Escape for One Week in a Historical Villa close to Florence.

As soon as I entered Villa Pepi, it was as if, by magic, I was in Luca Guadagnino’s Academy Award Nominee last film, running for 4 awards.

Like that scene from Call Me by Your Name, as Oliver and Elio get to know each other better while seated by the pool in the countryside, their muscles betraying an increasing sexual tension. Or like that bathroom with blue tiles between the two boys’ rooms. Or the precious interiors of an historical typical Italian villa, a place to hang out and play the piano when it’s too hot outside.

The unexpectedly similar elements of two historical buildings in the Italian countryside, both about a life and holiday style where the care for details gives a total immersion.

Staying in a historical villa in Tuscany is an experience you appreciate morning after morning, waking up there where the birds sing and hens chitchat.

Villa Pepi, also known as Vigliano, was built at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Located on a hill a few miles from Florence, in the Rignano county. The seven bedrooms can host many friends. The entire villa can be booked on a weekly basis, Saturday to Saturday.

In the occasion of the Unique Celebration Week, between 12th to 19th of May 2018, one or more rooms could be exceptionally booked. The 450th anniversary of its construction and the tenth of its restoration of Villa Pepi will be duly celebrated.

The idea of this unique event is enhanced with lots of activities related to the discover of the Tuscan land, yoga and its wellbeing, the art of floral composition. A half board formula, with breakfast and dinner for about 200 Euros a day per room.
