My name is Stefano and my wife's name is Mela. We have been married for over 30 years and are from Florence. We have 2 daughters, 1 grandson and 2 wonderful cats: Leone and Ronnie. I am very much into music and I am part of a rock 'n roll band performing in Florence. My wife, Mela, has a creative mindset and owns children apparel stores in Florence and develops her own line of clothes for children twice a year. Our daughters live abroad, Costanza studies graphic design in Madrid, while Irene is married and lives and works in Copenhagen. During the winter time we live in Florence, but during the summer months we move to our beautiful villa, Poggio al Pino, only 13km away from Florence center to enjoy the Italian summer. The property, built in the beginning of 20th century, has a prime location with a full view on Florence historic center and in the back on the Tuscan Hills and is composed of several houses. We own the main villa and garden and this is the place where you and your family would stay. Emanuela's brother owns the adjacent property, the pool is shared. The house has a very special meaning to us as a family as we have spent endless summers here and have watched our children and nephews grow. We welcome families and children. We love the simple italian lifestyle when after a day spent in the hills mountain biking, visiting the historic center of Florence, or relaxing by the pool, we can enjoy an italian dinner by the Villa's porch overlooking Florence, while tasting genuine italian food and wine. We hope that we will be able to share this with you and your family too. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Stefano purchased this Villa in 1955
What makes this Villa unique
It is simply an amazing place with a wonderful view over Florence and on the opposite side the gently sloped of the Chianti region. Here you can really relax in a beautiful landscape, while at the same time being very close to downtown Florence and its renaissance treasures. The city center can be conveniently reached in less than 20 minutes by the new Tramway line, only 4km away from the Villa. Therefore, you are able to combine a wonderful country location and lifestyle with a city life. We use the 4 hectares around the Villa to make our own family wine and oil, as well as cultivating our vegetable garden.

A hidden gem!
We were a group of nine who had the pleasure of staying at the Villa. It was everything we were looking for, from the quite to the view overlooking Florence. The kitchen is nicely equipped and with fresh tomatoes from the garden we were set.
We found an incredible amount of trails to explore and we were close enough to Florence to go shop, visit and explore then back to the peace and quite of the villa.
Stefano could not have been more accommodating and nice.
Would love to come back for a longet stay!
Hi Sergio thank you for your kind words, Villa Poggio al Pino is truly a special place. I hope you will be back some time, I would love to meet you again. All the best Stefano
Beautiful older villa overlooking Florence
3 families stayed at the wonderful, peaceful villa and grounds for 4 days the end of June. Beautiful pool we all enjoyed including our granddaughters. Stefano very accommodating making sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Older kitchen but recently installed convection range/oven. Restaurants and grocery store 15 minute drive. He told us to take the train to Florence and that worked out great. No ac at the villa but beautiful breeze thru the windows in the evening. Open windows did bring in mosquitos so be prepared. We were visited by 2 wild boars at 2am one night and owls calling out too. Stefano warned us they were around. Very exciting to watch them, from the 2nd floor! You do have to share some of the property with other owner, but we never saw them so not a problem. Would absolutely stay at the villa again. A great way to finish our 2 week tour thru Italy.
Hi Cindi, thank you so much for your kind review, you were wonderful guests, and I hope to have you back in the beautiful Poggio al Pino ! See you soon and thank you again.
Huge home with plenty of room for our group of 8 people. Large land with pool and stunning views of Florence. What a Tuscan experience is all about!
Thank you for your kind words, I enjoyed having you all, really Poggio al Pino has a unique location ! Come back any time, all the best. Stefano
Beautiful villa, spectacular views, kind host
Our stay in Poggio al Pino was incredibly enjoyable. The villa is very pretty and of a classic style, with stunning views across Florence, a terrace perfect for evening meals and a good bus service to the City. Our host, Stefano was incredibly kind and hospitable - we felt truly welcome. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to visit Tuscany, be it to experience the culture of Florence or to enjoy good food, wine, a view and a pool up in the hills - this property would be perfect for either. We were a group of 7 students and the property easily housed us. We were impressed from the time of our arrival to when we left and will hopefully return in the future. A top class villa.
Thank you so much for such great review. We are very happy that you had a great time and we hope to welcome back soon again!

Relax in the beautiful garden or by the pool!
The position of the Villa is absolutely unique: Poggio al Pino is situated on a saddle (300m above sea level) overlooking Florence to the east on one side and the Tuscan hills on the west side, where the pool is located. In ITS simplicity, it is absolutely stunning.

On the second and top floor, there are four double bedrooms, three of Which have Their Own connected bathroom; a fourth bathroom is available on the same floor anche. A spacious wardrobe room can accomodate one single bed comfortably.
On the same floor, there is an amazing anche closed terrace overlooking the country hills.
A beautiful well kept garden surrounds the villa with a stunning view over the center of Florence, where in the distance you will see the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio. Directly connected to the spacious kitchen, there is a beautiful porch with the view over Florence where you will enjoy wonderful meals.
A gentle breeze mitigates the florentine sometime hot summer nights.
