Villa | 8 bedrooms | sleeps 18
A thoughtful restoration. Outside geraniums, roses and shady spots. Inside, beams and terracotta. Great fun for sociable families
Beautiful vistas of sunflowers unfold, until a small hamlet comes into view: welcome to Villa Montagna and the farmhouse complex of Il Poggio alle Ville.
The moment you arrive you know you've chosen well. There's an old cart full of bright geraniums under the trees, roses clambering stone walls and a central green on which guests relax in sun or shade. It is an excellent and thoughtful restoration: the reception in the haybarn, the laundry in the shed, the apartments in the outbuildings, and the consecrated chapel.
Step in to find venerable old beams and terracotta floors, white arches and narrow steps, floral bedcovers and snowy towels, perhaps an iron bedstead, a Tuscan fireplace or a picture of the Madonna on the wall. The friendly owners live nearby so there's always someone to look after you (and bottle the tomatoes and make the jams, all for sale along with the olive oil).
There's space to roam and it's great for sociable families, with football field, ping-pong and big pool.
A short drive up the hill is the huge old stone villa for 18, blessed with views and an elegant pool. Heaps of comfort and charm.
