Villa Olmetto is a beautifully converted stone farmhouse and guest house with a private pool, part of a very small private hamlet, overlooking Florence. The setting is magical, with a small winding road that leads up from Florence to the estates grounds, with terraces and terraces of olive groves and cypress trees witnessing the beautify of the surrounding hills that circle this famous city. The old farmhouse was restored two years ago and has been furnished very comfortably, with lots of living space. There is a great kitchen that leads out onto a large shaded patio with a dining area and a modern seating area facing the garden and private swimming pool. The three bedrooms in the main house are spacious and air conditioned with ensuite bathrooms as is one of the living rooms. Across the flag stoned square is the fully air-conditioned guest house, perfect for teenagers with a modern living room with a day bed and down stairs a bedroom and bathroom. The quality for detail is very high and the owners have lots of experience in managing even our most demanding clients. This is the perfect location from which to visit Florence as the Chianti in total comfort in a superb setting. You can even reach Florence by bus as by taxi and there is a well-known restaurant within easy walking distance, called ‘La Gargotta” with a fantastic shaded dining terrace other than offering wonderful Tuscan meals.
