Overview

This beautiful, three-story high, property is nestled in an exclusive estate boasting an impeccable manicured park (5000 square feet) which includes other villas as well. It can be rented alone or together with other houses to accommodate large parties for special reunions. While the villa is irresistibly cozy, it is also unmistakably Tuscan and this quality alone coupled with its sought-after location near Florence - only 25 minutes by car or 40 minutes by train - makes Villa Astra a picture-postcard escape.

By entering Villa Astra you will find the perfect harmony between comfort, elegance and ease, the ideal combination for your perfect Tuscan getaway.

Accommodations

Ground Floor

The entrance hall welcomes you and leads onto the elegant large communal spaces: the inviting sitting room with flat screen satellite TV, large fireplace and plush sofas, and a separate formal dining room with a blown glass chandelier. These eclectic spaces fizz with life and personality and feature designer fabrics, beautiful rugs, high quality furniture and antiques, all perfectly blended. A fully equipped Tuscan kitchen completes this floor.

Outside Features

There is a private swimming pool 150 meters from the villa, a sundeck with an expansive gazebo to provide shade during the hot summer hours and refrigerator to keep beverages chilled while sunbathing. There is also a loggia for dining al fresco, walking trails within the estate, a private manicured garden, and private parking.

Reviews

We returned yesterday after an amazing trip, all due to you, Antoinette and Carlos!
Gary and I will forever treasure these memories -- thank you for the care and attention to the details! In case you don't know, the villa we rented is owned by the Ferragamo family. The estate and grounds are meticulously cared for and a very special place. The staff was exceptionally caring and eager to make our time there enjoyable.
I am sure you will hear from Julie too, just wanted to personally extend our heartfelt thanks.
Now back to reality... - Daniel L.
