Villa | 10 bedrooms | sleeps 20

On the ground floor there is an elegant drawing room, formerly a ballroom, whose vaulted ceiling and walls are covered with incredible 'trompe l'oeuil' paintings of exotic birds, flowers and plants, whilst the walls are wood panelled. The furniture ranges from antique (18th century) to 20th century. Two large French doors open into the parkland, an open space to sit and relax under the Tuscan sun.

The ground floor also comprises a junior suite for two people with large windows overlooking the park and a terracotta arch housing a library. Nearby is a bathroom with hand-made tiles from Amalfi. On this same level is a majestic dining hall, boasting what is said to be the largest sit-in fireplace in Tuscany. The dining tables seat up to 20 people, and the impression is one of dining in a large medieval banqueting hall. Other special features of this dining hall are a 16th century Siennese marble sink, original antique tiled floors and antique furniture. Beyond the dining hall is a small kitchen with modern equipment and professional cooking facilities, sufficient for 20 people or more. A beautiful internal courtyard is accessed from outside the dining hall. This courtyard has its own well and a covered area or loggia, and can be used for outdoor dining in fine weather. Outside, there is also a fantastic swimming pool (14 x 7 metres).

A gallery of paintings leads to an old stairway going up to the first floor. There are five bedrooms located on this floor, all characterized by tall windows, high ceilings and plenty of light. With views of Siena in the distance, and their antique furniture, all the bedrooms have unique features. The first one is famous for its frescoes representing the "Cantico delle Creature" di San Francesco, painted by Dario Neri. This double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower. Further along the gallery, the master bedroom boasts a magnificent Murano glass chandelier, frescoes of angels on the ceiling and a magnificent 17th century Siennese painting. Its en-suite bathroom has a bathtub. A third bedroom, called Cor-sanum, has three single four-poster beds, and an en-suite bathroom with shower. The fourth bedroom has two single beds and an open free-standing antique bathtub and sink inside the room. The final bedroom on this floor has a double bed, with a television and a small kitchenette. A bathroom with shower is shared between these last two rooms.

On the second floor are a further four bedrooms, set in a more rustic ambience than the floor below. A double bedroom with its terra cotta floors and wooden beamed ceilings has spectacular views of distant Siena. Its bathroom with shower is on the other side of the corridor. The next bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and a new en-suite bathroom with shower. A third bedroom has two twin beds and an en-suite bathroom with shower. A fully-equipped and colourful kitchen with washing machine separates the third and fourth bedrooms. This fourth bedroom has a charming low-beamed ceiling, two twin beds, television and en-suite bathroom with shower and tub, featuring painted 'trompe l'oeuil' tiles.
