About Dimora Bonavista

Sophisticated, quirky and unique: that’s the refined villa of Dimora Bonavista. This 11th-century guard tower has always offered stunning panoramic views over the Tuscan countryside. After all, that has been its historic raison d'etre. Yet it was not necessarily certain that it would make an elegant home. It's testament to its restorers that this is the sort of holiday villa you want to return to year after year.

Quite simply, Dimora Bonavista stands out as one of the most refined villas available as holiday home. Located a short drive from Florence, the villa is immersed in a 10 hectare park. The grounds and the views are equally impressive. A private swimming pool lies hidden in a perfectly manicured garden that has been created by the famous Italian landscaper Pietro Porcinai. The scent of lemon trees drifts over the stunning terrace that leads from the living room, and is ideal for al fresco dining while enjoying yet another beautiful sunset.

Inside, there's an exquisite mix of original Biedermeier furniture, rare Empire paintings, splendidly intricate mirrors, handmade linen curtains, large comfy white sofas and modern objects d'art. It's bright, it's engaging and it's sophisticated. Spread over 500m2 it's also spacious. This unique grand villa is ideal for family reunions, entertaining friends or a truly decadent romantic break away.
