Acerca de nuestra casa

For who loves to relax in the country side among olive trees and vineyards, without having to renounce of cultural visits to the city center. At my Villa you can experience the best of two worlds.
Situated only 3 km from the centre of Florence, on the city-centre’s doorstep, Villa Covacchia, a beautiful 18th Century Villa housing three apartments, is set on four acres of olive trees, and has a private swimming pool. The Villa is situated in Castello, an area of great historical importance, on one of Florence's amazing hills. From the property you can enjoy an incredible panoramic view of all of Florence.
The newly renovated suite apartments are a pleasing blend of traditional Tuscan architecture and modern convenience and design. Windows with vistas of Florence center, the Villa Petraia tower, or the garden brighten these airy and quiet quarters. Exposed timber ceilings and terracotta tile floors contribute to the characteristic charm of this Tuscan home. Each apartment includes a well-appointed kitchen—marble or tile counters, refrigerator, and cooktop. Bathrooms offer showers or tub. Apartments are also equipped with tv/dvd players. In addition, each apartment has a terrace with table for outdoor dining, and a barbeque grill is available in the garden. The garden offers sunset views of the Arno valley and surrounding mountains. Private parking available within the gates.

  1. My name is Anna. I am a Swedish woman in my best years. I love travelling and I think homeexchanges is a great idea to get to know other people and other cultures. Thanks to travelling I have learnt to speak five langauges and that things always turn out.
    My husband is Francesco. He is from Florence since many generations. He loves motorbikes which has been his passion for all his life. Since I came into the picture I share the number one position on the top-list together with the bikes.
    He is very handy, and he believes that success lays within yourself.

Castello is an area of great historical importance.
Several Renaissance villas are located within walking distance from the apartments. The Villa Reale and Villa Petraia, both belonging to the Medici family, are famous for their architecture and as striking examples of Italian formal gardens.
Villa Petraia was also home to king Vittorio Emanuele II, who summered in Castello when Florence became the capital of Italy in 1865. Further down the road from Villa Petraia, you’ll see Villa Bel Riposo. Carlo Lorenzi Collodi, the author of Pinocchio lived here while he was writing this popular story. All the characters in Pinocchio were drawn from real persons living in and around Castello.
Castello is an area of great natural beauty.
The countryside surrounding the Villa Covacchia is splendid for long or short walks. Narrow roads wind along ancient stone walls up the mountainside. Marvel at the rustic farm houses and splendid villas that sit amongst acres of silver-leafed olive trees.
