Tucano Villa is a classic Italian villa in the Tuscan countryside where you can enjoy a beautiful garden and private swimming pool. The villa and cottage offer access to the all of the amenities offered on Vecchietto Estate.

Location

The location is surrounded by nature: a lovely garden, big lawns, and tall trees line the property. The main villa can host up to 9 guests and the cottage can host another 6 guests for a total of 15. 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 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.

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.
