Description

La Contea is an ideal choice for a large family gathering or group of friends to enjoy the beautiful outdoor swimming pool.

This luxurious, 16th century villa is steeped in history and was once owned by the Medici family of Florence and later by other Tuscan noble families. Today it has been restored to offer a mix of charm and modern comfort. There are period furniture and antiques in the living area and the large rooms have high coffered ceilings, some with frescoes. The house is spread over two levels and is nestled in the hills of Muggello in the Florentine countryside, in a cool, quiet and remote area. In the basement, there is also a wine cellar. From the property you can enjoy a picturesque view of the surrounding hills and valleys. The villa is part of a 730-hectare farm which is mostly forest, with estates and warehouses, all located away from the villa, with the caretaker living close by. The villa is surrounded by 5,000m² of private grounds, comprising of flat and hilly areas and densely wooded areas within a partly fenced plot. The park also has a small chapel, and just a few steps from the villa, is a illuminated pool (depth 1.4m-2.1m) with an outdoor shower, deck chairs, sun loungers and parasols. Next to the pool there is an annex with dressing room, shower room, fitness area and sauna. Between the pool and the villa is a open paved terrace with tables, chairs and barbecue.
