Villa Il Cerretino is located in a dominant position in the Montalbano hills, halfway between the towns of Carmignano and Poggio a Caiano, with an exceptional view of Florence which is Tuscany’s most important city. Guests will enjoy the peace and relaxation of this large property with extensive gardens and a private swimming pool set in the Tuscan countryside as well as the convenience of being in proximity to the most important Tuscan villages and towns to visit.

At the end of the 1960s, the property underwent a complete restoration and was transformed from the humble farm it had become back into a splendid and stately countryside villa. Today, the villa has been further renovated to be able to host stylish events, parties and weddings of up to 250 people for clients from Italy and the rest of the world. Villa Il Cerretino is not just an event venue because it is also possible to stay overnight in this beautiful and unique setting. The villa can be rented as a vacation property and represents the ideal accommodation for families or groups hosting a destination wedding, family reunion or as a base for a Tuscan holiday retreat surrounded by friends and relatives in a private and secluded setting.

The villa is comprised of 6 bedrooms on the first floor and many large and accommodating common spaces on the main floor. The entire villa has been furnished with the utmost care with a very strong focus on art and design. The furniture was designed in the 70s by Poltronova and is in harmony with the many paintings and sculptures of Italian Pop Art from the 60s. You will find works by artists such as Ettore Sottsass, Valerio Adami, Mario Ceroli and the whole Pistoia School with Roberto Barni, Umberto Buscioni and Gianni Ruffi. Guests are sure to appreciate the expressive intertwining and the fusion of styles that make this villa truly special.

In fact, alongside the modern style is the long and intriguing history of the property which includes a mysterious passageway (that still exists!) said to have been used by Bianca Cappello for her to secretly join her lover Francesco I de’ Medici during the Medicean era.
