About Villa Ema

Experience la dolce vita when you stay in the beautiful country retreat – Villa Ema lies only four km from Florence. This luxurious family home, with views of the Tuscan hills, not only boasts its own saltwater swimming pool but also a yoga house. It’s the perfect choice for holiday with family or friends. 

The newly restored five-bedroom home, which comfortably sleeps 10, consists of the main villa and two guest houses, which each have a double bedroom. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of staying in the heart of the countryside with olive trees and vineyards, while being close to one of Italy’s most iconic cities and the Certosa monastery.

Inside the main villa you’ll find cool, clean lines for minimalist living with each air-conditioned bedroom decorated with hues of grey and white. The open-plan living room includes a dining area with island kitchen. A guest bathroom and laundry room with washer and dryer complete this floor. Each guest house has bathroom with shower. Relaxing will come easy at Villa Ema. Retreat to your own yoga house for some me-time or join family and friends for a swim in the infinity pool before firing up the pizza oven.
