Il Colle di Sotto Cottage
Il Colle di Sotto Cottage. Not far from Florence, in the countryside of Montelupo Fiorentino, one finds the Villa – an independent cottage that is surrounded by olive groves and cypress trees. It enjoys a 360° view of the surrounding countryside that is composed of green, forest-covered hills.
Originally a hayloft, the Villa has been completely and attentively restored. The restoration preserved the details of the original structure such as arched windows and doorways and high, beamed ceilings.
Because of its advantageous location, the Villa is an ideal place for those who want a relaxing holiday amid the quiet Tuscan countryside and easy access to famous and important Tuscan cities.
The Villa follows a formula of five basic ingredients, the 5 C’s: Character, Courtesy, Calm, Charm, and Customer satisfaction.

The pool area is furnished with a table, chairs, sun beds and towels. It is encircled by a garden, and is in a panoramic position that offers enchanting views of the surrounding rolling hills. It is the ideal place for relaxing and refreshing with a swim.
