il borgo mandorla
Doubles 2 Bathrooms 2
Il Borgo Mandorla is a luxury stone house for rent in Italy and is part of a hamlet immersed in the Tuscan countryside, only about 35 kilometers from Florence. This antique hamlet is located within a vast estate of a thousand hectares and has been converted into one luxury villa with private pool, and 5 private high end homes with shared pool available for weekly vacation rentals. This deluxe holiday home is situated in the Valdarno area, one of the most historically important areas of Tuscany at the doors of Florence.
Beyond these exclusive homes, the property includes some common areas such as the restaurant, the swimming pool and some sitting rooms.
The area in which Mandorla is located is of great fascination and charm surrounded by olive groves where nature is the real protagonist.
The hamlet was a 6th-century convent, which has since been renovated, transforming the original rooms into refined meeting places with high technology such as the conference room, the library, the restaurant and the wine cellar which is only open to guests.
A showcase where everything has been thought of to find the right equilibrium between ancient and contemporary styles and a dream where nature and luxury fuse together. During your stay tasting of the olive oil made on the farm can be organised in the hamlet. Mandorla faces onto the eastern side of the village square forming the perimeter. The building made of stones and brick is dominated by a large walnut tree overhanging the loggia.
A private garden of 500m2 belongs to Mandorla. Antique furniture and modern design pieces are combined with taste and refinement. Guests staying at Mandorla can use the communal swimming pool at the centre of the hamlet.

"The villa was so beautiful and peaceful and perfectly located: close to Florence and other sights and cities in Tuscany. The concierge service from Home in Italy was excellent - from assisting us with grocery shopping to organizing a nanny etc. Home in Italy assistance was Excellent. It really made traveling with a family (and baby) such a pleasure because everything we requested was arranged in advance and made our arrival completely stress free. Thank you so much!! We really had a wonderful holiday and will definitely like to visit the villa again in future (as well as look at other villas at Home in Italy. We will also certainly recommend you to our friends and family. "
