Villa Gabbiano is a beautiful, spacious estate that still manages to feel intimate. Up to 14 guests can comfortably enjoy the main villa and adjacent cottage, a private pool, garden area, and the amenities available to all properties on the Vecchietto Estate.
Villa Aquila sits in a stunning location, surrounded by nature: a lovely garden, big lawns, and tall trees line the property. The main villa can host up to 6 guests, but there is also a cottage available for booking on the property, which can host another 5 guests.
The villa is an easy drive from Florence – about forty minutes. The nearest train station, located in Figline Valdarno is a 10 minute drive from the property.
This villa is part of the luxurious Vecchietto Estate, a sprawling property that offers guests tennis courts and pools, as well as the option to book guided bike tours or excursions, yoga lessons, and traditional cooking courses. There is also a nearby shop Il Mercatale in the town of Montevarchi that sells local organic wines, olive oil, farm-fresh produce and other local delicacies.
The estate is located in the coveted Arno Valley, between the towns of Reggello and Figline Valdarno. It is an excellent home base to explore all the Tuscany has to offer and a very easy, brief train ride into Florence. Figline Valdarno has shops, supermarket, restaurants and a handy train station.
The picturesque town of Reggello is known for its abundance of agricultural products, which culminates each December with a international olive oil exhibition. Also explore Greve and Gaiole, famous for their Chianti wines.
Some of the interesting local sites to visit are the towns of Pontassieve, the Castle of Sammezzano, and the Vallombrosa Abbey.
For Italian fashion enthusiasts you couldn't be more conveniently located to Tuscany's famous The Mall which tourists and Italians alike search out for top designer fashion at a discount from the major fashion brands Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Dior, La Perla, Prada, Todd, Loro Piana, to name a few.
Villa Gabbiano is a classic Italian countryside villa. With a sleek white exterior and traditional green shutters, plus architectural features like a traditional loggia and serene fountain, this villa combines regional charm with luxury and comfort. The spacious property includes the villa, the cottage, a private pool, outdoor seating area, and gardens.
Guests enter the villa through a traditional Tuscan “loggia,” which is a covered porch area usually supported by columns and arches.
