VILLA GRANDUCA

Starting from € 2890 per day

General

If you are looking to enjoy a unique vacation in a spectacular location, this Villa is the right place. The 1300 Mansion was once one of the twelve sumptuous hunting residences of the Grand Duke Ferdinando I de’ Medici, grandson of the famous Lorenzo Il Magnifico (Lorenzo the Magnificent). Built on a hill of olive trees and vineyard overlooking the valley that connects Florence to Lucca, the villa has retained its original architectural beauty and grandiosity. Yous will be able to reside in such a unique and truly special atmosphere while enjoying the enchanting Italian garden, the beautiful park, the numerous bedrooms and the large swimming pool. The property can accommodate 12 people divided in 4 master double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, 2 twin bedrooms all with en-suite bathroom,  9 bathrooms in total All the air conditioned rooms are decorated with antique furniture and paintings, venetian glass chandeliers and persian carpets, while all the bathrooms have been recently renewed.

The Villa was built almost 500 years ago and, despite the continuous renovations and comforts that it features nowadays, it displays all its original themed decorations, making the villa very unique - the billiard room, in front of the original Renaissance sacred Chapel, the Hunting room, or the Armors corridor, with impressive iron decorations, are just a few examples.

Although during spring and summer guests love to enjoy the majority of their snacks or proper meals outside in the garden alfresco or by the pool, the castle features an impressive dining room with a wooden table and royal chairs.

The villa is fourty minutes by car from the international airports of Florence and Pisa and ten minutes from the railway station of Montecatini Terme (trains to Florence and Pisa leave every hour). Particularly recommended for Golf and SPA lovers, the house guarantees privacy and tranquillity, even if it’s close to any sort of modern commodity.

Private events are allowed on request, Staff service is at disposal all days, and a Cook is available  to prepare all meals.

Area Information

This valley where the property is located is an original mix of famous thermal resorts, intact nature and ancient Medieval villages. It is found in the deep and secret heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Lucca and, for centuries, was a crossroads for culture, trade and meetings. Her hills conceal villages and castles that from the “Swiss Pesciatina ‘’ stretches out until Vinci where the genius of Leonardo da Vinci was born. Versilia Club beaches as well as Chianti most famous wineries and historical gardens are within one hour of reach. From the chestnut woods, passing through the landscape scattered with olives trees, we reach the valley where the precious waters of Montecatini Terme and the steam of Monsummano Terme’s grotta are born, and where the natural reserve of Padule di Fucecchio extends. This is the homeland of Pinocchio, the most famous puppet in the world.

There are several remarkable Art towns in the area (Pisa, Lucca, Firenze) and also some beautiful and relatively unknown medieval towns like (Pietrasanta, Vinci). In the area there are also a number of interesting contemporary gardens as well as some of the most incredible private villas of the world. There are several tennis courts nearby the estate. The golf club is less than ten minutes away. The baths and spas date back to the fourteenth century and nowadays there are nine fully-functioning ‘terme’ spread around the town. Elegant, peaceful and relaxing, it is a perfect resting place. Enriched waters have been drunk by previous visitors including Rossini, Verdi, Princess Grace, Orson Welles, Clark Gable, Douglas Fairbanks and assorted European royalty. Verdi was particularly taken, searching for eternal youth each year for 25 years.
