THE SPACE

The house is truly spectacular. It is composed of an enormous hall, that was made out of the main nave of the ancient church,and the surrounding rooms were made into a kitchen, a laundry room and five bedrooms, each one with a bathroom. The villa is perfect for families or large groups of people.

There is also a beautiful garden with a gazebo and barbecue, and a private swimming pool.

There are 11 beds for adults and 1 bed for kids.

Heating and air conditioning is provided, as well as bed linens, towels and free private parking.

FLOORS

The villa is on a drop, meaning that the terrain is at different levels.

When you enter you are at the ground floor, and when you go down the stairs you are getting into a half underground area where the windows have access to light.

When instead you go up to the 3 rooms, you will still be at ground level.

HALL

The great hall of the villa is airy, bright and big enough to host all the guests around the dinner table. There is also a fireplace and big sofas where guests can relax an enjoy a casual conversation. The place also has a traditional beamed ceiling that has been entirely reconstructed and gives the space a majestic but warm and welcoming feeling at the same time.

KTICHEN

The kitchen is lovely and clean and well equipped. Everything from pots, pans, cutlery, utensils, microwave to moka pot will be at your disposal so you can prepare various without any trouble. The most unique things about it is that it is that this kitchen was once an old sacristy.

BATHROOMS

Each bathroom has a shower, a toilet and a bidet.

BEDROOMS

Each of the five bedrooms has a bathroom, a TV set and air conditioning. They are furnished in different colors, giving each one a unique atmosphere.

The first bedroom, which is also the biggest one, is in orange and yellow tones. It is the brightest and has a double bed and a sofa/single bed. Big French doors lead onto a small terrace and then directly into the garden.

The second bedroom is in light purple and boasts a wonderful view on the surroundings of the villa.

The third bedroom is in blue tones and is located in the back of the villa. Even though it is a smaller one, it is very bright.

The fourth bedroom is decorated in a delicate blue hue and has the largest bathroom including both a shower and a comfortable bathtub. It is on the lower floor which gives this room the advantage of a bit more silence and privacy.

The fifth bedroom is in light yellow and has two single beds, which on request can be conjoined to form a double bed.

NOISE

The noise level is low. The house is quite private so noise level is not a concern!

The Tuscany region

Maybe, the most famous region of Italy, Tuscany will make you fall in love with its rolling hills, its stunning landscapes, its medieval cities, its festivals and its cooking and wine.

Villa San Donato is in Vallerano, a really small Tuscany village in the country of Murlo, only 17 kilometers south of Siena, on the border between the Val di Merse and the Val di Farma. Coming from either north or south take the SS223 Siena-Grosseto highway, exit at Fontazzi at the 51 kilometer mark, and continue for Casciano di Murlo. Once you arrive there, which is the closest town to the Villa (and where you should stock up on all your necessities), follow the indications for Vallerano or the Residenza d'Epoca (the sign with the characteristic yellow and black colors). After the small villages of Poggio Brucoli, Poggio Lodoli and Santo Stefano and just after the sign for Santo Stefano, do not enter in the village, but turn right onto the dirt road. Continue for approximately 2 kilometers and finally, on your left you will see Villa San Donato welcoming you.

Murlo

Villa San Donato is located in the open countryside and is just a few minutes from the the country village of Casciano, via a dirt road, through olive groves, vineyards and woods typical of the area.

Despite being independent and free on all sides, the villa is not completely isolated because the closest houses (belonging to the tiny village of Vallerano) are within walking distance.

This position allows you to have complete privacy in the home and in the pool, but without feeling too lonely!

The Villa is located on a nature trail route that stretches for many miles and intersects with many others, so it is quite common to see people who go hiking, go mountain biking or horseback riding and enjoy all that nature can offer (I can arrange the latter two activities).

At about 10km away from the Villa there is the natural and free hot springs of Petrolio Terme.

The precious sulphureous waters form small natural pools on the banks of the river Farma.

As you move away from the shore, the thermal water is mixed with that of the river and reaches ever lower temperatures.

Everyone can then find its ideal temperature!

Those who want something more than the "simple nature", can of course visit the SPA and enjoy massages and treatments.

Just five kilometers from Casciano di Murlo (Siena), the nearest village, where you will find all your basic necessities, like a supermarket, pharmacy, post office and bank.

Many interesting tourist sights like Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, the Abbey of Saint Galgano, even the mountain and the sea, and many others, can all be found within fifty kilometers maximum (about 35 miles), and less than an hour drive away.
