B&B Villa le Sorgenti
We will be here at Villa le Sorgenti ,from May to October, to welcome you into our world in communion with nature. It is an intriguing round, almost magical place where the quietly flowing waters of the Arno will wash away your worries.
Life on the Fattoria Le Sorgenti estate is filled with opportunities: luncheons, dinners, tasting sessions, and the delights of the swimming pool are waiting for you, or you can simply enjoy the outdoors, the views and delightful paths that wind through the vineyards and the woods.
An independent suite on the top floor of the Villa will be waiting to let you taste the pleasures of sun-filled country life. The large living room, four double bedrooms, a dressing room, kitchen and bathrooms furnished in excellent taste will make your stay at Villa le Sorgenti even more enjoyable.
Le Sorgenti, is a Renaissance villa built in 1585 and surrounded by a large park that was once a formal Italian garden where we can still see – and use – the paths that run through the vineyards and natural terraces overlooking the Arno River.
It is a refuge where tranquility and simple joy of living reign, offering history-filled views and beautiful natural panoramas.
Here the lightness of being joins hands with the bouquet of a wine and tempting, traditional Tuscan cuisine.
The villa’s large common rooms, bedrooms and suites are brimming with history and tell a unique story through the furnishings, windows and balconies. The bright, airy and, above all, quiet guestrooms are waiting to fulfill your dreams.
The parlor and terraces are perfect settings for dinners, while delightful cocktails, wine-tasting and grill evenings are poolside favorites.

Greet the day with the breakfast buffet (that includes fresh fruit, jams and cakes made on the premises) in the parlor or out on the terrace.
You can choose a lazy day in the cool garden, by the pool or perhaps something more exciting, such as the Land Rover “safari” tour of the estate’s fifty-odd hectares to see first hand how the vineyards and olive groves are tended… or do some botanical observation of the forest and the undergrowth.
Or, you can opt for a short hike to the Fonte del Re, one of the three historic springs on the estate.
A walk to the “L’Infinito” terrace will tell you a story; a cocktail, wine-tasting, or a sunset picnic in the estate’s loveliest vineyard Podere Carpaccio will create memories to treasure for years.
Sit by a cypress wood table, in the shade of ancient oak trees and look down on Florence, illuminated by the street lights and the stars.
