An elegant and meticulously restored hilltop villa just outside Florence with stunning views over the Tuscan hills.
Villa San Donato is a beautifully appointed 500 sq meter villa arranged over two floors. The villa can accommodate up to 6 people in 3 en-suite double bedrooms in the main house, plus an additional 2 people in the luxury suite annexed to it, which is rented separately, on request, and only with the main villa.
On the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen, with log burning stove and direct access to a large paved patio area (perfect for breakfasts), a large bright formal dining room with antique fireplace, a smaller additional dining room with glass door and direct access to the garden, a double salon/drawing room with a further fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to the stunning terrace, fully furnished for al fresco dining and perfect for glorious aperitifs in front of the sunset. The terrace enjoys incredible views over the Tuscan hills.
A further service bathroom/powder room and a utility room complete the ground floor.
On the first floor are 3 large bright double bedrooms, all individually styled, with en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning, plus there is also a beautiful study/reading room. One of the bathroom has a walk in shower, the other two have a bath tub with shower over. They are all beautifully finished with Portuguese marble countertops and floors and luxury fittings.
Original Biedermeier pieces of furniture, rare empire paintings and magnificent mirrors perfectly compliment the handmade linen curtains and the large comfy white sofas, while the antique fireplaces, the sandstone floors and the pastel hues of the Venetian plaster remind you of the heritage of this sumptuous home.
In the lowest floor of the villa there is an independent luxury suite, with own access. It is a lovely bright studio room with 4 poster bed, sitting area, built in wardrobes, fireplace, air conditioning, bathroom with shower, a small but fully equipped little kitchen and private enclosed patio area with luxury outdoor furniture.
The luxury suite is rented only on request and only in addition to the main house for parties of 7 or 8 people.
The outdoor area is just as beautiful as the interior, surrounded by large, totally private panoramic landscaped gardens with olive groves, lemon trees, mediterranean flowers and shrubs and a stylish salt water swimming pool (8 x 14 meters, open May to September). The solarium area around the pool is furnished with comfy elegant daybeds and parasols, and shady retreats and hideaway spots are scattered all around the gardens for you to explore.
