Villa Chiesa Nuova is a classic Renaissance-style villa located on an estate just outside of Florence. From the villa’s tower, you can see Giotto’s bell tower and Brunelleschi’s dome. Villa Chiesa is an ideal place to relax in the lap of luxury. In fact, Prince Charles and Lady Diana were guests on the estate where the villa is located on their first trip to Italy in 1986.
The villa is surrounded by vineyards, ancient trees and olive groves. On the grounds there is a heated swimming pool, tennis court, a small theater and many lovely paths for strolling. Interiors are elegant and stylish, yet comfortable and welcoming. But what sets this magnificent country house apart is the living room in the tower with its wraparound windows offering a 360° breathtaking view of Florence, Fiesole and the Tuscan countryside – a perfect place inviting a quiet hour with a book or a glass of wine at sunset.
The location is ideal for exploring Tuscany. Florence is only five miles away. The highway to Siena (45 minutes) is just four miles away, and the highway to Pisa (55 minutes) is just ten minutes by car. Florence airport is 11 miles away. Golf courses and riding stables are located nearby.
