Situated in open countryside just outside Florence City, La Florenza has been completely and lovingly restored and turned into a beautiful and comfortable holiday home featuring Tuscan antiques and ceramics. The house is part of a large estate which includes a 17th century villa.
The owners live on the premises and are always available for assistance. Guests at La Florenza have shared use of a swimming pool that is located next to the property. The facilities include: private parking, barbeque, television, mountain bikes, possibility of playing golf at Golf Club Ugolino and Club le Pavoniere, horse back riding at 2 miles, fishing at walking distance. The nearest 'equipped' town is Lastra a Signa at 1 mile, which is also the distance to the nearest bus stop, from where a bus to Florence departs every 15 minutes. Florence, cradle of the Renaissance, is home to fabulous museums, palaces, and churches (many are veritable art galleries), and houses some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world. The library of San Lorenzo is a magnificent exhibition of Michelangelo's architectural genius. Wander some of the oldest streets in the city until you reach the Arno River, cross the Arno via Florence's world famous "shopping bridge" the Ponte Vecchio, and experience the "newest" area of Florence, the Oltrano.
