Villa | 10 bedrooms | sleeps 20
Villa Carpino is an exclusive elegant villa renovated from an old farmhouse and its two barns, now transformed into a luxury villa with two annexes where everything has been perfectly conceived to make your holidays just perfect.
It is located in the heart of the charming Tuscan countryside in the romantic Valdambra halfway between Arezzo and Siena. From its incredible hilltop position surrounded by vineyards and olive groves it offers unobstructed views of the valley below and of the neighbouring wooded hills.
The villa has been restored to the highest standards preserving the ancient characteristics such as terracotta floors, wooden beamed ceilings and stone walls. Everything is perfectly melted with all the modern comforts included the wi-fi internet connexion and the underfloor heating or cooling system throughout. All the bedrooms are tastefully furnished and have HD TV sat and ensuite private bathrooms with shower.
One of the annexes also hosts a Wellness Center with a large Jacuzzi heated pool and a Sauna to make your stay unforgettable and an utmost relaxing experience to recuperate from the stress of your everyday life.

Villa Carpino can be rented in two solutions, for groups of 14 or 20 persons. This can be obtained by renting only the main villa or adding the annexe. The villa extends over two floors:
On the ground floor you can find a spacious dining room with a big table to accommodate comfortably all the guests and a large living room with a fireplace, sofas and TV sat.
