Location

Villa Maragone is a luxury escape tucked away in the Tuscan countryside. This villa is perfect for up to 10 guests looking for a private, quiet retreat.

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.

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 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 fashion enthusiasts 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.

Exterior
