Wonderful Villa of 17th century 15km to Florence, by car or by train (the station to Florence is at 3 minutes by car and 15 minutes walking). Nice pool 14x7 metres, antique furniture, 5 big bedrooms with air conditioned, 5 bathrooms, mansarda with billiard, big kitchen with barbecue, 6 fireplaces, beautiful patio, big garden. We have 35 hectars of vineyards, wood and olive trees. We have our own production of wine and olive oil, vinsanto and limoncello. You can walk or run inside the property without being disturbed, there are no public streets passing inside the property.
I am 55, I am from Florence, I spent first years of my life here, in the town that I love most. I have lived, for study or work, in NYC, London, Paris, Milan, San Peterburg. Now I am spending a lot of time in Central America for my actual job: Renewable Energy plants, particularly wind farms.
I speak fluently Italian, English, French and Spanish. I can speak also Russian and Portuguese.
I love travelling everywhere, for my work or just for fun, I have lived or visited more or less 80 countries all over the world, but nowhere I had the emotion of a sunset seen from Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
I love also reading, cinema, eating out (!) and cooking, sports, expecially biking, running and swimming.
I decide to rent my apartment in Florence and my family villa in the country mainly because I am travelling very often and I think that houses must be lived and not stay closed for long periods. These residences are very comfortable, ideal for people who want to make themselves at home. I have lots of nice places to suggest to my guests in Florence and the whole Tuscany.
domizio moretti purchased this villa in 1930
Everything about our stay at villa la Falterona was lovely. The house was roomy and adequately stocked. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had plenty of equipment and the caretaker was very helpful. The villa was fabulously secluded while being very convenient to the train into the center of Florence and the local amenities. The outdoor space and pool were as represented in the pictures and could not have been nicer. Finally, our host was gracious and accommodating in every way. It was a great vacation experience.
We had a wonderful stay at Villa la Falterona! The villa is very comfortable and has so much space that even with 2 families staying there we never felt crowded or in each other's way. It is very well equipped and everything in the house was easily accessible. Besides the comfort, the views are spectacular, especially from the rooftop or up in the vineyard. We had a few minor issues which were addressed promptly by the owner Domizio and the housekeeper Nella (she lives in the house in front of the property). The pool was a pleasure to have and it was fun to play water volleyball and float on the tubes. The villa is also very accessible to the train (about a mile walk) which is great if you don't plan on renting a car (we did not). There is a great bakery right past the train station on the right that has wonderful croissants and cream puffs. If you don't have a car, be aware that the driveway up to the villa is long and a bit steep. Domizio provides great information about the area, transportation, restaurants, etc and was kind enough to arrange a very reliable taxi for our excursions. The only drawback to the whole stay was that there was a firing range over the hill which could not be seen but could be heard on several days of our stay. Overall a wonderful stay in a beautiful, comfortable and scenic villa!
I wanted a special place to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. Villa La Falterona was not just special it was fabulous, beautiful, perfect, amazing – simply the best. The Villa itself is stunning and immaculately kept. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful – vineyards and olive trees for as far as the eye can see and close to the villa rose bushes, jasmine, lemon trees and wisteria perfume the air and provide the eye with a stunning array of color and beauty. The location is perfect. Florence can be reached in minutes by car or train and Lucca, Siena and Pisa are also close by. Although you may just want to stay put by the beautiful pool, walk the grounds and lounge on the loggia. Best of all are the owners who welcomed us with open arms – sharing their knowledge of Italy, the local area and best places to visit and dine. We look forward to returning again and again. Thank you so much for giving us the experience of a lifetime.
I would like to thank wholeheartedly, Domizio, the owner for the wonderful hospitality extended to me and my family during our 10 day stay. We really felt at home in a huge typical Toscanian house. The place is conveniently located to visit Florence, it is quiet at nite, and there is a pool ideal for sunbathing and swimming. Given that Florence was somewhat crowded during the day, we found it ideal to spend the day by the pool and to leave for Florence in the late afternoon, visit a few museums/churches before closing time and have dinner in one of the wonderful restaurants of this fabulous city. The place is not far from Sienna or Pisa which are worth the drive as well.
