Villa
Villa Mondello is a stone construction, with frescoed interns and has been recently restored, having in total 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. It is in the Tuscan countryside a few km from Florence and Arezzo, as well as the countless sites closer by, and is thus apt for those preferring holidays centred around art and culture. Villa Mondello is also perfect for relaxing vacations, being in a safe and quiet place, with no acoustic pollution, with even the pool being built apart from the house, so as to ensure no noise can disturb.It's so beautiful stay here! The house was built more than 100 years ago. It was built by two Englishmen. Borgo All Collina was a popular resort in Tuscany, visited by many English people who loved the valley and felt it to be more beautiful and authentic than other...Villa Mondello is a stone construction, with frescoed interns and has been recently restored, having in total 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.

The house was built more than 100 years ago. It was built by two Englishmen. Borgo All Collina was a popular resort in Tuscany, visited by many English people who loved the valley and felt it to be more beautiful and authentic than other areas of Tuscany. Then came the war years and in 1922 Villa Mondello was bought out of love by the Mondello family, after whom the house was obviously named. It was bought out of love because the Mr. Mondello, a ship-owner by profession, had a great passion for poetry, defining himself an “amateur poet”, and often came to visit the grave of Cristoforo Landino, a great humanist and commentator of Dante's Comedy. He brought his Sicilian taste to the villa, rich and colourful. He ordered that every room be painted a different colour - the image of each to reflect the literature he knew so well.More

About the neighbourhood
As it stands prominently on the hill top at Borgo alla Collina, Villa Mondello enjoys extensive and expansive views in every direction. This small village has origins at least from the middle ages and probably much earlier, has experienced a glorious history - and a tragic one, for it was extensively bombed during the first world war. The village was a fiefdom under the Guidi Counts and was annexed as part of Florence. The nearby castle was presented as a gift to Cristoforo Landino by the city of Florence in recognition of his humanitarian work and his appreciation and support to the divine comedy.
Getting around
I suggest you something to visit in Casentino's Valley. A beautiful walk/ride of 8km to arrive in Romena castle and church with a beautiful landscape. Stia is so lolvey with the old tonw and the wool museum. Poppi is one of the 100 most beautiful town in Italy. La Verna and Camaloly monasteries are unforgettable!
