The space
Villa Afrodite B is an elegant and welcoming two-story apartment that is part of an ancient manor house. It sleeps four people. From Villa Afrodite B you will enjoy a charming view of the surrounding countryside. Villa Afrodite B is 80 square meters (860 square feet). It features a shared swimming pool, a shared garden, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed), winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.
You will be roughly 3 km (1.9 miles) from the center of Florence, 1 km (roughly 1100 yards) from a restaurant, from shops and the stop for the local bus.
Villa Afrodite B is located on the ground floor of a villa. You will reach it from the parking area going up approximately two stairway steps.
For a succesful stay at Villa Afrodite B we recommend having a car. You will be able to park it free of charge on the premises. Villa Afrodite B is one of the holiday homes available in a small complex. Please find a general description of the complex below, and please scroll further down for a description of Villa Afrodite B.
Villa Afrodite is a pleasant and relaxing alternative to visit Florence while staying just a step outside the city itself. You can easily reach downtown and at the same time enjoy the pleasures of the countryside.

Villa Afrodite is located on the slopes of the hill of Settignano. The hill is part of a protected area dominated by olive groves, vineyards, cypresses and oak-trees.

From Villa Afrodite you will be able to quickly reach downtown Florence and everything it has to offer: history, art, fine restaurants, night clubs, elegant shops as well as theatres and cinemas. Back home, you can relax in the peace of the countryside: you can enjoy the swimming pool and its sun deck, the barbecue area or a relaxing walk.

The owner will be happy, if you ask, to cheer your stay organizing tours and wine tasting in the Chianti region, reserving  museums tickets and providing a transfer service from and to the airport or the train station on demand.

Villa Afrodite is a traditional Florentine countryside home: its structure dates back to the XVI century. The restoration made in 2007 has maintained its original aspect and mixed the ancient character together with modern amenities. The charming Florentine atmosphere is revealed through the use of typical Tuscan materials as stone, terracotta tiles, wood beams and wrought iron. The interior decoration and the choice of furniture (including some antique pieces) are in harmony with the character of the region. The ancient rural spaces, such as the grindstone for olives and the wine cellar, have retained their historical charm.

The swimming pool is open from the beginning of May until the end of September.

Ciao! My name is Luca, and I work for the vacation rental company "Summer In Italy". My job is to help travelers find the perfect holiday home for their holidays in our beautiful country, which is, you guess, Italy :-) Over the years we have assembled an amazing catalog of over 1400 fine Italian holiday homes -- each one inspected by a member of our team -- and I am proud today of presenting a selection of our portfolio on Airbnb. I think this is a great opportunity for travelers to enjoy both the convenience of this trusted platform and the professional service that we have cheerfully provided for many, many years to thousands of holidaymakers from all over the world. Easy bookings and world-class help: how can you beat that? :-) I would like to invite you to be in touch and ask questions. It would be a true pleasure for me not only to help you rent a holiday home, but also help you find the right one, and assist you with questions you might have about your trip to Italy. Like having a friend who lives there and who is eager to help.
