Countryside

Villa Il Forte was at the origin (century 13/14) a fortified position, elements of which have come to light, such as the colonnade surrounding the courtyard and the walls of the tower structure, elements that have made possible a particularly refined restoration and the creation of environments of charm. Even the terracotta floor is specially manufactured with a mixture of black kaolin to get the gray-brown colour to harmonize with the walls made of local stone.

Villa Il Forte is situated near to San Donato in Collina, only 14 km from Florence, well connected to many art sites, and is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and forest trees: an ideal place for a restful and cultural holiday. The villa is entirely equipped with ecological, sustainable energy sources, as solar cells for electricity and geothermic system for heating and refreshment of air.

The separate "Fitness House" with hydromassage, sauna, equipment for gym and bar, is located half way between "La Leopoldina" and "Villa Il Forte". Its use will be exclusive for the first clients who will reserve it for an extra cost. The orientation of the common areas of the two villas (pools, dining rooms, barbecue ...) ensures complete autonomy and intimacy to each of the two residential areas.

ACCOMODATION

Villa Il Forte can easily accommodate 16 people (4 in the adjacent dependence) in luxurious comfort. Available facilities: refreshment of air, heating, fireplace, satellite TV, internet connection, biliard room, washing machine, dryer, baby bed (upon request), barbecue, private swimming pool, parking place. The kitchen is professionally fully equipped. Here you will find a dishwasher, oven, stove, double sink, large fridge, American Coffee maker and more.

Please note: Refreshment of air produced by geothermal energy. That means that the air will be refreshed circa 10-12 degrees lower than the outside temperature. E.g., outside is 30 °C / in the house about 19-20 °C

The villa is divided in 3 floors: on the ground floor there is a professional kitchen with direct access to a covered pergola with BBQ, pizza oven and table and chairs. On the same floor there is a large dining room, a sitting room with flat screen and DVD, a Lobby (85 sqm) with piano (reception, sitting room, conference room or eating room), a bathroom with shower and a service bathroom.

The ground floor hosts also a king size bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub.

On the first floor there are a triple bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub, a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower, a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and bathtub, a single bedroom with bathroom next door with shower. 

On the mezzanine floor you will find another sitting room with flat screen and DVD.

On the second floor there is a king size bedroom with big bathroom divided in two by a sliding door: first part with the lavabo and the second part with WC and shower.

Adjacent to the villa there is a dependence (80 mq) with sitting room with kitchen on the ground floor. On the first floor there are a double bedroom with bathroom next door with shower and a king size bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub. THE DEPENDANCE IS ONLY RENTED TOGETHER WITH THE VILLA.

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL

The area around the villa is arranged as a country garden, including centuries old olive trees; a gazebo placed between the two villas suitable for rest, reading etc.

REVIEWS

We have just returned from a week long stay at Villa Il Forte. There were 13 people in our group and we had a great time! We wish we didn't have to come back. The villa is incredibly spacious and very well laid out. The villa has 6 bedrooms in the main house and 2 in the dependence. The rooms are nicely spread out among the house. There are also a number of communal spaces in the house for the group to hang out, relax, and eat. The pool area is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect place to hang out, take in the amazing view and enjoy. The staff at intuscany is equally fabulous. They are incredibly helpful and are very responsive to questions and inquiries. They also provided amazing recommendations and happily helped us make reservations for various excursions. They helped ensure this was a trip of a lifetime!

We searched through approximately 40 houses before deciding on Villa Il Forte and we are so glad we did. We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday at Villa Il Forte with four families including 10 children (all under 9 years old) for one week in early July. Everyone was very happy with the accommodations and we all had plenty of room. Every bedroom is lovely and includes a private bathroom (even better than the photos). The pool is gorgeous and suited our big group perfectly. The dining room can seat more than 20 people and the beautiful outdoor terrace can seat about 16. The kitchen is modern and convenient to the terrace for outdoor dining. Additional space includes a billiards room, quiet room with round table that could be used for those who need to work remotely or big card games, sitting room with TV, den with TV, and breakfast room off the kitchen that seats 10+. One of the families in our group with four young children (including a baby) were very comfortable in the annex on the property which is also beautiful and spacious (the managers were very accommodating in bringing in a cot and crib to the annex). The villa's proximity to Firenze is perfect, allowing short visits to the city as well as easy exploration of Toscana's gorgeous countryside. We all traveled into Firenze multiple times, we did short trips to areas like San Gimignano and Fiesole, and we did a full day of wine touring in Montalcino and Montepulciano. The villa's location is absolutely perfect for a group that wants to see and do a lot. It is also ideal for relaxing days by the pool, enjoying a long lunch on the terrace and afternoon siesta. We dream of returning to Villa Il Forte one day soon!

Karen from USA • 02 - 09 July 2016

Everything about our stay at the villa was amazing. We were a big group with kids but there was plenty room, food and wine. Located about 30minutes from Florence, an hour from San Gimignano and less than two hours from Pisa. The setting for the villa on a hill top in San Donato, especially the view from the pool, was perfect. The options the villa offers just for eating ranged from outside, relaxed near the kitchen to formal sit down. The staff from the kitchen to the cleaning crew were terrific; friendly and informative.
