Countryside

Enjoy noble splendor in this gracious antique villa which is both close to Florence and immersed in tranquility.

Villa Il Turco is an elegant, aristocratic, sixteenth-century country estate which once belonged to a noble family named Rosselli Del Turco. 

Complete with vaulted ceilings downstairs and chestnut coffered ones upstairs, stables, a pigeon loft and a graceful loggia on the second floor, this villa is like some thing out of a period movie. Not only will it delight you but it also can provide the perfect staging point for exploring all the most important sights in Tuscany as well as those more off the beaten track.

Thanks to its valuable 18th and 19th century antique furnishings and its proximity to Florence, only 25 km, this villa is perfect for art lovers who wish to relax in a historical environment. Original frescoes and wooden coffered ceilings help to give you the feeling that you have stepped back into the annals of time. 

Although it enjoys absolute seclusion, the villa is part of an active farm which produces Chianti wines, olive oil, grappa and honey (all of which can be purchased). Wine tasting and visits to the cellars can be arranged. 

With in walking distance is a charming typical restaurant where local specialties are served. 

ACCOMODATION

Ground floor: large eat-in kitchen with fireplace (oven, washing machine, dishwasher). Formal dining room with vaulted ceilings opening onto the garden, living room; also with vaulted ceilings, satellite TV and telephone, bathroom with shower. Beautiful original terracotta floors.

In a little storage house in the garden, there is the boiler and the laundry. 

Please note that due to it’s size and disposition, this villa is not suitable for winter lets. 

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL

The garden is vast and very private. It is shaded by centuries-old trees and graced with beautiful views of the family vineyard. Behind the house, hidden away in absolute privacy, are a spacious terrace and a broad lawn, where a barbecue and brick oven make evening meals a delight. 

Nearby the villa is the private swimming pool (5 X 10 meters). Recently built for the exclusive use of guests at the villa, it is shaded by oak and olive trees and affords wonderful views across the valley. 

There is also a very old chapel on the grounds which can still be used for religious functions.

REVIEWS

Dear, We just got back from Lake Como and are happy to be home, finally. But we had an absolutely perfect stay at Villa Il Turco and thank you for everything you and your family did to make it that way. I wish we could have stayed another week. We hope to see you again sometime, at the guest rooms across the street from the Villa. My best to you.

Wendy from USA • 14 – 21 July 2007

What an enchanting villa. The pictures do not do this house any justice. It is breathtakingly beautiful and incredibly clean. The grounds and the surrounding countryside are amazing. There is even a working vineyard and a cellar underneath the house! Waking up every morning was a much anticipated event. It is also so we situated. We were 15-20 minutes outside of Florence by car and the surrounding towns within 2 hours are enough to keep anyone enthralled. Our 2 week vacation should have been 1 month. The family that owns the villa are the nicest people on earth. They were gracious, helpful, fun, etc. They also run one of the best restaurants in the entire area. If you are into food and wine, there is also an amazing restaurant in Cerbaia. It's called La Tenda Rossa (The Red Tent). Be prepared to pay a lot, but it will be the most amazing dining experience you'll ever have.

Phungo from USA • 06 – 20 June 2009

Just a few lines to let you know that we all had the most wonderful and relaxing summer holiday staying at the Villa Il Turco. The Villa and Tuscany was far better than can be imagined by reading and looking at internet pictures or books. It allowed us to step back in time and feel and breathe the real history of a magnificent building and a delightful and charming area of Italy. Perhaps words can not describe the true feeling we all felt but ‘Falling in Love’ is perhaps the closest. Also the hospitality shown by the owner and all the staff was overpowering, we were not treated as tourists but as though we had been close friends for many years and the food and wine, eaten in a beautiful surrounding, will be sadly missed. Our visits to Florence were very educational and all the Museums and Galleries we visited were wonderful and traveling on the local bus made us feel part of the community. We will, having fallen in love with your country and people, without doubt visit Italy again next year to see more of the area and hopefully travel to different regions and perhaps stay once again in IL TURCO (with a better fluency in Italian). Please pass on to all at the Villa (and Mario who gave us a tour of the Wine Cellars), especially you father, our warmest thanks to all who made our stay so happy. Thanking you also for all your help and information given to us. Kindest Regards.

Victor, Phillip, Linda and Lucinda from USA • 03 - 10 July 2010

Ciao Manola and Paolo! Sorry for the delay in writing this email. We just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Tuscany and enjoyed our stay at the Villa Il Turco. I would also like to thank you for your excellent service and for being so attentive and prompt with all our requests and information we needed. We appreciated that very much. In addition to that, we wanted to give a shout out to Viola at the villa, who was amazing, very helpful and kind to us. She dealt with all our requests in a willing and speedy manner. Thanks again for your hospitality. If our travels bring us back to Tuscany we will definitely contact you again. Mille Grazie,

Dean and Stavros from USA • 08 - 13 June 2015
