Casa Bellosguardo, Firenze - Florence

6 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 11 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

A spacious modern villa set in large gardens in a quiet suburb of Florence, Casa Bellosguardo is in walking distance of the city centre. It’s a great base for families or groups of friends who want to explore the city’s art treasures, and Greve, one of Chianti’s most attractive market towns, is also within easy reach. But don’t forget to build in days for relaxation, too – set in lovely gardens, the pool and its sundeck offers plenty of privacy, so why not pull up a sun lounger and take in the city views.

Inside, the two-storey house is easy on the eye, with a smart, contemporary-classic interior. Large sofas and armchairs in the two bright lounges are the place to gather for pre-dinner drinks, or to cosy up around the fire on chillier evenings. Antique furniture brings real character to the dining room, and on sunny days, the doors onto the terrace can be thrown open. Dinner can also be served on the patio, a few steps from the first floor of the house and set in a partly shaded area, offering spectacular views of Florence.

Our Thoughts
We love this villa for its proximity to Florence, yet it offers no less of a tranquil experience than many of our rural properties, with its gardens and pool. The interior décor is stylish yet simple, and the large bedrooms – some with their own sofas and armchairs – offer privacy and lots of space to rest weary limbs after a day pounding the pavements. To have a pool within walking distance of the city centre is a real bonus.

Notes
Six bedrooms. Three bathrooms, none en-suite. There is an attic floor that is not on the floorplan. It has a small study area with desk and guest cloakroom, with sink and WC. There are neighbouring properties, but the large garden and hedging offer plenty of privacy and the property is fully fenced.
Parking - garage for 1 car plus 3 uncovered places

Pool
The above-ground pool is located in a quiet corner of the garden and the water is accessed by metal steps. Care must be taken in and around the pool – it is only suitable for gentle swimming. Pool size: 10m x 5m,1.2m deep. Open May through September, weather permitting.

We were up on a hill overlooking Florence and with a huge garden we could not complain. It is about a 15 min walk down the hill to get groceries or to get to the Porto Romana.
It is quite central and if you can deal with the Italian drivers than the ride down the hill can be quite harrowing.
We could not use the pool (it is Winter) but the house is more than comfortable and has a lot of light coming through into the upper rooms.
In short, not our style but definitely a more than decent house to rent.
Local attractions We drove into Florence and ended up at a really awesome little restaurant called "Il Giusto". They allowed us in with our two dogs and were more than hospitable. Outside of that the shopping in the main shopping areas is great but I suggest taking a taxi to get into the city.
