From the manager

The property offers breathtaking views southwards across the city plain as far as Pistoia, where the Duomo, on a clear day, is visible in the distance. Ideal for visiting Florence by short train journey!

This spacious five bedroom villa, dating back to the late 18th century, is built on three levels, and has recently been restored but retains many original features including antique furnishings, artwork and numerous family heirlooms. Fine old beams and rafters, original polished parquet floors, terracotta tiled floors, French arched windows, and vaulted ceilings are all part of the charm as are the two hand painted bedrooms which date back to 1800's.

The five bedrooms are all beautifully furnished, and the bathrooms are spacious, tasteful and pristine. With 3 bedrooms on one floor and 2 on another, this villa is perfect for two families, giving each an element of privacy.

The living area is spacious, consisting of living/dining room, spacious kitchen/diner, and study all of which are light, airy and very well furnished

The large terrace overlooking the swimming pool and gardens is accessible from the living room and study via French windows and offers a wonderful spot for enjoying the vista while sipping pre dinner drinks.....

The property is set in circa 4 hectares , with olive trees, vineyard and old oak woods. Guests have at their disposal large green spaces and a football field which is let to grass.

Fantastically located for exploring should one be able to tear oneself away from the Villa.....

The owner, his wife, and grown up son live next door and are on hand to help with anything required. They have their own gardens and full privacy is respected.

The house is situated on 3 floors:

Hallway leading to very large living/dining room with original fireplace, parquet flooring and arched French windows leading out to terrace. SAT TV, CD player and DVD player

Two light and airy twin bedrooms, one with beamed, and one with vaulted ceiling, one overlooking the gardens and pool and the other overlooking the wooded river valley
