History of Villa Napoleone near Florence

History dates this villa back to the 11th century and was first built as a Guard Tower, that’s why we have the stunning panoramic position. Anna, the current owner, bought the property in 1988 and turned it into the comfortable and elegant family home it is today. Anna is a skilled interior designer and she has systematically renovated the interior while fully preserving the character of the building. She conserved many original antique pieces that now harmonize with modern design and contemporary taste. The famous Italian landscape gardener Pietro Porcinai created the villa’s beautiful garden and surrounded it with olive groves and fruit trees. The result is a sophisticated and welcoming home, true to its heritage.

Ground Floor of the Napoleone Residence

On the ground floor are the fully equipped kitchen, an elegant sun lit double living room with fireplace, two dining rooms, and the utility room. The larger dining room features a fireplace and glass doors leading to a truly stunning terrace with unbelievable views. This terrace is the ideal place for sipping cocktails while enjoying the sunset. Guests can enjoy the breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside from every room of the house, while the large stone paved patio area at the front provides the perfect setting for breakfast.

Design and Interior of Luxury Villa near Florence

Every room is individually decorated to extremely high standard. The original pieces of Biedermaier furniture are some the owner’s treasures, as well as rare empire paintings and magnificent mirrors. The fine handmade linen curtains and large comfy white couches brighten up the sophisticated atmosphere. A magnificent masonry Gothic arch almost dating back to the year 1100 defines the different living areas. Venetian plaster in pastel hues cover the walls and just ooze Italian craftsmanship. Sand stone floors and two lovely antique fireplaces finally complete this truly unique decorating scheme. The bedrooms have individual style and very comfortable beds. The bathrooms come in marble and a Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower are in the master bathroom. You will be pampered with Frette linen of the highest quality.
