same time simple, essential style. The terraced gardens, surrounded by a wood of cypresses, oaks and pine trees offer a panorama over Florence spanning from the Chianti region to the Apuane mountains.
This villa was the summer residence of the monks of the S.Marco monastery, has also been the residence of a noble
Florentine family: the Mancini, and their coat of arms still is engraved on the huge fireplace in the main hall of the first floor. In more recent time has been also the Italian residence of Mr. Morgan, the famous American banker. Recently after a period in which the villa was not used anymore as residence but only as administrative center of its agricultural estate, the villa has been fully restored. This restoration has eliminated the 19th century modifications and at the same time has given value and evidence to the original ceilings, structure, fixtures, floors and to all architectural details typical of the 16th century. Presently it is fully furnished with ancient precious furniture, it has the warmth and feeling of a well lived in house. The owners live in a section of the villa and sometimes rent it all to selected people for special parties or events.
The main building (villa) with a gross surface area of 2'000 sq.m, a portion dates from before the 1500 and the other
portion was constructed after. It is composed of three floors, as well as the ground floor.
Both this floor and the first floor have been completely renovated and represent the "day area" or living quarters of the villa, while the second and third floors (bedroom areas) are not yet renovated.
Villa Firenze is situated in a panoramic hillside with a spectacular view of Florence.
