Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Beautiful farmhouse situated 12 km from Montalcino, in the heart of the production area of the prestigious wine of the same name in the vicinity of the castle of Argiano.
Entirely renovated just a few years ago, it is built in the form of a U around a typical courtyard where, beneath a veranda covered by an ancient Isabella grape vine, guests have at their disposal a spacious area furnished for dining in the open air. The large garden overlooking the vineyards has tall trees, shady areas for relaxation and a fine 7x14 m swimming pool for guests' exclusive use.
The interior is furnished with antique pieces characteristic of the area, and embellished with precious paintings and the most tasteful upholstery. The couple who act as caretakers and also deal with the daily cleaning, live in an external apartment and on request are also willing to prepare breakfast or other meals and take care of the laundry. The main kitchen is superbly equipped with ovens, microwave, fridges and barbecue, also perfect for cookery courses. The laundry is provided with washing machine and dryer. All the bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans. Other amenities of the villa include an internet connection, satellite TV and stereo with CD player.

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.
