The villa itself is up a gentle slope, part of which has wide stone steps and part is a sloped path, from the pool area. It's not possible to see the house from the pool area. Adine is completely independent and private although it is attached to other houses. Once at the top of the slope from the pool you cross a small gravel track which provides access to the hamlet, not only for the guests of Adine but also for the other hamlet occupants. From here there is either direct access into the lower part of the house or you can follow the track around the house to the little gravelled square and main entrance.
To enter the villa from the square you cross a wonderfully large and spacious loggia furnished on one side with a comfortable angle sofa. On the other side is a table with 8 chairs. The loggia is paved with the traditional terracotta tiles and has a tiled and beamed ceiling. Through an arched double wooden door you enter the villa. You find yourself in a large and spacious room with vaulted terracotta ceilings, typical of the traditional Tuscan farmhouses. The room is divided in two by a short wall. The first part of the room is a dining room, furnished with a lovely large wooden table that can comfortably seat 10-12 people.
Through an archway into the next part of the room, there is a comfortable lounge with seating for 7 people and an open fireplace. The room is also furnished with a large flat screen TV with a decoder and DVD player.
From this room there is a door providing access to a landing from which stairs lead up and down, you take the 10 stairs to the first floor, there is a large landing where there are two high quality bathrooms, one is very spacious with a beautiful free standing bathtub with hand held shower. The other is with a shower surrounded by crystal doors, passing into another room straight ahead there is another landing that once was the entrance hall of the villa, there is a wooden door that leads to external stairs to access the gardens.
Off this landing there is a double bedroom with a high antique bed frame. This bedroom is quite narrow, although quiet long and comfortable. The wardrobe for this bedroom is found on the landing. In the room is a chest of draws and arm chair. The window looks out onto pretty views of the Chianti.
From the landing area with the bathrooms the master bedroom is accessed up 7 steps. This spacious and airy room has a high, large double bed and very high ceilings. To one side is a big wardrobe and below the window is a two-seater sofa. From the window there are fantastic views of the Tuscan hills.
The twin room is the highest part of the villa. It's located a further 10 steps up from the master bedroom. It has a pitched oak and terracotta ceiling, the lowest part is approximately 2 meters high. The room is furnished with an armchair and chest of draws with built in wardrobe. From the window there are great views of the Chianti and down to the pool.
From the main living room leading down 9 steps to the lower floor of the villa you find a second dining area which is furnished with a large table that seats 8-10 people. The room has a lovely homely feeling and is graced by a large characteristic, central arch of terracotta. Also in this room is a double sofa, open fireplace and flat screen TV. To one side up 3 steps there is access to a laundry with washing machine and drier, and a large bathroom with luxury shower.
To one end of the lower floor is a large arched entrance door, from the large glass doors you can see the excellent views of the Tuscan countryside that surrounds you.
