This stunning 17 th century villa is the result of skilful architectural renovation work and has been exquisitely furnished in period style, with eye-catching touches of luxury in its Venetian glass chandeliers, gold-framed mirrors and brocade soft-furnishings. These authentic features combine with the most modern of fittings and appliances to provide its guests with both style and comfort. Set in extensive parkland containing centuries-old trees, this is undoubtedly an idyllic spot to savour the unspoilt tranquillity of the Tuscan countryside.
Open all year round, centrally heated throughout and providing Satellite TV, the property extends over two floors and retains many details of traditional Tuscan interiors: such as the terracotta-tiled floors and ceilings, with exposed wooden beams; open-stonework walls; large, wood-burning fireplaces; glass-fronted dressers; and wrought-iron bedsteads.
A variety of opportunities invite you to al fresco dining, sunbathing and outdoor relaxation at different levels in the grounds, not only poolside, but also under the shady raised loggia (covered terrace) directly in front of the house. This in turn leads up to a higher-level, railed-in grass terrace, which commands spectacular views out over the surrounding wooded hills. These tempting suntraps are all equipped with sunshades and comfortable cane furniture, just right for those leisurely moments.
Accommodation: the holiday villa comprises 6 bedrooms with double beds, each with modern, fitted ensuite bathroom. The seating and dining areas, plus three separate bathrooms, are on the lower level. Each bathroom has shower and hairdryer.
The professional kitchen is stylishly furnished and decorated, making striking use of contrasting colours on the walls and Persian rugs on the floors, as elsewhere in the building. Upon advanced request the owner can organize for a cook to prepare for you traditional dishes for lunch, dinner or even breakfast.
Garden and Swimming pool: owing to its secluded, elevated position, this villa enjoys superb views over the surrounding hills, whose woodlands extend right up to the edge of the terraces, with no other property in sight. The lawn and paved loggias are dotted with large earthenware urns and ceramic pots full of bright petunias and geraniums.
The delightful pool (8 x 16 meters, from 1.2 to 2 meters deep) area is set apart at a short walking distance on a lower, fenced-in terrace, again encircled by mature trees and vegetation, which do not, however, restrict the breathtaking views. A paved pool surround, broadening into a spacious lawn, offers tables, chairs, sunshades and loungers. Ping- pong, bocce court and chess are also available. At the far end, a wooden canopy shades the barbeque section, fully equipped for those open-air feasts!
