Property Description
Location: situated in the hills about 8 km west of Florence.

This accommodation offers both: rural peace and quiet but also proximity to Florence. Girasole is situated in Bagno a Ripoli – an elegant region about 15 minutes’ drive from the center of Florence.

Antique villas stand among olive groves. The estate is accessed through electronic gates. Three houses stand on the sizeable lawn, the middle one being the owner’s villa, behind which there is a smaller house containing the Tosca and Mina apartments. Viola, a small, separate villa, is a short distance away. These three units can either be rented together or individually. Both guesthouses together can accommodate a total of 12 people: 10 people in the 5 double rooms and 2 on sofa beds.

The houses have just been redecorated. They have stylish interiors and a high standard of comfort. The furniture and fabrics have been chosen with great care. Everything is of good quality and well made. In the design of the apartments great care was taken to ensure a maximum of room and privacy.
The gardens are immense: neat lawns surround the various houses; the lawns gently merge into the olive groves. Specially furnished garden sitting areas have been provided for each apartment. At the far end of the garden there is a lovely pool with a magnificent view through olive trees – across the valley to the silhouette of Florence, in the distance.

The town is way down in the valley, the silvery Arno river meanders through it and the cathedral dome can be clearly seen, standing out against the rest of the town.

Peace and tranquility are guaranteed here. You will get a good night's sleep here! There is a restaurant in close proximity - just a walk down the hill. This location is an ideal starting point for going on excursions to Florence and the Chianti region. And after a long day filled with art you can return easily to your villa, where you can enjoy the rural setting in peace and quiet cooling off and having fun at the pool.
