Villa I Busini is a luxury large villa for rent in Tuscany located on a hillside at just thirty minutes from Florence. The architects honored the past and present in a family luxe Renaissance home dating back to 1400 circa owned in the past by the Medici family creating a unique fusion of Renaissance architecture, and original Florentine frescoes. After a patient recovery project that lasted for years, this private luxurious villa is now a favorite of high-profile guests seeking quiet relaxation in the enchanting hills of Tuscany, providing elegant accommodation for 14 guests. Its restoration has been an incredible work of art, being every modern element hidden, to leave the stuccoes, the coffered ceilings, the fifteen fireplaces protagonists of the scene. The ornate décor captures an authentic Renaissance flair with a sense of chic glamour. It is a discreet orchestra that never ceases to echo an extraordinary and at the same time daily splendor. Hand-selected antiques, Renaissance artworks, stained glass windows, Coat of the Arms tapestries, and stone statues capture the Villa’s glorious past and make this villa an ultimate luxury getaway in Tuscany. Villa I Busini is surrounded by seven acres of land shielded by a 15th century stone wall which protects the manicured Renaissance Gardens, the swimming pool and various outdoor furnished areas. The surrounding private land is covered by vineyards and ancient olive groves. With its private chapel, its glorious outdoor space and its postcard-perfect views, Villa I Busini is the ideal location for intimate luxury weddings, private events, corporate retreats or simply for all those who wish to step back in time and choose elegance and timeless charm for their luxury vacation in Tuscany.
