OVERVIEW Villa Strozzi
Situated on the grounds of the Collegalli Estate in Montaione, the origins of Villa Strozzi date back to the 12th century. With its 19th century interior décor and its large rooms, the villa certainly captures the essence of Tuscan aristocratic country life.

The drawing room piano will delight those wishing to have a tinkle on the ivories, while others may prefer to take advantage of the billiard room or the peace and tranquillity of the nearby chapel.
The 2-bedroom annex is made up of 2 doubles or twins (as per your request). One bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, the other bedrooms has a WC and a wash-basin. The rooms share a living room and a small kitchen where breakfast can be prepared.
Visitors can also enjoy the local wildlife including boars and hares for the more adventurous, while those looking for a relaxing escape can enjoy a dip in the pool, which is situated close to a sun terrace where lemon trees offer shade from the Summer sun.

The Collegalli Estate lies in the hills half way between Florence and Pisa, not far from the town of San Miniato, known for its white truffle and exciting the truffel market held each year in November and December .
The estate is approached by a beautiful country road. With each bend the modern world fades out a little more and then, all of a sudden, on the other side of a small valley, you see the villa, a rectangular, elegant building, set above a dramatic abyss.
Originally the site of a castle built by Count Ranieri in 1123, the estate has since passed through many hands and was given its current appearance more than a 100 years ago. Now owned by Franca Burgisser, who with the help of her three daughters, welcomes guests with a warm and friendly smile.
The Estate is well known locally for its pheasant farming and shoots, incredible extra virgin olive oil and its summer crops of wheat, maize and sunflowers. However, it is the building and its surroundings which bring guests back year after year.
The interior has been restored to its 19th century glory. But perhaps it is simply the atmosphere which holds the most promise at Collegalli Estate. This is a lovely example of a place where time has stood still – where life moves at a slower pace and where one can leave the cares of the world behind.
