This extraordinary villa in Tuscany was built by architect Massimiliano Soldani as his own residence between 1700 and 1750, and is now a perfect entertainment venue or holiday villa with exclusive amenities.
The interior is styled with careful attention to detail, including eclectic décor and antiques. Unwind in the multiple spacious living rooms, cook Tuscan feasts in one of the two well appointed kitchens (one is for catering use with a wood-burning fireplace), gather in the formal dining room, then play a game of billiards or ping pong.
The first floor boasts a chandelier-glad sitting room and eight charming bedrooms. For groups of more than 17 people, the second floor, with seven additional bedrooms split into two apartments, can comfortably accommodate up to 33.
Your private Tuscan wonderland lies just outside among centuries-old cypress trees, olive groves, vineyards. With a BBQ, private pool and tennis court, and gardens to stroll through, it’s easy to stay busy – or completely relaxed – during your stay.
The ancient villages of Bucine and Mercatale Valdarno are minutes away with a few local restaurants. Wine tasting is a must, with the villa bordering the Chianti region, and festivals extend throughout the region year ‘round.
