From Villa Afrodite you will be able to quickly reach downtown Florence and everything it has to offer: history, art, fine restaurants, night clubs, elegant shops as well as theatres and cinemas. Back home, you can relax in the peace of the countryside: you can enjoy the swimming pool and its sun deck, the barbecue area or a relaxing walk.
The owner will be happy, if you ask, to cheer your stay organizing tours and wine tasting in the Chianti region, reserving museums tickets and providing a transfer service from and to the airport or the train station on demand.
Villa Afrodite is a traditional Florentine countryside home: its structure dates back to the XVI century. The restoration made in 2007 has maintained its original aspect and mixed the ancient character together with modern amenities. The charming Florentine atmosphere is revealed through the use of typical Tuscan materials as stone, terracotta tiles, wood beams and wrought iron. The interior decoration and the choice of furniture (including some antique pieces) are in harmony with the character of the region. The ancient rural spaces, such as the grindstone for olives and the wine cellar, have retained their historical charm.
