Villa di Grace is located on Grace's large family property, comprising 48 acres of woods, golden fields of wheat and an organic apple orchard; placed in a beautiful garden, it offers privacy as well as cool breezes in the summer and breathtaking sunsets in the evening. Upon request, organic eggs from Grace's farm are available. Grace is available to prepare exquisite meals as an extra.

The Villa is located just outside of the town of Pratolino, in the Mugello region of Tuscany, the area to the north and east of Florence.
The scenic "via Bolognese," which begins at Piazza della Libertà, brings you directly to Pratolino, passing the famous Parco Demidoff — the storied abode of a Russian princess, famous for its giant statue of Appennino, the mountain god, carved in 1580 by Giambologna (whose sculptures also fill the Boboli Garden adjoining Palazzo Pitti).

There is a lot to visit in the surrounding countryside, including castles, Medici villas, the ancient town of Fiesole, and other nearby towns including Scarperia, Borgo S. Lorenzo, and Vicchio, the birthplace of Giotto and Piero della Francesca. The town of Pratolino, within walking or driving distance from the Villa (1.5 km or 1 mile from the Villa), offers a bank, post office, pharmacy, newsstand, supermarket and other few stores.

We spent 2 months in Grace's lovely villa near Pratolino. We love the villa and the surroundings. The nicely renovated tuscan villa is in a quite location, spacious, well equipped and it was spotless clean. Sitting in the Jacuzzi and watching the sundown is an amazing experience. The villa has a beautiful, gated garden, ideally for kids to play. It also offers amazing views over the hills around Florence. There are plenty of outdoor activities nearby (hiking, biking, horse riding, climbing). Florence is about 25 mins away by car, but there are plenty of excellent restaurants in the Pratolino/Vaglia area. Grace is a great host. She is a lovely person, was super responsive and helpful for all of our requests. Highly recommended!

Very big and well equipped villa. Perfect for family vacation. We spend 4 days with our 4 children (12-21) and it was exactly what we need. Grace is a great and lovely host.

This was our first Airbnb experience and we were a little nervous about what to expect. But from the first moment we spoke to Grace, me and my wife were made to feel completely at ease. Grace met us on the main road (after we arrived an hour earlier than expected) and brought us to her villa to meet the caretaker of her property. Even the driveway to the villa was a postcard moment. Once there, Grace and Ivo then showed us the villa and all of its features. The pictures of the villa are accurate and it is a beautiful property. The villa had every amenity we could have asked for, and all of the appliances were modern and worked flawlessly. The villa was very clean. The first night we even cooked on the beautiful gas stove after we picked up supplies at the small grocery store nearby; and then finished the day with a bottle of wine watching the sun dip into the surrounding hills. The villa was one positive experience - and Grace was the other. Grace had baked multiple tarts for us and had eggs / water waiting in the fridge. The cupboards were even filled with cooking supplies. She even brought our postcards to the post office when she was concerned with us not having enough time to make our train departure. Our only regret is that we had too few days to enjoy the villa even more. We truly found it difficult to leave Grace and her villa.

We had a fabulous stay here. It was a great value and worth every penny. Grace communicated throughout the process. She met us upon arrival and was so warm and inviting, as was the villa. She is an amazing person, very caring and warm, and we could tell that right away. She went out of her way to be personable and make us feel welcome. She had basic groceries there for us upon our arrival, fresh fruit, milk, bread and eggs, as well as espresso. The villa was clean and she provided plenty of fresh linens and comfy beds and pillows. We decided to spend more time at the villa than originally planned. The scenery was amazing. We didn't need the air-conditioning as there were cool breezes flowing throughout the house. The windows were screened and really we had no problems with mosquitos inside or out. There was plenty of hot water for the five of us everyday. The kitchen is fabulous, a joy to cook in. The villa is a great place for families. There is easy access as you can pull very close to the door. The home is secure, and gated. The villa is meticulously maintained and up to date with every modern convenience. There is a jacuzzi tub on the porch overlooking the hills and villas of Tuscany. There are two little supermarkets in town where you can get supplies. There is the Etruscan town of Fiesole about 15 minute drive, with much to see, and La Reggia restaurant, which was fabulous service and food. Florence is about 25 min. drive away. It was a beautiful trip in. We drove to the train station and took the train in to Florence one day, but we found it more convenient to drive into Florence. We found it easy to find a parking garage (in August) which was 20 E a day. You need a car when you stay here. The roads are very narrow and winding with lovely views along the way. Every turn is worth the journey. Don't hesitate to stay here. You will miss it the second the gate closes behind you.

When we arrived ath the gate of the house, the gate opened automatically and we drive to the house and there Grace was shaking her hands. The first impression was so fantastic! After the moment, she started to introduce from kitchen, 3 living rooms, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, jacuzzy, terrace, and garden. The house is much more than the photos, moreover, we will understand why the photos cannot express the size and impression of the house rightly. Especially the country field view from the house maked us speachless. We used sit down on the window for hours just seeing the view without words. At first our plan was to visit Firenze everyday, but we visited Firenze only two times, because staying in the house was better than walking around the hot and busy city center. I recommend to visit Firenze and other places every two days. Between the visiting, you'd better stay in the house and enjoy the Tuscana. Grace is beautiful and very nice women. She replied to our every small askings. Accompanying gentleman Igor(sorry if not correct letter) was also so nice and kind. They communicated with us like family. They hosted us with the greast care during the stay. The restaurants in Pratolino and small town are strongly recommended to visit. They are true Italian staurants and have menus unbelievable tastes. After visiting Firenze or cities, you can get rest and can enjoy the kindness of local people in the restaurants. I recommend visiting Firenze by blue bus not by no 25 bus that has too many stops. By blue bus it takes 25 minuits to the station. At the first visit to Firenze y bus, we have to check where to take the rerutn bus and when the buses leave the station(not on the post of bust stop but on the desk), because the blue bus does not run frequently. The terminal locates near Mcdonalds and supermarket. After cheking the time we only have to enjoy the cities. Some tips: Before returning to the house from Firenze, you'd better buy something from the supermaket on the bus terminal, because somethings cannot be bought in the marcket in Pratorino. The kitchen has everything(cooking fires are six!), so trying some cooking is recommended.

I spent a wonderful week in Grace's villa with my family and friends. The house is beautiful and spacious with a spectacular view of the Tuscan countryside. Grace was a wonderful host and very open to help us plan our trip around the various towns nearby. I would love to come back to stay here and recommend this house to anyone who plans to stay in the area.
