Villa Piacere, also know as Napoleon's villa as the great Emperor reputedly stayed here on his way to crown his brother King of Italians.... That aside, the Villa is a lovely home for friends and families looking for an authentic, private and spacious home in Tuscany.

The villa is set along a sun soaked hill where the garden extends into pretty olive groves and vineyards. From this vantage point guests are able to fully appreciate the tranquil surroundings and take advantage of the magnificent views of valley of Chio and beyond totally surrounded by natural beauty - and calm.....

The villa has been carefully restored and includes many original features from the old wooden ceilings to terra-cotta floors which impart a rustic warmth. The large and bright bedrooms on the main and first floor each have a bathroom en suite. The bedrooms on the second floor share one bathroom.

From the living room there is access to the covered terrace with a barbecue, which invites to al fresco dining. Just a few steps through the garden there is the pool. From here one enjoys fantastic views which extend to Tuscany's highest mountain - Monte Amiata . Next to the pool there is a small garden house with two beds and a shower.

The lovely swimming pool and patios are a real oasis of peace, furnished with sun loungers and umbrellas. The garden is well stocked with many scented plants and terra-cotta pots stuffed with colourful summer plantings . There is a barbecue along with dining furniture making these ideal spots for al fresco meals or just a romantic evening.

From a practical point of view the villa has most things to make the perfect vacation including a fully fitted kitchen including cooer etc, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, Satellite TV etc

A private chef is also available for either lunch or dinner. She can prepare an amazing feast for you to celebrate - being in Tuscany or, something even more special.

"Amazing view and the place to recover from the hustle n bustle of life"

House that has been lovingly restored by the owners. Great outdoor space for entertainment and just to chill out with one's family. The caretaker family was very helpful. The main town Castiglion Fiorentino only 20 mins away... great base to tour Tuscany. Cortona is round the corner, Florence is an hour's drive. Sienna also an hour away.

"The most idyllic view in Tuscany"

I have stayed in lots of different villas in Tuscany but none come close to the Villa Placere. The villa is exquisitely decorated and with enough space to cater to everyone's needs. The pool is easily accessible both through the sitting room and the kitchen, via a beautifully shaded patio, perfect for lazy lunches or late dinners. The swimming pool itself was a pleasure to swim in and getting out with a view of the entire valley was unrivalled. Overall, I couldn't recommend it more highly.
