The Villa Collalto is a truly exceptional property located in a quiet hillside position within just 10 minutes of the "centro storico" of Florence. The property, dating back to the 15th century, has been painstakingly restored throughout, just two years ago, to offer every modern comfort as well as stunning original features.
Spread over five floors the villa sits nestled into the hillside surrounded by its impressive terraced gardens and olive groves. From most of the windows and from all the gardens the breath taking views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan hills can be appreciated. In total there are 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 4 reception rooms, 2 kitchens and a spa room.
Features such as original frescoes, coffered ceilings, majestic stone fireplaces, pietra serena stairways and antique terracotta flooring are found throughout with every detail having been restored meticulously by local craftsmen.
Gardens & Grounds
The property is surrounded by 2 hectares of private land and is approached by a track leading up through the property's olive groves. The gardens include a recently added plunge pool, an original grotto, fountains, a pergola draped in vines and many established fruit trees.
There is also an annex in the lower gardens with 250 m2 of floor area with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms - this additional space is ideal for staff accommodation or could be modernised to provide additional accommodation and/or games room.
Located just 10 minutes from central Florence allows one to visit all the city's attractions by car, bus or taxi but also explore the countryside and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the location. The charming hillside town of Fiesole is also just five minutes away where a range of services and restaurants can be found. 25 minutes to Florence airport and 1 hour to Pisa airport.
