Description

Villa Il Cerretino is located in the heart of Tuscan hills surrounding Poggio a Caiano just 25 minutes away from the tourist buzz of Florence and offers an exceptional scenic view over the city known as the cradle of Renaissance. The Villa is named after the small surrounding forest of thriving oaks (In the 15th century the building belonged to the Bini family (several coat of arms are still hanging on the wall of one tower and of the villa) before being acquired by the Medici family to which is linked the infamous story of the Villa set by Grand Duke Francesco I as Bianca Cappello’s residence, a Venetian noblewoman who was first his mistress and then became his second wife.

Villa Il Cerretino has recently been refurbished and can put up to 14 guests. The 5 rooms and 1 suite – all equipped with A/C, telephone and Wi-Fi – are finely decoreted in accordance with Tuscan tradition yet paying attention to spaciousness.
