Description from owner

Description

Osservatorio is a stunning villa for up to 11guests divided into two independent units. Orione apartment for up to 6 guests.The property is extraordinarily cool and pleasant throughout the summer, thanks to its location on a higher altitude (about 500 AMSL) and the beautiful structure in heavy stones. This magnificent country home offers no compromise in comfort either, providing guests with comfortable sitting areas, satellite televisions and WiFi connection. Attention to details and special touches are a common feature all over the villa.

Further details

The large property is completely fenced in and consists of two immaculately restored buildings, one of which is home to the discreet and friendly owners with their docile dog and a cat. They spend most of their time running their optician shop in town but are available in case of need. Their villa is accessed by a different entrance gate. When they are not in, guests can rely on the helpful caretaker.

The Tuscany region

Approx. driving distance to the nearest town, Gambassi Terme is less than 10mns while San Gimignano and Volterra are easily reached in less than 15mns on panoramic roads. Florence is a great destination for a full day out even by train from Castelfiorentino (20mns drive away) in about 1hr.

San Gimignano

Within minutes walking there is a good restaurant, a beauty centre and tennis court where you can pamper yourselves with body treatments leading you to the evening supper succumbing to the lure of the caretaker's delicious home cooking (available on request) right at your villa.The golf court in Castelfalfi is found about 20mns away and many other interesting sights and eating out places are conveniently listed for guests on the informative villa book available at the villa and written by a professional local guide, who is available on request and for an extra to visit guests in resort.
