Villa Marnia is a delightful villa with adjacent dependance. The surrounding woods provide a lovely backdrop to the very tranquil and private location. Access to the property is via a partially paved but well-maintained road (700 meters long), which leads to the automatic entrance gate at the end of the cypress-lined driveway. There is plenty of outdoor parking space.
The main building (240 m²) and the separate independent guesthouse (65 m²) are located on 3,000 square meters of enclosed land. The spacious garden is characterized by centuries-old trees and an ancient well behind the main building. The outdoor dining table for 6/8 people is ideal for tasty alfresco meals. Also at guests’ disposal is a private swimming pool (5x10m), which is slightly raised in comparison to the villa and is accessible by a small flight of stairs. The pool lounge is equipped with sunbeds, parasols, and a small gazebo perfect for fun and relaxation during the spring and summer months.

Villa Marnia is located in the municipality of Reggello, an area that boasts a rich artistic and
architectural heritage (including several churches, parishes, museums of sacred art and the Sammezzano Castle), and is just 25 km from Florence.
Reggello is located only 10 km from the villa and here you will find all necessary services: grocery stores, bakery, post office, bank, pharmacy, bars, restaurants, supermarket.
Moreover, in the centre of Reggello you can admire: Piazza Potente (with its late 16th century open galleries), the Town Hall (adorned with the coats of arms of the Podestas who succeeded each other over the years in ruling the village), and the 16th century church of San Jacopo (with its 17th century frescoes and paintings and an 18th century organ).
The "Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Festival" takes place in Reggello every year during the winter months of November and December. Several agricultural estates produce and sell directly the precious extra-virgin olive oil of Reggello, a Tuscan IGP, which is a qualification obtained thanks to a pressing carried out using both traditional and modern methods in the various olive presses of the territory.
The municipality of Reggello also offers some natural treasures, such as the forest of St. Anthony (a protected nature area of local interest, covering 900 hectares) and the forest of Vallombrosa (a biogenetic nature reserve rich in conifer woods, hosting an extraordinary abbey of Benedictine monks). The forest of Vallombrosa has one of the most famous experimental arboretum of Europe, containing about 3200 exemplars of 1200 different species coming from all over the world. This area has several marked hiking paths and nature itineraries that can be explored on mountain bike, on foot, or on horseback.
