Pontassieve (Florence)


Villa Rufina
Villa Rufina


The villa is located in Valdisieve, near Pontassieve, a charming village perched on the hills that surround Florence.

The small town halfway between Florence and the Mugello mountains is an excellent departure point for walks and bike and horseback rides, as well as for visiting the nearby nature parks and protected areas (such as the nature area of Santa Brigida, Poggio Ripaghera and Valle dell'Inferno and the park along the River Arno).

Palazzo Sansoni-Trombetta, which houses the coats of arms of the "podestà" who governed Pontassieve, the church of San Giovanni in Monteloro, situated near the ruins of the homonymous castle, and the sanctuary of Madonna delle Grazie (also known as the sanctuary of Madonna del Sasso), built in 1490 on the ruins of a medieval oratory, are worth a visit.


The villa overlooking the surrounding countryside is the result of the restoration of an ancient hamlet that in the past belonged to the Cerchi family. The small chapel next to the villa is dedicated to the Blessed Umiliana de' Cerchi.
Florence and its monuments (including the basilica of Santa Croce, which houses the remains of the Blessed Umiliana) are easily reached both by car and by train.

The private swimming pool (10x4 m; depth: 1.50 m) lies in the wide garden that stretches around the villa.
The terrace that runs along the perimeter of the building is furnished for relaxing and having meals in the open air.
