Historic Residence

Villa Cerbaiola is one of the prestigious villas of the Empoli hills. Because of its panoramic view the hill on which the villa is built was re-named “the Fiesole of the people of Empoli ” by the historian Bucchi in 1800.

The white walls of the villa, the beautiful windows and the elegance of the design are perfectly in tune with the typical Tuscan scenery.

You can see jasmine flowers, horse chestnuts, lavender, heather, gorse and wisteria.
