This classic Renaissance style villa is located within a large estate, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and old-growth hardwoods. Eight kilometers of easy driving separate the Villa San Casciano country home and farm from Florence. At 320 meters above mean sea level the house and the park have a commanding 360° breath taking view on Florence's surrounding countryside up to Giotto's bell tower & Brunelleschi's dome. The tower provides a splendid platform for a panoramic view. Surrounded by a park, the grounds feature a comforting swimming pool, a small theatre in a natural setting and paths upon which to set out on walks. Villa San Casciano is an ideal place to relax in the arms of luxury. Prince Charles and Lady Diana were guests in March of 1986, on their first trip together in Italy, in the Villa San Casciano estate.
