Villa Beata A is a splendid apartment that covers the entire top floor of an ancient country manor made of stone. It sleeps 12 people. From Villa Beata A you will enjoy a charming view of the Tuscan countryside and of the hills. Villa Beata A is 350 square meters (3770 square feet). It features a private swimming pool, a private garden and winter heating.

You will be roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) from Rapolano Terme, where you will find restaurants, the shops and the stop for the local bus.

Villa Beata A is located on the first floor of an ancient villa. You will reach it from the parking area going up a short walkway that cuts through the garden.

To stay at Villa Beata A you will need a car. You will be able to park it on the premises, in a reserved parking space.

Villa Beata A is an apartment located on the top floor of the seventeenth century villa, which is the main building of the country estate.  As you approach the villa, you will pass through a beautiful antique gate, and proceed along a characteristic Tuscan avenue bordered on both sides by tall, slender cypress trees. This tree-lined avenue will lead you towards the principal façade of the villa. You will find yourself in front of a square stone building, the central façade of which is refined by two open arched loggias. The entryway is dominated by the stone-carved coat of arms of the noble family of the estate.

Between you and the villa, there stretches a large green lawn, marked by symmetrical pathways and decorated with large terracotta urns in which perfumed lemon shrubs have been cultivated.

You will find yourself before a harmonious example of Tuscan architecture of the 1600s, still intact for our enjoyment today. Inside the villa, you will find elegant and spacious rooms.

The apartment has six bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, positioned around a great hall.

The center of the villa is a Great Hall, its ceiling decorated with a large family crest. In this room, you will find an imposing stone fireplace and a large table. From this room, you will be able to step onto a beautiful arched “loggiato” or open gallery, from which you can enjoy an expansive view of the surrounding hills.

At the villa there is also a small, romantic  seventeenth-century chapel, which you may also visit, as well as a second private pool for your exclusive use. 

Villa Beata A is one of the holiday homes available in a small complex. Please find a general description of the complex below, and please scroll further down for a description of Villa Beata A.

You will spend your vacation in an ancient, typical Tuscan farming village, near the summit of a small hill, 350 meters (roughly 1150 feet) above sea level. The hamlet consists of six stone buildings, distributed around a large villa dating back to the 1600s. Today, though, they have been renovated into five apartments, also used for vacation rentals.

The villa and the surrounding land, as far as you can see, have belonged for centuries to an ancient family of Tuscan Counts, and are still part of a single large agricultural estate.

All around you, you will see land planted with rows of grapevines, alternating with areas that have been cultivated with olive trees. In the distance, the foliage of a small oak forest interrupts the cultivated landscape.

And it is in this peaceful setting that you will spend your vacation! As you stretch out in the sunshine, your view scans across an uninterrupted horizon of gentle hills covered with vegetation, or comes to rest on the simple and elegant architecture of the complex.

The small hamlet is at the center of a large agricultural estate, of 300 hectares (about 740 acres), and during your stay at the complex you will be guests of this estate. The estate produces a famous wine and olive oil, and you will be able to acquire these products, among others, during your stay. Upon request, you can also visit the winery of the estate.

The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.

Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.

The region was populated first by the Etruscans on the 7th century BC, and about 500 years later by the Romans.

The words Humanism and Renaissance evoke Tuscany, as immediately as Pope evokes Rome: just think that between the fourteenth and the sixteenth century, both these ages were born here. The entire region attained a very important artistic role.

If you are keen on art and nature… well you’re definitely in the right place! ;-)

Indeed the fathers of Italian painting, architecture and sculpture lived in this beautiful towns: such as Cimabue, Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. This is the reason why the entire region is rich in museums where thousands of amazing works are kept. You’ll be impressed by the majesty of the many ancient palaces (for examples “Palazzo Vecchio”, “Palazzo Pitti”, “Palazzo Medici”), monasteries and villas that are springing up all over the Tuscany.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.

The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.

What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.

The Apuan Alps are a monumental work of the nature. They consist in some of the highest peaks in the region: This regional park sets up the chance for those who want to practice trekking, cycling, horse riding or simply walking to enjoy this beautiful landscape.

Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.

Another great attraction of this region is the archipelago. The largest island is Elba: more than one hundred kilometers of coast.

Curiously enough, since the Etruscans introduced the use of fresh herbs, the Tuscan cooking is still based on vegetable dishes, bread-based soups, meats perfumed with sage, rosemary, and thyme. Moreover the secret of its success is the good care and the devotion to guarantee the quality of the products of the land... crostini of chicken liver, soups, tortelli with Bolognese sauce, “pappardelle” with hare sauce or with boar sauce, boar hunter style, fillet of beef, salted cod with tomato sauce, ricciarelli, cantucci, Tuscan salt-less bread… We’re sure your mouth is already watering!

Asciano

Asciano is a marvellous town under the municipality of Siena, in the Tuscany region. The town is located just between the River Ombrone and the Torrent Copra, at the center of Crete Senesi: a particular and very suggestive hill area on the south-eastern side of Siena, almost bare of vegetation, but plenty of alternating coves and “biancane” (typical clayey, porous and light-coloured soil), that seem to create a moonscape. From the Middle Age, this area was known as “Deserto di Accona” where today, thanks to some important irrigation works, it is possible the cultivation of wheat and sunflowers.

Asciano has Etruscan and Roman origins: you will in fact be able to admire a fascinating Etruscan necropolis, dated back at the V century BC and the remains of Roman baths. The town used to be contended between Siena and Florence in the Battle of Montaperti, until 1285, when it was conquered by Siena and surrounded by boundary walls in 1351, in order to protect it from further invasions.

You cannot miss the Romanesque collegiate church of St Agata, which is the most important church in Asciano. It dates back at XII-XIX century and it's composed by a nave with apsis transept, covered by cross vaults. On the left you will find the marvellous Lombard bell-tower. The façade is divided into three parts by ogive arches. The church reveals inside, two masterpieces, two sixteenth century frescos: a Madonna with the Infant Jesus, the Archangel Michael and the donor, made by disciples of Sodoma; and the Pietà, maybe attributable to Riccio.

Beside the Collegiate Church of St Agata there is the Museum of Holy Art, an exhibition of works dated at XIV and XV centuries, made by painters of the Sienese school. The Archaeological Museum contains remains from a number of tombs of the Poggio Pinci cemetery.

Moving to the South, a large Benedictine monastery overlooks the hill of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, which is famous for being the original village for the locals: the Olivetans. The monastery was named Monte Oliveto Maggiore to distinguish it from successive foundations at Florence, San Gimignano, Naples and elsewhere. Nowadays, It is still the mother house of the order or congregation.

Talking about events and local culture, we have to remind every tourist to enjoy and fully live the Ascianese September, which is when the town gets alive thanks to variegate program of typical markets, parties and concerts.

There is a famous exhibition of clay pots which take place every second Sunday of the month in the old centre of the town. You will find not only pots, but also organic food and wine from the local area as well as handicrafts.
