Medici villa with views of Florence

Florence, Tuscany

€ 29.000.000

Description

With views along the Arno River towards Florence, Villa La Tana is arguably the best villa outside the city available for sale. Stunning double-ramped staircase, frescoed ceilings, wellness area and elegant gardens combined with all the modern comforts.

This beautiful Medici villa was bought by Grand Duke Francesco Medici I de Medici (1570) and gifted to his lover, Bianca Cappello, whom he later married. After their demise, the villa was purchased by the Santa Maria Nuova hospital. Although the property was not used as a hospital, the villa and the over 30 farmhouses and several hundred hectares of land were used for making wine, olive oil and other foods to be sold in the city.

In 1631 the property was purchased by Barone Leon Francesco Pasquale Ricasoli and in 1700 by Arch. Giulio Foggini, who is also the architect who made the tomb of Galileo Galilei at the Basilica Santa Croce.

Later in the 19th century Arch. Poggi, (who eliminated the walls around Florence in order to prepare the city to become the capital of Italy and who also made Viale Michelangiolo), constructed the winding driveway and made a description of the villa.
