The Aquila Villa and its adjacent cottage are perfect for nature lovers, surrounded by trees and a beautiful garden. Guests can enjoy a private, tranquil retreat in the heart of Tuscany, with access to the all of the amenities offered on 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, and there is also a cottage available that can host another 5 guests. For privacy the cottage is rented only with the villa.

The villa is an easy drive from Florence about 40 minutes. The nearest train station in Figline Valdarno is a 10 minute drive and we found it makes the trip into Florence easy.

This villa is on the luxurious Vecchietto Estate, a sprawling property that offers tennis courts and pools, guided bike tours and excursions, yoga lessons, and traditional cooking courses. On the property is a bistro and shop with local wine and other fine local products. We enjoyed a fine lunch here when inspecting. A shuttle is available for local trips.

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. 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 an international olive oil exhibition. Also nearby 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 fashion enthusiasts you the famous The Mall is very convenient, where tourists and Italians alike find top designer fashion at a discount from the major fashion brands Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Dior, La Perla, Prada, Todd, Loro Piana, and more.


Villa Aquila is a classic Italian countryside villa. With a sleek white exterior and traditional green shutters, this villa combines regional charm with luxury and comfort.


Ascend the steps and enter through the wrought iron door into a bright, spacious entrance hall that is flooded with light.

The large living room is a perfect gathering place for cozy evenings by the fireplace, or warm afternoons lounging on the sofas. On the ground floor also find an elegant dining room with period furniture; a fully-equipped kitchen with original ceramic tile decoration, and a powder room.

On the second floor, there are three spacious bedrooms, each with stunning views of the villa grounds. An additional living room on this level offers a nice place for other gatherings. Each bedroom is air conditioned and has an ensuite bathroom.
