Surrounded by hills, situated on a small promontory in the Croci di Calenzano area lies Villa Le Croci, a stylish country house whose origins date back to 16th century: it belonged to a noble Florentine family. It has been renovated in 2011 and offers all the comforts a family or a group of friends could expect: a great panorama, a well kept garden and a swimming pool, a cool portico perfect for a delicious dinner with Tuscan products and of course the most common amenities like air conditioning, flat TVs and internet connection.
This quite place with rich oak trees, olive trees and vineyards is ideal for relaxing walks: it will not be difficult to meet fallow-deers, pheasants and hares.
Particular attention has been dedicated to the garden and to the panoramic platform: equipped with every comfort, this area is ideal for outdoor living; the modern furniture includes tables, chairs, sofas and a barbeque. Under the portico lies a rectangular stylish table for 8 people where it is possible to have breakfast or lunch during the hot Tuscan summer. All around the swimming pool (14 x 7m) there are sunbeds and puff sofas.
Villa Le Croci (220 sqm) has been renewed but many original decorations and materials like natural stone, beamed ceilings and terracotta roof tiles have been kept. The furniture of the bedrooms belong to the classical Florentine art.
Ground floor: you will find a wide dining/living room with a wooden table for 8 people, a fully equipped kitchen (with microwave oven, American coffee machine and dishwasher). There is a thermo-fireplace, a triple bedroom (with 3 single beds) and a complete bathroom with a washing machine and double shower. The living room and the bedroom have both flat TVs and air conditioned.
First floor: a wrought-iron scale leads you to the first floor. There are 3 bedrooms (2 doubles + 1 triple with 3 single beds) and 3 complete bathrooms, 1 with bath tub and 2 with shower. Each bedroom has its own flat TV and air conditioned.
Finally, separated from the main body of the villa you will find a living/relax area with sofa and TV, which can be accessed from the garden.
Villa Le Croci is a country house which is absolutely perfect for a healthy and relaxing stay in a wonderful location immersed in green hills but really close to Florence. If you would like to get away from the daily routine you have definitely found the right place to spend your time...
