Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
This old stone farmhouse has been carefully renovated without altering the original structure. It has stone fireplaces and terracotta floors, as well as wood beamed and cross vaulted ceilings. The villa is in a beautiful position surrounded by the greenery of the Tuscan countryside. It is situated halfway between Siena and Arezzo and is very convenient for visiting the most beautiful art cities of Tuscany by car or by train. Florence can be easily reached from the railway station in Bucine which is just 5 Km away.
The indoor areas of the house are very pleasantly furnished. Outside there are areas provided with tables, chairs and a barbecue for eating “al fresco”, shaded areas where guests can relax and a large 10 x 20 m swimming pool (max. depth 2.5 m) which is shared with Il Torrione. The two properties are around 100 meters apart but are completely independent from each other. Large groups can book both villas together with a 5% discount.
Many walking routes start in the vicinity of the villa which are perfect for guests who enjoy taking relaxing strolls in the peaceful Tuscan countryside.

The Tuscany region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
The Italian countryside is the place to enjoy an authentic experience, to appreciate the real old traditional flavours, or just to watch life go slowly and peacefully by. The Tuscan hills, historical villages, cellars where you can taste some of the regions greatest wines. The world famous towns of Florence and Siena, as well as many other beautiful, well loved Tuscan towns like Pisa, Volterra and Montelpulciano all within a short drive.
The Chianti countryside, where you will find many of Tuscany's most charming locations, such as San Gimignano, has been a popular destination for international travellers for many years and we are delighted to welcome them all to our portfolio.
