Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
This villa is an elegant 18th century mansion near Siena in the Chianti wine region, perfect for visiting Tuscany and relaxing by the pool during your holidays in Italy. The villa has a vantage position on a hill above the old town of Staggia Senese. From the terrace of the villa you can actually admire the beautiful medieval castle walls that surround the village of Monteriggioni. The town still preserves most of its 13th century-era buildings and is a unique example of a medieval Tuscan town.
Its position in the center of Tuscany, just a few km from the highway Firenze-Siena and near the historic intersection between the Via Cassia and Via Francigena, is a perfect location from which to enjoy all of Tuscany, from following wine roads, touring cultural and artistic sites and enjoying good Tuscan cuisine in the many traditional villages of the area.
The villa was originally used by noble families as the manor home to which to escape to the countryside during the hottest months of summer. The villa has been restaured and today it is an ideal place to enjoy a pleasant and exclusive stay under the Tuscan sun and from which to visit the most important historical and cultural cities of the area.
The villa belongs to the same family for several generations and is now managed by the young owner and his girlfriend who take care of their guests with attention and respect in a friendly and genuine family atmosphere.
The villa is surrounded by a fully fenced park of 1000 m2. On the large area in front of the villa is a beautiful gazebo suitable for outdoor dining. To the sides of the villa, guests can enjoy relaxing on the elegant terrace where the lemon trees are housed. In a secluded area to the back of the villa, nestled among cypress and olive trees, is the swimming pool surrounded by a large green lawn.
Ground floor: On the right side of the large entrance is a wide, bright living room which is the largest and oldest section of the house (120 m2). Characterized by its great vaults, the living room is enhanced by a unique fireplace in green marble and is furnished with luxurious and antique furniture. From here, a glass door leads outside to the sunny terrace where several lemon plants are housed.
On the left side of the entrance, you'll find an elegant well-lit dining room with three windows overlooking the Villa's gardens. From the dining room you can access the kitchen, which has been completely renovated and is composed of a wide marble counter-top which allows very comfortable cooking. The kitchen has an independent service entrance behind the villa.
First floor: Sleeping area, fully equipped with air conditioning. The staircase that rises from the ground floor opens onto a grand living room with access to a balcony from which you can enjoy an exclusive view of Monteriggioni. This living room leads to the first of three double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom. A large and bright hallway leads to the other three bedrooms, two twin bedrooms with shared bathroom and one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Each bedroom has been furnished with attention to details and colors, retaining the charm of a refined atmosphere.
There is also a second floor, with separate access, that is the apartment of the caretaker who, with absolute discretion, will always be available for any requirement. We want to underline that, where not otherwise indicated, all internal and external spaces are at the exclusive disposal of the guests.
The villa and its park are suitable for small ceremonies and celebrations such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and other events.
