Villa Mima is a splendid 18th century stone farmhouse that lies roughly equal distance between Florence, Siena, Pisa and the seaside. Gatherings of friends and family love this villa for its ideal location and dominant position with expansive views over the beautiful Chianti hills.

Located on a 10-acre olive orchard estate, Villa Mima is an impressive structure that was built at the beginning of the 1800s.  It comfortably accommodates up to 14 guests and measures 390 square meters (about 4090 square feet) in size.  The current owner is an artist and lives in the restored barn behind the main house in order to guarantee guests total independence and complete privacy. He has recently restored Villa Mima, creating harmony between  the authentic Tuscan character and up-to-date modern conveniences such as satellite television, wireless internet and air conditioning in each room. Great respect has been given to architectural style and traditional workmanship.  This is reflected in the immaculate white walls, handmade terracotta floor tiles and the mighty oak beams. Elegant  “pietra-serena” stone frames the windows and doors are made of cypress wood with antique style brass fittings.  This simplicity is not accidental.  It retains the gracefulness and integrity of the old farmhouse while blending with its rural setting.

The atmosphere at Villa Mima is one of privacy and peacefulness.  The property is reached by 800 meters of paved road and is accessed by a private driveway.  The attractive garden has a hammock and a number of benches for relaxing and reveling in the lovely surroundings.  The large swimming pool (12mX6m) sits in a very panoramic position. High quality sun loungers are provided and, due to the full southern exposure, there is sun continuously from morning to evening.

Guests can unwind around the pool, enjoying glasses of Chianti, or lounging on two panoramic terraces built off the main house. Dinner can be enjoyed by the pool or on the terraces. Guests have two equally tempting gastronomic choices: cooking their own food in the modern, fully equipped kitchen or on the BBQ, or hiring Villa Mima’s cook to prepare dinners for the entire group . Meals are served with olive oil straight from Villa Mima’s groves and much of the food and wine is produced by other Italian estates in the surrounding region.

Villa Mima was designed to take advantage of the soft Tuscan light and many of the rooms overlook the valley and have been opened up by rounded arches.   The natural beauty and nostalgic country feeling is expressed through the antique stone, terra cotta floors and warm shades of the wood beamed ceilings.  Furnishings are simple and include Tuscan hand wrought iron beds, antique furniture such as chest of drawers and armoires and Belle Époque bathrooms.
