Villa Bianca is a contemporary hideaway created out of an old farmhouse located amongst the soft green hills halfway between Florence and Pisa. This exclusive abode is an elegant gem that fuses innovative design, essential style and sleek urban details in the perfect example of a modern country house.
Nestled amidst the unmistakable Tuscan landscape, this luxury villa can accomodate 14 people in 7 bedrooms (plus 2 extra beds and cots can be added) and boasts fabulous views out over the countryside. Completely decorated in white and shades of grey, all rooms of this design villa have that special wow factor. Every piece of furniture, artwork, every vase and candle holder, every rug, throw or curtain is a hand-picked designer object. Many were creations of talented local designers and emerging artists. Every piece is unique and adds to the eclectic style that makes this property so amazing.
The entrance to the villa opens up onto a chic double living room that spreads out over split levels. A large modern kitchen features a fireplace and is connected to the spacious and elegant dining room, perfect for gatherings among family and friends. Also on the ground floor is a large storage/laundry room, 2 double bedrooms (1 with its own en-suite bathroom), 3 service bathrooms and a sauna room with massage bed (a masseuse is available on request).
The second floor features 4 spacious double bedrooms (2 of which can be joined to create a family room) and a luxurious suite that boasts its own private terrace overlooking the hillside. 3 of the bedrooms have private en-suite bathrooms, while the other 2 can share a bathroom and can be joined to accomodate families. Each bedroom is unique and different from the others and each features air-conditioning and modern bathrooms. The second floor also boasts a large playroom featuring a ping-pong table and children's toys.
During the warmer months, guests may linger until late by the villa's luxurious private swimming pool and jacuzzi, or in its lush extensive gardens and lounge areas. A delightful outdoor dining area is perfect for enjoying al fresco meals in good company. In an adjacent area, a small playground is also available for families with small children. The villa boasts secluded and quiet surroundings immersed in the Tuscan scenery of green hills, woodlands and majestic cypress trees.
The location and setting of Villa Bianca is idyllic for relaxing after returning from day trips out to Tuscany's historic cities like Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano (all of them within an hour/hour and a half). Its proximity to the main highway that runs from Florence to Pisa makes it a strategic starting point for excursions both towards the inland and the seaside (just 30mins away). The closest town is just a 10 minute drive away and features a variety of shops, supermarkets, facilities and restaurants. Just 5 minutes from the villa is one of the top gourmet restaurants in the area featuring innovative Tuscan cuisine. Personalized menus can be ordered from the restaurant and served inside the villa for a more intimate experience.
