Villa il Paradisino is the perfect place for an authentic Tuscan escape. A 16th Century Historical Estate with beautifully renovated vacation apartments. We are also a working farm with 15 acres of ancient olive groves, luscious vineyards, fruit and vegetable orchards as well as romantic gardens to explore or sit back and watch the world go by. A family-run enterprise, it is nestled on the edge of Florence.
Only 6 km from the city centre it is the ideal location to explore both the historical sites of the city and the Tuscany’s beautiful countryside that surrounds it. You can choose to stay in a variety of luxurious apartments and rooms, each lovingly restored using traditional methods and furnished with elegant antiques. But the Villa is more than just a place to sleep, here you can have a unique experience in a Renaissance family home, enjoy the food and wine we produce and learn how to cook our family recipes.
At Villa Il Paradisino we want you to feel at home, to escape the hectic rhythms of modern life and share our family’s passions for the history, art, food and nature of this special region. We aim to provide the sense of luxury and exclusivity associated with a high end hotel paired with the personal touches of a family-run Villa.

I celebrated a special birthday together with friends and family at Villa Il Paradisino in the month of May. I had seen pictures and planned the details with the owners - the two sisters in the 6th generation at the villa, Costanza and Serena, who were truly remarkable during the planning process. So my expectations were high. Still they exceeded all my expectations by far. This is a real renaissance villa, the most beautiful place, still driven as a farm by the family who are the most loving and welcoming people. We had cooking class, Pizza party in the court-yard and a real Florentine dinner at the villa. They made my celebration a memory for life. I went there to see Florence and celebrate with friends, and I will come back for sure, because there is no other place I would rather stay than at Il Paradisino!
Best food I had in many years. Very very nice hosts too. And don't get me started on the "ambiente" …
The best experience you'll ever have! Me and my family stayed here for 1 week, we were so overwhelmed with the warm welcome we got from the family. I highly recommend that you stay here and take advantage of all the excursions and tours they have to offer! P.s. if you get a chance to cook with these amazing sisters do it, it will be the best food you eat in Italy! Loads of love
The location of the house is good and quiet.The neighborhood of the house is a market where fresh vegetables and fruit can be bought. And mr. Alberto is very nice, prepared a map for us and recommended restaurants.This is a great choice. It's a wonderful place, thank you for everything.
Costanza was so warm and welcoming. It was the perfect way to stay in Italy. Very convenient to the train station to go to Florence, but also very easy to get into hills surrounded Florence. This place is the best!
My wife and I spent one glorious day of cooking with Costanza as she taught us how to make a few traditional Tuscan dishes. When we arrived, Costanza greeted us and swept us out into the gardens where we received a full tour of the estate farm and the gardens where we harvested everything needed for the days cooking class. I am a gardener and fell in love with the estate and wished we could have stayed for a week. We were limited to just one day but hope to return and visit our friend Constanza in the years to come. Our vacation to Italy included Rome and all the other top places in Tuscany and by far this one day spent with Costanza at Villa Il Paradisino was the highlight of our trip.
Villa il Paradisino is uniquely well located. In Sesto Fiorentino, it is only 15 minutes by train from the historical centre of Florence, a stone’s throw from the Tuscan hills and within easy reach of Chianti, Lucca, Pisa and Tuscany’s other marvels. And should you wish to go further afield Rome, Venice and the Cinque Terre are all possible day trips. We are lucky to have excellent public transport links and should you wish, you can enjoy your stay here without the use of a car. Sesto Fiorentino has all the facilities you would want from a small Italian town; excellent cafes, gourmet restaurants, traditional trattorias, banks, pharmacies and doctor’s clinic. The Villa is like an oasis, once you step into the property you are transported into the Tuscany’s countryside and its rich agricultural past. We are just 20 minutes from Florence airport and within easy access of both Bologna and Pisa airports.
