Villa Sparta, one of the most prestigious residences in the Florence area, dates back to 1400, and was owned by several of the most noble and important Florentine families, among these the Buonsegni, Bartolomeo Mori, Landi, up to Frescobaldi. In the early 1900s Giuseppe Castellucci renovated it in style: the villa was famous for hosting Romania’s Queen Elen in 1933, who returned for more than 30 years, during which the residence enjoyed its greatest splendor.
