Villa di Collina is a historic villa in Tuscany, Italy, located near the village of Vicchio in the Mugello region, also known as “The Switzerland of Tuscany”. The private villa is situated just 35 km north of Florence, in a dominant position with a magnificent view over the Tuscan countryside.
Villa di Collina is available as a year round villa and provides accommodation for 14 guests. The villa consists of: large reception hall, living room, dining room, drawing room, spacious country kitchen, 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, as well as a walled garden, a panoramic terrace with outstanding views and a private swimming pool.
Although no definite records have been found, the origin of Villa di Collina goes back for many centuries to the Renaissance years, and quite possibly to the Middle Ages. The house is first shown on a 17th century map of the Mugello region; it was then much smaller and belonged to the Martellucci family. The family of the present owner inherited the property in the mid-1700’s.
