A RESTORED OLD BARN
OFFERING A HOLIDAY VILLA WITH SWIMMING POOL AND GARDEN
Holiday villa west of Florence, with swimming pool and garden
Villa Graziani is a holiday villa in the Mugello (west of Florence) in Tuscany, sleeping 6+1.
This centuries-old hay barn has been restored in collaboration with a famous Italian architect. It is one of a larger set of buildings (two owners in residence), all preserving the structural features of the old Tuscan farmhouses.
Villa Graziani is surrounded on all sides by the green hills of Mugello, an area where the environment is carefully protected, and near where the painter Giotto was born. During restoration, special attention was given to re-using natural materials: precious woods such as elm and handmade terracotta tiles were used to lay the floors, and natural marbles such as travertine were chosen for the bathrooms.
The furniture of the rooms is a clever and pleasant mix of old Tuscan and modern Italian styles. The garden, exclusively for the use of guests, was created by adding plants typical of the Mugello hills. It includes a 12x6m swimming pool (May-October) with a characteristic water fountain, also for the exclusive use of the guests at the villa.
