VILLA FERDINANDA

Elegant small hotel above Florence

Overview

This villa was originally nothing more than simple peasant farm. In the XV century it became one of the properties of the Medici family.

 

During the centuries the villa was home to several families. The man who gave the garden its current romantic look was sir John Francis Slone, inspired by the Gothic style.

 

More than 30.000 different plants have been cultivated in the gardens, in order to create a unique setting reproducing the typical Romantic atmosphere: you have the impression to be in the middle of something really special. There are varied and fascinating open-air spaces that are perfectly merged with the surrounding environment: the parterre, the Italian garden, a tiny lake, and many beds and areas of roses, hydrangeas, and peonies.

 

The winter garden is set in a old iron greenhouse restored in the finest detail; a soft light penetrates and give life to an intimate and relaxing atmosphere. Completely transformed into a modern lounge, it is the ideal setting to enjoy total privacy and quiet.

 

A dreamy villa set in the Tuscan hilltops with a wonderful view on Florence valley is the perfect place for the most important day of your life. With its several and sophisticated outdoor and indoor spaces the villa offers you the perfect location for an unforgettable wedding.
