Villa Giotto, also known as HII GIO, is a 6-bedroom villa in Tuscany, located only 2 kilometers from Vicchio, 35 kilometers from Florence, 40 kilometers from the Florence airport, 80 kilometers from Siena and 90 kilometers from Pisa. The motorway is also within easy reach.
The farmhouse is located near the village of Vicchio, which is famous for being the birthplace of Giotto, a celebrated Italian Renaissance painter.
Surrounded by a lovely garden that borders a country lane occasionally used by cars during the day, this hillside farmhouse is part of a large estate that produces olive oil and wine. The garden houses a covered parking area near the gated entrance. A nearby pergola has a dining table adjacent to the original stables, which have been converted into an open space with a built-in barbecue. Across the garden and its many roses is the swimming pool, which enjoys a view of the rural landscape.
The foundations were built at the end of the 14th century. The interior features wooden beams on the ceilings and antique furnishings. An antique fireplace can be found in the kitchen, which has a shower room. The indoor dining room has a table, which accommodates up to 12 guests. The large living room also features a cozy fireplace.
This villa sleeps up to 12 people. The bedrooms are located on the first floor, which has a living area, a bathroom with a bathtub, 2 shower rooms and a dressing area, all shared by the 5 bedrooms. Two bedrooms are furnished with double beds, while 3 bedrooms each have twin beds. The sixth bedroom has a French bed. This villa also comes with Internet access, a washer, a ping-pong table, satellite TV and screens.
