This beautiful Villa built in the fourteenth century and recently restored has now become the prestigious residence Villa Sassolini. It was once the summer residence of important aristocratic Florentine families, like the counts Guidi, and stands out in the vast panorama of Tuscan estates, that offer accommodation for its ability in blending traditional charm with contemporary chic design.
