Overview

Every stone in the Tuscan landscape tells about the many cultures that inhabited it throughout the centuries. About 30 Km from Florence, Villa del Giglio is a luxury holiday property, built on the ancient Via Francigena connecting France to Rome, a magnificent example, evoking a multitude of ancient influences. The castle was built back in 1210, from a most important noble family as the center of Val d’Elsa’s court. They owned and lived in this fabulous castle, later transforming it into an elegant country mansion, until the 17th century. Traces of the original 13th-century fortified castle are still visible in the square brick tower and the defensive walls along with the villa. Villa del Giglio, this Historic luxury villa for rent near Florence has been completely restored while still keeping the spirit and atmosphere of a noble house. It is capable of  12 people accommodation in luxurious comfort.
