Villa Lisa is located in San Casciano in Val di Pesa, surrounded by a typical Tuscan landscape, known for the harmonious feel of its ancestral beauty. Dazzling and perfect, this magnificent landscape is just 20 kilometers away from Florence. Villa Lisa’s splendid property stretches for more than seven hectares, hosting agricultural buildings that once belonged to an old-time farm. The grounds boast a chapel, fruit groves, as well as an Italian-style garden. In the center, you’ll find a majestic Villa built on the foundations of a pre-existing structure dating back to medieval times when it belonged to a powerful Florentine Guelph family. In 1560 it was purchased by the Gianfigliazzi family. In the 18th century, it housed the precious Vasari archives and subsequently a collection of Napoleonic memorabilia when it was owned by the granddaughter of the Emperor.
The Villa has been restored to preserve and reveal the aesthetic and historic value of the Villa. Old Floors in terracotta, wood, and stone. Plasters in marble powder and lime. There is AC/CH throughout the Villa which sits over three floors and has a tower and large basements.
The old floors have been restored and replaced, the original 18th-century frescos and decorations remain and the bathrooms are of a variety of marble tiling. One can wander from room to room in a timeless trance and enjoy internal courtyards, a winter garden, and a wonderful Tuscan kitchen along with many bedrooms and bathrooms providing ample accommodation for either a Boutique Hotel or a large family home with many guest rooms and entertaining ideas.
The property has been restored to conserve the charm and atmosphere of a large, symmetrical villa, and below the villa are some of the most impressive cellars in Tuscany. The cellars could create wonderful spaces for art, vintage cars, music, or wine collections! One could have a Spa, an indoor pool, and any number of amazing rooms to enjoy with ceilings reaching 15 mt in height.
