Large holiday home for up to 22 people
Large and typical Tuscan villa in beautiful and quiet surroundings
This villa is an ancient tuscan villa which was once part of a larger farm in the estate of La Selva. It is a large independent villa with a charming tower and it was recently renovated and brought back to its original splendor; situated about 800 m from the main villa in La Selva. The villa is situated on a small road that leads to the wonderful medieval village of Montebenichi. This villa and another large villa (our ref. i5.198) at 200 m, were built by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Leopoldo II of Lorena, in fact they are named "Leopoldine".
This holiday house is on three floors and has a separate annexe to one side of the house, which is rented along with the main house. The villa is a delight to look at and interior decors are in typical original Tuscan style, with original antique furnishing. All bedrooms are richly decorated, each with their own bathroom. Terracotta floors and original vaulted and beamed ceilings add to the typical Tuscan character of this extremely welcoming villa. You will feel at home right away.
