About this Villa

A classic Renaissance villa set on a hill commanding an impressive view over the gorgeous Tuscan countryside with views of Fiesole, Panzano and Volterra.

This classic Renaissance style villa is located within a 1200 acre estate, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and old-growth hardwoods. Eight kilometers of easy driving separate the villa from Florence.

At 320 meters above sea level the house and the park have a commanding 360 degree breath taking view on Florence's surrounding countryside up to Giotto's bell tower and Brunelleschi's dome. The tower provides a splendid platform for panoramic views.

La Rovetta is an ideal place to relax in the arms of luxury. Prince Charles and Lady Diana were guests during their first trip together in Italy.

Surrounded by a large natural park, the grounds include a large swimming pool, a tennis court, a small amphitheater and many lovely paths for strolling. Interiors are elegant and stylish, yet comfortable and welcoming. But what sets this magnificent country house apart is the tower on its top level. Furnished as a comfortable living room, the tower has wraparound windows with panoramic 360 degree breathtaking views of the countryside, inviting a quiet hour with a book or a glass of wine at sunset.
