Villa Leonardo is a lovely Tuscan farmhouse located within short distance from the city centre of Florence, immersed in the green rolling hills which surround the city. The villa has a wide private garden with century old trees, colourful flowers and local plants. It shares a large swimming pool area with Villa Cipri, a charming cottage for 4 people located on the same property but with independent entry and private garden.


Both villas can be rented together to become a whole Tuscan vacation home for large groups (up to 15 persons all together). If rented out separately, each group has a total privacy, with their own independent gardens and outdoor areas for meals, sunbathing and relax.


Villa Leonardo is reached by a cypress lined path, to enter its own private 20.000 square meters garden and private fields. The property is completely surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and many fruit trees too, yet very close to Florence, within only 7 km and within walking distance from the small village of Lastra a Signa.


The villa is a prestigious 18th century farmhouse, recently restored which now develops on the first floor. The villa is divided in two apartments, rented out together only for one group at a time. It is ideal for two family units travelling together looking for each one's privacy. The advantage is to have a large living space, and two equipped kitchens. The larger apartment, on the right side, offers 90 square meters of living area.

There is an independent entrace to the first floor of the villa. The owners live on the ground floor.


The entrance leads to the large eat-in kitchen (30 square meters) with table and seats for 8 people. The main kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary utensils and modern appliances, like refrigerator with freezer, double stainless steel sink, electric oven, stove, dishwasher, microwave, bread toaster, American coffee machine. All this is matched with the antique open fireplace traditionally used to cook and in perfect conditions to grill a delicious "Bistecca Fiorentina" (typical “chianina” T-bone grilled on the wood fire).


The passage room is a cozy sitting room with SAT-TV, which leads to the two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a lovely terrace with table and chairs where to relax in the afternoon watching the sunset while tasting a glass of Chianti wine.


The green bedroom is furnished with twin wrought iron beds and country-style pieces of furniture. Its private bathroom is the largest one, fully equipped with shower, sink, WC, and bidet. A clothes washer is available in this bathroom.


The second bedroom, the rose one, is furnished with a comfortable double bed, with cotton flowery fabrics and a Tuscan style mosquito net around it. This bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom, tiled in the same tones of rose as the bedroom, with a ceramic mosaic.


The second apartment on the left side, is composed of a lovely living room with kitchen corner. If not necessary, the kitchen can just be hidden inside a closet. This is a cooking corner equipped with two electric hobs, a small sink and a mini fridge. The corridor leads to the sleeping area with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.


The first one is the yellow bedroom, furnished with a typical wrought iron double canopy bed and has its own en-suite bathroom, fully equipped with shower, a charming sink with hand painted tiles, WC and bidet.


The second bedroom, the “terracotta” coloured one is furnished with a double bed and one single sofa bed. This bedroom has its own private bathroom located right beside it, fully equipped with a lovely marble sink, WC, bidet and shower.


The owner has preserved all traditional characteristics of this villa, furnished and decorated in typical Tuscan country style. The terracotta floors have been preserved in the day area rooms while in the bedrooms he used hardwood floors. The terracotta and wooden beams are the original ones and match perfectly with the delicate colours of the walls.


The owner live in an independent apartment inside the property and will be available for any help or extra services, without invading your privacy. The garden is naturally outlined by cypress trees, bushes and flowery plants. There is private parking for up to 3 cars, and a private terrace fully equipped with table and chairs for outdoor eating. In addition there is a barbecue and a second equipped area for meals al fresco. The swimming pool, shared with VILLA CIPRI, offers a large surrounding equipped area for sunbathing, relaxing and also eating by the pool.

Guest comments Villa Leonardo (2)

lee mescolotto, pottstown, United States

The villa was wonderful and the views from the property were amazing! Paola (and her husband Fabrizio) were always available and provided invaluable information about train services, restaurants, and sites to see in Florence as well as in Rome and Venice. The house was well maintained and the apartments were great - the full kitchen was a great gathering place. The pool was clean and lovely with a full view of the Tuscan countryside. We would highly recommend the Villa Leonardo to anyone planning a trip to Tuscany.

Fantastic.. had a great time with family. Paola, the landlady was absolutely fantastic...A++. She was extremely helpful and welcoming and friendly and we will miss her. The pool was our favorite spot, well kept, clean, gorgeous view, etc. Everything really was very good - the beds were nice, the grounds were clean, kitchen was well stocked, everything worked properly. Computer with online access was a MAJOR bonus!! We would have been lost without it. Juckily there is A/C in the bedrooms... we would have really been uncomfortable without that at night. THANK you for the bedroom A/C! The Tuscan Villas website says the town is walking distance.. it is... but the Villa is up a long steep hill, so very few people would actually walk to/from town. You need a car. We will miss Paola and her dogs and her husband Fabrizio -- great place, very warm memories of our wonderful time there.
