Villa Leopolda

Villa Leopolda

Tuscan countryside
up to 14 guests 7 bedrooms 6.5 bathrooms

Overview

This beautiful farmhouse was built under the reign of the Grand Duke Leopold of Lorena. The Lorena, a the dynasty that followed the Medici family as rulers of large parts of Tuscany, undertook a vast redevelopment initiative in the early 18th century, which lasted throughout the late 19th century. The aim of such initiative was guaranteeing adequate and healthy housing for peasant families. For this reason, buildings like this one have significant historical value and staying here offers more than one opportunity to learn more about Tuscany’s history.
