OVERVIEW Villa Gioli

Set high in the idyllic landscape of the hills southeast of Pisa, this patrician country house is approached by an age-old alley of birch trees which, beyond the tall gates, leads into the spacious and well-kept gardens of the villa.

This was once home to two brothers, renowned artists and philanthropists – Francesco and Luigi Gioli – who for many years invited leading exponents of the Italian impressionist movement “the Macchiaioli” to spend their summers here. It was from here that these painters could venture out into the open countryside, capturing the play of light on nature in all its many hues and facets and transferring them to canvas.

On the ground floor, the large living room opens onto an extensive lawn bordered by English roses and hydrangeas. Spreading holm oaks lend their shade to a magical outdoor living area. Above the painter’s atelier, on top of the tower of the villa, a stunning loggia with arches on all four sides gives you marvellous views onto the surrounding landscape.

There are six large and airy bedrooms, all of which enjoy a splendid view. They have been decorated in a traditional Tuscan country house style with iron bedsteads, lively cotton print upholstery as well as with paintings and other family antiques.

The private pool of Villa Gioli is located in a sunny and secluded part of the garden.
