The villa sits in a privately owned tuscan estate of 8 hectares of secluded protected parkland of olive trees and lemon trees orchards, shrubs and panoramic landscaped gardens overlooking the Florentine hills. It was built in the 13th century as a Guard Tower (not surprising, given the privileged panoramic hilltop position!) and sympathetically renovated to provide a luxurious comfortable home. The property is arranged over two floors and covers a surface of 400 m². Amazing countryside views can be enjoyed from every room in the house. Beautifully appointed throughout, the villa can accommodate up to 6 people in 3 bright double bedrooms, all en-suite and air conditioned on the first floor, where you will also find a beautiful study/reading room. Each bedroom is individually styled with made to measure locally crafted furniture and most comfortable large beds. One of the bathroom has a walk in shower, the master has a large Jacuzzi hot tub and the third bathroom has a bath tub with shower over. On the ground floor there is the living area: two dining rooms, a bright living room with floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to a large panoramic terrace/solarium with seating area for 10 and a fully equipped kitchen with wood burning stove and direct access to large paved patio — perfect for breakfast. The outdoor consists of 8 hectares of private protected parkland consisting of landscaped gardens, olive and fruit trees, an 8x14 meter salt water private pool with solarium area equipped with daybeds and parasols and two shady fully furnished patio areas. Ground floor Formal dining room with fireplace, large living room with further antique fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass door leading to large panoramic terrace solarium, second dining room with glass door and access to garden, fully equipped kitchen with wood burning stove and glass door opening to large paved patio area, utility room and a service bathroom/powder room.

Villa Napoleon is in totally secluded and peaceful area, yet we are only 10 miles from Florence historic city center and close to all major attractions of the area: the Chianti Classico landscapes (and wine Estate!) as well as charming San Gimignano, Greve in Chianti and even Siena are very easy to reach, not too mention all the borghi and old churches that are scattered around waiting to be discovered (with their lovely restaurants...!) We are close to all amenities, however the location is rural and own transport is strongly reccommended. Golf courses, horse riding stables and luxury outlet shopping are all available nearby. Check-in between 4 and 6 pm, check-out between 8 and 10 am. Arrival/departures at times which are different from the above must be agreed at time of booking and may incur in extra charges to cover for staff cost.

Swimming pool open from mid May to end of September inclusive. We are close to all amenities, but the location is rural and own car is advised.
