Villa Il Forte was at the origin (century 13/14) a fortified position, elements of which have come to light, such as the colonnade surrounding the courtyard and the walls of the tower structure, elements that have made possible a particularly refined restoration and the creation of environments of charm. Even the terracotta floor is specially manufactured with a mixture of black kaolin to get the gray-brown colour to harmonize with the walls made of local stone. Villa Il Forte is situated near to San Donato in Collina, only 14 km from Florence, well connected to many art sites, and is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and forest trees: an ideal place for a restful and cultural holiday.

Even the terracotta floor is specially manufactured with a mixture of black kaolin to get the gray-brown colour to harmonize with the walls made of local stone. Villa Il Forte is situated near to San Donato in Collina, only 14 km from Florence, well connected to many art sites, and is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and forest trees: an ideal place for a restful and cultural holiday. The villa is entirely equipped with ecological, sustainable energy sources, as solar cells for electricity and geothermal system for heating and refreshment of air. The separate 'Fitness House' with hydromassage, sauna, equipment for gym and bar, is located half way between 'La Leopoldina' and 'Villa Il Forte'. Its use will be exclusive for the first clients who will reserve it for an extra cost. The orientation of the common areas of the two villas (pools, dining rooms, barbecue ...) ensures complete autonomy and intimacy to each of the two residential areas. Accommodation: Villa Il Forte can easily accommodate 16 people (4 in the adjacent dependence) in luxurious comfort. Available facilities: refreshment of air, heating, fireplace, satellite TV, internet connection, biliard room, washing machine, dryer, baby bed (upon request), barbecue, private swimming pool, parking place. The kitchen is professionally fully equipped. Here you will find a dishwasher, oven, stove, double sink, large fridge, American Coffee maker and more. The villa is divided in 3 floors: on the ground floor there is a professional kitchen with direct access to a covered pergola with BBQ, pizza oven and table and chairs. On the same floor there is a large dining room, a sitting room with flat screen and DVD, a Lobby (85 sqm) with piano (reception, sitting room, conference room or eating room), a bathroom with shower and a service bathroom. The ground floor hosts also a king size bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub. On the first floor there are a triple bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub, a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower, a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and bathtub, a single bedroom with bathroom next door with shower. On the mezzanine floor you will find another sitting room with flat screen and DVD. On the second floor there is a king size bedroom with big bathroom divided in two by a sliding door: first part with the lavabo and the second part with WC and shower. Adjacent to the villa there is a dependence (80 mq) with sitting room with kitchen on the ground floor. On the first floor there are a double bedroom with bathroom next door with shower and a king size bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub. THE DEPENDANCE IS ONLY RENTED TOGETHER WITH THE VILLA. Garden & Swimming Pool: In the garden you find a gazebo organized for dining al fresco or just relaxing. The swimming pool (6 x 12 and deep from 1,20 to 2,80 meters) is open from April to October. For children safety the pool has been completely fenced with a wooden railing and a gate.
