Nestled in the heart of Tuscany, only a few kilometres outside of Florence, Villa Duchessa is a spectacular 13th-century mansion refurbished to its current splendour with a lovely boudoir, exquisite artworks that lend an even more luxurious ambiance to the villa, and frescoes to complete the Italian marvel. Perched on the hills over Castelfiorentino, Villa Duchessa is an impressive and evocative destination with views sweeping the towers of San Gimignano.
A sacred chapel resides in the garden alongside a private pool while you have 25 acres of olive groves at your doorstep. With six bedrooms in the main villa and annexe, Villa Duchessa can easily accommodate up to 12 guests while you can even enjoy modern amenities like outdoor BBQ, alfresco dining, library, TV, and more.
There are six gorgeous bedrooms at Villa Duchessa with unique interiors. No two bedrooms are the same. They are furnished with double beds and single beds that promise a good night’s rest. Drapes on the walls striped bedding, rich vermilion tones, elaborate ceilings with beautiful design and chandeliers, fireplaces, and cabinets add up to create a magnificent effect. The rooms are air-conditioned and sunlit. The ensuite bathrooms are equally luxurious and fitted with modern amenities.
Villa Duchessa features exquisite gardens teeming with cypresses, native flowers, and olive trees. The sweeping views over the hills can be enjoyed from the swimming pool that resides in the garden. You have a quaint sitting area on the poolside for your breakfast or evening drinks. The pool deck also has deck chairs for sunbathing. As you head to the upstairs garden that features an ancient tree flourishing in the warm weather, you will also find a sitting area on the terrace with spectacular views.
Apart from the stunning outdoor area, the indoors at Villa Duchessa are equally luxurious and comfortable. Since the villa is a restored mansion from the 13th century, the interiors are formidable. Exquisite mouldings, Renaissance art on the walls, intricately carved stones, carpets on the floor, and other unique elements that elevate the room. The windows overlook the view while allowing abundant sunlight to flood the room. The terracotta tiles and wood-panelled ceilings, a fireplace, gilded mirrors, etc. open the door to another world.
The comfortable sofas are perfect to relax, kick back, and spend quality time indoors. The dining area is another beautiful room with coral painted walls decorated with several white and painted dinner plates. The dining table is solid wood and can accommodate all guests. The kitchen is modern and fully-equipped with stainless steel appliances and other amenities.
Villa Duchessa offers you the best of two worlds – one that is of a different time when lords and duchesses ruled and one that is modern and holiday-friendly. You have a luxurious house where you can stay while enjoying modern comforts like a daily breakfast, wi-fi, and BBQ.
For gourmands and wine enthusiasts, Tuscany is the ideal holiday destination with its world-famous vineyards and quaint Italian restaurants. Villa Duchessa resides in the middle of Florence and San Gimignano to offer the best of both and then some. Enjoy a walk along streets lined with Cyprus trees, relish a glass of wine with some cheese, visit quaint fairy-tale towns, and tour the art galleries like Uffizi to witness the skill of consummate Italian artists.
