Villa Le Piazzole has kept its Seicento reconstruction style, and therefore the classical aspect of a country residence of the Florentine hills, located between two ancient roads; in a way, a rest area for the wayfarers on their way to Florence from the Chianti hills.
The stone benches on the side of the main door of the Villa point to this use of this corner; the baroque facade of the family chapel opens on the same side. Over the door, the coats of arm of the Acciaioli and Del Riccio families, the most renowned owners of the past. The Acciaioli, the ancient Florentine family who built the nearby Certosa monastery, owned the Villa until 1474; the Del Riccio brought the Villa to its current aspect, and the recent restoration work kept the seventeenth century style.
Villa Le Piazzole is quoted in the description of the outskirts of Florence made by several authors, while both amateur and professional painters, fascinated by its pleasantly clean line, transfer its image on their canvases.
After long years of neglect, the current owners, enticed by the beauty of the building and its favorable position, decided to undergo the long construction work which transformed Villa Le Piazzole into their dwelling and home to tourists. The restoration was carried out fully respecting the historical and architectural values; in addition, the ancient farming of vineyards and olive trees, has been returned to the estate.
Our customers will have the opportunity to experience the same emotion that inspired many a poet and artist that in the past lived in these wonderful hills.
