Villa overview - owner's description
Casale Brigida is an 18th century farmhouse nestled in the Florence countryside, lovingly renovated into an amazing Villa that can host up to 14 guests. A great deal of work has gone into creating the perfect modern country getaway within a rustic building that has retained the solid oak beam ceiling and many orginal features.
Surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, you can laze by your own private swimming pool in the lawn, while taking in stunning views of the neighbouring Castello that has stood firm upon the landscape for over 900 years. Inside, the huge open plan kitchen and dining area comes complete with all amenities, whilst any budding chefs will be excited by the authentic Pizza oven, and BBQ outside.
As an added bonus, the whole house receives power from a solar panelling system, allowing you to relax in guilt free, ecologically friendly indulgence.
Casale Brigida, old farm house from XVIII century, was recently renovated into an amazing Villa that can host, together with the next door Dependence, up to 14 people (also including the sofabed); over 1 year passionate work to create a unique atmosphere where to relax; pool with view on the 900 year old castle, surrounded by vines and olive trees.
