Villa Le Rose
Luxury Villa in the heart of Tuscany
Dating back to the 15th century, Villa le Rose is a truly remarkable and elegant Renaissance villa situated in the spectacular hills of Florence and within walking distance of the city. The villa is located at the end of an avenue of cypress trees on the southern hills of Florence, immersed in the spectacular countryside surrounding the famous city. Its location, only ten minutes drive from the city, but with all the advantages, comfort and beauty of a beautiful country residence, is one of its truly unique points. It is without doubt the closest villa to Florence in terms of villas of its stature.
The layout of the villa is typical of aristocratic Renaissance villas. It is centred around a paved courtyard, surrounded by formal gardens and set in a productive agricultural landscape. The villa itself measures 1,000 square metres and can accommodate up to fourteen people in seven bedrooms.
The villa is set in an eleven-hectare park surrounded by a Tuscan landscape of olive groves and picturesque hills. A lake lies beyond the olive grove that provides water for the property's wildlife and gardens. Given the size of the park, there are a number of appropriate landing sites for guests arriving by helicopter. The villa is surrounded by two beautiful and tranquil gardens. On one side is the Giardino Porcinai which contains the swimming pool, named after the famous landscape architect and garden designer Pietro Porcinai. On the other side of the villa is the Cedar Garden, named after the 300-year-old Cedar of Lebanon that forms the central point of the garden.
The villa is fully staffed to provide guests with maximum comfort during their stay. Guests will be well served by the resident housekeeping couple, the chef and the concierge service that provides 24-hour assistance.
Villa le Rose has 7 double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and can comfortably accommodate up to 14 people.
The ground floor, decorated with frescoes, consists of a large entrance hall, a blue lounge, a study, a ballroom which is one of the oldest rooms in the villa, the dining room which can accommodate up to 20 people and a bedroom with bathroom.
The first floor comprises 5 double bedrooms each with its own bathroom and a double bedroom which is equipped with a kitchenette and its own bathroom.
The entire lower floor retains its original 15th century appearance. The fully equipped kitchen is open, spacious and bright and features a traditional Tuscan fireplace and bread oven. Next to the kitchen is the breakfast room.
