Located 20 minutes from Florence, a small cluster of private houses enjoys a unique view of the Tuscan hills. Among them is Pure Villa La Giara, a splendid villa with her private garden and swimming pool, and which restoration and furnishings recall the charm of the past.
The geographical location of the village, at an altitude of 400 meters, gives a very pleasant climate. Warm during the winter but cool and breezy even in the hottest summers.
Despite her original core of the twelfth century, Villa La Giara has undergone expansions and improvements over the centuries. The villa has been the summer residence of the Bishop of Florence. In fact, it was the bishop who decided to build the small chapel of the villa and to decorate most of the rooms.
Everything in this house offers peace and a slower pace of living. One has the feeling that here, time stopped forever, due to the conjecture of the furniture designed to offer perfection and to give comfort, coziness and satisfaction based upon the aesthetics. One of the bedrooms (the Book’s bedroom) has a library with books in their original language with English literature, American, German and Russian, left by the current owner's grandfather, a prominent spokesman of the Italian culture of the first '900s.
The beautiful garden of 8.000 square meters and the swimming pool are part of the private area for exclusive use of villa guests. The only part in common with another house in the village is the parking area, located behind the villa. Villa La Giara, although it is part of a village and has another house adjacent to its walls, can guarantee absolute privacy.
The swimming pool area offers eight sun beds and is furnished in teak with coffee tables perfect for having an aperitif. Walking down from this area, a pathway with fruit and olive trees leads to a nicely fenced vegetable garden that can be used to have fun picking up fruit and vegetables. In the evening, the lighting system of the garden creates a striking effect, with lights positioned under the olive trees, highlighting different forms in a magical way. The surroundings of the villa offer quiet streets on which to venture on foot or by bicycle.
The rooms on the ground floor; kitchen, living room with fireplace, and a dining room for up to 8/10 people, have several doors that open onto the outdoor terraced area on the panoramic side of the villa. This area is covered with white gravel, is furnished for eating out (dining table for 10) and is shaded by large trees to protect against the sun.
On the ground floor, you also find guest bathroom, laundry room and wine cellar.
The second floor has an entrance hall, corridor, TV room, guest bathroom, and a Master Bedroom with en-suite bathroom with double sink, bathtub and shower. This room also has two changing rooms and direct access to the TV room and another sitting area with fireplace.
A second bedroom, called the Principessa bedroom, has a French bed, safe and en-suite bathroom with a small bathtub.
The third bedroom on this floor, called the Blue Bedroom, has a double bed with direct access to a living room with TV.
The third floor has one double bedroom called the Uccelli Suite, with access to a studio with a single bed (suitable for a child).
Another bedroom on this floor, called the Books' bedroom, has a double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower. This floor has one bathroom with double sink and bathtub positioned centrally, and one bathroom with shower.
Included in the rental of the villa is a caretaker who is available six hours per day, six days a week for taking care of the garden, the daily cleaning and the preparation of breakfast six days a week.
Animals present on the estate (chickens, rabbits etc).
Due to many steps at the property, the villa is not suitable for children, nor for elderly people.
La Giara consists of two different villas under one roof. The other villa, or apartment, is home to the caretaker. However, this apartment has a separate entrance on a secondary side of the villa, so maximum privacy to the guests is fully respected, including garden and swimming pool.
Use of the appliances in the villa and kitchen must be supervised by the staff.
Next to la Giara there are two dogs outside in a fenced in area.
At the swimming pool it is possible to hear cars passing on a distance.
