Description

Villa delle More nestles in the middle of a tiny hamlet on a woodland hilltop, just on the outskirts of San Miniato. A wonderful country hideaway, this property offers total relax, peace and natural beauty in the context of an historical villa, set in 80 acres of private park and woodland. Just 5 minutes from the centre of San Miniato, 1 hr from Florence and 35 minutes from Pisa, the landscape boasts an intact rural countryside with gently ondulating hills, extensive vineyards, olive groves and woodlands. Exceptionally restored by the owner himself, using original foundations and materials, Villa delle More is an example of an accurate, historical restoration and has been left true to the original.
Villa delle More is also a private country home, used by the family on occasions but now dedicated to lucky guests, and the restoration of this beautiful villa has been a family project that has seen all family members involved in some way in its return to splendor.

Villa delle More is also a private country home, used by the family on occasions but now dedicated to lucky guests, and the restoration of this beautiful villa has been a family project that has seen all family members involved in some way in its return to splendor.
Enter through private gates and up a short country gravel road into the villa courtyard. Teeming with flowers, the villa is also surrounded by secular trees that offer shade at all times of the day. Set immediately below the villa but hidden by a shady copse, thus offering total privacy, a strategically placed, highly inviting, furnished infinity pool looks out over the valley with direct views of San Miniato on the opposite hill top. Shady umbrellas surround the pool and old stone seating is poolside and under the trees creating natural areas to relax and just take in the view. A cool drinks fridge is at hand to keep you refreshed!
Villa delle More is intimate and very tranquil. It may either be rented as a villa or at certain times of the year as individual suites. It offers just 4 suites in total, all self-contained with small country kitchens and private garden or terrace areas. The suites in total offer 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms with extra sleeping room for a further 8 guests which is especially useful in the case of large family groups.
The ground floor opens up onto an entrance hall reception area with bar and large long living room with tables for cards and games, sat tv and entertainment.
A beautiful feature of the villa is La Cantinetta dining room, which is for guest use when the property is rented as a whole. Just off the entrance hall, a small flight of 3 steps leads down into La Cantinetta – a truly beautiful space with fantastically carved ceilings and hand laid brick work features, wonderful for large family dining and parties. Together with an adjacent totally professional restaurant kitchen these make the villa a perfect retreat for chefs and would be chefs!
The interior décor has all been studied with loving care by Signora Gabriella, the owner, and is in light pastels, solids and with some contemporary stripes and geometrics. The furniture is comfortable in a classic country style and a mixture of leather sofas and pretty rugs make the living areas totally adorable. Each suite has a distinct and very attractive colour scheme. The suites are spacious and airy and windows are shuttered allowing for both shade and sunshine, keeping rooms cool high Summer and warm during the Autumn months. Air conditioning throughout.

The sleeping areas are divided by heavy curtains and blinds. A super family space or for teenagers even though it is so designer that all the family would love it!

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Just off the centre of Tuscany, Villa delle More is in an excellent location. Equidistant from Florence and Pisa it offers an excellent base for Touring Tuscany. Reknowned of course for its splendid art cities such as Florence and Siena, it's wonderful wine country from the Chianti Classico area to the Val D'Orcia and the excellent Brunello wines, it's wonderful cuisine and splendid coastline. Tuscany really can offer almost everything the discerning traveler might desire. A lush green countryside in spring time that turns yellow, brown and silver high summer, snaking vineyards and shimmering olive groves make up that all so famous Tuscan landscape. A splendid choice for spending quality leisure time.
