Villa Raffaello is a an elegant and beautifully restored villa in the outskirts of Florence, perfect for families or a group of friends seeking to experience the authentic Tuscan countryside in refined comfort.  The two-story luxurious holiday home is surrounded by large private panoramic landscaped gardens with olive groves, lemon trees, Mediterranean flowers and a stylish salt water swimming pool which usually opens from May to September.  The lounge area around the pool is furnished with elegant daybeds and shady retreats.  The villa is arranged in two levels and can accommodate up to six people.  For bigger groups, it can be rented together with the separate luxury studio suite upon request.  Raffaello Studio Suite is a completely independent unit that accommodates two additional guests and can be rented only with the main villa at an additional cost.

The interior has been finely renovated by an Italian skilled interior designer to preserve its original characteristics.  The ground floor consists of a double living room with an antique fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to a stunning terrace with breathtaking views of the rolling vine-carpeted hills of Chianti, furnished for al fresco dining and ideal for aperitifs during the sunset time.  In the same floor, there is a fully equipped kitchen with direct access to a large paved terrace, perfect for breakfast and barbecue, a large bright formal dining room and a smaller dining room with direct access to the garden.  On the first floor there are three large double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.  The bedrooms are equipped with large comfortable beds and mattresses and enjoy beautiful uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside.  Original Italian sand stone was used for the floors and stairways, the walls are finished with Venetian plaster in pastel tones and all the fittings are hand-made from the large linen curtains to the built-in library in the master bedroom.  All bedrooms were individually decorated to the highest standards and beautifully finished with Portuguese marble countertops and floors.

The independent luxury suite is a lovely bright studio with its own separate entrance including a sitting area, a fireplace, a double bed, built-in wardrobes, a bathroom with shower, a small but fully equipped kitchen and a private enclosed patio.  This can be rented only upon request and only in addition to the main villa for a group of seven to eight people.

The property is in a great position for exploring the Chianti wineries, historic towns, art cities and beautiful beaches.  Nearby there are also various sports and recreational facilities including golf, horseback riding and famous fashion designer outlets.  The villa can organize also cooking classes for food enthusiasts as well as other activities such as wine tasting and cultural guided tours.
