Description

The large 800 sqm villa is an ancient historical residence. Villa Siena, an 18th century villa, rises within a se cluded parkland in the hills of Tuscany. The theme of the outdoors continues in the elegant drawing room, formerly a ballroom, whose vaulted ceiling and walls are covered with trompe loeuil paintings of exotic birds, flowers, and plants.

The furniture ranges from antique (18th century) to contemporary, and the wood-panelled walls add to the ambience of sitting in a botanical garden. Two large French doors open into the parkland, an open space to sit and relax under the Tuscan sun.

Accommodation: the villa is set on three floors. Apart from the drawing room, the ground floor also comprises a junior suite for two people with large windows overlooking the park and a terracotta arch housing a library. Nearby is a bathroom with hand-made tiles from Amalfi. On this same level is a majestic dining hall, boasting what is said to be the largest sit-in fireplace in Tuscany.

Nearby is a bathroom with hand-made tiles from Amalfi. On this same level is a majestic dining hall, boasting what is said to be the largest sit-in fireplace in Tuscany. The dining tables seat up to 20 people, and the impression is one of dining in a large medieval banqueting hall.

A gallery of paintings leads to an old stairway going up to the first floor. There are five bedrooms located on this floor, all characterized by tall windows, high ceilings and plenty of light. With views of Siena in the distance, and their antique furniture, all the bedrooms have unique features. The first one is famous for its frescoes representing the Cantico delle Creature di San Francesco, painted by Dario Neri. This double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower. Further along the gallery, the master bedroom boasts a magnificent Murano glass chandelier, frescoes of angels on the ceiling and a magnificent 17th century Siennese painting. Its en-suite bathroom has a bathtub. A third bedroom, called Cor-sanum, has three single four-poster beds, and an en-suite bathroom with shower . The fourth bedroom has two single beds and an open free-standing antique bathtub and sink inside the room. The final bedroom on this floor has a double bed, with a television and a small kitchenette.
