On a hill by the borders of Florence, no car needed as it is comfortably connected to the city center by a frequent public bus service.

ที่พัก

The villa is very spacious with plenty of room for a group of ten people: you can party together and enjoy your own time of privacy. The terrace on the roof, the one off the master bedroom and the side of the garden with the swimming pool have wonderful views of the city in the distance. You can see the Duomo towards South and enjoy the pleasant sights of the countryside hills in the other directions. Not to talk about sunsets…

If you have ever been to Florence you know this is a town where “suburbs” takes on a very special meaning. Just outside the very hectic circonvallazioni, the main arteries that lead into and out of the city center, are a host of picturesque residential areas where the aristocratic and wealthy built their spacious villas in the shade of huge umbrella pines.
Cypress trees line the narrow roads that wind upwards past olive groves and tiny vineyards, so that almost at once you forget about the noisy city you just left behind. But it’s there, visible from every curve and terrace, dominated by Brunelleschi’s inexplicable cupola and the forboding tower of Palazzo Vecchio.
What a perfect combination, to have the sights of the Renaissance city but not the smells, sounds and mayhem of 21st century Firenze!

This 17th century villa occupies a hillside on the old road to Bologna, just fifteen minutes north of the city center. It has its own 4500 square foot garden, with a swimming pool that occupies one of the natural terraces where lemon trees used to be cultivated in a great earthenware vases. Facing this side of the property is the glass-enclosed room where those trees were protected in winter; now it holds a table where six people can dine with a view of the Duomo. At the other end of the garden is a cottage with a washing machine, dryer, iron and board, and a small WC.

Also occupying the ground floor of the villa are a comfortable sitting room with couches, chairs and satellite TV, a dining room whose table can open up to accommodate sixteen people, a living room with a fireplace, armchairs and telephone. These rooms have stunning casement ceilings. Next to the dining room is a kitchen, furnished with a full fridge and freezer, oven, range top, microwave, Nespresso Machine, American coffeemaker, and dishwasher. It has a table for two, and opens onto a covered pergola with dining for the entire group.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom has a double bed, a roomy wardrobe and a door onto a private terrace overlooking the city. Next door is a bathroom with shower and tub. Across the hall from the bathroom, a door opens onto a tiny back street, perfect for unloading bags and parking if you have more than one car.

The next two bedrooms share a balcony: one has two twin beds, the second has a full sized bed and a single bed. Then there is a suite with its own entrance, featuring a double bedroom, small kitchen and bathroom with shower.

Another flight of stairs leads up to the last bedroom, which has a double bed and a bathroom with a stall shower.
But the villa has more to offer! On the roof, reached by a comfortable flight of stairs, is a large terrace with deck chairs and one of the best views to be found for miles.

All the windows in the house have screens, the property is gated and surrounded by a wall, and in the garden is a built-in brick barbeque.

Just down the street are several small shops and only 100 yards from the door is the stop for the city bus that goes straight down to the center of town.

If you are lucky enough to have found this villa, book it now! We just had a wonderful week at Villa Acacia and are missing it rather painfully. Lorenzo is an extremely attentive host and was kind enough to connect us to his friend, Andrea, who offers personal concierge services to guests. The house is spotlessly clean and has all the amenities you need (wifi, hair dryers, laundry, plenty of hot water). The beds are very comfortable. And the views! We had to make sure to be home every night at sunset to take photos. Imagine waking up to the sight of the Duomo out your bedroom window. We happened to be there during peak wysteria season (April 19-26), which was heavenly, as the property is draped in wysteria vines. It was a little too chilly for the pool, but the garden was so beautiful that we didn't mind at all. And it is so easy to get to Florence by bus...a wonderful thing, since parking in the city can be challenging (if you are renting a car, choose a smaller one---some of the roads around La Lastra are extremely narrow). We are already dreaming about coming back.

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Acacia. Lorenzo was there to greet us and show us around the villa when we arrived. He was a great host. He arranged some transportation for us as well as a private chef to cook for us one evening. The meal was incredible! We highly recommend it! The villa is quite old and yet very charming. There were 7 of us and there was plenty of room for all of us to sleep, eat and relax. The views of the city are amazing. We walked down the hill our first morning to pick up some groceries at the small, local store. The bus stop is near the store but it is an uphill climb from the stop to the villa. (Enjoyable for us, but not for our 80 year old parents!) It was a nice location if you want to be out of the city and yet close enough to make day trips to Florence and surrounding areas. We kept quite a busy pace taking day trips and wished we had given ourselves more time to relax and enjoy the villa.

We enjoyed our visit to Villa Acacia immensely! There were 9 in our party and there was plenty of space for everyone, it could easily have slept more. The villa is comfortable, very clean, and the gardens are beautiful. The views of Florence from every bedroom and the terraces were spectacular. We had breakfast on the patio outside the kitchen, lunch by the pool, and cocktails on the terrace from the second floor. The rooftop terrace had striking views as well. Cooking was fun, and the dining room accommodated all of us comfortably. There is a small square within a 5 minute walk with a tobacco/coffee shop, post office, market and a gas station. The shop keepers were very friendly. There is a bus stop a short walk from the villa, and the bus rides into Florence were only about 15 mins. There is a small town close by called Fiesole where we went twice for dinner and it was very quaint. Last but not least, there is Lorenzo. He is a delightful host that makes you feel like a true guest in his home. He has a book with basic information available from transportation, things to do, restaurants, vineyards, etc. We called him for travel advice and he was congenial and gave us good information. We look forward to a future visit to Villa Acacia!

10 out of 10 for this beautiful, spacious and relaxing home. The villa is perfectly located with beautiful views of the city and with a close, efficient and frequent bus service to the city centre. Lorenzo was a very warm and kind host who was fielding questions months before our arrival and dealt incredibly with our demanding requirements - he provided every practical necessity in the clean and airy spaces for ten of us ranging in age from 15 months to 75 years. He recommended excellent concierge tips for transportation and a brilliant art historian guide who was perfect for a family group. He arranged a scrumptious welcoming dinner by the wonderful Luisella for our late evening arrival on the first night and a never-ending banquet to celebrate a family birthday on our last night. Just fabulous, thank you.

The Villa as described by my daughter is "rustic, shabby and chic" and why so- "rustic" - 300 + year old large villa with high ceilings and full height opening shuttered doors etc, and all the olde world charm expected in a great location overlooking the city of Florence. "shabby" - well it is obviously old, the upgrades are 1970's and the place though tidy is tired. "chic"- well it is a cool and classy villa in a great location and it is a memory of better by gone days It sleeps alot of people (upto 12) so to get your value for money given the above the more people who enjoy it with you the better the financial outcome. I would revisit but next time I would as I say maximise (not the just the 4 of us) the occupancy of it to get value for money. The longer you stay the more you get endeared to its "olde worlde charm". The bus service outside the door is frequent,fast and efficient. Mario the clients rep is attentive and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our stay so don't let me put you off!!

Stayed at the villa for a week for my 40th birthday. The villa is well located and near to the bus stop, which takes you into central florence. Had a lovely time and lorenzo was a great help.
