We are situated 5 km (3 miles) from Florence historical centre, staying with us you will be very close to the centre that you can easily reach also without having a car, at any time by train (15 minutes ride) or bus. Our area is quite and very safe, close to the town and we are surrounded by 12 acres of private parkland with vineyards, lawns, beautiful flowers garden and a nice pool in the middle of the olives groves. We will be happy to offer you our fresh veggies and make you taste our red wine and extra virgin olive oil. My parents and I run Villa Il Paradisino: we restored our family residence by five generation and opened it to all guests that would like to see, live and participate in our life, and visit Florence and the beautiful country villages of Tuscany. Life here is unhurried, filled with the scents, flavours and furnishings of a past that is still alive. The complex is furnished with original antique pieces owned by our family for generations . Our apartments, elegant and spacious, contain modern conveniences: individual heating and air conditioning units, a safe, satellite TV , dishwasher and high speed Internet connection. The pastel wall colors, the four-poster bed and the ancient terracotta floor tiles, contribute to creating a special atmosphere and warmth in the rooms. Bathrooms are furnished with authentic Carrara marble and other natural materials in splendid colors. The villa is surrounded by rows of grapes and olive trees, interspersed with centuries-old vegetation: ancient species of fruit, trees, vegetable garden, flower gardens and meadows. Our small working farm produces olive oil, red wine, organic vegetable, fruit, jams and other home made products available for our guests that are also welcome to enjoy the pool. We like nature very much and so gardening and having animals: here you can visit a garden full of plants, trees and flowers and be in the company with our cat and 2 very sweet dogs. We also keep free range ducks, rabbits, chickens and hens that kindly give us fresh eggs every morning to make delicious dessert and scramble eggs for breakfast. We love cooking very much are very happy to give cooking lessons to our guests, children also, cooking together our products in our kitchen, teaching the family recipes and hoping to diffuse a little bit of our culture and traditions. Villa Il Paradisino is located in Sesto Fiorentino, a small town surrounded by beautiful hills and the Apennine Mountains, just 6 km NW (4 miles) fromFlorence historical centre and less than 1 hour driving from many world-wide renowned art cities like Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia, Arezzo and mediaeval villages like San Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo as well as the beautiful Val d 'Orcia and Mugello countryside and the Chianti wine region. We are about 2 hours and 30 minutes drive from Rome and Venice and about 3 hours from Milan the fashion capital of the world. Our geographic position is absolutely exceptional to visit Florence (12 minutes ride by train) and the Tuscan region: you can establish your home base in our Villa and drive everyday visiting different places: we are 3 km (1.8 miles) from the exit of A1, the most important Highway that connect you with many cities and town. If you prefer not to drive you can easily move by train or bus: the trainstation is 15 minutes walking distance and the bus stop to Florence is in front of the Villa. You can also find lots of shops and facilities like banks,pharmacies,restaurants, post office, theatre, pastry shops, bakeries,café ', Delly,Groceries, tennis courts and more that are reachable within 10 minutes or less by foot. Sesto Fiorentino, Etruscan and then Roman village, is famous for itsartistic, hand made and painting porcelain: nearby there are Richard Ginory porcelain factory and its museum: Then you can visit the Etruscan tombs 'La Montagnola' and 'La Mula', and the Medici Villas 'Castello' and 'LaPetraia', where you can visit the inside and the historicTuscan gardens outside. Guests can also enjoy local horse riding, biking or just walking around the Villa, shopping in the little centre or exploring the Surrounding countryside and forest on scenic paths seeing beautiful Historic Houses, olive trees fields, gardens, enjoying the savoury scent of Tuscany aromatic herbs. Each month you can find many events in the towns and villages around likeartisan markets, wine tasting, antiques markets and food festivals, street theatre, concerts and more; please ask for details and we will be very happyto help you to spend a wonderful time. looking forward to welcome you!
