A gravel, tree lined drive leads through a farm to the villa. Less than 2 miles away there is a tiny village with a grocer’s and a coffee bar. Fucecchio has a beautiful medieval centre to visit, as well as an interesting museum. Nearby is also the natural reserve of Padule, where one can take a guided tour and observe the local wildlife and the town of Vinci, the birthplace of Renaissance scholar Leonardo, where one can visit the farmhouse in which he was born and the museum which displays some of his inventions. This Tuscany villa for rent is certainly an ideal location for those with naturalistic or cultural interests.
