Villa Duca - Tuscany, Italy


Just minutes away by car or bus from the historical center, the freshly renovated Villa Duca is set atop one of most prestigious hills of Florence, peacefully surrounded by olive groves, cypress trees, and beautifully manicured gardens. This elegant luxury three story villa features a picturesque panoramic courtyard with direct views of the Florentine countryside. A glorious boulevard of grand cypress trees leads the guests to this sun-flooded home, perfectly suited for sophisticated living and entertaining.

OUTSIDE FEATURES--for outdoor lounging and dining, a furnished portico faces the courtyard featuring a charming oval water fountain. Expansive panoramic garden surrounding the villa, perfect to rest and enjoy relaxing time with family and friends and ideal for children to blow off some steam. Private salt-water swimming pool bordered by lush landscaping including flowery plants and fragrant rosemary bushes. Towering cypress and palm trees add privacy and a sliver of shade to this distinctive retreat. The sundeck is completed with comfortable lounges, umbrellas and a dining table for wonderful poolside meals.
