In the whole villa the original floors covered with those red fired bricks also known as “cotto fiorentino” have been preserved. This kind of handicraft is very typical and reflects the architecture style of most Tuscan villas.
All bedrooms are really large so its is possible to add one or two single beds upon request for up to 6 extra beds. Each bedroom has its own charm, decorated with painted walls and ceilings, wrought iron or wooden beds, antiques and some family objects. In all bedrooms you can admire the original wooden beamed ceilings, and most of them are also hand painted in Florentine style, reflecting the noble origins of the family who built the villa at least two centuries ago.
Palazzo Nobile is a typical Tuscan manor house of a large estate that extends for 1300 square meters, only 4 km away from Pratovecchio, a lovely Tuscan village at the base of Casentino mountains which offers all basic facilities and public transportation to the most important cities like Florence and Arezzo.
The division of the villa is very useful for large groups composed of more family units travelling together, as each one has its own privacy.
The villa is set in a residential village and offers complete privacy as its own private garden is totally fenced in. The swimming pool, set on the villa's background, is immersed in the large garden, on a higher level, surrounded by a wooden solarium which is furnished with many sun loungers and umbrellas. Below there is a green meadow with table and chairs and some shady spots provided by the century old trees.
The large garden area is fully equipped for outdoor meals and has a fixed barbecue structure, many garden tables and chairs for everyone and a children playground. The garden is rich of local plants, herbs, flowers and trees. The views from the pool and garden goes over the lovely Tuscan hamlet to the green mountains behind it.
