Next to the Ugolino golf course, close to Florence, yet in the countryside, Villa il Rough is not a Villa like the traditional Tuscan villas. It is a charming Villa, built by Tomaso Buzzi, a famous architect, companion of Gio Ponti. Located in the middle of a large garden, looking on the Ugolino golf course, with all the comforts, it has 3 bedrooms, a large living room, a large dining room, an office, a semi underground basement. It can accommodate 6 to 7 people.

Villa Il Rough, in the municipality of Impruneta, is just 10 km (7.5 miles) from Florence, on the road from Florence to Siena (Statale 222). It is regularly served by a bus, for those who do not want to use their car to go to Florence.

This Villa is not a traditional Tuscan Villa, but it is full of charm and light. It was built for the Duchess Visconti by Tomaso Buzzi, a famous architect who was a companion of the famous Gio Ponti, both of the avant-garde magazine “Domus”.Tomaso Buzzi built the “Scarzuola” a fantastic place, a stone “folly” located in the countryside of Montegabbione, in the province of Terni, and that can still be visited.

Villa il Rough is a very bright house, open to the outside, with a beautiful terrace, a shady veranda where you can relax or dine. It has three double bedrooms, all tastefully decorated, each with its own bathroom. In the living room a sofa and two comfortable chairs are installed in front of the fireplace. The dining room, adjoining the fully equipped kitchen, is round like a pigeon loft. Notice the thatched roof covering this part of the Villa! There is also an office, with a sofa, where one can watch television.

To the north, there is a view of the Apennine Mountains, to the east on a beautiful Renaissance villa, to the west on the vineyards and olive groves, and to the south on the Chianti hills and golf greens. The Ugolino golf course, 18 holes, was founded in 1933 and was designed by two specialized British architects, Blandford and Gannon. This golf has a club house and a swimming pool and accepts visitors for “green fees”.

Villa Il Rough can be rented for a minimum of two weeks or more. The house is indeed ideal for golfers who also want to spend vacations in Tuscany, but also for people wishing to spend a sabbatical year in Tuscany, or coming to work there for a year or two.
