About Villa

For those looking for total seclusion and leisure in the heart of Tuscany, Villa Boccaccio, perched on a hill with picturesque views of the surroundings, is the ideal hideaway. Encircled by a tranquil landscape of gently undulating hills, this property has undergone a comprehensive restoration while retaining the essence and ambiance of an aristocratic mansion. This magnificent Villa, which dates back to 1210, can house up to twelve people and has six bedrooms—four double beds and two twin rooms—each with an en suite bathroom.

The Counts Alberti di Certaldo, the head of the powerful Longobard family who ruled the neighboring Elsa valley, constructed Caput Aulae as the hub of Val d'Elsa's court in 1210, marking the beginning of the Villa's history. Up until the 17th century, the Alberti family held and occupied this magnificent castle, which they eventually turned into an opulent residence. The square brick tower and the defensive walls beside the villa are remnants of the ancient 13th-century fortified fortress.

The mansion is complemented by opulent amenities such as a private pool, a dedicated chapel, a 13th-century tower, and stunning views of the surrounding landscape. There is a sizable garden in front of the property with views of the Tuscan countryside. There's a lawn and an arcaded loggia surrounding the private pool, which is accessed by a stairway. The poolside area provides a serene atmosphere, making it the perfect place to soak up the sun and relish blissful moments of leisure.

The ground level features a large living room with a fireplace accessible from the front entrance. A stunning marble staircase ascends to the first floor on the left. There is a corridor leading from the living room to the other rooms of the house. The kitchen is large and well-equipped, with vaulted ceilings and terracotta floors. Beyond a guest restroom along the corridor is an opulent dining area with French windows overlooking the courtyard. Additionally, there is a double bedroom with a Jacuzzi tub in the en suite bathroom on this floor.

A lengthy hallway on the first level connects the bedrooms, which are located at the summit of the marble staircase. A double bedroom with an attached Jacuzzi tub and shower can be found on the right. Two twin bedrooms with separate bathrooms—one with a shower and tub and the other with a Jacuzzi and shower—are located to the left. Additionally, there is a double bedroom with a balcony that looks out onto the front yard and an en suite bathroom that has a Jacuzzi tub and shower on this floor.

The annex is a medieval tower standing alongside the villa and has its own access. From the living room on the ground floor a staircase takes you up to a double bedroom with its own bathroom with shower. Here you will also find a breathtaking roof terrace. A Limonaia is converted into a casual sitting room, with six arched windows offering sweeping views of surrounding countryside. In the garden there is also a 13th-century chapel dedicated to Saint Bartholomew, restored during the 18th century, which contains a crypt.

In the Area

Nestled amidst the tranquil Tuscan countryside, this exquisitely refurbished villa is in a prime location to discover the area's most remarkable natural marvels and cultural attractions. This upscale property offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside and is the ideal starting point for day trips to some of Tuscany's most picturesque towns. It also offers a singular chance to take in the region's extraordinarily rich historical and cultural legacy while admiring Tuscany's magnificent landscapes.

One of Italy's best-preserved medieval villages, San Gimignano, is only a few kilometers away from the house. From a distance, San Gimignano like a town from a Renaissance painting: a ring of walls dating back to the 13th century encircling tall, precarious stone towers. Although its towers give it an instantly recognizable appearance, the artwork within its walls is equally stunning. Despite the town's modest size, there is plenty of excellent food, art, and architecture to occupy you for several days.

The property is located close to Florence, an incredible modern art hub with a wealth of artwork. Beyond its remarkable artistic legacy, which bears witness to its centuries-long civilization, the best ways to experience Florence are strolling along the avenues beside the river at sunset, getting lost in the countless lanes of the bohemian Oltrarno, or exploring the tiny, winding streets of San Niccolò, which give you the impression that you have traveled back in time along its ancient walls.

The medieval town of Siena is only a short distance away from the home. It is a must-see for anybody visiting Tuscany because of its historic red brick structures, the oblong-shaped Piazza del Campo main square, and the Cathedral Square, which is dominated by the zebra-striped Duomo. Impressively, Siena is an outdoor museum honoring the Gothic style, with impressive art collections and secular monuments that have managed to preserve their medieval shapes.
