This majestic Villa is located on a rectangular terrace on the top of a hill near Florence.
The Villa located in one of the most beautiful parts of Tuscany, not many miles to the south of Florence, was built early in the sixteenth century, and if there be any truth in a persistent local tradition, it was designed by no less a person than Michelangelo.
The entrance is a magic boulevard surrounded by unique cypresses.

One of the most iconic elements of the Villa is the garden which is divided on two different terraces: the upper terrace where holm oaks, horse chestnuts and cypresses were planted in the 19th century; the lower terrace is an “Italian-style” garden with square-shaped flowerbeds and pots of lemons planted in XXX century.
In 1933 the property was purchased by the brothers Carlo and Giulio Marchi. The brothers completed the extraordinary architecture, restoring the original Michelangelo design.

In 1938, the famous landscape architect Pietro Porcinai created a rectangular swimming pool, in yellow and grey quartzite with a border in pietra serena, set in the lawn near the access road: the position of the pool was studied in such a way as to reflect the facade of the villa in the mirror of water.
The panoramic view from the courtyard, the architectural choices and the improvements made over the centuries make this Villa one of the most beautiful and well preserved villas in Florence.
No on-site accommodation. There are lots of accommodation options nearby and in Florence.
