Settignano Estate is comprised of three elegant, air conditioned country villa rentals near Florence situated within walking distance from the village of Settignano and only six kilometers from the center of Florence. These homes provide an ideal base for visitors who seek to experience the best of both city and country life. The idyllic grounds (3.70 acres) are surrounded by olive and fruit trees and offer stunning views over Florence. In addition, a new (shared) pool has recently been completed. The Estate's three units sleep two, four, and six guests, and rented together can accommodate up to 12 people.* This makes it a perfect venue for a large group consisting of family or friends to experience the splendor and comfort of Tuscan hospitality.
Settignano is a picturesque borgo located on a hillside northeast of Florence, offering spectacular views of the vibrant city below. Its name is famous as it gave birth to three of the principle sculptors of the Florentine Renaissance: Desiderio da Settignano, Bernardo, and Antonio Rossellino. The young Michelangelo lived here as well in a nearby farmhouse.
The gated property is accessed by a paved road. Each separate unit has an independent entrance. Unit One is shared with the owner, a well-known interior designer who speaks fluent English and French and will be happy to help her guests during their stay. The houses lay in a classical Tuscan setting and were once used to store young lemon tree saplings during winter months and olives during fall crop. They are now converted into comfortable country homes where you can find a perfect balance between modern and traditional amenities and furnishings. The property is landscaped with flowers and herbs; the green garden is loved and looked after by a caretaker and provides fresh vegetables that are used in the kitchen. Each unit offers lovely outdoor spaces to relax or dine al fresco.
The very well-behaved dog belonging to the owner lives on the property.
*Please note: Units One and Two can only be rented together.
Included in the rental price: Daily maid service (except Sunday), linen/towel change twice weekly, heating, final cleaning, Internet connection, air conditioning, welcome dinner and grocery shopping
