Gloriante


Description


Welcome to Gloriante, a palatial Tuscan Villa overlooking the Chianti hills.

This exquisite eight-bedroom property is in an idyllic rural location with exceptional views and amenities. This spacious three-story Italian Villa is a masterclass in style and substance, with extensive gardens and a large outdoor pool.

If you long to experience a truly authentic Tuscan vacation, Villa Gloriante is the perfect home. This historic and elegant property interweaves generations of stories beneath its terracotta tiled roofs.

From the moment you arrive at this stately residence, you will fall in love with the character and grace of the estate. There’s something truly romantic about the rich ochre walls and shuttered windows of the frontal elevation. This beautiful property was once a rural residence for an illustrious Florentine family and was at the epicenter of their celebrated vineyard.

This part of Gloriante’s history may be consigned to the pages of the past, but as you relax in the stately reception rooms, sleep in the vaulted bedrooms, or roam the hillside gardens, you will have that happy sensation of walking in the footsteps of those fortunate forebears who once graced this timeless land.

The current owner of Gloriante inherited the estate in 1999 and began a tasteful and sensitive restoration that returned the property to its former grandeur while adding the necessary 21st-century amenities.

The grand entrance brings guests to the interconnected ground-floor reception rooms. As expected, these beautiful spaces are magnificent. Rich colors, antiques, lush fabrics, and an eclectic mix of art create a backdrop for a unique and sophisticated vacation. Villa Gloriante is a celebration of comfort and style. Vaulted ceilings, arched doorways, stately fireplaces, and large windows define the spaces.

The original architectural features have been retained, and this Tuscan manor returns you to a timeless setting. The beautiful main reception room, the adjacent library, and the timbered ceiling of the large dining hall are dramatic settings that deliver a memorable ambiance with true comfort and style.

The meticulous restoration by talented artisans and craftsmen has breathed new life into the painted floors, decorated ceilings, and original features. Each window beautifully frames the unparalleled views of the surrounding countryside, enticing guests to venture outside to explore the manicured gardens.

The ancient and historic city of Florence is the jewel on the horizon, being a mere 20 minutes from Villa Gloriante. The spacious botanical gardens that surround Gloriante are perfect for exploration. There are lovely lawn areas, shaded spaces, and, of course, the large infinity-edge swimming pool. The pool area is furnished with sun loungers. The views from the pool and its surroundings are limitless. The soft rolling hills of Tuscany unfold into the distance. From this gentle height, this beautiful view takes on an even more romantic charm at night as the farmhouses and small communities illuminate like a thousand stars.

Conveniently, there are outdoor showers by the pool. Also, the pool can be heated for an additional fee, which is ideal if your vacation is out of high season.

Gloriante’s eight bedrooms are distributed over the three floors. There’s a queen bedroom at ground floor level with a dedicated ensuite bathroom. Three further bedrooms are on the first floor (level two). Two of these bedrooms have king beds, and the third is a twin room. All three of these bedrooms have a private ensuite bathroom and are air-conditioned.

The remaining four bedrooms are on the second floor (level three). Two are king bedrooms with a private ensuite. The other two bedrooms are twin-bedded and share a bathroom. Again, these four bedrooms are air-conditioned. Guests navigate the Villa by internal staircases.

The contemporary kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances. There is a formal indoor dining hall and an outdoor pavilion for more informal alfresco dining.

Life at Gloriante is a magical combination of old-world charm and contemporary amenities. The Villa has Smart TVs with Prime Video and Netflix. Guests have access to WiFi and internet connectivity, too. The Villa has a heating system, should it be needed.

Gloriante is the perfect Tuscan villa for a large group or family vacation. The privacy, space, and location of this unique estate are ideal for relaxed, fun, and leisurely evenings. The Villa’s proximity to wonderful Florence, with its history and modernity, will suit everyone.

Embrace an elegant lifestyle in a property of distinction where beauty, grace, and style meld seamlessly, overlooking the vineyards and olive groves of this ancient land. Welcome to Gloriante, where harmony is always on the menu in this earthly paradise.

LOCATION:
Villa Gloriante is wonderfully situated within a short drive of Florence. This entire region is famous for its wine and gastronomic delights. You will want to visit the stunning wine villages of Castellina, Radda, and Gaiole. Sample some divine local wines or bring some home to enjoy leisurely overlooking the spectacular countryside.

Florence, as a city, has much to offer. It’s the undisputed home of the Renaissance, and you will find architecture, fine art, and sculpture interspersed within this vibrant and modern city. Guests longing for some retail will find designer shops side by side with cool boutiques. Stop for a relaxed dinner or a cool drink and watch the world drift by. A view of the legendary Arno River from the Ponte Vecchio is one of those bucket list sights.
