Villa / 5 bedrooms / sleeps 10
Single family independent villa from the 1850’s situated in a charming village. Villa Maria is in the small and charming village of Renai, 3 km from Castelfiorentino. The villa is encircled by vineyards and olive groves.
The owner Vincenzo realised the restoration work completely by hand in order to safeguard the architectural integrity of the structure which was originally an old hayloft. He recycled old materials when ever possible taking a lot of time and care. Then he furnished it with Rustic antiques to further reinforce the villas timeless feel.
This is a perfect place to savour the country’s comforting peace and tranquillity, far away from stress and tension of the city you will completely relax and unwind. The dining room has been recuperated from what was once the stables and wagon room. The open fire place, originally used for shoeing horses is all fashioned from hand made bricks.
A wide corridor, leads us to the kitchen which is a faithful reconstruction of the old kitchens found in traditional Tuscan farmhouses, with its stone sink chiselled by hand. The 5 bedrooms are wide and airy, simple in their elegant order, graced with bright windows, each framing wonderful views of the undulating countryside. One bedroom on the ground floor has been designed with handicapped facilities. The 3 bathrooms, with bathtub or shower, are enriched by lively colours and Vietri’s hand painted tiles.
Accommodation: the villa is 210 square meters and can accommodate 10/12 persons in 5 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms. It extends on two levels:
On the ground floor, you will find a fully equipped kitchen, the dining room with an antique wood table (seats 12 people), sofa, armchairs, an original hearth composed by handmade bricks, a traditional sideboard , TV-sat, a large and very bright corridor, in which you can find Hi-Fi stereo and the one double bedroom. A bathroom with shower and a laundry with washing machine are available on this floor.
The stone stairway leads upstairs, the first floor, which has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one with shower and one with tub). One double bedroom, enriched by a picture of Michelangelo like bed head, an old English wardrobe with a mirror, an antique chest of drawers, 2 bedside tables and a sofa.
One twin bedroom from which you can admire starry sky, with a very pretty writing desk, a chair, a hand-painted wardrobe and 2 bedside tables. Another double bedroom with brought iron bed head, a nice wardrobe, a chest of drawers, a large mirror and a pretty chair, 2 bedside tables and a sofa. And a very romantic double/twin bedroom, that has a sunny picture like bed head, a sofa, a wardrobe and 2 bedside tables from the 19th century.
