This is a large, beautiful farmhouse near to Florence, which looks like it dates back to the second half of the 18th century but was actually built in the 20th century! It is set in a quiet location and has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a private swimming pool.
Villa Ann has recently been tastefully constructed so that it appears to have been built centuries again. The owner has sourced incredibly beautiful and original architectural features such as terracotta-tiled floors and beamed ceilings. It is part of a large 7-hectare farming estate comprising two independent villas, which are a short distance away from each other and it is surrounded by olive groves and woods. In addition to the infinity pool which is equipped with a safety alarm (16 x 8 metres and 1.4 metres in depth, open from mid April to the beginning of October each year) and the amphitheatre, which is under the pool area and contains a fitness room, dressing room and bathrooms with showers and WC, there is a spacious solarium and a shaded barbecue area. The outside areas enjoy stunning views and guests can enjoy some fantastic sunsets from the covered seating area. Four mountain bikes are available for guests' use and there is parking for four cars in the grounds. On the ground floor there is a large 80-metre square living room with a beautiful fireplace dating back to the 16th century, a dining area with access to a covered terrace where there is a table that can seat 14, an open sitting room with a double sofa bed, a kitchen and laundry area. In addition there is a double bedroom with access to the terrace and a further table and chairs, overlooking the pool. There is also a bathroom with a bath and a Jacuzzi shower. On the second floor there is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi shower/Turkish bath, a twin-bedded room, a further double bedroom and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi shower. The pool is open from 16 April to 15 October each year.

Please note that there is a mandatory tourist tax of 1 euro per person per day also payable locally and a final cleaning fee of 250 euros to be paid locally on arrival. A 800 euro security deposit is payable locally on arrival in cash but refunded on departure upon the property being left in satisfactory condition. The owners prepare a delicious welcome dinner for all guests as well as providing ample supplies for the first breakfast of your stay.

A note from Jo
One of our favourite villas in Tuscany, Villa Ann is a special place to stay, made even more special thanks to its wonderful owner. Alessandro invests in the property year on year ensuring it continues to exceed all our guests expectations. It's a rare find, representing the very best elements of a traditional villa in Tuscany but with all the creature comforts of the 21st century. Our favourite spot to sit and relax is at the pool or on the comfortable outdoor sofas on the covered terrace.
