  • Welcome to Villa Le Piazzole

    Villa Le Piazzole, a historical villa of the seventeenth century, has now been restored and transformed into a Residence and Bed & breakfast with large apartments offering the best services and comfort.

    The narrow hilly roads separating Villa Le Piazzole from the city center offer a cozy shelter from the noisy traffic, evidently benefiting the quality of the air and the quietness of the area. Villa Le Piazzole features a heated swimming pool from April to October, surrounded by a large garden with an ancient canopy. Our customers can use the self service laundry, and have breakfast upon request.

    Each apartment has its kitchenette with microwave oven, electric kettle, kitchenware, direct phone, Satellite TV, air conditioning, and safe.

    History of Villa le Piazzole

    Villa "Le Piazzole", until the 15th century the historical estate of the Acciaioli family, was built around an even older medieval tower. It is located on top of the Arcetri hill, at the intersection of two hilly roads quoted in the classical Florentine hill tour (via Suor Maria Celeste - via San Matteo in Arcetri).

    Despite being very close to the town, as the aerial pictures show, Villa Le Piazzole offers great quiet and peace thanks to the hills around it and the narrow motorless roads taking to the Villa. In our customers' words, this is a quiet, green oasis, "a different world", compared to Florence, and despite its closeness. You will likely come across hares and pheasants during your walks in the olive groves and the vineyards.
