Charm and History of Villa Gaudia
First, the original hunting lodge went thru a transformation into a private sports club for playing tennis and swimming. Then the current owners converted it about a decade ago into a private villa with the purpose of hosting weddings, parties and meetings. The guests would enjoy entertainment on the broad terrace surrounded by green nature, vineyards and olive groves. And the convenience of only a 15 minute drive from the Duomo in center of Florence. This is the perfect vacation home for executives on a family holiday while conducting business from abroad. There’s even a field to land a helicopter for fast and easy access.
