The secret treasure of Florence

Set on 30 hectares in the hills on the immediate outskirts of Florence is the former summer residence of the Ghirlandaio family, where the beautiful frescoes of Ridolfo del Ghirlandaio ordain the family chapel within this vast and secluded hilltop estate, parts of which date back to the fourteenth century. In effect a hamlet of five separate and independent villas, this unique, restored property is finished to the highest of standards to offer an incomparable holiday immerse in a sense of history, privilege, privacy and luxurious comfort. Equally impressive is the sublime view of Florence and its famed domes. It is a sight that would have been shared and enjoyed also by other famous visitors and guests, including other legendary artists such as Botticelli and Raffaello. Now utterly transformed into a luxurious private hideaway, a mere fifteen minute drive from the historic centre of Florence, the approach alone off the main A1 motorway wends its way along the hillside and also winds up one’s level of expectation that is fully justified on arrival. Furniture and antique pieces from across Tuscany compliment the fine restoration of appealing living spaces, including the fabulous conversion from once part of an ancient dovecote tower into the main villa. Oak parquet floors, vaulted, coffered ceilings, marble fireplaces, vaulted Restoration ceilings and Impruneta terracotta tiles, are in keeping with the property’s charismatic and architectural heritage. Added to the mix is a host of modern luxuries: air conditioning; a wonderful modern stone/brick vaulted spa below the main villa featuring a sauna, jacuzzi,  steam and massage room; sleek marble countertop kitchens; stone-built barbecue and pizza oven terrace; en suite bathrooms covered in precious marble. The grounds are immense and immersed in silence and feature an Italian garden, thousands of olive trees, oak woods and cypress trees within the surroundings. In order to fully appreciate the atmosphere the outdoor terraces are also furnished to the highest standards and the unique appeal of this property is enhanced by its two swimming pools; the larger at the front of the property can be heated on request and enjoys a glorious view of Florence and the “smaller” pool located in the Renaissance Garden provides a waterfall cascade.

The luxury estate comprises five beautifully restored buildings, each with independent and direct access out onto an outdoor terrace or into a courtyard, has a total of 20 spacious bedrooms en suite for up to 37 guests to enjoy lavish private comfort. All bedroom suites are of comparable quality to underscore the pervading sense of privacy at this property, made all the more exclusive within high perimeter walls. Living arrangements offer scope for versatility, which our concierge will be readily able to adapt to your wishes and needs.  The service here naturally measures up and the scale of the grounds means there are a host of places in which to gather ‘en famille’ and to enjoy the company of others, with also a good many spots within the grounds where one can indulge in more private moments of relaxation in the lap of luxurious comfort. The charm of the view, the surroundings and facilities provide a super opportunity for a first-class stay and experience in Tuscany. Other historic centres such as Siena and charming hilltop towns such as San Gimignano, San Casciano and Monteriggioni, as well as the Chianti region, are within easy reach for delightful day excursions.

This is a unique luxury holiday rental and is one that lends itself to the most special of gatherings for large families coming together from far and wide to enjoy a unique experience, to celebrate a landmark event or special milestone; within sight of Florence yet far removed within countryside and seclusion of the hills overlooking the city.
