Villa Gaudia is an exceptional modern villa on a 3 hectare estate located just 10 km (6 miles) from the heart of Florence. The charming five bedroom countryside villa offers old world charm and service in a modern setting in the Chianti hills just east of Florence. This historical hunting lodge was initially transformed into a private sports club for playing tennis and swimming. Then about a decade ago it was converted into a private villa with the purpose of hosting weddings, parties and meetings, where the guests would be entertained on the broad terrace surrounded by green nature, vineyards and olive groves, conveniently, only a 15 minute drive from the Duomo in Florence. With the huge swimming pool and private tennis court, plus all the modern conveniences including a/c, this is the perfect vacation home for executives to have a family holiday while they conduct business from abroad. Villa Gaudia can be booked with with full staff, or basic staff service.
Spend this vacation improving you skills in tennis, swim laps in the big pool, and discover the secrets of Tuscan cooking by using the produce from the villa’s vegetable garden. Enjoy breakfast or lunch on the pool deck or in the shade of chestnut trees. In the evening you can watch the sunset with drinks before dinner is served on the covered terrace illuminated by candles and Morocco lanterns.
Villa Gaudia has perfect access with everything spread out over the ground floor – from the entrance to the living room with fireplace, opening to the dining area and the outside living areas beyond. The entertainment space has a 54” flat screen satellite TV (sky channels service) and home theater sound system with DVD and CD players.
All 5 bedrooms are well furnished and equipped with air conditioning, a private terrace with views down the valley, and a TV with CD/DVD player. Each of the 5 en-suite bathrooms includes a shower and hairdryer.

From this pantry you continue into the stainless-steel kitchen equipped with a 6-burner stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher.
