Description

This beautiful historical Villa, whose construction is so old that some parts date to the 1300, is dominated by a stately tower and located just outside of Florence, where the Chianti area begins. The Villa's shape is sober and dignified both in the design of its layout and the finish of the facade. Villa La Querce is surrounded by vineyards and olive orchards, and wonderfully located at only 12 km from Florence and at 5 minutes away from the highways. In the surrounding land the owners produce quality wines and extra virgin olive oil that have won a great number of prizes throughout the years. La Querce is a 900 square meters villa with seven bedrooms, six baths and one service bath. On the first floor a magnificent hall with a huge fireplace, two elegant living rooms, one with fax machine and internet connection, dining hall with a large table suited for 14 guests, fully equipped kitchen, service bathroom, and two double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (one with shower, the other one with bath tub). On the second floor a large hall with grand piano, a comfortable living room with satellite tv, the breathtaking master bedroom with en-suite bathroom (with bath tub), one large and elegant twin bedroom with en-suite shower bathroom, one double bedroom and a twin canopy bedroom which share a shower bathroom. On the tower level there is a cozy living room with tv, a twin bedroom with amazing view of the valley and a bathroom with bath tub. All the bedrooms have plenty of storage space. On the ground floor there are the wine cellars (available to guests for wine tasting tours), the gym with sauna, the laundry room (with washing machine, drying machine and iron board) and the staff quarter (not available for guests). The villa has also two safety boxes. In the outside areas there is a beautiful and peaceful private park, with abundant olive orchards, laurel hedges and a fantastic lawn perfect for children to play. There are two living areas in the park. One in the cotto patio in front of the villa, with two arcades where it is possible to eat or relax in the shade of a huge fig tree. Plenty of deckchairs. The other living area is in front of the hall at the first floor. An elevated square garden with a big oak tree where it is possible to enjoy breakfast in the freshness of the morning or have a relaxing apetizer at sunset, or try an informal dinner with the tasty dishes cooked by Grace, the villa’s cook. The pool, nested among the olive trees, is surrounded by laurel hedges for the guests privacy. In-site staff is available every day all day up to 7 pm, except from 1 to 3 pm.
