Villa Tantafera

The Villa
1 of 35The Villa
Villa -
7 Bedrooms , 7 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Florence, Tuscany
Dating back to the 15th century, this historical villa has been completely restored and refurbished. Its hilltop position ensures superlative views of Florence and the Tuscan countryside, with the city center just a 10 minutes drive away by car or 20 minutes by bus.

The Villa is nestled on top of 5 acres of private land, scattered with olive trees. All around the house, a romantic, terraced garden with ponds and fountains, lemon plants and persimmon trees, strawberry grape vine and delicate flowers.

Villa Tantafera also boasts a large indoor whirlpool (about 80 x 120 inches), heated and with a salt (no chlorine) filter, and a new dipping pool outside, in one of the garden terraces. Not a standard swimming pool but rather an enjoyable large outdoor jacuzzi-like pool with a great view of Florence.

Throughout the whole villa, with its tw...

Getting around
Re transportation, it is advisable to rent a car/cars or minivan (depending on the number of people), as the bus stop is not too far, but still quite a walk uphill (or downhill). 
Taxis are fairly easy to get and the ride of 10-15 minutes to get downtown would be around 15-20 euro (4 passengers).  Still, having your own car would give you independence and flexibility.  Going downtown by car is not that difficult and I will tell you the different options you have to park in public parkings, depending on where you want to go.
In case you opt out of car rentals and wish for a personal driver, we do have a reliable and professional contact.
