Perks for the Parents

This secluded villa with a pool, 15 minutes from Florence, offers a romantic and luxurious take on Tuscany, surrounded by cypress, olive and fruit trees. Staffed with a house manager and chef with a babysitter/nanny also available, families are well looked after. Lounge by the pool and eat outdoors, either by the pool or in the pergola next to the orchard of fruit and olive trees. If the relaxing pace of the Tuscan life is too slow for your kids, there is lots to do nearby - visiting villas, gardens, delicious restaurants, and more. If you are looking for a city full of art museums, architecture, shopping and restaurants, Florence is just a short drive away.

Why Kids Love it

Young children will enjoy exploring the garden, finding fruit on the trees and smelling the rosemary bushes. Swimming in the infinity pool overlooking the hills is fun for all ages, while the living/dining room area is open format with wrap-around views of the countryside and works well for families. There are plenty of attractions a short drive away in the Tuscan countryside and the city of Florence.. A crib, high chair, baby toys and a baby bath can be provided on request, and babysitting is easily arranged with the house manager and her family who look after the villa.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 days. The pool is not fenced, but it is isolated by lavender bushes and there are steps separating the pool and house. The pool is not heated but is very warm in the Tuscan sun. The 2 interior floors are also separated by ungated stairs. The house manager, Rossella, and her daughter Manuela, are wonderful with children and are available as a full time/on demand nanny. They both speak excellent English. The chef will prepare wonderful meals for the parents and kids to their taste. Car rental is essential in this area. The villas has central air conditioning, a computer and WiFi access. All bedrooms come with air conditioning, a hairdryer and Chianti Cashmere toiletries.

About the Location

It is 5 minutes from a grocery store, pizzeria and train station, and 15 minutes from the hospital and clinic in Fiesole. Sporty families can bring their rackets for a game at the Anchetta tennis court, 19 minutes away, workout clothes to the Four Seasons gym, 25 minutes away, or golf clubs for a round at the Ugolino golf course, 30 minutes away.

The master bedroom with kingsize bed and ensuite bathroom, and the second bedroom, with a twin bed, pull out bed and an ensuite bathroom, are on the lower floor. The other 2 bedrooms (1 with queensize, the other with a twin bed) are on the upper floor and each has a private bathroom next to it. Bathrooms include bathtubs and showers. The house also has an open plan lounge, kitchen and large living/dining room. There is a large hall and space to play on the main floor and on the upper floor; there is also a studio/office.

Style Notes

Modern Tuscany. The villa's interiors are luxurious and comfortable, with high beamed ceilings and large windows. Traditional fireplace surrounds and terracotta floors have rustic charm, while neutral rugs and upholstery create a calm, relaxing atmosphere in the living room. The dining room features the same garden views and a large inlaid-wood table, and the bright, open-shelved kitchen has a dishwasher, tabletop grill and cheery tile backsplash. We love the heavenly setting, the covered outdoor lounge and the spacious and luxurious bedrooms.

Tuscany, Italy

Olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills

This region of central Italy is as picture-perfect as you’ve heard: all rolling countryside, cypress trees, hazy views and historic stone villages. For those too young to enjoy wine, olive oil and relaxing, there are water parks, child-friendly heritage sites and theme parks, meadows and woods to play in, and donkeys to befriend. Hire a car and explore the surrounding area, buy fresh pasta to cook at home later, or spend afternoons in vineyards deciding which variety of Chianti you like the best.
