Vacation villa in Empoli countryside, in the heart of Tuscany, about 25 kilometers from Florence historic center. Sleeps 8, hydromassage, wide garden, swimming pool.
The beautiful villa stands in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, just a few kilometers from Empoli.
The archaeological finds discovered in the area demonstrate that the plain of Empoli has been inhabited since the Palaeolithic. However, the toponym Empoli made its appearance only in the 8th century, when a castle called Empolum (or Empolis) stood in the part of the town now called Empoli Vecchio. After having been conquered by Florence in 1182, in the 13th century Empoli became an important fortified town that was besieged several times over the centuries but was conquered only in 1530.
The town is rich in churches and ancient palaces, the most important being the Collegiate Church of Sant'Andrea, the Palazzo Pretorio and the Palazzo Ghibellino.
The beautiful villa with large and bright rooms is the ideal solution for those who want to visit all the major Tuscan cities of art and relax in the peaceful countryside at the same time.
