Tucked away in a lesser known part of Tuscany, undiscovered by crowds of tourists, Villa Jasmine, on the outskirts of the medieval village of Montelopio, is idyllically located in an exceptionally beautiful, lush and varied landscape dotted with olive groves, vines, fields of wheat and sunflowers and woodlands abounding in wild boars, porcupines, foxes and deer.

Situated where the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Florence meet, the Villa is just a short distance from the well preserved historical towns of San Gimignano and Volterra.

Even the village of Montelopio, about 1 km from the Villa, boasts an ancient history. The Etruscans, Longobards, the seafaring Republic of Pisa, the Templars and the noble families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany have all left their traces as they passed through or settled, attracted by this “prosperous hill”.

Villa Jasmine is a traditional 1800 Tuscan farmhouse converted with great attention to detail by the proprietors, the Ruatti family. The original features such as the terra cotta flooring, chestnut wooden beams and stone walls enhance the modern restoration to provide a comfortable environment.

The Villa comprised of two floors measures 250 sq.m and hosts up to 11 persons.

Further details indoors

On the ground floor there is:

A fully equipped built- in kitchen with a full range of modern appliances and utility cupboard, a furnished living room with a large table, sofas, armchairs and satellite TV, a spacious lounge enhanced by an original rustic fireplace surrounded by sofas, armchairs and satellite TV; a bathroom equipped for the disabled; a double bedroom (or twin beds) with satellite TV and en suite bathroom with shower.

A stone and wrought iron staircase leads to the first floor and the bedrooms:

2 doubles (or twin beds) (which can be transformed into triples ), 1 double bedroom ( a single bed can be added in this room) each with an en suite bathroom with shower, an open fireplace, satellite TV and a built- in cupboard. A spiral staircase leads to the “dovecote”, a tower which looms from the centre of the roof converted into a comfortable lounge offering a 360° panoramic view of the hilly landscape.

The kitchen and living room on the ground floor open out to a porch sheltered by a wrought iron pergola where you can enjoy your meals or simply relax on comfortable sofas.

The Villa has under-floor central heating and air conditioning throughout which can be adjusted as required in every room plus a central sound system with concealed speakers in every room, alarm, safe and telephone.

Further details outdoors

The grounds provide ample leisure facilities: there is a small rustic style hut open on 3 sides equipped for preparing meals and a barbecue or simply to relax, a 15m x 5m swimming pool with a depth from 40cm to 150 cm. with Roman spa steps leading into the pool and a hydro-massage zone: just push the button to release the water jets for a soothing lower back and neck massage. Three sides of the pool are decorated with flowers and the fourth with a small waterfall where the water is only 40 cm in depth and therefore ideal for children; a solarium with sun beds, chairs and small tables for those who prefer to bask in the sunshine; a wrought iron sheltered gazebo with sofas and armchairs for those who prefer the shade.

The Villa is surrounded by a spacious 5.000 m garden, landscaped with traditional Tuscan flora, enclosed by an electric fence and Mediterranean shrub hedges to ensure total privacy and a sheltered carpark.

Although the Villa is situated in the open countryside there is a restaurant nearby ( just 800 m ) which you could walk to and savour traditional Tuscan cuisine. More restaurants, a few shops, cafés, a bank, a post office, a chemist and a doctor are a few km away and at Peccioli there is a supermarket and interesting shops.
