Villa di Citille
Villa Di Citille is the main body of a beautiful 15th century villa, part in a small hamlet in the hills just minutes from Florence. Large iron gates lead into the front garden with a lawn facing Florence, walk through the large entrance hall and you find yourself in a magical, paved courtyard, that leads into the garden where the private salt water swimming pool is found surrounded by a well kept lawn. Within the courtyard there is a beautiful dining area as a seating area with the kitchen just a few paces away. This is where you shall sit and enjoy the soft light at the end of the day and in the evening and let time slip away. The interior of the villa is just as special as the courtyard with a very comfortable and large sitting room, a very elegant dining room and a very well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are set on the first and second floor and have tall ceilings all very tastefully furnished. This is a fantastic base from which to visit Florence as the rest of Tuscany, a cook can also be arranged as cooking lessons for those interested in taking some Italian culture back to their home country.
