VILLA LEONARDO 30+6

Toscana - Firenze - INCISA VALDARNO

Description:

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Set in the unmistakable scenery of the green hills east of Florence, Villa Leonardo is an elegant residence inside an original 18th century manor house, that stands out for the high quality materials and finishes used for the renovation of the interior, decorated with antique furniture, elegant tapestries and luxurious chandeliers. It has three floors, with panoramic, air-conditioned bedrooms with private bathroom, a well-equipped professional kitchen and an elegant common area on the ground floor that extends out onto a large veranda facing the garden, an exclusive area surrounded by greenery, and a private pool with a wonderful view over the splendid hilly countryside. The high quality of the structure and the wide availability of the spaces offer the opportunity of a relaxing holiday in a wonderful setting, with the possibility of making quick trips to nearby tourist locations; the villa is also perfect for hosting all kinds of events and ceremonies. Located just outside Incisa, and about 2 km from the prestigious outlet The Mall and little towns and villages in the neighbourhood, the villa lies in the heart of one of the most beautiful and varied landscapes of Tuscany, in the upper Valdarno area, between the ridge of the Pratomagno and the nearby region of Chianti, a short distance from Florence and Arezzo and just a few kilometres from the A1 motorway, the Autostrada del Sole, and from the principal tourist destinations of Tuscany (the Chianti villages, San Gimignano, Siena and all the renowned valleys that cross it). Here you can sample delicious, authentic Tuscan food and wine, visit on foot and by bike the beautiful nature reserves of Sant'Antonio and Vallombrosa and the picturesque area of the balze (rocky outcrops).

Interior:

The property consists of a main villa and an annex. The villa has three floors and an attic and, due to its positioning on terraced land, allows outside access from the first floor as well. The main entrance on the ground floor leads into a large hallway with seating area; on two sides of the hallway are two dining rooms. Continuing on, you come to the professional kitchen and then to two double bedrooms (with windows without a view), both with ensuite bathroom with shower. The floor is completed by a guest bathroom and laundry. On the first floor, which can also be reached directly from the outside through an entrance at the back of the house, are four double bedrooms and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds), all with private bathroom with shower, and a two-level suite consisting of, on the bottom level, a large living room with outside access and, on the top level (reached up a flight of stairs), a double bedroom and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) sharing a bathroom with shower. An internal staircase leads up to the second floor with four double bedrooms, each with private bathroom, three with shower and one with ensuite tub and shower. The attic is composed of a double bedroom with bathroom with shower and a double bed in a room with a 1.30 m high ceiling. This last room has a bathroom with shower. In the four larger rooms it is possible to add a single bed. ANNEX. Just few meters away from the main villa and close to the pool area, it consists of a suite with seating room, double bedroom and a bathroom with shower.

Park:

The vast, luxuriant, enclosed park that surrounds the property extends over two terraces in front of the villa entrances (on the ground floor and on the first floor) for about 6000 sq m, 4000 of which are lawn with more than 1300 plants and tall trees. The garden with its large set-up areas is characterised by a constant breeze and induces guests to relax in peace with the complicity of the beautiful surrounding countryside (the proximity of the Autostrada del Sole is hidden by the rich vegetation although sometimes, in certain climatic conditions, the sound of traffic can be heard in the distance). In the immediate vicinity of the villa entrances is a veranda for outdoor dining and a seating area. The portico with sofas and tables in front of the annex and facing the pool, is the perfect place for enjoying an apéritif at sunset. The parking area is located immediately after the entrance gate, near the main entrance, with space for up to 20 cars.

Swimming Pool:

The lovely, south-facing pool area lies in a panoramic position just a few steps from the annex and about 20 m from the villa and is reached across the garden along a paved path bordered by flowering shrubs. The large stone-paved and lawn sunbathing area, equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs, umbrellas and tables, surrounds the rectangular pool which measures 6 x 12 m with a depth of 1.50 m. The pool is lined in PVC and has salt treatment purification, internal lights and Roman steps and a ladder for access to the water. There is a hot and cold-water shower, a small bathroom and speakers. Completing the area is a covered gazebo with a seating area with armchairs and a handy fridge. The pool is open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October. The pool can be heated on request from May to October.

Location and distances


Villa Leonardo lies in a perfect geographical position, with connections to numerous places of historical, artistic and gastronomic interest through an excellent road and motorway network. The villa is easily reachable from the airports of the region, Florence is about 51 km away and Pisa 112 km away, and is also well connected to the train station of Figline Valdarno on the Rome-Florence direct line. The Incisa-Reggello exit of the A1 motorway is just 5 km away. Within a few kilometres are small villages, reference points for shopping. About 5 km away is Figline e Incisa Valdarno, located in the eastern part of the province of Florence which is about 30 km away. Incisa lies in an area that touches the Arno valley and then ascends along the slopes of the Pratomagno ridge; beyond the valley crossed by the river Arno are the Chianti hills that separate the Valdarno area from the province of Siena. Below are the famous “balze” (rocky erosions formed following the drying-up of a large lake that covered the Arno valley) that flank cultivated fields, residential areas and industrial and commercial establishments. The hilly area, cultivated with terraces, is crossed by the Setteponti road, the old route between Arezzo and Vallombrosa, along which numerous CAI (Club Alpino Italiano) paths wind through the area, allowing you to explore, on foot or by mountain bike, the entire area of the balze with its many rural buildings and Romanesque churches. The area is particularly rich in nature reserves, including the Area Naturale Protetta di Interesse Locale Foresta di Sant'Antonio (Natural Protected Area of Local Interest the Forest of Sant'Antonio), a green lung of particular relevance for the variety of botanical species and for the native fauna, and the famous Forest of Vallombrosa (with relative Abbey), a biogenetic nature reserve, rich in coniferous woods, with an experimental arboretum consisting of 3200 specimens of 1200 different species from all over the world. The park is full of streams and springs and there are numerous hiking routes and marked nature trails which can be travelled by mountain bike or on foot. Finally, just two kilometres from the property is the prestigious fashion outlet The Mall, and in less of half an hour is reachable the Prada outlet.
