Luxury villa rental in Tuscany, with private swimming pool, located in the heart of the green hills of Tuscan landscape, only thirty minutes from Florence, between the ancient towns of Montespertoli and Castelfiorentino not far from medieval Certaldo village home of the poet Boccaccio.
The elegant Villa to rent is steeped in history, built on the ancient Via Francigena connecting France to Rome, its origins date back to the early years of the 13th century when a powerful Longobard clan from the Elsa Valley - the Conti Alberti - chose this hill as the site for their castle, later converted into the elegant villa you can see today.
Traces of the original 13th-century fort are still discernible in the square brick tower and the walls alongside this luxury villa.
