Villa Gentile is an authentic seventeenth-century countryside house. It is surrounded by a land rich in cultivations of vineyards and olive groves. The house is actually part of a farm where the Chianti wine and extra-virgin olive oil are produced. The villa, from above, dominates the vast valley where Florence lies.

Villa Gentile is a rustic house in stone and bricks which has kept itself intact through years of history, from past times up to our present moment. And it has not been restored to tourist purposes either. Even its interior and the division of rooms still maintain the original distribution. Original and age-old are also the beautiful floor in terracotta brick tiles and the vaulted ceilings with brick roof tiles and wooden joists.

On the ground floor of the villa there are the wine cellars, where the owners of the house still keep the wine in wooden barrels and the olive oil in old terracotta jars. A large room on the ground floor, which features brick vaults and is divided by arches, once being used as a place to fix agricultural tools, has been turned into a pleasant covered living area to the guests of the villa. The room is decorated with age-old rural tools and furnished with a couch, armchairs, a table with chairs, and a barbecue. This room leads to the garden and the swimming-pool. The residential area of the villa is on the first floor. All the rooms are spacious and furnished with family antique furniture.

The owners live in a villa right next door, and they are available to assist you in case you need with all their discretion.

The above-ground swimming pool is 5 meters (16 feet) large by 9 meters (30 feet) long. The swimming pool area is equipped with a table, chairs, sun umbrellas, deck chairs and sun loungers.
