rural haven after a day spent exploring cities and towns such as Florence, Arezzo, Siena and Montalcino, which are all within easy reach.Internally the accommodation is designed for easy-living:
the bright, colourful and comfortable rooms have large windows to make the most
of the natural light, and the four bedrooms, some of which have been decorated
by the artist owner, are all ensuite. A large balcony cum outdoor living area overlooks
the enchanting garden and is a wonderful place to relax with a drink, a
novel or your guide books while you plan the next day's sightseeing. Just a couple of miles down the road is Donnini, your
nearest village, which has a post office, a grocer's, a butcher's, an excellent
bakery, plus a bar, hairdressers, newsagent and ATM. You may like to visit the famous abbey of Vallombrosa, also close by.One advantage of a stay at this villa is that you can enjoy
