Villa La Tavernaccia in Florence is an exquisitely restored estate built in the 18th century, surrounded by 32 acres of private garden and evergreen forest right in the prestigious Chianti countryside. La Tavernaccia is a haven of peace and privacy, richly endowed with all the comforts and facilities you expect from a luxury mansion, yet very close to all the main attractions of Tuscany.
All the interiors have been renovated by a Italian designer, Ilaria Miani, who worked to ensure that the chic and historical soul of the villa happily coexisted with a modern and lively taste for colors, space, and light. All the furniture is chosen from an extensive collection of family antiquities, from inlaid Tuscan tables from the eighteenth century to Venetian wooden arm-chairs from the 1700s, and blended with unique contemporary furnishing and high-level amenities.
Take a walk in the private park, following old Tuscan routes that offer the most spectacular views. Sip a cup of freshly-toasted coffee on the garden overlooking the unique skyline of Florence, from the Giotto’s Belltower to Brunelleschi’s Dome. When the sun is down, take a swim in the heated pool, the starry sky as your ceiling.
