A small winding road leaving Florence and heading into the surrounding hills brings you to this charming property. The private gates open onto a wonderfully kept garden made of lawns and flower beds with manicured olive trees. "I Suini" once a barn has been converted into a sophisticated guest house to the Villa, set further up the hill, with stunning views of the Florentine countryside dotted with vineyards. The private pool is set just below the old stone barn and is for the private use of the renters. The owner who lives abroad, if in residence refrains from using the pool. The furnishings and fittings are of the highest level, no monies were spared in the restoration of the old barn with air-conditioned bedrooms. There is a third suite part of the main villa that can also be rented only if added to the rental of the converted barn. This is the perfect location from which to visit and enjoy Florence. The city centre is just 7km away, a quick and cheap taxi ride and you are in Piazza della Signoria sipping a glass of wine or dining al fresco.
