OVERVIEW

Enjoy all the cultural treasures of Florence along with the spectacular Tuscan countryside at this gorgeously restored “limonaia,” tucked away within Cyprus trees and local vegetation on the south Florentine hills. Designed as the ultimate luxury retreat, the villa perfectly blends relaxed modern elegance and exceptional outdoor living spaces with a large pool.
Villa Santa Margherita is the result of a unique collaboration between a renowned American architect and a Mexican born celebrated jewelry designer. Inspired by the vitality of nature, the stylish decor features white and beige tones and natural touches like inlaid stones, decorative crystals and earthenware vases, adding to its atmosphere of peace and wellness.
The villa has a comfortable and alluring indoor living room, however, much of your time will likely be spent in its divine outdoor spaces. These include an outdoor kitchen and BBQ, as well as a breakfast and lunch terrace with sweeping views of the bucolic landscape. And then there is the main outdoor entertaining space with a cinema, sitting and dining areas. The pool is located a few steps down from the larger terrace, and is surrounded by lounges by Sutherland as well as hedges and trees, granting it perfect privacy. The villa has exquisitely manicured gardens with tall Cypress trees, fragrant jasmine and colorful wisteria.
Two of the villa’s air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms are located in the lower floor of the main building, both with direct access to private terraces. One of these rooms has an outdoor Maldivian shower. The third and smallest bedroom is located in the annex.
Your Florentine holiday can be complemented by the villa’s full concierge service, ready to meet any of your needs from arranging chefs and babysitting to tours and other activities to make the most of the region’s pleasures.
What you should know: the road leading to the villa is comparatively narrow and we advise you to hire a small vehicle.

Things to do
• Florence: The city lies on the Arno River and is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture. A centre of medieval European trade and finance, the city is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance; in fact, it has been called
the Athens of the Middle Ages.[2] It was long under the de facto rule of the Medici family.
From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. The historic centre of Florence continues to
attract millions of tourists each year and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.
• The Chianti area: Famous for its wines - the Chianti Classico - this area of Tuscany has more than just
world-class oenological pleasures to offer. The curious visitor will come accross many delightful villages,
each of them with a history of its own. Let us simply mention lesser known gems such as the romanesque church of
Sant'Appiano, the Basilica of Impruneta, the fortified castle of Monteriggioni and the roofless romanesque abbey of San Galgano which are all close. And don’t miss the Saturday market in the small town of Greve.
• Siena: The Sienese have no doubt, their town is the most beautiful in all of Tuscany, if not all of Italy. Siena has remained a Gothic city. Renaissance, one of the major influences in Florence, hardly affected the urban development of Siena. The city unfolds around the main shell-shaped square called "Il Campo."
Twice a year the famous horse race known as the "Palio" takes place here.
The narrow streets are lined with old shops and small cafes, while churches and
museums are real treasures of the fourteenth century.
• San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy.
It is mainly famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which may be seen from several kilometers
outside the town. The town also is known for the white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, grown in the area.
• The seashore: the sandy beaches along the coast of Versilia at turn of the century Viareggio and fashionable Forte dei Marmi with their trendy bars, designer shopping and some of the best seafood restaurants in Italy
