A grand regal hunting mansion in the Tuscan countryside
Villa Medici, a grand mansion built in the 16th century, was once one of the 12 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 vineyards overlooking the valley that connects Florence to Lucca, the villa has retained its original architectural beauty and serenity.
Guests have the chance to reside in a unique and truly special atmosphere. The entire estate has been carefully restored and improved upon by the present owner, a prince whose family bought the property more than 200 years ago. Outdoors, guests can enjoy a swimming pool, surrounded by sun loungers and lush green lawns. There are plenty of outdoor lounge and dining areas, ideal for al fresco entertaining and socialising whilst enjoying the spectacular countryside views.
Indoors, all the rooms are decorated with antique furniture and paintings, the high ceilings feature Venetian glass chandeliers and the floors are laid with opulent Persian carpets. Guests can enjoy a game of pool in the billiards room, relax with a good book in the library, and enjoy delicious feasts in the elegant dining room.
Each of the spacious seven bedrooms offer a private sanctuary to retire to at the end of the day. There are four master bedrooms with king-size beds and two twin rooms – which can be converted to doubles on request – all with en-suite facilities and beautiful views. The estate guarantees an extreme level of security and tranquillity, making a stay at Villa Medici the perfect luxury retreat.
