Recently restored 15th century, 7 bedroom villa, 25 minutes from Florence, set in a beautiful park.

Tuscany-Florence Area Villa 14

Astra dates back to the 15th century and it was recently restored and transformed into an exquisite independent villa for up to 8 people. This beautiful three-story property is nestled in an exclusive estate boasting an impeccable manicured park (5000 sqf) which includes other villas as well. It can be rented alone or together with other houses to accommodate large parties or special reunions. While the villa is irresistibly cozy, it is also unmistakably Tuscan and this quality alone coupled with its sought-after location near Florence – only 25 minutes by car or 40 minutes by train – makes Villa Astra a picture-postcard escape.

By entering Villa Astra you will find the perfect harmony between comfort, elegance and ease, the ideal combination for your perfect Tuscan getaway.

The estate and grounds are meticulously cared for and a very special place. The staff was exceptionally caring and eager to make our time there enjoyable. I am sure you will hear from Julie too, just wanted to personally extend our heartfelt thanks. Now back to reality…
