    About this property

    Originally a 13th-14th century fort, this restored holiday villa in Tuscany in the Valdarno valley now provides a luxury, eco-friendly retreat or venue for up to 16 guests.
    Divided into two properties, the estate is tastefully decorated with a blend of modern and traditional features, with period furnishings throughout. The main villa includes six sizeable bedrooms with en suite baths, some with private lounges, a gorgeous modern kitchen, and multiple dining and lounge spaces to gather the group. Guests can enjoy access to a fitness room with a sauna and Jacuzzi, as well as a spacious living area that’s easily convertible for conferences.
    The annex consists of two additional bedrooms, and is warmly inviting with its wood burning porcelain stove and cozy living room.
    Surrounded by olive plantations, vineyards, and forests, the estate grounds are prefect for entertaining, with a BBQ and pizza oven, large patio and pergola with valley views, and a sparkling pool.
    While in a peaceful rural location, the villa is just 14km from the cultural centre of Florence. Be sure to stop by La Bottega in nearby San Donato in Collina for local delicacies – from delicious cured meats and regional wine, to house made focacci. 

    In the heart of a large rural estate, Villa Forte is set in a delightful, relaxing and untouched corner of Tuscany on the Val d’Arno hills, only 14 km from Florence in the direction of Arezzo. The villa is located near San Donato in Collina and is within close distance to the cities of Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa, Assisi and Urbino.

    All of the electric energy is generated by solar power. The air conditioning, heating and cooling systems are generated by geothermal energy.
