Villa / 3 bedrooms / sleeps 6
It is the most photographed house in the area, a symbol of the Tuscany countryside, featured on many postcards and calendars simply because it has maintained the charm of the old farmhouse and the surrounding fields, without any new buildings as far as the eye can see.
Villa Andrea is located only 500 mt from Pienza, in the open Tuscan countryside. You don't find artificial lawns here or ornamental trees, but just naturally shaded areas and well kept country fields. Rooms have been renovated respecting the original layout of the villa and also maintain the original old cotto floor.
Accommodation: The property is centrally heated throughout and its ground floor, once used to accommodate the farm animals, now houses only the laundry room and the cellars. As in the past centuries, the accommodation is located solely on the upper floor, accessed by an external flight of stone stairs with a porch at the top.
From here, you enter directly the living room with an open fireplace and a sofa to relax and watch the Tv which has the satellite and DVD player or enjoy reading a book. On the left you access to a large dining room with 6/8 seats wooden table. In another room is a kitchenette, fully equipped with cook top; fridge with freezer; dishwasher; pots and pans and crockery and cutlery.
A corridor which leads to the 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The bedrooms are two doubles which can be separated upon request and one only twin. The bathrooms are two with shower and one with shower and bathtub.
All the windows are provided with screens, free Wi-Fi internet connection and fans are available upon request.
Garden and Swimming pool: the villa is surrounded by fields and a large farmyard where children can play undisturbed and safely. The pool is above ground (4 x 8 meters and 1.20 meters deep) but delightful none the less and big enough to cool off in.
A natural shaded area equipped to eat outside, offers an impressive setting for al fresco dinners, or simply to relax in front of the breathtaking landscape views over the countryside surrounding pointed with hilltop villages.
The villa is also equipped with wood burning oven and BBQ.
