Location

Villa Aquila is 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 adjoining cottage 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, bike tours and excursions, yoga lessons, and traditional cooking courses. On the property is a bistro and shop with local wine and other finel local products. We enjoyed a fine lunch here when inspecting.

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. 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 the famous The Mall is nearby, where tourists and Italians alike find top designer fashion at a discount from the major fashion brands Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Dior, 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.

Interior

The large living room in the villa 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.

The cottage is never rented separately from the villa, ensuring privacy. The spacious, bright cottage comes equipped with three bedrooms, living room and a kitchen and dining area.
