What We Love

  • Eating fabulous Tuscan meals outside on the riverbank at Il Verrocchio as the Arno floats by below
  • Incredible views all around, whether of the Florence Duomo, the Arno or the surrounding hills, dotted with Medicean palazzos
  • Combining a city break in Florence with a stay in the Tuscan semi-countryside
  • The feeling of staying in a 16th-century villa – this is the type of place people pay to visit
  • When Florence heats up in the summer, the area around the villa is a blissful few degrees cooler
  • WiFi is free throughout the property

What To Know

  • It’s five miles from the city center, though free shuttle buses will whisk you straight to the Ponte Vecchio in 15 minutes (on the hour from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
  • The (heated) pool is open from the end of April to early October, weather permitting
  • Il Verrocchio serves great food, but expect to pay through the nose for it
  • Don’t come expecting sweeping gardens and vast grounds – the feel is more a residential villa with a small garden and field out back
  • This isn’t in the countryside, either – Candeli is a small village, and there are other villas in the surrounding hills
  • There’s a train line nearby, but although you’ll hear noise outdoors, you won’t be disturbed inside – and you can’t see it
  • The basement spa and fitness room are both tiny – but there’s a great alfresco fitness trail

Romantic lunch

We are overlooking the Arno and basking in the Tuscan fall light. Our waiter brought a lovely Sangiovese rose, tasty dumplings and spaghetti with pesto. A dreamy meal that we highly recommend replicating!
