villa layout
The property is inside the Renaissance grounds of the Villa Favard, at the south entrance to the city of Florence, on the old Roman road called via Aretina. Surrounded by green vegetation and yet only a few minutes from the old city center of Florence, since 1946 it has been the home of a precious artisan cloth-mill which was started by the Countess of Frassineto in order to continue the ancient Renaissance tradition of weaving by hand. The large apartment has been furnished with good taste in the classic Tuscan style and all the bedrooms have ceiling-fans and a TV. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher and electric oven and in the living-room guests can play billiards (pool table) and use the stereo/CD. In the large external areas you may walk around the private, completely enclosed grounds or take a refreshing swim in the (7x12 meter) swimming-pool which is shared with the owners. Guests may leave their car in the internal parking area and reach the old city center of Florence by public transportation (the bus stop is 200 meters away) in less than fifteen minutes. Therefore, guests at Il Parco have the rare privilege of living in one of the few quiet, green areas inside the city of Florence.

"My family & I , five adults and five children aged two to seventeen years recently spent three weeks in Italy. We booked three villas in total. Il Parco was by far the best accomodation we experienced in Italy. The owners were lovely & very hospitable while the villa was stunning & beautifully appointed. The location is very secure, behind wonderfully ornate gates and set in a lovely parkland. The presentation of the rooms were scrupulously clean while the pool table was a huge hit with the teenagers.The bus into Florence is just around the corner and only takes a few minutes to reach the centre of town.Once again thank you so much for your hospitality during our stay.
Best Regards

"We had a fantastic time at Il Parco. I was a little nervous before we arrived there since I had never seen the property, only on the internet, and I was afraid it would be too small for our group of 14. But my fears turned to joy when we checked in. The owner met us as scheduled and was very nice and accommodating. The villa was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. It looked as if it had been recently remodeled; the bathrooms were very nice in each room. On the website is said that two rooms had to share a hallway bathroom but this was not the case…each room had their own. There was plenty of room for the two extra roll-away beds for the children. My family loved the big kitchen area and room with the pool table. There was plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy the estate. The grounds of the villa were also very lovely with a park and a beautiful tree lined lane that led to the outer gate. Being summer the pool was a big hit, it too was very nice and well maintained. We had several night swims there. Even though it was very hot during the day outside, the villa seemed to remain fairly cool with just the ceiling fans and nighttime it was very comfortable. The bus into Florence was just down the street about a five minute walk and was very convenient and a good way to see the neighborhoods and Italian people. Upon departure the caretaker arranged for four taxis to pick us up and take us to the train station, which was very nice.
Your service to me was excellent leading up to the trip. You always responded quickly and accommodated my many requests easily. The financial arrangements were very easy and professional as well. I will definitely recommend Villa in Italia to my friends and we would return to Il Parco in a heartbeat! My family is already scheming on a way to get back there soon.

Thank you for all of your help and best wishes to you,
(August 2009)
"Everybody had a really nice holiday in florence. The Villa was beautiful and the landlady was very helpful and friendly. Thank you very much for your help and i would have no trouble recommending Il Parco to friends and family.
Thanks again Seamus"

"We loved the place. It was so spacious. Location was great and the bus service was close to the apartment which made it very easy to get to the center of town. We really enjoyed our stay
Thanks for all your help

"I must say we had a very positive experience at both properties we rented from you this summer - in addition to Il Parco, of course, we rented Le Scuderie in Lamole. The owners of Le Scuderie were very friendly and even arranged for us to have a private tour of the Vasariano Corridor at the Uffizi! Both owners were there at the appointed times and we had no problems at all. It was a pleasure and we will be sure to rent from you again as well as recommend your company to our friends.

Thank you!

Best Regards,

"We had a wonderful time at Il Parco. The accommodations were perfect for our large group! We had the pleasure of meeting many people in the neighborhood who were so helpful and nice!
We have already recommended your website to several of our family and friends and we hope to visit again!

"I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Il Parco. It was an absolutely magnificent vacation for me and my family; Il Parco was just perfect! I also want to thank you for being so helpful and patient with me while I decided on a villa- I will certainly contact you again when we book our next Italian vacation.

Thank you!

Kind regards,
