About this property
Villa Angelico is a beautiful historic Italian farmhouse converted into a private villa, situated on top of a hill in Tuscany, with a splendid view overlooking the valley below at only 35 km from Florence.
The farmhouse is located in the area of Mugello, near the village of Vicchio, famous for being the birthplace of Giotto and Beato Angelico, two celebrated Italian Renaissance painters. Villa Angelico forms part of a large agricultural estate that produces olive oil and wine, whose Tuscan tradition is famous all over the world. The villa is surrounded by a well-groomed garden which borders on one side onto a country lane occasionally used by cars during the day. In the garden there is a panoramic swimming pool for the sole use of Villa Angelico and its guests. The garden has a covered parking area near the gated entrance and a pergola with a table for eating "al fresco", next to the original stables which have been converted into an open space with built in barbeque. From the pool area one can enjoy a very special rural landscape, where it is difficult to catch sight of any sign of modern civilisation. The love of country tradition is evident in the recent renovation, with wooden beams on the ceilings and the antique fireplace in the kitchen which is big enough to sit inside as the farmers did once upon a time to warm up. The foundations of this villa were built at the end of the fourteenth century and it was inhabited by bailiffs from seventeenth century. This beautiful historic Italian farmhouse, has not lost any of its old-fashioned charm, conserving the atmosphere of farmhouses from the past while offering all the modern day comforts. The antique furniture along with the tastefully chosen comfortable furniture and the eye for detail make this house a residence of excellent value for money. Just outside of Vicchio is the beginning of the "Strada del Vino Chianti Rufina DOCG and Pomino DOC" (Wine Road).
