Private House – Private Pool 10 to 12 people – 5 bedrooms – 3 + WC bathrooms
Villa Acacia is a beautifully restored five bedroom four bathroom country house with a great deal of warmth and charm. Secluded from its sole neighbour its setting affords great views across the Valdarno valley that stretches from Florence to Rome with the Appenini mountains as a dramatic backdrop to the countryside location.
The flat landscape immediately surrounding the house are olive groves and vineyards, allowing plenty of space to wander and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the property’s extensive grounds. The hills above are graced by the old pilgrims trail lined with seven antique hamlets, topped by Vallombrosa locally known for a visit from the Queen of England. There is a 12 x 6 metre pool a few metres away from the villa.
Inside, the traditional beamed ceilings and terracotta floors are highlighted by lovely furnishings and walls painted in rich pastels. Entering through the front door the fully fitted kitchen to the left is equipped with oven, gas hobs, fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher.
