Villa Marchese

Tuscany - San Martino a Maiano Certaldo - Florence
Sleeps:18
Bedrooms: 9
Bathrooms: 9

The street that leads to the Villa  is not easy to find. One has to drive through the village of Certaldo, and, almost at the end of the village, turn into a little street among the houses. From here, the street leads up to the open landscape of Tuscany and offers an incredible panorama: Little hills that softly merge into each other, covered with green fields in springtime and with yellow stubble in summer, wine yards and little dots of woods on the horizon, little streets inter-crossing in the valleys, and single cypresses that remind of secret signs of ancient civilisations.

The ancient villa is situated on the top of one of these hills, surrounded by the nature of Tuscany. The house has a squared structure, which is characteristic for this area, as well as a typical “pigeon tower”. Recently, the villa has been completely restored. A garden surrounds the villa and offers a breathtaking view all around. In the garden, there is also a swimming pool, promising extremely relaxing moments during your stay.
