An elegant old villa built in the early 16th century, Villa dei Medici sleeps nine over five bedrooms. It has four bathrooms and a swimming pool.

Sitting among vineyards and olive-clad hills 40km west of Florence, this is the classic Tuscan setting. This lovely old house is 5km from Vinci, which was home to Leonardo and gave the Renaissance genius his name. The old city has lost none of its charm over the intervening centuries, and it is an excellent starting point for excursions around Tuscany.

Set in a marvellous landscape rich in culture (and with fantastic views) this recently renovated property is surrounded by acres of completely enclosed grounds: access is via a remote-controlled, wrought iron gate. This then is the ideal spot for a completely relaxing holiday in Tuscany. Its beautiful garden has extensive lawns and olive groves, garden furniture, a barbecue, a fully-equipped covered loggia, and a brand new 12m swimming pool.

Skilful renovation has only enhanced the original features of this fine old Tuscan villa. It has a country-style fireplace and terracotta-tiled floors, while the bedrooms have parquet flooring. Yet it marries the traditional charms and comforts with every modern comfort. Your relaxation is assured during your vacation in Tuscany, thanks to satellite TV, dishwasher and a good oven.

On request there can be organised fresco or ceramic decoration courses. You can enjoy a tourist companion/touristic guide service and excursions with environmental guide.
