Villa Paterno, Pelago - Florence and Chianti

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 8 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Looking for a property that is just that little bit different? Then consider Villa Paterno, close to Vallombrosa near Florence, an outstanding choice that is sure to wow your fellow travellers. This villa is, in fact, a former monastery, and it has a wonderful setting, too; perched on a hilltop, its whitewashed façade peeks out of a lush canopy of mature trees at the surrounding landscape. Dating from 1700, this atmospheric and stylishly restored property, is a beauty - this is your home for a week or two, yet it looks like the kind of historic landmark you might earmark in a guidebook to go and take a look around.

Villa Paterno the name of the self-contained first-floor apartment within this grand mansion, which, with four bedrooms, is well suited to a party of friends or family. A graceful carpeted staircase leads up to the entrance to these spacious quarters, which are well furnished with many attractive antique pieces. There's a bright and airy sitting room, dining room and kitchen and a furnished spacious balcony offering a gorgeous panorama over the garden and private pool to the surrounding countryside. This is a superb place for al fresco dining, where the chef in your party can rustle up a treat on the stone barbecue. The pool is another delightful spot to savour: lined by a guard of slender cypress trees, it provides further sublime views of a quintessential Tuscan landscape of vineyards and olive groves.

Our Thoughts
We love the atmosphere of this historic property, where there's a distinct echo of those distant times when Villa Paterno was a monastery. But don't think austere: the living rooms and bedrooms are generously sized, beautifully renovated and lavishly furnished. The views from the balcony of the valleys, mountains, and hilltop settlements are simply stunning. Plus you even get your very own billiard table and, of course, a private pool to play in or swim laps in the enormous pool. Top tip: buy fresh bread daily from the small grocery shop just outside the estate.

Notes
Computer with Wi-Fi is available for guests. The on-site chapel is licenced for weddings and baptisms. The owner lives in the property but has a separate private entrance, and may occasionally use the pool together with her family, but is respectful of guests' privacy. There is a pet dog living at the property but it is not allowed into the pool area.
