Luxury country villa with pool in private Tuscan Estate, beautifully appointed throughout, in peaceful panoramic location in Tuscan hills, only 10 miles from Florence. Villa Napoleone accommodates up to 7 guests in 3 double bedrooms and 1 single.
The main house of a privately owned Tuscan country estate consisting of two luxury residences nestled in 10 hectares of private protected parkland in the outskirts of Florence and 1 mile from country hamlet San Donato in Collina, Villa Napoleone dates back to the 11th century and was built as Guard Tower, hence the stunning panoramic position.
It was bought by current family in 1988 and turned into the comfortable most elegant family home it is today. It is surrounded by olive groves, lemon trees and beautiful gardens created by famous Italian landscape gardener Pietro Porcinai.
The interior has been sympathetically renovated by current owner Anna, a skilled interior designer, who mixed antique original pieces with modern designs (and comforts) while fully preserving the character of the house.
The result is a sophisticated and welcoming home, true to its heritage.
Villa Napoleone is arranged on two levels and spreads over about 500 sqm (approx. 5500 sqfeet) plus the outdoor areas, perfect for family reunions and for entertaining friends, as well as for couple looking for a luxurious romantic retreat.
Villa Napoleone can accommodate up to 7 guests on a self-catering basis, in three beautiful bright double bedrooms and a lovely single. There are 4 bathrooms: 2 luxurious en-suites (to the master bedroom and to the single bedroom), a detached full bathroom and a delightful powder room with toilet and basin. All bedrooms and 3 of the 4 bathrooms are on first floor.
On the ground floor you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, an elegant sun lit double living room/drawing room with fireplace, utility room, and two dining rooms, the largest of which features a fireplace and large glass doors leading to a truly stunning terrace with unbelievable views (ideal for sipping cocktails while enjoying the sunset).
Breathtaking uninterrupted views of the Tuscan countryside can be enjoyed from every room of the house and a large stone paved patio area at the front provides the perfect setting for breakfast
Every room is individually decorated to extremely high standard: original Biedermaier furniture, rare empire paintings, magnificent mirrors, handmade linen curtains, large comfy white sofas create a bright sophisticated atmosphere throughout. A magnificent stone built gothic arch dating back to the year 1100 creates movement and defines the different living areas. Sand stone floors, two lovely antique fireplaces and walls finished with Venetian plaster in pastel hues ooze italian craftsmanship and complete the truly unique decorating scheme. The bedrooms are all individually styled and furnished with very comfortable beds. The bathrooms are finished in marble and a Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower are in the master bathroom. All Frette linen is of the highest quality.
The outdoor area is just as beautiful as the interior. Villa Napoleone sits in 10 hectares of private parkland with olive groves, flowering shrubs and landscaped gardens with lovely open views over the Tuscan hills.
The Villa features a private salt water swimming pool measuring 14 m x 8 m, open May to September (inclusive) and private landscaped panoramic garden decorated with flowers and precious large terracotta vases.
All outdoor areas are furnished with elegant outdoor furniture (comfortable loungers with white cushions and white umbrellas are in the pool area, BBQ and dining tables and chairs are on the terrace and patio).
The villa is equipped with everything needed for a comfortable enjoyable stay: central heating, air conditioning, satellite TV, DVD player, iPod dock, wi-fi internet access and a fully equipped kitchen with hob, oven, log burning stove, american fridge/frezer, ice maker, coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and an abundance of crockery and pans. Hair dryers are provided in every bathroom. Secure car parking is of course available on-site.
