The Tucano villa is wonderful for families or friends. The location is surrounded by nature: a lovely garden, big lawns, and tall trees line the property. The main villa can host up to 8 guests, but there is also a cottage available for booking on the property, which can host another 3 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.
Tucano Villa is a classic Italian countryside villa. With a sleek white exterior and traditional green shutters, this villa combines regional charm with luxury and comfort. There is a private infinity pool and a lovely shaded outdoor loggia with lounge chairs and outdoor dining.
A stunning entrance hall greets guests as they enter the villa. French doors open onto a traditional “loggia,” or covered porch area, which has a seating area and BBQ that are perfect for dinners alfresco.
The ground has everything guests will need to feel at home: a comfortable living room, elegant dining room, a fully equipped Tuscan-style kitchen, and a bathroom. Each room has traditional Tuscan details: original tiling, beautiful artwork, and beamed wooden ceilings, to name a few. There is a half bath on this floor.
Up the stairs, guests will find one bedroom with a queen size bed and two bedrooms with dual-king beds; all three of these bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Bathrooms have tubs with shower sprayer over. There is also a smaller living room on this level.
On the third level, there is a bedroom with 2 single beds that can be joined to form a dual-king, and this room has a stunning view of the villa grounds. Just across from this room is a small living area with a convertible single sofa bed. A bathroom with shower on this floor is shared by both rooms.
The adjacent Tucano Cottage can be rented for larger parties, or if guests want a fully private experience in the Tucano Villa.
