Description from owner

Description

This imposing two-storey villa is set in stunning grounds, which have the quality of a park. Here you can feel sheltered and secluded in each separate area, including that of the pool. The spaciousness of both the exterior and interior easily accommodates a large group. Modern comforts have been succesfully integrated with traditional, antique-style furnishings and original Tuscan architectural features, dating back to the XVIII century.

The rooms preserve many of the design elements typical of the Tuscan rustic style, such as wood-beamed ceilings; stone floors; white or colour washed walls; glass fronted dressers; dark wood furniture and wood-burning fireplaces. Some of the bedrooms even feature decorative wrought-iron bedsteads with a net-curtain canopy above the bedhead, so characteristic of past times in this region. Looking out on to the garden, a generous-sized stone terrace, shaded by a loggia-roof, makes the ideal spot to relax and dine together at the 18/20-seater table.

Looking out on to the garden, a generous-sized stone terrace, shaded by a loggia-roof, makes the ideal spot to relax and dine together at the 18/20-seater table. The history of the location is also reflected in its many tall, mature trees, such as the evergreen holm-oaks and pines and the sweet-scented flowering lime trees that dot the manicured lawns and grace the gravelled forecourt.

Accommodation: At ground-floor level you step directly into a small sitting-room, with Sat.TV and working fireplace. This leads open-plan into a study, from where glass doors open into the entrance hallway. Issuing from here is the dining-room, with 13-seater table, Sat.TV and two attractive, glass-fronted cabinets let into the wall. You proceed into the fully equipped kitchen and adjoining laundry room. Here French doors take you out to a little gravelled terrace at the rear of the property, from where Cortona is visible. There is also a downstairs bathroom with shower.

Stairs lead up to the top floor, which comprises the following rooms: A bathroom with bathtub, shower and all modern fittings. A suite, consisting of sitting-room area with sofa, wardrobe, dressing-table and bookshelves, from where a few steps lead up to a double-bedded room. The floors are natural-wood parquet. A double bedroom, with wrought-iron bedframe and natural-wood parquet floors. A twin-bedded room. Another double bedroom, with wrought-iron bedframe and ensuite bathroom with large shower cubicle. Another double bedroom, with wood-framed bed and round, net-curtain canopy above the bedhead; also with ensuite bathroom with shower cubicle.

There are mosquito-blinds at all the windows and central-heating throughout.

Garden and Swimming pool: From a quiet country road, you turn through the entrance gates and proceed along the Cypress-lined driveway, which passes between lawns. In front of the cream-washed villa with its green shutters is an informal gravelled parking area, where an ancient covered well still stands. Lemon trees and geraniums in large terracotta pots add bright splashes of colour, as do an exotic pomegranite tree with its vivid red blooms and the flowering wisteria trailing over the loggia. The grounds also contain a ping-pong table and a cosy gazebo with garden furniture.

Set well out of sight of the house in its own secluded lawn area, separated by high hedges from the main garden, lies the oval swimming pool (5 x 10 meters and 1,5 meters max deep). To one side, raised flowerbeds, planted with floribunda roses, lavender, rosemary and oleander bushes, form a protective screen. At the far end, a border of young Cypress trees looks out over the spectacular backdrop of the unspoilt Val di Chiana countryside, with Montepulciano perched on its hilltop in the distance. This suntrap location is fully equipped with sunloungers and sunshades, as well as a round jacuzzi pool under the shade of one poolside gazebo.

The whole area is securely fenced-in and garden lights serve to illuminate the grounds and poolside at night, if required.

“A true TUSCAN experience. Better than words can describe.”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2015

It is quite a challenge to put into words a description of this place, the family and the amazing time we had at Vila Papale. The house and the entire property has so much history and character making this place a unforgettable experience. The gardens have a park like feeling, amazing trees, great pool and perfect views. We had barbecues and made bread and pizza in the wood oven in the back terrace almost every night during the stay. We were welcomed by the owners who also left a cake and a bottle of house wine for us in the kitchen. The INTUSCANY team that handled the booking was incredibly professional and we highly recommend them. All in all it comes to this > if you are looking for THE true tuscan experience, than this is surely the place to stay.
