Villa di Bagnolo
Villa di Bagnolo is the substantial manor house of a wine and olive oil estate just outside Florence. Believed to date from the 18th century, the building has just been restored and redecorated from top to bottom, with no expense spared. A hilltop position ensures superlative views of Florence and the Tuscan countryside; for an even better look the adventurous can climb to the towers and terrace on the roof. Inside, the large, bright rooms are furnished in valuable antiques with comfortable corners for reading and relaxing. Air-conditioned bedrooms on first floor. A sweeping lawn surrounds the house, leading across to a large pool with an infinity edge and two astro-turf tennis courts. The village of Impruneta is minutes away from the historic centre of Florence and a short drive from many of the famous vineyards and villages of the Chianti region.
Max Occupancy: 14
