filled with period pieces which now adorn the villa. EXTERIOR DESCRIPTION/LOCATION: From the garden there is a gorgeous panoramic view of the Arno Valley with Florence visible on the horizon. From another side of the Villa you will be mesmorized by the tranquility of an enormous 18th Century baroque monastery residing on a nearby hilltop.
