Villa | 9 bedrooms | sleeps 18
This ancient stone building dates back to 1700 and is situated in a small country village along the road linking Bucine to the beautiful medieval town of Civitella Val di Chiana. The villa is particularly suitable for hosting large groups whilst also offering guests a high level of privacy since all the bedrooms are independent. The pleasantly furnished indoors areas are distributed over three floors. Outside there is a beautiful garden with a table and chairs for relaxing and eating “al fresco”. A little bit higher up is the swimming pool (9 x 10 m; depth 1.5 m) for the exclusive use of guests, and a gazebo.
The property is situated halfway between Siena and Arezzo and is very convenient for visiting the wonderful 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.
Many walking routes start in the vicinity of the villa which are perfect for guests who enjoy strolling in the peaceful countryside. There is a food shop and restaurant just 500 meters away in the small village of Badia Agnano. Bucine has a variety of different stores. On request it is possible to organize suppers, lunches and cookery courses focusing on Tuscan cuisine, as well as visits to the local wineries to taste their products, or to the outlet stores of many famous Italian high fashion brands such as Prada.

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.
