Location: Borgo I Vicelli

Borgo i Vicelli is a lovingly restored Tuscan hamlet only 14km away from Central Florence. It is composed of 6 villas in 2 buildings, plus the owner's villa.
Behind the owner's villa is the fenced pool, surrounded by a pretty lawn with sun-beds. Over the hedge is a lovely view of the Florentine hills dotted with olive groves and vineyards. Next to the pool is a kitchen/dining room and games room.
The property is surrounded by olive groves and from several areas there are wonferful views of the Tuscan countryside. The three hamlet buildings snuggle around a large semi paved courtyard. Below one of the buildings is a covered dining area for communal use, this is furnished with a wooden table with iron chairs and a wooden bench. To one side is stone sink and to the back is a pizza oven. On advance request pizza and theme evenings can be organised.

In the larger building, partly below ground level is a small wellness centre which is composed of a relax area, sauna and a large Jacuzzi. There is a shower here.
Excellent access to Florence, the 'outlet' stores and the Chianti. It's easily accessible from Exit Firenze Sud of the A1 Motorway given its proximity, the later can sometimes make the property not completely silent. The owner uses his villa occasionally, they are not permenant residents.

Pool Info

The pool is located in the gardens behind the owner's villa. It's not visible from the rental villas. It's completely fenced and surrounded by a hedge, however the windows of the owner's villa overlooks the pool area. They are not present at the property much, although when they're there they may also use the pool.
The large pool has lanes marked in it. It's surrounded by comfortable sun beds in a beautiful lawn dotted with olive trees. It's the perfect place to enjoy the views of the hills around Florence. The pool is 18x9 metres and open from May to October.
To one side of the pool, below the owner's villa is a loggia providing shade. It is furnished with a couple of tables and chairs. Passing through some wooden doors are some communal rooms which include a sitting area and a games room. In the games room is a billiard table and a table football. These rooms are accessible only during the opening hours of the swimming pool, which are: from 10.00 to 19.30.
